Shimano Releases New Shoe Lineup
Amazon's Avitus Arcas is pretty much the GF800. Been riding the Avitus for 2 seasons now and still going strong. Was only $90 when I bought them.

Throwback Thursday: 10 Classic Photos of the Day From 2003
Ah, the Max Bell drop, do you ride the dirt and transition onto the concrete retaining wall, or do you just send with a slat of wood bridging the two. Looks like the rider in the photo opted for the slat of wood. PB was still in YYC at the time and I even remember its sister site, Biglines.com Is that still around?

Perhaps one exists already, but if not, could PB do a piece on the cradle-to-grave life of an e-bike? I'm curious to see/know where all of these batteries and electronics are ending up, once they've reached end of life? Should manufacturers have a responsibility to accept them back for safe disposal/recycling? The successful retirement/recycling of an older bike should be just as celebrated as the purchase of a new one. This would ease my conscience a bit more, but until then, I'm hesitant to add more stuff to a bike that may potentially just end up in a landfill.

SLOMO is flow state. Seems that mention of lateral acceleration is closely related to railing that perfect berm? Perhaps that's why I think about a perfectly shaped piece of dirt out in the middle of the woods? Maybe that's why I ride?

Review: O-Chain's Active Spider Adds Suppleness & Silence
It's unclear why so many band aid solutions are being created for the lack of ability of the rear derailleur? The rear derailleur is the oldest part on a mountain bike. By adding a clutch everyone thought it was solved, but hence it wasn't. Now it is standard to add a rubber coating (from the factory) on the chain stay to quiet down chain slap. What happened to wrapping an old bike tube around it, or has mtn. biking become so gentrified with these 10K bikes rolling out that is no longer acceptable? Get rid of rear derailleurs and move on to an internal gearbox. Easier to maintain, sealed unit, and centered on the bike. What is the rationale for putting your most precise moving mechanical part at the end of the bike where it travels the most and is open to all sorts of abuse, just seems outdated and flawed when an internal gearbox is already out there and available. Zerode does this just fine. Others have already put out demo models with belt drives as well. Seems this O-chain is just another compromise for a poor rear derailleur? Is this the new "Hammershmidt"? We all know how that story ended up :)
