Danny MacAskill: Aviemore Spring - Video
Great video, but perhaps not the best promo for a cleaning product. There's no dirt in it!

Greg’s Epic, A Tallboy Tale - Video
Scenery and soundtrack made a nice change from the usual. Of course the riding was good too

Pit News - Lourdes DH World Cup 2016
Obviously the best way to keep some documents secret is to print them out and write SECRET in big letters on the cover.

Pinkbike Poll: Are Rear Derailleurs Reliable?
Last broke a derailleur ~5 years ago, so reliability not a huge concern, and as others say you can still bodge a single speed as long as you've got a chain splitter with you. One advantage of the derailleur system is that a fairly basic mechanic with just a few tools (me) can replace all the gears when they wear out. Presumably with a gearbox the gears wear out less often and only two of them would need replacing when you swapped a chain. But that's offset by the complexity of maintaining the gearbox itself Dunno, I'm not convinced. Yet.

Cavalerie Anakin - Review
I'd be unlikely to go for something this exotic (and expensive) but that was quite an interesting review. I do find that I spend a lot more time tinkering with my bike than I did ten years ago. Sticky dropper posts, pressfit BBs, and tubeless tyre troubleshooting all add to the maintenance overhead of running a bike ( though at least 2 of those things save you time once you're out riding) Would a gearbox bike save me much "workshop time"? I'm not sure it would, but that would be my main motivation for looking into the idea further

In Memoriam: Kelly McGarry
I've never pressed the down vote button with such precision. What a complete arse.

In Memoriam: Kelly McGarry
RIP, and sincere condolences to all Kelly's family and friends. I'm not a free rider and don't follow that aspect of the sport too closely, but he was one of the riders who managed to make a real impact on me. A big star and a big loss to all of MTB :(

Pinkbike Awards - Female Athlete of the Year Nominees
T-Mo, but as others say Neff should be recognised in the list, and Pauline FP too

Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Expert Carbon 6Fattie - Review
yeah I can't remember the last time I rode in anything other than mud! I think I'd have got about 6 weeks riding out of this bike in the last year

Aaron Gwin and Specialized Part Ways - Here's Why
As far as I can tell most WC racers outside the men's top 15 and the women's top 5 are barely making a living. It's fair enough for Aaron to bargain for what he sees as an appropriate wage, but to be honest I'd rather see the big brands running bigger teams and supporting more up and coming talent than offering huge wages to the top 2 or 3 riders. If, as some commenters suggest, they've swapped gwin for loic and vergier, then that sounds like a smart deal to me
