NSMBA Embraces Building Diversity in the Mountain Bike Community
In my former area - the bro culture was pretty unfriendly to women riders. Women showed up once or twice and the bros always wondered why they didn't stick around for more rides... maybe other areas don't treat female riders like pieces of meat/objects of sexualization - but I am guessing my old stomping ground was too unique...

Mike VS Mike: How We'd Spend Our Money - Video
Would the author care to elaborate on this opening example of things that don't go together? "Social justice warriors and rationality." Seems like an unhelpful cheapshot - so wondering what understandings and motivations are behind the words.

All In Multitool – Review
Quality may be amazing, but at some point cranks are going to change again, and this one won't fit anymore. Better Options - if light, and you want to deal with little bits that will get lost in the leaves: 1. the Presta Ratchet for $25 https://www.prestacycle.com/product/prestaratchet-multi-tool-kit-ratchet-wtire-lever-handle/ 2. Or Swapable Fix It Sticks for $30. Duct tape to saddle. http://fixitsticks.com/replaceables The real smart choice: If you want a tool that will fix everything is all connected so you won't loose it in the leaves - and could fit in the space under your saddle for 50 grams more and $28 The Crank Brothers M17 is probably your best bet: https://www.crankbrothers.com/tools_M17

Shimano XT Di2 - Double Header Review
I saw the function and value of Di2 back when the road system came out - and I watched the front der auto trim as we shifted through the cogs. I also see the value of MTB Di2 when you are talking about a 2x system. If you need a 2x system, the ability to simply shift up and down and let the computer move your front der when needed is definitely an advance. However, as the reviewers share - most people don't need a 2x any more. Because of this, in my opinion, it is a hard to argue any real technical advantage of motorized shifting when we are only working with a single, rear derailleur.

Randoms Round 2 – Sea Otter 2017
Props to NUUN for bringing the band. I have been using their drinks for about 7 years now. My favorite electrolyte option.
