Opinion: Why Have Bike Makers Ignored this Grassroots Fix?
@rossburton: This is what I've always thought as well. Not sure where I originally heard it though, or if it's truely "the law"...

Opinion: Why Have Bike Makers Ignored this Grassroots Fix?
@Mojo348: Agreed. I think the #1 issue that wrapping protects from is stone chips, but bikes are for the most part (where "wrappable" and excluding beloved steel frames) are not going to corrode from minor blemishes to the paint or finish, it's purely cosmetic. Based on the wrap on my car however, the plastic itself inevitably get's fuzzy and looks terrible at the edges, which on a bike would be even worse (closer to the eye and dirtier). It's also unfair to say it adds "a boatload of resale"; this may be true for a commercial operation that wraps an entire fleet and sells it every year, but your average 5-yr-old bike is going to look a little beat up regardless if it was wrapped, plus can you imagine trying to peel off all that plastic after it's been gouged and shredded by years of hard riding and weather?

Coach Chris Kilmurray Weighs In On 2019 UCI MTB Rulebook Changes
@WAKIdesigns: they may have a legal leg to stand on if you sign the waiver, but (at least in NA) all of those organizations still carry liability insurance, primarily to protect the executive/directors from personal responsibility. It's the same as signing a waiver at the ski hill but the better believe the resort carries a big liability policy...

even if CC says "on sale" it's never on sale. If you deal with them, the house always wins

to everyone slamming you as the rando internet tire guy, chain reaction sells them for around 60-70 CDN as well - are they "legit" enough to buy from pinkbike?

Video: This 3x World Masters DH Champion is 71 & Still Shreds the Whistler Mountain Bike Park
I'm *only* 44, been riding lots of disciplines for years and still suck, but riding the biggest and baddest stuff of my life. Don't plan to quit anytime soon, but I have to admit injuries take longer to heal than they used to, and I've had enough to not think about them before trying something scary for the first time...
