I started geometrygeeks.bike - the world's biggest geometry database - with a friend. A spare-time project that grew waaay beyond expectation.

Video: Rab Wardell Attempts a Record Time on Scotland's 153km West Highland Way
I've done it in 2 - makes for a good paced ride with pub grub dinner in the middle, still with reasonably sized days. Stayed over in Tyndrum and used one of the many bag-drop services so we could ride light. Took a pair of running shoes stuffed in camelbak for the walk/scramble above Inversnaid. Some REALLY excellent sections of trail, worth doing in their own right if you can't face the full 95mi!

Video: Chris Akrigg Goes Full Boost Mode on an eMTB
Chris Akrigg - what a legend. Great edit, so intense from beginning to end! Is that steel plate under the BB standard-issue, or a special defence against E-krigg?!

Update: Atherton Bikes Seeking Around £600,000 in Crowd Funding Investment
Crowdfunding can work well for consumer-facing companies as it's essentially marketing, and once you have a few hundred (or thousand) investors, that's good word-of-mouth. It can be a very cheap (in terms of % of ownership given away) form of growth finance. Crowdfunding a B2B business is a red flag for me, but here it could be a good move. It wouldn't surprise me if making bikes from 3D-printed lugs, carbon tubes and adhesives is really hard. Once they have it nailed, that's a strong competitive advantage. Yes, they could have been more actively selling but... what if they sold more than they can deliver and piss people off? Or what if it's not quite ready for volume production yet? A serious failure in the field, under a paying customer, could kill the business. More transparency would be good, because a vacuum of information causes speculation. However, this type of finance is regulated to high heaven in the UK, so they will have chosen their words on the website very carefully. They need to spend the money on what they've said they will - selling and manufacturing capacity. Note Atherton Bikes is not predicting a 6.1% CAGR on investments, they're saying the cycling market is growing at 6.1% CAGR. No prediction is made for a return on investment, either as capital growth or dividends. I wish them all the best... I may even buy a few shares.

Ask Pinkbike: Fixing Rattling Brake Pads, Best Backcountry Bike, & Are Shock Lockouts Necessary?
I put an o-ring around the fins on each pad, so there’s effectively a wee rubber bumper at the front and back edge. Silent.
