Interview: World Cup Downhill Riders' Union Rep Emilie Siegenthaler
@mattwragg: The status quo seemed to be working for most (UCI, RedBull, teams, brands, sponsors, riders, viewers, etc), or was at least a decent starting point for "organic" changes, like rider union for example. Granted it seems that the overall economics/marging for growth weren't fully clear (opinion, not fact). Could the sport afford races in more continents, etc... But the new starting point is largely up to Discovery and it seems from the interview that no one really knows what they're up to. The wait is making everybody nervous.

Canyon's Sustainable 3D Printed Prototype Mountain Bike
@Helmchentuned: anyone know if a serious alternative exists for 35mm ? This looks like serious enough stuff to consider on an enduro bike, but website says 31.8 mm

British Rider Needed 17 Stitches After Hitting Barbed Wire Trail Trap
@Slowisfast: please read my comment again. I did not say this person was not accountable, nor did I say all mentally ill people are potential barb wire trappers. As for mental illness, maybe we have a semantics issue. Studying of the course of events / childhood / cultural surrounddings of a human being, forming his character and influencing behavior in future settings, isn’t that a whole field of science where some behaviors are then considered pathological / abnormal ?

British Rider Needed 17 Stitches After Hitting Barbed Wire Trail Trap
@foxinsocks: that’s precisely my point. Again, no diminishing responsibility and the consequences should he/she face any, but this a-hole person in particular, and many violent/malevolent/cruel people in general, have probably become so through the effects of some kind of trauma, conscious or unconscious, from which they didn’t recover. Is it mental illness ? Is it human nature ? Anyway I firmly believe that if more people found themselves in front of psychologists to help them understand what’s going behind the scenes of their own minds, there would be a little less of this crap out there. Not the mention the actual nutcases who are just not fit for social life, but our chap here is probably not one of those. Is this point of view desperately hopeful of mankind and blind to the fact that traumatized, cruel, violent, etc. make up a significant (and growing ?) portion of the population ? Sure. But I have (and everyone has) in their surroundings people who are perfectly sane in their mind, who don’t feel triggered by everything said to them, who can be serious and light-hearted at the same time, and most importantly who give a f* and listen to you when you talk to them. They have gone through the same traumas as everyone else, but did a better job of recovering, by themselves or with help, and are more at peace with the world. You just can’t set barb wire traps during the day and go to sleep at night feeling ok. Something is not functioning well.

This kind of stuff triggers so much anger. Somehow, I consider the person to have set this trap to have some kind of mental illness. To want to hurt someone that bad (because that was obvisouly the intention), for reasons probably ranging form - "I don't like mtbers" to "they ride on my land / disturb my hunting / etc" - you have to be completely messed up. But to be clear : This does not at all imply this person is not responsible.

7 Custom World Champs Commencal Supremes
@Blablablup123: Yup, but if the suspension compresses, I just don’t get if the purple one is pulled or compressed. Adjusting it’s length seems to allow to lengthen/shorten the chainstays, but all in all it just looks hyperstatic. Well, obviously it’s not since the bike seems to work, but eh, this armchair engineer wants to know more...

Does anyone know if there is a video of the new prototype’s linkage in action ? I just can’t wrap my head around what that the dog link does.
