Review: EXT ERA V2.1 Fork
The zip tie trick has been a thing with the Era fork since it launched, which is so disappointing, and stops me from considering it. I'd feel cheated if I paid over £1500 for a fork, and had to stick zip ties down it for it to work optimally.

Video: This Has Never Happened Before | Inside the Tape With Ben Cathro
For me, this is also something I can’t quite get over, as much as I’d have liked the race to happen. If someone had a serious accident and the medics couldn’t get to them, the whole weekend (and potentially race series) would be f*cked. Then the organisers would be even more cautious in future. But, does this show some poor planning by the medical team? Surely they should have planned for different scenarios and be able to cope with the weather. Rain does tend to happen in outdoor sports, especially the mountains.

Review: Hunt Proven Carbon Wheelset
Hunt's customer service team are good. I found getting a replacement in the past pretty drama free. But it has to be that way, as the products are mediocre. Won't be buying anything else from them. And this sounds like a continuation of the way they do things. Just cheap OEM stuff, bundled together with Hunt engravings on them, marketed to hell, and with fair warranties on them.

Well this has worked for him, because before this announcement I'd never heard of him. (Had to go and look him up on rootsandrain...)

5 Key Stats From Downhill Racers in the Pinkbike State of the Sport Survey
@bananowy: Thanks for bringing this up. Earning £80k+ (100k USD) puts someone in the top 5% of earners in the UK. And frankly DH racing is not all that valuable to society! Yes, we love it, and yes it's high risk, but if money is your sole objective as a professional athelete go and compete in a more mainstream sport, or be more entrepreneurial in attracting new sponsors. A MTB pro is a lifestyle choice. I wouldn't complain if I was getting free bikes, kit, travel, training camps, a lifestyle that revolves around bikes, and 50k USD salary on top.
