8 Modern Downhill Pants Ridden & Rated
Anyone have any good suggestions for winter pants that are breathable and waterproof? These are water resistant at best.

Rest in Peace: The Rise & Fall of Interbike
@tonestar: I understand what you're saying, and on one hand I actually agree with you regarding where to spend your marketing dollars, especially in the short term. But, I think that it may be a little shortsighted. Here's a little devil's advocate for you: When RedBull puts on an event, would they not think that the event was a waste of time based on the amount sold during it? (I know, an oversimplification) The big picture is that they are getting exposure and associating their brand.

@tonestar: I get that there is a cost to being at Crankworx. But I'm not sure about it not being worth it. I guess it may depend on the company and what you do once you're there. It's about raising brand awareness. Non-cyclists can become cyclists (not if someone has a pissy look on their face because they don't want to be at the show though). And giving out free stuff can also be the hook that gets people in. IMO, pulling out of a festival (not a tradeshow) is shortsighted and puts the product and the industry out of the public's eye. Everyone is fighting for people's attention. Stepping away from that is not a good idea.

@Brewbike909: think more like Starbucks did "when they created their philosophy of the customer experience." Not everything else they do/did.

@Ktron: The traditional LBS needs to adapt to survive. They need to think more like Starbucks did when they created their philosophy of the customer experience. IMO, the LBS needs to become a place to be, not a place to shop. The shopping will happen, but the hanging out or dropping in is the customer experience. The LBS needs to become a community hub I think in order to survive and thrive.

It would be interesting to see if there would be an appetite for a direct sellers' show. Have one big demo fest where people can get together and ride back to back bikes. There still is no substitute to swinging your leg over a bike before you buy it.

This is an interesting comparison between this and Crankworx. There has been a bit of a decline in representation at Crankworx Whistler the last couple of years. It's still hopping at the top of the Village, but as you walk down it peters out. I wonder why.

Video: Matts Staggs Goes In Front of the Lens
The chorus of the song sounded like a theme from an 80's sitcom reboot. lol Loved the dual shots. Nice work.
