Ibis Mojo HD3 - Review
Which is either a testament to how fucking good mountain bikes have gotten or to how much free food and craft beer they get at press camps. I'm going to assume the former; we got a lot of really, really ridiculously smart people in the industry nowadays making some kickass stuff, and I'm glad to see that it's getting nearly impossible to buy a bad bike anymore! ...Even if I can't afford them until they're 2-3 years down the line.

Pinkbike Poll: Who Introduced You to Mountain Biking?
First gave it thought after my boss at the summercamp I was working at told me about how awesome the Mammoth bike park was. A summer of oogling manufacturer webpages, pinkbike articles, and reading nearly every post on mtbr ever...I sold my cheap slightly-too-small "mountain" bike for a hundred bucks, and got my parents to cover the rest of the cost for silver/gray Cannondale F7 hardtail. I rode the shit outa that thing for a year and a half, slapped a 130mm rockshox tora and the gnarliest 2.1" tires I could find on it, went to mammoth, had a blast, met a kid with a 2007 prophet, sold my hardtail, bought the prophet, started racing XC in the So-Cal Highschool league (finishing 20/40 riders in my division two years in a row), worked in my LBS for 3 summers, and now here I am going to school up in BC with 2 bikes to my name, and hopefully a job with Giant come summer! Best damn sport ever!

Banshee Phantom - Review
Makes me think of a the enduro evolution of bikes like the GF/trek Rumblefish from a few years ago. Probably a pretty fun ride, but it's not for me.

Atlast Prodigy Neck Brace

$175 USD
Atlas Prodigy neck brace. I thought it fit when I tried it on in the store, but after two rides, I now know it is too small for my 5'7" body. I cannot return it because I threw away the packaging, so to recoup my losses a bit, it's going up for sale here. It is in practically new condition, with no scratches, no damage, and no impacts. Worn for a total of about 4 hours, was not involved in any crashes, and includes all the straps. If you're a smaller adult, or a younger rider, this brace is for you. This brace is extremely light weight and if not for the fact that It was too small for me, I doubt I would have noticed I was wearing it. Back supports are adjustable fore/aft by turning the mounting bracket around to fit different people (chest size 28-33 inches) Different sticker kits are available from Atlas if you don't like the color. Will cover 50% of shipping.

Marzocchi - Ask Us Anything
Hi Marzocchi USA! I have 2011 55 RC3 ti that, unfortunately, has a spring that's just a bit on the stiff side for my ~155 (give or take a few depending on breakfast size) pound body. I'd like to swap it for a lighter-weight titanium spring, but the cost of a new one is a bit tough for me to swallow. (yay university!) Is it possible to fit a less expensive steel spring from the non-Ti 55 in there?

As a second year geography major, I can fully assure you that unless you're doing something incredibly stupid (awesome) with your bicycle, putting a lefty of a similar A2C of your current fork on your bicycle, provided it doesn't have a HT as spindly and weak as a dry noodle, will most likely not lead to your headtube snapping off unless the bicycle has already sustained some kind of damage.

You can run a lefty on a non-cannondale frame just fine as long as you have the right steerer/adapter clamps, which cost between $90 and $200 bucks. Is it the best idea for an older frame with a straight 1 1/8" HT with minimal gusseting? Eh, not really, but a modern tapered or 1.5" HT will be fine!

Check Out #2
I do a fair bit of nightriding, and if you can only have 1 light, I personally prefer mounting it on the bar. While it doesn't give you the ability to look around corners as well, a light on the bar gives the trail much more definition, which for someone getting into night riding, I feel is more important. Get something that's at least 1000 lumens; I've had good experiences with Serfas stuff and they have pretty good price points on it all. If you decide you like night riding, get a smaller, lighter weight light for the head, like the Bontrager model listed (Which is essentially a copy of the Light and Motion Urban series). I'd skip on niterider. yes they make good stuff, but they're no longer the class leader they used to be and not worth the premium price. Also don't get the $30 ebay magicshine knockoffs. The actual magicshine ones are decent (expect about 75-80% of the stated lumens and the batteries aren't fantastic), and a good way to find out if you like night riding without dropping a ton of coin. The knockoff magicshines are...Well just don't bother.
