Summer of Glove: 7 Men's Gloves Reviewed
I like to go with a nice oven mitt. Nice and thick, that way I'm padded on a fall.

Is Polygon's Square One EX9 the Elusive 'One Bike'? - Review
@WAKIdesigns: You are correct, for the reasons you cite, there is no one bike. We have gotten real close, but a bike built to descend with the best shares little dna with the one built to climb.

Is Polygon's Square One EX9 the Elusive 'One Bike'? - Review
I want lots of bikes. Doesn't even matter how versatile a bike is, I want more of them. It's a sickness i know.

Pinkbike Poll: Either / Or... For Life
@TheRaven: Well yea, fine is fine. I would certainly survive. Just love my bars at 760-780 it's a huge difference in control to me. But like I said, it's a very personal choice. To each their own.

Pinkbike Poll: Either / Or... For Life
@WaterBear: You should run whatever is comfortable while keeping an open mind about progression within the sport. Not everything is fashion. I tried to answer these questions truthfully, to have some fun. I can choke up on a 800 (my personal preferred with is 780) a 700 is simply too narrow.

Pinkbike Poll: Either / Or... For Life
@TheRaven: With all due respect, is this on a trail bike or a DH bike? At DH speeds? I have a 740 bar, i rode for a bit on an XC machine and that was OK. But not on a DH bike. This of course is subjective and pertains to riding sytle and body type but even smaller riders could take advantage of something wider than 700 and the Sunday is a capable bike in its own right. So my pick would be the "dated" bike with correct width bar as opposed to a fancy carbon bike with a bar that makes it difficult to ride fast.

Yea it's sort of misdirect question. 800 is too wide for most people but 700? I think people forget how narrow that is. Ill take the 800's on a Sunday, any day.

Pinkbike Poll: Not So Fast, Punc!
I don't know that its such a mystery. I think tire technology can continue to improve and that will be a good thing, its come a long way already - fairly reliable tubeless set ups are now the norm. I think though that it will always be a balancing act. Weight vs durability. This sport is abusive on equipment and tires are asked to do a lot. Indestructible yet still be light enough to pedal around.
