Tech Randoms: Nove Mesto XC World Cup 2022
I'm pretty sure I'd endo/OTB/scorpion in 5 seconds with those crazy low bars... BUT I really would like to spend some time on one of these WC XC rigs... they look awesome! Back in the day XC was the thing everyone aspired to. Which made more sense when there was just one "mountain bike" that did everything! :)

Review: Yakima's $849 StageTwo Hitch Rack
Very funny... OK I'll admit I put the front wheel in first and I can see that's why I had to hold the bike to go to the other side. That is what I'm used to doing. It still didn't feel very secure and I had to go back and fourth to tighten it and then saw the whole dam bike was shifted to one side which is an issue with long bikes. Maybe you get used to how tight it needs to be on the one side to know how much to close it before you go to the other side and close it and it tightens JUST RIGHT...? But I still seemed to have side to side play after redoing it all. I four wheel all the time with my bike on the Kuat and there is almost zero play from the bike in the rack. The only movement is the frame from the suspension going up and down... BUT I will accept that it all could have been user error... :)

Review: Yakima's $849 StageTwo Hitch Rack
It's funny that everyone loves one ups, and everyone is copying that style of rack now. But I like this style more with the cinch and strap better. (limited 1 up use, never owned one. But you do the one side of a one up and have to hold onto the bike as you walk over to the other side to raise up that side up and then back and forth sometimes to balance the two sides so the cinch is equal and my XL long wheel base bike is centered in the rack) VS this style of rack, just like the original Kuats you cinch the front wheel "down" past the inner curve of the tire. Once you do that it's set/done/in and you don't have to hold the bike anymore. You do have to walk over and strap the back tire to keep it from getting loose. But your done at that point instead of the back and forth. I know there are other benefits of the one up style. But in my day to day they don't matter? Until my current Kuat dies the only thing that would get me to buy a new rack is a Kuat cinch and strap rack with the swing out built into it like the rocky mount one. You can get the swing adapters, but they make the whole rack stick further off the back of your vehicle which I don't want.

Ground Keeper Introduces Custom Decal Builder for Fox, RockShox & Marzocchi
I think it's pretty funny that an article about "custom graphics" is using what looks like a regular white OEM fox shock sticker on it in the article HERO image on the main page. :) I admit, I still clicked to understand why, and when you see a larger pic you can see why it's "custom". But I think ANY of the other pics in this article would have made a better hero shot for the main page.

You just gotta manspread enough during the post ride chill to get enough airflow to dry things out and your good to go.

@baxterbike: Sorry, but BMX background > TRI background. And the BMX background knowledge base clearly goes with black skinny jeans, tighty whitey's and never changing out of them.

Review: ION's Wet Weather Shelter Jersey and Scrub Pants
But then you could just wear a regular shirt and black jeans so you can show your cred with your BMX Backgound....

Review: ION's Wet Weather Shelter Jersey and Scrub Pants
Was gonna say this is the first pant they've reviewed that looked long enough. Still gonna ride up with wear/on the bike. But at least they don't look stupid walking around at the coffee shop afterwards... :) Usually I find they only make pants for Costanza. Big and short. OR Kramer. Tall and Skinny. I'm BOTH! and I can never get them to fit my waist AND be long enough...
