Aaron Gwin to Join Crestline as Rider & Part-Owner for 2024 - Full Interview & Podcast
You must not like actual insight into a racers mentality. He was the best expert commentator in a long time and easily equal to Eliot Jackson who was superior to Claudio IMO.

First Ride: The 2024 Pivot Switchblade Gets Updated, Not Overhauled
Oh Pivot, you and your short chainstay love affair. Also, came here to verify the short chainstays and all the comments about it. Also no in frame storage is a miss. Good bike I'm sure but I'd like to try a Pivot as I have tons of friends who love them but for me they keep missing the mark.

@maffein: Hate to do so as I wanted to believe in the promise of immersion waxing but I agree with you. The rumors of it lasting orders of magnitude longer are not true for my conditions mountain biking. It does last longer but it's more like 2-3 rides of good performance before degradation vs. one with normal lubes. That's using Molten Speed Wax and proper prep as outlined on Zero Friction Cycling. I do very much like how clean the drivetrain stays and I do believe you'll get much better longevity if you stay on top of waxing but it does become a pain in the ass. I've been doing the hybrid approach lately which is to do a full wax and then wipe the chain down and apply Silca Super Secret a couple more times until I have time to do a full wax again. This works well and I'm very impressed with SSS lube. Very good and seems to last nearly as long as a full wax. Per ZFC it's performance with regards to friction is quite close to a full wax and it's longevity is great.

Mondraker Opens a New Base in the USA
I wonder what happened to their Colorado Springs office? Thought that was their US presence or did that end and now they are trying Boulder?

2023 Pinkbike Awards: Mountain Bike of the Year Winner
Two of the bikes that were nominated were seemingly only ridden by one editor. That strikes me as somewhat of a confounding variable. I will say though that each of the three bikes do look rad and are interesting to me for different use cases. The Trek does look interesting and I bet it goes downhill sublimely but I have a hard time believing that there isn't significant extra drag with two extra pulleys particularly that lower pulley. For a DH bike that's no problem but as something that is meant to be pedaled I could see the luster being quite lost after the honeymoon period is over.

Nils Amelinckx Passes Away After Courageous Battle with Cancer
Yes guidelines in the US are for age 45 now to start colonoscopies. Pretty much colorectal cancer starts with polyps so it is easily found with screenings. My big question is why the sudden increase in colon/bowel cancer? I've had my first colonoscopy a couple years ago, yes it sucks but this shows the alternative can be much, much worse.

10 Things I Loved in 2023: Matt Beer
@mattbeer: Thanks for sharing and glad you've found a strategy that is working. My wife is hyper nightshade sensitive and so we've cut out all nightshades for around five years now and notice that helps my gut big time. Once you realize how many food nightshades are in it can be a challenge dining out. Paprika, potato starch and many other nightshade ingredients are in a huge amount of foods and recipes.
