Intense Announces Lower Retail Prices and Hybrid Direct-to-Customer Sales
but it is kind of a weird set up. yes its online and supposedly delivery thru a shop. but the prices haven't decreased with the move to that model. and in fact, if you're Canadian, everything is now in US dollars and so the price has actually increased. substantially. and when I asked at my LBS, they indicated it worked poorly enough that they were not interested in being the LBS tagged with a sale. To be clear, this LBS pretty much meets all the PB comment "criteria" for being an excellent shop - excellent mechanics, no pressure sales, support the local scene, etc. etc.

Behind the Scenes with G-Form
well... I think protection preferences are going to be very individual, likely based mainly on fit. I had a set of POC VPD 2.0 knee and elbow pads. certainly no ventilation with either. The knee pads worked great for me but the elbow pads were awful. I've crashed hard 3x this summer (on the same arm) and the elbow pad did nothing but slide up or down my arm each time. yes, its the best size for me. Based on some recommendations from snowboard racing friends, I ordered the g form pads. The fit, feel is certainly way better than the POC stuff. will see what it does in an actual crash but so far these seem much better. and I fail to see what POC's sponge material does that the G-form does not. they are both pliable and then firm up on impact.

1up USA Quik Rack - Review
@BaeckerX1: agreed, but in my experience you then have to half crawl underneath the bikes and rack to pull the rack back up to flat position. and that takes a fair bit of muscle in a very awkward position. so I avoid it if at all possible. but awesome rack though; wouldnt have anything else

Trek Slash 9.9 29 RSL - Review
They collaborated with Dave Weagle if you consider being sued by DW for patent infringement to be "collaboration". I dont care about either DW or Trek but alternative facts and all that....

Stepping Out of the Pain With Gee Atherton
this. just wow. really makes me wonder what passes for his"medical team" - especially given he is at the highest competition level in the sport... having had the injury myself, I would think a good physio or doc with at least a bit of sports medicine training should have been able to figure out real quick just based on some simple strength and range of motion tests what was going on.

what is the distribution route in North America? My understanding is it is only through Specialized.

Race Face Turbine Dropper Post - Review
I supposedly have a 9point8 on order but waiting over 2 months and now its the middle of summer so I am not holding my breath for it. It would appear that although RF licensed the design from 9Point8, they went and used their own materials, different manufacturer, etc. Can anyone confirm if that is indeed true? seems a bit backwards that a major brand cant get the details sorted better then the small outfit. It frustrating because I want a dropper (I wear my Chromag seat QR out!) but not willing to pay a ton of money for something that seems pretty much guaranteed to break
