First Ride: Prototype Supre Drivetrain - Crankworx Whistler 2022
@usedbikestuff: Nearly all new inventions start out as ideas, then make it to prototypes, then maybe make it to low production number boutique levels, then if the invention is actually a great one it will likely become mainstream, cheap, and easily available/serviceable. So your complaint is that this new drivetrain didn't go straight from a prototype in Cedric's garage to full scale SRAM/Shimano level production numbers and availability overnight? Calm down, give it some time. Those darn automobiles will never catch on either because there is only one in the world made by Karl Benz and he doesn't even have any spare parts, I'm sticking with my horse.

Nerding Out: Do Kinematic Graphs Really Describe Suspension Performance?
@vw4ever: You're not looking at the big picture. Norco and other brands don't design bikes for Pinkbike members and hardcore riders that like to hit the gnarliest trails as fast as possible. They design them for their general sales market which includes all kinds of people, some of which will never leave the nearly paved rail-to-trails. So they design their suspension to a more middle-ground point which will accommodate all their buyers better. CC probably makes great stuff that works very well for intense experienced riders, but that's hardly the majority of people buying bikes. So no, bike companies don't want help from CC because they are targeting different markets. It's the same reason Toyota doesn't just build Supras, because most people want a much more lame but more practical Camry.

Who took this picture? A 60yo woman who was just kicked to the ground with an injured shoulder?

@rockymountainsrule: Keep an open mind, what if this guy is super afraid of Allen keys. What if your shock needed a big spider to adjust it? F#ck that, I hate spiders.

No, Mondraker Isn't Working on a 31” Wheel Enduro Bike
@mi-bike: I keep forgetting that every mountain biker in the world is a pro level racer, and therefore things like comfort, fun, looks, and the bike's performance on people's local trails as opposed to pro race courses doesn't matter at all. Only speed on race courses matters, why can't I get that through my dumb head.

Day 2 Randoms - Eurobike 2022
@fielding: I'm glad to hear it. Learning a handful of basic trials type riding moves and dialing in your slow speed balance can really transform your riding and improve your entire biking experience. It's a great feeling to be able to ride a very sketchy technical trail all the way through without skipping or going around any of the cool obstacles and never touching your feet to the ground or having to lift your bike over that new log laying across the trail. I mean, it's those difficult technical obstacles that make it mountain biking right? If you're going to just ride around or walk your bike over all the tech, you might as well just go get a gravel bike because that's probably what you actually want to be doing.

Day 2 Randoms - Eurobike 2022
@fielding: Imagine not being able to do endos and nose pivots because the "biking" community now considers those things unsafe. Imagine all the fun technical trails being widened and smoothed so all the unskilled e-bikers can effortlessly ride every inch of trail without ever feeling discouraged or even challenged at all.

Maxxis Updates Forekaster Tire for Downcountry - Eurobike 2022
@pisgahgnar: I've had really good luck using these skinwall tubeless adapters, they're basically a thin airtight butyl layer that attaches to the valve stem. They make mounting the tires easier too.
