motorcyclists are the worst regular offenders because of their small size they get among the cyclists waiting in the ASL and their acceleration makes them dangerous to the cyclists once the light change. The other thing they commonly do is to filter into the ASL to get in front of other road vehicles waiting correctly at the back of the ASL box, instead of sitting in the traffic queue as they are legally supposed to! I've had very strong words with a number of motorcyclists recently who have put cyclist in danger with their stupid behaviour in the ASL

Dakine Nomad Pack - Review
EVOC, Osprey and Deuter all make fantastic packs that are a level beyond what Dakine are currently doing?

Ask Pinkbike - Nevegal Tire Upgrade, Converting a 26-inch Bike to 27.5-inch Wheels, and Choosing the Correct Spring
second trip I took to Vancouver, Canada I had a brand new bike with stock Nevegal tires. Canadian buddies took one look at my bike "Slippery death tires?" and gave me some used High Rollers, probably saved my life on the North Shore trails!

Inside DAKINE - At Home in Hood River
Great article. I was honoured to be on Dakine for a couple of years as a sponsored free rider. Awesome gear, especially the gloves and backpacks. Still got a number of pieces including their huge roller bag ideal for road trips.

Video: Stanton's Switchback Ti is Ready to Rip
very nice. Asked Stanton about getting one of these when I first heard about it, before getting my carbon fibre hardtail The price (even for trade customer) was very high because of the inherent cost of titanium alloy metal, which is no surprise to anyone who has bought Ti bikes or components in the past. absolutely stunning bike though :)

Pinkbike Poll: Oval Chainrings?
I've worked in a number of very high end bike shops in the UK selling primarily custom builds and high end bikes to racers and tri-athletes. We sold a lot of Rotor rings. http://ep1.pinkbike.org/p4pb8900868/p4pb8900868.jpg Speaking to the customers they definitely found improvement in their times, after developing a different pedalling style to work with the oval rings. Customers said all of their bikes (many had multiple bikes) had to be switched to oval rings, because they could not tolerate running round rings on 1 bike and oval on the 2nd bike. Have "ridden" a few bikes with ovalised rings, not owned and changed my pedalling style, so cannot comment with authority on the effect on a rider myself?
