If it were less of a Dainese ad, I would agree VOY. But definitely worth a VOD, hopefully in the next few days!

Ibis' New Ultra Wide Carbon Rim Wheelsets
FFS, just because there are 27.5 and 29" options out there doesn't mean it is ok to forget about 26" completely!

From The Top - SRAM CEO Stan Day
SRAM, I love your components, but please don't do electronic MTB drivetrains or brakes. It's a ridiculous gimmick!

Pinkbike Poll: Three Wishes
1 - Trails; more easily accessible, good quality trails. Not just for me, for everyone that rides. Everything else can be bought or worked for, but trails are not always easy to find or build. - 2 - Simplicity. The MTB industry has gotten ahead of itself with all the "innovation" in recent years. I could go on forever about this, but my point is that bikes should be simpler than they are. I don't need 3 different wheel sizes just because racers use them, I don't need remote controllable seatposts or suspension, I don't need front shifting, or 11 gears in the rear for that matter, and I don't want to send my suspension off for a tune because it's too proprietary to work on at home. 9 speeds is enough for most terrain, and the less complexity there is in a bike (within reason), the less there is to go wrong. Plus, simpler parts would drive prices down, meaning four-figure receipts would be much less common. - 3 - A riding companion. Whether a friend, SO, trail dog, whoever it may be. Having someone pleasant to ride with is an important part of MTB in my opinion. The fun of blasting a trail is made immeasurably better by having someone to race with, follow, lead, or just talk with as you revel in the joy of being on a bike. - I really try to appreciate the simple things in life, those little pieces that often go unnoticed, but are key to the experience. Keep it chill.

Totally agree, moderation is more valuable than excess.

DT Swiss Spline ONE EX1501 Wheelset - Review
"don't scale the wallet-scaring heights" - "relatively obtainable" - Excuse me if I am being irrational, but for most average humans, $1000 for wheels is not an easy purchase to justify. While these aren't the MOST expensive out there, the price is really only "obtainable" at a stretch. These are elite wheels, with a price to match.

Mongoose Signs Montgomery and Watts
I'm happy for Watts and Akrigg, they both have some real teammates now, and Watts finally has a solid sponsor. But Mike... could have done better, at least he might help Mongoose come out with some better bikes in the near future. Positive changes!
