Maxxis Unveils Tubeless Ready DH Tires, More 2.6” Options
@Maxxis: yeah, that's what I figured. But I just found it odd, about a decade after tubeless (TR) became commercialized, its only now available on the dh casings. I always added a sealant, homemade or otherwise, to my UST tires. Never had a problem. Of course tread and side knobs were long gone before a problem would show, anyway...

Yeti Fox Factory Team Adds New Riders and Sponsors for 2017
@MitchThompson89: https://www.pinkbike.com/news/aaron-gwin-interview-2010.html Losing Gwinny was tough for us. He is not only an amazing racer, but he is a great person and fit well into our program. Our investment in racing is based on developing riders. We have a junior, national and World Cup program that allows our riders to progress through our system as their results improve. In order to provide the proper support, we invest in great mechanics, coaches and strength trainers. This gives our racers the tools they need to progress to the next level. Sure, great riders come through sometimes and rise straight to the top, but most require development and guidance to reach the next level. People ask me all the time if we get tired of big teams "stealing" our riders after we put so much into them? I don't begrudge them at all. I want riders to earn as much as they can as professional mountain bikers. As a small company, we simply don't have the resources to match huge offers and we aren't willing to walk away from our development efforts for a single rider. It's always bittersweet to lose a rider like Gwinny, but the Yeti program has a lot of depth and the loss of a single rider won't affect our team long-term. I would like to see more teams invest in gravity development programs. If we do it right, I feel the U.S. could move back into a powerhouse in gravity in 3-5 years. - Chris Conroy, Yeti Cycles

Counterpoint: Do We Really Need E-Bikes?
"Well, that's double or triple the amount of use on that particular trail, which means that maintenance is going to be required sooner than it would have had only non-motorized bikes been used. It's not as strong of a sticking point as the potential for user conflicts and losing trail access altogether, but it's something to bear in mind nonetheless. " But every rider won't be riding 2-3 times more, making lap after lap... The people interested e-bikes are people who are passionate about mtb but their lifestyle from there 20's is not compatible with their lifestyle in their 40-50s. riding 4-5 days per week, bumming around in that little mountain town, has turned into working 60-70 hour weeks schlepping it in the city and maybe riding twice a month. I could either pay a guy to shuttle me up in his shitty chevy pickup and get a few quick laps in or I could pedal my ass up on an ebike, bum leg and all, and work my ass off for a couple fun laps. Either way my impact to the trail is exactly the same...
