Patrol's New 29er Trail Bike - Interbike 2017
I am pretty sure there will be a C&D order from Transition soon. Maybe even from Specialized (just because they're assholes).

Yup, once you go Absolute Black, you never go back (except to the free clinic).

Abi's Lessons From Crankworx - Stretching
Why can't I look good when I stretch like that? I look like mangled roadkill.

KindShock Re-boots Entire LEV Dropper Post Line - Eurobike 2017
Are you torqueing the seatclamp to spec? And with that, are the specs on KS's instructions and your frame the same? If not, go with the lower of the two, and torque about 0.2 less than spec (if it says 6.0 Nm, torque to 5.8). Or get another brand that has better reliability :)

Manon Carpenter Retires from DH Racing
@Boardlife69: haha good one. And I have no comeback for that one (and I'm usually good with comebacks). Maybe I have a concussion.

Manon Carpenter Retires from DH Racing
@Krzymndyd: Wow dude, thanks for sharing. Every sport has their risks--You can crash in a mountain bike, get hit by a car in a road bike, get shanked at a basketball game (I live in a bad neighborhood). The will to live is strong in smart people. Unfortunately, it's not there for others. Some risks just aren't worth it. Btw, can you downgrade to easier climbs? Kinda like going from DH to Enduro or even XC?

Manon Carpenter Retires from DH Racing
@metaam: Mine was just last month, at a super easy trail too (Will Rogers State park). Front tire washed out, hit the ground head first and then scraped a bit of my face and cracked my helmet. I'm actually wondering if I passed out for a while.

Manon Carpenter Retires from DH Racing
@Racer951: To add to your point, Gwin was doing a track walk a few years ago and someone said something about one of the turns being pretty easy to do. Then Gwin says something like "yeah, but try doing it at high speed."

Yeah dude, I'm interested in your story too. Did you fall, almost fell, or just realized you're doing something outrageously dangerous?

It's gotta be that crash at Fort William that shook her resolve. Just like Myriam Nicole avoiding that last gap at MSA because of a crash (couldn't find video of that one though--anybody have it?). Good luck Manon, and thank you for some exciting races. Hope you still stay in the industry somehow.
