Review: Kuat Huk Tailgate Pad
Moving blankets are plenty durable, and cheap enough that when they do wear out you can replace 60 for the price of one Kuat "blanket". Easy to modify for the tailgate latch access with a boxcutter. Just spray paint "Kuat" or "DAKINE" across the back with neon colors and you'll fit right in with the diesel dentists.

Race Day Photo Epic: Val Di Fassa Enduro World Cup 2023
Ed Bull Media house was the only one with coverage of the brutal climb section. Was neat to see and hear from the riders after! I don't wish he was injured, but him doing coverage is probably the best thing going for EDR right now.

First Ride: Pinion's E-Drive System - A New Motor With an Integrated Gearbox
Motor + gearbox makes a lot of sense. They really put it all together into a nice package that doesn't cause retina damage like some of the early e-bikes.(Pivots with the increasingly bloated bottom tube digesting a small mammal). Only reason I'd get an ebike is for pulling trail tools, and getting rid of that rear cassette and enabling a heavy duty chain is fantastic for wear parts and reliability with that higher torque!

Video: GT Bicycles Introduce The Privateer Project
Most wholesome marketing any company can spend on. Worked getting me to google Yoshimura for the first time, and see those pretty stem caps! I have a GG spec'd with as many USA made parts as I could find, which may be getting some Chino made bling in the future.

First Ride: Guerrilla Gravity's Updated Smash
@jackalope: "We do this not because it is easy. But because we thought it would be easy." -- (guess) a decent number of companies exploring thermoplastics, but defaulting back to Taiwanese expertise in traditional carbon. From what I've read about GG, the founders had previous aerospace experience with the Thermoplastic manufacturing, so a lot of their R&D was figuring out how to build bikes cost effectively. Kind of like silicon chip manufacturing, all of the secret sauce is in the manufacturing efficiencies.

Pinkbike Poll: What Factors Influence Your Bike Purchasing Decisions?
This is a big reason I bought a GG. They list all their bearing specs online, so you can buy new bearings from any supplier. Not being tied to begging the MTB manufacture for overpriced bearing 'kits' is a big step forward. Supporting NA manufacturing was another big reason I went with them, and the price is reasonably competitive with Asia produced companies.

Specialized Cuts Global Ambassador Program
@pinkbert: " also sucks to lose your job. no need to pick sides." Agreed. The fact that influencers loosing their job is a relatively public event, seems to make it more dramatic than any normal layoff situation. Then when they write long IG posts about how unfair the layoffs were... it strikes hollow thanks to all of their previous statements worshiping their brand.

Well the influencers were allllll good sucking at the teat of an "anti-human" "capitalist" company like Specialized. In a human billboard role which actively attempts to socially engineer all viewers that they need to drop whatever productivity they add to society and instead spend money and time on specialized bikes. Seems fair to not have sympathy for influencers publicly crying when life isn't all playtime outside. That's life. They're a cog in the machine is to socially engineer desire, no more. If everyone had their job, the human race would starve to death.
