Pinkbike Awards: Best Value Product Nominees
Deore for sure should win as a "value" item. Shimano trickle down is great, providing incredible performance for the price point in their lower end lines.

Pinkbike Poll: Would You Pay to Play?
I really don't think this is a realistic vision for the future. There's still enough land that people will simply build underground again. It would be very detrimental to the progress our sport has made legitimizing itself. Locally we have many clubs who ask for voluntary memberships to fund trail building. One local group produces more new trail and does more maintenance than can possibly be funded by their club collections. I'm happy to give them $40/yr since we are getting multiple km's of new or rerouted technical single track each year. In fact I donate more than the minimum because my work/life schedule doesn't allow me to make much time to volunteer on build days. Conversely, another local club tried the strong-arm approach of requiring riders to pay-to-play on crown land (under the guise of insurance reasons) and there was a huge backlash online, rider traffic decreased and at the end of the day they aren't bringing in enough money to execute their trail plans. Universal pay-to-play would destroy our sport. Ridership decreases, fewer new riders and over time you'd see amalgamation of land management groups which could ultimately lead to fewer, homogenous trails only accessible through ever-increasing fees. Here's a better idea: have every bicycle and component manufacturer donate 1% of gross revenues to trail building clubs to cover operating costs and insurance. We'd see more trails popping up around the world than we could ride in a lifetime.

Ask Pinkbike - Warm Gloves for Winter, One-By Chainrings for XTR, and Affordable XC/Trail Rims
OK, maybe not those ones specifically - I was distracted by the shiny carbon bits and didn't read the description :) - but they have other gloves that are perfect, specifically their XC Ski line, being made for outdoor activity

Ask Pinkbike - Warm Gloves for Winter, One-By Chainrings for XTR, and Affordable XC/Trail Rims
Best gloves for activity in sub-zero temps are made by OR. There are lots of good gloves out there, but OR makes absolutely top drawer outdoor gear. My OR gloves are the best glove I've ever had and work well for biking, XC skiing, snowshoeing, boarding… heck, even stacking firewood. A little pricey, but you get every bit of your money back in performance. This model looks like a great cycling option, even has carbon guards on the knuckles: http://www.outdoorresearch.com/en/mens/gloves/piledriver-gloves-old-7112.html

Video: Biketherapy
I had to watch it again. The first time I just closed my eyes and rode in my dreams with the soundtrack in my ears

Video: Canada"U Hit Squamish
I actually like the fact that i can relate to the riding in these videos and that they're honest about what it takes to show up and film on a trail nobody in the group has ridden before. Makes it feel like a road trip, unlike other vids where you see someone just shredding a "new" trail because they rode it for days or, even worse, only rode the sections that would be used in a film so they could get some bangers.

New Record: Robbie Maddison's 185 ft Drop
Haha. Neg propped for speaking the truth. Huge jump, sure, but done on a geometrically perfect ramp to landing and not as far as a person has already done on nothing but skis. Sorry, but the stunt didn't live up to the hype for me. Heck, I believe the world record for vertical cliff drop on skis is twice the height of this moto jump. Robbie's step-up/drop in Vegas back in '08, to me, was far more impressive.

Meh, to me a drop is a vertical plunge. Show me 18.5 stories pretty much straight down and I'll be impressed.

Ghost AMR Riot Lector 7 - Review
I will never, ever buy a bike brand that totally snubbed the independents for exclusivity with tax-evading co-ops.
