Video: Industry Nine Introduces Hydra & 101 Hubs in 'The New Phase'
Well, the title sets you up for different expectations, but it is a really well done marketing video with some great behind the scenes shots. Kudos to the creative team that worked on it.

Review: Michelin's Wild Enduro Tires Deliver Tons of Traction
@mikekazimer: The ones I posted about issues with tearing in dry conditions were Gum-X. Seems that these tires are a good option for soft/moist conditions, but in dry rocky stuff they get torn up way faster than maxxis compounds.

Review: Michelin's Wild Enduro Tires Deliver Tons of Traction
@endlessblockades: Palm canyon is definitely rugged terrain. I think dry/rocky stuff is a problem for this compound. Two of the knobs already looked like that after the first 7 mile day, which was pretty disappointing because I like the design of these tires. The ride was awesome though, especially the first part. Hopefully you get to do it. In the second half there is a lot of pedally stuff that slowly wears you down, so bring lots of water and snacks!

Review: Michelin's Wild Enduro Tires Deliver Tons of Traction
@endlessblockades: The 7 mile loop I did was on these trails https://www.trailforks.com/trails/goat-trails-outlet/ The next day I did this ride https://www.trailforks.com/trails/palm-canyon-epic/ After those two rides I took these photos of the rear tire, showing a few of the many deteriorating side knobs. https://www.pinkbike.com/u/silkyrhino/album/wild-enduro/ My normal riding is dry socal stuff and I get more than 450 miles out of a minion dhr in the rear before the side knobs start to look like that.

Review: Michelin's Wild Enduro Tires Deliver Tons of Traction
I was excited to try these. I finally found some in stock. After one 7 mile ride in dry desert conditions, a couple side knobs on the rear were ripping off. After less then 100 mi it was completely deteriorated and done. The front has held up better with the knobs being a bit beefier. I don't understand how Sam Hill even made it through a full ews weekend in dry conditions with these. Back to maxxis.

Review: Magura's MT7 Pro Brakes Are Ultra-Customizable
Other than the 1-finger lever... are these updated with any changes from the MT7 they were selling last year?

Video: KC Deane Takes on Jaws' Flowing Trails
I don't think there is much good riding on the Big Island. So much lava and private land. Maybe the locals know of a few gems?

Tire Makers Co-Develop an Inflatable Bladder System to Prevent Flat Tires
Jokes aside... the question would be: Is it better than existing solutions? It appears that most punctures and sidewall tears would not cause the tire to go flat. These type of flats still occur for many racers that are using cushcore or similar. It also provides rim protection like existing systems. It also eliminates messy tire sealant and all the fun that comes with it. Seems like an improvement on paper to me, however we need to know more about weight and ride quality.
