Mavic Saved by Bourellier Group, Focus to Return to Wheels
Fingers crossed this works out for them. Glad to hear they will be returning focus to the core of the brand, vs continued dilution into accessories. Seems like the right approach given the pandemic, economy, etc Mavic has been at it a long time, it would be a shame for them to fade away at this point.

BH Launches New Range of More Affordable Carbon XC Hardtails
@pourquois-pas: It’s not really that the derailleur is poor quality. Clearly it’s easy enough to bend any derailleur inwards by dropping the bike or hitting a trail obstacle. (Thus allowing it to shift the chain into the spokes.) A novice rider might not realize they have damaged their derailleur in such a way, (often by mishandling their bike during storage or transport) and might unwittingly power shift into their lowest cog, and jam the chain into the spokes. As you become a more experienced rider, it’s an easy situation to avoid, but clearly it is enough of a problem that most new bikes come with some form or spoke-protector since the 1970s.

Those plastic spoke protectors behind the cassette on the lower end models give new meaning to ‘pie plate’! Nice looking bikes.

Kona Release Shonky DJ Bike in Completes
Yeah you’ve gotta watch for that. My only real DJ injury was some shoulder pain that lasted for a few months, after I went OTB and hit my shoulder on the ground. Ironically it was on the smallest jump set- My last run of the day, on the way to the car park. Totally zoned-out, thinking about what to make for dinner.

Honestly, dirt jumping isn’t that dangerous, at least considering what you might find at your local forest/jump park. The speeds are actually slower than enduro or even general trail riding, and there are a lot less trees, sharp rocks and obstacles to hit. The tall table tops and gap jumps look scary, but are actually fairly easy to bail out of. If you fuck up in the air, it’s easy enough to tuck and roll, and the downwards-sloped landing will catch you and soften your impact. The key part is to get your speed right- But that’s easily learned by watching other people, and working your way up jump sizes.

Specialized Begins Selling Equipment Through Backcountry & CompetitiveCyclist.com
Leave it to Specialized to pick an online partner with a similarly villainous reputation for legal frivolity. Cannondale and MEC, Trek and REI, Specialized and Backcountry. A perfect match!

Rapha Announces New Line of Cycling Eyewear
I want to hate on these, but they look pretty stylish. ‘Made in Italy’ suggests these are probably made by Luxottica, same as Oakley, Ray Bans, and everything else.
