Everesting Queenstown's Skyline Bike Park
I guess I should roll out of bed and actually do something today.

The Eyecatchers 2019 - 6 New Bikes That Stand Out From the Crowd
Yeah I've been putting off buying a new bike for the past year. Just window shopping and kind of jaded with all the fancy plastic/aluminum super complicated machines. Starling was so out of left field and so refreshing that I eventually just happily bought a murmur which should be here any day now. Too bad PB comments hate Starling because of the Murmur review snafu. Oh well, they hate everything.

Videos: Commencal Looks Back at their Top 5 Videos of 2018
I love how much the sound has improved in MTB videos. Surf videos are starting to catch on but still lag- probably due to more technical difficulties capturing the sound of Poseidon.

Podcast: Why Carbon Expert Joe McEwan of Starling Cycles Chooses to Make Steel Bikes
I found the podcast highly informative, entertaining, and worth the time. I liked: his philosophy on bike design- material, stiffness vs compliance, linear frame design and the role of suspension tuning, thoughts on bike weight, and insight to what 29" wheels are actually doing while rolling. A really bright dude. Don't think most PB'ers took the time to listen and I think the shit show that was the original Pinkbike Murmur review was a shame. Don't know of anyone else that could build a bike in their shed (while working a job), have it be radically different, annoyingly simple, and a completely different aesthetic. And then to send it off and have it circumvent conventional bike standards and perform well in it's own unique way. Been looking for a bike for a while and being here in So Cal I see evils, SC's, intense, etc all day and have become so numb and almost annoyed at current bike design. The murmur is exactly what I was looking for in terms of geo and performance. The whole aesthetic (may not be for everyone) and design ethos is a refreshing bonus. Everyone might claim that the 'marketing is working' on me but take the time to listen to the podcast. It's just a dude whose already financially comfortable, has a family, and just wants to sell X amount of bikes to ensure he can continue to make bikes.

This is like when someone at Netflix analyzed viewer data and made the connection that combining David Fincher and Kevin Spacey together would be unstoppable.

Casey Brown Rips Up the Monashees: C3 Project Summer Series - Video
I'm not surprised to see her catching her own fish, freely drinking glacier water, and even savegely walking through the cold water with her socks on. Given her background and how she was raised I'd say this wasn't that much of a stretch compared to a normal back country ride for her.

OneUp Composite Pedals - Review
I like the nylons more. Just as light, look better when scratched and dinged (compared to aluminum which doesn't age gracefully), they slide off of rocks instead of getting hung up, and they help absorb trail feedback. Best of all they are much cheaper... but the industry will never tell you that the cheaper product is just as good, if not superior.
