Bjorn Bikes Introduces Recycled Grips
This is unrelated to grips but related to recycling. When I used to live in BC, Canada, MEC would take all tubes/tires for recycling. Now I live in Southern California and I called around trying to figure out where to take used tires for recycling and basically struck out. Car tire places won't take them as they don't get any credit for them. I came away with the impression that all the spent bike tires are going in the landfill. Does anyone know of a place to responsibly dispose of used tires in SoCal?

Review: Rotor 2INpower MTB Crank
When I was 22 I ruptured my patellar ligament snowboarding (avulsion fracture of the tibial tuberosity) and did the ACL at the same time. Despite years of physio and weight training, and returning to all the sports I did previously, I was never able to get back to symmetry and over the 2+ decades since, that asymmetry has affected me. It’s a constant battle to try and keep the left leg as strong as the right. This then affected my hips and spine as my pelvis isn’t level. So I am one of the outliers who sees the value in this. It’s probably too late for me to rise out of middle-aged mediocrity but if this technology was available to me when I was still in my 20’s I think it would be worth every penny to get back symmetry.

Pinkbike Poll: How Often Do You Drive to Your Local Trails?
Exactly! That is the option I was looking for. If you ever end up having trails within 2-3 minutes from your door you’ll find after a few years you want to get in your car to switch things up.

Pinkbike Poll: If Every Ride Was Solo, Would You Still Mountain Bike?
I love riding solo. I love riding with my buddies. I love riding.

MicroSHIFT's New 10-Speed Advent X Drivetrain is Only $167 - Pond Beaver 2020 (Updated with Video)
Wow this looks really cool. I've been using the Oneup 47T with XT 1x11 cassette but just the Oneup expander cog is more than half the price of this entire drivetrain. I will definitely be giving this drivetrain a try next time mine is worn to the point of needing replacing.

Throwback Thursday: Hans Rey's 1995 GT vs. His Current Ride in 'We've Come a Long Way' Video
@cuban-b: sometimes sarcasm does not convey well. I just found it interesting to see this story as I'd never met or seen this longtime legend of our sport before last week, and he and his buddy were both on E's. The E-haters will eventually realize that what they hate is the lack of etiquette of some of those newer to our sport on E-bikes, not the bikes themselves. Cheers.

Throwback Thursday: Hans Rey's 1995 GT vs. His Current Ride in 'We've Come a Long Way' Video
@cuban-b: Last Friday in a full on downpour rain, I saw Hans Rey and he was riding a GT bicyclE with a motor. And you actually have to pedal the ones with motors too in case you haven't tried one yet. Full disclaimer, I have an E-bike too but I was out on my hardtail in the rain due to my hatred of maintenance.

Video: Clipless vs. Flat Pedals - The Pros and Cons of Both
@F22: funny that’s what it was, a Tallboy that I’ve always run clips and xc cleat shoes but a pedal bearing failed on me so I put flats on it just for fun until I fix it.

Video: Clipless vs. Flat Pedals - The Pros and Cons of Both
I’m always switching back and forth and when going from clips to flats the place I really notice it is when you are going fast but approaching a climb where you need to gear way down to try and keep a steady cadence for a short punchy climb - just happened to me two days ago and both feet almost came off the pedals. Even though I’ve been riding both for decades it still amazes me how I pick up bad habits from clips that don’t manifest until I go back on flats. That’s what keeps me switching back and forth.
