Bikes, Boards, and Beaches in Bellingham - Video
Anyone who gets motivated to move here, you should know that the vacancy rate for rentals is currently less than 1%, and home prices are rising by 10% or more per year. Tons of college students, tons of retirees, few young professionals. But the riding is damn good, the riding community is fantastic, and the people who have figured out how to make it happen love it here!

MX or MTB: Ethan Nell Will Still Send It - Video
@otto99 Work hard and you'll be able to live the dream in your twenties and beyond. I bought my mx bike on my 25th birthday, the one I wanted for years growing up. I spent my teens and college riding bikes because that's what was available, and developed a passion for bikes in the process. I get smoked by teens all the time, but who cares? Last summer I did a hare scramble at Washougal, and was so giddy the night before I couldn't sleep. I was about to ride the track I'd been playing in video games since I was a little kid! You only get that kind of excitement after years of anticipation. I still got my ass handed to me, but I had the biggest grin the whole time. Which is more important? My point is there's nothing to be gained through envy, don't let it spoil your ability to enjoy these sports with whatever equipment you have.

Kirt Voreis Toying with Galbraith - Video
Most impressive trick in the video i thought! Major commitment, I would not want to overshoot that thing, it gets flat pretty quick.

Ban the Berms? – Opinion
Similar sentiment to the Tech vs Flow poll a couple years ago. Flow is fun, but shouldn't be the only thing. Tech allows more room for rider creativity and skill, whereas flow is more of a one-time experience of a builder's vision. Berms let newer riders enjoy the sensation of speed, but sanitize the trail for experts. https://www.pinkbike.com/news/pinkbike-poll-flow-trails-vs-technical-trails-2015.html

Whoa, the contrast between the rock scree and the dirt in the foreground is very trippy. Cool!

Pinkbike Poll – Electronic Components on Your Mountain Bike?
The only electronic device I would consider putting on my bike is data acquisition. The quick feedback so that you can test different settings or see your performance over certain sections of trail, that's pretty cool and can make me a better rider. Critically, I can take it off or completely ignore it, without it impacting my ability to ride. DAQ is like a fancy stopwatch; not every ride has to be about being faster.

Win a Whistler Mountain Bike Park Season Pass
To people complaining: several million people live close enough to wbp to make full use of a season pass going only on weekends. Add in the vacationers (especially aussies!) who come stay for a month at a time, and there's quite a pool of people who could win it.

Ask Pinkbike: Carbon or Aluminum, Norco Sight or Optic?
@WasatchEnduro: you don't have to convince me, I was just making the point you can definitely make cutting edge materials science sound low tech. Carbon bike frames are relatively easy compared to aerospace anything. Carbon Al or Steel comes down to personal preference and willingness to pay for performance. I guarantee everyone here can see some benefit from better equipment, but the vast majority of riders would get more out of a $1000 on lessons than on saving 2lbs from their frame. My 2 cents.
