Top 3 of 2015 - Opinion
I would not mind the 27.5 inch wheeled bikes so much if they at least still gave me the option of going with 26 inch wheels. But they are not even giving me a choice with the recent mountain bikes. Also, many disciplines of mountain biking still rely on 26 inch wheels (trials, dj, street), which both of my bikes have (trials and street). For the most part. This allows me to have one set of tubes and tires that I can use between all of my bikes. If I also end up breaking a wheel, I can also switch the wheels and ride what I want. With only 27.5 inch bikes available, I would not be able to do these things. I am not disapproving or approving the advantage of 27.5 inch rims, but there was not anything wrong with 26 inch rims to begin with, especially for hobby riders like most of us. Some mountain bike innovations like rear suspension, fork lock out, dropper posts, and carbon parts clearly show the advantage. But pushing 1.5 inch bigger wheels seem more like a marketing scheme than an innovation to me.

Fat Biking in the Yukon - Video
I agree. It is almost as bad as starting the video with the rider waking up, cooking & eating breakfast, and having a coffee before it shows any kind of riding. Videos need to start with the straight up riding instead of this BS.

Pinkbike Poll: Have You Had Your Bike Stolen?
Yes, I had it stolen from my garage. Found it being sold on NSMB, so I met up with a seller and got it back. Told the cops, but they did not bother.

Trials specific disk brake from Hope. Widely regarded to be one of the best disc brakes for trials usage. It is in a used shape, but no defects or damages that require fixing. It was well functioning when I took it off my bike a few months ago to try a different setup. Also included are the pads, as well as a 7 inch Magura rotor. $70 Thanks!

Used, but like new condition Texas Instruments Ti-84 Plus Graphing Calculator. I am located in UBC, but can meet somewhere else in Vancouver as well. If the ad is up, the item is available for sale. I am missing one battery, so you will have to bring your own battery to test the calculator. Considering that a new Ti-84 Plus calculator from Staples will cost you $140 + Tax (http://www.staples.ca/en/Texas-Instruments-TI-84-Plus-Graphing-Calculator/product_566641_2-CA_1_20001), $70 for my calculator is more than reasonable. Thanks!
