Devinci's 30th Anniversary YYZ Bike
you know 26" is dead as f*ck if a 1987 replica bike sports another wheel size. Nice bike though.

Commencal's New E-Bikes
@cvoc: well, you might be right, I've just been in Graubünden and on two days we saved ourselves some of the uphill meters via Gondola and Postbus. That way, there's at least a benefit for the local economy, but your point is valid.

Commencal's New E-Bikes
It's not the joy you can have riding that ever made me questioning E-Bikes, it's the effect they have and will have on our sport. In the Alps like in many other places we use trail networks that were built for hikers. Often, our presence is tolerated but actually often against the official rules. Well, how will twice as many runs, twice as much conflict and twice as much erosion affect that acceptance? And there's more, cause first it won't just be twice as much but even more bike traffic and second it shifts the image of MTBers from sportsman who work their way up up the hills to enjoy nature to fun-seekers who don't care about circumstances and consequences too much. Would be a shame to see our sport being restricted to some forest roads, trail centers and bike parks because of that.

Fabio Wibmer, Urban Freeride in Salzburg - Video
Being Austrian myself, glad to see Fabian making headlines, and being a huge fan of Chris Akrigg for years there ain't no doubt that while both Chris and Fabians riding is super creative and top level, of course, Danny is the king. He pulls of tricks nobody else has the skillset to copy.

Ask Pinkbike: Carbon or Aluminum, Norco Sight or Optic?
When performance is key, carbon is inevitable. Which is why the first EWS round 2017 was won on Aluminium bikes in both Men's and Women's category. No ambitious amateur should consider an Aluminium bike to be sufficent. ;)

ION – Bike Wear Highlights 2017
what's the problem they want to present their new clothes line, but in an entertaining video. Any person who can read knows it's an ad the moment they see the preview on the news page. Still don't mind.

There's More to Morzine - Video
sam, you're so damn right. So far we've been staying in Chatel, Les Gets and Morzine. What makes this area so incredibly outstanding is that it's so widespread. But if you're staying in let's say Chatel and want to experience Les Gets or Champery and maybe grab some burgers at lunch you are basically just on transfer, and if you have some mechnicals you might not catch your transfer back (which is catastrophic in the case of Chatel because you'll be fucking stuck or you'll have to push your bike up some 500 meters of altitude). So please, at least leave some crucial ones like "Chaux Fleurie" open a bit longer. Or the whole area which would of course be even more awesome.
