Carbon Conundrum - Pole Bicycles Ditch Their Plastic Project
@polebicycles: i wonder often about all these issues you bring up... especially with package design... its especially wasteful... and so what if you can reuse it... its still more crap you dont need having to be made... why cant ppl just accept a Huck Norris folded up and tied with a sustainable piece of twine?... why cant you merchandise it in a hook hanging down all long and shit?... people wont accept that crap!... it kills me how much ppl have to be wooed and impressed with this stuff... how much your partners demand modern marketing techniques and merchandising methods... and how international shipping and distribution requires so much wasteful packing and systems... does your brain hurt to think it through like mine?...

Carbon Conundrum - Pole Bicycles Ditch Their Plastic Project
Holy Fuck has this gone down the rabbit hole... pretty much everything humans do is ruining the earth and bikes arent different... carbon bike, alu bike, steel bike... makes no difference... if you want your adrenaline rush with zero impact then take up barefoot naked parkour... not kidding... go live like pygmies... modern humans intellectual debate over environmental degradation is like a phillip spector wall of cognitive dissonance...

August 2017 - Good Month or Bad Month?
true- ppl dont realize that vegas is the #1 place for a tradeshow... and that its the bike BUSINESS and not the bike HEALTHY QUINOA BRO-OUT... moving the show from vegas is a sign that the show is not doing well.. because when it was relevant and important to business there was no way you were getting it out of vegas... they tried once and there was a mutiny... but now that all those businesses pulled away, they are free to leave vegas... but with a shell of the show they used to run...

August 2017 - Good Month or Bad Month?
@bbeak: it's not normal for a national federation to have such a contract for professional riders. Traditionally this is never done and the riders personal contracts are taking precedence over the national team contract. Especially since these contracts with national teams don't pay the riders, unless there is some performance bonus. Otherwise you would never field a team at world champ and Olympic events. There are not really two egos. There is only that her federation is breaking tradition for no real reason and they are losing out on worlds medals which may in some way effect their nation ranking and future Olympic and worlds selection spots. They are 100% out of line.

12-Speed XTR, Devinci’s Return to DH, and a Santa Cruz eMTB? - Rumors from Eurobike 2017
@treekilla: really? shimano is pretty much the leader (with countless innovations) and they are like 3 times the size of the next competitor... everyone else is trying to dodge all their patents to come up with something, and then hope they can carve out a niche in the 3-5 years they have before shimano decides your market is worth moving into... then they do something at least as good as you, if not better, and cheaper with better delivery...

3 years behind and 1.5 billion dollars ahead... when the sales are hype, you dont need marketing hype... any serious mtb brand that expects to stay relevant globally will have to have an e-bike...

California Enduro Series 2017 Round 6 / Golden Tour Round 2: Northstar Enduro
@siderealwall2: i agree and am aware that some of the times in the categories are not making sense... its tough in that we dont have any upgrade system in place, or any guidelines for choosing categories... i would prefer to get ahead of it before we end up in a situation where the results have no integrity and are meaningless... i have proposed taking some steps to mitigate the problems and we will take it up at the next board meeting... so i hear you for sure... and thanks for coming out to the races!

What's Up at 9point8 - Crankworx Whistler 2017
@hardcore-hardtail: yeah- when ppl used to flat because stuff stuck in your tire if you aligned the logo in the tire with the valve stem you could know where to check the tire for a thorn, or piece of metal or whatever... now i am pretty sure thats only useful on road bikes since MTBs dotn get that kind of flat much anymore...
