Video: How To Actually Learn New Skills On Your Bike With Ben Cathro - How To Bike Episode 1
@DylanH93: My favorite are the stories from the other skaters of the era when street skating was blowing up. They would be on road trips and Rodney would just run away from the team and they would find him practicing kick flips in a parking garage after a few hours of him missing. Guy had a special brain for sure- reminds me a lot of Alex Honnold. However, I do think he had such a technical brain that it was able to break down how he learned things. This talk he gave is so cool for his learning theory and how we can all learn things better- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uEm-wjPkegE

Made me think of the Rodney Mullen video where he described his learning process for some of the ridiculous skate tricks he created. He said he would break it down into progressions- or individual skills that made up the trick. He would then start one skill at a time and do it 10,000 times until it felt natural- he would then combine and move on to the next skill. I really liked his description as when you watch him you think he is just supernatural or a phenom (which he likely is) but when you hear his process it reminds you that you may never skate like Rodney but anyone can build basics over multiple practices and then combine and build from those. All about growth and insightful repetition! People bring attributes (like Rodney having the mental rigidity?/drive/brain to do tricks 10,000 times!) and genetics to it that may make it easier to learn but we all have to learn and we can all improve.

Final Results: Downhill - Crankworx Innsbruck 2021
I actually think Needles does a stellar job and would love to see him do some WC commentary. I think it was an impossible task to try to describe what was happening based on being able to see like 5% of the course.

Spotted: SRAM is Testing Something (But It's Probably Not a Dual Caliper Brake)
Ahhh good ol' biking tribalism. Pick a brake brand and be a D about it. I'm a bigger rider @ 6'0 and roughly 200lbs. I currently have four bikes (three with disc brakes as the fourth is a BMX). Also I do the work on my wife's and children's bikes who all have Shimano. I have Codes on my primary trail ripper and four piston Deores on my Gravel grinder/commuter/hipster hardtail. Previously rode XT and XTR for years. There was a time when absolutely I couldn't swap out a Sram/Avid brake fast enough. The "Taperbore" years for Sram/Avid were the worst IMO. Hated those finicky things. However, I am currently running Codes. They are great brakes. I intended to swap them but on the advice of a friend left them and gave them a go. While I know bikers love hyperbole and have a hard time accepting that the range of performance we are currently arguing about is tiny compared to the arguments we were having ten or fifteen years ago where some key components did genuinely suck- I would argue the chasm between Sram and Shimano is not as wide as fan boys/girls/[insert pronoun here] for either faction would argue. Both are great brakes with different feels and nuances- both will stop you, allow you to perform, will have blips in quality depending on the exact equipment on your bike...or at least that's my opinion. I loved Shimano and still do but have zero issues with my Codes and am now a fan.
