Pinkbike Poll: How Far Away Are Your Closest DH Trails?
Took me a few reads to realize Telepatok and moferenc's flags are inverted... thought they were describing the same place there for a while...

Pinkbike Poll: Are You Plagued By Flat Tires?
Dallly, try the opposite. Reinforced tires with lightweight tubes. If you run thin tires, even heavy duty tubes will pinch. It's better to run a tire with a thicker carcass. Or try tubeless.

Pinkbike Poll: Are You Plagued By Flat Tires?
all of my flats since going tubeless have been because of a tear of the sidewall at the bead. what sucks is that puncture is not repairable at all. I recently had it happen to a tire that had three rides on it. I wasn't impressed. Some years are better than others. three years ago I went through about 5 tires. Last year was a good year caus' I went most of the year on the same set of tires: my only puncture was my third to last ride.

The Steps to Adventure
How do you know that's not a tube being stuck in there to repair a torn sidewall, or otherwise unfixable tire trouble?! And I'm all the people involved in this trip know what's up with tires. sheesh.

Video: Skills to Pay the Bills
was curious about those noises too... I wonder if it's the carbon wheels? There's no reason for the bike to be pinging that much... yes, he's riding hard, but still, that kind of sound is not something I've heard before...

Cam Cole Retires from International Racing
I'm surprised and a bit sad upon reading this. I hope this is a Mick Hannah-style retirement, and we see you back in a year, bigger, badder and faster than ever!

Video: Goldstein Productions - The Joy is in the Journey
Any time I see there is a movie from Goldstein, I know I am in store for some amazing visuals, stunning photography, epic views, and rad action. I remember when he was first posting videos here, usually of Squamish and Pemberton (I think), and they were awesome. They (he?) have just gotten better and better over the years... keep 'em coming.

Video: Pig Rodeo
this edit could have been half the length. I skipped the intro, skipped the gondola ride, and after three or four of the same berm shots and whips on the same terrain, I quit. looks like good fun to ride tho. was it a 24" wheel? Lighter and turnier yet still wide and grippy... could be a good combo.

Reynolds 27.5 AM Carbon Wheelset - Review
so is the elephant in the room width? "The Summit Carbon AM rims feature a boxy rim profile that measures 31 millimeters outside and 23 millimeters between the flanges - dimensions that have become the standard for most AM/trail rims on the market. " I thought the industry standard was closer to 25mm inner width, with the trend going to ever-wider (http://www.pinkbike.com/news/ibis-741-carbon-wheels-review-2014.html). so... yes, these are carbon, and at that price point there are wider carbon rims. Is it still worth investing in these skinny ones when there are equally good wider ones out there?
