Pinkbike Poll: Mountain Biking - What Should it Cost?
I think a lot of you are forgetting the actual value of a product, apart from money. For example. The time and effort that goes into making a carbon wheel set, a full face helmet (design, paint job, construction/technology), a carbon frame and even a suspension fork, its still a lot. Of course technology is becoming better and better and the creation of one of these products is a single trip around the factory machines, making it easier and faster to create them. Although it might become easier and faster for the producer, the part that a good helmet plays in mountain biking is to protect one of the most important parts of our bodies - the head. Life comes at no cost, because you cannot repay it in any way (neither does time, that it took making the products). Although you cannot repay time, the producers are offering products that you pay for and that make up for the time spent, simply because that is their area of expertise or their passion, or because they need to make a living. Either way, I think we should acknowledge the that most of you guys seem to lowball what you think it should cost (judging from what is shown above), but that is perfectly reasonable. Of course we want our products as cheap as they get, but what I am trying to say is to not forget the products value. Mountain biking is very expensive, I agree (I mowed my whole neighborhood, raked all the leaves and cleaned all the garages after school, to get money and save up for a full suspension frame), but after all, all the products on our rides lead to allowing us to do the one thing that unites us all - our love and passion for mountain biking. Cheers and shred on :) !

A Day in Surrey Hills with Brendan Fairclough and Friends
That was epic. This really reminds me why I ride and what its all about. Sure smashing trails on your own is fun, but when you can pull of some silly shenanigans with your best buds, it makes the whole experience even better. Keep shredding! :)

This is to see what my bike is worth: Bike is clean with minor trail beat. No major dings or dents/damage. Minor scratches, scuffs, dings from regular trail riding. Components: Straitline 35mm stem Avid Juicy 7's X0 Long cage derailleur (shifts true) XT Cranks XT Front derailleur Fox rp23 (great condition) Fox Talas 32 130mm (one minor scratch) X9 shifters Bontrager Race Lite wheels (good condition) Schwalbe Hans Dampf Bontrager grips Weighs in at 29.6lbs Trek has a really good design on this frame, as the rear triangle barely responds on climbs and is really responsive on descends. The abp also helps smoothing things out on the trail. Since this is a small frame, it makes for a good city cruiser to mess around in the city with.

Pinkbike Poll: Words and Photos vs Video
Adventure trips and photo epics are simply the best. I enjoy reading the captions of the well composed shots in a big write up, where a video isn't needed because the shot tells a story of its own from the great composition. Although photos are great, an edit from the trip surely takes its place, because it can simply show more than a still.
