Letter from the Editor: Pinkbike’s Next Chapter with Outside
Haven’t posted in a long time, as I’ve had many anti-ebike, anti-comments section and anti-social media rants etc., But if you think for a second a brand like Outside is going to tolerate the toxic bro culture of the comments section, you’ll find yourself mistaken. That’s the one silver lining to this, as the comments section contributes precisely ZERO to the culture of mountain biking. You can’t knock a guy like Radek for wanting to cash out. He prob got a nice fat check. But you also can’t deny that crap like the gaslighting e-bike coverage, and giving the site a partial paywall, is just part and parcel to the decline of what USED TO BE a fairly independent source of reviews. The integrity that some of the staff have is inevitably gonna be chipped away by the pursuit of profit. I know Kazimer and Levy are either happy that their gonna paid what they’re worth, or sad that they’re gonna get muzzled by cow towing to brands. Or maybe both… again, you can’t knock it as a guy has to eat. That doesn’t change the fact that this sucks. Will I continue to read pinkbike? Maybe, but I sure as hell ain’t gonna pay a penny for it. Not when the reviews will have lost their teeth, and the ebike garbage will propagate exponentially. Question is… who’s the next guy who’s gonna launch the next Pinkbike? Whoever that is, please give it a less odd name.

ISO Bronson Frame Swap Large to Medium

$1 USD
Hear me out... Been scouring the inter-webs for a second hand 2019/20 Bronson in MEDIUM. There are plenty of them out there but not many with the spec I’m after. This may sound kooky but I’m looking for someone who is currently on a medium Bronson that would prefer to be on a large. Once I find this person and reach an IRONCLAD agreement about trading, I would then purchase a Large Bronson and following that initiate the trade of the frames. This opens up the secondhand market to me considerably in terms of getting the spec/price I want, and it gets you on the large frame that you want. So if you’re on a MEDIUM 2019/20 Bronson, that is in EXCELLENT condition in PRIMER GRAY, RED TIDE, OR OLIVE GREEN (sorry but I can’t do Industry Blue... BARF!) then hit me up let’s figure out how to make it work. See my buy/sell history if you want to be sure that you’re not dealing with a nut job. Thanks!

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.
