Video: Building Trails on the Oregon Coast
I stopped by there in April on birthday trip down the cost, it was an awesome find! Great place to spend the afternoon, run the dogs, swap out laps while watching the baby. Anyone who’s passing by should give it a go. I’m sure some more techie goodies are on the way it’ll be good to see what else develops.

Sick Bicycle Co Responds to Anger Over Undelivered Frames
Sounds like they robbed Peter to pay Paul, thought it'd work out, now the money is spent and they're eking out what they can, if you're not good at business, leave your passion out of it, you just ruin both.

Burning Question: Why Don't More World Cup Downhill Teams Sponsor a Woman?
@robito: It's pretty accurate. Look at the top men, the level of competition. Then look at the top women and the level of competition. You can be a top 10 female DH rider and consistently be 30+ seconds off the lead time, transfer that to the mens class and you won't even qualify. Then transfer that downstream to middling sponsorships, julliana, Liv, all the ambassadors etc, you can be of middle to low talent and still get free gear/swag/frames simply by being a personality. There is certainly nothing wrong with advertising like that, its just a fact that it is easier for women to stand out at the low/mid levels because there is less competition.

Burning Question: Why Don't More World Cup Downhill Teams Sponsor a Woman?
Its basic math, even the top women in the world have significantly larger time gaps than the men, there is a distinct talent difference, review any top 10 times from any world cup and the spreads are dramatically different. It's not tight racing. Maybe women are just naturally better at self preservation and don't think hurtling themselves down a hill at breakneck speeds is a good idea, doesn't really matter. Slow women don't get race deals because they're non starters from the get go Look at XC womens sponsorships? They get plenty, because its a competitive field.

Video: Peaty Chases Vergier on the Lousa World Cup Track
Well if thats a World Cup DH track, then tech dh continues to die a slow death, Enduro and XC will continue to surpass it both in viewers and sponsors. Trail bikes for life bruh! SMH

Interview: Juliana Bicycles' New General Manager Elayna Caldwell
I used my partners rubion on a chilcotins trip, my Bronson was out for service. I got shit from men, ladies, and the side eye by just about every rider, personally I couldn’t care less. But it’s there, Imagine dealing with that every ride.

The resale thing is real, like it or not. More guys are in the market and they won’t buy a “ladies” bike. Sorry. It’s to bad that the race team fell apart and Santa Cruz isn’t investing more, but without a real frame difference, can you blame them. Without new engineering it’s just a very nice niche vanity project. PS I’ve bought 2
