Revisiting the Birthplace of Shimano
I had a metal xt pad separate from its holder. The rivets failed. I used the holder for braking for final 20 miles of race with awful sounds. Shimano sent me new brake pads and a new rotor.

Mountain Biking's Troubled Roots & the Hope in Marin County
I think what would make me feel best; get a whole bunch of riders and swarms of tourists to move to Marin, advocate for trail access and totally get up the ass of everyone in Marin, create an even more toxic stew for everyone. I’m not going there, used to ride there in the early 90s. I remember when the rangers drove way out on a favorite trail to start installing no bike signs all over these remote areas. There was no review. Rangers were nice folk and were sad to share the news, and it was the equestrians. So... birthplace of mtb! Beautiful place! Go move to fair fax and live the Dream!!

Video: Kona Launches New Aluminum Hei Hei Bikes
Nice video: 1) New Zealand is always sunny 2) and there is no bike theft 3) Kiwis are so fit they can ride all day in a cotton shirt and not show any sweat. I think #3 is actually true.

From the Top: Skratch Lab's Allen Lim - 'Sports Nutrition is About What You Do in Your Kitchen, Not on the Bike'
I love scratch's product (drink mix) but I think it is too expensive for what it is. I splurge on tailwind for 6+ hour races but still must supplement with gels, for training clif bars work and seem to be a great value. I'd love to hear what he thinks of tailwind as I think he's a real expert. Ps : Just went and bought 2 of his books, I'm going to try and wean myself off clif products.

The Feces that Broke the Camel's Back
I pick up and carry but my wife leaves the bag hidden off trail, picks it up on the way back, less likely to be smooshed into her backpack. Neither of us would leave the crap out there, sheesh. Seems like there’s a real issue with Vancouver dog owners.

The Feces that Broke the Camel's Back
I’ve had my smiling face sprayed with horse and dog poop. Not that I’m happy with either but Dog poop is uncountably worse - not even the same ballpark.

Video: The Cannondale / Pong Concept Bike
Good lord!!! The poor customer! Quote that comes to mind: "when all you have is a hammer everything looks like a nail." When pong discovered cnc aluminum he forgot about everything else.

I remember a big article about the v4000 and pong in the seattle times so long ago. Seemed unbelievable at the time, like not believable, like some sort of scam. Fanciful stuff but really put me off Cannondale. Seriously awesome to see it moving on video. Thanks so much for sharing.

Lot of those shots were quite far from he bikers. Amazes me how much extra work is done by the photographer.
