Burning Question: Is Super Boost 157 Spacing Going to Become the New Standard?
Surprise Surprise, no one at a major bike or component company wants to say "what a bunch of crap" then look like a fool down the road when 157 becomes the main standard regardless of whether it's beneficial or not. I'd love to hear what these guys really think off the record.

American Tariffs on Chinese-Made Goods Threaten to Increase Prices for the US Bike Industry
Same people that would cry that every American should earn a "living wage" will decry the tariffs and increase in prices for their toys. In some cases it's ignorance, in other cases hypocrisy and some even blatant political opportunism. Just watch.

Destination Showcase: Killington, Vermont
I've been to both Killington to ride the chairs, and Stowe to pedal up the local trails in the past month. I don't know how many tickets it takes to turn a profit, but Killington was practically empty. Didn't have to wait more than one gondola all day long on a Saturday. There just isn't much of a tourist scene in Killington over the summer. Stowe on the other hand, no lift assisted riding, but the tourist scene is crazy. Tons of mt. bikers, tons of hikers, tons of people just chilling and doing all sorts of touristy things. Seems like they could make a good run at lift assist if they wanted.

Destination Showcase: Killington, Vermont
I was there a month or so ago, no need to worry. Zero lift lines all day long on a Saturday.

Video: Specialized's Epic EVO Release Video Is Cheeseball & Great
A few months ago we got “no more proprietary BS” from the company who invented proprietary BS, now we get “prepare to have your minds blown by our incredible ingenuity” from a company that waits around for the little guy to spearhead change then copies them.

Track Walk Photo Epic: Marching into Battle - Val di Sole World Cup 2018
I looked around but couldn't find out what's up with Dakotah Norton. Crash looked bad but never heard any follow up on his condition.

Must Watch: Precision Drone Piloting Makes Riding Look Unbelievable
@Waldon83: No coffee at the start, no beer at the end. What's up with that? (damn you sewer-rat, typed to slow!)

Review: NX Eagle - SRAM's New Affordable 12-Speed Drivetrain
Would be nice if they offer the XD/splined option on all their cassettes.

Review: Crankbrothers' Klic Digital Floor Pump + Burst Tank
@SirHades: Just buy a small air tank and have the best of both. You can get them anywhere from 1/2 gallon up, two or three should be way bigger than you need. Put a couple fittings and hoses on it, fill it with air from your compressor or pump you already have and you are good to go for $75. edit, didn't see, tbev said the same thing

DH Fantasy League Updated for Round 3 - Leogang World Cup DH 2018
I get your point, but everybody can change riders and pays the same price so it's not an issue of "fairness" to people playing. What might be interesting is letting people pay the "original" price they paid for a rider all season long as long as they keep him/her on their team, even if their price goes up.
