Ask Pinkbike: Derailleur Hanger Dilemma and Wet Weather Riding Gear
Re: Hangers. I searched everywhere for a hanger for my 2014 Diamondback Mason hardtail. Didn't show up anywhere that specialized in hangers or bike parts in general. If all else fails, I recommend checking eBay. I ended up finding a guy that had machined his own and had some for sale on there.

It's Alive: Santa Cruz Reveals the V10 29er
@humoroususername: Regulations inevitably change. Who is actually making those regulations and their motivations needs to be accounted for. I'm going to bet that Trek/Spec have a bit more clout with the UCI than say, Kona. If changing a regulation, whether it be wheel size or otherwise, makes sense for their bottom line there will be a push for that. And when that regulation is changed the small teams will have no choice but to spend the money on development to even continue taking part. As we stand, without a mandate, at least smaller teams would be able to continue taking part while developing at their own pace rather than a pace dictated by a governing body.

Commencal Announces New Furious DH Bike
I get the meme status of "Looks like a Session", but is there some other Pinkbike rule where people have to come out of the woodwork to exclaim how similar a new bike looks to some other bike regardless of whether they're based on completely different suspension designs or not? Is it a thing where we all act like idiots concerned only with appearance on new bike announcement threads and then argue about how differences in millimeters affect damn near every aspect of a bike on every other post?

Commencal Announces New Furious DH Bike
The page for the bike on Commencal's website talks a good bit about simplicity, so I'd bet that that plays a part. Maybe the normal pivot point has characteristics that fit the freeride intentions of this bike a bit better as well?

@slumgullion: Yep. Quite a few were using the Guide lever/Code caliper combo, which is effectively what the Guide RE is.

Ryan Leech's Flat Pedal Challenge
I've switched back and forth since I was 13 or so. Had my right lateral meniscus removed this year so I went from Shimanos to Times to see if the extra float would help my knee out. I was still getting used to the extra amount of rotation required to unclip and had a stupid 0mph tipover on a logover. Tore a ligament in my thumb on that fall. Back to flats. There's not really a lot I CAN'T do with flats that I can with clipless, but some things like unweighting the rear of the bike without jettisoning my feet over rough stuff or quick, multiple hops for rear wheel placement definitely take more physical and mental effort when on flats rather than clipless. I do find that clipless also seem to foster just sitting and zoning out during fireroad climbs and the like.
