Want to Teach Mountain Biking in Whistler?
I guarantee you that your experience is far from the norm. I guided in Vancouver for 4 summers, and 95% it was pretty elementary stuff and slow runs down blue trails. Don't get me wrong it's still riding and you still have fun, but there is a very large difference between riding for you, and riding for someone else. also almost all Canadian schools are under 5000$, provided you're a Canadian citizen.

Want to Teach Mountain Biking in Whistler?
Gotta love the bike industry, hey wanna pay 5000$ to maybe get a job thats a few $ more than minimum wage? What's that you flew here with your bike as well? didn't get the job? shoot! The argument that you're getting paid to ride doesn't hold much validity either, you're getting paid to follow rental riders down easy does it and fix their flats, you're essentially a sherpa of the bike park, except for the fact that you need a 5000$ rig which you buy and maintain to do your job. for christ sakes the course costs more than tuition for a semester at university! Dear internationals that want to experience Whistler for a season, come here and get a serving job. You'll meet more people, make more money, it won't cost you 5000$ to maybe get hired, you work at night so you can shred all day. And perhaps most importantly your bike won't get thundered, and you won't go through a million sets of minions following fat people and small children down crank it up.

Nukeproof Mega AM 275 - Review
They described it as a bike that corners poorly, and grudgingly goes uphill, but rips the down. Isn't that more or less what a freeride bike is? I'm not writing the bike off and saying that its a pile of garbage, on the right terrain, in the right hands it's probably a bunch of fun. But relative to the weight, and versatility of what the competition is putting out, especially at this price point the bike seems rather lacklustre. It just seems a silly product to put out, when nukeproof has positioned itself as a brand that delivers greater value, via its distribution through CRC. Hell the new process 153 DL is $150 cheaper, better spec'd, and will be sold at a real live bike shop that can handle maintenance and warranty issues...

Nukeproof Mega AM 275 - Review
overpriced, and overweight. And by all indications it doesn't shred the turns. Nukeproof have essentially made a freeride bike, called it an enduro bike and then charged $1500 to much for it. I've got a large 650b aluminum range, thats 2x10 with x7 cranks, a 36mm x fusion fork, and some hefty fsa gravity bits... its still lighter than this thing.

Talking 650B DH Bikes with Trek
For the love of god, can everyone just try a 27.5 before having the SUPER ULTIMATE discussion ending opinion on whether its a good idea or not. The bottom line is not only do bigger wheels make a lot of sense, they are just as much fun to ride as 26' wheels. Side note, I think companies really should consider wheels size relative to the size of the bike and the size of the rider. Especially for technical riding styles like dh, you know make small and medium frames with 26 wheels, and large and xl frames with 650.

Mojo Pro Bike Clinic, Clips VS Flats with Neil Donoghue
Clips are scarier but way, way faster from a racing standpoint. You can pedal sooner out of corners, and in the rough. You can shift in the air. Your feet are always where they need to be. Your ability to move the bike drastically increases because your literally stuck to it. Yes its scary, and yes people will still site sam hill, but the last time sam won anything was champs in 10', yes bulldog won in 2012 on flats, but really? Thats 2 wins in the last 3 WC seasons on flats....
