Three Cheers for Damp, Dark, and Deep
To ride in the rain or not really depends on where you are. Had a nice mountain rain storm yesterday afternoon here in North Lake Tahoe. I got my dogs, bike and gear ready to go as fast as possible so I could get out on the trails and enjoy the rain. Fantastic ride.

Ask Pinkbike: Bears, Semi-Slicks, and Brakes
What about a pepper spray gun? How effective are those on animals and are they easier and faster to use than regular spray?

The Mountain Bike Tourist - Brevard, North Carolina
@ShreddieMercury: what is there that is not "cool" about guided tours on on days like pictured above? I don't see why anyone would have a problem with it, why do you?

Finals Result: Fort William DH World Cup 2017
In the interview after, Minnar says he also made a big mistake as well that cost him time. Don't think anyone had a "perfect" mistake free run.

Fort William DH World Cup 2017 Track Walk – Photo Epic
" No 29" Gambler for Brendan, sticking to trusty old 27.5..." Really shouldn't call 27.5" "old" since it's only been around like 3 years. Also, "trusty" is a bit of a stretch since teams are already moving to 29" after just a few years of 27.5". Not much trust in the 27.5" platform there, huh?

Trek Session 29 vs 27.5 – First Ride
@FatTonyNJ: Great point. Faster is faster. How much faster is an irrelevant data point to determining what is faster. For example: Even though there is no statistical difference in speed between a plane A that can travel 500 mph and plane B that can travel 515 mph, plane B is still faster and you cannot say plane A is as fast as plane B because the difference in speed (which is a measure of time) was not statistscly significant. So what matters is simply what is faster, not by how much. So, do a bunch of runs and if all or a very nigh percentage of runs are faster on a 29er, then one could say 29ers are faster.

Greg Minnaar's Santa Cruz V10 29er - Bike Check
@matteosignorelli: Agree I think the bike industries new focus on the 29" wheel size and its clear advantages is really a huge punch in the tits to the 27.5" wheel size. Especially to the tits of companies like Giant that just made shit up in hopes we all move to 27.5" so they could increase their profit not having to design frames for multiple wheel sizes. 26" has an advantage in agility, acceleration and quickness and 29ers have an advantage in rollover and pure speed. 27.5" was interesting at first because it was new. Now that we've had it for a year or two we've lost interest and are either looking for ways to make the 27.5" perform more like a 29er with plus tires or we are back to the 29" because plain old 27.5" is just boring.

Startups: Proudfoot Prime Chromoly Trail Bike – Sea Otter 2017
@peleton7: Yes, the material must be utilized correctly, or in other words, the frame needs to be built well. Keith Bontrager was talking about steel when he said "strong, light, cheap... pick two" which to me means steel needs to be built right to work well. I own quite a few old late 80's/early 90's steel MTB frames including a Bridgestone MB1 (Japenese made with Japenese made Tange Steel) and a Bontrager Race (American made with American made True Temper Steel). The mb1, while very compliant and lovely to ride, turns into a wet noodle when pushed while the bonty remains responsive and lively when stressed and my XXL bonty weighs in around 23lbs. I am 220lb so i am pushing these old bikes pretty hard. :)

It's also faster, lasts longer, looks better and can be repaired easier. I have been waiting for a long time for some quality full squish steel options. Not sure why pinkbike hasn't done an article on the starling murmur yet, but I have yet to see a bike on this site I want more than the murmur.
