Dropper Post Used to Win One of Road Cycling’s Biggest Races
@choppertank3e: that would be great but for some reason the big companies cling on to uci regulations… like all of us NEED to go world championship racing with our commuter and training bikes… *facepalm* probably because all the roadie product managers still dream of a uci career during their lunch rides, at leadt at Specialized thats for sure the case

I really would like to know why anyone would want the front tip of a saddle point up? I tried to ask this question before like when specialized launched WU... no answer / reason revealed itself yet though...

Burning Question: What Do Racers & Team Managers Think About Discovery Taking Over the World Cup Rights?
Nope, its not stay the same i am afraid of, its going back to what had not worked before. You might be to young to remember when mountain was (about to) going mainstream and teams had major sponsors like just formula 1 or nascar teams that had absolutely no interest in sport but potential $. We had races on pay tv for no one to see and major tv stations in individual countries having the rights, just like it still is at world champs, but not broadcasting it because mor people would watch a rerun off CSI… Whole thing fell apart becaus viewer’s where just not there and for a few years we could not watch at all because the broadcasters still had the rights for a few more years when the decided to stop spending to produce… what followed was a crash of racing because the sponsors got no exposure and polled out too… But you know what they say, the only thing we learn from history is that we don't learn from history…

Burning Question: What Do Racers & Team Managers Think About Discovery Taking Over the World Cup Rights?
They will call downhill „The Deadliest Ride“ and riders will have to stop mid ride for a scriped Interview. American riders will be the heroes, of course, and the Frenchies all will have to be evil. Sorry Loic, no more Super-Bruni you will be Dr. Brun from here on…

Opinion: Are New Bike Component Standards Really That Bad?
You got that completely wrong @henryqinney I am not blaming bike companies every trend and standard however useless it is. I am blaming you. Yes you heard that right! It media hype that make some people at some companies do stupid things. New thing gets announced. Someone spreads the word (looking at you ;) ) Some gets nervous about not being able to sell stuff anymore. Companies change stuff to also get the media push. Result: A few month after buying bought a super expensive frame The pace of this is getting faster and faster because you need something to write so your website gets clicks an money. It’s getting so fast that by the time you roll a new bike into your garage it’s already outdated. And yes that matters. How about replacing something if it breaks? I had it happen twice in recent years that i broke a crank. Both occasions i got a new replacement crank from the company selling the crank for free. Both occasions i had to spend a couple of hundred of dollars on bottom brackets chain rings and so on just to get riding again with no difference in performance… Yes i get grumpy when i read about bb137, wouldn’t you too?
