Emily Batty Announces Retirement from Professional Racing
I congratulate PBers on their non-sexist attitudes. However, let's not ignore the elephant in the room. Emily's extraordinary popularity has a lot to do with her extraordinary beauty.

Review: Stan's Flow MK4 Wheelset - Now With Magnets
Seems like the buried the lead. My Industry 9 alloy wheelset has a "hydra" hub in back. The near-instantaneous engagement really makes a big difference for me. Previous hub came with my Hunt wheelset, not bad but not nearly as quick as the hydra.

Video: Controversial Features? - Inside the Tape at Vallnord
@gnarnaimo: I'm a boomer (63), still on the single track on my human-powered mountain bike. This footage revealed the riders' speed and skill better than the Red Bull cast. Terrifying for mere mortals at any age.

Which is more incredible; 40 lbs or $14K?

Review: Silt's $1,000 Carbon XC Wheels
10 degrees engagement. To me, that is unacceptable. I went to a hydra hub and it the quick engagement makes things easier and more fun (also, less loud than previous Industry Nine hubs I have owned).

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 107 - How (And Why) Did You Start Mountain Biking?
After rupturing my spleen, I promised my mother I'd quit riding dirt bikes. I got my first mountain bike, a Velocitech Mountain Machine, in 1984. As that date reveals, I am old. I am much more risk-averse than 40 years ago. Therefore, I now allow myself a dirt bike (Beta XTrainer, sorry mom).

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 106 - What's Your Ideal Ride Look Like?
Eight hours! You guys are tough. I'm retired and can ride nearly every day. One to three hours leaves me without (additional) aches and pains and enough energy to do other things. I like fire road climbs and single track descents. Since I live in Salida, CO, I have plenty of choices (even in the winter). Afterwards, I prefer access to a real bed and a hot tub. Retirement is great, but I'd trade it for being younger.

Greg Minnaar Sustains Suspected AC Separation in Snowshoe World Cup Qualification Run [Updated with Video]
Heal soon GOAT. I also recently fought a tree, and the tree won. Unfortunately, that is the extent of our similarities on a bike.
