Industry Veteran Andrew Bernstein Critically Injured in Boulder Hit and Run - Updated 7/31
@mattsavage: The most common charge in Colorado for these types of crime is Careless Driving Causing Injury. It's a misdemeanor traffic offense with up to one year in jail. The hit and run element adds an additional charge, here a felony since serious bodily injury occurred. If they catch the person and can prove it up, there will likely be jail time and probation. If the person had stayed, they likely would have received one year of probation, no jail, and community service.

Fanny Packs For All? High Above's Lookout Pack - Review
I've got the Radpack, too. It's perfect for short rides, and I have never experienced bouncing or movement, either. It's so well constructed.

Guerrilla Gravity Launches 2018 Updates
@DBone95: I had a bottom bracket creak on the first ride. GG then regreased and reinstalled it. 75 rides or so and 15 months later, no squeaks! It's really been reliable.

Niner Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy with Pending Sale to Colorado Investment Group
@tcmtnbikr: This is not a Chapter 7 bankruptcy; it is filed under Chapter 11. The difference matters because one, Chapter 7, leads to liquidation of assets and may have the effect of leaving all of the creditors holding the bag. The other, Chapter 11, is a reorganization where the debtor formulates a plan to continue operations and to pay back its creditors without a discharge of the debt. We don't know the specifics of the plan yet, but the likely result is that Niner will simply try to use its Chapter 11 bankruptcy to renegotiate the terms of repayment with its creditors.

Pearl Izumi Versa Pant - Review
@ClaytonMarkin: +1 on Adidas warmups as great, affordable winter riding pants. A nice, tapered pair is around $35. The breath and wear well.

Poll - How Clean is EWS Racing?
I think you're right that doping alone can't make a fit dude into a professional WC DH or Enduro racer. But, with marginal gains being the name of the game, two equally skilled riders have the potential to separate themselves with PED's. In particular, using testosterone as a means to recover during multi-day events (even if it's just practice runs on one day) would help. EPO would give a rider the ability to crank harder and longer during the pedaly bits and arrive at the start of stages much fresher. Even in DH, smaller riders could use steroids to develop more strength.

Guerrilla Gravity Debuts "Smash" 29er
I'm not a bike reviewer, but I've been out maybe 50 or 60 times on my Trail Pistol. On the boring/generic side, it doesn't squeak, there's no play at the pivot points, and it hasn't betrayed me with any really awkward landings. On the ride feel side of things, it's very stout in the sense it holds a line through the rough very well, but it also feels very direct when plowing chunk, without the magic carpet sensation of a huge travel bike. This doesn't bother me. From a geometry standpoint, it felt very upright with a steeper seat tube angle and a higher front end when I first started riding it. Now it feels like second nature climbing this way. I also like how the seat gets straight out of my way when I drop it. Finally, the Trail Pistol doesn't pop off of stuff like some other bikes with shorter wheel bases. I'll give that up, though, when I'm going like a bat out of hell down a steep straightaway with the sense that bike is stable as stable can be. That being said, it manuals fine when you need it to. In all of those senses, it is a straightforward and predictable bike with no quirks in ride or suspension. I dig it.
