Pinkbike Hits 1 Million Followers On Instagram

Apr 22, 2020
by Brian Park  

Thank you to everyone for helping get @pinkbike to 1 million followers on Instagram! We'll be spending most of our time with Kanye now, but we won't ever forget you.

Jokes aside, we're doing a pretty massive giveaway with SRAM and RockShox to say thanks.⁠ Head over to Instagram to get in on that.

Aidan is also a part-time helmet model.

Also, a huge thanks to Aidan Oliver, who runs our social media. He's responsible for a lot of this growth over the last few years, channeling all our stories into social-media-sized pieces and always working to get the wildest stuff on there.

 Social media, the biggest contradiction in the Universe.
  • 20 1
 A guy on social media questioning the concept of social media is one of the most typical contradictions in the Universe. It’s like a Swede in Ikea restaurant on a weekend following salary, complaining how typical it is that there are so many people here when the weather is so horrible? A self picking fruit!

 @WAKIdesigns: Pinkbike comment section isn’t social media. It’s a comment section. Under articles.

 @heckler73: Thank you for proving my point for me. Content on the website isn't generated solely by users.

 @Unrealityshow: yeah because these days folks on Facebook, youtube, and Insta are busy creating their own “content”. Like selfies and reposting whatever they found somewhere else. Posting links to pro or anti- Trump articles or whether Corona was made in a Lab and even if was it on purpose. It’s not like they spend most of their time looking through the feed and commenting on what someone else has posted, an article about Meat production or deforestation or Antifa or whatever. Reposting memes on insta? Also it’s not like Pinkbikers weren’t posting pictures of their bikes and riding. What are you even trying to say? Hey I am enlightened in tge tooic of Social Media, I decide what is social and what isn’t as if someone even cared?

 @WAKIdesigns: I almost forgot about WAKI, clearly the biggest contradiction in the Universe. An expert in every subject known to man. Have all the time in the world to comment on everything, yet doesn't have the time to eat his chickenwings.

 @emponix: a matter of priorities. Everyone has their own Smile I like bikes and talking to Biking people on bike site about other things. I don’t comment anywhere else, don’t use Facebook and use insta only to browse through stuff, usually sendit videos and memes. Don’t follow News of any kind. But condescending social media on social media is always amusing to me. Like coming into a pub, buying a beer and shouting that everyone here is an idiot for ruining their health by drinking alcohol.

 @WAKIdesigns: Well that's one of your amusements. One of mine is when I'm in real life situations and macho men assume that they can own me, just because I'm a quiet guy with a little feminine side. Fights rarely happen though, most of them break during staredown. I just wrote a comment and you jumped on it because you can't help yourself. You're exactly the same as the "tough guys" I met in prison, always trying to best someone for your own amusement.

 @emponix: what? Heh no mate, I didn’t mean any malice, didn’t even mean to intimidate you, you just took it this way. Hard to convey emotion through internet. Not for me to decide whether I am a tough guy or you are feminine... society decides, although these days society is completely impaired to make any sort of judgment because... you know, they tell you that you are who you believe you are, nobody has a right to tell you. Somebody’s 120kg at 175cm? You’re beautiful! Be yourself Smile ok, I don’t like The way some Middle East societies treat women... - ehm yrm... yeah maybe, go on... - Muslims are... - there you racist bastard!!!

 @WAKIdesigns: So in other words my first comment stands. See how quickly it fell apart just now. Because we're not actually having a social conversation. We're just typing strings of words here with no possibility to read emotions or expressions. And don't worry about the malicious intimidation thing. I just used a little story from my life that is true and that's that. Let's just call it a little experiment. The world will now resume it's slow but steady rotation.

 @emponix: Yes in a weird way yes. You were right. So was I. We are both right. Huh... it was so close to a Dålig Stämning!

 @WAKIdesigns: In the words of the Black Knight: -Alright, We'll call it a draw. Not so close really. I'm not that touchy, but sometimes I like to pretend that I am. To be honest, I don't think you could agitate me even if we were in the same room. Not even with a pointy stick.

 Why are contests always run through Instagram and other social media platforms? Some people aren't into social media and are therefore excluded from these contests. What if I want to win a new Lyrik for my bike, but I'm too busy riding to bother getting connected with social media. Damn I guess I'm outta luck and some bot with 4 dozen Instagram accounts wins.

 The reason why these events are held on social media is in the name..

 @Ajorda: It's great and all that they are advertised on social media. Sure reach as many people as possible. But the actual draw doesn't have to be through the platform. Look at GMBN their giveaways are done through their website or the PB Advent Calendar. You shouldn't need an account on that particular platform to participate in things like that.
