Race & Accessibility in the Mountain Bike Community
here’s an idea... just get rid of comments altogether. Many upstanding media outlets have realized in recent years that this great new “democratization” of the Internet via comments sections is really nothing other than people saying things they’d never say to someone’s face. True social discourse been dismantled by faux-social discourse like comments sections. Brass Tacks: they bring no true depth. They bring no genuine insight. They bring nothing so valuable that it’s worth perpetuating all the toxicity. VERY rarely does anyone say anything in these comments sections that needs to be said. I’m sure I’m guilty of saying some pretty dumb sh*t in comments myself. IF Pinkbike is truly interested in improving things it must let go of this make-believe “community nurturing” B.S. when it comes to comments. Something tells me it’s about those aforementioned $$$ and the unwillingness to take a real stand for fear of losing eyeballs. ebikes come to mind here... embracing eBikes doesn't seem to have hurt you all that much, why not lose comments? Comments sections are dinosaurs slowly but inexorably becoming extinct. Because the sites that do actually care have realized just how toxic, pointless, infantile, and generally useless they actually are. Also, the people most likely to spout off racial and otherwise hateful rhetoric in the comments are precisely those who only come to the site for the comments. Lose the comments, lose the hate.

Pinkbike Poll: How Often Do You Drive to Your Local Trails?
@Shafferd912: I’m never not amazed at all the roadies I see on the twisty dangerous fatality-ridden mountain roads here in Southern California. You couldn’t pay me enough to ride a bicycle in the streets in Los Angeles. If you held a gun to my head and told me I had to choose between learning to ride a Rampage line or spend the rest of my life riding a bicycle in the street every day I would choose the former every time.

The Top 20 Pinkbike Comments of the Past Decade
So many of these top comments are directed at how sh***y Red Bull is. It’s hilarious... Can we get one of those Pinkbike Polls to see how many mountain bikers actually drink that poisonous trash? (argue all you want that Red Bull is good for the sport and that it wouldn’t be where it is without them but that’s just rationalizing the crappy way they treat all their atheletes)

Field Test: 2020 Mondraker F-Podium DC - It Says Downcountry on the Frame
I hope you’re happy, Levy! It was you who originally coined the term “down country”, no? Bet you never thought someone would actually put those words on a bike, did you?!

Santa Cruz Bicycles Pledges to Give $1 Million to the Trails Over the Next 3 Years
I think this is really STUPID, and shortsighted of Santa Cruz! What they SHOULD be doing is pouring that money into developing an e-bike to REALLY improve trail access!l for EVERYONE! This is STUPID and I HATE them! *seriously though.... THIS is what it looks like when a company that really actually, genuinely, in real life, not just marketing BS, cares about trail access and the true soul of the sport. If Santa Cruz ever releases an e-MTB, then I’ll have to eat my words. But until then, pull your heads out of your a**es people, and support a company that REALLY supports mountain biking, and not just their bottom line.

5 Things We Learned at Red Bull Rampage 2019
Redbull always has problems covering these events. You think they’d eventually pull their heads out of their a** and just do some pre-production prep. In my line of work (television) Redbull has a bit of a reputation for not really sussing everything out properly before hand. They don’t pay particularly well, and they are a bit slipshod as a production entity in general. Lots of bro-ey vibes and git-er-done attitude but not a lot of professional aptitude. As far as announcers go... Parnell seems at least somewhat informed despite sounding super generic all the time. The other dude... just shouldn’t have been in the booth but he’s prob been angling to commentate Rampage for a long time. Cam is just SO good at commentating, it’s hard to listen anyone else try to do it while he’s in the booth next to them.

Who said 26” is dead?! Swap me your frame and breath NEW LIFE into your 26” shredfests! Trade Caveats: must be 26” frame, must be 2012 or newer, if not carbon, an existing rear suspension upgrade will help your cause. Looking to trade frame for something off the list below: Ibis Mojo HD 26” Trek Remedy 26” Specialized Enduro 26”
