@cptstoney: well, then your shop is not busy on a regular basis. In the winter, sure, can maybe get it done. But most shops I've worked in are usually barely able to get the work done that they have scheduled for that day. It's not likely I'd be able to squeeze in a bolt removal that could very well take up to an hour to remove. Furthermore, we usually have several days of repairs scheduled.

Trek Remedy 9.9 RSL - Review
It's not an issue with a large seat tube, it's the room inside the frame of how low you can drop it before it hits the pivot inside the frame. I had a customer that even had a difficult time dropping a 125 into a Medium frame. He still had an inch before the seatpost was bottomed out, but the hose bottomed inside the frame. Went with a 9point8 over the Reverb, and was able to lower it further

And this what's a real let down of the consumer side of the bike industry. They either think that are just a little more special than everyone else or that a bike mechanic has to beg for work, and can drop everything they have already scheduled for anyone that walks in the door. Who's to say that he doesn't already have a weeks worth of work, and is actually squeezing him in to begin with. Sure, bring beer or pizza, and we'll maybe stay after to get it done. But just walking in, you are slotted in with everyone else; behind the guy who brought in 3 never used, shed ridden bikes for a tune, and the guy about to go on a 350 mile tour, or the pile of fork overhauls and brake bleeds, and so on. Usually, if a shop is busy, it's because they're are a shop people like:

HoffFEST - The Photo Epic
10 years ago all of these shots would have been flamed for being "photoshopped". It's so surreal to see how big the Fest Series and Rampage are pushing the riding in just the last few years.

Final Results - EWS Round 8, Finale Ligure
@PanCascadian: the end result was an ankle, but from what I have heard he had a pretty nasty wreck and destroyed his helmet. With any head injury they are going to take the upmost precaution to be certain he doesn't have any neck injury that could become worse in the handling of him.

Photo of the Month - September 2016
This also has a lot to do with timing on when the photo was posted, if an article was connected to the photo, and how far through the month did it become POD. I'm fairly certain that the photo most viewed was early on in the month, while Lorraine Blancher's photo was POD only a few days ago and the article was from last week. Surely not enough to time to rack up the 'points' to win, but in my opinion, is the most visually stunning and the one I'd most likely put on the wall in my living room.

Final Results - EWS Round 7: Valberg, France
@Rusettipasta: if we can't get excellent DH coverage with the help of RedBull, it would be next to impossible to provide televised coverage of Enduro. First, Enduros aren't usually in established resorts like they are in DH, where in Enduro they are in some cases considered to be true back country tracks. Just look at most of the timing areas; in Enduro they are pop-up tents with 1-2 people tracking the time, where DH has Tissot come out and set up lasers and chips, etc. Second, there is one course in DH, so film crews have weeks to set up. In Enduro, the tracks aren't usually released until the last day or two, and they are covering 3-5 different tracks in a day and they are much longer than a 3-5 min DH race. To be honest, between PinkBike, Vital, and Dirt, we are extremely lucky to get the coverage we do. Lots of hard working folk out there doing the very best possible with the given locations and resources.

Florian Nicolai's Rocky Mountain Slayer - EWS Round 7: Valberg, France
@davidsimons: Graves has been quoted on multiple occasions he hasn't weighed his bike in some time. He sets it up the way he needs to to get the job done, and low weight is not priority.
