2018 Racing Rumors - What's True and What Isn't
I often wonder about riders and the brands they support. Danny is still an excellent rider after his infamous World’s race, but Giant dropped him. Sam Hill is, as the article says, Sam HIll. But Specialized didn’t think so. It seems even the best riders end-up on small, alternative brands. It seems feasible a small brand would want a big name, but it also seems more likely the larger brands would want to hog that spotlight and have the margins to do it. In the end, I would just like to see these great riders end up with teams that have the resources to help them succeed.

'Not Guilty' Plea in Spectator Death Case
It's likely the defence is going to argue that the spectator observed other cyclists pass by where she was standing and that she was a reasonable and competent person, therefore assuming the risks. That said, I think this case does present a very valid safety concern. I can't say I've ever seen any signage cautioning spectators of the potential dangers associated with an event like this. Riders acknowledge the risks vis a vis their waver. The counter-argument is the Cedric Gracie incident when he broke his femur (?) after he left the track and crashed on a stump that wasn't padded. There was a big push and shove on safety then as to where the line should be drawn between safety and protection and assumed risks of the sport/event. I'm genuinely sorry this person lost their life, but if improving safety for people in the future is the outcome, it'll only serve to further legitimize this sport.

Watch Bearclaw Training for Rampage on his Snow MX Bike
To whomever filmed this, kudos to you. The cinematography reminds me what it was like watching a Warren Miller ski movie when I was young and dreaming about what it would be like to ski in the mountains. Thank you.

Whistler Bike Park: Trail Engaged, Episode Two - Video
I expect a large company Iike Whistler to silently think they know better than their customers; I didn't expect them to create a video series telling that to our faces. Not sure how I feel about this.

2018 Devinci Spartan - First Look
The new frame design is an improvement over the old, no question. A few thoughts are: 1 - one advantage of a Trunion mount is the ability to run a shorter eye-to-eye. However, a Trunion-mount on a rocker-link means the shock mass actually rises in the chassis. There is plenty of room beneath the lower eye to move the shock weight down in the bike, albeit some nifty engineering would be necessary. Perhaps a consideration on the next version. 2 - I know people have already suggested a short CS on XL frames is a bad thing, and I don't disagree. Rather, I'd like to see companies start offering rear-end geometry that mimics the front-end; short CS on Small frames, long CS on Large/XL frames. A 6'3" rider is going to experience a 430mm CS on an XL frame a LOT differently than a 5'7" rider on a small. 3 - It's nice to see the 165mm travel. Even though I'm not an Enduro racer, I think it's an appropriate amount given the bike's intended purpose, especially in a sea of bikes that range from 140-170mm.
