Pinkbike Poll: What Would You Upgrade On Your Current Mountain Bike?
Easy enough, I've been on the same bike for 7(!!) years now and I've got it just how I like it. It keeps seeing off the competition at demo days, a new bike won't make me any less crap. Not buying a new bike also freed up a shed load of money for lift days and trips, which is nice.

Video: French Mountain Biker Goes Viral After Almost Crashing into A Group of Students
Hopefully not, it would really suck for some random guy to get an assault conviction over a rider being a nob.

Review: 2019 Swarf Contour 29 - A Hard-Charging Short Travel Fully
@hamncheez: Short answer is yes. Longer answer is yes, but to get the same degree of flex will require large areas with very thin layup, which is just asking to get a hole punched through it in a crash. Road bikes use that kind of construction a lot, but MTB frames tend to be overbuilt to survive the inevitable trips across the rocks. Trek's Isospeed hardtails with the pivot at the seatsay/seatube junction are the only carbon MTB's I can think of that really exploit that kind of layup.

Review: 2019 Swarf Contour 29 - A Hard-Charging Short Travel Fully
@Kramz: They're called Giant and Merida, there's a good chance you've ridden a frame built by one of those two in your life, even if it didn't have their name on the head tube.

Randoms - Bespoked Show 2019
@bonfire: An electronic Di2 type shifter for Pinion would be great, maybe one of the only places I would want to see electric shifting.

Randoms - Bespoked Show 2019
@Gackt: Pinion's are really good for some things, but they have two major drawbacks. The first is the drag, they do have it and it is noticable, it more or less goes away after you have put a couple of thousand kilometres into one, but it never goes completely and you have to put up with it for a couple years worth of riding for most people. The second is the weight, they are still heavy. The shifter is fine, Gripshift is not as good as triggers and the set up is fidly (over and under the brake lever) but it's fine. Pinions are popular with tourers and bikepackers because they're so reliable, but MTB will always be a harder sell.
