Video: The Pro's Closet Museum Series - Ned Overend
I was riding back then and can tell you that the wheel size was NOT the reason for crashing over the bars. 1. The forks were not very good and had maybe 2-3" of travel. 2. The head angles were really steep:70-72 degrees was normal. 3. The handlebars were super narrow, combined with 100-120mm super long stems. 4. The brakes didn't really stop you, they would just lock up tires until you slid into the big rock, out of control, and went otb. 5. Tires were much narrower back then, combined with the brakes control on the downhills was vague at best. 7. He forgot to mention the part about how modern full suspenison bikes basically eliminate any one wheel size being better than any other wheel size. I do love the articles, but the marketing is strong with this one.

Opinion - They're All Flawed Bikes
Yes, bikes are flawed. The flaws give the bike its character/ soul. Find a good character and you will always have good times. I needed a bike that I could put on the back of my SUV and ride it anywhere: Downieville, Santa Cruz, Tahoe, mt. Tam. I gave up weight(30lbs) for a 6.5" bike that can Climb, peddle and descend really well. I will make that trade off any day of the week.

Shimano Di2 XTR - Long-Term Review
To me, the verdict on this product will come be decided when it is released to public. Meaning: quality control will make or break this product. At this price point they can't have any sanfu's from the factories making the product.

From the Top: Chris Cocalis
The Mach 6 is on my top five bike list of bikes that I would reccomend to anyone looking to buy a bike... Enduro bikes and 27.5" bikes have been around for more than 3-5 years... The industry decided to kill 26" bikes in the last three years. And cheaper products, like press fit, are a big part of the reason why people don't like the 10k price model.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Play With Your Knobs?
I used to be in the I have no idea catagory, but I found a solution: I asked a Fox employee, at Sea Otter, what his bike settings were: He runs 30-35% rebound damping in the fork and 60-65% rebound damping in the shock. I set my bike up this way and it feels pretty good.

Video: DH and Legends Racing - Kamikaze Bike Games 2015
This is an original DH race course. Back in the day they would race down this mountain on hard tails, with little to no suspenison and friction pull brakes. They would hit speeds of 50mph... So yes, it is wide dirt path, but it's a big part of the history of our sport.

WTB's PadLoc Grip System - Interbike 2015
WTB is the same company that announced "26" wheels have been taken off the menu..." Now they follow that up with this...wtf? A product that makes you mutilate another component to be used "correctly". Go back to making good tires and saddles... Preferably in 26" sizes too.

Ask Pinkbike: Proper Chain Tension, Specialized Enduro vs. Pivot Mach 6, and Riding in Malaga, Spain
RC is best friends with most of the industry. He was there at the beginning making frames, then he became Editor of Mountain Bike Action. He made ALOT of friends along the way. But he has always been authentic.
