A Look at Velosolutions' Innovative New Bike Park in Norway
@TannerValhouli: well said, the only reason to hate on this project is if you actively want to keep people out of mountain biking, save for that a project like this is resoundingly positive to that community and the sport overall.

Pinkbike Annual Community Survey Results: Who Are Pinkbike Readers?
@fewnofrwgijn: No... its definitely not equal, not even close. Jokes based on sexist tropes are used here on a daily basis. I'm not saying that these individuals are doing so with any any malice intended; however, it is emblematic of the fact that misogyny (to varying degrees) is overtly and subliminally engrained in most men greater that say 25 years old. It took me having two daughters to gain some clarity on this subject, and while I can never truly understand (because I'm a man), you start to see how most of human history is a story of men doing what they can to control and exert power over the world around them, and asserting control over women was an extension of that thinking. I believe the whole point of her comment (if I'm understanding it correctly) isn't that people should look past her gender (I didn't realize being female was a negative attribute others had to try to "look past") but accept it and not create a hostile environment toward it. There are plenty of morally upstanding individuals who are advocates of women, but still have engrained sexist tendencies they're not even aware of.

Silca Releases $85, 3D-Printed, Titanium Cleats
My guess is that they don't want to make any implied warrantees about their product in their marketing materials, stating that something is their belief vs. a fact makes a difference in your later obligations to customers (refunds, liability, etc.).

Video: Mountain Biker Captures Bear Encounter While Self Filming
@harryhood: gotta be Pipeline. That's a surprising place to run into a bear. On two separate occasions this past summer I saw a bear near the skinnies that go over the old foundation at the start of Hardy Hall / end of Cheddar, but that spot makes more sense.

First Look: RĂ¥ Bikes' .12 Full Suspension Enduro Bike
There can't be a big market for these bikes and I'm sure most of them hemorrhage money when viewed as a commercial venture. And it definitely does seem like there are more and more of these type of bespoke brands. My guess is that most of these brands don't start out with the intention of being commercial vehicle for profit making, but rather as a way for people who love bikes to take that love to the next level. Then after years of toil these builders realize they're basically an entrepreneur and have already done 80% of work towards commercializing the production of a couple dozen bikes a year. At that point the investment to get it over the hump is relatively minimal compared to years they've already put in. Would love to have some stats to back up my theories.... but for now I say the above with a disclaimer that I have zero real facts on my side, just conjecture.
