First Look: iXS Xult Full Face Helmet
Expensive helmet with less protection than the real thing - for not downhill savy xc-bikers riding an enduro-bike with limited suspension and light tires on a dh-track. Yeah...it all makes total sense...

Scott Voltage FR 710 - Review
High pivot works well. On my old Voltage were two shock positions. The dj-setting would give harsh initial travel. Also the rear was a bit too flexy. Soft spring and soft damper setting made it perform flawless. The low bb is amazing.

First Look: Lindarets ReMount Remote Dropper Adapter
Things sticking out from handlebars...painful. Still a stupid idea.

Pinkbike Poll: What will you be riding in the bike park this year?
Wishful thinking and bike-industry...Folding dh and xc in one still not working out after 20 years of trying. The idiots keep trying. Time better spent churning out two lines of great bikes. Small minds.

Mark Matthews Fundraiser: Winners Announced
it will be the second best healthcare and costeffective system with President Obama adapting the swiss healthcare model. Still a long way off...give him a lot of credit. He is already saving millions of American lives with his program...and its not opportunity that the US is founded on but compassion, egality, pursuit of happiness and rule of law. You write opportunity but actually mean your own individualistic opportunism. And you dont love capitalism - you enjoy supply side driven consumerism because your ability to accrue debt is not impaired...by a huge medical bill...

Ask Pinkbike: Used Carbon, Shoe Advice, Replacement Cranks and Super Gravity Tires
Steel it is. Next best is large volume hydroformed frames. Carbon is not a safe material for dirt bikes where impact resistance is a key demand. Carbon is an upmarketing strategy but not viable frame-engineering.

Old is New: BMC Teamelite 01 introduces Micro Travel Technology
Didn't work shit back then, still not good today. Now with cartwheels and no flexstem. Something for the lycra crowd. Next.

Kirk Pacenti Revolutionizes Short Stems... With a Hammer - Sea Otter 2015
Rotating handlebar backward puts weightbias to rear. Good for sandy and slimy conditions. Forward - more reach and stack and grippier steering /braking. All done on a short thomson direct mount stem. No proprietary and expensive dent needed. Stupid solution...

Prototype Devinci and Radon Bikes, New Lapierre Colours, and Trick FOX Springs - Lourdes World Cup
Reduce the springrate and the diameter of the spring wire is smaller. My 150lb spring is massively lighter than my 450lb. Tubing, channeling might be another way to save weight.
