Probably not as good or smart as I think I am

Kranked Electric's EGO 45mph Santa Cruz Tallboy LTC - Sea Otter Classic 2014
Putting aside the fitness debate, the real problem is trail use conflicts. The main reason hikers and horse riders don't like mountain bikes is speed differences. You know people will ride these things on trails and it's a safe bet we'll all all lose some access if they do.

Not sure where the dentist comments are coming from lately. I like to think I'm in reasonable shape, but I seem to recall getting beat pretty convincingly by a dentist in the the Oregon Enduro series.

First Look: KS Electronic Wireless Dropper Post - Taipei Show 2014
So... Laser sights on pistols are really cool at the range... until your battery is dead. For my recreation (which I don't get to do as often as I like), I don't want a dead battery to spoil the fun.

Pinkbike Poll: Tell Us About Your Rides
Its not uncommon to read a post on Pinkbike complaining about the cost of a nice bike. Nice stuff is usually expensive. So get a (good) job! For those still in school, my (unsolicited) advice is to use your education to develop a marketable skill (pick one you can enjoy). There are always exceptions, but people well educated in science and technology tend to do well. Trades are good choices for many as well, and sometimes lucrative. However, your mind will last longer than your back, so have a plan to migrate to a planning or supervisory position as you age... Still listening? Didn't think so.

Intense Carbine 29 - Review
@Jaaaaaaaames I have a 2012 Intense Slopestyle which has the same 0.5" adjustment (6 or 6.5"). Like other Intense bikes, the adjustment does not change the static unloaded geometry but the leverage ratio (shock stroke to suspension travel) does change. But, the change in ride feel is significant. Even when the spring rate is increased to match the change in leverage ratio, 6.5" feels WAY more plush than 6" on fast/rough stuff (e.g. bike park brake bumps or rock gardens). At the same time, pedaling efficiency is noticeably reduced (so pick your priority).

Intense Carbine 29 - Review
Thx for that review Mike. Have you guys tried the Intense Spider comp 29? I thought about the Carbine to replace my 2 season old Transition Bandit 29 enduro bike, but I was worried about the longer chainstays after I rode a Tallboy LTc which I found VERY dull (steep headangle and 18inch chainstay combo?). That is a well reviewed and popular bike but if that is many folks exposure to 29'ers, its no wonder 26" riders don't like 'em). Then I took a short ride on the Spider comp which felt great (130mm rear, 67.5 deg HA w/ 140mm fork and 17.5" CS). Thoughts?

Pinkbike Product Picks
Thanks for the reveiws Mike. I'm in the market for a new dropper that will do 150mm and KS was top of the list. I own some 125mm reverbs which I love when they work but they break every 10-11 mos like clockwork and aren't very user serviceable ($350 at my LBS for the last repair-they sent it in to SRAM- $350!). Anyhow, that made me look elsewhere. So does the KS LEV with the collar cable have any of those probs? Also Vaults are really nice but I did bend an axle on my first set.

Video: Freeriding Motorbikes
Well that was really cool. MTB x 10. And people tell me I'M nuts! Just showed that to my wife (my point was how safe my mountain biking habit is). I didn't point out that the equipment isn't cheaper but overall prob still is cheaper when factor in the kinetic energy and expense of injury if you have a job.
