Five Ten Re-Boots a Classic - Crankworx Whistler 2017
@BryceBorlick: They can be re-soled. You just need to speak to Five-ten and find a cobbler locally that stocks their sole material. Usually they will be in an area that has a strong rock climbing community as well as the rubber on climbing shoes can wear in spots well before the shoes themselves are worn out. We have a cobbler near us that does them for C$90 which sounds like a lot but it still cheaper than a new pair of kicks and there is quite a lot of work in removing the old soles, gluing and stitching on the new sole.

Prototype Hayes DH Brake - Crankworx Whistler 2017
I think the key word is "prototypes" Hayes can FEA the shit out of them once they prove that the overall concepts work and then decide on forged, machined or a combination of both. Prefer to see another company offering a mineral oil brake rather than DOT fluid.

Ask Pinkbike: Tubeless Setup, Cleat Trouble, Wide Tires
@g-42: disagree with the Conti statement, I've been running Conti tyres in various flavours (albeit only the premium Protection/ Protection Apex versions) on all my bikes for eight years now and I have never had a problem getting them to fit or seat when inflated. I open my new tyres and let them sit in in their 'rolling' shape, sometimes with a tube inside (if they seemed to not want to unfold) for at least 24 hours, and probably more like 48 hrs, before installing them.

Mathias Fluckinger's Prototype Radon - Mont-Sainte-Anne XC World Cup 2017
Interesting that he runs XTR M9020 Trail brakes rather than the M9000 Race model. I guess he prefers the 'feel' of servo-wave.

Hoedown Throwdown: Race Day 2 - EWS Aspen 2017
K-Edge by the look of things. They make a Garmin mount that replaces a stem spacer. But as she is TFR is could be a race shop custom to work with the Knock block headset.

Onza's Gwin-Designed Aquila DH Tire Released for Sale
@bigburd: the top pros are not interested in optimal wear when their mechanic throws a fresh set on at every race (and when ever they feel like it when training at home).

Push ACS-3 Coil Spring Conversion Kit - First Look
FAST Suspension cartridge for the Pike. A proper range of high and low range compression as well as a wider range of usable rebound. Awesome improvement.

Mavic Deemax - Return of the King?
@WAKIdesigns: Conti Der Kaiser Projekt beats the DHF any day. Rolls faster, grips better and wears better. But the DHF is the best tyre that Maxxis make.

Cockpit Setups - Lenzerheide DH World Cup 2017
@yonibois: yes but Minaar is 6'3" tall so is probably tall enough with long enough arms to justify an 800 mm bar.
