Photo Epic and Video: Escape to Iceland
Iceland's scenery is like nothing else on earth. I didn't get to MTB on my trip this summer, but I did get to see a fair amount of the interior as a support for motorcyclists ... absolutely jaw dropping. We met some guys at Landmannalaugar who'd cycled over from Thorsmork, and were postholing through two feet of snow in mid July to do so. Crazy. If you're going to go cycling in Iceland, go sooner rather than later. At the moment, the cycling in this region is pretty much a free-for-all, but a lot of people suspect in the next few years the sheer number of tourists are likely going to mean some numbers control, and perhaps even closing a lot of this region to bikes. Get in while the going's good.

Video: Doerfling's Monster Line - Red Bull Rampage 2015
That was my first thought. That's not a line, that's a freefall.

Ask Pinkbike: Fitting a Shock Upgrade, Brake Lever Angles and Is There a Bike for Everything
Good advice about flipping the shock, something most people don't think of. I had to do this on my Kona Operator to fit a World Cup Air, and though it looks weird and gets me heckled in the lift line, it works perfectly.

Kona Process 167 - Review
Quite honestly, if you worry about resale, you shouldn't buy a Kona anyway. Their resale is appalling (I've owned three so I know), and I've always wondered why, because their bikes aren't that bad.

Awesome to know, thanks! Often with cheap fares they stiff you on the extras.

5 Tips For Flying With Bicycles
Oh god, so this. I have gotten to New Zealand with 173cm long snowboards in a 188cm rolling bag, and the rental car company is like "We don't have the station wagon you booked, here's a Toyota Corolla". Long and hard "negotiations" finished with me in a brand new Rav4 and no upgrade charges ... but now I always call ahead to make sure that they know I'm bringing boards or bikes, and the wagon is non-negotiable.

Ladies Gear and People on the Streets - Interbike 2015
Oh my God Alpinestars. Did you actually talk to any women? "bangs head on wall" I did like the Pearl Izumi stuff though (apart from the gym shorts, WTF?)

Panning for Gold: Dirt Demo - Interbike 2015
Surprisingly good pedals though, and well priced.

Behind Trek's Click-And-Collect Sales
This might just be my experience here, but or most people buying a high end bike, this actually isn't that much of a departure. We have a local shop that carries a number of boutique brands, but if they have fully built bikes on the floor for sale, it's only one or two of certain models. If you want something else, you have to order it through them, and - guess what - pay MSRP. You can get a decent deal at season end (and it will be interesting to see if Trek does the same), but generally speaking, in season you're not going to be cutting a deal with the shop that would be any different to Trek's online price. So it's neither here or there, and if it gets you what you want faster ... I'm pretty meh on this, because I personally think Treks are overpriced and overrated and they'd be low on my buy list. But I can see why dealers would be annoyed. The wrong size return in particular is asinine. If Trek sends it, they should get it back - not dump it on some dealer who had no say in it.
