Opinion: When It Comes To Suspension, Don't Forget The Basics
@tgrummon: One way I balance front to rear is to check travel after medium ride or good squishing in the driveway. On my XC bike, if I use 80% of the travel on the fork I should also have used 80% on the rear. For my enduro bike, I want the fork a little stiffer as I want it to stand up a little more on descents, so when I use 80% on the front I want about 90% on the rear. Setting sag is the starting point, but may not get you how the overall suspension is travelling during a ride. My 2c.

@cxfahrer: That's right. And if you didnt want the build-up of dust you'd end up sliding the boot off the lowers to clean it anyway. Plus other problems and can't be bothered typing.

Video: Levelling Up Aussie Slopestyle
That 360 tailwhip at the end was great - I loved watching him watch the bike whip around, he gets the pedals, and then he flips his head around to spot the landing. Very clear. Nothing left to chance. Wonderful stuff.

I was hoping the pilot would just go "Fuck it!" on the last run and follow Greenland all the way through to the finish.

Specialized Launches Gravity Apparel Collection That's... Butter Colored?
Not very environmentally friendly. Why? Because even those that buy it won't wear it two seasons in a row, unlike usual MTB palettes. In fact, it may not even last a season before the pants permanently look like you've had a sphincter accident.

Myriam Nicole Reveals She Has Been Struggling with Concussion Symptoms Since the Lourdes DH World Cup
UCI: So Mlle Nicole, you crashed hard enough that you needed a new helmet and concussion so bad you had to rest in a dark room with an ice pack on your head? Don't miss your start time. Also UCI: The ratio of your road bike's seapost diameter to your fork length divided by the distance from the nose of your saddle to a perpendicular bisector from your bottom bracket is over 0.000045 nanometres outside of regulation. You are disqualified.

@gcrider: I heard Joe Rogan mention concussion in mogul skiers from the jarring their heads do, but I couldn't find a study.
