Bike Check: Christopher Grice's Specialized Demo - 2019 Windrock Pro GRT
I expect his dad to support him and support his sports and hobbies. But there is a huge fuggin difference between supporting a sport/hobby and buying him a $10k bike, hiring a mechanic and having trainers and probably flying all across the country for races. That is big money, not just rec soccer like everyone else plays haha.

No that's the Geico caveman. Must have mixed them up, common mistake.

Burning Question: Why Don't More World Cup Downhill Teams Sponsor a Woman?
Myriam said it best. The percentages make sense based on the competition. The top 5 women have the same support as the top 15-20 men is what she said. For example, at Fort William last year 132 men entered the qualifying round to race, 60 advanced. In the women's race....23 raced. Just 23. So if you assume Myriam's numbers of top 5 have same support as top 20 men, they still have a better (factory support/total riders) ratio. If you bring in more competition where more than 4 riders have a chance at a podium and the competition is better, the support will come. But right now everyone resigns themselves to assuming that it will either Rach, Tahnee, Myriam or Tracey.

Will they keep the awesome raw carbon look or are they going to plaster S-WORKS in gaudy paint all over that shit?

Round 1 Voting Closed - 2018 Photo of the Year Contest
They did it so that they are actually comparable. To me a picture of huge landscapesand a tiny rider on a trail is completely different than one that is highlighting dirt jumps or roosts and its tough vote which is "better" as they are so vastly different types of pics. So it allows you to actually vote between similar items. I like it this way, at least for the first round.

The Guy Who Designed Chromag's Doctahawk Hardtail Explains Why It's So Long & Slack
He should have explained why it is so long, slack and stupidly expensive. For a steel HT its crazy since there are carbon full squish rigs made in the US out there (Guerilla Gravity) that have the same builds for a couple hundred $ more.

Burning Question: What's Next for Mountain Bike Helmet Safety?
Well shit, you and I had the same idea and posted at the same time haha. I agree on this 100%, I know people don't want robots or electronics ruining the ride but this seems like a pretty damn good place to put them.

Burning Question: What's Next for Mountain Bike Helmet Safety?
I know people don't want their riding to be ruined by robots, but could there be a place for real time metrics? So say you get in a crash and hit your head. There are sensors in the helmet that could do a real time report to an app saying "this amount of force to this part of the head. Here are potential injuries or complications. here is what you should do for said symptoms" Could give people a better idea of what they are dealing with. I know I have overlooked issues before because I felt ok at the time only to realize later that it was probably something a bit more serious.
