Movies For Your Monday
There's several Friday Fails packaged up in the sh!t mix - nice edit. It's also pretty funny how many banger bmx clips include loosing your hat. The same guys also wear toques, which never fall off. Come on! If you're not going to wear a helmet can we at least #MAKE TOQUES GREAT AGAIN

Video: 7 Year Old Crosby Zoomerman Hits a 24 Foot Double For the First Time
Riding with my kids is just not my jam. I love to goof off with them on the easy stuff but have no interest watching them push their limits (and finding them). Following your kid and watching them come right to the edge of eating it and then recovering is so nerve-racking; I don't find any pride in it - I'm too scared. I've been to the ER enough times on my own to know I'll probably have to take them or meet an ambulance there at least once, but watching it unfold live is just way worse. As much as I love to ride, in these situations I'm a scared-ass parent first. For context: 40ish dad who's happy doing relatively crazy stuff himself but feels required to dial back my kids' similar aspirations.

Video: Remi Gauvin Compares if Different Brake Pads Can Make You Faster
>> I have even heard of some riders putting one of each type of pad into their brakes for best of both worlds Not sure if that's how science works.

Must Watch: Garrett Reynolds & Friends Raise the Bar for Street BMX in 'Always Fiending'
@rpdale: or maybe there's awesome people and assholes in both disciplines? Can't we just get along... and admit scooters are the real enemy?

First Ride: Cannondale's All-New Scalpel SE
@endurocat: ...and was a PITA when I tacoed a rim, built a new wheel up, installed it and went "WTF?" Few memories are as vivid as the pain spent perfectly dishing that wheel and then realizing the rear end on those bikes was asymetrical. Live in learn ...

Video: Conflict Arises Between 17 Year Old UK Rider & Apparent "Trail Saboteurs"
@jaame: dog shit is an amazing substance. The way it penetrates between the knobs of your tires or shoe treads, then clings on through repeated attempts to clean it... And the smell - how can something stink for so long? or be both a sticky viscous solid and a runny fluid. I hope we have our top scientists on this...

@pourquois-pas: >> critically analyze ALL sources of information to see through the bias This is true; I guess the challenge IMO is when does something move from "bias source of information" => "propaganda"? Surely there's some point at which I can safely ignore certain sources without fear of shrinking my viewpoint? Otherwise you are in very real danger of entering "some person XYZ's ideas are decent.." territory. I think it's a challenge of nuance and judgement - 2 things that don't go over very well on the internet or specifically online comments...

First Look: Pivot's Phoenix Dock Tool System
@nvranka: Well, my contra-anecdote: I have a 2x2 inch square patch of scar tissue in my right thigh from when I fell on my car keys about 8 years ago. YMMV

Review: TRP's New TR12 Shifter and Derailleur
@Konyp: I just don't get the preference for 12 spd vs. wider range 11. The only person who cares about the actual number of gears play guitar in spinal tap.
