Pinkbike Poll: Mountain Biking - What Should it Cost?
It really depends on what you want, does everyone need to buy a brand new bike, no, definitely not. I like building my bikes, I've got a 6" AM build in the other room for $1500ish, used parts go a long way, and the "new technology" isn't so new and life changing that you have to have it, the same bits can be had several years old for sooooo much less money. Being smart with your build and using the resources that we are given as mountain bikers goes a long way and you can have a lot of bikes for cheap. The industry is going towards the more expensive carbon shit, and thats great, if you want to race, I don't, I just like riding my bike and am not afraid to push if my bike doesn't handle climbing well.

JumpShip 2014 Practice
Sooooo change the name if there's no boat.... I mean, they didn't even get creative with the boat idea, two barges? Jumps back and forth across a water gap? I mean, if you're goin to step it up at least keep the water aspect, that was the cool part!!

Red Bull Rampage 2014: Just the Tip - Day 1
Seriously? I thought riders wanted to go back to the "old school ways" no wood, all natural and stuff, and now they're out there with rock saws and generators? That seems so backwards to me, its not a freakin park trail, its FREERIDE, you got your shovel, and your mattock and your water and build crew, not making a freakin Buttah Pak line for your boys to train...... Ok, over and done with the rant, well kinda, Tippie made a good point, "It looks like ya'll have been out here for 3 years" Freakin new venue, great, just took three years off the life of this "zone" good job, so much for old school.

Norco, e*thirteen, Fouriers - Interbike 2014
7 speed, thats perfect, if a SS DH bike existed I would be the first to buy.... I'm not a fan of gears, they suck, too much that can go wrong and mess up your ride, that lil gear adapter might just be something I would buy, thats rad as hell!

E-bikes are the same as motorcycles, they have no business being on our trails, this movement needs to be put in its place ASAP!!!

Sony ActionCam: Thomas Vanderham and Matt Hunter - "Big Kids"
Dude, I've broken 3 GoPro's and I've gotten every single one of em replaced! Mostly its just little things like the shutter button stopped working on the last one, but from a customer service POV I have been more than pleased with mine.... Since I have all the lil hookups and shit for this camera it would be hard to switch, but I'd try it, especially if the editing software was easier to use and less gimmicky. I've got the 3 silver, and couldn't be happier, I'm not a racer, and not a pro, just a guy who likes to ride his bike and is good at breaking sh*t.....

Dude, these are my favorite pedals, they're not ridiculously expensive, you can smash em into rocks all day and they keep the feet planted

Practice eh - Mont St Anne DH World Cup 5
Dang, I agree with that "The World Cup tracks have been getting a bit freeway-ish so it's good to get some more bumps in this one!" Troy you hit the nail on the head! I'm not a WC rider, by any means, but I am a builder, and what happened to the narrow/fast/tech/nasty trails? Keep the the tape in tight, make everyone take the same line....
