Blasting Austro-Hungarian Trail Gaps in 'Twisted Seasons'
There are places in the world where you really don't run into a lot of rocks in the soil. It's just what the ground is like.

Pole Bicycles Announces New CNC-Machined 'Machine' - Press Release
So I'm going to assume there have been some new technologies that have emerged to make CNC machined parts a bit more failure resistant than they used to be in order to make a whole frame out of it. Are they extruding the pieces before machining or something? I'm just remembering from 20 years ago masses of awesome components milled from billet that looked really great but left all the inherent weak spots in an aluminum block present in the finished product. So you had all these cool cranks, stems, seatposts etc., that snapped the first chance it got. Maybe the billet forming process is better now. I'm no metallurgist but perhaps there are some on the internet that could shed some light on this?

Pole Bicycles Announces New CNC-Machined 'Machine' - Press Release
Haha I think you're referring to Kooka cranks. CNC manufactured Kooka cranks. Broken Kooka cranks. All that other CNC stuff that looked awesome but snapped like twigs?

Do You Know How to Build a Wheel? - Pinkbike Poll
In 25 years of BikeMechanicking, I probably built over 3000 wheels. I still love it, and nowadays I just build them for fun. And three days ago, not having any spoke prep around, I dug into my painting kit and built a wheel with linseed oil, for the first time ever. The jar had been sealed for 12 years, since I did my last oil painting, and unscrewing the lid really made me see why the old timers used it on spoke threads.

DH Legends Take to the Course on Day 1 of the 2017 Kamikaze Bike Games
When they rebooted the Kamikaze wasn't there an event where they raced bikes from the old days as well? Not seeing any of the old ones here - was it deemed just too suicidally dangerous to race fully rigid bikes with 20" wide bars in the modern age? Or did that event end up breaking all the vintage bikes to bits?
