How to Crash with Nicholi Rogatkin - Video
Story at my local jump spot is that he came up to a guy there and apologized profusely for tire-tapping his helmet with his back wheel... While they were both riding. Dude hadn't even noticed, and when he checked his helmet, sure enough, there was a tire mark from one side to the other. He really is a nice guy, just doesn't like tipping his hand at competitions. He's also among he first to congratulate other competitors if you look closely during events.

January 2016: Good Month or Bad Month?
If anybody ever asks you to deliver a eulogy for someone, please politely decline.

Two Days Left to Help Matt MacDuff 'Raise the Loop'
RallyX is just a bigger version of when I tailwag my Subaru in my driveway. Flying a helicopter is just a bigger version of flying a drone. The presidential election is just a bigger version of your local politics. So... You go ride your bike through a 10 or 15 foot loop-de-loop, and then not appreciate what's happening here. Danny Mac had a hard enough time of it for Road Bike Party 2, so... I'm going to support Matt, who is already an awesomely rad dude, and really enjoy watching him rail the snot outta this one.

Specialized Toupe' Comp

$50 USD
This is a Specialized BG Toupe' Comp Gel saddle. 143mm width. Has carbon, and really has only been ridden on for about three hours. No tears, perfect condition other than marks on the rails from being attached to a seatpost. Price is firm @ $50 USD plus shipping (or local cash pickup), because this saddle will generally cost you $110 after taxes and is, as far as I'm concerned, mechanically perfect, and cosmetically almost such. I'm perfectly happy to keep it on an XC bike or something so don't even bother messaging me if you're going to try and dick about with the price.

*Price Drop* Origin8 Fix8

$175 USD
This is an Origin8 Fix8. Single Speed, cromoly steel frame and fork, good fun commuter bike for someone looking to try something new. Has one brake on the front wheel in addition to the obviously fixed gear in the back. I commuted on this bike for the summer but now I have no use for it, because my wife and I moved within very close proximity to Highland Bike park. Sale includes ALMOST everything hanging on the bike, except the saddle and pedals- The saddle pictured is an additional $50, while the pedals are not for sale unless you really, really want to pay for them. There is literally nothing wrong with this bike. Almost all the parts are either brand new or in very good condition. Rebuilt the rear wheel with new spokes. Can include a blue anodized deep-section rim if that's your fancy (Don't have photos of it yet). Shipping is on the buyer, I'll foot the paypal fee. Local pickup with cash is preferred.

Opinion: Should You Take More Risks?
I think I understand what you're trying to say, but your skill level needs to grow proportionately to the amount of controlled risk you take, else you just become another insurance statistic.

Acquired Tastes - Opinion
I actually thought the idea was kind of cool at first (I knew about 650b stuff when 29ers were gaining popularity). Now all I can think about them is that with the trails I ride, I'd rather have the slightly increased nimbleness and stiffness (not to mention durability) of a 26", or just straight up go 29" (if I'm going to the dark side, I'm not going to just be a storm trooper- I'll go full on Sith Lord). Of course, I also do probably about 50% dirt jumping so a bigger wheel would screw up my bike's geometry pretty bad, but hey. Every bike has its purpose, some serve certain purposes better than others.
