Pinkbike Awards 2015: Best Gear or Accessory
I personally enjoy trails so eroded that they reached the rock bed. Makes for some interesting rock slab riding. On the other hand, I've seen crazy rutted trails that were pretty much impossible to ride. It depends a lot on the terrain and how much effort people willing to put to keep the trails in decent shape.

Pinkbike Awards 2015: Best Gear or Accessory
I understand their point though. They organize trail maintenance days and barely anyone shows up but some people seem to make it a point to ride in the mud. It's ok if you don't want to do trail maintenance but don't make it harder for people who do if you don't contribute. Most of the trail maintenance people are volunteers and they have limited time and resources so they'd much rather build new sections or improve existing ones (or just ride their bikes) than repair the same ones all the time because some people couldn't wait long enough after a rainfall.

Check Out - January
Curious about how long those lasts. It seems like the sun will go out before my rogues/oury die at this point.

Pinkbike Awards - Enduro Race of the Year Nominees
There's been a massive load of coverage on PB and sadly for me, even though it is the discipline I should probably relate to the most, I found myself having a very hard time caring about it. I was very happy when it started getting more attention but somehow it just seems like it failed to live up to the hype.

December: Good Month or Bad Month?
I'm not sure if I'm more mad at the industry for pulling the "lets make 5 new wheel standards because" or news sources like PB for eating it up without much questioning. They can welcome and enjoy the changes all they want but when they avoid being critical and blatantly shame and discredit those who dare question industry decisions that's where they lose credibility all across the board in my eyes.

Aaron Gwin and Specialized Part Ways - Here's Why
If they really cared that much about the recognition though they wouldn't have dropped arguably the best rider on the circuit. They drew a line and figured it wasn't worth it and if they did so, its because the numbers didn't add up for them.

Aaron Gwin and Specialized Part Ways - Here's Why
Ah ok, I wish we'd see more of him. Videos like his lone wolf one speaks to me (and the average rider I bet) a million times more than any WC superstar footage.

Aaron Gwin and Specialized Part Ways - Here's Why
He doesn't but people relate to him and he costs them next to nothing I bet. Meanwhile enduros/stumpjumpers sell like hot cakes. I bet a lot more people would like to see Graves on spesh than Gwin staying on the team. Gwin's the best but they don't sell much demos anyway so why even bother paying him? The demo works, he proved it last season, why pay him a ton of money when they already got what they wanted out of the deal?

YT still has a lot to prove on the WC. Getting your bike on the top step of the podium means a lot more for an emerging brand's image than it does for brands with DH bikes that are already "race proven". Guys like Gee/Aaron can manage to win on just any brand so they're a good bet if that's your goal.
