YT Industries 2016 Bike Range: New Year, New Bikes, New Look
I'm pretty sure the decisions on the spec of the 2016 range was made at least half a year ago. While Gwin sais he hasn't signed a contract yet. I'm not saying he won't ride for YT, just that this doesn't have anything to do with him.

2016 British Downhill Series Entries Now Open
Never raced a BDS, but from what I heard it's just a lot smaller, more crowded, way more expensive and more chaotic than the IXS Cup races? Some of the Tracks look great though from Video. I was thinking about making the journey to Britain to try out a few events, but I think I'll first try all the EDC and SDC races.

Phil Atwill: Crushing It - Video
what's so bad about promoting his own business, some people who enjoyed that video might be interested in that and it's just a normal post, nothing annoying. The video is full of company logos and names, yet nobody calls that awful and shameful.

All Stories End, Trek World Racing - Video
He signed a letter of intend mid season I think, so he wasn't threatening to leave. You're assuming a lot there.

Schwalbe Procore Tire System - Review
Also: I don't think just rolling over a curb at a right angle is what causes flats. I wonder if anyone ever looked into that, like trying different angles of the bike to the curb or the wheels to the ground. My experience is that landing on 2 slanted rocks at a weird angle is pretty much a flat guaranteed. The first few days in the alps I and 2 friends had to put in tubes at the rear wheel because we rode through some nails. That and single ply enduro tires were a horrible combination and we had about 4 flats a day (per person). We started pumping the rear tire up to 3bars, but that actually didn't improve things at all, the ride just got horrible. I think we could have put 4-5 bars in there, that wouldn't have changed anything, except of maybe destroying the rim and tire. The trails there are super rocky, fast and long and a trail bike just rides a lot harsher than a downhillbike, I'm not sure even procore would've made a difference there.

Schwalbe Procore Tire System - Review
Saying "well it's heavy but you could use a lighter tire and rim" in the same article where you said several WC racers broke their rims and you got a cut in your tire ist kind of stupid isn't it? Earlier this season I had 2 tire cuts that where so big I had to trash the tires and witnessed about 5-6 smaller cuts that needed to be patched up during my 2 week holiday in the alps. On average I also trash one rim per season and bike (Enduro and DH), even though I use proper rims as I can't afford buying new ones all the time. So getting lighter wheels and tires means still gaining weight and ending up with more issues than you had before.

Review: FOX Float X2 Shock
Why not test a DH worthy air shock on a DH bike? Isn't that what it was originally intended for?

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Play With Your Knobs?
I checked the second box, but it's not like I'll go to a track and start thinking about my setup, it's more like I'm riding it and if I feel I hit my BB too much or my fork uses too much travel I'll use 1-2 more clicks of compression than usual. Works the other way around as well, when I feel my suspension is too harsh, but I don't really think about it until something bogs me. On my Enduro it was more like set and forget, I can't remember tinkering with it the last few month.
