1Question - What's The Biggest Game Changer In The Next 10 Years?
But the opposite is true. There are endless beginner trails and only a handful of truly challenging expert trails in Charlie's (and my) area. Most of which are pseudo legal or illegal all together. No one is saying we can't build trails the way they are already being built. Charlie is saying we need to add double black options that most average riders won't try. You have to give people room to grow. Whistler would lose a ton of its business if all the black and double black runs weren't there. Its the expert riders that buy season passes, travel on a regular basis, stay in hotels, eat at restaurants. They are the ones committed to the lifestyle, so they should have trails built for them too.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Care Where a Product is Made?
The concept of globalization has allowed us to advance rapidly, but ultimately the use of energy/fuel will ruin us if we keep shipping everything such long distances. The idea of buying locally not only keeps tax revenue in state/country, but it also reduces the carbon footprint of the product you buy.

I have a brand new Intense M9 frame for sale. This will be sold as new with a warranty and you will be the original owner. I had been selling Intense frames over the past few years, mainly as frame-up custom builds. I ordered this frame last year to build up for myself and represent their brand. Things at the shop were super busy and I never found time to put it together besides pressing in a headset. I just found out that Intense has setup another shop to stock complete bikes, so I'm losing my resale privileges. I no longer have any motivation to run the brand as I can't sell them, so this beauty needs to find a home. 2014 M9 Large frame Intense Red Includes: Cane Creek Double Barrel Coil, 400 and 450lb steel springs Cane Creek 110 ZS, silver Thomson post, black Intense seatpost clamp and rear axle I hate to see it go. This thing looks so good up close, a true work of functional art. This is the last of the 26" M-series bikes, now's your chance to own the best of the breed. Cheers, Adam Schaeffer, owner Downhill Zone Bike Shop

Pinkbike Awards: Game Changer of the Year – Nominees
Even if its a one year contract, why would they dump a proven winning formula? Seems silly to finally get the program on track and then change it again.

SRAM X01 DH - Review
Cost saving tip: if you want the performance of the XO1 DH derailleur without having to buy a new freehub and that expensive cassette, they actually make a 10 speed version of the XO1 DH derailleur in both short and medium cage. I never see it advertised but I have one. You can run it with any 10 speed shifter and cassette. Works flawlessly.
