Video & Photo Story: The Making of Whistler's Dark Crystal Trail
@leelau: I rode with Scott back in 2015 and his plan was build it and they'll make it legal. I believe that's how most of the valley trails came about. Seb Kemp wrote a few pieces a good few years ago how they came about.

Review: The Privateer Bikes 141 Is A Little Bike with Big Intentions
@DHhack: Good point. But have they done that to maintain a reach that is manageable for the average size large rider? Because if it had a 640ish tt length the reach would be around 515, bigger than most XLs! The steep seat tube necessitates a shorter top tube length to keep reach within a usable range.

Field Trip: Ripley vs Trance X vs Siskiu vs Marshall vs Rift Zone - Value Full-Suspension Roundtable
@mikelevy: I can't believe this is still an issue, I had the previous gen XTs and they were terrible. I think the issue is the modulation changes with the bite point so you have no idea what effort to put in each time you apply the brakes, and that gets in your head. I just never fully trusted the brakes and I found it hard to let go and ride fast.

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 26 - The Three Most Important Mountain Bikes
@regdunlop: I agree on the Heckler, especially the 2nd gen 5 inch one. In those days they rode beyond the old 32mm forks of the day. Until the 36 came out. There was the OG Enduro back then and the RM Slayer, those bikes bridged the gap between XC and freeride in the day. 1st gen Nomad is worth a mention.

Pinkbike Poll: Where Do You Shop for Bike Parts?
@schulte1400: It's about having a great local shop. I don't mind that mine doesn't have some things in stock because I text, email or call and it's there or delivered to me the next day.

Video: The Basics of Modern Mountain Bike Geometry - The Explainer
I've recently come off a Nomad 3 to a new Hightower and it's quite a difference. The Hightower is just as capable as the Nomad in the steeps, but more playful. With longer reach you're more centered on the bike so there's better traction and the longer wheelbase helps in the steeps. The improved front end grip provides better cornering and the big wheels hold an offcamber line much better. The only negative I'd say is the steep seat angle feels a bit weird riding on the flat to the trail head, but I'm not bothered by that. To be fair, I loved the Nomad too though.
