Sam Hill's Nukeproof Mega and Prototype DH Bike - Crankworx Rotorua
From this pic and others I've seen of the new pulse, its aesthetics resemble an intense 951. A good thing IMO. ...i said "aesthetics" and "resemble". Not suspension and identical. So if any of you little know it all shits start slamming me on the difference between the bikes ill reach the the screen and slap you.

Aaron Gwin's Modified Specialized Demo
@Protour- finally, someone else that see the shortcomings of Specialized. Any time I've ever mentioned how poor their bikes perform, Im slammed with insults. Aside from riding one you can even see in slow motion film how poorly their demo (the last few versions) reacts to the ground, compared to the other high end bikes out there. They made a huge jump in the right direction when they ditched the double chain stay design. What a disgusting and unnecessary design in terms of un-sprung weight that was. However Theres been some issue with Spec's management of their WC DH team and management in general. After this last season Eric Carter was able to turn it around for the better. Although they werent the best team out there, he was able to give the riders some stability and comradery too, and improve on past year team results. So what does Spec. do? they can him because he doesn't fit the corporate model with power point presentations and numbers that Spec's NEW manager wants to see. Of course this also plays into the mental game along with not be confident in your bike. Im guessing Gwin will stay put for a while. Im sure the money is great. Hopefully Spec can figure out something that works for them. http://www.pinkbike.com/news/interview-eric-carters-magic-season.html

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Do Trail Work?
bunch of fibbers on this pole. even in my home town there a few people that claim to be builders but you never see them anywhere or result of their hard work. the general mix I'd say is most riders go out a couple times a year and do some basic maintenance. Which is enough to keep our trials clear and runnin, so no complaints here. Thats better than everyone expecting only a couple people to do it all.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Care Where a Product is Made?
was more referring to replacement parts. OEM parts meet quality requirements set by the vehicle maker. I've had several active auto mechanics tell me the same thing about replacement parts. primarily replacement seals/gaskets, alternators, water pumps and power steering pumps should be avoided when possible.

Pinkbike Award Winner: Product of the Year
you could always go buy a cheap small portable air tank and use ANY pump you want to charge it. But this is quite a nice compact package. wonder how it would do against large volume DH tires.
