Man that looks terrible. Sharp cactus. Sun burn. Litter. Sharks. Give me a nice safe office job, rubbish weather and no sponsorship any day.

Video: Rotor's 13-Speed Drivetrain is Powered by Mineral Oil - Sea Otter 2019
On reflection I wonder why this did not come sooner. I know that shimano did air but when you think about it, we have had hydraulic braking for near three decades. A gear system is not dealing with heat build up and expansion issues, in fact the forces are hugely less so. I wonder why even mineral oil. Whilst marginal, there are lighter weight oils. Even water. With no heat then you can use what you like? If it was sensible £ Id consider it.

Video: Structure Cycleworks’ Carbon Enduro Bike and Linkage Fork - Sea Otter 2019
Its nothing new, Amp, Whyte, BMW. They all did it. But this excits me as to have the balls to do something like this when bikes are so dialed these days, is to say it must be pretty damned impressive. My only concern? When I had a forced marriage with a tree a few days ago at speed, other than a huge bruise and a hole in the tree from some XT lever wedding night penetration, all was good. Would not have been so on this I suspect. That front link is mighty vulnerable.

QBP's High-End Whisky Carbon Components will Sell on Amazon & eBay
Why do we always have to roll the same old LBS debate out. The world evolves. As the saying goes, evolve or die. Business has to adapt to change. Most online stores started as shops and evolved. If you chose to not evolve, then dont whine at those that did and succeeded. That makes you a bad losser. Business is competition regardless of anyones passion. Anyone doing it for a passion needs to understand that. Anyone that works is ‘in business’ (of paying mortgages, bills, etc) and needs to invest their assets (time/money) wisely hence moving to online purchases. There is a place for LBS but dont be so preachy about it.

Review: 2019 Whyte S-120C - A Long and Slack Short-Travel Trail Bike
@mikekazimer: You said you struggle to see who this appeals to and then we discuss the whole long and slack thing. My answer for you is this. UK trail centre weekend warriors. You never need too much travel, the tracks are fast and flowly and well surfaced. They never or hardly ever have technical climbs. This bike would do them all right up to and including the reds at Bike Park Wales. There is a whole chunk of UK mtb’ers that have never touched natural trails.

Round Up: 5 Lubes for Wet Weather Riding
The worst thing for your drive train is lube. ESPECIALLY wet lube. Its all shit and causes crap to stick to your expensive metalware. Squirt wax lube. My chains and cassettes last over twice as long. I dont get crap every where, stuff stays shiney, and best of all....it does not wash off and cause eco issues.

Inside Stanton Bikes' Full Suspension UK Manufacturing
I love my switchback. It might be a mk1 and it might be a bit tight on the rear tyre (since rectified) but it is my all time favourite bike. Got it paired with some 150 revelations and its spot on. I ride it more than any other bike I have. I thought about a new one recently then slapped myself. I need a new chain and cassette on it. Last night I had to ride something carbon. Damn it was annoying. Stanton you still owe me a T shirt from when I bought the frame and you lost my rear axle! - and the axle as well....but actually I dont care its just so fun to ride.

Lawsuit Claims Search & Rescue Delays Contributed to Mountain Biker's Death
The issue here is that people don’t understand or look at the whole picture. So cyclist- goes out by himself. Thats fine. Many do including myself. Right kit, right prep-shit still happens. As for SAR, as a SAR volunteer I have some knowledge here. Im not defending anything but if faced with a huge and speculative search area in low to no light in bad weather with limited resource availability then a first light search is always safer and better quality. Hierarchy of rescue says the rescuer and team come first ie you have to be safe yourself and in that be able to be saved. I have made calls not to go out in a storm at night and a body was located the following day. Its tough. But it was the right call. At best you would have got a hasty trail check with a low probability of detection and then a team undeployable when the variables are best. Imagine walking rough ground at night perhaps in a hood with rain and tree noise and your visabilty is where your torch/headtorch goes. Its mainly looking where you want to put your foot next! It maybe different in America but cell triangulation is a thing of tv and certainly in the UK will give vast seach areas (sometimes half a county!) Apps can narrow that but it relies on more than 2g. Good luck with that rurally. So many variables but ultimately tragedies occur.
