Ryan Nyquist to Compete at MTB and BMX in 2016 - Video
Unfortunately, that is the state of journalism on the internet. However Pinkbike is MUCH better than most so cut them some slack. At least when they read your comment they will probably edit and correct their mistakes, which is more than I can say for most cut and paste internet based "journalists".

From the Top: Gavin Michael Vos
I was already curious about getting some vibrocore bars this season, and after hearing the manufacturing philosophy and amount of in-process inspection, I think I the new 29" trail wheelset might be on my list, too.

Ask Pinkbike: Shock Adjustments, Upgrading a Drivetrain, and DH Helmet Options
You can go 1x11 with shimano xt (minus crankset) for around $215 on ebay. I test rode it at an ibis demo and it worked beautifully. By the time you buy a new front chainring, fuss with your rear derailleur to clear a large 42 or 45 cog, and likely get less than ideal performance - xt 1x11 starts looking better all the time. I plan on upgrading to XT from my 1x10 later this spring. It is even a great deal cheaper than Sram's GX series and it is compatible with current10sp freehubs.

Filling in for Santa with Dave Wardell - Video
If they were available when I first started riding, I would have been happy to ride a hardtail, or even rigid, 27+ bike just for the extra cushion and better geometry. Most "mountain bikes" had more in common with road bikes than BMX, so they handled super sketchy and you felt every single bump in the trail. All of the trails were worn in by hikers so they were completely natural, never seen a rake or shovel. I remember my body feeling beat to hell after many rides. Plus back then, only rich white people rode full suspension bikes and they were heavy and couldn't climb hills well. This would have been a dream bike back then. I would love it if they made several tires in the 2.5-2.7 range and let us pick what fits our frames and terrain.

Backyard Exploration with Sasha Yakovleff
I live in Northern Utah (Ogden area) and I am no where near finished exploring all the trails around here (-been trying for over 20 years!). I constantly hear about new ones. I don't think I know anyone around here who's even ridden all the trails in their local area, plus we all have to keep a few trails on the DL so that they don't get overcrowded. I work about 3 miles up the road from that skatepark in Oakley and I am looking forward to exploring Park City next year for my after work rides.

Ambitions, Featuring Emily Batty - Video
Probably cause she has small hands - I remember doing this myself when I was a wee BMX racer.

Pushing Comfort Zones: Learning to Jump - Rider Perspective
^^ 100% right! If you're not a lazy poacher you can always build a jump or line that's at or just above your level. Plus digging and shaping teaches you more about dirt jumps than just jumping alone. For example height, length, steepness, transition shape, and landing shape all affect how you should hit each jump.

Contest: Who is Chester?
Chester would buy his own pedals rather than think of something dumb to say about himself.

Interview: What Norbs Says - Red Bull Rampage 2015
Either Danielle Baker doesn't know how to ask a question, or Norbs doesn't know how to give a meaningful answer. Perhaps he's running for political office and is learning how to use a lot of words without ever answering the question.
