2016 Pinkbike Awards - Best Value of the Year Nominees
Race Face Chester pedals should be on here. Not only are they half the price of comparable pedals but lighter too. They should be on every bike that needs OE pedals.

Pit Viper Polarized Glasses - Review
I got an unbranded pair of these with a cheap Poulan chainsaw. My favorite riding glasses were the cheap safety sun glasses my work would give us. They had the same adjustments as these which is probably why they get such good reviews. The problem with those is they were would scratch so if you breathed on them

Race Face Turbine R Wheels - Review
I was thinking the same thing. For a bit more you can have I9s which are lighter, prettier, and I'm sure stiffer. This type of product is likely aimed at OEMs. Folks look at the retail price of the rims not realizing they'll be on an online retailer the end of the year for 45% off.

Ask Pinkbike: Arktos vs Enduro, 29er Wheels, 4X Frames
Enduro 29 wheels, DT EX471's would be my #1 choice for durability. I'm fortunate to have access to plenty of demo events and these are the demo bike wheel of choice. All rounders I'd go with Stan's. I've abused a set of Arch ZTRs for the past few years. Tires measure wider on the Arch ZTR than they do on specialized Fatty 29 mm rims which are a full 10mm wider!

High Voltage: The Inside Line on Electronic Shifting and Suspension
Servos need to be reusable to get the replacement cost close to mechanical derailleur replacement. If the cost to replace a busted derailleur was withing 20% of a mechanical group I would consider it.

Guerrilla Gravity Trail Pistol - First Look
Loving the reasonable BB height with a slack HT. So many of the progressive geo bikes can't be pedaled through corners up or down

Schwalbe Nobby Nic 650B Tire Review
The Dampfs are great for technical rock filled hard pack. While the Nics are more suited to off camber, rooty, and loose terrain. Dampfs are like Racing Ralphs and the Nics are like Rocket Rons, but on steroids. The Dampfs roll faster, are more durable, heavier and pack up with mud. The Nics shed mud like crazy, lighter, eat up loose soil, they tend to fold on hard pack and fall apart on rocks. These are two completely different tires. The Dampfs blast through nasty technical rocky sections and don't slow you down on the buff parts. They never seem to get hung up on anything, stay off the breaks and on the pedals and they do the rest. The Nics have this great characteristic where they don't stall when they start to slide, they actually accelerate. So when the front starts to wash out the wheel seems to start spinning faster rather than pack up and stall. Both are great tires but they have their place. With schwalbe tires you get what you pay for. If you buy the super light race day tires you'll shred them. If you get snakeskin hard compound you'll get plenty of fast rolling miles from them but they will be a hand full in the wet. If you get the soft compound you'll have no troubles with wet roots or moss covered rocks but if you run them in the hot dry summer they will roll slow and fall apart.
