Fastest Woman in the World - Interbike 2017
@yeti-monster: My best was tucking underneath the big curve that's on the back of a garbage truck. Had to drag the brakes as the eddy sucked me into the back of the truck. 25 years ago when I was young and really really stupid.

Rotec is Back With a 5'' Travel Play Bike - Interbike 2017
@MVbikerMTB: You nailed it when you said the shock helps - I've ridden BB pivot bikes and they are horrible. The shock is the massive bandaid for a bad design. LSC was introduced years ago to fix pedal-induced bobbing, but the few designs left these days are almost so good as not to need it. This design is an exception.

I think it would look the same. At first I thought it was Gatto's work.

Pro GRT Finals Roll In: 2017 Kamikaze Bike Games - Day 2
@E-ROG: I absolutely agree that ebikes are great for the elderly,injured, and disabled. I think the photo of the Le Mans start shows these guys don't have any excuses. Nothing achieved easily was ever worth doing.

Carbon Conundrum - Pole Bicycles Ditch Their Plastic Project
I've cracked six carbon frames, and two aluminium frames. The cracked carbon frames all came from the same manufacturer, but the carbon frames I never cracked came from other manufacturers. Don't blame the material if it breaks - blame the manufacturer.

Pinion Gearbox to Enter US and Canada
There's loss of power when a chain goes through the jockey wheels. This is well-documented. Every time someone talks about loss in IGHs or gearboxes they ignore derailleur losses. Try to set the cranks spinning backwards on a BMX or SS. Now try the same on an MTB with a derailleur (and try at the top and bottom cogs).
