Rocky Horror Show Finals Photo Epic - LoĊĦinj DH World Cup 2018
After this weekend, the horse is officially in smithereens - we really, really, really need to push for more diversity among tracks year to year. Fort Bill et al will be great, but they just won't carry the excitement and challenge of something like Losinj. Awesome coverage as always.

Maxxis Minion DHF 2.6 27.5

$50 USD
This is a like-new Maxxis Minion DHF 2.6 27.5 3C EXO Maxx Terra. This tire has less than 10 miles on it / one ride. I tried to show the great condition of this tire in the pictures. The little rubber pieces on the lugs of new tires can still be seen on virtually all of the side lugs and most of the center lugs as well. Impressions: This was easy to install as a tubeless setup. A floor pump was more than adequate to get it seated. The inside of the tire has been properly cleaned and there is no sealant residue inside. The reason I'm selling it is that I am 135lbs soaking wet and had to run the tire at such low pressures that it was difficult to get a consistent feel to it. In other words, at a certain point half a PSI starts accounting for a considerable percentage of what's in there. This might've been helped with a downhill casing, but that would defeat the purpose of the lightweight EXO casing. My guess is someone 150lbs or over would love this tire as the grip was fantastic, it was a matter of consistency for me which was immediately apparent as I went out to try to dial in my ideal PSI. I ride on the more aggressive side of trail riding and someone with a different style might have more luck, as well. Just sharing my thoughts and experience as these 2.6 Minions are fairly new. Buyer pays shipping. Thanks!

Photo Epic from EWS Colombia: Two For Two
yep, would love to know what their schedules look like, travel, how they scout shooting locations, their movements throughout the race, compiling the recap and making tough choices, etc. Sven Martin went into some detail about this on vital's coverage of the Chile ews. I've always been fascinated by the process.

Maxxis Minion DHF 2.5 26" Two Types

$20 USD
I have two Maxxis Minion DHF 2.5 26" tires for sale. One has the EXO casing and one has the Downhill Specific casing. These would be perfect park tires, as the downhill specific casing features a longer-wearing but still supple to the touch 60a compound. These tires are probably from 2015/2016 and have anywhere from 10-15 small rides on them; they've been sitting in my closet on an unused wheelset for about two years. I weigh 140lbs soaking weight and am light on the bike, so there is A LOT of tread left. I measured a full 5mm on the center lugs and 6-8mm on the inside and outside of the cornering lugs. Please see pictures and let me know if you have any questions. Price is $20 per tire, $35 for the pair. Buyer covers shipping. Thanks!

@kamelfront: Agreed. Air cartridge pictured, but HSC comes in mighty handy with a coil, here's to hoping!

For sure. For me it's all about how it's done. We can definitely do things better and more responsibly. It's gotten way better than it was and a lot of the newer techniques leave less scars behind, but still, there's significant room for improvement and then we'd be closer to balancing the best of both worlds.

Opinion: Great Rides Don't Always Have Happy Endings
Gotta disagree on some points here. It's a really common misconception that the antiquities act prevents land uses such as mining, drilling, farming, hunting, etc. It doesn't. It doesn't even prevent the expansion of these uses. But I do agree that input from Native Americans is vital and many of them DID oppose the original monument. But man, everyone on here is drinking the political kool aid about land use and seemingly nobody wants land to be protected. The word freedom is throw around in this country the way legend is in mountain biking, as if it can be used everywhere and to justify everything.

Opinion: Great Rides Don't Always Have Happy Endings
@bkm303: Yeah I've flown over them. Have made a couple trips recently, and it just caught my eye how rare it was to see even a relatively large area without development. The point is not there isn't still land out there, it's that there really isn't as much as we think and it's crazy to underestimate how quickly we can completely inhabit and develop land. It happens fast. I grew up in a rural area that got completely developed over the course of my childhood. Different people have different standards for access. Driving a couple hours + hiking isn't easy access to me.
