Chain Reaction Cycles Won't Sell You Shimano Parts if You're in North America
Yep, no Rockshox for us in Japan from CRC for over 5 years. If you haven't been geolocked out of online shopping before, consider yourself lucky.

POV: Brendan Fairclough's Red Bull Rampage Run
Rampage....has been moving closer to "slopestyle with exposure" for most competitors for the recent past but is still freeride for Brendog. Personally, I much prefer freeride and Brendon's line left me applauding. But that is just my preference and there are many more who prefer lines similar to Lacondeguy's winning rampage run from 2014. However, would I want freeride lines to dominate if I were the Red Bull promoter? Hell no, I'd rather try and sell slopestyle with exposure, there are far more opportunities for both narrative creation and for an over-excited commentator looking to go nuclear on the superlatives on the payoff moves.

@jefe: "Companies only sell what people want to buy" . Where are all the everlasting light-bulbs then? Let 100 psychology graduates, better still, 100 marketing CEOs, tell you their responses to the following question and then see if you still wish to stand fully behind your statement. "Companies cannot manufacture desire in consumers. Discuss" I know of not one, not a single one, of my Japanese riding buddies who has bought an e-bike, or who intends to. Not until the marketing departments get to work on their psyche that is.

New Casing, Compound, and Width Options From Maxxis - Interbike 2018
So do I. However the press releases and production schedules always start off with 27.5 and 29; be patient and the 26 versions appear; so it was with the Minion SS, which I picked up in 26 recently, and all of the Schwalbe Addix compounds. Does wonders for the blood pressure it does, not reading press releases.

Burning Question: Is Super Boost 157 Spacing Going to Become the New Standard?
Couldn't agree more. I have not bought a new frame for 5 years; all the changes have saved me a tonne of money!

Review: Cotic FlareMAX
Seconded. Help and advice has always been forthcoming from Paul and Cy; a pleasure to have done business with over the years. Nearly ten years ago now, Cy even arranged to have one single BFe frame stickered up and sent over direct to me in Japan from Taiwan so that I didn't have to wait for the frames to go first to the UK. Top. top people. Top, top bikes.
