finally one that will fit my mattoc.

edit: does the plastic carrier work with the multi tool from the original EDC? the listing for the lite seems to imply that, and mentions that extra carriers can be purchased for $15. I have the original EDC, if it works with that tool I'd rather just buy the carrier itself, but can't seem to find it.

update: got a response from oneup. the plastic carrier will work with the multitool from the original EDC, and the plastic carrier is listed under small parts for the EDC. currently out of stock, but they said it should be back in stock next week.

i remember hearing Neko on a podcast last year (i wanna saw it was Downtime - sorry spomer!), in regards to domestic racing and the pro GRT; he was talking a lot about this - how difficult it is for US racers to make that step to WC level in regards to the points requirement. i remember him acknowledging how it seemed counterintuitive to have so few Pro GRT races, but that it was part of a longer term goal to build the series back up.

Well said. A few years ago I got 5th at US Nationals and qualified for my first World Cup. I now work my ass off as a traveling nurse- often on call and overtime and get usually get up at 5 am, train, and then go work a 10 hr shift. Not at a desk. In surgery. Lifting more heavy...more

Another issue: the UCI should take a look at how the FIS handles the comebacks of injured skiers. As far as I know when injured skiers come back they are in an "insured state" for a couple of races where they can keep their pre-injured starting position. So something like with...more

While I agree with your sentiments on UCI giving close to zero f*cks about DH, it can be argued that without Redbull, UCI could very well reduce DH even further or remove it from overall broadcasts. With all it's faults, Redbull has done a lot for our sport many other potential...more

That’s what the bull does. Spend a bunch of money in some extreme sport and then get into a position to dictate terms. The fact that their media house is who we have to rely on for race coverage sucks to no end. The fact that the uci let them in tells you everything you need to...more

agreed that was the obvious one at first, but in light of this development it's a possibility. a square is a polygon too, so it could be interpreted either way.

Hart to a new Polygon team? their bike is the Xquareone (square one - warner made a square comment during commentating). with tracey no longer racing WC's Polygon may want a WC racer. unsure about Mick, but he's been racing a long time too. edit: sounds ... more »

if they're working on a new drivetrain, they're working on new brakes. the only times i can think of that shimano hasn't revised the entire platform is when they introduce the di2 drivetrains. and the occasional pedal.

Added reply in a thread Shimano Working on a New Saint Derailleur? 10/16/2020 9:35 AM

with the exception of the pedals, the current saint grouppo has been on market for 8 years. its actually the longest a shimano grouppo has gone unchanged.

in my line of work a common approach that's utilized is called bookending - we'll test/validate at the lower & upper limits of pertinent product features/parameters (such as geometry & size) - ie the worst cases - and rationalize not having to ... more »

forgot to add: for things like links, dropouts, floating brakes, its definitely a gray area. also - i wonder how they initially handled the Atherton bikes brand since a lot of those are custom, but the same customizations are now commercially available ... more »

no, that's from the general organization section of the regulations, so it applies to all cycling disciplines (including BMX and trials). regarding things like custom links, dropouts, etc - the regulations aren't explicitly clear about that, but i would ... more »

see my point above re: UCI rules. there's a 12 month timeframe you can race a bike without it being for sale to the public before you have to start selling it or stop racing it.

Added reply in a thread 2021 Mountain Bike Team Rumors 10/14/2020 7:24 AM

on the c'dale team topic - there is a UCI rule that stipulates bikes/components used in racing must be available for commercial sale within a certain timeframe from when they are first raced. since c'dale didn't commercialize the DH bike they were racing, ... more »

not for nothing, but giant currently isn't offering their DH bike for sale in the US, not sure if that's business driven or is somehow tangentially driven by their limited DH program - 3 riders, one of whom isn't a dedicated full time racer. nothing ... more »
