What Are Your MTB Pet Peeves? - Opinion
1.) Dog owners leaving their animal’s sh*t on the trail. 2.) Obnoxious hikers with Bluetooth speakers blasting garbage music in the mountains. 3.) Dumb a$$ mountain bikers who while descending don’t yield to those climbing. 4.) Dumb a$$ idiot selfish pr*ck mountain bikers who while descending don’t yield to those climbing. 5.) Off-Leash dog owners who act all butthurt and scared when you “surprise” them. 6.) A ton of other stuff but I’m at work and don’t have any more time to list them!

T-Mac, R-Dog, & Bubba Warren Shred A New Spot In SoCal - Video
I was really disappointed in the colorways of the Bell Super DH, but the Fasthouse version is sick.

Finished: Santa Cruz Bicycles Ask Us Anything
While my 2014 5010cc is the most fun bike I’ve ever ridden and has made me a Santa Cruz rider for life (aesthetics be damned) I can’t help but find it (and most other Santa Cruz frames) somewhat less than inspiring in terms of aesthetics. It’s like your bikes are phenomenal in bed with the lights off, but then in the morning it’s like “hmmm... sure as hell looked cuter last night in the bar”. Is the pared-down, minimalistic, arguably boring look of Santa Cruz MTBs more a result of form following function? Or is the vanilla flavored banality of the MTB lineup an actual aesthetic goal as vigorously pursued as the performance of your bikes?

Santa Cruz's New Blur XC Bike - Review
Truth: this bike would suit the way the vast majority of mountain bikers actually ride. Fact: this bike will be outsold by a factor of 1000/1 in favor of bikes that are WAY over spec’d and over “geo’d” Takeaway: buy the bike that suits the terrain you’re actually riding, not what the bike industry is trying to sell you. You’ll have more fun! Disclaimer: I’m a convert to the short travel, “conservative” geo school of riding.

Yakima HoldUp 2 - 1 1/4” Rack

$150 USD
Bought in 2014... and used extensively... so it's got some miles on it. Hitch mount size is 1 1/4" so check your car or truck. Adapter sleeves are available on Amazon to fit 2" hitches. In great working condition, but if you're looking for a pristine rack, this ain't it. Paid over $500 for it. Price is $150 FIRM. LOCAL Los Angeles Pickup Only.

1 Question - Is Social Media Having a Positive or Negative Impact on our Sport?
@preston67: You’re absolutely correct. I don’t disagree. Those too exist. While those weirdos definitely exist, they don’t often espouse lynching people, or shooting up schools, or creating conspiracies about child sex rings in pizza parlors, etc.

1 Question - Is Social Media Having a Positive or Negative Impact on our Sport?
Adolescent suicides Russian Bots Far-right extremist cesspool chat rooms Kids eating f*cking Tide Pods Fake news Beheading videos Live streamed murders and rapes Oh, and people stopping group rides to take too many goddamned pics for their stupid instaface whatevers The list of negatives FAR outweighs any positive social benefit of anti-social media. I don’t have a Facebook account. Or twitter, or Instagram, or anything else. The only place I post is here on Pinkbike. Even then, I try to limit my interaction here in the comments because it always devolves into ugliness. This sh*t is all poison and is eroding the fabric of society in front of our eyes. I predict that Social Media will go down in history as the worst social health crisis history has ever seen. But hey bro, that Strava time you posted was sick! And that rock roll was way gnarly brah! And wow that sandwich looks tasty! And that pic of your feet in the sand on that beach really has improved my life!

Cycling Brands Under Scrutiny in Gun Control Debate
@thehardtail: Great history lesson! Thanks! Oh, and the colonials, who you so modestly compare yourself to in terms of courage, were aided extensively by the french. Also, colonial troops outnumber British soldiers by about 30,000. And the weaponry was mostly similar. Anything else I can shoot down for you? (See what I did there?!)
