Injury Causes Rider and GT Marketing Manager Andrew Cho to be Paralyzed
I'm not really familiar with this injury. If his paralysis is due to a ruptured blood vessel and not an actual break of bone or the spinal chord does that mean there's a chance for reversal? Either way, good vibes!

Pinkbike Poll: How Often Do You Maintain Your Full Suspension Frame?
My E29 went into its third season before it needed a bearing swap. An expensive but totally justifiable expense on an aging bike that served me really well. I check my tire pressure every ride, and I make sure to stick a key in all my suspension bits every couple of rides - it doesn't cost anything, takes nearly no time and could save a huge headache. Why wouldn't you?

Cam McCaul's Squamish VW Adventure - Documentary
So where is the line? It's ok if he reps product and appears in movie segments to promote his sponsors but he's not allowed to be in a paid advertisement for a car? Pretty sure Vanderham did this a few months ago for Toyota and nobody said anything. Or is that excused because Tacomas are cooler? Or is all this hating how the jealousy comes out?

Cam McCaul's Squamish VW Adventure - Documentary
Dude's gotta eat. Is this really all that different from any other kind of sponsorship or ad?

Ellsworth Announces Brian Lopes As Team Rider - Press Release
There used to be some around here, like 10+ years ago when you needed a boutique brand to provide a decent bike. But then those brands started offering less and less performance and long-term support despite bigger and bigger price tags. Now you spend boutique money with the mega brands, which is an interesting turnaround.

Pinkbike Poll - How Many Days Did You Ride in 2016?
I work from home and can take off for a decent midday ride then work later. During the darker times of year this is a huge boon. I got to 105 riding days in 2016 and never had to go out in the dark.

2016 Winter Gear Review - Part Two
The Shimano MW7 shoes are amazing. I never realized how cold and miserably my feet were until they weren't. They aren't XC shoes - they're more like a winter enduro boot. The sole is soft and grippy on wet roots, rocks and snow and the cleat slot clears well. They keep everything warm and dry. Expensive but highly recommended.

Training: Time to Build the Base For Next Season
@shaun-ridefast-michael: and better, more often, and survive crashes more easily. I guess the alternative is to be less fit and able to ride less often and less hard, resting a whole lot more.

2016 Pinkbike Awards - Component of the Year Winner
My only issue with Eagle (and most 11/12 speed 1x systems) is cassette wear. I wore out three XT cassettes in 2016 - and this was frustrating even with a relatively inexpensive cassette. A $400CAD cassette is just insane. Or at least, I'd pay it if I could reasonably expect it to last two seasons. I'd also be happy for a weight penalty if that meant longer life.
