Video: Night vs. Day Riding - Can Christina Ride Just As Fast?
Odd choice only running 600 lumens on the helmet with 2500 on the bars. I’d go with 1200+ and keep the brightness of the two lights somewhat similar.

Video: Night vs. Day Riding - Can Christina Ride Just As Fast?
@Ontario123: on tech trails with roots and even tiny 18” drops bar lights alone are worthless. All you see is a black void where the trail should be. It’s terrifying and almost impossible to ride. Helmet light, always.

Reserve's New Fillmore Valve Aims to Make Tubeless Easier
@stormracing: 99 out of 100 times, the Lezyne pumps work great. That 1 time happens to be at the top of a windy hill when it's 5 degrees below freezing and you burped your tire. True story. That was fun. Went out and bought a OneUp the next day.

Pinkbike Poll: Have You Ever Broken Carbon Fiber Cranks?
XT cranks bend easily, but luckily individual arms are usually available (or at least used to be).

Day 2 Race Report: Trans Cascadia 2021
Looks like the TransCascadia crew worked their magic and brought Foggy Dew Ridge into play by extending it so it's not an out-and-back anymore. It used to just be an "orphaned" moto trail that didn't get a lot of use. This is why this race is special, they really bring something to the community and rehab trail systems.

Field Test: Enduro and eMTBs Get Hucked to Flat in Ultra Slow Motion
@nickmalysh: I've bent a handful of XT cranks, but maybe anything would have bent as I've killed a lot of pedal spindles as well. I've also broken a couple carbon RF cranks. Just give me basic 7000 series aluminum and I'll accept that all bike parts break eventually. Ideally not catastrophically. I suspect reliable and durable carbon cranks would need to be like carbon rims; just as heavy as alum. But there's not the durability upside you have with carbon rims. Riders who area easier on parts have a different calculation than some of us.
