Completely understandable, but we all agree they should be making separate DH tracks and not use existing bikeparkish stuff (I mean it's ok to use a jump or berm here and there), but 1/2 of track being motorway kinda sucks and we are all tired of seeing ... more »

There is nothing wrong in being one because UCI... well sucks. In order to host WC you need, according to UCI, at least 410k CHF... http://www.uci.ch/mm/Document/News/News/17/41/02/UCI-MOUNTAIN-BIKE-low-EN_Neutral.pdf
It think it is easy to assume new venues have hard time getting that sum of money and see the benefits of spending it... Ok world cup race should cost less but I've heard the number in still 5 figure. It would be interesting if someone from likes of BDS or IXS cup would tell how much exactly costs to organize such an event and to see how much is the part of the UCI... I think they also have power to shut down any possible series that would challenge them...

Woot, you seriously have no import taxes in Portugal? I'm from Slovenia and we have to pay VAT for importing anything above 22€ and additional import tax if the value of the goods exceeds 150€.

I've just built my trails on the closest hill so yeah... Now we are building new trails on a bit higher hill which requires 20 mins of pedaling, next proper set of trails is like 30 min drive away and first bike park is a bit less than an hour away. ... more »

I paid 205€ for xt mech, shifter, 11-42 casette and XTR chain shipped from Germany. I was considering updating my zee mech and xt cassete with one-up, which would cost me maybe 1/2 but would still be left with slightly used mech and worn chain/cogs. ... more »

We already concluded procore and enve is not compatible. Also push shock does not come in DH sizes (8.5,9.5)... And HOLLY MOLLY 800 for pulley, are they for real? :D
