Beyond the Bike: Jordie Lunn - Video
I recall him saying that the head was his first tattoo also. Crazy to look back at him 10 years ago! "The snake went into his snake hole"

Finals Results - Leogang DH World Cup 2017
@Blablablup123: Easy and safe are not synonymous...lots of riders complained about the track being easy and boring. Minnaar complained about one feature being unsafe, because it clearly was. Took out more than just Remi. Other riders in the hospital as well, including a broken femur.

10 Kooky and Cool Finds - Taipei Cycle Show
Agreed, a sustainable and renewable concept that is actually thinking forward. Crazy how much less plastic could be getting made and thrown away if these were able to replace all the shit plastic pedals that ship with sub $1000 and box store bikes... or any other nylon/composite material item we use day to day.

Deity Overhauls Entire Company With New Line
@J-Carmichael: and you're very wrong if you think 35mm will take over. Enve refuses to make them for the same reason Deity didn't want to make them in the first place. 31.8s not going anywhere

Deity Overhauls Entire Company With New Line
@J-Carmichael: because if somebody buys a bike with 35s on it oe. And they want different bars but can't or don't want to buy a stem, Deity is now an option to that rider. Not that complicated, slow down a little

Deity Overhauls Entire Company With New Line
@J-Carmichael: dude, read their reply like 3 comments up. "Nevertheless, people are needing options to upgrade their stock OE 35mm set ups and we should have a solution for them."

Neck Braces - Should You Be Wearing One?
Agree with you 110%. If my full face is on, so is my neck brace. When I was younger I had a bad otb from nose casing a landing. Got sent to the bottom on full lawn dart, crushed in the side of the helmet. The amount of energy that went into the race, A-Stars at the time, was wild feeling. I clearly remember sliding upside down on my head before flipping onto my back. I thoroughly believe that a properly set up brace can reduce concussions as well. I've had my share, to have hit my head that hard and not feel even the slightest concussive side effects sold me on wearing them for the rest of my life. Currently in an Atlas Carbon Crank. Little more of a pita to put on, but flows with your body better and doesn't put any pressure through the backplate to your spine.

MRP Boost Adapter Kit for DT Swiss Wheels
@Racer951: OMG, $45 is soooo outrageous!!!! You all must live on Taco Bell for being this cheap, Jesus. Bet you spend $45 on dinner pretty regularly. Welcome to 2017, where employers actually have to pay their workers enough to afford a living, especially in the US. Sure, you could go buy a set of pedals for $45 that came off an assembly line with 1000 more in Taiwan or China, out of a factory that makes only pedals. How many of you actually ride that cheap of pedals anyhow??? Or you could build a new wheel to a 350/240 boost hub, new spokes and a nice rim, and start wondering why you just spent $300+ vs $45 for no real noticeable performance gain. Crawl back into your BuySell cave and keep hunting those second hand deals, it really helps this industry alive. If even only long enough for everybody to keep bitching about prices and lack of product they actually want.... OR make your own if you work around machines for a living
