Video: Loic Bruni Decimates Downhill Runs in Spain
Doesn't look real actually. Looks like an optical illusion. Crazy form.

Ask Pinkbike: Knee Pad Suggestions, Tires for the Southwest & Do I Want a Singlespeed?
7iDP Covert is a great option for heavy sweaters. The back is extremely well ventilated and doesn't impede my pedal stroke on longer pedals. The ability to choose from 3 levels of protection is great and the light-weight hardshell punches above its weight. Solid buy.

Video: Race Face Launches New Next SL Wheelset
100% – went through the Santa Cruz warranty process and I can say it was incredibly easy. In fact Willie went above and beyond in warrantying my Nomad 3 frame for a Nomad 4 frame. For my next set of wheels, across all my bikes, I'll be switching from Enve (5yr warranty) to SC Reserve solely based upon their customer service. Sure you pay more, but the assurance for original owners is well worth it in my opinion. If you're pushing carbon frames and wheels there is no reason you shouldn't have this for original owners.

Local Flavors: The Complete Guide to Riding in Duluth, Minnesota
@SeaLegs26: I think that's the plan for the trail Rock Solid is building off of Britton Peak. From what I hear it's suppose to eventually connect to Lutsen as a first phase and then beyond.

There are numerous creeks that run downhill and ice over in the winter that create a literal ice DH course. It's pretty intense.

@Jordanh604: It's buffed out flow trail built back when people/IMBA were figuring out exactly what that meant. The Yawkey unit offers some trials-like tech riding. It tops out at about a soft intermediate trail system. Though the jumpline they just installed at the Rally Center has some decent hucks to it. I take my XC bike there for hot laps. What Cuyuna does have going for it are the crystal clear turquoise mining lakes you can literally ride your bike into for a post-rip swim and the trailside yurts. It has some amenities to it for sure, but it doesn't offer too much in varied terrain or skill building. Not to discredit whats there, it's fun in it's own right, but it's definitely no Duluth.

@namdoogttam: let me beliiiieeeeeeeeeeeve man, just let me belieeeeeeeeve it'll happen one day! haha. Suppose they've done their due diligence, but I regularly drive to Copper Harbor which is 6.5 hours away, and drive to Duluth 1 or 2 weekends May thru Oct and it ain't no thing for me to give it 2 more hours for quality terrain.

@namdoogttam: I saw that, if it's part of the system that is being built off of the Britton Peak trail? I was talking to the staff at Lutsen – since that trail is supposed to connect eventually – and they said they aren't interested in lift-service biking, which blew me way. Maybe they are staying mum? Either way, the singletrack they built for the Lutsen 99er is decent enough, so I don't see why they'd not be interested in turning the lifts on? Or at least putting some gravity oriented trails, I have no issue earning my turns.
