Video: Revelling in the Dark Forest of West Virginia
Nationals were held there this week. Some of this edit was on an enduro stage. Pure roots! So greazy when wet...

Video: What An Injured Rider's Dreams Are Made Of
I’m in week 4 of a concussion, home from work laying on the couch wishing the headaches and dizziness away. And that’s without blacking out or spending time in a hospital. Thoughts are with you my man. Good thing you’re young... bet you’re back to riding before my middle aged ass

Is The Quintessenz The Most Adaptable Long-Travel Bike? - Eurobike 2018
@ulli23: Thanks for the reply. Not sure if you're disagreeing with my comments on brake/suspension interaction. It's definitely something I'd like to see more of in bike design. Bring back floating brake mounts!

Inside The Tape: Andorra DH World Cup 2018
The next generation of DH riders is going to be different because of these videos. I always knew there were line choices and some of the general principles, but hearing it dissected has given me more concepts to work with. Thoughts that would never have come to mind are becoming known to the general public. Sure, we can't apply the concepts perfectly but they're now part of the equation in our brains. I can only imagine what that would have done to my riding I had been exposure earlier in life.

Is The Quintessenz The Most Adaptable Long-Travel Bike? - Eurobike 2018
Pedal/suspension interaction is important. But for a long travel bike i'm more interested in brake/suspension interaction. Years ago I had a 7" high-pivot single-pivot bike that was pretty much a hardtail when the rear brake was used. I ended up installing an after market floating rear brake mount. It was kinda cool, involving removal of the hub end cap an replacing it with a brake mount that pivoted around the rear axle. (Brake Therapy) It completely transformed that bike, making the suspension actually work while braking. Similarly, hitting a large bump wouldn't cause the braking force to be affected.

Renthal Launches New Fatbar Carbon
@justanotherusername: More specifically, 35mm can be stiffer and stronger without increasing weight. I think 35mm makes more sense when viewed next to all the other tube diameters used on a bike. Granted, what matters most is... for a given material, what diameter provides the desired strength/weight/stiffness/durability tradeoff.

Interview: Chris Ball, Director of the EWS - 'Why Would We Mess With A Good Thing?'
Despite what is written in the article, I fully expect the UCI to increasingly influence the EWS, no matter what this initial agreement says. They've got massive leverage in the industry and once EWS is in bed with the UCI, the bigger fish is going to win.

Interview: Chris Ball, Director of the EWS - 'Why Would We Mess With A Good Thing?'
Yeah, I didn't read anything in the interview that sounded like a benefit to EWS. I'm willing to be convinced but as of yet nothing concrete sounds like a benefit. Overall, I don't think the UCI has a positive influence on mountain bikers. With that said, much respect to Chris Ball despite disagreeing with this decision.

Nah... i'm sure they went out and spent all spring blowing out all the trails with hand tools before anyone had the chance to blow them out with riding.
