Pinkbike Poll: What Style of Grip Do You Prefer?
Neither...I like glue/tape on grips. I.e. Lizard Skins DSP grips....tennis racket tape...or road bar tape...

First Ride: Scott's New Gambler and Voltage FR
it's nice that you posted 559mm and 584mm...because those mean actually nothing...mount them on the same rim, put them next to each other and you'll see the difference is MAYBE 10 mm....definitely not the 1-1.5 inch difference. that measurement is the measurement at the bead...that has absolutely no impact on the overall height of the tire. My Jekyll had Der Kaisers, Nevegals, and Hans Dampfs all mounted to i9 wheels. The Bronson next to it had Enves with Nevegals...the tire at most was 10 mm taller. When I mounted DKs to my wheels, my tire height was the same as the Bronson with Nevegals, which are fairly tall tires. I'm not saying all tires are the same height...I guess somehow the internet retards missed that. My point is that you can still get all the "benefits" of a 27.5 wheel without switching to a 27.5 bike with tire choice. And if that's the case, what's the point in riding a bike that has slower, less nimble geometry than the 26" offerings? Oh, that's right...fanboys.

High Roller on the 27.5 with a Kenda Nevegal on the 26...the Nevegal was the same height when mounted and inflated to 40 psi. Look it up, 27.5 don't measure to true 27.5 height, some are 27, others are 27.25....they're vary too much. funny at all the negs....I like it. Shows how little of you have actually really ridden them all or put them side by side to compare.

27.5 is a gimmick. Any of you who say "the slightly taller tire is better rolling" are full of it. A taller/high volume tire (like a Der Kaiser as ONE of many examples) gives you at or bigger than a 27.5 wheel. I outfitted my Jekyll and sat it next to a Bronson, my tires were the same height, but without the "handles like a UPS truck" geometry that the Bronson has....which apparently is "nimble" for a 27.5. 26" may have been an arbitrary wheel choice in the beginning, but it has over 40 years of geometry tuning to dial in bikes for specific purposes...specific tracks even. You barely have, if even a 1/4 of that time refining on the other wheel sizes. Right now it's all sling shit on a wall and see what sticks for geometry. I don't care what trigonometric calculations you do to account for the larger wheel, it simply doesn't work (yet....arguably) Lots of things work great on paper but FAIL in reality...bigger wheels on bikes being one of them. 27.5 bikes handle like shit. 29" bikes handle like shit. 26 = real mtb 29 = xc (there's no doubt about it, if you xc race, you're stupid not to have a 29er simply for, if nothing else, the climbing and roll-ability) 27.5 = bigger wheel bandwagon

Video: Life Behind Bars Season 3, Episode 6 - Highland MTB Park
I like that NC never gets coverage...it keeps all the kooks out. The trails stay groomed well because you don't have too many touristy assholes beating them up, littering, and not caring if the area stays nice.

Shocking! Mountain Bike Stolen At Gunpoint
Actually, the "offensive-comment" makes no sense regardless of the race. If somebody was completely serious and called me a "punk bitch spic-jew-nigger" on the street, I could give two fucks. I would laugh and keep walking. They could get in my face and I'd give two shits all the same. It's just words...it's up to the person to react to it. If you react to a "punk bitch nigger" comment well, I guess the shoe fit then didn't it and the person calling it was right weren't they? People call names because it gets a reaction out of the person they're calling it to; and in result it ended up making the person getting name called do exactly what the name-caller wanted. Now who's the dumb one?
