BMX Superstar Dave Mirra Found Dead
I had depression for 6 years and wanted to end it all, now I'm fine and have been for years. There is definately nothing more ignorant than saying suicide is a selfish act, as far as the depressed person is concerned those who want him to stay alive are the selfish ones for putting their wants ahead of his. Dave's suffering is over now and he is at peace, he must have struggled immensely inside to come to this and no body has any position to judge his actions or could possibly know what he was going through...

DVO Sapphire Forks and Topaz Air Shock - Core Bike 2016
Id like to apologise DVO, for my comment being at the top of your product release, hardly the the kind of negative crap you want everyone reading first in the comments... My frustration comes from all the new standards constantly being forced on the market, such as boost... Lets face it, the majority of people who buy this fork aftermarket will have to buy a new hub, couldn't you have just gone to 20x110mm and made everyone happy? A lot of people wouldn't have even needed new wheels and the stiffness gains would probably as good or better! I know you obviously dont spend 90% of your budget on marketing, that probably goes on tax lol, I was using an exaggerated statement. As for the cooling fins they no doubt do their job, I was a small engine and 2stroke mechanic for 7 years so I know how they work and what they do, but they look more like some 'cool idea' added as an afterthought that didn't change the shape or size of the product and made an extra selling point, a bit like a certain speaker mfr from my hometown finding some spare knurled sheet alloy and making a speaker case out of it 'because it looked cool', then the marketing dept then marketed it as a 'diamond lattice acoustic dampening matrix' or something like that and selling it for £2000 more :-@

DVO Sapphire Forks and Topaz Air Shock - Core Bike 2016
I still can't get past the impression that DVO seem to spend 90% of their budget on marketing, they were selling baseball caps with their logo before they ever even released a suspension product, these products look nice and you can tell a lot of effort has gone into the decals and graphics on them, but in most reviews the general impression seems to be they lack a bit compared to Fox, Mz, Rockshox and even Manitou's offerings - those ridges don't really class as a cooling fin!.... I know this comment will be neg propped out of existence by all their fanboys though lol.

Randoms - The Bike Place Trade Show
Anyone who disses Orange just hasn't ridden one, the quality and workmanship is awesome, they weigh next to nothing and no other bike rides so animatedly, pops so predictably and so high off every jump yet feels like it has one of those roady bike motors in the seat tube the way they accelerate so fast on their own. Absolutely love Orange bikes, wish they weren't so expensive over here in OZ!!!

Pinkbike Poll: Where Do You Want to Improve?
Use to spend all day at the jumps and had no problem hitting 30-40ft jumps on a dh track, but after suffering a few broken bones in albeit stupid crashes and now having family responsibility when it comes to income, I find jumps the hardest thing to ride, mote frustrating knowing I have the ability to hit them with ease, just haven't got the nerve any more... Jumps are my goal (again) this year!

Fox Gradient Jacket - Review
In England you do everything in the rain, going to the beach, playing football, outdoors work, hiking, even bbq's! When it rains 80% of the year, sometimes for months at a time, you have little choice! Danny Harts 2011 Champery run makes more sense when you understand this

Inside Rose Bikes
Banshee are made by pacific cycles in Taiwan, they make a lot of frames for a lot of companies, it would be a big tour!

Mavic Crossmax XL Pro Limited Wheels - Review
Ctd is crash test dummy as I was always the first to hit a new jump, 07 is the year I joined pb... I dont use a tubeless set up and get pinch flats regardless unless I use dh tyres or similar, pinch flats are perhaps more common with thinner rims, I couldn't comment either way on that, I was referring mainly to handling etc, punctures can happen regardless...
