Video: Unofficial 2018 La Bresse World Cup Track Preview
That bridge in the thumbnail looks hella sketch. Didn’t Peaty cut himself all up on a bridge like that in Val de Sole? I hope they make it safe to race.

RockShox Boxxer World Cup - First Ride
I logged in just to upvote. Side note — is it possible to create some kind of reducer shim to go from 20x110 to 15x110 to allow wheel swapping?

Fumic's Scalpel, Last's Lynx and RockShox's New Lockout Actuator - Stellenbosch World Cup XCO
While I can appreciate the growing loss of handlebar real estate, grip-shifts sucked in the ‘90s and they still suck today. Reason being, the different densities of materials between your grips and the shifter, as well as the thick shifter profile and thin material that it does have, makes for an uncomfortably rigid hand surface. I acknowledge that manufacturers will need a less-expensive alternative to products, but I’m surprised with electronic shifting, they aren’t going the same way here as well. Seems to me systems integration could benefit them in the long-run in terms of weight savings (battery) and simplicity (one control unit). Just me 2c.

The Story Behind The Air Rec Center Indoor Bike Park - Video
@WAKIdesigns: Money is probably the simplest part. I can think of three organizations right now that partner real estate developers with investors. If you don’t have access to these groups, you can go at it the old fashioned way and hit the streets. It’s a pretty simple pitch. Once you have your numbers, you just present that to people to see if they want a secure, predictable investment that offers a better ROI than their current portfolio. Hell, I sat next to a guy on a plane who was willing to take a 9% ROI on a long-play real estate option in a market that had an annual passive appreciation of 20%. Sometimes it’s just a matter of talking to people.

@cmcrawfo: capital is surprisingly easy to come by when you’re talking real-estate. He’s added a lot of value to the property by building the facility (active appreciation) which is what investors are looking for, and there’s also he market value increase (passive appreciation). Combine both, and the investors have a surprisingly easy to predict ROI. Now, how he’s structured his dividends would be more difficult to predict given the low profit and high initial investment cost of a bike facility. He might have just structured it as ‘payable on sale of the property’ and pitched it to his investors as an opportunity to park their money in a safe investment (real estate).
