2016 Pinkbike Awards - Mountain Bike of the Year Nominees
@BoneDog: Current Altitude frame is unchanged since 2013. Other than the top link that now supports lower maintenance bushings and grease ports. Other more recent models are nice though.

Tech Talks: Pedal Service, Presented by Park Tool - Video
I was going to buy the cheap shimano tool to disassemble my pedals (same as the white ones in the video), but since there was a creaking problem with no play in the pedal, I decided on a ghetto solution that worked really well. I drilled a very small hole in the splined plastic sleeve that the releases the pedal axle. I drilled between the plastic spline and the pedal body, about half way between the two, and only large enough to get my needle head grease gun to get in there. There's a few millimeters between the inner surface of the sleeve and the axle, so there's a channel to push grease through. I pump a bunch of light grease (slickoleum) through, and rotate axle, tap the pedal on it's end, rotate axle, push more grease... repeat. Then sealed the hole with a small band of gorilla tape and a really small cable tie. You can barely see that it's ghetto fixed, and the pedal has lasted as long as it originally did before creaking. I fixed all 6 of my pedals this way, works great. Not a fix for a loose axle though. I still haven't encountered that in the 4 years of owning these.

Don't Panic! CMHC Signs Most of Mount Seymour Trails "No Trespassing"
Current laws in BC state that if a trail is reasonably marked as a recreational trail, the landowner/occupier is not liable for injuries unless that group has intended to injure the users (set traps). And signs or no signs, those users have the same rights as a trespasser. The situation is much different with the States and also in other parts of Canada.

The Art of Following - Opinion
I completely agree. Over the last 4 or 5 years I was riding lots, but mostly by myself. Finally moved back near all my riding buddies, and my riding is way better (more aggressive and focused). We need others to push us, or we just become complacent humans.

Now THAT Was a Bike: 1996 Klein Mantra Pro
I got into MTB in '99, in BC, so these things weren't on my radar what so ever... But this was one hell of a read. So entertainingly written!

Keeping It Fresh - Opinion
What he's saying applies to pretty much any age. It doesn't really matter that he's thirty something. It's not a competition of age, it's a mindset.

Same paint as my 1989 Norco Mini Mountaineer, when I was 9yo. Everything is cyclical.
