Fuel Up: 5 of My Favourite Homemade Ride Snacks
Nice article. Thanks. I still think its easiest to throw peanuts and raisins in a plastic baggy. Real hard to beat for ease of prep, taste, and energy, and shelf life, and does not melt.

Pinkbike Poll: What Would You Upgrade On Your Current Mountain Bike?
Was a die hard Shim fan and stayed on a 1x10 for a long time before hitting 1x11. Ran the 1x11 for many miles then finally gave Sramy 12 a go - ooohhh... First few rides out and I'm really digging it. So much so, I'm likley upgrading my second trail bike to the eagle.

Review: Lake's Race-Ready MX 332 Shoes
I'm a sucker for a well made shoe. Lived in Sidis for many years. But my favorite shoe turned out to the the Specialized _Sport_ (yes, even lower than the Comp), mtb shoe. Perfect fit, no mesh for cold damp riding, 3 indestructible velcro straps, all black, great grip, very walkable - and super cheap !!! Since going with them I've tried more expensive shoes, but have yet to find a better overall "fit". That said, those Lakes look great - almost all black and no mesh.

North of Nightfall Nominated for a Sports Emmy Award for Outstanding Camera Work
The views in this are amazing, so there was some nice work. But watching overgrown kids flip toy bikes down otherwise unscathed terrain is really hokey. I'm all about a good adventure and riding bikes but this looks more like a cheesy circus act. How much in gear, support, and plane rides did that take?

Opinion: Why Is Everyone Talking About Seat Tube Angles?
@gramboh: Right on. Different horses for different courses. And to think that super steep STAs have no drawbacks is foolish. There are pro and cons to everything. Biggest fix to this issue is to avoid being over-biked. Short-modest travel bikes don't sag that much on climbs, so benefit little from the super steep STA. Get a bike with a realistic amount of travel for your terrain, modestly steep STAs, and some real rubber, adn all will be good with the world.

Video: Are 29/27.5" Mullet Bikes Faster Than 29ers?
On long travel and DH rigs the rear wheel takes much more of a beating than the front. A smaller, more durable wheel out back is more practical. Pros get new wheels all the time. I don't. Heavy rim, full DH casing, and inserts on the rear for me, on a 275. On a 29 that's going to be pretty porky. The rollover of the 29 up front makes the most sense too. It's where the benefits of a bigger hoop are most noticed. Short travel bike 29 both ends, burly bikes with 29 are pushing too much wheel. On my next AM or DH bike I'd buy a 29/275, but not a 29/29.

Review: Specialized S-Works Recon Shoe
Favorite shoe in over 20 years of mtb - Spec Sport. Lowest level shoe. Dirt cheap. Perfect fit. Three non-breakable velcro straps. Flexible enough for hike-a-bikes. All black. No mesh. I could buy these Recons if I wanted but doubt they'd work as well al the Sport for me.
