Mike Day will usher in the era of the 20 inch wheeled mountain bike. Manufacturers will see the opportunity, drop all other wheel sizes, media will claim the 27.5 obsolete and we will all buy new frames and wheels (made out of nano particle$). "It's so playful!!!" we will post everywhere... Until the World Cup is later won on a bike with a 26 front and 24 back...

(Joking aside, loved Mikes comments about smiling all day! That is the flavor!)

Funny comment, but it looks like a number of those guys are bike shop owners testing potential buys and shop dudes. I dig that some are out of their element and open to riding outside their comfort zone.

Neko Mullaly's chainless run was all-time!!!

I can't imagine what was going through the other racers heads when they could not beat the chainless time...

I'll bet Neko learned something about himself on that run and we'll see it show up next year.

Trails that are not designated for motorized vehicles will not allow e-bikes.

I feel for the unlucky souls who buy these things, then think they can actually ride them on multiuse trails. They will be able to ride roads and OHV parks only. The marketing and sales of the bike will mention none of that.

I could go without seeing another; concept, pre-production, close-to-production, near-production, prototype, pre production prototype, close to production prototype, pro-only tester, DVO product until I see one on a regular dude's bike.

How about you give the repackaged press releases, reveals on these a rest until a real one hits the show room floor and someone can test ride it.

Until then, pretty colors, and that's it.

A normal tube will just expand to fit the tire. If you look at Schwalbe's (& Syntac's) solution, it has an inner "TIRE" and tube to keep the inner tube from expanding out.

At home, pump up a tube by itself to see how far it will expand at 50-80 psi.

Yes, we have horse extremists here. Just a few, but they are activists, very vocal, run some groups and will post up something like this and say it is something it is not. For example they are trying to stop a city bike park jump and pump track project for kids, and have done so by lying to government agencies and faking a not-real historical trail to try and kill it. Facts that reveal their lies weaken their power. They have been exposed to the city managers, so we are already that far. But I just want back story to be ready in the court of public opinion and kill misinformation fast.

You and I can take one look at that and recognize that's a sanctioned skills park and that kid was playing where he shouldn't have been. What Mr P is concerned about is this video being taken out of context and used against mountain bikers. Cropping the beginning and end to only show the...more

I worry that our enemies against MTB trail access will get ahold of this and use it against us. Regardless of the fact the rider was pinned, flying through the air and still came to a controlled stop and hurt/injured no one.

I would love more back story on this.

Was it a taped off race course?

Looks like an advanced trail, is there signage?

(Our local enemies to access will say anything, and I want facts to get ahead of the potential FB frenzy)
