Inside Industry Nine Components
So far perfect reliability from my I9 Trail 24, 29er wheels after two years of hard use. At 1435g for the set (I weighed them), they are lighter than my carbon Dura-Ace road wheel set!

Riding Four Fourteeners in a Day
Thanks for sharing. Doing a number of these peaks is now on my "to-do" list. I'm closer to the Sierra-Nevadas and the only 14er I know of where it is permissible (and possible) to ride a mountain bike on is White Mountain. I'm planning to ride from Death Valley (-250 ft) to this summit in one big ride sometime summer 2015 when the snow is gone from the high peaks. These Colorado peaks look a lot more epic than the White Mountain jeep trail to the top.

Pinkbike Poll: Oval Chainrings?
Agreed and my point exactly above. I don't understand the point of poll questions worded in a way that mainly force people to pick the same answer.

Pinkbike Poll: Oval Chainrings?
@RC^^^ If it were scientifically proven that flats were more efficient than clips (whatever that means) then I think people would switch to flats. Of course, the exact opposite has been well established (through consistently faster race times by pros) and this is why people mostly use clips except for in the case of DH/dirt-jumping where there are other concerns than pure power. I think it will be difficult to prove "scientifically" that asymmetrical rings are better since it's going to be very difficult to isolate exactly what's going on since this is complex human anatomy we're talking about. I still don't really understand the point of your poll question still. If something proves to be better, many people will switch to it over time. In this case the "proving" is going to be difficult. I agree with you that the discussion is worthy, but your poll question pretty much backs people into a corner, hence predictable massive single bar in the poll.

Pinkbike Poll: Oval Chainrings?
Good article, but the poll question is pointless: basically you are asking people if they would choose something that was proven to be better. Of course, a person would be an idiot not to choose something was proven/widely accepted to be better. It's like asking: "If it were proven that drinking wood-alcohol causes blindness, would you continue to drink wood alcohol?" I said "no" because dumb questions deserve dumb answers.

Reynolds 27.5 AM Carbon Wheelset - Review
@trillot, good point. I forgot about the Ibis wheel review. Sad that this is the consequence of PB becoming so commercially successful---they have to be very careful not to do any head-to-head comparisons. Can't remember the last time PB did a real product comparison other than to say essentially "both products are equally great!"

Reynolds 27.5 AM Carbon Wheelset - Review
I agree with you. PB has been rather inconsistent when talking about rim widths. I think they are fans of wider, but I also think PB is more and more concerned about offending advertisers and so they hold back from harsher criticisms such as "too skinny to recommend for a 2K AM wheelset." Prime example of this was last year when Mavic's latest AM rim was something like 21mm and RC said nothing about how skinny they are when weeks earlier he posted a big article on the advantages of wider rims. Obviously didn't want to tick off Mavic.

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.
