Burning Question: Why Are So Many Bike Manufacturers Putting Cables Through the Headset?
I must admit that the argument of not compromising the brake by drilling holes for aesthetic makes sense to me.. I hate this storage comportment trend, I pay extra for a fancy light carbon frame but the manufacturer proceeds by digging a big hole in the structure that he has to reinforce with more carbon. I'd rather have a lighter and/or stronger bike than store a rattling banana in the downtube. An elegant removable external bag would be as convenient and would not waste my money..

What this poll is really showing is when did you start to pay attention to DH racing? From old timers picking Nico to newcomers picking Greg

First Look: Cervelo's First Mountain Bike is a Race-Bred Hardtail
Dull and uninspired.. it has been proven by now that there is no benefit in racing a sketchy dated XC geometry.. long and slack is not just for Enduro. Even a gravel bike is more exciting..

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Ride At Night?
Night riding enjoyment is highly dependent on your light setup, with 2000lumens on your helmet and 2-- lumens on your handlebar, it's as good as the day... In the US southwest, the temperature is actually better most of the time at night

Video: Official Highlights from EWS Crans Montana 2022
The argument that Enduro is hard to film is BS, many others are doing better content with Gopro or iPhone. I still have a hard time enjoying it. i force myself to watch this video to know better how bad DH is going to become.. No offense Ric but I don't think. you have the voice or energy to be the voice of this sport. It sounds like radio infomercials from the '80s. There is also a lack of structure in the storytelling, it looks like an endless collection of facts illustrated by interviews. They should be more drama and the story should be shown or told by the riders before being commented by the speaker. Racing is not inherently interesting.. What is interesting is how each racer are racing.. For example, these crashes are gnarly and they have it on camera, they could be the center of this story.. what's about this zip-tied tire..They need to slow down and to show what matters in the story.. it looks like they are trying to shove as much as possible..

Loic Bruni Skipping the Mont-Sainte-Anne World Cup After Dislocating Shoulder
@duplex: I had a first dislocation 2 years ago and I was back on the bike few weeks after but since then I had 4 or 5 other dislocations and even more subluxations. I put lots of work on PT and I have been able to race but as soon as the intensity increase or the trail is rougher, the shoulder is gone. My next stop is surgery.. I hope that after that I can ride DH and moto with confidence.

First Look: Pivot's New Shuttle SL is a Flyweight eMTB
I don't really understand what is the point of having a short travel ebike. Efficiency and playfulness don't really make any sense with a motor. The same goes with kinematics optimized for pedaling. I would love to see an e-bike really built to work as an ebike.

Video: Nik Nestoroff & Chris Grice's Course Preview for the US National Champs DH
I raced there this week-end and even if this trail is not the sketchiest of all or doesn't have any big impressive features. It's difficult enough and enjoyable for a national. Remember the trail needs to be accessible to a variety of riders, not just a couple of wc racers. The track is really rough, holes and rocks non stop when it looks like a flow trail on go pro. There is an endless stream of medium 6 feet drops with sketchy landing, they look like mellow flat rollers on gopro. There was plenty of lines to choose. I often complain about race courses in the US (especially enduro) being too easy but I think this track does the job!
