Ask Pinkbike: Going Tubeless, Stripped Nipples, and Riding in Germany
I second the Koenigstuhl trails in Heidelberg. When I was there in 2012 you could take the bus from the city center up to the top of the hill. It ran every hour on the hour, and dropped you off right at the trailhead. The timing of the bus is pretty great. It takes about 30 min up and 15 min back to the bus stop. You can run laps all day without having to bother with your own transport. As I student I loved it cause I could study on the ride up and then ride down. HOWEVER! If you do take the bus be sure to be courteous to your fellow passengers. That same bus stops at a nursing home and often has elderly passengers.

PINKBIKE POLL: Press-Fit Bottom brackets
"he point is moot, however, because over time, natural selection has eliminated all the brands that made noisy thread-in bottom brackets." - Laughed at this. As a mechanic I can tell you that the one think I hate working on the most are PF-BB's, and the writer's use of the past tense here to describe the "natural selection" of BB is just wrong. This past week I had to fix this issue on three different bikes. All of which are 2015 models or newer. What I find the most irritating is most fixes are all temporary. Even Specialized's recommendation of epoxy (yes, they do recommend you use epoxy to help keep there BB's from fixing) works for only about a year. To answer the question-- if BB's were silent I probably would still go threaded, simply because the noise is only a symptom of a larger problem. If the BB shell(Frame, or plastic cups) is made out of anything softer than aluminum the aluminum ring of the bearing will eventually gouge into it. Which will eventually lead all other bearings installed later having a poor fit.

Aesthetically speaking, not quite sure if this photo really does it for me. However, technically speaking- wonderful shot. Emotionally speaking my reaction to this shot feels almost like a Pollock painting. The 'artistic' quality isn't necessarily in the finished photo, but rather in the artists technique to create it. Kudos on the POD.
