Or maybe they somehow know it will be a rainy season :D

I'm not sure about that, fox 40 sliders look way thicker. But those indeed look beefier than boxxers 35, maybe 36/38?

Well there is not much they can do about the rendering, image is enormous and consequently you need a lot of raw computing power. So you might need a stronger computer... But yeah 360 cams seem fun and all but for that price...

Not really, its more like sad reality. Strava in the end is just a social network of sportsmen/women but there are way too many people nowadays who are all about likes, kudos and KOMs. For them it is not about the journey (ride, fun) but about the destination (finish of a route/trails and a digital track). I like how strava allows you to track your riding and progress (or its inverse in the offseason haha), but to go riding just to compete against other people takes the essence away. Just google that guy who complained to strava support because somebody else took away all of his KOMs - laugh ensured :D

Looking at this map I'd guess that 50% of people riding up local hill descends via our trails... :D By far the worst part of strava is that you cannot see who put your trail on or that you don't have any reliable tool to report/remove routes other people ... more »

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 »
