2 Fat 2 Furious: A Fat Bike Freeride Film
Maybe for the younger crowd.... I just can't wait until my 48 year old body goes over the bars (again) when I meet the inevitable immovable object hidden under powder (again).... Fun!

1 Question - When is Change Worth It?
"we're asking the riders to foot the bill for the shortsightedness of a relative few, and it's not fair." But it works. Mostly. I am sure Deeight will be along with some data to prove it soon.

Pinkbike Poll: Where Do You Want to Improve?
Age is a state of mind. I feel 34 not 48. Mind you, cataracts, decreased skin elasticity, farsightedness, fibrous replacement of muscle, greying, poor recall, slowed intestinal transit, prostatic hypertrophy, wrinkling, reduced cardiac reserve, decreased hearing, immunity, and vision, increased weight, liver spots (age spots), osteoporosis, decreased short-term memory and decreased stamina tend to be slightly more independent of our positive attitudes!!!!!! Yoga and denial rule. And what @skiwenric says!

Ask Pinkbike: Best BCBR Bike, Switching to a Longer Travel Fork, and Front Tire Suggestions
Who to? The industry? Yes. The question you have to ask yourself is whether you want to be taken along on whatever wave happens to be approaching. If you see youself as a consumer of the latest and greatest the industry deems fit to dangle infront of your nose, then go for it. Yet for everyone of us that takes a bite of the carrot, there will he people who are perfectly happy with what we have.

A Tribute to Pinkbike.com
Excellent artwork Waki, and even better sentiments. They echo my personal experience of life, work and family, which have pushed not only my riding far away from centre-stage, but also the time I have available to come on PB. However, when I do, it is always enlightening and entertaining, inevitably frustrating sometimes, but thanks to everyone who contributes (respectfully!!). And just in case you haven't come across it before Waki, here's "Sentiments".... Sentiments: a view or opinion that is held or expressed. "I agree with your sentiments regarding the road bridge" synonyms: view, point of view, way of thinking, feeling, attitude, thought, opinion, belief, idea "the comments in today's Daily Telegraph echo my own sentiments" Happy Holidays

unReal Trek Remedy 9.8 - Winner
Excellent! Well done johnmoore55; enjoy the ride!! Oooh, and PB, could I politely ask for some information please, and make a request for the future. The rules of this competition stated that: "This promotion is open worldwide with exceptions. The laws in some places don’t allow Teton Gravity Research and Pinkbike to run this promotion, in which case the promotion and these conditions of entry are void in those places." Very clear (ish); thanks. I would like to know though (I asked but no-one told me http://www.pinkbike.com/u/anthill/blog/enter-to-win-an-unreal-trek-remedy-98.html ) , exactly which territories that included. Why? Well, let's let Teton and PB explain. "I agree that the information I am sending to Teton Gravity Research and Pinkbike shall become the property of Teton Gravity Research, Pinkbike and Trek Bikes. I do not retain any rights in the property and agree that Teton Gravity Research, Pinkbike and Trek Bikes have no obligation whatsoever regarding this property (including no obligation to return the property, no obligation to use or not use the property, no obligation to pay for the property). I further agree that sending this information to Teton Gravity Research, Pinkbike and Trek Bikes confer no obligation of confidentiality or secrecy regarding the information.".... ...which we all know (or should know) means that we are handing over an e-mail address that we will let Teton Gravity Research and PB do with what they will. All's fair in love and internet marketing; that is how it works right? Right. No complaints there. After all, we read the rules and accept the increase in junk mail. It is a fair trade off for the chance to win a frame... assuming of course that we do not live in one of those territories. If we did, we'd just end up with more mail. So, PB, if you could let the users know exactly where "worldwide" means and list any exceptions to that in any competitions please in future; it'll save some of us in those areas not only time (albeit a little) but also future e-mail we, in all honesty, probably don't really want anyways. And, of course, stop crazies like me from imagining obviously stupid, crazy ideas like... "Those territories then... they wouldn't have been "anywhere outside USA and Canada" would they by any chance?" Crazy idea I know, yet that is how some idiots might read it. Cheers PB. Looking forward to hearing from you.
