Ken Block's Glow in the Dark Specialized S-Works Stumpjumper
I really find it interesting how people such as Ken Block (a drifter) has established a brand and expanded into a social influincer, all the while feeling it’s entirely fake and disingenuous. I think if I was younger and more impressionable I might take it for face value, but now that I’m old and cynical and see videos like those MKBHD recently posted exposing celebrities including Oprah promoting Andriod tablets from an iPad that it honestly just makes me sad there’s so much money to be made flogging products. I guess that’s what you get in this ‘famous for being famous’ era we find ourselves in.

Spotted on Social: 2 Wild Saves From Valparaiso
@jake28: the difference between Rampage and urban downhill events is that Rampage is a ride-built line to their own abilities.

YT Officially Launches the Tues 29
I wish manufacturers would post launch videos talking about the development of the bike, the decisions made in determining geometry, etc. That’s what sells bikes, not a 2minute video of a professional riding the product. They could be on a 26” for all I care, if I don’t develop an emotional connection to the product, I’m not interested.

Performance to Close All Remaining Stores, Over 95 ASE Employees Laid Off
I dunno about this. I liked paying 10-40% markup to someone else becuase I got to say things like “support my community” on the internet.

The Syndicate's Prototype DH Bars (& Something New from Josh Bryceland) - Burgtec House Show 2019
I mean no disrespect, but does the market really need another 9x5 bar? What I want is a flat bar — think 9deg back x 2deg up.

Lawsuit Claims Search & Rescue Delays Contributed to Mountain Biker's Death
I recently purchased a Garmin InReach Mini for situations exactly like this. No ‘searching’ required for rescue. Even if you don’t want to get a monthly subscription (for two-way messaging and GPS tracking) the SOS function will always work. At $450 CDN is a worthwhile investment for anyone riding alone.
