I think we can safely assume that 99% of the Pinkbike readership hasn't experienced anything similar to the life of an inner city kid in Baltimore. Neither have I, but I'm old enough to empathize with the desperation and lack of structure these kids deal with on a daily basis. Sure, they seem reckless and uncaring but they've lived long enough in conditions that make them think the WHOLE world is reckless and uncaring. Get em' a goddamn dirtbike track. It may not work but it's the best solution I've heard so far.

Pinkbike Product Picks
Their bite valves are so weird. As far as I can tell, they come installed wrong from the factory. Saw this on a bunch of them when I worked at REI. Most people will try and pull the bite valve out further to get more water flowing and that causes the stupid thing to fall off mid-ride. You actually have to push it all the way on and turn it if I remember correctly. Then she'll flow like a champ and you only have to wait for the inevitable leak from the zip loc top.

Bell Stoker Helmet - Review
I really don't understand why people would pay more than $100 for a trail helmet. You're not getting any more protection and the damn things are fragile. Looks like a solid product and Bells fit my enormous ugly head quite well.

Video of the Month - October 2013
This is no different than parents buying their kids hockey/lacrosse/whatever gear and driving them all over the damn country for tournaments. Are we going to hate on every kid who plays amateur soccer or takes karate? Do you know how much it costs to take a kid snowboarding? This kid is a ripper, probably better than 95% of the people commenting on this website. His sport costs the same as any other kids sport. I've got nothing but appreciation for him.

Let's hope someone has the balls to investigate and prosecute his ass now that he's out.

Oregon's Sandy Ridge Trail System
Not to mention the fact that the "environmentalists" are wasting a bunch of taxpayer money suing the Forest Service over the bike park at Timberline. Apparently building trails in a ski resort will ruin the pristine alpine wilderness.

Aaron Gwin's Prototype Demo Race Bike - Andorra World Cup
I've never understood the hail of downvotes that rain down upon Protour every other comment. The dude isn't even really trolling, he's just expressing an opinion that people disagree with. We should only be downvoting comments that detract from threads or are purposeful trolling.

Colin, you can get a nice used trailbike for around $1000 that will shred just as hard as most people's skills can handle. Works for me at least.
