It's okay Marzocchi. We can still be friends.

Pinkbike Poll: Are You Plagued By Flat Tires?
I went a year without a flat tire, and then BAM, got one a few months ago when I tore a few gashes into the tread of my tire after rolling over chunks of obsidian. Tubeless kept it alive long enough to get down the mountain, but I had to stop fairly regularly to inflate it again. Would have stuck a tube in, but my group had used all of the ones we had on other people's flats!

XMAS Contest: Win Source Hydration Prizes
Man, one of these would make an awesome replacement for my ridiculously huge camelback, while keeping a good, large reservoir! Or a good christmas gift!

Hot Off The Press: Fox Acquires Race Face and Easton Cycling
Campy gave MTB a shot in the early 90's and late 80's, most notably with their Record OR (Off-Road) lineup. Beautiful, expensive, fragile, and expensive. They sponsored Yeti's XC team way back when for a short while, and hasn't touched MTB since.

Pinkbike Awards: Innovation of the Year Nominees
Although the mountain version of Di2 is certainly cool...Electronic shifting has been around for a while. It's an iteration, not an innovation. I'd argue that the side-pull front derailers are a bigger step than mtb electronic shifting. Because lots of us still like having 2 rings, and any step to improve the performance of the FD is a good thing.

Adidas Evil Eye Evo Pro - First Look
@Fix-the-Spade, shame you never found the Grue! Could have slain that thing for some good EXP and leveled up your one-handed trackstand skill a few points! Will be buying myself some new sets soon; they're 1-2 bucks each online in all sorts of tints! Even found some with soft-touch, rubberized sides!

Adidas Evil Eye Evo Pro - First Look
I use those same style glasses, except in a tinted version! Best part: they were free! Found 'em on a picnic table in the middle of the woods! And yes, I did ask around the parking lot when I got back to see if the owner was possibly still there!

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!
