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.

Charge Bikes and Fabric 2018 - First Look
It certainly looks like a nice saddle. Lovely design. Tried one for 20 minutes on trainer... too soft, caused numbness.

Ask Pinkbike: Fork Progression, Climbing Tips, and Broken Spokes
Well I got something from this: never noticed someone misuse 'literally' before, now all the archer 'figuratively' jokes make sense.

e*thirteen TRSr SL Carbon Wheels - First Look
Woo! I agree. Would be great to gather more info like this: But what wheelbuilder wants their feet held to the fire? I don't see any solid numbers from any vendor, so must be they like living in the shadows of marketing. Because Carbon...

e*thirteen TRSr SL Carbon Wheels - First Look
I wish vendors would post stiffness numbers. Or this review would gather more details like spoke and flange sizes. As is the review could be qualitative view of a Stradivarius but with repeated suggestions that these are durable even though only a 1 year warranty. I'm currently buying parts for a new rear wheel. Considered lightbicycle but probably going to just get stans arch. Because everything legit that I've read indicates spoke thickness and flanges control everything, and rim is distant 3rd. Anyone have numbers that indicate something different for wheel stiffness when carbon is involved?
