Interview: The Professor Studying the Connections Between Mountain Biking & Music
I just read this and I realised that I always used to ride better when I had my headphones in. I had a playlist made entirely of songs from various mtb films and web videos that was named “riding”. Looks like I need to bring that playlist back and get my headphones back in - for science! :tup:

Ask Pinkbike: Knee Pad Suggestions, Tires for the Southwest & Do I Want a Singlespeed?
Maybe it’s down to my bmx roots but I’ve always ridden singlespeed. I’ve tried riding with gears, they haven’t made a gear ratio low enough for me to stay in the saddle and climb slowly like normal people yet. My legs simply refuse. But on my singlespeed climbing requires my whole body in an out of saddle all or nothing effort involving a lot of momentum before the climb and that’s what I’m used to. Plus I’ve always ridden dirt jump mtb’s but I’ve used them for everything from pump tracks and dh runs to laps of xc trails. I could buy the right bike for the job but when I can keep up with my mates on their full sus trail/enduro/dh bikes on the descents on my dirt jumper with only a rear brake do I need to hand over a 4 figure sum for a 160mm full sus bike? Not really. Being faster than your mates on the fun bit (downhill) is better than being faster on the crap bit (uphill) anyway haha!

Pinkbike Poll: How Long is Your Riding Season?
All year round here in the UK if you’re not scared to get muddy and add a layer or 2 and something waterproof in the winter months. Slipping around in the wet makes you faster in the dry anyway.
