Driven Reaches $1 Million USD Crowd Funding Goal in Just 2 Days & Says it is "Used to the Haters"
Woah lets not throw common sense around on pinkbike, just looking at it I can see a few issues that can't be overcome with modern technology. 1. There would be noticable drag in those little bearings if they are all sealed, if they aren't then they will sieze very easily. 2. The bearings don't positively engage with the 'chainrings', so under high torque loads the cassette, drive ring and/or chainstay will flex causing the drive to either slip or change gear unexpectedly, which will be disasterous. 3. The design can't work with suspension without introducing horrendous complexity in the design, which is a huge market limitation. 4. The design has many more moving parts than a chain drive and would be very expensive to maintain or repair, would also need repairing more often. 5. The accessibility to the gear actuator would be difficult and hard to access to service. 6. The design won't be any more efficient or less problematic than a chain drive. 7. The drive shaft basically necessitates the use of carbon for the required stiffness and weight, increasing cost and environmental impact. 8. The gears could shift unexpectedly if the chainstay flexes. There's probably a heap more issues...

@Narro2: bitcoin is a ponzi scheme through and through, most shares are really in a way, the value of a company isn't reflected on its worth but on how much money is being invested in it.

More Than 50% of Pro Riders Feel They Wouldn't be Adequately Financially Supported After Injury - State of the Sport Survey
The systemic misinformation that so many Americans are a victim of, simply due to capitalist agendas being pushed onto them 24/7 is quite heart breaking, so many seem so afraid of 'socialism', not realising that not everything is an ultimatum, free healthcare doesn't mean the whole population will just stop working and the economy will crash. I've lived in England, New Zealand and now Australia, I've broken my neck, wrist, leg, elbow, ribs and foot from riding as well as numerous other hospital visits... never paid a cent in hospital fees, maybe a few bucks for a prescription, a few bucks for ambulance insurance and the annual medicare levy, with Oz being the only place that charges the latter two fees. America needs to wake up and embrace free healthcare as a basic right for all.

How Much Do Professional Mountain Bikers Get Paid? - Pinkbike's State of the Sport Survey
Looking at the trends on the bar charts there is only 1 male athlete paid 500k+ and competes most likely in dh or slopestyle... slopestyle being the big surprise there really, with a big upward trend toward the higher end of the pay bracket

Judges' Results: X Games Real MTB
Watching it again Semenuk's edit still doesn't do it for me, some banger combo tricks but if you have to show everything in slow mo to be able to see it, is it really that impressive? Lets not forget we live life in real time, watching it in person without rewind, most people would have no clue what they just watched, unlike Brage's riding. Imo his edit had way too much slow mo, didnt have many impressive or unique features and just a lot of tricks, which most people don't really relate to as the average rider doesn't do many, if any, tricks.
