We Explain the Bike Industry | Pinkbike Magazine Show Ep. 2 - Taipei Special
@mikelevy: I've spent years riding all over Taiwan, it's amazing, and if you also happen to enjoy road riding and climbing it's absolutely one of the best destinations in the world. The MTB scene was pretty good in Taipei for a while but the riders were generally older and many have moved on, there's a been a resurgence in recent years but decent trails are still a challenge to find or take a good deal of time and effort to access. In addition to the challenges Jaame mentioned, a huge hurdle has always been a lack of trail work. The mountain bike community, exept for a very small group of mostly foreigners, simply does not maintain their trails. There's potential for sure, but until the riders see trail building and maintenace as their job rather than the responisbility of someone else it's not going to happen. The road scene on the other hand is HUGE, and inclusive, and 100% worth a trip to experience.

Video: Supply Chain, Quality Control & Riding Bikes with Kona's Production Coordinator Nicole Hsu
Nicole's great! When I lived in Taiwan a few years ago she was one of the first people to show me the local trails in Taipei.

Spotted: Prototype Fox DH Shock - Mont-Sainte-Anne World Champs 2019
@englertracing: two different terms for the same thing. Rebound shaft speeds are highest when the shock is more fully compressed and the spring force is greatest (end stroke), shaft speeds are slowest when rebounding in the initial stroke because spring force is less (beginning stroke). For rebound only, position sensitive and speed sensitive essentially mean the same thing since the speed is going to be dictated by the position in the stroke and vise versa. This doesn't hold true on the compression stroke since shaft speed will be dictated by bump force which is variable, while rebound force will always be the same for a given shaft position at a specific spring rate. There always seemed to be some confusion for some riders whether RS was referring to beginning of the shock stroke or beginning of the rebound stroke which led to some people getting their adjustments backwards, for simplicity and consistency across the platform it probably makes more sense to refer to the adjustments as Fox has.

Nothing fancy at all. Pocket wizard transmitter on the handlebar and receiver plugged into the shutter release on the camera, all pretty easily triggered with my left thumb. If you look carefully at a few of the pics you can see the shot being taken.

Acre Hauser 10L Pack - Review
Manufacture overseas, get accused of selling out for cheap labor. Manufacture in America, get accused of being too expensive.

With it being so dark a single flash can easy freeze motion on an exposure this long. My back is transparent because the flash is hidden in the rocks below and in front of me on a slight angle, thus no light ever hits my back or the very top of my head. A second flash behind might fix this but it would likely be visible in the shot and possibly light up too much of the surroundings, both of which I very much wanted to avoid. Though not completely intentional, I rather like the 'ghost' look to it and in fact once I figured out how to set everything up over the first few nights, the biggest challenge was getting a shot with just the right balance sharp rider and transparency (I have quite a few headless looking outtakes). Again, this probably would have been easier if this wasn't a self-portrait and I didn't have to fire the flash from my handlebar while bouncing over the rocks.
