Told you! haha. I need to try cleaning mine out and seeing what I can do. Been so busy it's still sitting in my shops garbage.

Pinkbike Poll: Who Has the Right of Way - the Climber or the Descender?
The most agreed upon solution, and the one that's printed on more trail heads than any other, is that the uphill rider has right of way. For various reasons, but the main one being it's much harder to get back into a climb than it is to simply release the brakes and have at it. This is for sanctioned trails. For DH trails there shouldn't even be someone coming up, and for jumpline /technical downhill trails the uphill rider should move out of the way. This is common sense and seems only misunderstood by weekend warriors/kids. It's printed on trail heads the world over.

Pinkbike Awards: Highlight of the Year - Nominees
Loics win was the highlight of the season, in terms of what we all wanted. But you simply can't top a chainless DH race WIN. Gwin wins hands down. B.S. had a great video but it's not exactly a highlight compared to these other two, where it is one shot at the highest pressure. Chainless win, no brainer.

Bikepacking Down and Out and Up in Arizona
I agree on that. They could just list it trail by trail. Maybe they are concerned with liability.

Bikepacking Down and Out and Up in Arizona
That's what I hear ^. Lots of slickrock there too apparently. I'll be down later this year for some riding, more than likely.

Bikepacking Down and Out and Up in Arizona
I hear you on the Sedona part. It was entertaining to visit, coming from a cold, cynical city like Toronto. Privilege? Not really, unless ignorance is privilege in which case it's one anyone can enjoy ;) Actually found all the yokels friendly and nice once you get past the appearance and 'high-caliber-assault-machinegun-rocketlauncher'.

Bikepacking Down and Out and Up in Arizona
I've heard a lot of good riding exists around Sedona. Been there for hikes through Zion, Bryce, CG, etc, but didn't take my bike. Now I need to take my bike there or rent one.

The concern with the canyon is the trails aren't very wide, and there is danger of falling off when horses/donkeys are coming the other way. I'm sure you've experienced bad trail etiquette, so image that when there's a 100ft cliff 3 feet from your left. I'm glad there isn't a dozen tourists flying down the hiking trails on rental bikes, having been there. Lots of riding around so it's no loss.

Pinkbike Poll: What's Next?
Don't forget this needs to be made of a proprietary blend of aluminum (that equals 6061) with the acronym HAAA (Highly Advanced Aluminum Alloy). Another idea is to bond all the components together, so you can just replace the entire bike when something fails/wears out. Just a thought. We could call this SUCKERS (Single Use Component Kinematic Erosion Replacement System)
