What? I thought everyone uses Strava nowadays??? ;)

We just yelled out KOM bitches!!! At the start of the first climb and then when the Strava folks are gone we take a different trail. ;)

i suspect that given their druthers, any gravity rider with a choice would opt for the increased stiffness of a 36 over a 34, to say nothing of the benefits of a real (rc2 vs ctd) damper

'Bout time! Now we're just waiting for the redesigned 38mm Lyrik.

OMG yes. The bastard child of a Lyrik and a Totem.

There's nothing better than an Orangina after cheating death with Digger.

At first i was meh but by the end of the video I had come around. That's a cool idea if it works well.

from the pits at this weekend's race in the french alps:

lapierre racers get off the robot suspension program and on the ohlins coilover program

proto x-fusion fork with external high and low speed compression adjusters

but really, who cares about toys when you've got views like this:

graves' proto yeti sb 6c

don't think there's anything new on oton's spartan but its a hot looking bike

keene takes his first podium the first time he races a non 29er…

note the rear pivot location on lars' covert

does the fact that sponsel was riding a 34 with a 1x10 saint drive train have anything to do with all the whining?

more goodies here: http://www.pinkbike.com/news/crankworx-2014-enduro-world-series-bike-checks.html

random stuff that i found interesting: lots of pro's riding blacked out stans flows; lots of people running hans dampfs out back

i'm amazed by how minimalist some of these guys go. climbing in the heat (with a lack of water stations) with a ff [HTML_REMOVED] no pack (though it does look like gravey had some sort of super stealth pack under his jersey).

also: narrow wide rings seem kinda moot when almost no one will actually rely on one naked in race conditions.

and: magic marys - they rock.

Chad Hendren did it with a 36 front and road cassette. He was nothing but smiles on the GLC patio after with no complaints.

I'm assuming he was the guy on the sweet new xprezo in my cat (old guys). I'm grinding climbs in my 30x42, and he goes hammering by in what looks like a 26t cog. Fit bastard, he.

Just looking at the results - sponsel is no slouch (57 mins). I'm surprised at the whining; he got things done in a fairly expeditious manner. Though not having fun going fast, evidently. Must be tough.

how much time do they get for transfers? Like, do they have to crank or is it a little more cruisey?
