Nordest Cycles Introduces a Titanium "Enduro" Hardtail With a Pinion Gearbox
If you've figured out your trails and reached a plateau in terms of skills improvement, getting a shredder hardtail can help take your skills to the nwct level. High-speed stability and encourage railing trails, but with the rigid rear you have to refine your line and technique. 6 months later you're a better rider.

Pinkbike Poll: What Supplies Do You Bring With You on a Ride?
Remarkable that 1200 people carry a phone so they can call their mom and get picked up because they don't have a chain tool.

SRAM Eagle Electronic Shifting Spotted on Nino Schurter's Scott
@RedRedRe: If you had ever touched ETAP for road, you would know this argument about spending time with bugs, charging, etc is totally off. Most roadies are getting 800 miles on a charge for their road Etap systems. For most, that's a couple months worth of riding. MTB mileage would be shorter as we shift more frequently, but even if it's 200 miles to a charge, that's a good month of riding for most people. Of all the etap bikes I've dealt with (a lot) I have yet to come across any issues with bugs, setup, programming....nuthin. Will this replace cables completely? Heck no. Will it replace cables on my bike? You Damn right. On another note, Anyone looking for a kidney?

Two Cyclists Arrested for Illegally Riding in Marin County
Meanwhile, (also in Marin) the dude who went all-out road rage on a cyclist, tried to run him off the road, and threatened to come after him with a shotgun went to jail! ......just kidding. His case got thrown out because he took an anger management course. Trespassing: you get arrested and fined. Reckless endangerment and assault: no biggie.

Ride More, Think Less - Opinion
But what's the resale value on that paint set? I bet the Corporate Machine of Big Art has some consiracy in which they drive sales by innovating and offering new products every couple years...maybe a different finish in the handles of those paintbrushes or a slightly longer bristle length. You definitely paid too much for them anyway. #watercolor4lyfe

Bike Standards—How Did We Get Here?—A Podcast
@excavator666: lobbying is how you get government to affect changes that will improve your future. Want more bike infrastructure? Someone has to rub elbows with politicians. SRAM hire lobbyists. Ditto Shimano. Ditto Trek, Soecialized, Giant, QBP, cannondale, just to list the ones I've heard of specifically. They're the ones putting money down in an effort to make biking more accessible. Is it out of goodness of their heart? Nah, it's for the future of their business. That doesn't mean it makes them the devil.

Felt Bicycles Joins the Direct Sales Movement
My thoughts as well. I work at a shop that sells (among other things) Felt. We're a pretty big account for them, but heard nothing. It reminds me too much of what Raleigh/ Accell NA recently did.
