Movies For Your Monday
That "Why Not" edit is completely insane! BMX riders are some of the most talented, fearless, and underrated athletes in all of sport. The stuff these guys do seems to defy the rules of physics. I'm always amazed these guys have the guts to get back up and try a feature again and again after seeing their crashes.

Must Watch: Steve Vanderhoek in 'Risk is Reward'
Awesome edit! It's so hard capture how steep a slope is on video, but this does a great job. I realize it's all about progression, but the slabs North Shore guys ride are just unreal. The risk involved is huge...misjudge your speed and you're almost certainly looking at broken bones. I think I'm just getting old...

2021 Rocky Mountain Growler 20 with upgrades, size XL This bike is brand new. I have never sat on the bike or turned a single pedal stroke. I purchased the last 2021 Rocky Mountain Growler 20 I could find anywhere. The shop I purchased it from made the following upgrades before shipping it to me: - Rockshox Domain RC, 38 mm stanchions, 150 mm travel - WTB 29x2.6 Vigilante Tires - Wheels set up tubeless - 203 mm Jagwire front brake rotor installed - Raceface Chester pedals **I'll include the original fork and tires/tubes, if you're interested. Here is a link to the factory specs: https://resources.bikes.com/en/bikes/growler/2021 This bike has fantastic geometry! There is a small imperfection in the factory paint. This was the last XL Growler 20 I could find in the U.S., so I was willing to accept the blemish. I live between Lynchburg, VA and Roanoke, VA and will be happy to meet within an hour of either location.

- This is a new, never used Suntour XCM 34 Boost fork with 130 mm of travel. The shop I bought my RM Growler from replaced this fork before they shipped the bike to me. They included the fork in the shipping box. I did notice a few scratches at the top of the fork crown (see pictures). I think this happened during shipping. - Fork is a take-off of an XL 2021 Rocky Mountain Growler 20 - Steerer tube is 7.5 inches long - The fork comes with a thru axle. This is a very solid looking fork.

Review: Starling Spur - No Derailleur, No Worries?
Wow! What a thorough and thoughtful review. The suspension analysis and efficiency comparison with the Privateer were impressive additions. I know I'm in the minority, but I'd gladly trade some uphill efficiency to a dramatic decrease in drivetrain maintenance and better handling. I'm a big guy (~250lbs) and chew through drivetrain components. I also tend to ride in wet conditions with admittedly poor pedaling technique. I need to do the math, but I suspect over a few years the increased cost of the gearbox would be more than offset by what I spend in new drivetrain parts. I'd like to see the Effigear Mimic on a mid-travel bike with a burly air fork. I'm glad there are builders like Starling that will experiment with new ideas and good on Pinkbike for giving this bike a full review.

Their riding was amazing. I'm sure some of those features are crazy hard and they made it look so easy. Those trails look like so much fun!

Video: Jumping from a Helicopter & Other Cyclocross Bike Stunts with Kenny Belaey
A cross bike on A-Line sounds very cool. For some reason this edit doesn't work for me. As an earlier comment noted, it takes itself a bit too seriously.
