Review: Industry Nine's New Hydra Hubs Have 690 Points of Engagement
So I'm not one to brag but I actually had an idea like this. I'm not an engineer either. I said to myself, self if you can use three pawls for engagement, then if you do 6 but stagger it then you can cut your engagement degrees in half. And if you put in 12 and stagger them all at any given time you'll have three engaged only 30 degrees of Engagement between them instead of 90. And if you put it in a shitload then you can take it up to 690. I never actually thought of that number at the time but the theory is valid

Atherton Bikes Confirm Team Details & Show Full Bike For the First Time
I really enjoy reading all the comments. Is this Frame the prettiest frame? I don't think so. But I'm an old guy just a couple of slots down from dentist I've been riding since I was a nationally-ranked BMX racer in the 80s and I've done Ironman Triathlon more than once. I see all these people and I have no idea who they are, but they say all this is ugly or that is ugly or XTR is late I'm moving to Sram. I ride a 2012 Turner 5 spot. It's ugly. I admit it. But I have never ever ever ever in my life heard anyone say to me on your left. I don't understand why people want a pretty frame. I want something that's fast and works. Actually I do have a pretty frame, it's my 1999 Rocky Mountain blizzard hardtail. That's the best-looking bike in my stable. And for those that say that sram shifts better than XTR , I haven't heard those people say on your left either. These guys can prototype a bike in one day. Design it make your lugs, fit in pre-made carbon tubes like I had on my Trek 2100 road bike back in the day of my Triathlon career. Are they going to make production frames like this? I don't think so. Then there's all the people that say make it longer, lower, slacker. The numbers that work for you, work for you. I have a -2 headset in my Turner but everything else is legit and works for me. Don't fall into the marketing hype. Man I just realized I'm screwed. Now that I said I have a Turner people are going to say DW fanboy. 40% of my bikes are DW but I think it's shock and Fork that make the bike more than anything. Maybe the rider too. Get your bike dialed and no matter what it looks like you can say all those dentist and 16 year old Warehouse managers on the trail.

Interview: Aaron Gwin on His Break With YT & Becoming a Team Owner
I haven't seen any comments regarding the Moto connection to this team but I think it's really significant. I know AG has his own trainer but I can't help but notice the connection of Ryan Dungey to the team. Ryan Dungey was trained by Aldon Baker who is known as a trainer of Champions. I think it's 13 of 17 championships he's won in the last little while and there are a couple that he didn't win due to injury. Ryan Dungey wasn't as fast as other guys but he was more consistent. This goes the same for many other of the Baker trained Motocross and Supercross champions with Jason Anderson winning last year Supercross championship as the latest. So now we have Aaron Gwin who is arguably the fastest rider teaming up with someone who is super consistent. Aldon Baker was a cyclist who qualified for the Olympics for I believe South Africa. All of his motorcycle riders train on bicycles. I'm not a big fan of Aaron because I'm Canadian and I like the underdog but it's going to be hard to bet against him. Nice work.

Video: A Wild Year in Review from The Flannel Crew
Being a b c boy I have high expectations. I went to work in Calgary for a couple of months a few years ago and went out to Moose Mountain. It sucked big time. It is certainly not the Moose Mountain that I see these gents have worked on and I appreciate that. Great work boys and I'm not afraid to take my bike to Alberta anymore.

Neko Mulally Has Been Testing a 27.5 / 29 Wheeled Frankenbike
@matlamb: you can run 27.5 in your Triple 8? If that's possible that looks like I can upgrade my Iron Horse 7point and rune to 27.5 because I'm rocking the Triple Eight and a 66 on those

Handlebar Width vs Handling - Are Your Bars Too Wide?
This is absolutely great. I got to go into my shed and try to find all those old handlebars that I couldn't sell for $5 in the buy and sell. So if skinny bars are coming back, does it mean 26 inch is that far off? I still have four bikes that use that diameter of tire. I think I have an old 8-speed XT derailleur as well. I knew in my heart of hearts to keep all that stuff. I am so stoked

Full Replay: Val di Sole DH World Cup 2018
So just the other day a friend of mine told me about Ali G :Respect. And then I watched Aaron Gwin interview with Rob Warner on the chair lift. Is it me or does Rob Warner sound like Ali G?
