A Barely-There Glove, an Ultra-Adjustable Enduro Bike, & a Technical Flat Pedal Shoe - Eurobike 2018
No velcro strap? Say it ain't so! What keeps the glove on your hand? Seriously, go to ebay, find some last year's MX gloves for about $12 shipped, wait, wear, and forget about gloves. They are merely protection for the hand from blisters and scratches from the trail surroundings. It's not rocket science, even Mechanix gloves are fine. Get over yourself. Get out on the trail and wear out your tires, brakes, and self.

@cky78: Sucks to be a Canadian, $$$-wise sometimes. It's why cross-border shopping......

Put some shims or washers under the rear mount. Titanium of course. Funny though.

Rider Killed by Cougar in Washington State
A few years ago while mtn biking at McDowell Mtn Regional Park in Fountain Hills AZ I encountered a mountain lion on the trail about 200 feet away. I backed up another 100 feet to high ground and he ambled off the edge into a wash. I had hoped to see him moving off through the scrub but no such luck. After trying to decide whether to ride a 5 mile loop back to the campground (which was a half mile away) to stay away, I settled on talking loudly and riding slowly so as to not trigger a chase response and made it it back safely. I now wear a pistol when riding in remote AZ. It turned out that the park rangers knew of 4 lions in the park. A good sized can of bear spray would also be helpful, but a cougar can leap about 25-30 feet WITHOUT a running start.

Moto Cross-Pollination at Fox Head - Interview
As a long-time ex-dirtbiker and MX/Hare Scrambles/Enduro rider (40 years total) I want to know why the designers of Mountain Bike helmets do not seem to get that visors serve several purposes, and that aesthetics is only secondary. If the visor cannot be lowered enough to shade your eyes from the sun or from branches. WTF good is it? I had a nice Fly Racing Freestone with an ADJUSTABLE visor that could be lowered enough to serve both functions. I also modified the adjustment slot in the center to allow it to drop even further than the wizards at Fly had conceived of. Unfortunately I left it on the tailgate of my truck and who knows where it is now (my very bad). I dare any PB commenters to tell me of a helmet that allows me to adjust the visor to serve a useful purpose, please, because I need a new helmet. My stance on the visor is that I DO NOT need it as an air scoop, which is all it is when pointing upward, or not being adjustable, or long enough.

Makken & Vinny T's Snowy POV - Video
They make it look not so sketchy, but I would bet it's very sketchy. At the least the board bridge would have been. Maybe I am just a pussy though.

Nordest Cycles Introduces a Titanium "Enduro" Hardtail With a Pinion Gearbox
@jakevw: Thx for the link. I didn't think of the need for that either, but cannot quite figure it out. Does it not have to have a second place for it to come apart (removing the dropout/axle adjust section) in order to open it up enough to get the belt in place? Enlighten me if you can.
