Pinkbike's Burning Question - Should You Support Your Local Bike Shop or Buy Online?
I buy almost everything online, and had a close friendship with bike shop employees. Several times I've gone into my LBS and said I am buying X,Y, and Z. This is what I can get it for online, if you can come close...I'll buy from you. I'm happy to spend a little extra to support a GOOD shop, but 20% on a 200$ or more part is a little ridiculous. Why should "manufacturers put their foot down" for shops selling items below MSRP, a local shop doesn't have to beat internet prices...they just have to be in the same ballpark. How are they devaluing merchandise when a new Specialized Demo 8 costs 10 grand and a 2013 Honda CRF450R cost less than $8,500!!!

The Argument for Long Travel Bikes - Opinion
Big bikes are incredible, when you first get one you feel empowered. Like what was once impossible is now doable without reservation. I think a big bike on a gnarly trail is the most fun I can have. But Mikes is hands down the stronger argument. Skill is skill, Cam McCaul backflips a beach cruiser on gaps bigger than most of us even consider. You get better by riding, u can push ur limits on whatever bike u hop on, some more on hardtails, some on 8" rigs, some on motorcycles.
