Park Tool EK-1 Tool Kit - Review
@Kainerm Ever been on a bike trip to somewhere remote? If not, you should try it! Stuff breaks, and if you don't fix it, you don't ride. And I'm cracking up at the roadie hate. Sure, some are just on the coffee shop, team jersey circuit, but many are just people loving riding bikes. Most great dirt riders also spend time on the road either training or riding to work and will crush you going both down and up. Power up your legs, don't be a weakling.

Crankworx 2013 - Altitude 770 Rally Edition: Best Bike at Rocky Mountain
Then you aren't the target audience. You might be more interested in the less-burly 790 MSL. Aggressive tires, wide rims and burly rear shock always weigh more than the lightest parts. Especially tires. Looks to me like Rocky has a winner on their hands. I'm personally glad to see that not all 150mm+ bikes are anorexic.

SRAM X01 Drivetrain
I'm waiting for some clever company to come out with 11-42 11 speed cassette that works on a standard freehub body. Maybe it's not doable based on spacing, but it would be a killer app. Or just wait another year until we have the X9 level product from SRAM. Shimano will eventually jump into the 1x11 game so there's competition once again. Drivetrains have gotten really good lately. Even 1x10 SLX stuff is awesome. This 1x11 is even awesomer.

Push Industries Air-Volume Tuning Kit for Fox/Trek DRCV Forks and Shocks
They build them from the factory so that 90% of riders "use most of the travel", not to screw you out of your money. If you ride extra hard or have a broader definition of what a "trail ride" is, then you'll blow through your travel. This is common on many/most brands of bikes. If it wasn't true, then the majority of riders would complain about not being able to use all their travel. One tune can't do it all for everyone. I found this on my '08 Remedy with the OEM RP23. I had to pump it too firm to keep from bottoming hard on my local rides and risk snapping my frame. I threw a small air can on there (available from Fox) and found it resisted bottoming nicely! Easy and cheap upgrade, just like this kit from PUSH is an easy and cheap upgrade.

Cast Your Vote for the Red Bull Rampage Video Contest Winner
Yeah Larry - that's how it works. Redbull is doing this all as a stunt to drive traffic to their website via all this voting and getting people to promote their vids on social media. They're brilliant at this kind of thing.

Cast Your Vote for the Red Bull Rampage Video Contest Winner
I build trails with Kevmo - places such as Flowtron 3000 and Crazy Ivan out at Tokul and the new goodness on Tiger Mountain. How cool is it to support guys who help us build killer places to ride? But that would suck if the vid suck, but it certainly is one of the top! I like the sense of drama it builds compared to the others. http://rb.launchpad6.com/video99
