Video: Friday Fails #170
It's so nice to see so many people going to the same riding school. Remember when going off drops or jumps, lock both your arms and legs, do not shift your body weight, success.

@plyawn: While this is true you would think that if you didn't know anything about jumping you would at the very least pull up on the bars. A few cases of people seemingly riding off things with their upper body weighting the bars.

Review: The New Reserve 28 XC Wheels Don't Mess Around
"Or maybe it's all in my head, but hey confirmation bias gains are still gains!" - lmao I can't even disagree with that.

First Ride: 2022 Specialized Kenevo SL - The Electric Enduro
@hitarpotar: Well from experience on my 2014 Giant Trance going from a 140-150mm fork felt great, but going from 150-160 completely ruined the bike (I only did this in anticipation of moving the fork over to a new frame a week later). With the 160 it felt great in a straight line going over rough stuff but there was a complete and total lack of front end grip when cornering. I am of the belief that you shouldn't be messing with things like BB drop and swingarm angle unless you know what you're doing. There are also plenty of people who went to 160mm forks on the same model Trance as me who loved it. This likely comes down to a difference in skill level, riding style, or possibly simply awareness of what the bike is doing under them. I am by no means a pro rider but I do seem to be fairly sensitive to differences in bike setup.

Video: Brage Vestavik Reflects on His Jaw-Dropping X Games Segment
I feel like he didn't get enough credit from the judges for doing a crank flip onto a round log to 360 out. The whole video is freaking wild.

@hitarpotar: be careful what you read on the internet. Screwing with geometry causes all sorts of issues with cornering performance. It might be great in a straight line but usually screws up the grip in high speed and flat corners

@Bushmaster123: Did you intentionally miss the "in the mountains" part of that statement? Random youtube clip but this looks like less fun than bombing down a MTB trail. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p_93A1idajM I still want one though lol

Pirelli's New $37 SmarTubes Are Claimed to be 70% Lighter Than Butyl Inner Tubes
Honestly pedaling up a mountain is such a suffer fest for me that anything I can do to reduce the weight of the gear I'm carrying is worth it, especially if it's 40 bucks and hopefully a 1 time purchase. Same reason I pay a little more for XT cassettes. My bike is heavy enough as is.
