Idk....so the guy who caused an uproar by saying bikes aren’t allowed to call a “half cab” a half cab anymore - cuz it’s a skateboard trick he invented ...and he legit said: they need to start calling it a “half bunny hop”. Yeah Steve....I’m looking at you sideways cuz of that

Great recommendation. Been looking for an app like this........ but is it mandatory $30.00 a year to use? I mean $30 one time fee is fair reasonable but every year- smh. Isn’t there some Arc GIS online stuff for free?

A long time ago (~15yrs ago) - I was watching America’s Funniest Home Videos and the host introduced the bike crashes section of the show by saying: “What is it about bicycles that makes regular people who get on one, think they are 5 times better then they actually are?” ——- Well this was, and is, a profoundly true statement and to this day i have not really been able to answer it fully. You hinted around the idea of this for #3 but also did not elucidate. It is like a koan of the bike

What’s Out: The bike industry always trying to push the idea that you need to buy a new bike every two years because 1.) the newer bikes “are so much better” or 2.) your parts are worn out and now are dangerous to ride or 3.) only a damn fool rides a bike made 2-3 yrs ago.

I’m gonna need to see some riding clips to make sure Teamrobot has still got the clout on MTB. Last I heard he bought a Volvo- and got a job as an insurance actuary or something (aka- he “fell off”)

Props to him for building trails and features that normal riders can actually ride. When I saw the title: “Nico Vink builds bike park”.....I definitely assumed it was gonna be super sized jumps that 99.9% of people couldn’t ride.

That was pretty sick..... it’s funny I never heard of him or Radiobikes - even tho I’m one of the few who keeps up with the Street scene.

Added a comment about video Recumbent Barspin with Kirt Voreis 11/10/2019 11:19 AM

Semi off topic but I’m curious to know: Why does Pinkbike always seem to be 24-48 hrs ahead of Vital when posting someone’s new content? i noticed this esp for many big name vids (e.g. Semenuk, Macaskill) and now this video. This was also true for Redbull edits from Rampage. Is it because they have more people activity looking for content on their YouTube subscriptions? Contracted that way? Not hating but by the time it is posted here -it has been watched and throughly discussed over there. Vital does seem to post Cam Mccaul vids first though.............

Added a comment about video Marzocchi Proving Grounds - Rampage Qualifier Under Construction 8/25/2019 6:20 PM

Every year there always seems to be a small segment of the mtb world that starts making claims about Rampage “losing its way” or “too slopestyle” or lost it “original spirit” ........ and I wonder - wtf do these people expect it to be??

And the only answer I can come up with is: they want it to be a glorified Downhill race- with some big drops that are straight aired.

And as I said last year, once that happens (if ever) , Redbull will pull its title sponsorship, people will lose interest and it will be “Rampage- Sponsored by Lipton Ice tea”. It will lose all clout as an extreme sports event.

Added a comment about video Slopestyle Meets Rampage as Brandon Semenuk Plays Bikes in Utah 8/6/2019 1:48 PM

Just an observation but, for example, when he jumps the first two jumps ..... the hub goes silent after he leaves the lip - and other jumps it continues to pawl in the air. Something also seemed off about the “Doppler effect” of the pawl passing by.....as if the sound was captured elsewhere and spliced in. At the end of the day it is still a great vid tho.

I’d bet twenty dollars at least 1/2 of the hub pawl was added in as a sound effect.......just so it seems more “raw”
If you think it’s all real then This vid is for you
