North shore rack in great shape. No issues or functional problems at all. I have a brand new lockable hitch insert I'll include with it. I'm only selling this because I don't use it. Its just taking up space in my garage. It is compatible with a normal 2" hitch. Will fit on any vehicle with a full sized hitch mount. It folds down when not in use, and swings out of the way so you can access the read door/tailgate of the vehicle. These racks also don't protrude past the edge of the car, which is great for fuel economy and avoiding damage. I'll spare you the sales pitch. If you're looking at this, you know that these things are awesome. Hoping to find this a new home.

Brand new set of Race Face Next SL Cranks G4 (the newest) 170mm Cinch system and swapable spindle make these the most versatile cranks on the market, so you don't have to worry about losing out if you swap frames in the future: -can be run 1x, 2x, or 3x -compatible with direct mount chainrings -compatible with both threaded and press fit frames These are brand new, in the original box, with all included parts. The Next SL is hands down the best crankset on the market: super light weight, but stiff and durable.

RockShox's Electronic Wireless Dropper Post - Mont-Sainte-Anne World Cup
Getting rid of cables - particularly ones that need to be fished through the frame - is a great idea.

Shimano Patent Filing Raises Electric Questions
If there was no money in mountain biking, very few mountain bikes would exist. Unless you are welding your own frames, you should reconsider your opinion.

Hanging Up Your Helmet This Winter? – Pinkbike Poll
Wish there was an option in the poll for "Why choose?" For me, skiing and biking are two totally separate things. Skiing is an all day commitment, and definitely seasonal. Biking can fit around other activities. I ski when I have time and the weather looks good. I bike when I have time and the weather looks good. Because of the different time constraints and very different nature of 'good weather' between those two, its not often a straight up choice between snow or trail. But I'm lucky. I can afford to do both, don't have kids, and can set my own hours 3-4 days/week.

Don't Punch the Baby - Opinion
I have a few questions about e-bikes: First, what type of power do they add? Do they assist pedaling, or are they a legit motor? Do they work going down and up? When I initially heard about e-bikes, the marketing pitch was that they would make it easier for older/less able riders to get up the hill, but they were otherwise very similar to a traditional mountain bike. For me, the main reason why I think dirtbikes shouldn't be on trails is because they destroy them. If an ebike gives you a little boost going up, and doesn't impact the ride down, I'm not sure what the big deal is. That said, I wouldn't buy one, and would definitely tease my friends if they brought one to the trail.

Strobel Hits The Whole Enchilada – Presented by Enve
I thought it was a Wreckoning, but it has a bottle cage. Maybe a new version?

The Mountain Bike Technology Wishlist - Opinion
This is more of a long-term goal, but I'd like to see integrated, electronic, and ideally wireless controls that access all the different components of the bike. Shimano's Di2 is the right idea, but the real potential of electronic controls is in integration. Have one mini computer that connects to shifters, brake levers, dropper post, and suspension. Like Shimano's system, you could change the organization of the controls and buttons to your own personal preferences. But instead of having each system separate, you could, for example, connect your dropper post and shock settings. Or your gearing and suspension. If the cockpit has two brake levers, a shifter, and 2-3 buttons, you could set them up however you want. Programmable to fully manual to fully automatic. I know that some companies are already experimenting with integrated droppers with rear shock settings. But those systems are super clunky and require a ton of cables and wires. If everything could be made wireless, it would open shitloads of opportunities. No more snaking internal cables through the frame. It would be a significant weight reduction just by ditching all the cables. Frame designers wouldn't have to work around the need to connect everything independently. Even if not fully wireless, instead of a bunch of independent cables and lines, a few wires could run front to back, all part of the same system. No redundancy, or need for thick, heavy cables. The obvious issue would be brakes, as modern hydraulic disks require fluid flow between the lever and caliper. For this to truly work, you'd need the entire hydraulic system in the caliper. But that seems like a problem that could be surmounted. I think geared transmissions are also the next step, but integrated controls is the one thing makes a ton of sense that I don't hear many people talking about.
