Video: Friday Fails #169
@plyawn: I once wrecked on my gravel bike passing a jogger. Hopped off the sidewalk connecter I was on and when I went to hop back on the pavement I did not get the 2 inches of air I needed to clear the elevation change back up. Barrel rolled over the sidewalk to the grass on the other side, unclipping in flight, and wound up laughing my ass off in the grass. The jogger was a bit freaked out as this unfolded in front of him.

Must Watch: Danny MacAskill & Kriss Kyle's Wildly Creative 'This & That'
This speaks volumes about my lack of ability when it comes to manualing and bunny hopping, but Kriss' hop off that wall after jumping the fence blew me away. A proper hop angled down at speed. Not to take away from the rest of the madness but that little bit was wicked.

Review: Specialized 2FO Roost vs Pearl Izumi X-Alp Launch Mid Flat Pedal Shoes
I would love an ankle height waterproof shoe with a sticky (5.10 sticky) flat sole. That would be amazing and really improve light winter to mid-cold fall and spring riding. Where I ride I am not worried about water coming in over the top of the shoe. I just want some decent toe coverage and wind blocking.

Review: Specialized 2FO Roost vs Pearl Izumi X-Alp Launch Mid Flat Pedal Shoes
I have some 45Nrth Ragnaroks for my gravel bike in the cold and wet. I like the Boa there as it is a quick adjustment. Anything to avoid taking off the gloves helps in the cold. That said, I ride my 5.10s down to just below freezing if its dry and winter lace up hiking boots when it is colder or wetter and I don't find myself retying all that often. Boa has been pretty bomb-proof, but seems very difficult to fix if it fails, both long term and trailside. I would give it a go on on flat shoes, but not really seek it out as a necessary feature.

10 Products I Loved in 2020: Daniel Sapp
I have had several pairs of Ranger shorts and they held up ok until they all blew up in the same way: in the crotch area after getting hung up on the saddle on a dismount. The included chamois is garbage, stitches come out of the pad almost immediately. They are fine for entry level use but that is about it.

10 Products I Loved In 2020: Sarah Moore
@bashhard: Fair point, some sport specific features and cuts should not take prices that high.

That is a ton of money but if it works, it works and that is what you need in the cold. I have a way cheaper (like half, from a legit running store and not close out) and less pocketed Brooks cold weather running shirt that is awesome for just below ) to about 5-7 Celsius. The materials look similar. After that it gets too hot. That said, running is no fun so what gets the most use is a Chromag Veldt wool jersey. I can run that thing from just above freezing to 15 C or a bit above as a solo layer and as a base under a normal long sleeve jersey down to -4ish C. Under that a heavier Smartwool base goes on. The Chromag and Smartwool were both $100+ but indispensable for cool to cold weather riding. I feel like I am still riding light.

9 Exercises to Improve your Hip Mobility & Stability
@wwpaddler03: I am starting to notice this connection between the hips and back as well. Just this year I started to have some lower back pain and now I am feeling a bit of hip issues as well. The back is during the ride and after, the hips just after. I have been half-assedly looking for some hip exercises. Perfect timing and thanks for putting this together!

Video: Eliott Lapotre is Impressive on Trail, Dirt Jump & DH Bikes in 'Dedication'
Man, riding has progressed so much these days but the cinematography and editing is blowing my mind even more. "Affordable" quality cameras, software, and the dedicated creative minds behind the equipment are pushing videos into places us old VHS-era people never could have dreamed about. Fantastic work!
