Pinkbike Poll: Did you pay full price for your last bike?
I only clicked through cos I was curious how many folks here checked the "in the bike industry" option. Perhaps the buying habits of the guys working at the bike shop are of less interest to pb.

Sequence Saturday 40
Past me was a dick. He was selfish, and I suffer for it everyday. I'm not looking to screw over future me anymore, so I pad up when I'm getting crazy, so I can keep getting crazy.

Pinkbike Product Picks
I had Treks lead tire designer in the shop the other day, and I picked his brain real good. In his words, they listed a benchmark tire in each category, and set out to beat it. Obviously, a few of their tires look similar to other stuff out there. He said that they looked at the modifications that the DH team was doing to the Minions they were using, and tried to mimic a cut tire out of the box. Stop getting hung up on width. These tires measure to the size listed on the sidewall. Maxxis is notoriously optimistic with their measurements, and their 2.5 measure out much closer to 2.35, which is why Bonty chose 2.35 actual as their first size.

Hark. The angels song floated down the earth and right into my earballs, beseeching me to procure the 24" snow camo sun ringle singletrack rims the moment I saw them. The white Halo's(spokes) were also a big part of the chorus in the angels jam. Finally, two ancient cylindrical tablets, reading Saint m800(20mm/135mm) descended from the heavens. Behold, majesty even the infallible electroic mind of my camera cannot comprehend. Brand new, pro built, got three 160mm rotors since they're proprietary. Will ship. Someone please ride these.

Mark Webb - Short Stories.
I saw the Dew Tour in Chicago, and he was the rider that stood out the most to me. He looked like he was having more fun on the bike than any of the others, like he had that much fun at every stop on the tour.

Sam Reynolds Bike Check
Not only did they pry a set of rims off of Reynolds, but they got them drilled to 32h. I seriously doubt that rim will let go unless it gets run with low pressure. They got this bike right, strong in the middle, light on the ends.
