Downhill Photo Epic: Short & Sweet - Sea Otter 2019
C'mon guys; not a single photo of Jill on track (1st in womens). No photos at all of Rae Morrison (3rd in womens) and Josh Carlson (2nd in mens). Pretty poor attempt I'm sorry to say...

Video: Zombie Rider
Amazing SFX makeup and great cinematography; props to the people involved! Wondered where the money came from, and then it turned out to be an ad for trek; now I know!

The Cutaway Special - Interbike 2018
Trek have also used foam sandwich in their carbon frames (remedy comes to mind), especially around the BB area.

The Arbr Saker - UK-Made Carbon Enduro Bike
I'm going to go out on a limb and say that the longer I look at it, the less I hate it; and yes at first it is quite a shock to the eyes!. Yes it's very different, but the whole point of going to CF construction is that you can make any shape that works, that supports the projected forces, without being constrained to making triangles out of tubes. Just take a step back and look at the current of 160mm carbon bikes from mainstream brands, and compare their appearance to a mountain bike from the mid 1990's; the differences are almost as striking. I definitely also see come cues from the Ibis mojo here, and if it works, who knows we may all be riding bikes that look like this in a few years time. Rearward axle path is also obviously coming back into vogue; I for one am happy about that, and the more the merrier. It is bloody expensive, but they're not planning on selling thousands of them, so there's a decent chance they'll get enough people with open minds (and maybe closed eyes!) to get on board and try it; if it rides well it'll be a winner. Built up it won't be more than about $10K, and you can pay that for a mass-produced bike from Spesh, SC, Yeti, among others. You don't get advancement by doing the same old thing over and over again!

Hope: New Rims, Stems and More - Core Bike 2014
Rims with a 23mm internal diameter? That's a seriously small wheel! On another note, any word on if they'll do a direct mount NW chainring?
