Crankworx Adds Dual Slalom to World Tour & Announces 2019 Schedule
What exactly is so much better? The exorbitant money and space needed to build a good track, or the fact that after the first corner we most often see a procession down the hill? 4X could be great, but apparently not enough venues can build a good track to be used once a year.

Crankworx Adds Dual Slalom to World Tour & Announces 2019 Schedule
Imho, the rise of 4X killed DS. Then 4X died by itself. We do not need to go through that circle again. But so stoked to see DS rise again. How great would a DS world cup as a pre-event for the DH, similar to XC short track, be?

Renthal Announces Zero Rise Handlebar
@R-M-R: SJP is correct. The previous posts are about high rise bar vs. spacers & low rise bar. If you have your high rise bar rolled forward, than you can achieve exactly the same position by spacers plus a longer stem (fashion police might object though) with a low rise.

Pinkbike Poll: How Much Does a Bike's Climbing Performance Matter to You?
It matters not because I like climbing too much, but because it means I will be able to ride more downhill and access more trails within the same amount of time. I could achieve the same by riding an ebike, but I am not giving in to that temptation. Down-Country rocks!

Jolanda Neff Joins Trek Factory Racing
Nice to see Jolanda on a nice bike. Her last one was a bit... kross?

2019 UCI MTB Rulebook Fixes DH Finals Start Order, Allows For Mismatched Wheel Sizes & More
29" in the front, 650b in the rear could become the winning formula in DH, especially for smaller riders. It is hard to see any disadvantage of a 29er front wheel, but the tire rub in the rear is a real issue for some riders. For sure I would ride it!

The Cutaway Special - Interbike 2018
@Sardine: Pinion has to assume the strongest riders (think about that broken effigear gear box at the start of a DH world cup race). Some of them can produce more than 2000 W. Assuming 100 RPM, that already creates 191 Nm. But of course, power output when pedaling is not smooth. Assuming it follow a sinus curve, you get to a maximum torque of 270 Nm.

The Cutaway Special - Interbike 2018
If you calculate the torque you create by pedaling, it is actually not far off a small car.

Tariffs on Chinese Bicycles & Parts Will Begin Next Week
One outcome of this is that Taiwanese assembly companies are now fully packed with orders, because every brand with US assembly is now looking to move it to Taiwan. So the frames will still be made in the same Chinese factory, then shipped to Taiwan to do a few operations like painting and assembly. Then it gets shipped to US as made in Taiwan. Big looser will be the people working in an US assembly line. I wonder how many of them will vote for Trump because some cheap „Chinese „ stole their job? And then the products get more expensive, because the detour through Taiwan causes additional cost. Big winner is Taiwan that gets more business and import taxes. And do not think this is something that only happens in US. EU has a moderate 50% tax on many bicycle parts imported from China, only with the difference that assembly factories can get exceptions.

Lenzerheide MTB World Championships Promises to be One Wild Ride
Being Swiss, I feel offended by this cheesy video. The Swiss tourism office really likes to hype up all stereotypes about Switzerland.
