The Edge of 17 - Your DH World Cup 2017 Preview
I'd love to hear people's thoughts on reducing the number of women in the field. I know we are in this constant flux of not enough women racing... but if junior women are pushed out of the event entirely and pro women are now reduced in numbers, how is that encouraging other young ladies to even try? I'm not a racer, so I have not stake in this whatsoever. But as a female with a (questionable) career in this obviously male-heavy industry, it is kind of a blow to read about this. Thoughts or insight?

Diamondback Mission Pro - little use

$500 USD
I have a lightly used 2015 Diamondback Mission Pro frame- size small up for sale. I used it for a couple of months before I switched to a different colorway. This is a cool burnt orange color. It has light wear and tear. 160 mm travel frame is perfect for all mountain use. It even shreds in the bike park. This is a rad bike for a smaller person. I'm 5'4" and it fit me well but DB says this size can go up to 5'7" in height. This is Diamondback's Knucklebox suspension and I find the bike to pedal quite well in spite of its longer travel. BB height is 13.5" giving good clearance, but being low enough to feel planted when needed. 66.5 degree head angle 17.7" chainstays Tapered Head tube Shock size: 8.5x2.5 (SHOCK NOT INCLUDED) Hit me up with questions. Buyer pays shipping. Happy to arrange a drop off/pickup in the Seattle/Bellingham area. Text 206.229.3213

Celebrating International Women's Day
I would love to see some of the women featured that are behind the scenes. More stories of women like Mal Burd. People like Kristin Smart, Janette Sherman, Amy Stanfield, Kristin Butcher, Natalie Gentry, Candace Shadley... These are the women that are making things happen in the industry by getting companies on board to help promote women in biking. And they all can ride really, really well, too.

Can Anyone Dethrone Queen Kintner?
@racecase: A perfect WC season does not a queen make in the Crankworx world. Skills needed to race DH are vastly different than those needed on a pumptrack. Not to take away anything away from Rachel - she is incredible and unquestionably the Queen of Downhill... but this is a bit of a different game. It would be super fun to see them compete head to head in everything.

World’s First Women’s-Only Enduro Race Series Announced
If it is self-segregation... so what? Does that actually affect you at all? If some women only want to ride with other women, what difference does that make? They're still a viable slice of the market whether they're riding with dudes or not. But since we're on the topic... I am probably the last woman who really wants to attend women's only events, as I think I learn better in a co-ed situation, and they're just not my cup of tea. That being said, I know many women who thrive in women-only settings and then go on to participate in co-ed events and races. I am in full support of getting more women in the sport and groups like the Dirt Series, Sweetlines, All Ride, and Bell Joy Ride are bringing women into mountain biking in droves. As far as I'm concerned more people riding bikes (men or women) is better for the growth of our bike culture. If this is what it takes to get women involved, then more power to them. Nice work Ady and fellow bitches!
