Pinkbike Poll: Re-cycling?
This is one thing that concerns me about carbon bikes, my next bike could quite possibly be carbon and I think it's a great material up until the part breaks sure it can be recycled by a couple facilities in the world but it can only be recycled a limited number of times then it's off to the land fill it's the main thing that makes me second guess carbon over aluminum

Opinion: The Message and the Medium
While I did enjoy reading magazines, it got to the point where I only read them for the columns submitted by pro's to get a in-site into the industry, the reviews were great to but most magazines would try to fit to many into one go and leave out a lot of content. This is were pink bike excels, we are able to read good long detailed reviews on bikes every Monday, plus the race coverage I find is far better as well as they are starting to get regular columns submitted by pros. Thanks Pinkbike keep up the good content.

Vittoria's New Big Rubber - Sea Otter 2015
FuzzyL you get it, I see it as a way to switch your 29er between a regular sized tire for the summer and a "fat" for winter. I don't see how it can actually catch on for making production trail or AM bikes but who knows I've been wrong before.

The History of M
Just a fun question but we always hear this is the bike that Palmer won silver on, who won gold and what bike was he on

Waki I completely see your point but what I mean is you take two tires of the same and compare them the three inch will be slower not just in weight but also due to contact patch being so large you reach a point were the benefits do not out way the cons. they are an intermediate to fat bikes, will they have more traction you bet, will they be faster than a fat bike you also bet will they be slower than a regular sized tire this is also true. I do fail to see what you mean by weight however yes we are not talking gazzas but a 2.1 dhf is going to weigh less than a 2.3 dhf and then up to a plus size 3inch+ (an example) when using the same materials so you are still able to draw the conclusion that one will be slower than the other both due to rotational mass and rolling resistance, fat bikes are a good example they can monster truck anything but are slow. I realize there is no magic involved but you can not make larger tires out of the same material and have it lighter than the smaller sizes without compromising on strength and durability. also the road tire was an example that if wider with absolutely no limit was better than we would see 4in road tires, but we don't because they have made them wider within reason, I mean the same with mountain bikes

Also I should add that I have no problem with fat bikes, or if you want to use them as your only bike go for it. But saying plus size tires are going to make a come back does not make sense to me at all due to the costs vs advantages
