There are bike dorks and then there are bike dorks.
Today's podcast sees Gustav Gullholm, AKA Dangerholm on Instagram
, take us through some of his wildest creations. How about a sub-30lb Scott Gambler downhill bike
? Or his take on down-country, a 100mm-travel Spark that employs an ingenious dropper post integration system
that ties into the bike's rear-suspension? Of course, all of these crazy machines have also been scraped down to bare carbon... with a big ass knife. Yeah, we had questions for Gustav.
If you're a bike dork, Pinkpod 43 isn't one to miss.

Yeah, but wouldn't he save even more grams by scraping off some carbon as well?
Another of Gustav's bikes uses a heavily modified TwinLoc remote that controls not only the rear shock but also the dropper post. Oh, but not the fork.
Hosted by Mike Levy (usually) and featuring a rotating cast of the editorial team and other guests, the Pinkbike Podcast is a weekly update on all the latest stories from around the world of mountain biking, as well as some frank discussion about tech, racing, and everything in between.

But when it comes to XC training and racing it's just so good with a remote traction/lock-out system since you spend so much time out of the saddle pedaling.
1) What tires, inserts and tubeless accessories do you use on your personal bikes?
PS -I love Dangerholm just like everyone else but have to actually listen to the podcast prior to commenting on that.
I have a feeling that in 5 years we will all have some lightweight version of them - at least rear only on most bikes. Curious for you to have a group discussion on this!
Ride safe and hard Mike!
Question for them is: I see lot of love these days for fast engagement hubs. I’ve been a die hard Chris king guy for year but have recently tried i9 and newer fast engagement hubs and had reliability issues. My question is do you go for the fastest hub you can afford, or do you spend money on hubs that don’t die. Cause y’all never talk about King
I ordered 3 bikes last fall for me and the family. 2 from Rocky Mountain and 1 from Santa Cruz. Do you actually think they are going to show up in the spring? Or do you think this parts shortage will effect these companies and I will be the last to know?
How on Earth do you pay for all that trick gear (the stuff that's not supplied free anyway) on a bike shop wage?
Come for the dancing, stay for the opinionated millennial yelling at the internet.
Your frame was XXS with 22” rims, ofcourse it was light hahaha
