You could use the same argument but suspension can be tweaked to make a bad bike work and vice versa, tyres can't. Brakes can also be tweaked to preference, tyres can't. Though not all brakes and suspension are created equal, they can both be made to ... more »

I get why it's done in F1 and not in MTB. The minutia in F1 is far more important than it is in MTB, how cannot hope to design a bike around a tyre, too many variables. But say that it has little effect to those that have to run crap tyres. The goal ... more »

I kinda would MTB switched to F1 rules for tyres. There's your set for the weekend, there is your dry, wet and inters. This is the brand everyone is riding, crack on. I know marketing and all but i'd wager bad tyres hold riders back more than any other ... more »

That is not to say the little things that we as consumers or companies do are not important or irrelevant. Every little helps. But afew little things do not negate the big. The way the industry is setup is as wasteful and unfriendly to the environment ... more »

For the sake of this conversation it is probably better to look at what you are prepared to give up for a more sustainable industry. Bicycles are less pollutive than cars for transport, but mountain biking has little to no need to exist other than for ... more »

Reckon there is a solution to this one? Can't seem to see the Junit or any decent 20" fork is available with a straight steerer and boost legs to fit? New hub or is that fork out there...Any good? - https://www.bike24.com/p2376461.html

No, it's not guiding as long as money isn't changing hands. The French laws that apply to this are the same as skiing. Which were brought in when esf instructors got upset that chalet companies and other ski instructors bent the rules too far and offered ... more »

Before this turns into a "Why don't we have Champery anymore?!" rant.... It's because Champery etc don't make enough money from the process to warrant bidding for a World Cup. That's right, resorts bid for a World Cup nd pay the UCI lots of money. http://www.uci.ch/mm/Document/News/News/17/41/03/UCI-MTB-World-Cup-EN-low_Neutral.pdf ... more »

Not quite mate. Two and a half things on there grossly incorrect. Although 1 of those grossly incorrect things very nearly did happen.
