Pinkbike Poll: What Size Are Your Tires?
Running Stans MK3 27.5 rims with Hans 2.6 front and back since last year and honestly, FUGIN AMAZING! Better grip, small bump eating, amazing cornering and honestly haven't noticed more than a VERY small increase in drag that disappears once up to speed. Anyone else running 2.6?...love to know what people are thinking on this

Using Downhill Racing to Recover from Serious Health Problems
THE SAME THING HAPPENED TO ME! Was just having breakfast with my wife and bam! massive pain in base of my skull! Thought I was having a stroke. Three days and three ER visits later and I'm almost dead. Kept in ICU for 4 days in sealed room with teams of neurologists and infectious disease doctors AFTER 6 spinal taps!..cause they fucked up the first 5! No food or drink for 4 days and near death. Never a 100% diagnosis but determined most likely viral meningitis. Worst pain I've ever felt. Never returned. God help anyone who doesn't have health insurance.

Here's My Unno Dash Test Bike - Tell Me What You Want to Know
I get why people have a reaction to the very high price (or enjoy having a little fun that i actually laugh at). That being said, to the people who are seriously criticizing this, remember that many of the advances we enjoy as standard now started out like this bike; really expensive and maybe even ridiculous to many. It's pushing the limits and trying new things. So many people here sound like major DINKS. We are supposed to be cool people my friends. I say of course I won't be buying one but kudos to the makers and it's cool/fun to read about. Spread the love, don't be a hater.

Flow Trail Overload? Or Never Enough Flow? - Pinkbike Poll
I agree with you%100......However, looking down the road to the future of our sport/community there is a major factor we should all be thinking about. Funding and access. If we make it easier to get into the sport and grow our numbers we will get access to public lands and funding which only higher numbers will bring. We don't get much now because we are very small number of people. New riders will gravitate towards more challenging terrain on their own and it will never go away. This needs to be a long term strategy to grow. The barriers to entry in this sport are significant and as a community we need to consider this. New bikes are amazing but newbies will never know this if we can't get them onto trails that don't terrify them. We forget how hard it probably is because most of us have been riding for so long. If we want to grow we need trails that are good for beginners. Decent bikes are very expensive so that right there is one of the biggest barriers to entry for our sport. We can't do too much about that but we can make trails more appealing and accessible. We will always have gnar but we have not always had funding or community/political support. We still have a reputation as a bunch of wild ruffians with no regard for our own safety and this is a great way to change that.

Talking About Tire Pressure - Pinkbike Poll
Many of these comments state one of the most important things: So many variables that this is almost useless. However, one repeated comment is sooo important. Get a digital gauge and use it, alot. 1 psi on a bike can make a big difference. The only way to find what works and keep it there is this. simple, basic thing.

Carbon vs Aluminum: Separating Environmental Fact From Fiction in the Frame Materials Debate
Thank you for covering this topic and topics like it. Most of us on here, including myself, are very passionate about conservation and I DO weigh this factor heavily when I make purchase decisions. We all should. What we spend our money on matters more than who you vote for.

Knolly Moves Entire Lineup to 157mm Spacing
Dame straight brother. I am all for forward progress but the industry has actually done it in a rather chaotic way. I'm sitting on my 142mm non-boost bike for a while. Good time to get a sweet deal actually. Save ur money folks and sit tight as long as you can. If we keep buying this stuff as soon as it comes out WE are actually the ones perpetuating this incremental and chaotic progression. Half steppin' our way to the "new better" is too expensive.
