Roval Traverse SL Fattie Wheelset - Review
@MDRipper: I road 13,000 miles last year (although 1/2 was road bike, so probably around 8,000 if it was all dirt). 5,000 mi on dirt is normal for most of my friends. I can ride almost everyday where I live and average 20 hours per week.

Opinion: The Bearded Woman
E-bikes, e-scooters, e-skateboards or anything else that isn't 100% human powered is in a different category from "bikes." It's a really easy, black-and-white distinction in my opinion.

Opinion: The Bearded Woman
I'm also a unicylist (mountain) and biker (DH, XC and road) and agree with Xyphota. Mountain unicycling is a lot more like trials riding or rock climbing (I'm also a climber). I understand why people look at it and think it wouldn't be fun, but it's really something you just have to do to understand.

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.
