Video: The Basics of Modern Mountain Bike Geometry - The Explainer
@nvranka: I am riding a very similar bike to yours ( HD3) my advice is if you like it keep riding it. I have tried newer versions of bikes and found that there are trade offs more so than “upgrades”. Longer, lower, slacker, means harder to ride thru tight and twisty single track. more reach, wheel base and slacker head angle means the bike won’t turn with leaning it over , and the front wheel will slide right out if you don’t really put weight on the front of the bike. The steeper seat angle is great fro places where you ride straight up and straight down, but not so much for flat to rolling terrain. Are the new bikes better, maybe? Are new bikes really expensive, yes.

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 8 - Do We Need an Even Larger Wheel Size?
Let’s be honest, we don’t need the sizes we have now ( full suspension basically eliminates the advantages of larger wheels). The industry wants to sell more bikes, so more sizes... For perspective, go watch the Collective from 2008. Those guys, on 26” wheels, are absolutely shredding Whistler.

Ask Pinkbike: Carbon vs. Aluminum Rims, Mismatched Drivetains, Coil Shock Sag, & How Much Travel Does a Beginner Need?
@skelldify: To expand on what Pavel-Repak said, most trail/enduro bikes are not designed for regular bike park use. Their suspension designs are made for smaller jumps, features and trail rock size ( burly-ness). They can ride the park but, they have a lot less material and suspension travel than a DH bike. This means that stuff heats up faster, which wears out bearings , which increases friction, which wears out suspension quicker. All of this adds up to more Maintenance and part replacement/ fork and shock rebuilds.

I would tell the rider asking about carbon wheels at a downhill park that it’s a mistake to upgrade the wheels. Buy a cheap dh bike and save your new bike. For a little more than the price of a good set of Carbon wheels you can get a deal on a close out dh. Riding non-dh bikes on a regular basis at bike parks will wear a bike really quickly.

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 6 - Over Biked Or Under Biked?
Sometimes over biked, sometimes under biked , but it’s always the right bike when you’re out riding.

Review: Yeti SB140 - Little Wheels & Lots of Fun
@reverend27: You’re confused, racing has never been about fun, it’s about being the best at something. Which usually requires hard work, again hard work is not fun. Fun on the other hand, is about relaxing with your friends, stopping mid ride to check out a drop or a jump, not worrying about if you took the fastest line or what ever...

Review: Yeti SB140 - Little Wheels & Lots of Fun
@zanda23: Soooo, the Ripmo is 29”, not 27.5” Also, pedaling advantages of 29” bikes are great for fire roads but not tight single track, switchbacks, etc...
