Opinion: Why Weight Doesn't Matter
Again, thanks for all the subtle laughs. I love your deadpan delivery and not stopping for reactions to your jokes and puns. I'm sure some it goes right over the heads of a few. I agree with the concept. It's the same in the road world where you see the weekend rider obsessing over titanium spoke nipples where shaving a few pounds off his own frame would make the most difference. Moving towards that happy blend of performance and longevity is where most of us should be looking but it's funny how few of us could accurately guess the weight of a bike by how it rides. That could be a fun follow up - weigh a bunch of bikes (preferably ones that have some mods), have the pinkbike crew ride them and then guess their weights. It would be interesting to see how close those that are in the industry could get.

First Look: Hope's New F22 Flat Pedal
I had the F20's and liked them but when I upgraded to Chromag Daggas I was blown away at how much better of a pedal it was. I also agree with the rest of the comments that the F20's look better than the new 22's.

Video: Tahnee Seagrave's Struggle with Concussion in 'How We Roll' - Episode 3
@mikelee: I had a massive traumatic brain injury snowboarding over 25 years ago. It was also my ninth concussion. It took years to get back to 'normal' but the ability to ride fast came back. Well, fast is always relative, but fast for me. Cognitive Behaviour Therapy was useful for me. A chiropractor that knew about concussions also really helped me in my recovery. Good luck!

Opinion: What Are Your Worst Bike Habits?
Riding my bike when I know that that rear shock hasn't been serviced in two years and is making horrible squelching sounds. I know it's cactus but I can't afford to replace it and I'm sure it's beyond saving now.
