Pinkbike Awards: Product of the Year Nominees
Back to back on a freeride bike (7"/26), which sees everything from trail to bike park duty in the wet and dry, I'd say both the Magic Mary and Minion DHF (super tacky) are nice tires. They're both soft and grippy in corners and knobs show wear quickly but the Magic Mary doesn't fly apart in 100 miles like Hans Dampf or Nobby Nic. Neither is fast rolling but the Magic Mary is faster. In combo with the Rock Razor out back (summer) or Hans Dampf in rear (winter) The Magic Mary in front out performs a Minion DHF by a noticeable degree. Product of the year? hmmm... Significant? Yes.

Opinion: 500 Euros of Freedom
@haychaser. Your right, its not a new topic. But, it seems to me that most PB content is focused on technical riding on nice (but complex) FS bikes. And Amen to that. The modern trail bike is a wonderful thing and what I ride the most. However, 3 or 4 yrs ago I was inspired to build a single speed, belt drive, hard tail by an MBA article (before RC left). That thing makes boring XC fun (family rides for example) and truly needs close to zero upkeep. Ditto for my 5 yr old DJ bike around town. If I had to chose one bike, it'd be the trail bike, but its good to be reminded of the advantages of the simple bike occasionally.

World Record Vertical Descent Attempt on Mt. 7
Recently rode 14 or 15 laps in a day at Mt. bachelor (Oregon). I think that's around 20,000 ft. Probably could do a little more at Whistler, but even so, 40K+ is a lot. Best of luck and if you can't feel your hands, take five. :)
