Video: Finals Highlights from Red Bull Rampage 2021
I can’t wait to see jaxson ride again. So fresh. Everyone slayed it but he’s got something different going on. Everything these guys do is impossible but his impossible had me off the couch and shouting.

Cane Creek Announces Helm Fender
Useless except for keeping dirt, rocks, and mud out of your face. Nearly everyone in my area runs a similar-sized front fender all year.

Round Up: Women's MTB Wednesdays - Issue 3
@pen9-wy: That's a good topic to bring up. I'll add that the two aren't mutually exclusive.

Nukeproof Announces Giga 297 and Mega 297 Frames
Giga is definitely single pivot. The shock is driven by linkage but the axle path is single pivot. Mega is a 4-bar because there are four movable frame segments connecting the rear axle to the front triangle. All of those bars play a part in axle path while the extra shock lingages of the giga don't.

Practice Photo Epic: Snowshoe World Cup DH Race 1 2021
In general yes. But the mountain is littered with millions of untouched rocks. And newts and salamanders have more to fear from the ski slopes, roads, parking lots, and bike trails. If you want to worry about their habitats, pick the right battle.

Video Round Up: Track Walk at the Snowshoe World Cup DH 2021
A whale tail would be fine in terms of style. There are plenty of world cup tracks with wood features, including massive boardwalks, wall rides and drops. I think the problem was it wasn't sized perfectly. Sizing is critical with a whale tail since overshooting makes you slam into the uphill exit/jump instead of landing on the downhill entrance/lander. We recently removed a whale tail from a local park for the exact same reason and replaced it with a steel ramp to dirt lander. It is safer now because you can be going a little too slow or too fast and still not die.

Bike Check: Insanityofgravity's Titanium, Ultra High Pivot Freeride Bike
I want to see a return of high-pivot bikes with floating brake mounts. High pivots result in seriously poor suspension performance when braking. My old 7" bullit was great until you used the brakes. Under braking, it basically became a hardtail due to aggressive brake squat. I added a floating brake mount and the suspension became active under braking. The difference is staggering and well worth the minimal weight and additional pivots.
