CBD is Being Marketed at Mountain Bikers, What Does That Mean?
"CBD is one of the active cannabinoid compounds in the cannabis plant but it crucially doesn't have the psychoactive effects of the other main component, THC." - BORING.

Josh Bryceland & Squad Officially Form the 'Cannondale Sessions'
Many people here talk as if Cannondale is a new kid on the block. REMINDER: Cannondale has always been making good bikes. There's no any doubt if they're "capable" or not. Cool your boots.

Consortium to Buy Amer Sports for 5.2 Billion
@racerfacer: All these brands have a wide range of price tags. ENVE, doesn't - which is cool I guess.

Pinkbike Poll: How Much Does a Bike's Climbing Performance Matter to You?
What a STUPID poll that is. We have reached a point where we are asked if a bike should climb well or not. WTF.

Interview: Jared Graves Comments on Failed Drug Test
This "I firmly believe that this is the result of some kind of supplement or over the counter medicine contamination" is also a kind of conclusion. The problem when you have to defend yourself because you were tested positively using banned substances is that no one can be sure if you're honest or not. Yes, no one should jump to any conclusions. The only thing certain here is that these two athletes got busted, either they intentionally used these substances or not. Also, we should remind ourselves that these two athletes are surrounded by professionals, like nutritionists, personal trainers and so on. There's so much science around elite athletes nowadays that it doesn't make much sense if the athlete was not aware of the substances he/she was putting in their system - don't forget that these two substances are endurance boosters. It's complicated. No one should be a hater but at the same time if someone gets caught he/she should face the consequences. Also, let us remind ourselves the hate on every road cyclist that is caught using banned substances. We are ALL certain that he intentionally used the substance and that he should be banned and so on. I am not jumping to any conclusions but I am not falling that easy also.

Review: Fox 36 GRIP2 vs. RockShox Lyrik RC2 Fork
@Svinyard: this is a review about the FOX 36 fork. Not how Rude is setting up his fork and if others followed or not. That's irrelevant. And Sam is doing "pretty decent" and he's running a Lyrik. So what? What I'm saying is that depending on the site, opinions differ. Pinkbike goes with FOX. Enduro MTB went for the Lyrik. Does this mean that the reviewers here are more experienced? No. They just express their viewpoint. And that's that. Of course both are high end stuff. Who said the opposite? We (including my self) have become experts it seems.

Review: Fox 36 GRIP2 vs. RockShox Lyrik RC2 Fork
@freeridejerk888: have you ridden both then? Personally, no. I assume you neither. And I don't mind which is the winner - honestly. This is just a statement I made (I knew the outcome before even reading the Take. And it's not because it's better. It's what the reviewer think it's better. How come then the Enduro Magazine finds the Lyrik better? Is the reviewer there less experienced? It's an opinion. I stated that Pinkbike always finds FOX better. You cannot deny that and you cannot say "because it's better". Unless if you're sharing with us your valuable experience after trying both. If that's the case, I pass.
