Review: North Shore Racks NSR-6
@allsk8sno: Yep, I had a NS6, and after all my fork crowns were polished and bikes are so close to each other that I've had pedal pins rub paint down to metal on chainstays, I had enough. The good thing is that I sold it for the same price I paid for it. My Evil didn't fit in it, and my Maiden with a BOS fork didn't fit either. Enter RECON RACK for the win! No issues whatsoever. Bikes will never touch, fits any headtube or fork, and solid as hell. I like supporting a one-man band too. @notdentist: Fork bushings? There can't be much if any movement while its on the rack to wear them out. You're probably replacing them when you do yearly maintenance anyway, I know I am. Bushings are cheap and easy to replace, worn to metal fork crowns, not so much. Paint worn fork crowns affect resale value also. If you are looking at one of the big racks, you might as well go full-hog and get a 6 bike rack over a 4, you'll use it. It's not like you'll end up getting 6 bike later, so just do it right from the start, you won't regret it.

Check Out: New Flannels, Gloves, Tire Inserts, Goggles, & More
@mountainsofsussex: I call it "The North Face Fit". To get adequate sleeve and pant length, one must go to at least one size larger than what I would wear to properly fit. TNF makes their apparel to fit the average sedentary human. They have a couple of pieces that are a slim fit, but the majority of their clothes would fit F@t B@st@rd.

Must Watch: Olivier Cuvet Sends the Dave Watson Tour de France Road Gap in 'Arcadia'
Hey, hey, hey now! I think what you meant to say was “Watson’s bike was THE shit!” Foes Fly was cutting edge free ride in 2004.

Slack Randoms: The New Tony Ellsworth Bike is Very Different
Hmmmm...loved my Stratos S8 from back in the day! Had it in a 2001 Rocky Mountain RM7 with double rings and a bash guard that was my daily driver for everything! Long XC rides, Moab (full loops on the Slickrock Trail). My how times have changed. Shakes cane also!

Bike, Surfer, Powder, & Snowboarder Magazines Shut Down
Dang! I hate to see this too. I think I've been a subscriber since the beginning. I hate to see mags drop out. RIP Bike and Decline. I never did find out where any of the Decline people went to. Does anybody know? You would think that this being a fairly small industry and working at a mag being a very specific talent, that another mag or site would pick them up. Bike got thinner and thinner every issue, so it doesn't surprise me. I would love to see an MTB mag on the same level as Racer X Illustrated for moto. There is just something about reserving content for you print subscribers, and having a good quality paper mag in your hand while taking care of business on the sh*tter. Losing another magazine doesn't help any of us, whether you subscribed or not. I always figured that for less than $20 per year (that's one cheap meal), I could get the print version. I'm sure the staff at Bike are on here, I'd love to see where they end up if the whole thing goes down, but hopefully they keep their jobs via the website, and we get another "Pinkbike"!

Bike Checks: Comparing Jesse Melamed & Remi Gauvin's Rocky Mountain Altitudes - EWS Pietra Ligure 2020
The BIG question is: is ALN racing this weekend or not? Too late to change my team anyway.

Must Watch: Tom Van Steenbergen Hits 3 World Firsts in 'Wild West'
I was thinking the same thing. I suppose their actual bikes are handbuilt by another major brand, but I just don't get the "why"? It's not like anybody that knows who the VanSteezeburgen boys are, is going out looking to buy a Hyper at Mall-Mart. I absolutely appreciate that Hyper has these guys on the payroll, I just don't know where it's going. If the brand steps up and makes true LBS quality bikes, then great, it makes sense. Until then, I just don't get it. Whatever it is, keep paying the boys, they deserve it.
