GoPro Launches New Hero 7 Camera
Seems kinda like sixes to me. Buy new camera, or buy post software like reelsteady. Never used reelsteady personally, but from what I’ve seen, you could launch a potato and call it a drone after processing. $399 though...

Tariffs on Chinese Bicycles & Parts Will Begin Next Week
@code26: one of the first things trump targeted in his tariffs this year was raw materials such as aluminum and steel. Seemingly unrelated to manufactured products. But, to cope with the tariffs, producers in China up their prices of materials. US manufacturers now have to buy their materials at a higher price. To deal with this higher price, they charge more for their product that you want to buy. Now with this last round of tariffs, the components being spec’d on that product, if you wish to buy complete, are also going to increase in price. Any components or materials sourced elsewhere already tend to cost more than from China. And now that China is upping their price, and driving demand else where, these other sources can up their costs as well if they choose to.

Part of the tariffs include steel and aluminum from China. So manufacturers in the states have to source material elsewhere or pay the tariff. So even locally built frames still take a hit if they’re using Chinese sourced materials.

Ask Pinkbike: Multi-Tools, Suspension Suggestions & Cutting Carbon Bars
@dontcoast: not to give props to Cannondale on the lefty, because well it’s a lefty. But if you seal the bottom with a drain plug or another one of their press in top caps, you have a massive storage compartment. Can easily fit an incredibowl m420, lighter, and more than enough ganj for even a multi day mission.

Riding The Tetons: Grand Targhee Resort - Wyoming
@GuerrillaGravity: one of the better dh trails I’ve ridden at a resort in general. Only one I’ve personally ridden that was comparable was The Canyons DH Trail. I’d highly suggest Blondie to Shake em on down. Top to bottom at the resort and you’ll hit literally ONE built berm the whole way down. Blondie is steep, rocky and loose. Shake em on down is basically a flat corner drift track through the trees. Both were ridden in completely raw and are developing some super fun ruts and line choices as they get more traffic.

Have you ridden Blondie lately?? Not every new trail being built is a flow or jump trail. And to as for your reference to Fernie, they just finished building a jump and flow trail... https://m.pinkbike.com/news/video-evenings-on-a-brand-new-flow-trail-in-fernie-british-columbia.html

Red Bull Hardline Riders Announced
@Endurojack: killer rider, goes fast and sends big, honestly think he could do well at hardline. His attitude and reputation precedes him otherwise. Rampage drama mainly...doesn’t always play well with others.

Red Bull Hardline Riders Announced
While I’m truly far from a fan, this particular race seems like it would be a good fit for Logan Bingelli.
