Pinkbike Poll: What Factors Influence Your Bike Purchasing Decisions?
@mikealive: This is the problem though. It's a workaround to a system that works perfectly well. Manufacturers can bang on about tolerances, clearance, weight, stiffness etc. all they like, but everybody knows it's first and foremost a cost savings exercise. Thank you Nukeproof, GG, Knolly and others that stick with it.

Starling's Environmental Impact Report Finds Carbon Produces 16x More CO2 Than Steel
@fartymarty: would be a better representation of where your country actually stands. Either way, I find it baffling that this argument is still even being had, despite overwhelming evidence about the harms done by climate change. Then again, some people still believe the earth is flat.

First Look: POC Launches Fully-Recyclable Helmet
Surely the fact that it IS recyclable is a step in the right direction. I fully get your point, but not everyone lives in the US. At least in countries that offer a realistic option for recycling this, you now can, rather than throwing your helmet in landfill. Now we just need to get used to the looks, but given the way cycling clothing generally looks to outsiders, that shouldn’t be an insurmountable challenge.

Trek Features in TIME's List of the Most Influential Companies in 2022
@Ridgeline5: There are political views and political views. Jackson hole was hosting people with rather fringe opinions (Jewish space lasers anyone?), so it's understandable to consider your alliances. Apart from that fact, I would hardly call the resort an example of sustainable development as they have long since jumped on the massive development bandwagon to cash in now and worry about the future later.

Review: POC's New Otocon Full Face Helmet Is Packed With Tech
@vid1998: It's only good to find your body. If you go off piste, you should be aiming to be with three at a minimum, all have transceivers, shovels, probes and if you have the cash, an airbag. Additionally, you should be trained to use your transceiver. In an avalanche, unless you hit a rock and die instantly, the recovery survival rate within the first 15 minutes is 95%. After that, it drops dramatically to 50%. After 45 minutes, there's little hope you'd be dug out alive. The Recco systems and equipment needed to retrieve someone makes it basically impossible to find someone within 45 minutes. I've had avalanche training and unfortunately been dug out once, thanks to my transceiver and trained partners. The worst thing is that the Recco system gives uninformed skiers a false sense of security. It should be forbidden from being advertised as something that can save your life in an avalanche.
