Video: Downhill Unicycling, Apparently It's a Thing
Is there an enduro specific version available. I hear the DH models climb like shit.

Opinion: Mountain Bike Movies - Are You Still Stoked?
I love the 'This is Peaty" videos but man do they need to normalize the volume on those videos.

Opinion: Mountain Bike Movies - Are You Still Stoked?
It's interesting reading through the comments here and see how people interpret what was written the way they want to regardless of what was actually said. Like someone above commented: "I think the reason this article rubs some people the wrong way is all this talk of "real" or "true" mountain biking". Even going so far as to put the words real and true in quotes, but I don't think Levy mentioned either of those things at all. And below another commenter deduced from the article that Levy wants to watch videos of 'Joe blow riding enduro'. Which if you read the piece is just absurd. I mean agree with the opinion or don't, but at least read it and evaluate it fairly.

Opinion: Mountain Bike Movies - Are You Still Stoked?
"Put the best riders in the world on their trail bikes and film them shredding a goddamn trail. Film them riding singletrack that we could all enjoy, but at a speed that makes us go ''holy shit, that guy is really moving!'' Film them drifting through corners, manualling for longer than seems possible, and generally have a blast on their bikes in much the same way most of us do, only better." I'm not sure exactly how you concluded that Levy wants to watch "joe-blow riding enduro".

Opinion: Mountain Bike Movies - Are You Still Stoked?
There is definitely something to be said about the familiarity aspect and being able to directly relate to what's going in the videos. Case and point, I think the thing that gets me most pumped to ride are edits and vids from local riders on my local trails / parks. Even though the rides aren't the best in the world, watching guys rip trails I have ridden, and can actually pick up and go ride at any time will always get me most pumped.

POC ESC East Coast Super Championships: Mountain Creek Bike Park
You can definitely ride even though the races are going on. The races generally don't effect much besides the trails the race is on. Other than having to stop and cross the track here and there you barely notice it.

Pinkbike Poll: Should Enduro Transfer Stages Be as Tough as Pro XC Climbs?
I think the real question is how much the climbs/transfers should effect the outcome, not if they effect the outcome. It has to mean something. If you don't make it anything more than a leisurely climb then what exactly is the point? Just shuttle everyone up or use a lift and call it multi-stage DH. It has to be difficult enough that it at least tests the endurance of the riders and keeps them on bikes in the 150mm range.

Opinion: Do You Suffer From Bike Envy?
I personally agree with whoever it was that mentioned reverse bike envy. I'm just an average weekend warrior type rider and to be honest I would feel like a complete idiot rolling up to the lift line with an $11k bike considering my relative lack of skill. I would almost feel embarrassed to be riding that type of bike while people on bike 1/3 of the price are shredding twice as hard. I mean I have a nice solid bike, and I'm a decent rider, but its nothing ridiculous or anything that stands out because I really don't want to draw the attention to my (lack of) skill.
