Nicholi Rogatkin Sends World First MTB 1440 at Red Bull District Ride
@fatfingur: He damn sure deserves to be in the finals and deserves the wins he gets. I would never deny that or question the results since I'm no judge. I just know what I personally like more. I think flow includes the whole run, not just what happens in the air. Pedalling between jumps like a madman, attacking the lips instead of just letting it roll trough naturally, overshooting the landing and landing with a hard hit.. These are not flow I think but I guess it has a lot to do with the nature of slopestyle or trick contest. The tracks are built for big tricks and have quite long gaps between each feature if you compare them to a more traditional dirt jump spot where it can be quite tight and there's no idle time between the jumps. But anyway, like I said in my first reply, I think Rogatkin is great and he gives a lot to the sport. But to me personally, his contest runs are more about being extreme and exciting rather than aestethics. But I guess the whole contest thing would be pointless without pushing the boundaries.

I don't think peiple hate Rogatkin. I think it's just more about how stuff is judged. I think Rogatkin is great but.I still rather watch someone with less extreme tricks and more flow. Glad I don't have to be a jugde at a slopestyle contest..

Too Long? Too Slack? Not Enough? – Pinkbike Poll
@railin: No. Your cranks are supposed to be quite level when descending so the crank width doesn't really affect the clearance then. Only when pedalling they go closer to ground.

30 Second-ish Bike Checks - EWS Rotorua 2017 - Video
@salespunk: You mean compression or rebound? I always had to run both ttx and stx on the slowest rebound or one click open.

Pinkbike Poll - A Hardtail As Your Only Bike?
If I had to keep only one of my bikes, that would surely be my Dartmoor Primal with 160 Vengeance. Apart from dirt jumping, it's the only bike I rode the whole winter. That's the bike I raced enduro last summer too. Very capable and fun bike to ride. But then again since I already have that E29 I might as well keep that one too. And the road bike, fixie, dirt jumper...

Specialized S-Works Enduro 29 - Review
I live in Finland and have an STX on my Enduro. I've had to replace it twice under warranty, but it's quite effortless. Call the shop and they order a new (or a serviced) shock and they call you back when the new shock arrives. Takes about 3 days. Same applies with normal service.

Pinkbike Poll: Why Do You Trail Build?
It's a funny thing this how this works in different areas. Where I live there's lots of riders and tons of nice trails to go ride on. The trails 99% just natural trails that are formed by people walking on them. The first problem here is, that most riders are into basic xc and trail riding and that's what our local woods are best for. So if you want to ride a jump or a berm you pretty much have to build it your self. The second problem is that even if you want to build something it's very difficult when the woods are full of big rocks and roots and there's very few places where there's enough soil to stick a showel in. Not to mention that a 20m vertical drop is concidered a huge descent here haha. So apart from a few special spots it doesn't really make too much sense trying to build anything here for trail riding or fr unless you want to block an existing path with features that would be annoying for others using (walking or riding) the same trails. I love digging and to improve existing stuff or to create new stuff to ride on. I have only spent like 10 hours this year digging something for trailbikes to ride on. But lucky enough, after our last jump spot was put down by the city, we were able to find a new place where you can actually dig and not hit your showel against big rocks and roots ALL the time. So digging dirt jumps is what I have spent pretty much all my spare time this year on. There's nothing like the feeling of riding something for the first time that you have built from scratch and finding that it actually works. And the feeling of bringing friends to such place and see that your creations brings big smiles on their faces as well.
