^This! Look at Manon Carpenter: one of her dayIntheLifeOfVids indicates she sees a pyschologist, which I'm assuming to mean she gets as much professional help with her mental preparedness as she does with her physical conditioning. There's only so much

because his contract will allow it? and late in what game? its end of season and end of contract. Contract implies mutual agreement, so if he leaves when out of contract, how he is being offensive to anyone but you and others who irrelevantly think its ... more »

Was really surprised to hear the Spesh team manager leaving. i thought eric carter was in for the long haul taking over from Sam heimahl? Gwin seems disinterested, and I just dont see the same team dynamic between him and Troy as there was with Troy ... more »

Needles to YT or SRAM/TLD? Cam to Scott (did they finally ditch Fairclough?) or Mondraker? Nick Beer to Giant? Kiwi to Sunn??

if there are rough edges use very fine grit water sandpaper and sand those rough edges down. Very fine cuts/scratches without raised edges won't do much damage to your seals. Anything wth a raised edge is a problem. Water paper those suckers down and ... more »

The tweel would work better for a mostly consistent road surface, that is for road riding. I' surprised they haven't moved over to a punctureless system yet You never going to please everyone in terms of tweel compliance vs pneumatic pressure, but you ... more »

Reply to What do you think about electronic MTB components? 6/1/2014 12:58 AM

for the masses, this is just another reach into your wallet. I mean, who exactly does the additional split second of gear changing really help if you are not a professional cyclist? It's actually an additional complication that literally requires more ... more »

interesting theory, but doesn't make sense as Yeti has a long history of supporting up and coming riders. They've never been afraid of losing their top dog.

iXS team sponsorship announcement mentioned Morgane Charre riding for Evil??! She was riding for MS Mondraker last year, and her FB still mentions the same. Did iXS gaffe it, or was that a major typo? EDIT! GAH! i see iceman posted it already!

i can see TLD didnt have overall control of the design of the CRC kit. sad. Spesh rags look hot, Madison easily the best though. Will see how it looks with the athletes all clad in it.

if it is Gwin to $pe$h, then the question about whether Hill left or was 'encouraged' is a different story. Or potentially can be rather

Maybe Gwin doesn't even have to break his contract: maybe his contract stipulates that unless Trek matches ... more »

Initially thought the bike looked like an outlined 'H' to underscore who it was referring to, but perhaps another polygon bikes recruit along with the Hannahs? They'd have men's, ladies, and junior ladies wrapped up. Only outstanding item is junior mens. ... more »

based on the previous performances, it doesnt seem as if troy needs to follow Sam anymore: that lad is blazing his own trail. Hell, is already riding clipped in.. the sacrilege!

Maybe Sam is just over spesh at this stage of his career and needs ... more »

Agreed. Also, when Nukeproof unveiled their new whip, the Pulse, many pointed out the obvious: it looks very much like the Transition TR450. That makes the cartoon even more insightful

well done Mr Artist. Well played.

well, if after a dose of beta blockers, you still get a rush from the course,then you know that's the gnarliest ride on the planet. but seriously a mild enough dose to keep the jitters under control but not lose the edge. yeah, i can imagine a few guys ... more »
