Cane Creek Factory Tour
I agree mostly. But we pay the premium for the this kind of assembly and assembly location. No mention of PFMEA, DFM, 6 sigma... etc. etc.. those are not the kind of things you would expect to see on Pinkbike. Plus cane creek won't have the workforce size for manufacturing that you see in mainstream industry. Gotta say... I love my CCDB coil and my 2 airs. Just wish canr creek could knock me up a body to work with the Nomad Mk2 push link (only fox fits).

Race Face Atlas Cinch Crankset - Review
Pinkbike should add a table of q factor to cranks. Makes a big difference on how cranks ride. Narrower for climbing... wider for descending (obviously a generalisation). http://www.murray-white.net/cycling/Cranksets_2-piece_road_triples.jpg http://www.cyclingweekly.co.uk/news/latest-news/what-is-q-factor-and-does-it-make-a-difference-187403 What specialized say on 1 website about pedalling a fat bike compared to what is said on pinkbike is just amusing.

Randoms - The Bike Place Trade Show
Having ridden a few oranges. Their trail bikes are very flexible compared to some others. But... I have a V10 now as my dh bike and came from a pulse. The v10 is flexible compared to the pulse. Same can be said with my nomad compared to my NP mega. Different manufacturers build in different amounts of flex.

What's the Difference? Neko Mulally's vs. Brendan Fairclough's Scott Gamblers
The motor cross argument is a strange one. We have a pal who is pretty good at motocross and can't understand why downhiller run their fork so stiff. You change a 40 progression curve by adding spacers to the air chamber. More spacers... more progressive. Just like the manual says :) Funny how many people spend a fortune on a fork but don't read the manual.

The sag means nothing without knowing what spacers he is running in the air cart. Also is he talking about sag before applying compression damping or after. I imagine he is talking about post damping and probably running the fork slightly digressive which means less sag.

Pinkbike Awards: Male Athlete of the Year Nominations
When the dh boys had a few views on the Internet. 1 rider shut the Internet down. You can't look past Danny Mac. But you are pinkbike... so of course you can. I suppose when he looks at the figures and at the bank account. Danny knows he is the winner. Must be very difficult to pick for the guys in pinkbike. I know I could not do it.... My 1,2,3 1. Danny - that video impact. 2. Semenuk - competition and thst video segment 3. Gwin - that chain less run. Although Akrig is still my personal favourite, he just does not have the impact of others. :)
