Your Bike Is Fine Already. Just Ride It. - Opinion
Still on a 7-year-old 26. Aluminum. 2x9. It's always been a great bike. Demoed a 29er last summer. I liked it, but it was only marginally better than what I've got. I'd say most of the performance difference was the 1x drivetrain. That left me impressed with my 7-year-old bike. Anyway, the time will eventually come when I will have to replace it. But the time is not now. Spent today riding the pump track and bitty jumps with my 3-year-old son on an unseasonably warm, 70-degree November day. It was good.

Plowing Ashes with James Doerfling - Video
The flow video. The stutter video kept making me think there was something wrong with my internet connection.

The videos are great and all, but can we just talk about what the hell is going on in the photo at the bottom of the page?

Trek Session 9.9 DH 27.5 - Review
In all the years and all the reviews they've done on Pinkbike, I'm surprised -- utterly shocked, I say -- that this topic has never come up.

Ask Pinkbike: Setting Sag, New Fork or Shock, and More Wheel Size Trash
I don't know if Minaar's bike was one of them, but it seems like there was a short period where companies were just churning out 29ers for their riders on the WC for the sake of keeping up with the Joneses. It was kind of like, "Uh-oh, Brand X has a 29er! We better get one for our guy so he's not left in the dust..." (assuming he would be left in the dust). The result was some rushed jobs kind of cobbled together -- 27.5 frames with 29er forks and rear triangles, stuff like that. I got the impression a lot of these guys were getting some prototypes, for sure. Like I said, I don't remember if Minaar's was one of those, or if SC planned it better than most (I think they might have been the first???), but it could account for the bike snapping in half.

MUST WATCH: Matt Jones in 'Frames of Mind' - Video
I'm not going to neg prop you, but I don't see why it has to be about winning... That was a bad-ass video, that's all. It might not have been a contest, but that kid's winning at something there.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Care About Sustainability?
@Mojo348: Get rid of 85% of everyone? OK, you go first. Or are you one of the 15 percent you've deemed worthy enough to live. Let me guess...

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Care About Sustainability?
I'm originally from Gary, Ind., home of what was the largest steel producing plant in the world for U.S. Steel. There are also a number of other smaller steel mills nearby. Anyone who thinks steel production is easier on the environment than, say, carbon, is sadly mistaken and has never seen the warm, red glow of a coke plant on a humid, cloud-covered night. Or smelled the burning mixture of coke and iron ore wafting in the western breeze.
