Vali Holl's YT Tues DH Bike - Leogang DH World Cup 2018
@Startgas: Many colors to choose from would be perfect ;) I got a read and blue bike. i wouldn't mind a red fork, my black one looks... well unfinished, but if it came with a white one i would have already stopped over at the autobody shop next door for a layer of paint...

Vali Holl's YT Tues DH Bike - Leogang DH World Cup 2018
i honestly love it! The black forks on nice colored bikes always remind me of the unpainted black front bumpers when some teangers try to "Tune" their Honda Civics... I wish there was more color options to choose from. I would love a blue on for my bike...

Cycling Brands Under Scrutiny in Gun Control Debate
@onemanarmy: like Chevrolet, Cadillac and Buick have nothing to do with General Motors? How is it so difficult for some people to distinguish between companies and brands? One Companie can have multiple brands. Happens all the times... SRAM: Sram, Rockshox, Avid, Truvativ, Sachs Bicycle Components, Quarq Amer Sports: Mavic, Enve, Salomon, Atomic, Wilson, Precor and more Dorel: Cannondale, Schwinn, Mongoose, GT, Fabric, Sombrio and more Adidas Group: 5.10, Adidas, Reebok,Taylormade and more KTMGroup: KTM motorcycles, Husqvarna Motorcycles, WP suspension. Well i guess it's gonna sort it self out anyways now and vista can be one happy arms manufacturer not bothering about its outdoor brands any more as soon as the sale is done with.

The Story Behind the Start Order at the UCI World Cup DH in Losinj
Give them protected riders a second chance qualifier in case they have a flat or something like the lcq in supercross. They get another shot at qualifying and you start it in the order it's supposed to be. fastest first!

Cycling Brands Under Scrutiny in Gun Control Debate
@Deuce-DeuceAndAHalf: 1) i never said regulate the market. AT least not on goods. The example was Old school industry like GM sells a fraction of what innovative product does. Yet Conservatives spend a lot of our Tax money on trying to protect old outdated industries. Do you really think we need to help the coal industry for example? that's the past. What we should do is Enable people to get education and prepare themselves for the future. Society changed and it will continue to do so at en even faster pace. No on of our generation will hold the same Job for all their live. It's just not going to happen. Everyone of us including the government has to prep for the future but the right just lives in the past. 2) Tesla might not be as financially stable as one would like it to be However the whole Industry is hurting world wide. How many times have the big 3 been bailed out in the last few years? Just because a company is financially in a tough spot you should not disregard the fact that they managed to outsell any other american automaker by a factor 10. Wat i am trying to say is that their product an marketing is appealing to people outside of the US and that's how you turn a trade deficit around. Not by introducing tarifs.

@Deuce-DeuceAndAHalf: Me and I assume many other liberal thinking people read and see what the right/conservative reports. The problem is that it does not add up. Their conclusions are nonsensical and the facts are most of the time just wrong. It seems to me the Conservative/right side always has "good" slogans you can scream but its just not thought all the way through. For an example take the trade war the conservative side is getting us into lately; The conservatives argue American Companies are going to be off better if we retract from all trade agreements and introduce tariffs on goods imported to protect what is left over from a former manufacturing based economy. For some reason the Conservative never talk about the response caused by this policy. The fact that if you do this other nations will first off all also introduce tariffs which can only further weaken exports. Exports from industries that currently are still Healthy like Farming on the west coast. So with tariffs on top those Farms will not be competitive any more when they try to export their product and they will sell less. On the other side American companies will still have to import Aluminium to produce Cars for example. They will have to add the higher cost of materials to the price of the product which again means the prices of goods in the US will increase. Also American brands like Bell or Giro, Burton or Levis, Apple and Dell will suffer from this because they develop and trade so their product will be more expensive for US customers with tariffs and their employees will lose jobs. Stuff like that just doesn't make sense if you think it through. If you want to sell more support innovation! help the industry to be more competitive and produce products that people in other countries want to buy. That way the trade deficit changes. No matter how high the tariffs are you slap on imported cars, People will still buy them because they are more fuel efficient, saver, fancier or what ever. In return Europeans will not buy Chevy Pick-up trucks but if an American Company would come up with something that is innovative the will. Take Tesla... They sell 10 times more cars outside of the US than GM and they just started... If you want to win you have to get better yourself not punish the ones that are better but that the BS that Conservative America first tries to sell us because it easier to scream and get people who don't like to think excited.
