Where Should Bernard Kerr Do Our Stoppie Challenge?
Boo! Yur choices suck. My vote is stoppie around the top of Moses, ideally after climbing primrose: https://www.mountainproject.com/v/primrose-dihedrals/105717748

Have Your Say on the Ever-Changing Bike Standards
Huge respect to King for my ss hub. Is hard to imagine how the conversation will go, other than someone pushing for a 'final standard' (super boost 157 for the rear), some people agreeing, and other people resisting. I sure wish the final result will be modular and back compatible with existing standards (including 9x135) but flange location is too important... not sure how there can be a middle ground, the flanges get located, then the brake rotor and everything follows from there. I'd feel really good if there was an actual engineering analysis of what is the actual necessary flange spacing. Go ahead and do some rigorous SAE type work, determine an answer that is true forever, then stop thinking about it. I suspect the right answer for hubs with big 'ol nasty cassettes involves an asymmetric frame...

Have Your Say on the Ever-Changing Bike Standards
Why stop at 20? And are you sure 12 isn't enough? Why stop at 110? Why stop at 150?

Pinion and Gates talk about their new partnership in the US - Interbike 2017
I've got huge respect for gates belts. Love that I can replace expensive OEM belts with theirs which are often more durable than the originals. But for bikes... I know several people who used to have gates belt drive... wasn't reliable, was a huge pain in the ass, expensive. So now gates' bike division has joined up with pinion? Makes me think the actual goal is to put kooky ideas together in the same basket? Hey... maybe they should also sell Lauf forks?

Yeti SB5 Turq - Review
I really appreciate the sizing comparison tables. Very nice, thank you. I totally expected a glowing review, love and am surprised that you can criticize the mighty yeti. Sure is a pretty bike but I agree, I demoed one and was happy to get back on my hardtail.

Evergreen's Alpine Baldy Project - Video
@mtnbykr05: ollalie oab to Mt Washington trail is also 4k, and I thought much harder than RR. I think folks round here will be getting fitter in the next few years.

Jenny Rissveds to Miss World Champs
@kjjohnson: Hopefully this press announcement is just part of the long war? Embarrass the federation, dude gets fired/reprimanded and Sweden and its people get representation at the race. Can't see politicians being pleased by this behavior.

Jenny Rissveds to Miss World Champs
From watching a few marketing videos I think jenni is crazy (in a good way that dedicated athletes must be crazy), and Thomas sure came across well in some coaching vids, seemed really down to earth and a good human. Is hard to blame them. But Jeese, gotta have serious butt hurt on all sides to have no representative for the world champs. I really hope this ends well for jenni and Thomas but I have a sad suspicion they are out of their depth. Probably the best would have been to suck it up and let the horrible Swedish commission to win, at least she'd get to race. Now no matter how the legalities are decided there is no racing. Wouldn't it be more effective to force the Swedish team to pay for consequence of illegal rule?

My Crusade - Opinion
I don't think this holds a candle to the real holy cruisade: why can you only buy split ring lock washers at hardware stores? That's the kind of washer that has no modern use. Wave washers, star washers, etc actually have a reason to exist, but can only get them paying big bucks from specialty mail order.

Chris Akrigg: The Guide Raw - Video
Having just built a new wheel for my mtb I thought the senseless wheel cruelty was painful to watch. The drop bars looked so uncomfortable - I'm in the trailbike camp. And jeese, didn't bring nearly enough calories.
