Desperately seeking out remaining pockets of getting rad while bones and joints fall apart after 40+ years of mis-use and damage.

Photo Epic: Whip-Off - Crankworx Les Gets 2018
Sorry but photogs need better angles or proximity or art direction from the WBP round. There is much less excitement, drama, or motion in these shots.

Geoff Kabush's Race Diary from Carson City Off-Road
Great write-ups, detailed race data, and equipment reviews. Hey Yeti, this is a good sponsorship/partnership.

Revisiting the Birthplace of Shimano
Thanks for the nice write-up and photos RC. I'd give a body part to work in R&D at this place. Sounds like XTR and perhaps Dura-Ace or perhaps the Di2 stuff is made in Japan at this plant? Is this common to their other industries as well (fishing, rowing)? How many people worked at this facility? It reminds me of the showcase 'factories' the big German automakers built where they do final assembly and presentation of the high-end cars.

Ask Pinkbike: Bikes for Smaller Riders, & Saddle Suggestions
@bmck: What that article says is DW and Hughes do the engineering/angles/lengths/where the tubes go. Meaning, they are the people who decide how to make the bike behave in a given way. Lo is an industrial designer so there's a 3D aspect (probably in addition to the 2D stuff) but that doesn't typically include ride characteristics. Agree 100% sizing is a personal decision. Just pointing out it doesn't follow that just because someone is 5'1" and works in design at a bike company that the bikes will - in brianpark's words - "work well for the vertically challenged" in the intended terrain. Other than shaping the top tube in an artful way to create swayback-donkey standover height.

Ask Pinkbike: Bikes for Smaller Riders, & Saddle Suggestions
@bmck: keep in mind the 5'1" person in this article isn't a bicycle engineer or suspension designer. She's a partner, which means her input into feel or ride characteristics will carry a lot of weight. "Designed for herself" in this case means frame surface styling. Does video exist of this rider attacking suitable long-travel terrain in a manner that would satisfy PB readers?

@brianpark: does there exist video proof of Roxy riding her Ripmo on challenging Santa Cruz terrain?

Rachel Atherton's Race Winning Trek Session - Leogang World Cup DH 2018
That's a good guess. I first thought 'muscles' then 'feathers' but some insect wing might look like that up close. Plus the iridescent sheen of the silver is bug-like. Its a nice effect. The close-up of the down tube area does look a little sloppier though, with the TREK letters wrinkling over the silver effects. Good from far, far from good, but completely adequate for race photos.
