Vittoria Barzo Tire - Review
I'm currently running the the Barzo 27.5 on the rear. I switched from a Maxxis Ardent. The Barzo is faster and lighter but not as grippy as the Ardent exo. The Barzo does do well in the mud but over slippery rocks and roots the Ardent does better. Lastly when I'm cornering with the Barzo with too low of pressure I get that squirmy folding sensation. I like technical singletracks and the Barzo just doesn't make the cut for me so I will be switching back to the Ardent.

A Tour of the Pyrenees' Endless Trails - Photo Report
Good article and it looks like a great experience. Having lived in Spain 6 1/2 years I must say that you definitely should go on a guided tour if you want to discover the great trails and not get lost. Presently I am living in Switzerland and I have to tell you that so far I'm not so impressed and I find the trails a bit blah. The trails in Spain are much more wild and exciting. Btw so that your readers can get a better perspective of the region and culture of the area you should mention that you are in Catalonia. Thank you!

Pinkbike Poll: Does the Current Method of Mountain Bike Classification Make Sense?
@PHeller: It sounds like you're describing Nino Schurter :)

Pinkbike Poll: Does the Current Method of Mountain Bike Classification Make Sense?
I think there needs to be a seperate category for the XC bikes that are hard tail, no dropper post, feather light with a steep head angle, maybe they should be called "Marathon". These are pure endurance riders that tend to stick to fire roads and flat single track.

e*thirteen Releases New TRS+ 9-46 Tooth Cassette
Wow what a tiny cog! I would think such a tiny cog would require more torque, decreasing your pedal efficiency and increasing chain wear. Am I wrong? This is why Srams 10 tooth cog didn't appeal to me.

Are You Willing to Buy Your Next Bike Online? - Pinkbike Poll
Here in Spain I was able to finance my bike buying it at my local bike shop through Confidis with 0% interest. Something that is currently not an option when buying online and it was the only way I could pull off getting the bike I wanted and walk out with it on the same day. Even if I could buy online I just couldn't get myself to do it without being able to get on it and feel it. I tested several different brands before settling on my bike.

Nino Schurter's Prototype Scott - XCO World Cup Round 3, La Bresse
I can definitely see that the head angle ls slacker just by looking at the photos. I do deal with angles a lot in my profession so I have a pretty good eye for that stuff. Sweet bike though!

Happy Ride Weekend 2015 in Spain - Video
Actually Zids there is great trail riding in Barcelona. The city backs up to the Collserola natural park and there is a big network of trails and great single tracks there. And plenty of technical down hill trails as well.
