Review: e*thirteen's TRS+ 12-Speed Cassette Offers a Whopping 556% Range
My E13 cassette that came stock with my bike lasted less than one season. Sprint gears rounded over and chain would skip under load. Replaced with SRAM and very happy. In 2nd seasons of hard riding and still performing perfectly. Won’t go back to E13. Too expensive

Movies For Your Monday
@freekandy, your comment made laugh! I love poking fun at the tundra Wookiee slack liners. Curious though, have you ever tried it. It’s not so easy even if it fits in the drum circle hacks sack stick twirling trustafarian Cat

Review: Lake's Race-Ready MX 332 Shoes
I used to ride shoes like this. Five-Tens are so much better for everything I ride. Shoes like this are just a great way to get $$$ from people moving from road to MTB

Trail Knee Guard Round Up: 10 Options for Different Body Types
Great review concept. Review by body type is rad. However, Looking at most of the pads my question is -Do you even crash? Most seem pretty damned useless to me. Why wear something that only covers knee caps? Why even have pads where if you are unlucky enough to have a rock go between ridges on your swanky g-forms it will cripple you (seen that one at Bootleg). I have tried piles of different pads and they ALL slide down in crashes some while pedaling. I currently use flexible hockey tape above the calf to keep my alpine stars pads on. Not having a strap just below bend in knee seems silly if pad goes over calf. The calf is like a greased runway for a sliding pad when your hot a sweaty. Calf shape facilitates sliding. In ref to WAKI's comments I have a road map of scars from rocks and debris just under the pad line. I see no clever solution for this from anyone short of a heavy old school DH knee shin that goes to the ankle. Bottom line. No pad works well enough. Why not write about that? If you are a manufacturer and want to talk with an engineer who has thought deeply about pad design for ideas PM me. I don't have the bandwidth to do anything on my own but am happy to share my thoughts. There are opportunities for improvement.

Video: Mike vs Mike: Geometry Battle - Specialized Stumpjumper vs EVO
I really like this argument! I have 3 bikes. A dj, trail and DH. I would hate to hit the pump track or the jump lines on my trail or DH bike. I also feel uncomfortable on double black knar on my trail bike and have hella fun on the DH. Somewhere in between is my trail bike. My trail bike is a little slack and long on average and it is way fun for a lot of the rocky jumpy trails I ride. Sometimes I wish I had a steeper shorter bike especially when I am climbing a lot and when the trails are smooth and bermed and I want something closer to my dj bike. After watching this, my conclusion is that I need one more bike. Which is the best conclusion I can dream of:)
