Bike Check: Project 12 Cycleworks' Victor is a Dutch Downcountry Bike with 73mm Travel
Yes! I've been saying this for a long time. HCHT with 100mm rear travel would be the bee's knees.

Tested: Does a Lockout Actually Make Climbing Faster?
Call me a nerd, but the thing that excited me most is that you showed very clearly that a statistically significant difference doesn't need to show a 'high' overall effect. @seb-stott: I second morgiou; Could you please share the statistical tests and/or the data with us? I realize I might be overthinking this; I also think that for this goal the sample size is just fine if you don't start adjusting for wattage.

Pinkbike Poll: How Important is a Quiet Bike to You?
I mostly work on my bikes myself. With that, I want to say that there is almost always some noise coming when I pedal them. Good think I'm not a bike mechanic but just a simple PhD in Biology.

Pinkbike Poll: How Long Do Bike Parts Last?
Yes! Solid point. I think hours per bike would be a good way to narrow everything down.

Pinkbike Poll: How Long Do Bike Parts Last?
I'd disagree, I think hours ridden would tell much more but who really logs that accurately? Also, spreading your activities over different bikes will also distort any signals. However, overall you just need a big enough sample size to see trends. It's not science, after all.

@Spiral23: I'm a cheap fuck and have broken some brakes, so I ran: a: Hope Mono6 front, Shimano SLX (2015) rear b: Avid Juicy7 (2009) front, Shimano SLX (2015) rear c: Shimano SLX (2015) front, Shimano 2XXX series hydraulic rear Still alive. I get used to it very quickly. It's like riding around with a rear brake that needs a bleed, but not urgently enough that you really do it. I feel like the whole 'brake feel' thing gets blown out of proportions. YMMV

Opinion: How True is the 'Dudes Who Shred' vs 'YouTubers' Meme?
@Ttimer: "A pov of an EWS run is basically a different sport that has nothing to do with what we ride." This. In bold. And it's okay. I also am missing one point which should be made clearer: I think the edits and videos of people that are pros or close make you feel like you have to compete, have to be able to gap the tdF peloton and be able destroy a berm by shralping it (what's up with that anyway??). It's this image that doesn't reflect what most people do, and what is much healthier to aspire to: ride for fun, explore your limits and maybe become better. But it's not all about brah-bro's that have the best skillset ever. It's about a hobby that is a counterweight (or a good supplement) to the rest of your life. I'm sad that there are not many entertaining videos of people going for cool (if not epic) backcountry adventures, fool around with bikepacking maybe, or just do some short and sweet rides and just inspire you to have a good old time with some mates. Youtube channels would be a perfect place to change the culture away from just shredding towards a mass-sport that's still kicking ass even if you're not the best.

10 Products I Loved In 2020: Mike Kazimer
It's less hot, and somehow I never found a chamois that i felt comfortable with. Now I just ride with sportsunderwear, and all my bikes have a leather brooks. Weird on a MTB, but effective. I can ride 100km untrained on any of my bikes; i will hurt everywhere but my ass.
