Injured Rider Unsuccessful in Lawsuit Against Whistler Bike Park
@dthomp325: I understand you said less worry, not no worry. I guess I feel you should never let a lift ticket influence how safe you perceive a trail to be. There's just too many variables. Hikers also commonly love to not see signs saying downhill only, no hiking.

Injured Rider Unsuccessful in Lawsuit Against Whistler Bike Park
@dthomp325: I've personally seen a few trees fall in the middle of the day. I totally agree that safety and maintenance are part of what you pay for....however, I feel whenever you ride a bike you should expect the unexpected, and the resort is not liable for natural causes. Anyone who's ridden long enough, knows when you let your guard down is when you really get hurt. I've even had a deer run in front of me at a resort. Should I sue the resort for a deer? Trail maintenence and safety are always in as much control by mother nature as the resort. It's when negligence comes into it there's a proper case. Otherwise its just a rider assumed liability sport called riding a bike in the mountains. Riding a bike anywhere can kill you. Relaxing and assuming the trails are always obstacle free is not realistic for a sport in the mountains. And you know what they say about assumptions....

@dthomp325: if a tree falls in the woods, does an alarm bell sound in the trail maintenance worker's cabin? Downed trees, really? That shit is unpredictable, unless we remove all trees within range of the trail.

On Top of His Game(s) - The Ryan Nyquist Interview
You get me more stoked to watch slopestyle than anyone. And your riding at Malaga vans cup this year was insane! Going huge on the BMX....I wondered if mtb helped you keep going bigger on the little wheels? Way to inspire people to keep charging. I think you've got the most impressive ongoing riding career out of anyone. I go out and keep scaring myself because of people like Mr Nyquist. Dude is the ultimate bad ass biker!

Giant Trance Advanced 1 - Review
I find bar width to also be a blend of how fast you like the bike to go edge to edge, much like the difference in wide vs regular waist snowboards. Narrower you can switch edge to edge faster, but is lessential stable perpendicular to the ground. Wider is super stable, but sloweric edge to edge. Also worth noting, for the guy rocking 800s, is in many areas with trees, it's not worth the risk of broken pinky fingers. If you live I a desert, go for it. Switchbacks, chicane's, and trees warrant narrower bars regardless of shoulder size. But shoulder size should be one of the main considerations, just not the only one.

Shimano Announces New Gravity-Oriented Pedals, Shoes
If you use a shoe with a skate style sole like 510 clip less, you can have the feel of flats while clipped, ie no radical pivoting feel like trail/xc options. You will be clipped, but get the feedback from the pedal much like flats. You can feel the platform under you, instead of a center pivot floating feel.

@jlobes: the cone bearing system is way more reliable than sealed cartridge bearings, as long as you have a mechanic adjust them for you right when they develop play the first time. The bearings are smooth, and better than any cartridge. Sealed bearings are a joke compared to shimano cone bearings when it comes to quality and durability. Why or how did you have problems? Mine were flawless, but I did have a pair I neglected that got a little loose.
