Tenneco Inc. Buys Öhlins Racing
@islandforlife: . I'm not a corporation basher, I love capitalism, but yes that's exactly what's going to happen. Ohlins will no longer be a special breed of suspension (talking motorsports here, not their less than successful MTB stuff). Does anyone in the know consider Rancho shocks premium units anymore ? But - that leaves room for the next small entrepreneur suspension company to bloom.

Ask Pinkbike: Shock Tuning, Flat Pedals, Ride Tracking & More
Its just the opposite. The people riding big chainrings are weak because they jump off and walk as soon as things get nasty and steep.

Now THAT Was a Bike: 1993 AMP Research B2
Yeah I rode Amps (and a Dagger) all through the 90's. Some of the same big mountain epics I do today. I rolled out my B5 last year and could barely ride it up the street - The stem was so long and the bike so spindly and sketchy. I can't believe we not only rode big epics but also tacked what we considered gnar on that thing. The bike wasn't pristine by any means but I still sold it for $700 on ebay, I was surprised by that, even though it was one of the first bikes using carbon in the tubes and lots of other innovative stuff.

Video: Flat Out in The PNW
Well you can downvote him if you want but its pretty lame to call it out as one of "Washington's best trails" and then say its a big secret. I didn't recognize it either so I'm guessing its some Bham stash based on the opening shot.

First Ride: Scott Ransom 900 Tuned
@Verg: Is there a published schedule of where you'll be ? (TBH flying into a festival sounds like more hassle that I'm looking for, I should really just identify a dealer who stocks and fly in, ride, and fly out, although I guess if I want to do a proper demo on dirt I guess that means chasing the demo truck as no dealers willl probably have dirt demo's available).

First Ride: Scott Ransom 900 Tuned
I'm actually pretty intrigued by this bike. Not a fan of the paint and I hate it when brands won't let me buy a frame only, but I'd sure like to ride one. Already checked with all the so-called Scott dealers in Seattle area and none are planning on even ordering one in. I even contacted Scott-USA about a demo schedule (I'd be willing to fly to one) but they never got back to me. Hard to sell bikes you can't ride.

Day 1 Race Report: The Deepest We've Ever Been - 2018 Trans-Cascadia
Oh man these are my backyard trails been riding them for years. Pretty wacky seeing a full out multi-stage enduro race. If I'd known I might have signed up for it but that's a decision from last Winter. I wish they would tell us what the actual routes are instead of vague descriptions. Obviously I have a pretty good idea what they are doing but still hard to be exact. Will there be a course map published ?

There's a $1100 Carbon Wheelset in Roval's 2019 Lineup
I've got a set of older 29-30mm inner Roval rims that only weigh 1586g. And retail on them was $1500 (I paid less). Seems like they're moving backwards.
