Pinkbike Poll: Oval Chainrings?
Why won't the biz give racers what they really want? less sprockets on the rear cassette! Soo tired of the +1 nonsense every 3 years.

Opinion: Improvement, Innovation, and Unanticipated Consequences
Pre-disc brakes, I recall getting up to speed at Bromont in the early 1990's, applying brakes only to over-heat the rim and have the tire melt off the wire bead or tubes blow out spectacularly. Brake pads sometimes did not even last through the day. Lots of us had deep gouges in our shoe soles from jamming it into the tire behind the seat tube and above the bottom bracket to slow down enough to bail when our brakes failed. Hydraulic rim brakes were better, but the heat was still an issue for tires. Wheels did not even last as rim braking surface was ground thin by grit, high temperature and high loads. You'd be trueing a wheel only to have it fail on your jig! Even when disc brakes sucked they were such an improvement over rim nonsense.

Pinkbike Poll: Mountain Biking - What Should it Cost?
DH is almost dead in eastern Canada. The tech got unaffordable & the ski hill trails were no match for the tech because of the lawyers. Add in the real estate developers closing off land to DH (aesthetic control), and you have a perfect storm. It is like driving a Ferrari on a farm field access road - you can do it, but it is not going to be a lot of fun. The car was designed for race tracks. Love the tech, can afford some of it, but walked away two years ago because the investment was not worth it. Not impressed with "Enduro" either. Riding less tech, against all odds, is actually more fun. Picking lines over airing over features has value. If I want to fly, I hit the local jumps with a cheap DJ bike.
