Review: Atherton 130.X - The Lugged Carbon Cruiser
Ill offer you a review of the 170. I demo'd it at Dyfi a few weeks ago. It was fantastic. Best way I can describe it after 30 odd years of biking (and about 15 gravity oriented) is that it rides like Ive always wanted a bike to ride. It pedals fine and descends fantastically. And looks even better in the flesh than on a screen. So good I ordered one, the same day!

Video: My Last Chance To Become World Champion - Pinkbike Racing S2E1
A film with such a strong thread of humanity in it, fantastic stuff. Such a healthy reminder of the struggles these young riders go through as they grow up and compete at the same time. Clearly Ben has got it spot on with his fatherly approach to support and its clear how much he cares. The world needs more people like you Ben, more power to you, the team and the filmmakers who told the story.

GCN+ to Close as Warner Bros. Discovery Looks to Consolidate Streaming Services [Updated with Information from WBD]
Pinkbikes stats earlier in the year were misleading. They should run a poll to gather stats on who watched under redbull versus now. All my riding friends, including myself didnt watch this year. That wasnt just about the price, that was also about the quality of the highlights to demonstrate value in subscribing. Thats the first season in forever I havent seen. Id be interested to see real stats of how people feel and whether people are paying.

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly: Pinkbike Editors' Favorite Clipless Shoes
Always amazes me in reviews on here for both flat and clipless shoes, they never cover Specialized. Not only great shoes in terms of quality but also lightweight and most critically, the quickest drying I have come across. You can literally dry them out while wearing them as soon as the rain stops and they are the only pair of shoes Ive had dry out overnight.
Added 4 photos to Buysell

Signa Sports United's Internetstores GmbH Declares Insolvency
Just a standard story of a parent company who borrowed big to acquire companies, coming off the back of a low interest financing and having to finance at higher rates which they cannot afford. It happens in every recession (yes we are in one) and its not just the bike sector. This story is playing out everywhere, it just appears first in the most overleveraged places. We are going to see more brands and companies go. Sadly this is just the start. And I do agree that gloating over mass job losses and how that impacts individuals lives and livelihoods is a bit distasteful. You never know when it might be you and it is a thoroughly unpleasant uphill struggle.

Rampage Judge Darren Berrecloth Speaks Out On 2023 Event
Such good insight and the kind of thing that needs to be included pre-event. That said all riders get robbed because 10k to attend and cover costs is measly considering the risk and the fact that it doesnt even cover Euro riders costs.

9 Thoughts on Red Bull Rampage 2023
'Frustration about judging has become disrespectful to the riders' Not really, other than trolls, its directed at the judging. Its not even directed at the judges but the scoring system. Most viewers come to see a freeride competition but the spirit of rampage is being lost as it becomes about slopestyle tricks. The main problem is that redbull isnt transparent around the scoring and how it works, thus everyone thinks it is too subjective. Maybe it is, but the only way to quash that is through transparency. And while red bull do deserve credit for such a marque event, maybe they could pay the riders more than US10k to attend. As Ollie Wilkins mentioned in a recent podcast, that has to cover flights (for the whole crew), hotels, tools, transport, food. Essentially the riders are riding for free (or paying to ride if coming from Europe). Considering the significant media coverage of some of the biggest tricks that extends well outside the sport, they could and should be paying riders to ride....and risk their lives.
