Point: E-Bikes Are Good for the Sport
Been thinking about it and came to the conclusion that e-bikes are to cycling what fins are too swimming. They fulfill a utilitarian function that can't be denied, but improperly used they can become a crutch.

Is there any technical information on how this image was captured? Looks like an underexposed image to create the black background with the perfect use of a flash to bring out the rider. The image alone is amazing, but when I try to imagine setting up this kind of shot in race-conditions with a telephoto lens I am blown away. Would love to hear more about what went into making this shot.

2015 Photo of the Year: The Voter's Grand Prize
Actually the going rate for commercial/product photography is actually pretty good. The price per image can range anywhere from $500-$30,000(A website like Imagebrief is a good place to check if you want to get a better idea of professional photography rates). However, the huge downside is that it's an extremely competitive field, and you need to be damn near perfect with every shot you sell. All that being said, to remove the professional photographers from the contest solely to give "amatuers a chance" would ruin the whole contest IMO. There's nothing stopping an amateur from getting into this contest. Any photo can be nominated and if you want to get nominated then get out there and shoot thousands of photos, learn the rules of composition, and perfect your craft as an artist (It's what all of these guys have done). In short, if you want to be in the contest you'[ve got to be one of the best, and that's what makes this contest the highlight of my year.

It'd be pretty cool as well if they had a brackets contest(like the NCAA March Madness tournament), where voters submit their predictions for each rounds winners.

Mongoose Adds Brayden Barrett-Hay and Paul Genovese to Mountain Team
Are the bikes pictured here available to consumers? I recently went to their page looking for a 26" DJ and sadly didn't find one. Are they available in countries other than the US?

Ask Pinkbike: Going Tubeless, Stripped Nipples, and Riding in Germany
I second the Koenigstuhl trails in Heidelberg. When I was there in 2012 you could take the bus from the city center up to the top of the hill. It ran every hour on the hour, and dropped you off right at the trailhead. The timing of the bus is pretty great. It takes about 30 min up and 15 min back to the bus stop. You can run laps all day without having to bother with your own transport. As I student I loved it cause I could study on the ride up and then ride down. HOWEVER! If you do take the bus be sure to be courteous to your fellow passengers. That same bus stops at a nursing home and often has elderly passengers.

PINKBIKE POLL: Press-Fit Bottom brackets
"he point is moot, however, because over time, natural selection has eliminated all the brands that made noisy thread-in bottom brackets." - Laughed at this. As a mechanic I can tell you that the one think I hate working on the most are PF-BB's, and the writer's use of the past tense here to describe the "natural selection" of BB is just wrong. This past week I had to fix this issue on three different bikes. All of which are 2015 models or newer. What I find the most irritating is most fixes are all temporary. Even Specialized's recommendation of epoxy (yes, they do recommend you use epoxy to help keep there BB's from fixing) works for only about a year. To answer the question-- if BB's were silent I probably would still go threaded, simply because the noise is only a symptom of a larger problem. If the BB shell(Frame, or plastic cups) is made out of anything softer than aluminum the aluminum ring of the bearing will eventually gouge into it. Which will eventually lead all other bearings installed later having a poor fit.
