Alchemy Arktos Custom - Review
I guess ISCG mounting tabs are desirable, maybe. Or you can just use a BB mounted chain guide. Given how infrequently i swap chaing guides, I actually prefer the BB mounted version. Here's one option:

Pinkbike Poll: Why Do You Trail Build?
This poll is missing the most obvious option: To have trails and features to ride A lot of people build so that there is something to ride. If trails and features don't get built, they don't exist.

Pinkbike Poll: Why Do You Trail Build?
Try crashing against a bunch of uneven ends of deck boards... you'll wish they were even. That and it is higher quality construction. Builders are artists and non-uniform decking width is just lazy.

History and Deception - Opinion
@gingerninja: No I don't think everyone will be an inconsiderate wanker. It's those that are that can ruin it for the rest of us. Nor does a general limit for ebike access to trail systems mean limiting paralyzed people. Dogs are banned in most restaurants but service dogs for blind people are allowed. It is obvious that larger batteries will be hidden in the frame. It's the cleanest design. With that in mind, it will be hard to regulate the speed of ebikes. Faster than road-legal ebikes are a reality that won't be going away. They're getting faster, cheaper and more refined every eyar. I don't think ebikes "are shit". Only that they will cause friction with other trail users. Recognizing that an ebike problem is coming doesn't mean hating ebikes. While we obviously disagree, thanks for the interesting discussion. Part of the reason for replying so many times is that I'm fascinated by the topic. I see it as becoming the most important topic for mountain bikers in the next few years.

POC Resistance Strong DH Pant - Review
Keys and phone have to be in separate pockets to avoid a scratched screen! So I ish they had more pockets. I like to carry my car keys, wallet, phone, sometimes a snack and sometimes a gopro. That's possible with two regular pockets but it doesn't appear possible with these pants.

History and Deception - Opinion
@gingerninja: putting aside how fun it is to ride ebikes, we should not be so short sided to not recognize them as motorcycles, whether pedal assisted or not. And no, fast ebikes will not be obviously different looking enough to easily ban one category but not another. Batteries will be built into the frame and there's enough space in the frame for a bike to be waaay too fast for pedestrian/cycling trails. This isn't obvious to people yet because the technology is new. Each year the bikes will get cheaper, faster, and more refined until they are sleek machines with batteries and motor hidden in the frame.
