To The Point: Understanding Bottom Brackets
Yeah I know, late to the game here. Never one to pass up shitting on stupidiotards though, here it is. That giant (sometimes 8" travel+) fvcking fork you load laterally with the radius of a 26"-27.5" wheel adding even more leverage to that pressed in headset is bearing down a hell of a lot more than your spindle does on your BB bearings. Big 180 drops with long forks that can tear the head tube right off a frame in under 3 months (yep I tore through that shit one after the other about 10 years ago along with fork steerers/stanchions) & most of the time the headsets stayed tight, unless the head tube stretched too which can't be remedied by a threaded up any better than a thicker tube. A press fit BB is no different than a typical hub with cartridge bearings. It's the same fucking thing & no one ever has problems with hubs. A hub's a hub more or less. The two most forgotten about parts on a bicycle are cartridge bearing hubs & pressed headsets. EC headsets may give problems, but done right, bearings inside the tube, nah. There's no better way. Honestly how fvcking often does a headset or a hub ever give anyone any bearing related problems besides normal wear on bearings. Next to never! Less parts is more better. A threaded cup accomplishes nothing of value. It's another joint to creak, threads to cross (& they do & if they strip, you can't fix) & in case any of you dolts never took a look inside a pricey rebuildable threaded BB, the bearings press or slide fit into the fvcking cups you dumb shits! PF is forward, not backward. If it's not done right it may seem inferior (like EVs compared to IC cars) but the opposite is true for so many OBVIOUS reasons. :s

Pinkbike Sponsors Matt Macduff
Yo, Hutch. Knowing people NEVER means someone SHOULD get sponsored. As for sociable, Duff & Sem' are probably my top two jump guys to get fired up over. Do I really need to make a comparison between which one seems more "sociable"? That comment coming from Claw is even more questionable because he's arguably more like Sem' in terms of his focus & demeanor. Matt Mac is more like C-Mac. C'mon! NO ONE else that I know of made a rad video & donated all the money made to a charity. Duffy just needs time. He's one of the raddest things goin' & everyone's noticing. Time for a frame sponsor to step up!

Ask PB: Foxy vs Mega, Fast Rolling Rear Tires, and Crank Arm Lengths
Lower weight, increased stiffness, greater ground clearance & lower torsional stresses (increased strength) all result from going shorter. That's not a crank yank, it's true!

Well I feel better about missing it now considering all the comments here. I'd love a replay but a highlight edit will be good enough. :/

Marzocchi is Dead, Long Live Marzocchi
LMFAO this is cool news!!!! I didn't know Marz was in jeopardy, but I guess I haven't seen much of them lately, which I've enjoyed. WTF happed? You came into this industry doing everything right. The original Bombers, then things like the RAC & those awesome Shivers!!!! Then you turned into the same shitty turds as the rest of the riffraff with absolute junk like my 66 VF. Plastic shit inside, dampers that don't hold adjustments, cast one-piece mag arches shaped for form rather than function that snap like twigs. Come on. I've bounced on Marz since the Z1 QR20 & I've experienced the degradation of subsequent products firsthand over the years. If you're just gonna make shit, if you're gonna be another GM or Chrysler of the bike industry, just fuck off. Just die. No government bailouts for you fortunately. We got DVO now. They know what they're doin' so bye.
