First Look: The 2024 Fox 32 Step-Cast Fork Has a Reverse Arch
@Hugi13: https://canecreek.com/back-to-the-reverse-arch/#:~:text=Well%2C%20recently%20the%20Reverse%20Arch,to%20be%20a%20Reverse%20Arch. https://patents.google.com/patent/US6607185B2/en The patent references the Pace design. It appears the main innovation with this patent was the single piece lower/arch and some brake interference and stiffening features.

Review: 2024 Orbea Occam LT - Modernly Convenient
I was not sure how bad headset cable routing was until my wife got a new bike a month ago. The geometry was exactly what she was looking for so I figured that headset routing was worth it as a trade-off. I swapped brakes and I now have the direct experience to say that headset cable routing is terrible. Never again will I buy a bike with headset routing. I do all my own maintenance and upgrades and this makes any work that touches the headset or cables a disaster. It was so bad I had to close the garage door while I was working on the bike because I was cursing so much I was worried about disturbing my neighbors.

Pinkbike Poll: What's the Duration of Your Average Weekend Ride?
@Dagabba: You may not have a lot of Viagra commercials on TV in the UK. In the US it seems like every other advertisement is for pharmaceuticals and there must be some regulation that requires them to list a couple of side effects. The Viagra commercials used to add the warning "Seek immediate medical help if you experience an erect**n lasting more than 4 hours."

Kavenz Adds More Options To Their VHP Platform
XC rider here. Efficiency is huge for XC. I don't see anyone using and idler frame for XC type of riding. There are plenty of very capable 120-130mm rear travel XC bikes that don't have the extra drag of a high idler.

Men's Category of Slopestyle Will Not Proceed - Crankworx Rotorua 2024 [Updated with FMBA Statement]
@EggsandApps: Thanks for the clarification. I was only aware of the Whistler fees. Any guesses on attendance and gross ticket sales?

Men's Category of Slopestyle Will Not Proceed - Crankworx Rotorua 2024 [Updated with FMBA Statement]
I am part of a cyclocross race promotion group in the US. We are one of the larger series based on participation. The last 2 years have seen a dramatic drop in sponsorship from the bike industry with regards to both cash and product. Costs have gone up dramatically. Labor for course setup, staff, portable toilets, rental of equipment, and everything else for putting on an event costs a lot more. Larger events like this are surely seeing the same thing. At some point the money just is not there and events go away.

Men's Category of Slopestyle Will Not Proceed - Crankworx Rotorua 2024 [Updated with FMBA Statement]
@xciscool: Spectators pay money to watch cyclocross races and people pay to watch them streaming. When VDP or WVA show up they get a lot more paying spectators. I've been to CX races in Europe where there are 20,000+ spectators paying over $20USD to watch. I don't think Crankworx charges general admission. I think you can pay for VIP access but I doubt that comes close to the revenue a big cyclocross races gets in Europe.

First Look: Intend Hover Opt Shock
Too funny. When I read that part about Trelleborg I laughed a bit because they supplied some parts for my former employer in a different industry and nobody in our organization was impressed with their stuff. We would never have "bragged" about using a Trelleborg part in any of our literature.

5 Cyclist Attacked By Cougar Near Fall City, Washington
A hiker was killed by a cougar a few years ago in the Mt. Hood National Forest. https://www.opb.org/news/article/mount-hood-cougar-diana-bober-hiker-death/ I do tons of riding in cougar country in the PNW. I've never seen one but I have seen tracks on rides. I'm sure cougars have seen me.

An Update from Dan Paley After His Huge Crash at Darkfest 2024
@plustiresaintdead: I had Spot also and they did pay out for all my out of pocket expenses when I broke my wrist when I had a high deductible health plan. It did take some time and paperwork. The organization I got Spot through stopped offering it a few years later due to a high number of claims. You can still get Spot through USA Cycling but it is a lot more expensive. I now have a better low deductible HMO health plan. If I still had the high deductible plan I would spend the money for Spot. I've broken 3 bones in 30 years of racing 15+ events per year and doing a lot of riding both on and off road. Even if you are very careful the odds are not in your favor if you ride a lot. All it takes is sliding out in a loose corner and landing a bit funny. A trip to urgent care, a few x-rays, and PT add up in hurry. Add in any surgery and you are out $$$ in a hurry.
