Review: NX Eagle - SRAM's New Affordable 12-Speed Drivetrain
Check out how perverted I am: I'm super excited to buy one of these cassettes, strip out 6 of the cogs and run it as a 2x6. Actually you could make 2 six-speed cassettes for 100 bucks, run them with a 28-38 front and have a massive gear range, low chain stress and the most golden chain line on your one-inch wide cassette. This is like a present to weirdos like me who still like front derailleurs!

Video: Chris Akrigg "Freetrials" in Barcelona
I hope Chris Akrigg gets credit for the amount of furious pedaling he does. This guy has an amazing amount of explosive power, sprinting back and forth between the rocks etc., not to mention the ridiculous core strength these moves require. He may not be a cross country racer but I doubt he's taking four hour tea breaks between takes when he's making these films.

Flow Trail Overload? Or Never Enough Flow? - Pinkbike Poll
I think they're both really good. But raising the bar on danger is always going to cost us as mountain bikers, especially when what raises that bar is a trail feature deliberately put in to make it more difficult. Municipalities and land managers have a really hard time getting behind having something they're responsible for that essentially becomes a booby trap for most users. We can make it a point of pride to only have the most risky stuff under our wheels, but that's going to make us very unpopular. And we'll lose. I grew up riding on motorcycle and atv trails that turned into flow trails in snowmobile season. And while none of those trails were designed to have scary parts (they weren't designed at all), because they formed naturally with no consideration for erosion or sustainability, both uphill and downhill sections rapidly became more challenging as they washed out, bombed out, rutted out, etc., and those parts got really fun really quick! And actually that's what I miss most about those really 'old school' trails. Now we can't start advocating for making our trails more erosion prone again, but there's a lesson there: let the techy parts develop on their own and use your imagination. You may end up having to find your own tricky ways to ride a regular human being's trail. And there's some reward in that, even if it doesn't look like a terrifying amusement park in the woods.

Don't turn your back on that flightless parrot, I hear they'll eat the tires right off your bike.

I like that he's got the seat all the way up. I used to think only John Tomac could do ginormous jumps with the seat sky high like that, but apparently that's not correct. .
