Kali Maraka XC Helmet - Review
G8teach, There is no evidence to suggest expensive helmets protect better than cheap ones. Often, the cheaper helmets protect better because they typically have more foam (less vents, heavier), and a rounder shape that allows the head to roll easier. All helmets are certified to a standard. Your time would be better spent lecturing people to wear helmets properly than to spend more.

Opinion: Why the Mountain Bike Industry Isn't Going To Listen To You
@Spicy Mike - Exactly. Many other industries attempt to sell goofy stuff to their consumers, but ultimately fail, because no one will buy it. Mountain biking for some reason is different. I think we only have ourselves to blame for not only buying this expensive junk, but also for vehemently defending it by slinging insults at people for second guessing "innovative" new products and standards. It's time to start talking with our wallets. Put off buying the new bike for a year. Reject the new bottom bracket/axle width, handle bar diameter/headtube size/iscg/wheel size/etc. standard. Don't believe the hype folks. It's a consumerist trap.

Opinion: Is it Time to Revolt?
Kam-0-01....you hit the nail on the head. Pinkbike is getting weaker by the day. I couldn't finish reading this one. Perhaps Mr. Levy is sick of writing for pinkmountainbikeaction, pushing BS all the time. Perhaps he is the one who needs to call in sick, and give us all a day off.

Pinkbike Poll: The Local Bike Shop
I'm not aware of any LBS working on rear shocks.

Cam Zink's Big Move
It is important to remember why athletes receive the pay they do. A football player does not receive the pay they get because of their talent on the field, it is their ability to attract advertising dollars. That is how pay is doled out. Mountain bikers, whether they are risking injury or not, simply do not have the same commercial value. I don't imagine there are too many MTB fans out there who do not actually ride themselves, unlike other sports.
