Will Olson, RIP
Just awful. Human beings are so tough, yet so terribly, tragically fragile. Nothing is worth dying for and my heart goes out to Will's family, his friends and those who made every effort to keep him with us yesterday. I hope you can find some peace in the wake of such a loss. RIP.

Exclusive Ride Report: FOX Live Valve Active Suspension System
I get the escape from technology argument. There is something distinctly human about interacting with a machine you understand completely. I don't know how everything in my car, computer or phone works but when I jump on my my bike I understand, at least on a shallow level how every single component was designed, why it works, its relationship with the other parts and how to interact with it. There's a certain simplicity in that that is lost in modern life, and I think it's part of the appeal for many of us. On the other hand, I desperately want my suspension to do exactly what this article describes, so screw all that garbage I just said. If I get too philosophical I can always buy a handmade, rigid, cromoly single speed and ride it until I've rattled and exertion vomited every last thought out of my head.

Semenuk loves switching bikes mid trail and it just gets cooler every time. This doesn't even look real (heh). Wow.

Kananaskis Enduro Course Release - Osprey KR Enduro Series
Or in the preceding few days when all the out of town racers (quite reasonably) assume that they won't be killed riding up it without being ready to dive for safety at any moment.

Pinkbike Poll: Flow Trails vs. Technical Trails
What's with this vs. shit? Can't we have both? There's a point at either end of the spectrum that's garbage; trails that could be ridden on a road bike are no fun. Likewise, trails that are so rough they're faster on foot than a bike are rarely fun either, but pretty much anything in the middle is awesome. Riding the same thing day after day is boring. Ride it all!

First Look: Kona's 2016 Lineup
Wasn't the whole point of the Honzo that it was made of steel? I know it's still an option, but it's hardly the same bike in Aluminum.
