Meet the 12 Freeriders of Red Bull Formation 2022
@Velocipedestrian: I live in Washington State, and we definitely like to play outside here. You all must be taking that to a whole different level. Nice going.

Review: Yakima's $849 StageTwo Hitch Rack
Between the bad English and the fact the Astrovan probably pushes out more COs than a Sprinter, that is a bit cute...

Review: Yakima's $849 StageTwo Hitch Rack
Same with several Yakima racks - all their rooftop stuff has always been really solid, so I was surprised just how shitty the Holdup turned out being. Crappy plastic, ratchets failing, awkward to use. Given the premium prices they charge - nope, just not seeing it. Interesting bit about the lighting and license plate holders - in Europe, that's absolutely required, and you'll get ticketed/fined if you don't run those. In the US, it seems like we've gotten away without them for a good long time. I'm curious to see if that'll hold, or whether eventually the increasing numbers of hitch rack users will turn it into an issue of emphasis for law enforcement.

Meet the 12 Freeriders of Red Bull Formation 2022
Total population of New Zealand, as in the whole country, is a good bit smaller than Washington State. If you count Casey Brown, there are 5 Kiwis in this field of 12 riders. There's something about New Zealand...

Editors' Choice: Our Favorite Parts From the Value Bike Field Test
@dreamlink87: Oh yeah, dropper. Yep, that Brand X seems pretty reasonable; we've had good lucks with the OneUp.

Editors' Choice: Our Favorite Parts From the Value Bike Field Test
@racerfacer: If I were to build up a (trail) bike from scratch, it would probably be something like: DT Swiss 350, either as a complete DT Swiss wheelset, or laced to Spank rims (I'm heavy, so beefy wheels and rear hubs that can handle the torque are key) 4 piston SLX brakes (I've been running Zees for a very long time, but if I had to replace them, my wife's SLX seem to work really well and it's basically the same caliper) 12sp Deore or SLX (maybe splurge for an XT cassette) 36 Rhythm or Bomber Z1 Not sure about shock... None of that stuff is light or flashy, but all of it's proven, works, and is sort of in the sweet spot of value for money (i.e., not cheap, but solid performance for a reasonable price).

@melanthius: How does the Rhythm 36 compare to the Bomber Z1 - essentially the same thing?

E-Bike Battery Fire Destroys Florida Bike Shop
If you take a closer look at the picture in the BRAIN article that's linked to/quoted - I think it's a fair bet that this shop was not a retailer for high-end ebikes equipped with, say, Bosch, Shimano, Yamaha, or Brose motors/batteries. This is not to throw any shade at the business - there's a huge need for affordable ebikes, and unless you're an enthusiast and relatively well off, any of the big name brands are just plain out of reach. So as to what brand? Not a brand... - dollars to donuts, this was a bike or conversion kit sourced from the endless supply of them available on alliexpress, ebay, even Amazon. You don't know what you're getting, you don't know whether the certificate stickers mean anything other than the supplier knew how to turn scanned pictures into decals, and you certainly have no idea if what you're getting is one of the rigorously tested, high quality batteries/motors/controllers churned out by legitimate companies abroad, or a bad knockoff that'll burn your house or shop down.

Mike Sinyard Steps Down as CEO of Specialized
@notoutsideceo: At the rate out of warranty Brose/Specialized motors crap the bed, that's pretty much exactly what they have already for their ebikes, no?

Spotted: A Closer Look at the New Intense Prototype DH Bike
Maybe once they've sold through all their rebranded old stock via Costco?
