Interview: Talking About Tires With Bontrager, e*thirteen, Michelin, and More
@pink505: eh. $100 per tire for a relatively low volume part that requires ongoing mold maintenance and relatively high shipping costs is pretty fair. The average bike shop might have a dozen of a given tire in stock while the average automotive shop will have dozens of any given tire in stock and there a lot more auto tire shops than bike shops. Plus. High end auto tires are far more expensive than bike tires. A set of winter tires for my lightning set me back $1500.

E*thirteen Announces New Close Range & Wide Range Cassettes
Honestly, I had to buy a Helix R last year during the parts shortage to get my Sram powered bike back moving again after I bent a cog on my XO1 cassette. Wasn't expecting much, but honestly I'm a convert now. Can't say I'm super impressed with E13 wheels as my brother's YT came with them and they seem to be made of rubber and his E13 dropper post was trash. But the Helix seems like a solid part. Gotta give credit where it is due, and this particular line of cassettes is a pretty good (and incredibly light) piece of kit.

Whistler Bike Park To Open This Weekend, Garbanzo Zone Slated For June 10
@ranchitup: Lots of folks prefer the fitz zone over all the other zones. I'll ride creekside and garbanzo but not more than once or twice a day and judging by the traffic whenever I've been there I'd say the vast majority of people feel the same. Also, keep in mind the gondola will still be serving the people going up to sightsee and ride the P2P.

Whistler Bike Park To Open This Weekend, Garbanzo Zone Slated For June 10
@kilo11: Really? I didn't ride Kickinghorse last summer but have many times in the past. I find it rather meh. Great tech trails up top but not a lot of variety. Just lots of steep rocky vertical. Fun but lacking variety. I actually really prefer Panorama now except that damn chair is not up to the task.

Whistler Bike Park To Open This Weekend, Garbanzo Zone Slated For June 10
@k2theg: Time will tell. But with social media a feel like there will be a feedback loop that forms. A few posts of "it's so busy" will drive away the crowds. Then a few "It's so empty" will bring them back and the cycle continues. For those of us that have to drive 1000+ km to get there I think I'll just stop short and stay longer at Silverstar and Sun Peaks.

I appreciate that the upgrade to the Fitz chair is necessary so people complaining about it need to come to terms with the fact that sometimes things have to be a little worse before they get better. However, because the Fitz chair is going to be closed for the summer, this'll be the first summer in over a decade I'll be skipping my trips to Whistler. If Vail decided to reduce lift prices to reflect the fact that people will get 1/3 as many laps in then I'd consider it. But full price tickets to get 3 runs in for a day is a little rich.

First Ride: Devinci's Chainsaw is a Canadian-Made Park Ripper
Yeah, why SX is a thing is beyond me. Thankfully my LBS here in Calgary has a Deore shifter/Derailleur combo that I'd just swap over for $127. It's a pretty cheap fix.

Fox Transfer SL Dropper Post Now Available In 125 & 150mm Lengths
@valrock: Why not? You know any 180mm 29er 36s out there? She's tiny but has absolutely no issues rocking a 5:15-5:20 lap on the world cup course at MSA last time she raced there. Not elite for sure, but I'd say a solid 80% of the guys at Whistler would have a hard time keeping up to her and when she enters local races there might be one or two other ladies in the same skill category.
