Ask Pinkbike: Whips, Carbon Rims, and Cracked Frames
"you are out of Trek's three year warranty for the Session, so you will struggle to get any more help from them". All I need to know is right there. Future purchase decisions taken.

Fix It Sticks Replaceable - Review
I got a set of these a few years ago when it was a kickstarter project; and I have to be honest and say that I still reach for my multitool first when I am packing for a ride. The Fix-it-sticks stay in the toolbox and are great as alternative T-wrenches at a great price.

FEST Series: Inside the Reunion
I'll add to the refreshing (for PB) brevity and honesty here.... I couldn't ever do this kind of stuff; I would end up in a wheelchair and wimp out on kickers a 10th of the size. I get more than that from this interview. The point is because other people show me what CAN be done if you put some time and effort into it and dig into your pocket if you have to, it means that I will not ever give up trying to get better either. At 47 years old, that may be pie in the sky. The thing is though, that spark for riding makes me feel 10 years younger. And it reminds me that the bike under me is just perfect for giving me that feeling. It happens to be 26 and 9 speed; I just I hope the industry keeps making components for us!

CONTEST: Win a Trek Slash with Shimano XTR!
Well said ↑ Then let's hope that Anthill have more vision than Go-Pro did in their recent competition that was roundly accused of nepotism. http://www.pinkbike.com/news/gopro-winner-announced.html

May: Good Month or Bad Month?
Friends here in Japan have been running single ring predominantly XT setups for years... and still are. XT shifters, Race Face narrow-wide ring, Shadow rear mech and 9 speed XT cassettes. Works a treat.

May: Good Month or Bad Month?
As an aside, I am all for riders to create their own media production companies.... however can anyone enlighten me as to the nature of the business model the FEST series follows? Is it @siderealwall2 ..... 1) Take shovels and money 2) Craft rider friendly course. 3) Ride it with mates. Get MTB media to attend. Sell some Tees. 4) Take POV video and go huge. and then.... 5) Get paid for the POV and image rights. Something tells me it isn't that simple!!!!!
