Why I'm Leaving Pinkbike
Hey Amanda, I read this a couple days ago and wanted to ask everyone internally about all discussions anyone had with you as there are pretty harsh statements and want to find out the issues. I don't quite understand how you're reaching a bunch of conclusions and making some pretty harsh inferences. I would love some clarification. What do you mean by behind the scenes you were admonished for commenting? Have you ever reached out to anyone at Pinkbike about any abusive comments? Reported any comments? Do you have any examples of discussions you've had with any staff members? No staffer has found anything about you reaching out to report or discuss any of this. You mention that your final indictment was in August 2014...indictment in what? When did someone at Pinkbike accuse you of doing anything wrong? Did you ever talk with Mike about that comment, or any other staffer? How did you reach any conclusion that anyone at Pinkbike had any issue with it/you? You again mention that you were shut down, given "pedestrian answers" to your articles. Someone forwarded me discussions you had with editors where they emailed you about potential changes. In multiple cases providing meaningful and thorough justification. In both instances you ceased the discussion. The discussions ended, because you never wrote back. You said you "emailed more, insisting on an answer". Who did you email? Did you ever email/skype/anything an editor about why something wasn't posted? No editor has received an email from you in over a year besides the examples above. Really perplexed as to what you could be talking about. When you mention this "As I'm currently waiting on a response to my final email I sent a few days ago". Do you mean the email that you sent Saturday afternoon? and then wrote this blog the day after. It was the first and ONLY email you mention anything about "feeling stonewalled". Besides Saturday, when/where did you ever communicate ANYTHING about being muzzled?? There were several of your articles that ran in the last 6 months, they were good, merited publication. There were several that didn't. Some went up, some didn't. You've never asked anyone why, editors have reached out to you though. You discuss an instance that one editor just told you to do more "research" as if he brushed you aside. This is that discussion, http://www.pinkbike.com/photo/12230005/ It just seems egregiously disingenuous to say you weren't given any explanations. We are continually increasing the amount of female editors and contributors on Pinkbike, and we're proud that they are helping direct a positive voice for women in cycling through Pinkbike. Their efforts are creating more female content, readers and riders in the sport. The major issue I take with this is that this is a serious discussion and you've made claims and statements that simply are not true. No one ever takes these things lightly. But you paint a picture that you have been communicating these things, that the editors have been ignoring you, telling you to stop speaking out, make assumptions that you're work wasn't posted because you were a female or were somehow being shut down. I can't find anything that supports that. You can send me a private message at karl@pinkbike.com as well.

Hi Karl-Burkat, My Name is Daniel Lacey I,m a graphic design student L5 at The University Of Salford, United Kingdom (MEDIA CITY UK) and an avid DH mountain biker from the Northwest, Uk. I was wondering,Im currently doing a University Project of my own choice for future job opportunities and was looking if this is a possible option in the future, to create a mock-up design MAGAZINE to the same quality as DIRT MAGAZINE? But with PINK BIKE content? And would like your thought on this matter. My e-mail address is d.m.lacey@edu.salford.ac.uk
