Pinkbike Poll: Would You Pay A Rider For Their Video?
You-tube premium is set up for pretty much this scenario. Either watch ads on the free version, or pay the subscription fee. If the content's good enough, it will make money. The problem is you don't know how good something is until you've watched it. I think the last action sport movie I paid for was Travis Rice The Fourth Phase because the trailer looked amazing, and it was self indulgent garbage. With so much good stuff available on you-tube for free, it really has to be mind blowing and it's becoming harder and harder to blow minds, so people are skeptical about paying for things. Subscription models help resolve some of these market reactions to disappointments by providing a larger catalog.

Video: Finn Iles Gets Up to Speed for World Cup DH at Cypress Mountain
My first ever time riding the shore was on that trail. I was on a 2006 stumpy, no armor except for an xc helmet. It pretty much went like that... or I might have got concussed real quick, one or the other - can't quite remember.

The Complete 2021 Rocky Mountain Altitude Lineup Compared - Across the Pond Beaver
@healthcare1: They're not really hiding them though. It has become industry practice to say "xt drivetrain" when only the deraileur is xt. At least Rocky is saying slx / xt. I agree on the hub though, the 370 is a throwaway part that's too expensive for a cheap bike and too crappy for a good bike.

@Shartriloquist: Try a different browser. Mine wasn't working on Chrome, but did on edge (first time I've ever said that).

Last Chance to Donate & Win - Over $16,000 Worth of Prizes to be Won During Trail Karma Month
Awesome job trailforks. People - remember that membership is more valuable to a trail association than a donation as it provides valuable political clout. If your donation is close to or more than a membership then it is worth considering that. (Memberships usually aren't tax deductible though).

Results: Enduro - Crankworx Summer Series
I was looking forward to watching this and having some excitement - doing the races, posting the results and not showing us anything that went on is not exciting. When do we get to watch?

The Best Tech From the Losinj DH World Cup
I was trying to think of new DH bikes that have been released in 2019 or 2020. Struggling to think of many. Scott released theirs I think, Intense. I'm sure I'm missing a lot, but we only seem to get 1 or 2 new DH bikes a year.

EWS Updates Rulebook & Lays Out EWS-E Format
The extra batter idea is stupid. The battery aspect of ebike racing is one area that could make these races interesting. If they can figure out a course where there is no way people can use full power all the time on any bike, and force some kind of battery management strategy. Ban the extra battery, make the manufacturers find the balance between battery life and ability to ride under human power. It means these races would then contain a more significant element of fitness, an element of strategy (when how to conserve battery life), and general DH / tech riding skill. They have to stop pretending this is traditional bike racing, and think of it as motor sport to make it interesting.
