Scottish Council Concerned by Mountain Bikers "Stripping Off"
Kinda reminds me of Vancouver's north shore back in the 90s, before they built the parking lot at fromme. I used to feel sorry for the home owner who had bought their house only to get invaded as the sport took off. The view certainly changed,and you could see a full moon most of the time. I guess you wouldn't have to worry about watering your shrubs in the Summer. We were kinda prickish

First Look: Trust Performance's $2,700 Carbon Fiber Linkage Fork
I have to admit I am interested (when the price comes down to earth) just for the possibility that the damned thing wouldn't creak like an old wooden ship after a couple of weeks!

Ridden & Rated: 4 Trail Bikes Under $3,000
@Three6ty: You have to budget buying a proper cassette for that bike though. The E thirteen is pretty nasty as it wears out incredibly fast in the first 3 gears (I killed mine in 6 weeks of normal use). Best just to buy a sram gx cassette right off and just be stuck with a shimano/sram mixed drivetrain. Then you are only worried about the E thirteen rear hub that has super fast bearing wear.

Is This Wheelie Cheat Device the Best or Worst Idea Ever?
I did something sorta like this back in 2003, when I was at engineering school. We used the predecessors of the same stuff to read what a bike was doing in order to mess with the compression damping of the rear shock. Going uphill and smooth gets lots of compression(near lockout), going downhill and rough (small hits) backs the compression way off. Way easier to do it nowadays with things coming on evaluation boards with outputs to servo. We had to reverse engineer a servo from a remote control car to see what the input was in order to scab one together. This was also pre-iphone era, and to get the accelerometers we had to prove that we weren't trying to make a missile control device. Won a bunch of awards for it. Have a laugh at me from 15 years ago! a href="http://www.ece.uvic.ca/~elec499/2003b/group11/">

The Lost Randoms - Interbike 2018
I already have a pair of shorts with this type of waistband, not for the bike though(I use them at the gym). No pressure points at all. Nothing to hang up, nothing to break. They also look like any other pair of athletic shorts. I am going to have to give these bike shorts a serious look.

Retro Tech: 6 Classic Mountain Bikes - Crankworx Whistler 2018
@haileypooch: That entire bike gives me the willies! When you put metals under high stress cycles, and then let them sit for a long period, and then put then again under stress you are looking for something to break. (one of the reasons that a car that has been sitting for along time will breakdown when you go to use it again) I would be afraid of every part of that bike failing catastrophically. I bet every piece of rubber is dried and brittle. I remember those tioga tires being crap in the day, can't imagine riding whistler with a bald, vintage pair.

2 Bike Checks from the French Enduro Cup - Val d'Isere
@MikeGruhler: I can see undercut, cold lap, porosity and massive variation in the beads. All of these would cause the welds to fail any inspection before you went to do any other means of testing on them. All of these faults cause stress risers, which lead to premature failure. I wouldn't let a family member ride that bike.
