Summer is Overrated - Opinion
@WAKIdesigns: I remember a time when the US national discussion about switching was a bit more serious and hearing how much it would cost just to convert our road sides. Forget the exact number, but I think our road signs number in the 100's of millions. Maybe why Britain still uses miles. There's really no reason to switch except the math gets easier. There's also no reason not to just start slapping the km on every new road sign alongside the miles so that in 30 years when we have the discussion again we'll already be halfway there and most Americans will have a good idea what a kilometer is.

@thenotoriousmic: oh...you mean "those measurements" that you've never even bothered to learn yourself?

Summer is Overrated - Opinion
yeah...says the people who gave us the Imperial units with which to measure. Sorry, but you have lost our trust. Never mind that "autumn" comes from Latin via the French, and "fall" was actually introduced by Brits.

POC Resistance Strong DH Pant - Review
not just riding "trousers." Most technical clothing suffers the same short+skinny/tall+fat sizing blunder. Few manufacturers offer "longs." I only just recently learned that a lot of regular clothing companies actually do make the 30 or 31W x34L size I need; most stores just don't put them on the shelves. Started shopping online and for the first time in my life I actually have jeans that fit...it's a revelation!

HydraPak, Yakima, Küat - Interbike 2016
ah...yeah, they're pricey and I don't want one, but I think they make loads of sense and are actually economical in the right scenario.

HydraPak, Yakima, Küat - Interbike 2016
Rack rating is likely for "dynamic load," while driving and stomping the brakes and such, and could probably hold twice that just fine as long as the vehicle isn't moving while the weight is up there. In the RTT world, most would say you'd be fine with a smaller tent and two average size adults, but if you get a big tent, big adults, extra people, use an extra load bar or two. Side note: I think Europe and US have different specs for rating racks, as when you look on a European website the rating is usually 100kg, then on the US website the exact same product is rated for 175 lbs (those might not be correct #'s as it's been a while, but you get the idea). Another side note: many times has the phrase been uttered "You'd have to be a twat to spend £1000+ on a 1 man pedal bike." I don't have an RTT and I don't want one, but...just sayin'.

T-Minus 1 Week Till The Hidden Gem Race
bummer...I've been planning on doing this for the last 11 months, but in the last two weeks I've had two unavoidable conflicts arise. Looks great folks, good work! Now I plan for next year....

adidas Terrex - Eurobike 2016
@verskis: Hey! Thanks for the lead! Norrøna makes some great looking gear, if a little pricey. Never heard of them before but will definitely be checking with them for any performance clothing needs, bike or otherwise. I decided I like the slightly more toned-down look of the Fjørå Lightweight so I picked up a pair, but if I like them more than they cost I might try a pair of Flex1 next season for the burlier material. No trail ride yet but they appear to be great shorts. Construction quality is par with the absolute best, textile seems durable, nice fit and styling. I still wouldn't consider these ideal as they are probably 4-6 inches (11-13 cm) longer than other trail shorts I've tried, so maybe 2 or 3 inches too long, but in my opinion too long is far better than too short. Thanks again!

Florian Nicolai's Rocky Mountain Slayer - EWS Round 7: Valberg, France
@nvranka: @nvranka: I'm always amazed how often people talk about ideal suspension setup and tire pressure like they are some fixed value. Even suspension makers pretend like the way they tune a fork is ideal for every rider. In reality they are so dependent on rider weight, speed, terrain, and trail surface. I got my fork set up so smooth and supportive on steep and rough ONLY on the days when I'm feeling fast and riding hard. On days when I'm just not feeling it, or I'm just cruising, taking it easy, it is rather harsh. Same for tire pressure...discussion is useless without tire volume (and rim width); compound, casing and tread pattern also change things. Takes an absolutely obsessive geek (or a professional) to figure out the best combination of all these variables for a given rider+trail+bike...but it's way easier to just pump them up to 23f/25r every time (which is what I do).

NEW -- Dakine 8-Track Bike Shorts -- Size 32" Black

$50 USD
I ordered 2 pairs of these shorts to try them on and the other waist size fit me best so I have an extra in size 32" waist, all Black with Grey "Dakine" graphic in two places. NEW with TAGS. I'll try to get actual pictures up but in the meantime just use the internets. Just a couple points of interest: this is a Downhill short. The fit is generally loose and long (16" inseam) and a rear stretch panel adds mobility. The material is really burly and not stretchy. Think Carhartt's brown duck workwear, but this is 100% polyester (and black) so should dry faster. These probably aren't suited for lots of pedaling but should hold up well to park laps, shuttle runs, digging, jumping, crashing, etc. Fit is true to size; this 32" waist pair should fit anyone with maybe a 32.5-33 inch waist max, and has internal Velcro adjusters and belt loops to snug them up if necessary. Send inquiries via Pinkbike messaging. Asking price includes shipping to US addresses. Buyer outside the United States pays actual shipping to non-US address. Thanks.
