The Latest Tech From the Mont Sainte Anne DH World Cup - Does Weight Matter?
I wasn't going to comment, as Henry's comments were obviously tongue-in-cheek... but it's been kinda bouncing around in my head for a bit. The thing is, I can't quite understand why Henry would want to go around poking the nationalist hornets nest? As a newcomer to Canada, especially someone who lives (I think) on the west coast, you could be cut a little slack for it. But coming from a Brit, (you know, the colonists and colonialists) it kinda sticks in your craw if you are a francophone. I'm not upset or angry (and who cares if I am), but just a friendly word of advice and maybe be a bit more... aware [or maybe sensitive?], of what you're saying, to whom, and where you are when you do? just sayin'

Police Searching for Mountain Biker In Connection to Assault On Woman in Her 60s in Devon, England
FFS, police haven't even spoken to this guy to determine his side of the story. Calling it an assault based on only the person who was hurt's testimony is pretty freakin' weak. Which of Newton's laws says every action has an equal and opposite reaction? Maybe this lady tried to push him off his bike but only managed to push herself back, trip and fall over. I'm not saying this is what happened, but its not impossible. IMO, this is a pretty weak attempt at policing, let alone journalism... The fact three other people have complained about the same guy is irrelevant... there could easily be a local dispute between dog-walkers and riders that we're not aware of, and they're seizing on the opportunity to create momentum...

Video: Nik Nestoroff & Chris Grice's Course Preview for the US National Champs DH
maybe the video is deceiving, but it looks really smooth. like it could be ridden (not as fast obviously) on a trail bike...?

Review: The 155mm Revel Rail 29 Wants More Uphill
great review for sure, and definitely a very interesting bike. my problem is translating this for someone (me) who weighs a solid 70lbs more than the reviewer... will all of those qualities still hold true?

Feedback Sports Introduces More Robust Pro Mechanic HD Repair Stand
Pinkbike: if you're posting a news release, why don't you let them post a link to their website? Would be easier to click on a link than have to look it up, and then click on the search result...

Opinion: Be More Like Chris
@MT36: Agree 100%. I got lucky in that my oldest likes the sport. Finding time to ride is tough though. I kinda thought my youngest wasn't going to be into it, but he totally surprised me this year when he asked to ride. And we had a great time. I'm not going to pressure them either way, but I think the secret is to follow their lead and to keep it fun... and even if they're not as passionate about it as I am, it's still awesome to get out when we do...

Opinion: Be More Like Chris
This is sort of where I'm at now. Just the other day I was explaining to my wife that I think my days of "progressing" are over and I may focus on riding with my kids more, now that they are 9 and 11 and both seem to enjoy riding with me (though not with each other!). I broke my back last year riding at MSA and required spinal fusion on one of the lower thoracic vertebra - I can't quite remember which one anymore. Also broke three ribs and my coracoid process. It's been a pretty long recovery, and at first my goal was to get back to where I was before the accident: gently progressing to bigger and bigger jumps, playing on my dirt jumper at the indoor bike park and generally riding gnarlier lines. But my progress hasn't been as quick as I'd wanted. Reading about other professional athletes who have been through similar injuries (Bulldog and Jess Blewitt come to mind), and who have recovered to their full potential is a double edged sword - on the one hand it's inspirational, on the other hand it's hard not to wonder "why am I not recovering as well as they did"? But now that I've started to ride with my kids more, I'm realizing it's just as rewarding - if not more, and I enjoy it just as much. It's like a new chapter, and getting to watch them progress and love this activity as much as I do is pretty awesome. Who knows, maybe in a few more months or years I'll be sending it with them at the bike park again. But for the time being, I'm enjoying the ride that I have!

Video: Shakedown Raw & Interviews from EWS Petzen-Jamnica 2022
Re the shakedown raw video... please try filming something other than people riding berms. I think the only person that makes berms exciting is Vinny T ( you're doing the riders a disservice by filming them there... rocky technical sections are where they shine, imo.

Shimano AM7 Shoes - Review
PSA and FWIW, I've had this very model since 2018. It's now 2022 and the shoe has been updated. again. I really liked my 2018s and wanted to replace them with the new ones. I found an LBS that had them in stock so went to buy them there, figuring I could try them on before buying just in case the sizing changed. And it did. The new ones are longer. I had a 44 in these, and the 44 on the 2022 version is at least a half size up, maybe even more. So too big. They didn't have the 43 in stock, but if I had to guess, I'd say they're probably too small. So I'm not sure what to do now... damn this stupid supply chain disruption!
