You Don't Need to Learn on a Hardtail - Opinion
We have some youngsters up here who came from mx to no hard tail, straight to a full sus. ONE is only national dh champion... I bet it has nothing to do with the hard tail or lack of one he is just bloody fast. You have to live thr 40 something who knows it all... who can't ride a 2ft drop, he has been riding for 20 years though so must know more than that spotty 14 year old who hits the 30ft gaps and 10ft drops with ease....

Maxxis Aggressor Tire - Review
@Aaronhuang: would be interesting to compare them to a specialized Eskar, which is another rear tyre that performs well. Reviews are great buy they should compare to similar offerings from other manufacturers.

Pinkbike Poll: Is It Still a Mountain Bike If It Has a Motor?
The limit is only firmware controlled and has been hackedsince the beginning so they are only supplied limited. A little like if you chage your fork. This makes them dangerous. They also go up faster than the intention putting other riders in potential danger. As the go up faster the assumption may be that the rider can come down faster. This creates a further hazard. The assumption is that riders with lesser fitness are riding trails not designed for dh bikes potentialy, putting a less able rider in a potentially dangerous position. They weigh more that a trail bike and have a large mass, and will be ridden by riders without the protective helmet of a Dh rider. This puts the rider in a dangerous position.. the list goes on. They have merits for a very small disadvantaged minority but they have a greater probability of causing harm than a standard mountain bike.

Bernard Kerr's Winning Run: Red Bull Hardline - Video
Bernards run just about starts to show how hard this track is, it combines a bit of everything in 1 track, with the emphasis being on speed this time an not tricks. Props to all the riders for just getting down the track, and to those who got broken; healing vibes.

Gee's POV - Red Bull Hardline 2016
Gee is the man. People give him a hard time but you can hear how stoked he is in this video and he is hitting the family track which is the most nuts thing out there at the moment. Props to the gee mam.

Garbaruk Xtender for Shimano XT 11-speed Cassettes - Review
@rrsport: pretty sure I wasn't thinking that when I took out my xtr mech a couple of weeks ago. Going past a rock on a technical climb. Since then I have put a saint short cage in as it works with an old school 36t cassette. I only run a 33T up front as that's all you need in the UK, after that..... stay off the brakes in the corners is far more important.

Red Bull Hardline Preview 2016 - Video
I think it is fair to compare. Geeade his mark on the rampage course with some triples and big lines to wall rode that nobody else has hit and stuck. He just didn't flip or suicide anything. There was a fest rider invited to hardline last year, the consiquences of an issue on a Welsh slate hillside with the wind and rain and blindness of some of the featuresmay have put them off taking part. Val di sol is different, it's a pure rough race track, nowhere does it have a road gap or step up like hardline. Or an on off feature that is blind like hardline. We all have different opinion for what is hardest, best etc. They are all bonkers events and well done to the riders who take part.

Red Bull Hardline Preview 2016 - Video
It's interesting to have fest, rampage and hardline. All pushing the boundaries in different ways. Due to the terrain and weather I would say hardline is the big brother of the other 2.
