That's a pretty unique idea. I'm not sure there's a solution to that problem yet.

Remember when XTR hubs laced to 517s was the hot shit wheelbuild? And suddenly alloy nipples came out and you could get some fancy looking shits? And your shop would handbuild them and it'd be like 600 bucks? And then Crossmax and Deemax wheels came out and they were like $800 and everyone though that was really fucking expensive.
Now we get excited when wheels only cost 2 grand.
And get off my lawn!

Is anyone actually surprised by this move? Had to figure it was part of RedBull's long game in sponsoring the series.

Added reply in a thread Is Trek hinting at a natural fiber construction? (EDIT: Nope, it's WaveCel helmet technology) 3/27/2019 5:48 PM

I like how Trek put out a bunch of hyped up material to say their helmet is the best, and now every other helmet company is putting out hyped up material saying that Trek's stuff sucks and THEIR helmet is the best.

After all these months, it dawned on me that the thing we really shoulda been talking about here is how large Blenki's vertical leap is, even off a kicker. Gotta be at least a meter. Dude is up there. Maybe it's time for a WCDH combine?

I spend the winter winter rewatching road and XC races while sitting on the trainer, and Nino makes the XC racing boring because he kicks everyone's ass and he does it with style. He has this comfort on a bike that none of the XC racers do and only the ... more »

From 2:20 on, best riding vid since that George Brannigan one a few years back. Woulda been better with less car and more gnar though.
There should be a rule or some shit that if you're gonna make an "edit" you gotta make it look like it came from Earthed. And get off my lawn, you kids.

Added reply in a thread How would you stop Richie from flatting? 8/17/2018 9:03 AM

Yup. But you guys can keep talking about equipment if you like. Sometimes riding at 95% is faster than 110%, and grace will often beat hulk-smashing your way down the mountain. That would also be the same way you stop Brook Macdonald and Gee Atherton ... more »

Listen to the Inside Line podcast with Martin Whitely for a good explanation. EWS and WCDH are different beasts. One thing he points out that I don't think anyone ever thinks of is that it's a logistical nightmare for teams to go to lots of new locations every year.

Hear hear. I don’t think Finn Iles playing FIFA is that stressful that using the Fbomb is necessary, sorry. And... being a pro athlete comes with perks and responsibilities such as being a role model, weather they like it or not. I also don’t like everything about my job.

alright world class athletes; watch your mouths! Take some notes from Aaron Gwin, the best of all time in the making, never heard him use the F word in an interview. Kids are listening and idolize you guys.

I guess Minnaar's elbow is still busted?

Sucks about the conditions, but it's cool to see some new names at the top. Good opportunity for some privateers to show off.

Agreed. And even if not, better to sit out for the weekend rather than ruin your year or career
