One of the plaintiffs, Gold Country Trails has two mountainbike groups as affiliates. It's a little more nuanced than 'cowboys' suing the USFS. The wilderness society was already running around with their hair on fire screaming about Ted Stroll/Sustainable Trail Coalition's move to allow bike access in future wilderness decisions, with one of their key points being the existence of e-bikes. Just because lawsuits happen regularly doesn't diminish the fact that they will be used to decide where people ride bikes. They already are.

What he said. These podcasts are some of the best content on vital. But you guys seem ashamed of it for some reason and keep them hidden once they migrate off the front page. Inside line needs an outside link.

So how's that bronson leverage curve compared to the nomad? Moving away from the 'hammock' was kind of the point of that lower shock mount link, right?

Talking about shimano without mentioning the leaking pistons that eventually happens to all of them, every single model is only part of the picture. It's a key component to why those things have to be pumped up. They will always eventually get air in them though that mechanism. Sometimes it's within a week of being new, sometimes two years. But they all do it.

I'm probably the only person you know who regularly pushes up portal to come back down it multiple times in a row. Love it. I wanted to hear the bike sounds and what a short travel pivot sounds like when it cries. For science.

Dear bike companies: Don't put out press releases for products not available for 4-5 months. Especially when 'end of northern hemisphere riding season' is your release date.

Because OF COURSE crankbrothers wheels have proprietary spokes that tighten right there.
