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!

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?

Cannondale Jekyll 27.5 Carbon Team - Review
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.

Cannondale Jekyll 27.5 Carbon Team - Review
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!
