The Most Interesting Bike at Outdoor Demo - Interbike 2017
@Poulsbojohnny: Why should that be ridiculous? Simple question: As someone who cares about it, why sould I buy a a frame, that doesn't fit a bottle, if there's 10 different frames in the same category, that ride just as good, cost the same AND provide space for a bottle? Obiously I wouldn't pick a crappy frame over a great one, just because of this, but as long as there are frames making both possible without sacrifice, I see no reason. A lot of I my riding is about 1-2 hours. For such a short time, a single bottle is enough, my phone and keys are in my pockets and the spare tube + multitool is in a seat pack thats tightly attached to my seattube & top tube due to my dropper post, without any rattling or getting in the way. My pump is mounted to my bottle cage aswell. Furthermore, even if I am on a longer ride, wearing a backpack, the bottle means almost a liter less on my back. My fullsuspension trailbike lets me fit a regular bottle without any issues and I would not want to miss it.

@endor: Whenever possible, I avoid wearing a backpack. As long as my ride is short enough for one bottle to be sufficent, I pack a sparetube plus tools in a small bag to the frame. Therefore, if a frame has no space for a bottlecage, I am not going to buy it. Why should I, if there's plenty of other great competitors, that manage to offer both? There's some other people around, that actually care about it, so I wouldn't call it ridiculous.

Rhys Verner Rides the Kona Process G2 in British Columbia’s Sea to Sky Corridor
@ejopdahl: definetly agree. In our last project, we used an external recorder for the first time. Most of the time we managed to record the actual sound of the shot, but sometimes it's just not possible, due to wind, additional noise of the cameraguy or because we can't mount the recorder to the bike/rider. In these cases we tried to record sounds that are as identical as possible. If you're interested, check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-J2suR5mb4g

Tippie, Doerfling and Stowards: Generations - Video and Photo Epic
Holy Crap, Stowards took me to Whistler on the last day of the season, when I was that 16 year old German exchange student that wanted nothing more than to ride BCs trails, a few years ago. And now Im seeing videos of him with Tippie, Im stoked. Definetly one of the nicest people in mountainbiking I have met.

I Say "E-bike", You Say... - Sea Otter 2016
"If you are not in good shape riding a bicycle is not fun on the trails." You heard something about challenge? A buddy of mine started out riding last year, being not as physically fit nor technically fit as me. When going on rides together, he almost died at every ascent, he tried to keep up with me(or even just get up in his own pace). Did it kill his fun? Of course it didnt. It motivated him to become fitter. Nowadays, people are doing less and less of physical work, even the sport they do in their leisure time doesnt compensate. Should that be further promoted, by saying "instead of getting fit, get a motor"? Im not discussing the "let people ride what they want." part of your argument, but getting a bike and expecting to be fit straight away is really bad thinking. If you're not in a shape, good enough to properly ride a bike, then you definetly shouldn't be out on demanding trails, but first get in a healty condition first.
