Peaty's Introduces 2 New Products to Its Maintenance Range
@fatduke: Peatys Sealant is the worst MTB product I've ever used. The nasty glitter sticks to everything. Your tires, rims, clothes, garage floor. Such a waste of money. Glad I threw it in the bin.

10 Men's Kits Tested - 2019 Summer Gear Guide
@alexmarengo: I get your point, but everybody can make a difference. I personally don't have a car, I pedal everywhere or take the train. Especially when it comes to bikes (and clothing), it's possible to buy a lot of bikeparts which are made in europe. You can even build a whole bike thats made in Europe. Start with a frame with pinion gearbox (Nicolai, or some nice custrom steel frame), add an italian EXT shock, a German Intend fork, Renthal alloy cockpit, Trickstuff brakes, Mavic wheels, Selle Italia Saddle, Vecnum Dropperpost, Hutchinson tires and so on.. Of course these parts need resources as well, but at least they're made by someone who lives near you and maybe in a country with good laws protecting the environment.

Hope Questions Lack of Parity in Shimano Micro Spline Licensing
On the other side, hope is one of the few companies that has the capabilites to design and produce an own 12-speed cassette within next to no time - probably that's the way to go for hope? They already got 11-speed cassets and their own freehub standard..

@privateer-wbc: You need a hope freehub for hope cassettes as far as I know.

10 Men's Kits Tested - 2019 Summer Gear Guide
@stewspooner: You're correct, my statement was more focused on the impacts of wool production, such as sheep contaminating the water systems and so on. I'm not an expert, but I believe that you can keep a merino shirt for a longer time and that it needs to be washed less frequently. On the plus side, there are no nano-plastic-particles that go into the water system when it's washed.

10 Men's Kits Tested - 2019 Summer Gear Guide
@Skinnyman: I read some articles about the environmental impact of wool production a couple of monts ago - they mainly focused on the fact that sheep have to poo, which contaminates the water, and so on. Based on that I wrote my above statement which is - I have to admit it - probably not correct. I found this study which concludes that the energy that goes into merino production is smaller than the energy needed for polyester and the likes. However, I'm not an expert in that field. http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download?doi=10.1.1.553.6556&rep=rep1&type=pdf

@Skinnyman: As much as I like merino shirts, I'm afraid the production of a merino shirt has a higher environmental impact than polyester :-(

Finals Photo Epic: All To Play For - Fort William DH World Cup 2019
@teamkr: Thank you! So in the case of Finn, standard knee guards, light elbow guards and nothing to protect the shoulders. Given the speed of the pros and the crashes they are likely to suffer in practice and in the races, I'd call that a minimalist kit, even though I think it's not uncommon.

Does anybody know what kind of body armour these pros are wearing? Helmet and back protector of course, but apart from that I'm having difficulties to see whether knees, elbows, shoulders and chest also also behind a foam/D3o/whatever protection?
