Transition Bicycles Is The Latest Victim of Bike Theft
@bigtuna00: Yet another concerning fact. I honestly can't believe users don't have to the ability to delete photos.

@fisc2307: FaceBook may strip metadata during the upload process but do you think they're not collecting it for their purposes?

Transition Bicycles Is The Latest Victim of Bike Theft
@bigtuna00: I just went through quite a few Buy/Sell posts and looked for photos that appeared to be taken by a mobile device (biggest culprit for including location data). I downloaded a dozen or so and examined the EXIF data. Fortunately I didn't find any GPS data. That said, for most I can tell exactly what kind of device was used, the software version of the device, and the original date/time. To do further testing, I uploaded an image with GPS data. I then downloaded it from Pinkbike. The GPS data was intact. Check out the photo in my profile in the album titled 'Norway'. Download the image and look up the coordinates. Is it really Norway? Honestly, this is really concerning and very negligent on Pinkbike's part.

Pinkbike Poll: What Was the Greatest Advancement In Mountain Bike Technology?
@lacuna: You clearly ride much different trails than I do. I'm constantly using my dropper; and yes, I've been mountain biking since before dropper posts existed. So I'm well acquainted with QR post collars. It's simply not the same and it's not just a minor inconvenience. Not having a dropper post would completely change how I've become accustomed to riding. As I said elsewhere: the dropper post isn't much of a game changer for people that pedal up fireroads but on techy, undulating trails a dropper is basically a necessity. Otherwise you're constantly compromising somewhere because no one is going to raise their saddle for every little climb to lower it a few minutes later.

I applaud your concise and logical argument but you're forgetting that the development of modern geometry was largely guided by the introduction of the dropper post. In light of that, I feel like you've proven that dropper post is the only correct option here.

Brake technology is huge but it seems like the natural progression. Modern bikes basically wouldn't exist without brakes and it simply seems inevitable that stronger brakes would eventually be developed. The dropper post doesn't seem so inevitable. Can you imagine still having QR post collars and having to get off an adjust it after every climb? I know my riding style changed at lot when I got a dropper.

@Kmccann137: Imagine modern geometry without a dropper post though. I stand by my vote for dropper as the greatest and most innovative advancement.
