Mondraker Dune - Review
I'd say not as high as 99% not the bike. A couple years ago my lower back was getting tight/sore while riding, and it was really affecting me and my rides. I work out daily with an array of activities and have a solid core, but the pain was getting persistent so I thought it could be the hydration pack but nothing changed. Then I thought it was maybe an old injury flaring up so I started getting massages too...nothing was helping and I was getting bummed out and rode a lot less. So I started spending time on a bike that I didn't enjoy riding nearly as much as my main rig and I noticed the pain didn't happen...so much so that I kind of forgot it was ever an issue. I went back onto my "good" bike and there it was again---stabbing lower back pain, tightness. So yeah, a bike that doesn't fit you well can absolutely create issues. That bike is gone, I fell in love with an even better bike and I haven't had any back pain since. :)

Searching for the Limit on the Transition Scout - Video
@oronaut: I'm 6'4, 33 inseam. I'm riding a L with a dropper with lay back and a 70mm stem. Fits me perfect for a trail bike that I can toss around, but I've always liked smaller frames for that reason

Searching for the Limit on the Transition Scout - Video
@SK250: I haven't ridden the Process, looks nice but I have my own bias against Kona. Without knowing your riding style or trails it's my opinion that most people will be perfectly happy with the Scout. I'm 6'4, 210 and throw my bike around/get rowdy(hence snapped chainstays) and it has never felt like I need more bike. I did set my fork at 150 to raise the BB and the extra cushion up front

Searching for the Limit on the Transition Scout - Video
Despite having cracked two chainstays on my Scout there is no other bike I'd rather ride. After a couple weeks riding on the Scout I sold my other bikes including my 160 travel Santa Cruz and haven't missed any of them! Thank you Transition for making the bestest, most funnest, bad assest, ripperestist bike I've owned over many, many years and many, many rides. Now I gotta get my pennies together and get the new updated Scout to join my original.

Pinkbike Poll: What If....?
@properp: he could've lived in a college town like I did and get paid by the dental school so the students could clean your tarter($50) and rid the cavities($100)..then he could've had nice teeth and a bike! :)

Pinkbike Poll: What If....?
All I know is I lusted after the Trek "Y" bike when I they were around, specifically the "Y-5-0" version, and that Specialized frame still looks cool..but those questions are pure nonsense!

Green Oil: An Environmentally Friendly Chain Lube? - Review
During two separate trips mineral oil/lube wasn't easily found so in a pinch I used olive oil on my chain(made stuff a bit gunky but kept it from rusting in the wet conditions), then the other time in my brake lines(performed pretty damn well actually). Bonus, it's earth friendly and I saved space on the travels by also having my cooking oil on hand! :)
