Pinkbike Poll: How Will You Be Spending Your Winter?
I think it's just that in places like you mention with a lot of snow, many people just choose to ski or snowboard instead and really there is nothing wrong with that. Those sports are equally as fun if you are at an equal skill level so you can't blame people for choosing the proper weapon for the given conditions.

Ask Pinkbike - Nevegal Tire Upgrade, Converting a 26-inch Bike to 27.5-inch Wheels, and Choosing the Correct Spring
You should set up your suspension however you want it. But that doesn't change the fact that there is a physical limit to how much preload you can put on a spring before you run into trouble, which is all I think the article is trying to point out. You get to a point with preload where simply switching to a stiffer spring is much more beneficial.

Yea for sure. You need to know exactly what you need before you go buying expensive Ti Springs.

Ask Pinkbike - Nevegal Tire Upgrade, Converting a 26-inch Bike to 27.5-inch Wheels, and Choosing the Correct Spring
When it comes to springs I don't think its so much about the actual weight of steel vs the weight of titanium. I'll take your word that the actual weights of the metals themselves are similar. Its the properties of the metals that allow a titanium spring to be lighter, mainly that the Ti is more flexible that steel. This means that to produce a Ti spring of the same spring weight as steel, its takes much less actual material because they can space out the coils and use less coils overall per spring. That's where the weight savings comes from. Its not that the actual material is that much lighter.

Do you think all the mountain bike videos/movies you watch are shot in one take?

I don't get this argument at all. What does his race results have to do with these videos. To again relate it to mountain biking, look at a guy like Remy Metailler, who puts out some of the most rad mountain bike videos out there. How would he place if he entered a world cup race? Do we shit on his videos because he wouldn't sniff the podium?

If cars aren't your thing thats cool. But I'm not sure how anyone on Pinkbike can sit here and complain about rehashed videos, or how he's doing the same thing just in a different location etc. I mean what exactly is most of the content on this site? Its videos of people riding bikes. Yes, the bikes change and the locations change, but ultimately most of these 'edits' are the same thing. There is nothing groundbreaking in 99% of them.

Pinkbike Poll: Who Introduced You to Mountain Biking?
It is funny how few people even realize downhill mountain biking exists. I snowboard as well at some of the same mountains that have bike parks in the summer and it's amazing how many of the winter crowd has no idea that the bike trails even exist. I can't count how many times I've been on the ski lift where some of the bike Park features are in view (jumps,drops,wall rides etc) and the skiers and snowboarders on the lift have no clue what the features are and that they are part of a bike Park.

November Online Deals
I've always had good experiences with Pricepoint as well. They run a ton of sales and have some really great prices on things if you stay on top of the sales. I've never had an issue with anything I've ever ordered and the few returns I've done have been handled without a hitch.

Specialized 2FO Flat Shoes - Review
while I personally like as much grip as possible, I can fully appreciate the idea that you can have excessive grip. I run 5.10s with LG1 pedals, which is know you be one of the most grippy combos out there, and it is, but there are times when is so grippy that my foot sticks to the pedal even when I lift straight up. I'll stop at the end of run, go to take my foot off and and get off the bike, and the pedal will stick to my foot like it's clipped in as I lift up. I can definitely see how the that would be to much grip for some.
