Exposure MaXx-D Mk8 light - Review
I bought 2 800 lumen "cheap chinese lights" 4 years ago, use them every week, have been on too many night rides to count, snow, rain, cold, 110 degrees, humidity, you name it. They were each $22 I believe. And the real kicker is they are normal flashlights so I use them all the time around the house. There is absolutely no reason to pay this much for a light. If one fails, you have a backup light, and I bring backup batteries, they each run on a standard 18650 cell. Anyone stating "cheap chinese parts" needs to quit kidding themselves! Where do you think this light is made?!? Where is 99% of the electronics in the world made?!? And bikes, carbon, nearly everything is made in China. The only difference in most cases between buying it directly from China, and in your own country with a 400-1000% markup is not as good of a warranty and yes sometimes stuff is crap, but do your homework and you'll be fine usually.

Exposure MaXx-D Mk8 light - Review
The review is lacking and the light is overpriced. How about comparing the light to ANY OTHER LIGHT on the market, or even showing the light on? There is simply no market for this. You are better off having a dual system, one mounted on helmet, one on handlebar. You will get the same light output for less than $50.

Bailey Mountain Bike Park: First Visit to the Year-Round Park
I'm more into the tech stuff too, you definitely would have liked Jumanji. Check out Windrock - Old Wind Mill trail, my favorite trail in the SE.

Bailey Mountain Bike Park: First Visit to the Year-Round Park
Our crew from FL went up a few weeks ago and it was legit. The owners are awesome and definitely have a vision and passion for the place. I'm excited to see it grow.

Ask Pinkbike: Ditching the Pack, Wheel Trouble, and Prototype Tires
Depends on the trail, if the trails are only a mile or two long and all off a hub I don't bring anything not even water sometimes. If it's a long out and back, I'll do water bottle and saddle pack, if its longer I'll do the camel back.

Video: Doerfling's Monster Line - Red Bull Rampage 2015
It's crazy how it looks so huge before he does it, then he does it and makes it look so easy. The video just doesn't do it justice.

Pinkbike Poll: What Area of Mountain Bike Technology Needs the Most Improvement?
Cheap fully integrated electronics. $50 for a switch that controls all derailleurs, chain tension, seat post, fork and shock travel, all rebound and dampening adjustments, and tire pressure. This will be the next revolutionary technology for mountain biking. Everything in the last 10 years is simply incremental. Imagine descending with setting 1: chain tension is adjusted, fork and shocks are set to fully open, rebound and compression are set, seat post is lowered, tire pressure is increased 3psi to avoid flats. At the bottom of the G-out in one flick, your bike immediate transforms into a goat with setting 2: chain tension is increased, fork goes to 75% lockout, shock to 100% lockout, rebound and compression are adjusted, seat post is raised, tire pressure is slightly decrease in the rear for better traction. Hell you could even have it GPS linked to your trail so your bike changes settings for each section of trail, this would be a game changer for racing.

Review: Pacenti PDent Handlebar and Stem
Or you just taper the bar towards you with any regular stem and you can have a negative virtual stem length, no dent needed, this is ridiculous haha.
