Pinkbike Poll: Are Your Local Trails Challenging Enough?
This is the northern Virginia region around DC... 2 mile strip of land somehow gets turned into a 17 mile trail... hats off to the creativity of the builders but it'd be nice not to cross the same bridge on three "different" legs of the trail.

E*Thirteen LG1r Carbon Rims on DTSwiss 240 Hubs

$750 USD
I had these built in spring 2018 for a Knolly Delirium but broke my collar bone and didn't get to ride much the rest of that season. I parted out the bike that fall and have been sitting on these ever since with hope to put them to use. But at 6'5 I just don't see myself ever going back to 27'5 so it's time to get them outta the garage. The tires are the original MM/HD combo which shows how much this set got used. 203 Magura rotors on both and an XD driver on the rear. As the details show they are non-boost but DTSwiss has the front hub end caps to do whatever you want up front and you could always use a boost adapter kit out back if needed.

[Updated] Mountain Biker Attacked by Grizzly Bear Near Big Sky, Montana
Yeah the bear roughed him up enough that he had to be airlifted in critical condition but that doesn't mean he wasn't up for a short hike before hand... respect for your elders on that one.

Spotted: Evil's New Long Travel Bike
Damn still have a super slack seat tube angle... best riding bike I ever rode was my evil but at 6'5 it just didn't work once I got the seat up and all the way back to near the middle of the rear wheel. Hook up the taller riders evil!

Pinkbike Poll: How Much Does the Bike Impact Racers' Results?
@Fix-the-Spade: agreed... no bike will win it for you, but the wrong bike can cost you a podium (either for the particular rider's style or missing key updates to industry competition levels).

Imagine how fast the three of them would have been in their prime with modern 29ers that fit them.

Pinkbike Poll: Would You Rather Be Over-Biked or Under-Biked?
Don't know how crazy tall you are but try the Supreme 29er... I'm 196 and it's the first dh bike I've ever owned that felt right.

Pinkbike Poll: Would You Rather Be Over-Biked or Under-Biked?
Had bike with 170 front and rear and just proceeded to injure myself with it a bunch. Raced dh for years and never had any injuries as bad as I did "trail" riding an 170/170 bike. Have since sold it and found the balance with an aggressive 130/150 trail bike that can do everything but doesn't build as much stupid speed on trails not built for going fast. I'll save my pursuit of speed and big lines for the DH bike and trails and parks that warrant it.

Colorado Man Passes Away While Riding Whistler's Comfortably Numb Trail
Damn that's horrible to hear... That was my local park for 4 years in NL. Not to jump to assumptions about the rider's skill (if nothing else losing Jordie shows that sometimes shit happens) I always thought it was silly to have that feature link off to the side of a beginners trail... I'd prefer to see some sort of "gate keeper" to ensure the skill matches the feature.
