Pinkbike Poll: Protective Gear - or Not
The guys I ride with all took the mickey out of my robocop appearance at first (hardshell knee/shins and elbows) but strangely enough, within 18 months, they are now all wearing armour as well! Can't speak for everyone and each to their own but I can safely say I believe my armour had saved me from more serious injury quite a few times. Elbows and knees are important joints and even the smoothest, safest trails you can think of have the odd rock or root where, if you landed on it, you'd be in potentially serious trouble. The trouble I'd get from the missus would bit be worth it :-)

Can You Freeride a Fat Bike?
I'm with you buddy! Cool video and all, but bar the ease of access to the sport (i.e. anyone can jump on a bike but it takes a lot of money and dedication to have the ability to ski that terrain) I can't see why people would do this rather than ski or board...

Agreed for me, although both have their place ;-)

Video: Dan Atherton - Escape. Create.
Given that both would need a space helmet to breathe the sharks bite would be rendered useless.Even if it managed a bite the glass would be broken causing it to die, which is wouldn't exactly describe as winning... I therefore vote

Pinkbike Poll: Would You Pay to Play?
As someone with family who lives a good distance from my local trails in find it hard to dedicate time to trail building. My conscious makes me pay into the local trail building fund each year. It's not much, but at least I can say I'm not one of those that only reaps the fruits of someone else's labour without contributing myself. I wish more people would do that as my local trails, for the use they get, would probably be covered in gold :-)

Video: Rage Against the Night
I think it's been rebranded as now...? Are they as good as expensive lights? No. Are they 1/10th of the price? Yes! Are they superb for the minimal outlay and highly recommended for people wanting to try night riding? Yes! EBay has loads too, and shipping tends to be shorter as lights are in the same country, although you will pay a small premium over those direct from China... I wouldn't be too seduced by the power output thought, as it'll drain your battery quicker, and always have 2 (helmet and bars) in case one fails or runs out of battery, etc. They tend to have a very pronounced spot in my experience, and the batteries drain much quicker. That is where the money goes on better lights, and it depends on the individual as to whether it's better for them and affordable enough to be a worthwhile investment...

Pinkbike Poll: Should Enduro Transfer Stages Be as Tough as Pro XC Climbs?
I think it's fine to have tough transfer stages provided it is balanced. Whistler was one race of 7, and if we are only talking about the toughness of the transfers in one race then surely the others weren't as bad and that leveled the playing field a bit? To me the great thing about Enduro is that it brings together athletes from all different Mtb disciplines - some rounds will be more xc based, some more DH based. As long as the series continues to appeal to all styles of rider I don't think there is an issue...
