Peak Leaders: Top 5 Whistler Trails
So sick. I live in Squamish and can hardly keep up with all the sick trails going in everywhere around here, let alone Whistler and Pemberton! Insane.

Onza Ibex Tire - Review
I always buy tires from sponsored friends or pinkbike buy and sell, but I also always get the softest compound I can. The tires are the only part of your bike that (hopefully) touch the ground, so they count more than anything when it comes to the handling of the bike. As long as I'm getting cheap tires, I'll change them out 4 or so times a season so I'm not scared when it's wet or dusty. I'm too old and brittle to be slamming hard because I didn't feel like shelling out $40 a few times a season. So these tires are both too expensive, and way too hard (at a crazy 65 in the middle of the tire!).

Video: The Pit
Great piece. But I'm gonna say, when someone's heading for a big hit, don't cut to the second angle just as they hit it. It's painful. As a guy that shoots all sorts of stuff all the time, the best angle is the best angle. If you have multiple cams running, they should mostly only convey images the best angle cam can't. All rules are meant to be broken, but if you break them too much it blows the flow. Still loved it.

I agree that no-one should ever use this song again after the Into the Mind trailer and movie used it. Sherpas pushed adventure cinematography to the ragged edge and this song was a critical part of that. While they didn't create the perfect ski movie, by any means, they took things to a level never seen before. Which was very hard to do with Freeride and Brainfarm breaking boundaries at the same time. So while this is a pretty decent little piece, it is unfortunately a letdown when tied to this tune.

Gonna rant here. BC is not part of the PNW. If we're talking about a whole continent, then the PNW would be Alaska. And I wouldn't get too high on Cascadia either. I don't think many British Columbians would be too keen on joining with Washington State or Oregon, although I would love to separate from the fat flatland to the east. BC is a freaking gem, and it's different than anywhere else I've ever been in the world.

Unless you live in Squamish or Vancouver or Victoria or the Sunshine Coast, or Cumberland or on Hornby.... I could go on, but you're probably getting the point. I ride 12 months a year, and ski for 6.

Banshee Phantom - Review
Yeah, they have that model. It's called the Rune. Which I have, and it rules. But not everyone wants or needs something that can go as deep into the shite as a Rune. So they have this model, which also looks to pretty much rule. These bikes are built for BC riding, so the approach is a little different than some other bike companies.

Video: My Girlfriend is a Mountain Biker
Haha. She was way better (and still is) than me for sure! I remember being super stoked cleaning one rocky 20 foot steep section then turned to see her air the whole thing going 5 times as fast as I did. Getting new tires every couple weeks and always having a pimp fresh bike was pretty sick, I have to say. I had to move from one bike and board mecca to another that was closer to civilization and airports in order to not stagnate in the Kootenay fog. There's lots of kick ass riding ladies where I live now too, (including my wife and more and more my oldest daughter). I read Lee Lau's piece a few months back that said 45% of Squamish riders are women, so guys are nearly matched for ladies in the riding world here.

ENVE M60 Forty Wheels - Review
Sure, Dave, but the M70s cracked on pinkbike when dropping "a small stepdown" that shouldn't have done anything, let alone ruin a rim, and cracked another one on a g-out that shouldn't have wrecked that rim. So I guess there's plenty of anecdotal evidence that all rims suck. If people wanna blow cash on shiny things, then more power to them, but it's hard to believe these are the "best rims in the world" when they seem to crack, and you can't tighten a spoke while you're on a ride.
