Here at Pinkbike we get inundated with all kinds of questions, ranging from the basic "Can I have stickers" to more in-depth, soul searching types of queries like if you should pop the question or what to name your first child. Ask Pinkbike is an occasional column where we'll be hand picking and answering questions that have been keeping readers up at night, although we'll likely steer clear of those last two and keep it more tech oriented.
Big Guy, Big Rotors?Question: @Blacker6
asked this question in the all-mountain, enduro, and cross-country forum
: I'm a big eighteen stone (252lb) lump and I'm thinking of switching to 203mm rotors. Any thoughts?
Sweating in a Giro Switchblade?Question: @Minikeum
asks in the All Mountain, Enduro & Cross-Country forum:Any feedback on the new Giro Switchblade helmet? It looks safer than other convertible helmets. Better coverage, and downhill specific certification. I'm concerned about sweat. The pads of my current helmet get filled with sweat, which ends up dripping on my sun glasses. And it is really annoying. So I'm looking for a better new helmet. Note that I don't care about the look: I am a joey, and I'm proud of it. Safety is my biggest concern.Thank you!
Disco Slippers for Downhill?Question:
Pinkbike user @ridedh10
asked this question in the Downhill
Forum: Does anyone use a very stiff XC racing clipless mountain bike shoe for DH riding? I've tried the BMX/DH shoes from Shimano but they just aren't as stiff or as nice fitting as an XC race shoe, just wondering if anyone else likes such a stiff and tight fitting shoe for DH? I wonder why more pro DH riders don't do this (or do they)?
