1up USA Quik Rack - Review
It's the most bomber rack ever. Period. I messed up the tilt bar one day and didn't check that it was clicked in place. I hit a bump on I5 and the rack dropped to the pavement at 75 (still in hitch) with 3 high end bikes. I drug it for at least 300 yards before getting a spot to pull over. No damage to bikes and the rack just looked like it had spent a few minutes in a belt sander. 3 years later and it's still totally solid. Made in USA goodness!

Brain Injuries in Mountain Biking - Are We Doing Enough?
Thank you so much for writing this article. My life dramatically changed three years ago from a garage accident. I spent a year with moderate to severe PCS symptoms. Although many of my symptoms have subsided to the point that I can enjoy biking and other activities, any crash or any mild hit to my head is enough to reaggrivate my head injury. I've leaned a lot, but most of all the physical and mental challenges of dealing with the short and long term effects of a TBI are life changing. I cannot stress enough to anyone that gets a TBI to REST and seek therapeutic (physical cognitive etc) treatment asap if you don't fully recover within 10 days.

ZEP's How-To Mythbusters: Position and Balance for Steeps and Heavy Braking
One of the best ways to think about it that I've ever been taught is that the more you can control your bike through your feet, the more freedom you have with your hands and arms to manuever and adjust to the terrain. That means, whether you are going up or down, putting your body mass in the position where you have control of the bike through the pedals. In practice, that means you'll move back and low when going down and forward a bit when going up , but if you think through your feet (not your butt!) you won't get too far in either direction. Get too far back and suddenly you are relying on your arms to "hold on" to the front end. Get too far forward and only your arms stand between you and an OTB. Stay square over the BB relative to the angle of the ground and you'll have the ability to adjust no matter what situation you are in. Article does a great job of explaining the same principal!
