Stan's No Tubes Factory Tour
"What helped you guys avoid some of the common small business pitfalls early on?" "Well, we avoided being raped by Specialized, so we were already ahead of 90% of other small bike companies"

Long Live the Kooks - Opinion
@Allergysix: I've also heard that his fox helmet is the only non-MX helmet he trusts to protect him when riding DH, maybe he has more faith in MX gear overall.

Pinkbike Poll: What's Your Mountain Biking Vice?
My vice started when I bought my first DH bike, things went downhill from there...

Yeti SB4.5c - Review
The real reason is probably the same as press fit BBs; it's cheaper to make a frame like that -and just like the press fit BB, it's worse for the customer. Clutch mechs and N/W chain rings are the only reason they can get away with it. Otherwise the bike would be torn apart in reviews. It's interesting that they seem to have forgotten the risk rocks present to chain rings.

Alive: The Joker - Video
Sorry guys, but this really didn't work for me... Far too much flickering, to the point that it became quite annoying. Also, too much slomo on uninteresting sections of the trail. Mainly though, I'm wondering what the point of this video was. If you had another rider in blacked out kit as Batman it could have featured a cool bike chase and maybe some kind of storyline. This edit just didn't make much sense to me. ...Also, the Joker is meant to be a crazy, laughing clown. Cheer up :)

WTB PadLoc Grips - Review
"Will a rider with hand issues, such as with their ulnar nerve, benefit from the PadLoc system? Probably" How about we get someone who actually has hand problems to test this properly instead of assuming something is beneficial because we didn't notice any improvement?

Behind the Bike: Developing the XXL Santa Cruz V10
Great article, just one thing: "...and creator of the MarshGuard, Jason Marsh" should say: "duplicator of the muckynutz bender fender" ;)

Solid as a Rock: Practice - XCO World Cup Round 3, La Bresse
It really surprises me that any teams use black race kit (or any dark colours for that matter) Surely a light kit that reflects the suns heat would help the riders stay cool and ride faster as a result?

Ask Pinkbike - Metric Shock Fitment and Rear Hub Spacing on DH Bikes
This^ I have the first generation Vitus Sommet from 2013, I wonder how many current components I wouldn't be able to fit onto it (and why). Hubs (boost) Rims (27.5) Tyres (27.5) Fork (27.5) Shock (metric) Most dropper posts (internal routing) Most new cranks (new BB sizes) About a thousand BB 'standards' 3 years for all of these changes, maybe in another 3 years we'll have new saddle clamps, a few different brake mounts, bar/stem diameters and perhaps a new chainguide mount and my bike will be officially, entirely obsolete. Fabulous.
