Carbon Fiber Valve Stems, An Improved Dropper, and 6D's Updated Helmets - Interbike 2017
@XCAussie: wheel builders have also been adding heavier spokes on the opposite side to compensate. A little neater than adding weights

Nukeproof Mega 275 Carbon - First Ride
The green & yellow looks like an Aussie world champs custom. Very awesome.

Totally, I don't know what he's paid but he deserves a heap more.

Graham Agassiz Pulls Out of Red Bull Rampage
Id like to see rampage run by the riders on their own terms. A little more like fest. By the riders, for the riders. More time to build, test their lines and then throw down under ideal conditions. Two runs each, fully filmed and judged by the riders. A solid fee paid to each of the riders for being selected with prize money for winning and placing after that. Could be a little idealistic but watching guys throw down in less than ideal conditions given what they're already putting on the line is unfair on them I think. It might not be possible as a live event but fest and ews are not covered live and they don't seem to suffer because of it. It could be covered as a week long event. There's potentially holes to be worked out in the above but watching guys breaking themselves to the point of paraplegia on runs that sketchier than needed is getting hard to watch

Pinion Gearbox to Enter US and Canada
@jflb: by in between i mean right at that slight dead spot in between down strokes. Pedalling consistently so not pausing whatsoever to shift. Hope that helps

Not my experience. I can sneak a shift in between pedal strokes 90% of the time without backing off even going uphill. Can also dump multiple gears and get right on the gas without that awful grinding. So much quicker, way more precise. If you just had 1 test rise then I'd agree your experience is probably valid, but after about 3-5 rides you work out how to finesse the system and you can shift lightning fast and like butter in between pedal strokes

Pinion Gearbox to Enter US and Canada
@acali: I totally agree. It works great for 1 or 2 rides then cops a hit and is just off. Was just too bloody hard to keep it running perfect every ride.

@WaterBear: I am running a Zerode Taniwha. Due to the cost of the frame and drivetrain I'm running it as a 26er still :) they're still good and my fox 36 is just awesome so hard to justify replacing it for bigger wheels at this stage. Phase 2 will be new wheelset and fork.

@fartymarty: I can shift between pedal strokes 90% of the time without backing off at all. Shifting is lightning quick and super precise. No crunching like on with a cog/derailleur shift. Gripshift is fine but I'll probably try a trigger when it gets developed. I think the gripshift will be quicker though for multiple gear changes though.
