What Are You Running This Weekend? - Leogang DH World Cup
@mollow: but: although that is true it is truer for 2.8 and wider and less true for 2.5 compared with say 2.3. Which makes 2.5ish maxxisses quite a sweet spot. This is even truer for loose conditions. Besides a 2.3 mary is likely like a 2.5WT maxxis (just a guess). Remebrer. There is no truth. Just perspective. Goodbye.

Rocky Mountain Altitude Powerplay EMTB – First Ride
E bikes are like masturbation. When you cant get the real shit you make do with the surrogate. Ok to be a bit more serious it is why you dont put barends on riser bars or why you dont fondle your mom or sister. Yes, it is possible, sure, might be fun, but it just opens a whole other can of worms that makes it not worth it. It might work on bike parks where you dont have lifts. It might work if you limit it not by speed but by total system power to equal what an average rider puts out (surely not FTP 250). My 2 cents.

They did some blurring on the computer screen to not divulge their engineering secrets. Funny ; )

Win a €12,000, All Expenses Paid, Ultimate Adventure with Bikester
You are getting it all wrong. It asks fir some creativity in how you picture yourself. If you are totally wasted anything becomes an adventure. I was thinking if doing an endurbro version of the prodigy smack my b!tch up video. Take any chance to abuse some substance and sexually assault anyone on your way to your KOM on your trail center loop and its parking lot.

Pinkbike Poll: If Racing Does Improve the Breed, Will You Trade up to 29-inch Wheels?
@dudeism: it depends on the ground conditions: the rougher or softer tge faster the 29 will be. On a perfect hill the 27.5 ir 26 would be faster as they have less inertia and accelerate faster. But rifing is not only speed. Sometimes speed is fun in natural trails as it allows you to hit thungs faster and jump further, but you miss the more raw ride of the smaller wheels where traction can be quicker on off and can be controlled more by handling the bike. Also quick acceleration can allow you ti hit stuff fast. It is really difficult to say which is more fun. Depends a lot on the course and even then. So the evil trick is that they keep us in confusion and we can never settle. I like both my 29 and 26 but when it is time to upgrade stuff you never know which one first.

Top 3 Value Products In a Crowd of Pricey Parts? Sea Otter 2017
@WaterBear: to fit the budget a rigid fork might be better than a suspension fork that works bad. i don't know the lower tier rockshoxes but i remember my fusion slant rl2 and all the story that you would nearly not notice the difference between that and a pike or so. i can tell you i did feel the difference, in the dampening, in the spring. but not only because the fork kept you less composed and you had to go slower for that reason, also because stuff just did not work like the touted mid valve solution did not help much, made things worse and behaved a bit like the float boost valve just much earlier in the travel. what i know is that i can go faster on my deville than on my pike. so maybe value depends on who it is for. a recreational fork for a recreational rider. maybe pink bike is not the platform for recreational riders. as value for an enthusiast i would describe something like radon, maybe some stuff from yt, surely there are other brands, say a bike around €2000-2500. so i can buy last year's pike for €600 and over time when time to service i can upgrade air spring and damper. Thats quite vale for me if a new bos is what 1400-1600?
