High Above's Slimmer Hip Pack, Smartwool's New Kit, Giant Loop's PLB Holder, & My 2x2 Moto Rack - Across The Pond Beaver
Nice setup! I used to do the same with my Triumph Tiger. The problem is having enough lockable storage to put all the moto gear in. I switched from hard side cases to soft bags and now I'm to afraid to leave all my moto gear in them while I'm out on the bike. Definitely miss the moto/mtb days!

New Tools, Pumps & Tire Repair Kits From Lezyne - Across the Pond Beaver
Can someone explain the situation where a "pack pliers" is really needed. If a chain breaks, just break the broken link with a chain breaker and put on a master link, seat the master link with your pedal...I just don't understand why it's needed...why would you need to break the master link loose on the trail?...someone enlighten me

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 6 - Over Biked Or Under Biked?
I used to think being under biked was the way to go, but I recently switched from my fully rigid 29+ stache to a full stache and it completely transformed my local trails. Being in Minnesota it seemed that any double bouncer was overkill, but now everything is a jump. Leb is now a totally different trail for me, features that were super sketch are now way more fun...I'm ashamed to say over biked now makes sense.

Opinion: Ode to an Oddball - Rediscovering Two-Wheeled Fun
Really glad to see this article. A lot of people miss the point of 29+ and full rigid mountain bikes, those two things were truly made for each other. Just look at Trek's success with the Stache lineup, they are selling a ton here in Minnesota. And the Krampus too; last time I was up at Cuyuna it was like every other bike was a Krampus. There is something very freeing and simple about these types of bike - they just always work. OG singletrack or gravel riding, doesn't matter, just point and shoot.

Opinion: 4 Lessons From Riding Inexpensive Bikes
Would be interesting if PB did a poll on how much everyone's bike costs that they are currently riding, how much in upgrades they've spent on it (not including replacement parts), and where they primarily ride (state-wise). I'd be very curious to see a real-time cost spread.

Squidworx Makes Debut with Modular Flat Pedal
What's wrong with forged vs machined? For this particular shape a forging makes more sense in terms of manufacture-ability; machining would require multiple set ups. Forging does have a high initial tooling cost so part of that 160 is probably tooling amortization. Looks like the replaceable bodies are injection molded so that will have a somewhat high tooling cost as well. I think it actually shows this start up is really thinking ahead since they invested in forging tooling and didn't just machine everything. Kudos to Squidworx.

Video: Crossing the Rubicon on eMTBs & 4x4s with Mark Weir
@highfivenwhiteguy: Yes for sure and I agree with that. MTB, Road, snow shoeing, trail running, hiking, climbing, xc skiing, etc. All those things can be done without motors. I just don't understand when people make blanket statements about not using petroleum for recreation, especially on sites like this that are completely based around recreational products that use massive amounts of petroleum to be manufactured, shipped, stocked, and sold.

@highfivenwhiteguy: Sure moderation is great idea, but that's not reality. So no motorized boats, jet skis, dirt bikes, ATV's, Side-by-Sides, rock crawlers, snowmobiles...?
