Off-Season Adventures With Manon Carpenter and Blake Samson
We all (well most most of us) love girls, especially pretty ones who are faster than us, but y'all need to shut the fuck up.

Pinkbike Poll - Does Fashion Trump Function?
The cool thing about fashion is: You can pick your own. Functionally, no question that wearing full length lycra is better than a tank top for that stylish whip that you might not land (your choice however, is what's cooler and is it worth it?)

Pinkbike Poll: Are Trails Becoming Too Manicured?
It would be nice to have all trail types in every area and I have been very bummed by trail work which degrades fun, rocky, rooty sections into practically wheelchair accessible highways. In Oregon, we have a pretty good trail selection. But around Bend, most (but not all) trails are of the XC/flow variety. One day, while riding one of these on my AM bike, I got passed by a very fit young lady on a cyclocross bike. Wake up call! So I built a belt drive SS 29er hardtail for that type of riding. It encourages (forces?) good line choice and smooth riding on more technical sections and handles like a race car on less techy stuff. VERY fun and I believe my "old guy bike" has helped me progress my riding on bigger bikes/more gnarly trails. Bottom line: a smaller bike increases the fun on mellower trails.

First Look: e*thirteen's TRS Race Product Line
cloverleaf, what's your relationship to E*thirteen? I had similar, very frustrating and expensive problems with E*thirteen cranks last year. Reguardless of any relationship Joebohobo and his team have with the company, I would've been glad to hear about such problems before buying the parts. Hopefully the E*thirteen's mods to the finicky install process have fixed things. The fact that they made changes seems to validate joebohobo's comment.

Pinkbike Poll: The One Bike
I've used Shimano and SRAM a fair bit. Currently, I like SRAM mostly because the bar set up is so much better. They both shift well. Shimano brakes feel nice but make hard to position my reverb remote. XO trails are excellent, especially with Hope rotors. The one place I really like Shimano above all is my XTR cranks. They are super light, strong and reliable and come in more length options than SRAM (I use 180 mm because I have long legs)

To the Point - Renton Coil Springs
Interesting. I have an RCS Ti coil on a Fox DHXRC4. Besides a .45# wt loss, the faster rebound of the Ti was the most noticable (I had to slow down the shock's damper). I thought it was due to the different modulus, not the lower mass. However, I just swapped that set up for a Cane Creek DB Air and so far, air is much nicer... Ask me Whistler this summer though.

First Ride: Santa Cruz Bronson Carbon - 650B Ripper
Carbon rims for sure IF the costs were equivalent. They make a huge diff. Reality is the jump from aluminum to carbon is 10-50%-ish for a frame but 10 fold for rims (Stan's vs. ENVE for example). Thats the part I don't get.
