Pinkbike Poll: Do You Opt For Performance or Value From Your Tires?
When I could afford it I started riding softer compound tires for more margin of error, and changing them more often with the idea that it's a bit safer than wringing the living daylights out of every set... jury is still out there on if it's worth it.

Video: Transition Develops The New Patrol & Hannah Bergemann Puts It Through Its Paces
Patrolling the comments for people to get mad at?? If I'm going to watch world class riding or bike industry comedy I go for the former every day, all day... doesn't mean I'm throwing shade at TR. Some of us don't have time during working hours to watch both. Spread good vibes not PB comment hate.

HB has it all- raw speed, style, control, and guts. That gap is no joke, especially in person (used to live in Bellingham). TR can skip the intro next time.

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 63 - Our Best (And Worst) Bike Buying Advice
Words of advice from my experiences. Buy with your heart (after sampling), less often. Get what EXACTLY what you want (if you can find it) and reduce how often you go back to buy again. Don't follow the BS annual bike upgrade marketing from industry. Rent and/or demo different brands and year-models before dropping thousands on a bike. You'll find what you do/don't like. Some shops carrying multiple brands let me try multiple bikes in the same day (same rental agreement) and of course would discount that from a build. Even if you can't afford your top choice, demo it... wanted a megatower until I rode it. If you're working with a shop or even an online retailer, often times they will work with you to swap out parts on yet-to-be built bikes (maybe it's even more easy these days since re-selling components could be easier?). Sometimes you can reduce your cost of getting the exact parts you want on the bike to hit any budget limits you have, while focusing on specific areas (weight, tires, suspension, brakes) you consider essential and compromising where you don't care much (for me alu wheels 4 life). Doing this -pre-covid- I was able to spec out a sick dh oriented trail bike with brakes, rotor size, tire compounds, upgrade from fit4 to GRIP2 fork, bar while adding less than $200 to my cost... which would've been a $1000+ changeover if I had done everything independently.

Video: Gee Atherton's Terrifying 'Slate Line' POV
Actually looks doable and pretty fun if you remove the Gee-speed/sized drops and step down. Just don't fall...

UK Bike Shop Chain Evans Cycles to Cut 300+ Jobs
This yet another example of the problem with ownership by conglomerates and/or shareholders. Despite likely churning an accounting profit, Fraser will do anything for the last drop of margin- and will harm communities, employees and customers (I can't imagine you fire 45% of staff in shops without a significant drop in customer service) to do it.

Endura Launch Danny MacAskill and Kriss Kyle Signature Pisspot Helmet
A family friend was a Red Bull sponsored skier, but to keep things fresh she always snowboarded when cruising with friends. She had to wear the helmet by contract, so it was always fun when people would think she was a phony with a RB lid.
