Long time MTBer. I swear I had an account on here from when I was a kid but alas this is it. Been riding/racing since 2001, mostly in Downhill.

Pinkbike Poll: Which Major Component is the Least Evolved Part of a Mountain Bike?
While the DHF is an iconic tyre and still very highly regarded, the Magic Mary is by any measure, a better performing tyre (for gravity oriented riding anyway). Granted... it took 15 years for something to beat the good ol' Minion and it was a nervous first outing on my DH bike when I put the Mary's on it. Love them both though, Minion kills it for a grippy but hard wearing rear tyre too.

Pinkbike Poll: Which Major Component is the Least Evolved Part of a Mountain Bike?
@shimstack: That's actually a pretty good observation. I'd not really given it much thought until you mentioned it, but when I huck something a little too deep, my first concern is for my wheels

Pinkbike Poll - What's Your Dream Gearbox Bike?
I've been envisioning this since the pinion gearbox arrived a couple of years ago, a gearbox 'standard' that manufacturers then incorporate into their existing frame designs. It's engineering willpower and of course a healthy dose financial commitment too. You'd "plug in" your gearbox of choice into a Nomad/Reign/Slayer/other brand bike that has been redesigned to run a GB around the bottom bracket area. The current crop of bikes with them are a leap in the right direction. Market forces have a bigger say right now than any glaring engineering problems. The Zerode feels like a 'proof of concept', kind of like a Tesla car. They're both immaculately crafted dream machines that tick most of the of boxes. There's a healthy price tag to match though.

Merida One-Sixty 8000 - Review
"comfortable on the climbs, where it masks its long travel, but it behaves like a mini-downhill bike on the descents." What a revelation!

Yea fairly well known in Australia too. Apparently some agreement with Specialised USA to not sell them.

Ryan Leech's Flat Pedal Challenge
Yea I do this too. I ride predominantly clips on my trail bike but I love to chuck my flats on a few times a year for fun.
