Manitou Mattoc Pro 2 - Review
I remember drooling over the Minute and Nixon a decade ago when I was a kid in high school. My friend and I (who was the ONLY other mtber in a school of 2000 kids) would drop by the local shops after an afternoon trail riding and hitting some of the staircases in town. Manitou was the shit back then and so was life, miss those days watching a Kranked movie and riding for 6 hours afterwards.

Ask Pinkbike: Wide Tires, Dirt Jumper for Whistler, and Trail Hardtails
Reading this made me crazy! I've got a Nukeproof Scout frame clamped in my stand and all my parts laid out on a rolling table next to it. On top of that the last parts came today, a Nobby Nic tire for the back and a Muddy Mary in the front both in 2.35 I feel even better seeing that it was just recommended here but my only hold up is because of these damn Squorxs nipples to swap my hub. So waiting for this spoke driver to arrive is killing me, I just wanna ride my bicycle.

Inside Chain Reaction Cycles
Don't worry, the LBS will never become obsolete. However I recognize many will close because of the more competitive market, and it's a good thing! So many shops are poorly run, have staff that are arrogant and ignorant and have turnaround times that are ridiculous. I've seen plenty of shops shut down in recent years but I've also seen several open that are amazing! What sets them apart is their focus and passion. They're pillars in the community. They not only advocate for trail access but lead the charge in getting them built, they're welcoming to everyone, pay their mechanics a fair wage and specialize in services such as fitting, suspension or sale of used bikes. Some are even doing mobile repair, something that's really going the challenge them over the coming years. So despite online retailers such as CRC making it harder to run a shop, at the end of the day we all win. The shops that would otherwise fail (at least around my area) will just do so sooner.
