Video: Yoann Barelli Goes on a Freeride Treasure Hunt with Steve Vanderhoek
Steve’s rad, and fearless. Yoann is just...nuts. Jeez, that was mental!

First Look: 2021 RAAW Jibb
@ProperPushIrons: agree. As a fellow UK ‘midlander’ my steep-by-modern-standards Giant Trance keeps it quick between the trees, and is nimble in the tight sections, whilst the short climbs and descents are still handled well (ride regularly at Cannock Chase). Super slack I think would make for a worse ride on these trails.

Endura Planted Over 1.3 Million Trees in 2020, Aiming to Become Carbon Negative by 2024
@lukeb: agreed. Some of the sizing seems odd too. Too short on MTB shorts and tops etc.

7 Riders Sent Back to Wales After Breaching Lockdown in the Forest of Dean
@slimboyjim: the ‘local’ thing needs explanation, you’re right. I live on the edge of Cannock Chase, so I can ride to the trail centre, or if I drive it’s 5 mins, tops. This, to me, is acceptable as ‘local’. Birmingham, albeit ‘local’ to us fellow midlanders, is quite a way to drive to Cannock (as an example). Tricky. Well done for avoiding the wrath of the missus though!

Theo Galy Signs with Sunn French Connexion Racing for 2021
@subwaypanda: good shout. Reads like it’s massively flawed. Guess looks ain’t all that!

Pinkbike's 2021 Predictions
Agreed. My local trail centre is now heaving with e-bikes, and many seem to be newer riders (all ages). Buzzing back tyres, barging past, audible displeasure if they are being held up etc. And as technique is lacking with many of these new e-bikers, heavy, fast e-bikes are tearing braking bumps and ruts into corners. Nothing personal against e-bikes, but it’s a concern. PS as a 40-something with a dodgy knee I guess I’m in the core market for an e-bike, but I’ll keep pedalling my normal bike for as long as I can.

2020 Pinkbike Awards: Value Mountain Bike of the Year Winner
@DylanH93: true. My trails are tight and twisty too, I don’t want enduro-geo. I don’t want conservative geo, but something modern. The super steep seat angles are OK, but again, can put a lot of strain on wrists if pedalling all day.

Canyon Strive Gets Color & Spec Updates for 2021
@iantmcg: plus more pressure on wrists etc with sitting more forward. I’m sure a more upright seat angle is the way to go (less back ache) but some of the crazy upright angles seem too much. My 2018 Giant Trance has a very slack seat tube and on my home trails climbs fine, as you say, just slide forward a bit. Maybe the extreme geo we see now will be cut back a bit into a middle ground. Trail bikes don’t need the full on Enduro-bro angles.
