Home Field Advantage - Enduro World Series Round 5 - Winter Park
Those Enve rims has been showing cracks very often, the DT Swiss spokes and rim design in the new line are a public notice, so is better to say in aluminum rims for a while. And yes, is sad this happen to a rider making big sacrifices to ride overseas. Big props to Nico. I hope he keep going better the next stop of EWS.

VP Components Harrier Pedal - Review
@Matt76 which bike standard is that?... I rode BMX all my life without clips, started to ride my MTB without clips also, after I changed to clips and lasted many years. For Enduro and DH I ride flats with a pair of 5.10 shoes (those combo has the same amount of grip needed like clips). So I has been in all type of pedal-shoes, and no one fit best for all (in my type)...I keep mi clip pedals for some days and my flats for others. We just adapt to what fit best to each ;-)

Shocking! Mountain Bike Stolen At Gunpoint
Sadly this things happen often in my country, even this year two guys were killed by shoots by one fucker when riding in one of our amazing trails. Sometimes the life sucks.

Opinion: Why the Mountain Bike Industry Isn't Going To Listen To You
I´m still struggling in my mind this: Why if 650b was so good over 26" they never changed years ago and just now when the 29" are not received good for many people?, (remember that 650b is an old wheel size and used in many countries or commuting), that mean we were riding a wrong wheel size (26") for so many years and the bike industry was selling us the idea that 26" were the best choice. This statement still in my head all day I read that 26" are almost gone.

Schwalbe Magic Mary - Review
Don´t just read the big numbers like 2.35, 2.4 or 2.5. Look in the small letters the ISO number, if your bike is a 26" that for sure is because DH rig. look some like 559-XX the 559 mean rim size and the other the wide of the tire in mm it will give you a better idea of the wide. I don´t search any tire now by the big numbers, just read the ISO. You will see many "wide" tires that are not and some "narrow" much more fat. Cheers dudes.

Pinkbike Poll: Should We Get Rid of XC Eliminator?
Ask Brian Lopes what he think about XC Eliminator, after he was killing the other guys on it, the UCI modified the rules to avoid him winning more heats, so, if this is the kind of events that UCI will promote, best stay just with what they have.

Norco Sight Carbon 7.1 - Review
Nice bike but I refuse to change my Mojo HD160 26" for any 650b bike equipped with less than 160mm even when they say that the feeling is the same, I will stick to 26 many years more.

Video: Matt Hunter's Afghanistan Bike Check
I had clipless all my time, but for more oriented Enduro riding in the gnarly place where I ride I prefer flats, I used to ride my DH bike with flats and felt more comfortable and secure with them, when I ride my bike in more trail or xc oriented places I switch to clipless, I love both but a specific use for each, cheers dude.
