Video: Kris Kyle Carves New Lines in Glasgow
If you'll allow me to be a nit-picking jackass for a second, can we talk about the thumbnail caption for this video for a second? Giving Kris Kyle the title "BMX bruiser" seems to me to be basically the worst possible nickname for this man. He has one of the most precise and finesse-filled riding styles in BMX today and we're trying to label him a "bruiser" to score some cheap alliteration points? OK, if this had been a Sean Burns or a Colt Fake video I could accept the title "bruiser", but for Kris Kyle this seems just wildly out of place. Alright, rant over.

Such a cool concept for a video.

Bike Checks & Tech From the Pits - EWS La Thuile 2018
So impressed that TLap can get top 10 EWS results with Guides attached to his bike. Having wildly inconsistent brakes must work for him haha!

Course Release: Canadian Enduro Series - Camp Fortune, QC
I agree. I lived in Ottawa last summer and couldn't believe how rough it was compared to the North Shore. Awesome trails out there!

Anyone know whats up with Isak Leivisson riding a Canyon? I thought he was riding for Pole these days? Either way, beautiful riding style and he seems to be on some serious pace the last few races!

Bike Check: Yoann Barelli's Commencal Meta 29
I can confirm these issues. I also needed to warranty my rocker link and yoke link because the excessive flex caused metal on metal grinding and wore away too much material. I also had a pretty good gauge starting to form on my downtube where the pivots exited, but I put a layer of velcro tape there before it got too bad.

Bike Check: Steve Peat's Santa Cruz Hightower LT - Trans Madeira 2018
The slack seat tube angle on the HTLT is its major downfall. Even though I have very short legs (28inch inseam, 5'9"), and therefore should feel less of an impact than a long legged rider, I felt the climbing position was really uncomfortable and inefficient. It feels as if you are hanging way off the back and pushing forwards on the pedals instead of down. Comparing the HTLT to a bike like the Transition Sentinel (my current bike), which is probably ~4lbs heavier, I still find the Sentinel to be a much better climber, as it allowed me to pedal from a much more bio mechanically advantageous position, with my weight centered over the BB and my pedal stroke pushing down instead of forwards. This is especially advantageous on steeper climbs.
