Pinkbike Poll: Who Has the Right of Way - the Climber or the Descender?
It is a code not a law; the climber has always had the right of way as they are using the most energy and it takes more effort to start again climbing than it does descending. Common sense dictates that individual circumstances might lead to adjusting that when two riders meet on a trail.

Jared Graves - Over a Decade with Yeti Cycles
The frame design that has a shock yoke without a lower pivot/ bushing is the flaw. The lateral flex of riding is transfered directly to the shock shaft, all the oscillation that a bushing would normally deal with, which pushes the shocks main seals in a way that they are not really designed to cope with. End state the rear shock blows up, everyone blames the shock manufacturer (have a look at how many "my Inline blew up again" threads are out there and look at what frames they are "blowing up" on, where as in reality the frame manufacturer should be paying for those warranty re-builds due to poor design.

All Stories End, Trek World Racing - Video
Sure because the Men's slopestyle and women's XC bike segment are huge. Having viewed the level of comments it seems that most Pinkbike followers think of anything other than mountain biking when ever there is an article on Emily Batty. And personally, having watched Brandon train and compete for years, including 8 Crankworx live, whilst I am full of admiration for his style and incredible ability, the thought "Oh I might go and buy a Trek bicycle" has never crossed my mind.

2016 Yeti Trans NZ and Trans BC - Sold Out
@n1ck. There is a wait list. Event rules prevent the on selling of entries. If someone can't make it the people on the wait list get priority.

GT Bicycles and Atherton Racing Part Ways
@sin0428 Except as a Pro athlete you are interacting with your public at races so you need to find a balance. If you can't handle the public duties of being a psonsored athlete there are a 100 other athletes that would love your deal just champing to take your place. If you are out due to a mechanical and walking you are not racing (although there is a good chance you could slip and die walking down Hardline!!) so it is not hard to wave back or say a quick "thank you". It is the fans that buy stuff so that sponsors can pay the athletes. A nod and a quick "thanks" or "hello" could be the difference between them purchasing your brand and another brand (who's athlete did stop and say hello or sign something) when they come to choose their next bike. Worth thinking about. Oh and I understand the face thing, some of us are just born with a serious face, even more serious when we are concentrating. I certainly do not make that mistake when I see photos of Gee, he is one of those people who could be having his own personal best day and still have a serious face. That said personally I have found the Athertons to at least be polite when they were at Crankworx and I have seen Gee smile when they were arsing around at the team truck!
