Myriam Nicole to Miss Upcoming World Cups Due to Concussion
Listened to the podcast with and the woman from pinkbike racing clearly had a massive concussion and her story of trying to find help was insane. Cathro eventually heard what was going on and put her in touch with some specialists at a concussion lab. Pretty bizarre.

Review: DVO Topaz 3 Air Shock
@covekid: nah, it’s likely because he actually rides his bike and DVO’s last about 11 seconds under someone competent. Lowest of the low spec. The local distro here has had some of his own parts built to go inside.

HQ Tour: Suspension Tech International's NZ-Made Coil Shock
He was the Push distributor here in NZ, it fell apart as he was having endless warranty failures with them. Then as time went on he noticed a big drop in quality, machining swarf in internals. Sending parts back to the US, and they would still insist on charging the customer and then he’d see updated parts appear in the shocks from that failure. There’s a great blog post about it on the internet. He bought a storia from the dealer in NZ. Then built the best from both worlds. Having seen the incredible amount of EXT failures, I wouldn’t touch one with a 10ft pole. Curious to see how well this one lasts and works. Has some big claims in terms of durability and such. But considering how brutal the push, ext, fox offerings have been as of late, surely it can’t be hard to be better.

Check Out: Mons Royale's SS 23 Apparel, A Tiny Torque Wrench & Key Lime Pie Protein Powder
@karatechris: yeah I’m the same, I run just icebreaker t’s. They make a way lighter gsm fabric as well, that is corespun and almost entirely merino. Mons was decent, but now just a fashion brand and is far lower tech than IB.

Video & Photo Story: The Trail Builders Behind Sun Peaks Bike Parks' Major Expansion
We call those a Harley Rake or a powerbox. Tears up the surface, sort of like a scarifier but instead of dragging the teeth though it, it like mulches it up. Like the screws on a snowcat. Leaves a semi-flat surface to be compacted or cut to final grade. Never thought about it for trail building but it would be slick, instead of raking the bajesus out of a surface, especially on a machine built trail. It is carbide tipped, so I image it would also clear out some level of roots as well.

Red Bull Formation Cancelled For 2023
@DylanH93: I haven’t watched rampage since Zink got old. Don’t find it interesting in the slightest anymore. Watch some WC dh when I have the chance. It’s so hard to convey technical riding like rampage and hardline. When I worked in shops for a decade I would often ask customers who their favourite rider was and I eventually watered that question down to did they following any of the racing, etc. I would say less than 10% of customers had any idea about EWS while buying their 170mm 29’er.

Staff Rides: Mike Kazimer's Coil Shock Trek Fuel EX
Like shimano tried to do in the early 2000’s with rapid rise. I’m loving this victory lap for shimano. Coaxial derailleurs, rapid rise, oval chain rings. The dream.

Orange's New Bike Has a Built in Filing Cabinet - Sea Otter 2023
@heavyp: bet you’re fun at parties. Orange made the mistake here, they should have leaned in and called it the Filing Cabinet. Would seem unlikely a Frenchie would ride one either way.

Randoms Round 3 - Sea Otter 2023
I guess the goal is to run a bigger chainring, and have bigger cassette cogs. More chain wrap, and therefore less wear. But otherwise, could just be other e-13 nonsense

@inthenude: Precisely. Schrader would be sweet, this thing is goofy as can be.
