The Top 5 Most Stylish Mountain Bikers of All Time (According to Pinkbike)
@cebolla: Gracia is not so far away in this ranking, but I think some voters are mixing skills (tricks) vs style.

Am I the only one flabbergasted by the main picture of the "Best of Red Bull Rampage: 2004" retrospective video, featuring Gracia in the 2008 "commen├žal superteam" color scheme?

Video: Magura Concept Integrates Brake Hoses Into Handlebars for Cable-Free Cockpit
@donpinpon29: it exists in real and is given with some of their models. For instance my Cura have it, though sadly only at one side (caliper). It is also purchasable separately (found it on bike24 for instance) so you can retro fit-it. Don't know why they're not pushing this more though

Hope Questions Lack of Parity in Shimano Micro Spline Licensing
@cwatt: They succeed in creating hype, and they simplified the user experience, yes. They reshaped a market centralized on specs, geeky, to a market centralized on look, perceived value or whatever yes. Their design language was different, elegant, for sure. They paid attention to details, check. But they were not the best at fit or finish in the first steps. Early iterations of the iPhone were not so ahead in terms of fit or finish.

Hope Questions Lack of Parity in Shimano Micro Spline Licensing
@Euskafreez: From the facts related by the article alone we can't guess what has been the previous communication process in between Hope and Shimano. Main citations "[...]We have been talking with Shimano ever since the new standard was announced[...]" vs "[...]but they declined to offer any more comment[...]" So Hope is probably pissed off, yes. They trust that bringing the current issue public will help, maybe. Hoping to leverage riders reaction, for sure. Industry negociations 2.0 Now what has really happened, what has been said, what has been tried, etc all those types of question remain pure speculation.

Hope Questions Lack of Parity in Shimano Micro Spline Licensing
@chrod: It was more a DAT vs MiniDisc battle (a battle won by Sony, but it kinda seem that, left playing alone, they were infact unable to convert the try). Another great example for your analogy would be HD-DVD vs Blu-Ray (and in that case, Sony won).

Video: Are 29/27.5" Mullet Bikes Faster Than 29ers?
2 things: - you can't make any relevant conclusion on any topic with 6 events. That's not how works statistics, or just sciences. - When is scheduled a proper REAL test including zombie 26" ?...

Update: Anne-Caroline Chausson Rides Again After Second Cancer Battle
Had the opportunity to ride with her last year, during the 5th edition of "Faster Than You", such a nice person. I'm sure the GOAT will win this other round !

Julien Absalon Retires From World Cup XC
@BenPea: Though "poo", as fun as it gets, isn't the best translation. "Shit" is the adequate word. In Absalon's quote, as in typical french for this expression/meaning you would use "shit" (chier) not the poo (caca) word, that posess a childish aroma (as it is mostly reserved to child/parents conversations). By using "poo" you add a comic effect by mixing language registers (and this not the intent of Absalon's) or at least surprise your conversation partner. Because this french expression is just completely plain vulgar. So: - "Smile man, you won!" - "Yeah, but I did shit bricks." // "Yeah, but it was a bitch" // "Yeah, but it was a motherfucker of a run" // or whatever already existing graphical expression :)
