Cascade Components Announces Kona Process 153 Link
Marketing secret: Barring any objective measurement of "better", things don't have to be *better*, they just have to be *different*. If you have Thing X and someone tells you Thing Y is better and you pay money for it you will think Thing Y is better than Thing X. Especially if there's a tangible difference.

Imagine being his doctor. "OK, you're extremely lucky. You broke 9 vertebrae but you narrowly avoided being paralysis or being a paraplegic for life." "So you're saying I can try again next week?"

Pinkbike Poll: Would You Rather Shuttle or eMTB?
I've never e-biked, but e-bike no doubt. I enjoy a shuttle day as much as the next guy, except for: * waiting at the bottom for an hour because there aren't enough shuttles * getting your bike off the shuttle last, and getting stuck behind everyone and his mom at the start of the trail * getting your bike destroyed by the metal pedals on the bike next to you * paying $50. BTW I have no problem supporting the trail associations, and I do. I get the social aspect of shuttling, but you can have that same social aspect e-biking up the road, especially if you're not gasping for breath. And that way everyone's naturally spread out on the trail.

Revenue Round Up: COVID Effects Begin to Be Felt in Q2
I've not bothered selling my old bikes for quite a while, since I have plenty of storage space and, for me, my bikes are artwork. I've got some hanging in my house. But with the pandemic I've been selling all my old or seldom used exercise and fitness equipment. Old weight equipment is selling on Craigslist for more than I paid new. I've sold my old Pivot Les, Yeti SB66c, Specialized Fatboy, not to mention a couple nice road-bikes. They're all selling for at least 30% more than they would have last summer. I have a road bike that has been on Craigslist off-and-on for the last 2 years. Looks like that's about to sell as well. A local shop here in Portland that usually has 2000+ bikes in its warehouse now reports less than 200. There are great opportunities right now for us bike hoarders to convert bikes to cash and get someone onto a bike for a great deal for both buyer and seller!

He didn't even bother raising his seat to allow for better leg extension. My knees hurt just watching this.

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 15 - What's Holding Mountain Biking Back?
Well, I mean the Yeti SB165 is an all-mountain bike and the trail centre is on the mountain, right? And the weight savings on those enve rims will come in handy on the gentle rollers.
