Police Called to Scott Sports Headquarters as CEO Dispute Continues
In the US it would read: EX-CEO of Scott Sports shot dead by officer who claims to have mistaken the "nude" branded bicycle shock for a gun during an argument with the company's new CEO about speccing a 150gram inline shock on a 170mm enduro bike.

Police Called to Scott Sports Headquarters as CEO Dispute Continues
I was visiting a friend in Switzerland and he said the cops recovered a bike of his that had been stolen. I told him that never happens in the US, but he also got a $200chf fine from the same police for "failing to properly secure" his bike, which I thought was funny.

E-Bike Battery Fires - Should You Be Worried?
The problem is not that ebike or ev fires are common, they probably aren't, it's that your ebike is probably stored and charging inside your garage or living area so that if there is a fire it's very dangerous and can do a lot of damage.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Use Your Climb Switch?
For me it depends on how it works. I use the climb switch all the time on my Super Deluxe Coil because it firms up the shock nicely and makes the bike sportier while still responding to impacts. The climb switch on my Super Deluxe Air is a near total “lock out”, and I don’t use it for anything other than pavement.

Henry's Waffle House: All-Mountain Bikes Are Back, and They're More Pointless Than Ever
I have to agree. I had a 150mm bike for a while and I found it wasn't any lighter and didn't climb any better than a full enduro bike, but the enduro bike was noticeably more stable and forgiving on high speed descents. It used to be that an all-mountain bike would have lower handlebars, and hence have a better climbing position, but now things like steeper seat angle and longer chainstays have eliminated that advantage and enduro bikes climb just as well. I think there is a terrain type where All Mountain excels though, and that's terrain that's relatively rough, but rolling without big climbs and descents. This is where an enduro bike can feel like "too much" because you don't have the extended downhills to get up to speed, but you also want suspension to soak up the bumps.

Race Report: New Course Records for Solo Women by Momber & Duo Men's by Morton/Lideen - 24 Hours In The Old Pueblo
I don't think I've seen any duos attempt 12 hour shifts. Are they the first competitive duo to try that?
