I've never watched F1, I hardly check pinkbike anymore, but I'm happy to be subscribed to the Pinkbike farming hour!

Video: Neko Mulally Tests if a Lighter Bike is Faster for Racing
@seb-stott: So, what you're saying is that I am right to strap several water bottles to my frame rather than wearing a backpack?

Specialized Launches New 2FO DH Shoes
I just tie them loose enough to act like slip-ons. It worked back when I used to skate and it works on a bike as well! I'm not pulling up unless I'm clipped in.

Video: Saturday Sends #7
This week I didn't watch Friday Fails until right before Saturday Sends and every jump in this video I instinctively clenched like I thought I was going to see someone die on a jump that big!

Specialized Launches New 2FO DH Shoes
@cogsci: The width was the problem. It felt like my feet were hitting the sides of the shoe and being forced upward on each side, as though I'd run out of room on the footbed. On shoes with more flexible sides my feet can force them outward for some extra room. For example, back when I was still trying to cram my feet into Vans you could see the sides of the shoe extending beyond the sole to give my feet more room. The Specialized was way more stiff, so my feet just contorted upward on each side.

Specialized Launches New 2FO DH Shoes
@cogsci: I tried Roost Flats because a lot of people said the toe box was wider, but they felt super tight to me, even going a size up. Whether or not Freeriders have a narrower toe box it feels less stiff than the Specialized one, letting my foot stretch the shoe.

Tested: Does a Lockout Actually Make Climbing Faster?
@fartymarty: I love my single speed but find that it doesn't really change the way I pedal on a geared bike. I think that I unconsciously adapt to the way the bike "wants" to be ridden (aggressive climbing on the SS & lazy spinning on the gears). I suppose people who ride this way might be more affected (psychologically if not actually) by inefficient suspension designs.

Video: Joey Gough's Top 40 Clips As She Approaches 40
@loho: My favorite rider for sure! Her videos most perfectly capture the stoke of my days dirt jumping on a friend's bmx, doing it for the thrill, before strava had even been invented. She's the rider I most aspire to be like!

Pinkbike Poll: How Important Are Water Bottles?
I've always rigged up a way to carry two bottles on frames not meant for them. I'm currently thinking about how to get more on the bike. Where I live it's all long climbs and then long, single descents, so the bottles are all empty when it's time to have fun.
