Catching Up With Hans Rey
Legend. The interview on inside line podcast was a good listen if you're into that. And I'll always enjoy the Himalayan video to that lake filled with human bones. What an exceptional ambassador for the sport

For sale is a good condition, recently serviced/assembled Norco Aurum DH bike. The bike is built with good condition new and used parts, and should be a great ride for someone looking to not spend a ton for a functional dh bike. The frame is used and shows it, but there aren't any dents or cracks. There are paint nicks from riding on the downtube, from chainslap on the chainstay, and the standard scuffs and scratches that come with riding. The bearings are all smooth and there's no play. The shock is a Cane Creek Double Barrel coil, with a 400 lbs spring The fork is a Rockshox Boxxer World Cup spinning on a Cane Creek Angleset Brakes are Shimano XT with IceTech pads with 200/180 rotors. They have just been bled DT is Shimano XT with an 11-27 cassette Cranks are 165mm Truvativ Descendent with a 32t Wolf Tooth NarrowWide chainring. The chainguide is an MRP G2. There shouldn't be an issue of dropping chains. Wheels are professionally built and never ridden. DT Swiss FR570 on Phil Wood spokes with DT Swiss 240 front hub and Speed Tuned rear hub. Tires are Michelin Tubeless compatible 2.5 front and Kenda Excavator Stickee 2.5 rear. Straightline Stem and Raceface Atlas bars with Lizard Skins Peaty lockon Grips Ask any questions. Thanks for looking

Pinkbike Poll - Are World Cup Racers Right To Complain About Tracks?
Most professional racing has a riders meeting prior to qualifying where safety concerns are discussed. Just because MTBing is an extreme sport doesn't change the fact that racers should feel safe(?) taking it to the limit. I remember the the film Senna, Ayrton has a grievance with Ecclestone about a tire wall that launched a car instead of stopping it. Or, another example of good safety is the riders' option at rampage to delay or skip dropping in. It's purely subjective, but a few buckets of gravel at fort bill would have likely appeased most. Track managers should be accountable to riders' concerns.

For sale is a size large carbon fiber Troy frame. Included are the stock rear shock, headset, seatpost, axle, and cable routing doors. Has only 6 months of riding on it. There's a scratch on the top tube but overall it's in great shape. The shock was only used on the first 2 rides then swapped out. It's a Rockshox Monarch RC3 debonair. The headset has recently replaced bearings and is good to go. The seatpost works well. It is a 150mm travel reverb, with the left/under lever. It's been bled recently and has been very consistent. Not shown in the photos are all new cable routing doors. Bearings are all recently replaced, with a new rear thru axle. I'm happy to sell without the seatpost. Thanks for looking.

Devinci Django Carbon 29 X01 - Review
@vernonfelton: Thx, I've read that article. Both articles are great, but these bikes are so similar that I'm left questioning 'why do these both exist?' and 'what is each bikes' purpose?' Is Django the line picker and Marshall for plowing? How was the Django on DoubleDown? Which model would you buy if it were your money, which would you take racing, and which would you rather ride? Does one inspire more creative metaphors?

The Tuesday Tune Ep 13: Fox's "Budget" Fit Grip Damper
Fox has an upgrade program offered through bike shops at $100 retail for grip damper and $165 for a fit4. It's a good deal! You do need to supply serial numbers of the fork.

Pinkbike Poll: Which Major Component is the Least Evolved Part of a Mountain Bike?
I'm ready for tubeless valves to update past presta style valves. With rims being wide enough, even on road bikes, there's little reason to continue with tiny cores that limit air flow and gum up too soon with sealant. We ought to have an inflation process that doesn't require removing cores and unthreading with the tip or dust caps
