The B-Side: Death and Tacos
Good to see you here, Danielle! I always enjoyed your fresh, brutally honest, humorous columns in Bike. I'm estranged from my dad, and you reminded me here that I need to get out on a challenging distance ride and think long and hard about that... Pinkbike, you made a fine choice of columnist.

Yeti 575 - Review
I'm just about to sell my 2012 575 (26"). After riding it for two years, I'd pretty much say exactly the same thing about it's characteristics as this review states. It's like riding a couch, which is good for a person with my lack of technical skills. Just point the bike and let 'er rip! It was a good way to dive head first into rocky, technical trails as a new mountain biker because it's very forgiving and builds confidence. But yes, it's soft and saggy in the climbs, and it's time for me to move on to more of an "enduro" bike that can handle chunder but not weigh me down so much on the long, grinding climbs that Colorado riding demands. I hate to say this, because I love Yeti, but it doesn't sound like the 575 has changed very much. If you want one, buy a used one and play to your heart's content. It's super fun to ride and takes a beating, but is not the greatest all-rounder.

Video: 12 Months 12 Stories - It's Not Always Sunny in the Movie
I really like the B&W. I think it enhances the sensation of "cold" when watching.

To The Point: MIPS
Bicycling Magazine (US) has provided a special, online link to its extensive story about MIPS and helmet regulations -- the histories and testing and status of both. It is worth a read: http://www.bicycling.com/senseless/index.html

WTB, VP, and Element Case - Interbike 2013
$200+ for a phone case?!? Sorry, but I'll go with the other commentators and buy a cheap, second-hand beater phone to throw in my bag for emergencies. The only use I can see is for people bike touring or racing multi-day, self-supported routes on dirt roads and trails where they need to navigate a complicated route for several days in all kinds of treacherous weather.

Viva Las Vegas - Interbike 2013
Gorgeous photos. You get sick of the brown, brown, brown after a few days in Bootleg, so B&W is brilliant. And, "back by popular demand?" Haha. I haven't worked Interbike in three years and I'm STILL tired from that week. Thanks for letting me live it from my couch.

Video: White Balance
I was really struck by the use of sound in this edit - the snow shovel on the rocks, the crunch of the tires on snow, the obnoxious squeak of the brakes. Beautiful. Well done.

Random Products Part Five - Interbike 2012
I'm going to be so sad when these bright colors go out of style. I'm getting to re-live my childhood in all its neon glory!

Shoe, Pedal and Foot Placement Tips for Flat Pedals
Interesting piece. Ever since Dirt Rag (I think it was DR, maybe it was BIKE) Magazine published a piece extolling the virtues of riding flats, I know a few people who switched immediately, which was completely silly. It shouldn't be perceived as a fad. I think when it comes down to it, it's all about personal preference. We can't discount the comfort factor for people still learning. If you're introducing someone to MTB, I would definitely start them on flats and let them decide for themselves later on. I started MTBing on clipless because I came from the road bike world and didn't know any better. It scared me shitless being attached to a bike hurtling down a rock garden. Discovering flats was a Godsend. I am now so much more ambitious, brave and comfortable knowing I can instantly throw a foot down (without snapping an ankle) if attempting a feature or jump doesn't go well. I don't need to be fast. On the rare occasion I race XC, I absolutely use clipless. But my big, burly Yeti has permanent flats. It likes to eat trails. It doesn't need to go fast. :-)
