Video: ReTyre is a Modular Tyre That Lets You Zip on the Tread You Need
This has no place on Pinkbike, no way this holds up to serious mtb riding. But for my hub gear/covered chain commuter it is awesome. It's a huge pain to change the rear tire on that, which I why I don't do that unless it needs to be replaced.

Video: Wyn Masters Speaks to Yoann Barelli on Sponsorship and Salaries in Pro MTB
@Lanebobane: don't forget that the a lot of the costs of the 10k bike are not manufacturing costs. Giving one away directly from the factory is a lot cheaper, especially if you have the capacity to make more than you can sell. The 50k contract is 50k expenses for the company. But I bet a non dtc brand can sponsor 20 10k bikes for only that money. Not that I'm implying bike shops or manufacturers rip off consumers . It's just how things work.The factory sells the bike to the shop for more than it costs to make it. The shop needs to pay the employees. Both need to account for models and sizes that don't sell and have to go on sale etc. Giving away product is always cheaper than giving away money.

Aegean Trails Wants to Build an Epic Trail on Mount Olympus
From where I am, I can get a return flight to Greece in that period for 130 euros. Good luck finding a pro trail builder that will work a whole week for that money. That aside, it can be a fun way to spend your holiday, no?

As they say, 'it doesn't get easier, you just go faster'. And indeed, that also means you just crash harder.

@Stokedonthis: Thanks. I couldn't even make out what language it was, I speak some German but 'Digger' I had not hear of before.

Now THAT Was A Bike: Nico Vouilloz's Sunn Radical+
Yeah, looks smart. Would this work with modern large range cassettes as well though?

Bike vs Bike - Nino Schurter and Kate Courtney's Scott Sparks
Yes. Was thinking same. Few years ago when I was arguing the physics of low rolling resistance with wide tires so many were saying 'but the pros are running narrow tires and they know best' . Nope. It takes time to adapt if you invested so much in training with a particular type of setup. But now they've adapted and of course it's faster. Either that or they just get paid to show this. :-)

MTB on a Budget: Where to Spend & Where to Save on Bike Parts
I agree on where to spend vs where to save mostly. Price ranges are way too high though. Pretty decent entry level trailbike like Canyon Neuron AL sells complete with Fox 34 Rhythm/DPS, GX/NX mix & dropper for 2300 euros. Nothing on that needs immediate replacement for any beginner. So really don't spend 2500 on a frame unless you really know what you want and you don't need an article like this....
