Postponed: Dual Speed & Style - Crankworx Les Gets 2018
1.: Flame away... I am a pussy and would never hit this shit. 2.: Do these "aspects" of the sport really have anything to do with mountain biking? After (over and over and over) seeing postponements for wind. Holy shit! - WOW. Yep, shit gets windy. Shocking in mountainous regions (where mountain biking occurs). 3.: If everyone's so in to it, why not just move it inside? Then we can all stare and drool like with every other "action sport" and we'll chug the beer (a few deep myself) and zombie out, as is the goal.

Replay: Dual Speed & Style - Crankworx Innsbruck 2018
I'm probably gonna catch hell for this, but I found it quite sad that Micayla took up the role of faceless question girl. How boring...

Review: NX Eagle - SRAM's New Affordable 12-Speed Drivetrain
@number44: I'm on this train, too. After buying a new hardtail frame I realized how truly bent my old derailleur was and figured I'd just go for something new. Cheap china narrow wide + SLX 11-46 upgrade kit and I'm set. After so many years of mountain biking, I've realized that the new stuff looks nice, but the trickle down is really where it's at.

Is this serious or tongue in cheek? It's so hard to say these days.. the rider says: ha ha, fun fun. The company says: MARKETING, PERCENTAGES, MONEY!

European Commission Announces Proposal For eMTBs to Require Third Party Insurance
Your country isn't even a part of Europe any more! Bullshit aside... you really need to see this from a broader perspective. I am a Canadian living in Germany. Mainland Europe is very far removed as far as culture (yep, even from merry old England) and thought process goes. I witness people on e-bikes daily, not only on trails but also on the street. They have ABSOLUTELY no idea what that boost gives them, and they ARE dangerous. At a trail center where people are getting shuttled (or in this case e-shuttlin'), or where we're talking about people that actually have learned bike control, I completely agree that we shouldn't worry about it and that a measure like this is unnecessary. The problem here is that it's the nature of such an article to mention no user groups or existing problems (or problem groups) and the fact is, Europe is pretty fucking big. E-Bike mountain bikers have never bothered me.. sure, I wish they'd give me a tow and because I'm so fat I get a little jealous. The fact of the matter is that the majority (your personal majority doesn't count!) are unskilled (and usually helmetless!) people, who have little to no experience. I can ride my trailbike flat out on pavement at around 25 km/h (28/10, don't care if yer faster, I'm a fatty). A comparison with a road bike is apples and oranges and also most skinny tired death machines are equipped with disc brakes and better shifting than ever before. Fact is... this "movement" is dangerous for all user groups. Those who purchase E-bikes and those who are surrounded by them. I'm not trying to dismiss your argument, but try to see it from a different point of view.

Spotted: New Shimano XTR
I'm just stoked for the trickle down on this... My SLX stuff today is really, really good (and cheap) even compared to my XT stuff from only a short time ago.
