Vail Resorts to Acquire 17 Mountains in North America
@Lookinforit: the large companies that were gobbling up independently owned resorts failed (American Ski Company, for example). The resorts and the towns that support them benefitted from the failures, in my opinion. Just my two cents from talking with people like myself who have been through a cycle or two of the boom and bust in the industry.

Vail Resorts to Acquire 17 Mountains in North America
I live in Park City, Utah and when Vail came in they shut down the bike park at the Canyons, which had some legit trails. They now spin one lift with access to some lame XC trails and charge for that and call it good. Make no mistake, Vail coming to your town will change life as you know it. Your friends with small businesses that rent space in town will get pushed out; restaurants that serve good food for cheap will get pushed out; your bike park will be dumbed down or shut down; your parking will be $25 a day at the resort base. They don’t care about the towns they move into or the people they displace, it’s just the bottom line for them. On a high note, the ski industry has seen some catastrophic failures in the past when companies have grown to big. I hope that’s the case again.

First Ride: Shimano's Back in the Game With New XT and SLX 12-Speed Groups
@woofer2609: your Canadian math is funny. I love the idea of a rebate check though.

Devinci Wilson Carbon - Large

$1650 USD
2014 Devinci Wilson Carbon in frame size large. Cane Creek Double Barrel shock with titanium spring. The shock is working well but I can hear it's cavitated a bit, so it will need a rebuild at some point. This bike has been well maintained since day 1 and used for an annual DH trip and a couple of random lift days a year. Frame is in excellent condition with a few superficial scratches. 2014 RockShox Boxxer WC w/Keronite lowers. This has a $750 2017 Avalanche Racing cartridge in it with a medium spring conversion. Stanchions are mint. 2019 Shimano Saint derailleur and shifter are new, with zero days on them. 2014 Shimano Saint cranks, bottom bracket, cassette, chain. 2018 Sram Guide RSC brakes. These are like new. 2014 Canfield Brothers direct mount stem 2015 Enve DH carbon bars 2014 Devinci seatpost 2014 Tioga Spyder saddle 2014 Hadley hubs, front and rear with Stan's Flow rims. The front rim is ok, the rear rim will need to be replaced. Specialized Chunder tire in front, Maxxis Minion in rear with only one day on it. 2015 Shimano M647 pedals included free if you want them, otherwise I'll put them on my trail bike. I built this bike new from scratch with all my favorite parts, most of which would be spec on a world cup race bike. The fork is absolutely amazing with the Avy cartridge. I would prefer to sell this locally, which is in Norwich, Vermont. Buyer pays shipping, which will be between $150-$200. I'll take care of the PayPal fees. Would consider a trade for an adult DJ bike or a kid's 24" full suspension (for an 8 year old). Thanks for looking. -Graham

Review: Ibis Hi-Fi Adjustable Handlebar
@Boardlife69: Great explanation and I totally agree. I might add that when trialing the optimal push-up position there should be a bit of a “decline”, meaning that when relative to the horizontal the hands should be a bit higher than the toes. This will more closely replicate a riding position than a standard flat push-up throughout the range of motion.

8 Things We Learned at the La Bresse World Cup
Or the current Canfield Jedi (now since 2008?) which has been one of the best bikes out there for a decade with no marketing hype behind it.

Where's the New XTR? 8 Questions With Nick Murdick, Shimano MTB Product Manager
@aceface17: I have had terrible luck with Shimano derailleurs...seems like they love to rip off or bend on every root and rock they contact. SRAM has otherwise lasted very well for me over the past few years in that regard. The SRAM derailleurs always look haggard at the end of the season, but seem to work great no matter what. Surprisingly, reliability seems to be better for the higher end SRAM stuff - maybe the carbon is more resilient. Shimano brakes, on the other hand, have never let me down. Elixir, code, and guides have been utter failures and often time catastrophically, so I will stick with Shimano in this department. Cassettes don't seem to matter either way. Neither do chains. Just my experience with it.

RockShox's Electronic Wireless Dropper Post - Mont-Sainte-Anne World Cup
@pyrmud19: Maybe it's because it's super dry where I ride or something, but Reverbs have been straight trash. I've had two and they've both given me less than a year before crapping out. Bleeding and rebuild did nothing to fix them. I've had 2 different KS Levs that have been trouble free, so go figure. I have a Fox Transfer now too that's been mint as well.
