Video: Downhill Elementary - How to Survive Jumps and Drops
Rubbish instruction video. Common Pinkbike, keep your standards up! That's how you got to be the most popular/trusted source for mtb info. Allowing an advertiser to pay you to post something that you know is useless is how you'll end up going down hill in the respect department.

Trek Slash 9.8 - Review
32x10 is plenty for any real mountain bike racing: ie. not fireroads or pavement. I ride and race with some fast people and have never been dropped (descending or climbing) with my 32 x 10-44 setup.

Video: Strava Wars
Rad riding and loved the plot of the story! Haven't chased Strava KOMs in a while, but I still cringe when I get one of those "You've just lost you your KOM..." type emails from Strava.

Video: Downhill Unicycling, Apparently It's a Thing
Of course a unicycle is "handicapping" yourself. It definitely appeals more to people who enjoy the challenge more than worrying about "it it the fastest way up/down?" I've also spent years rock climbing and that's definitely a sport where there's usually a faster way up then the particular super-hard route you're currently working. This is probably why a lot of mountain uni riders are also climbers. Still, I love all types of biking too. All the challenges are just a bit different, but that's what keeps everything fresh. Mountain unicyclists are generally very open-minded people who could care less about what other people thing looks cool/stupid/dumb, etc.

Video: Downhill Unicycling, Apparently It's a Thing
For the past 5 years I've done almost nothing but DH, XC and road racing. I love every type of biking. However, before that I did nothing but DH/Freeride unicycle for three years. I know it's hard to imagine, but it's also a lot of fun. To those who call it "pointless" I'd counter "what is the point of riding your mountain bike in a big loop or shuttling?" Of course the point of all of these things is to have fun!

Ghost AMR Riot Lector 7 - Review
I'm curious, what did you replace your Fuel EX with that did better as an "all rounder?" Even though an all-rounder probably makes the most sense in theory, I agree that it's cool to have a bike that is really great in at least one department. I still miss my Cove STD 180 mm travel bike that I used to use as my "all rounder." Yes, I was slow as hell on the climbs (50 lbs), but it was so worth it for the downs!

Formula, Deuter, Chumba - Interbike 2014
I'm suprised at the Deuter pack. I bought the first version about 8 years ago. They haven't changed one bit other than different colors. The pack is a bit on the heavy side, but then again it does offer a solid back protector. Be aware that these packs have very little storage space! Hard pressed to carry a bulky jacket and enough food and water for an all-day bike epic. Overall, I like it for what it is. Very comfortable.

World Record Vertical Descent Attempt on Mt. 7
Good luck guys! I just road over 500 miles on my road bike in under 40 hours for the first time this past weekend (I also ride/race mountain bikes XC/trail/DH) and I still have some numbmess in a few finger tips as a result. Can't imagine what riding real DH for 24 hours will do to your bodies.

50 Years With Norco Bicycles
My first mountain bike was a Norco Big Foot from around 1988. I rode that bike alomost daily until 2005! Good memories.
