Anton Cooper Criticizes Albstadt World Cup Course for Lack of Technicality
Yeah, so, I don't agree with the course in the photos. I wouldn't even call that a flow trail but rather a bike path. That being said, I would like to see what some people in these comments are calling technical trail. In my geographic region, the people who chastise "flow trail" and say trails need to me more "tech" are usually the same people who say super tech trail is better because it is slower and you don't get hurt as bad when you fall. At the end of the day, the fun part of riding, IMHO, is going fast. Now...the trail can be buffed out with rollers that can be doubled/ tripled or can be root/ rock infested with some natural gap options...but at the end of the day...all trail needs to flow if going fast is how you have fun on a bike. As for the person who said the WC tracks are becoming "flow" trails or "Bike park trails"...the elite racers just make it look like that in video. I've ridden at least 2 recent WC tracks and they all flow so they can be ridden at speed but I bet 80% of the people on here demanding more tech trails would be over their heads on some of the rock/ root sections on these courses.

Now Finished: Ask Me Anything with Trauma & Orthopaedic Doctor Henry Turner
@hcturner: Thanks for taking the time to respond! I especially appreciate it because the ask me anything had ended already so...I appreciate you responding during your personal time. I was probably going to have it checked out again at the end of this year in the event it needs another surgery or something...so I can be off the bike in the off season.

Race Report: Perfect Conditions for the Downhill Southeast Series at Windrock
Probably for rock * (star) status... I was at the race and the announcer was joking that the back flip was good for a -20 second bonus...haha...so...yeah I am thinking that is why they put an * next to his name. Pretty rad to witness that in a race run...and still with a pretty smokin' fast time.

Now Finished: Ask Me Anything with Trauma & Orthopaedic Doctor Henry Turner
Question about my knee. Back in 2013 I dislocated my knee tearing my ACL, MCL, and Meniscus. Took about 3 years post surgery for it to come back to about 99%. In March 2018, I crashed pretty hard again on said knee. I thought I dislocated it again but I could still walk, ride, and the knee was overall stable. No locking or slipping. However, I couldn't bend my knee past 90° for about 3 weeks and there definitely was nerve damage, bruising, and swelling. Now, about a year later, I still have MILD pain in the knee after strenuous activity (goes away in about a day) but the feeling in the front of the knee has returned to about back to normal. It's not preventing me from doing normal activities like riding, walking, lifting, etc...so I am hesitant to get it checked out...but should I? Based on the symptoms immediately post injury, I THINK...my knee pad dislocated my knee cap and it relocated itself during the crash. What do you think?

Suspension, Anti-Lock Brakes, and a Dropper Post Cable Kit - Taipei Cycle Show 2019
Hmmm...I wouldn't mind trying the anti lock brake system just to see what it is all about. Just wonder if it would allow a rider to carry speed all the way up to the turn and then brake in the turn if you need to. Maybe just one in the back? I know ABS on street bikes all but idiot proofed cornering to the point where...I don't think they can be used in sanctioned races...but I could be wrong on that. Could be nobody uses them because of weight or something.

Atherton Bikes Confirm Team Details & Show Full Bike For the First Time
I'm curious to see how the frame holds up. I'm sure Gee and Rachel tested the pi$$ out of it but it's lugged carbon. Pretty rare to see that now a days. Cannondale used to do lugged carbon road bikes but there was a window in the lug to mechanically lock the tube in place as well as bond it. I'm sure it's top secret but...I wonder how they are bonding this thing together.

Industry Insider: The US Government Shutdown is Impacting Trail Building and Maintenance
@Warburrito: huh? Not sure how to take that response so...I guess literally? If you have asthma issues in the winter I wouldn't even bother with plus sized tires. Great solution for a quiver killer if you want to ride year round but traditional width tires in the spring/summer/fall months are much better and roll faster imo. With regard to the 26/27.5 thing...I've herd good feedback about mixed wheel sizes and cornering and it could be cool to try out. I would suggest 29/ 27.5 to get the better roll over but 26/27.5 would work too. Just avoid 26/29...it's been done and I've read it doesn't work all that well because the wheel sizes are too different. Link how it works out!

@Warburrito: please give me some specific examples. Because you pretty much just described exactly what Ann Coulter, Sean Haninity, and Tucker Carlson do on a daily basis.

@Warburrito: please move to said island. Anyone who refers to someone as a sheep because they don't subscribe to their wild right wing conspiracy theories...please move. Otherwise, please explain to the 50% (it's likely higher than that) why we are all sheep by your definition.
