Fox Factory Invests $1 Million in First Year of Trail Trust
@blowmyfuse: I almost took out a family hiking with two kids under ten and an off leash labradoodle on a trail named for a certain slang term for white people. Once hikers get hurt by people bombing the bandit stuff we're going to have a problem.

Fox Factory Invests $1 Million in First Year of Trail Trust
@blowmyfuse: You go by Bent Creek gap on any given weekend too? Yesterday morning there were at least six vans packed with E-bikes and a few people shuttling downhill bikes for the off the map stuff. It's getting absurd and is going to result in a lot of shit shut down for the rest of us.

And get myself a ticket or my shit impounded? No thanks. It's not that simple in a lot of places. I do pick up a shovel and try to volunteer as much as I can with my local trail organization, but that often amounts to drain cleaning, fallen tree removal, and occasional rock armoring of existing trails. Every couple of years there is more intensive work, to decomission "unsustainable" trails and put in sidewalks. Yes, there is an extensive off the map zone where people dig their own trails, but that's a huge risk. I think it is perfectly reasonable to complain that all the funding and public focus is on trails that are an entry into the sport, or jump lines at a bike park. It takes private funding to get anything cool done. Recently in WNC we have: Black Mountain reroute to a sidewalk, brand new trails in Old Fort which are sidewalks, Dupont lake imaging area resurface turned existing sidewalks into a giant rollercoaster more fun on my rigid steel bike, planned butter gap reroute to a sidewalk, Berm Park while cool is just jump and flow lines. The only cool thing we've got coming is Rock Creek, Neko's new park opening this weekend. All the other work just dumbs things down. So it's not as simple as just picking up a shovel when the people tasked with directing trail design choose to put in boring stuff.

Industry Digest: Rapha CEO Steps Down, Trek Cargo Lost at Sea & More
@won-sean-animal-chin: The expert (Alan Coté, who writes a regular column for BRAIN on bicycle patents and who also frequently serves as an expert witness) testified that the threads connecting the adapter to the pedal spindle were not the “self-tightening” threads used on bike pedals for over a century (left-hand thread on left pedals, right-hand thread on right pedals). That traditional threading orientation is designed to take advantage of the “precession effect” to prevent pedals from unthreading in normal use. Bell’s Universal adapter uses a threaded shaft, where the adapter threads into a hole in the pedal spindle. This thread orientation created a self-loosening joint on both right and left pedals, Coté concluded in a report filed to the court.

Spotted: Another Full-Suspension Prototype From Chromag
@Trowel1: I just built a stylus and I am extremely impressed with the quality of the frame. It came 100% ready to build, I had it rolling the same weekend the frame showed up at my door. I'm looking forward to many years with it.

That whole system seems absolutely ridiculous and anyone with reasonable bike knowledge would not put that on their bicycle. Of course those with knowledge are not their target market. Not to say this woman is not smart, she simply doesn't know about bicycles and expects a product from a large brand to uphold some minimal safety standards. Not only are the threads going to unwind themselves, the diameter of that connection screw is ridiculous. Bell should get slapped for this, I wish it had actually gone to a decision in court.
