New Clothing From Dainese - Pond Beaver 2021
@bbeak: cargo bib shorts are the way. Then you can run decent looking shirts/jerseys without the roadie look.

Ask Pinkbike: Adjusting B-Tension, Cutting Forks, Making a Full-Suspension Rigid, & Quieting Loud Hubs
@rosemarywheel: Can't speak to either. When I researched Onyx, I was put off by the weight Any sort of one way bearing system as a freehub mechanism will be heavier I think? My comment was based on my surprise by how much quieter my I9s were after servicing them with that DuMonde Tech free hub grease refrenced in this article. They went from the typical I9 scream to WAY softer than even my tried and true DT Swiss hubs. It seems like I9 has addressed their bearing issues, and the noise basically has a very easy tune via some lube now so it would be hard for me to recommend anything else. Still I have a set of DT 240 hubs that have seen multiple rims and still run like new, with minimal service. For me it's those two brands. For totally silent hubs, I would just kill my inner weight weiney and try those Onyx

@TheR: I've definitely been in situations where I was glad to have the loud freehub, but more times than not it detracts from the experience. One ride on the quiet hubs, never going back. Cool part is, you can make them louder just by riding them.

Not a fan of the I9 scream either, but the DuMonde Tech grease mentioned in this article makes them almost completely quiet. Not much to hate after that.

@mattwragg: The east coast riding in the US is a departure from your experience in the Sierras. Western NC, Eastern TN, VT, NY, VA - all contain large swaths of public access back country single track, regarded with most riders as, old school technical. Pisgah is where I have the most experience racing, there is very little in the way of machine built or flow trail. Most of the trails here are old hiking trails, multi-use. Racing is any where from 30, to 80+ miles with 3,000 ft, to 10,000 ft of climbing with descending on mostly steep, rocky, and technical terrain. I've ridden in San Raphael once. It was a blast but I'd never think that experience is all France had to offer. I'm quite sure this event has it's own very special character. Check out the Pisgah Stage race if you're interested. It's good that we both seem to take pride in the regions we ride in. Luckily the US (east coast) has gotten a few things right, and public access to proper mountain biking is in no shortage in the region I reside. Cheers!

I think racing like this has existed for quite some time. While I can't speak to the terrain in this race it sounds to me like it's how a lot of us set up our bikes to race the endurance races in Pisgah, NC. You need crazy fitness and skills to excel, or survive, really suits the best all arounders, aka mountain bikers. :) I'm sure BC bike race is very similar as well.
