Photo Story: Mountain Biking in Chernobyl
Background radiation from being on a plane (where you are being shielded by the plane fuselage) is completely 100% the opposite from being onsite and in direct line with actual uranium radiation from a disaster. Radioactive isotopes have settled into absolutely everything around Chernobyl; dirt, any objects, the air, everything. You walk on the ground, you breath the air, you touch the pretty objects... you are guaranteed having long term effects of radiation poisoning. You are absolutely fooling yourself and potentially harming thousand of others that could buy into the belief that Chernobyl is safe: I will repeat again - it is NOT safe to be there for any amount of time, no matter how much you pay the government official to get a pass. Shame on Pinkbike for glorifying this type of behavior, and shame on you for spreading this misinformation that nuclear radiation is as safe as a plane ride.

No way, its a completely safe and non retarded idea to go hang out in Fukushima or Chernobyl or whatever. What could possibly ever happen?

The whole "time/distance/shielding" thing is lost on you people. I have spent 6 years in and around nuclear weapons and nuclear reactors, with multiple hours of actual military training (not a stupid youtube video). This shit is like skin cancer... you dont get it after a sunburn, you get it years after an episode of high exposure. You cant go into a designated nuclear disaster and expect to come out completely safe. You WILL have some weird cancer pop up that you may not survive. Is that worth looking cool on pinkbike? No, and you are all idiots for wanting to go there.

My favorite part is when the announcer says "Feel... Control." and the guys foot slips.

It is not smart to go play around at the site of the worst nuclear disaster in history. Chernobyl will not be safe to visit for about 300 years. Kicking up dust, touching anything, or even getting close to the uranium core building will is lethal. You will not feel the effects today, but you are almost 100% guaranteed to die due to a side effect (tumors, thyroid cancer, etc). I cannot stress this enough: DO NOT visit this place. I don't care what video games, Pinkbike, or the people that make money off the tours tell you... there is nothing there worth risking your life for.

QBP's High-End Whisky Carbon Components will Sell on Amazon & eBay
So QBP goes out and gets 12 vendors to buy their stuff. These vendors outlay a significant dollar amount to have inventory on hand so that QBP doesn't have to carry inventory. Smart, right? Now you get to sell on Amazon and the seller gets to pick you! Right? QBP clearly has good intentions, but the reality is the Buy Box. No one searches through a list for their favorite vendor, they just click Buy it Now. Amazon just cycles through the list of 3Ps, so if there are a dozen authorized vendors, you will get a 1 in 12 chance of selling your item. If Amazon gets in the listing, no one will sell anything.. meaning they have to sit on their inventory until Amazon sells out, then the 1 in 12 starts up again. Now if you are a vendor with inventory you have to sell, the best option is to violate MAP by a penny or create your own listing. QBP might fight you, but that is easily mitigated because of the First Sale doctrine. That screws the other 11 vendors trying to sell their items too, but who cares, right? Not QBP. The other HUGE issue is that demand on Amazon is static - meaning if an item only sells one per day, you cant change that. QBP sells to 12 vendors, that means you get one sale per 12 days (due to Amazon cycling through vendors). QBP now has a large amount of inventory they sold through to 12 vendors in Q1, but they wonder why no one is buying anymore inventory in Q2, Q3, Q4, etc. So to mitigate the lack of orders from 3Ps, they sell a whole bunch to Amazon hoping to generate more sales, but now they have screwed the 3Ps they said they were trying to help. Due to the static demand, there hasn't been an increase in sales.. just orders, and now Amazon demands they buy back their unsold inventory. Since no 3Ps were able to sell due to Amazon being in the BB, QBP has no more cash to buy it back and has to file bankruptcy. Wash, rinse, repeat. It happens to thousands of Amazon resellers every year. Short Sell your QBP stock now. Edit: I just saw that Salsa and Surly are both owned by them too. Rip.

Video: The Privateer is Back for Season 2
@thenotoriousmic: I for one would have been SEVERELY disappointed with anyone other than Adam. I will settle for nothing less than seeing him win an EWS.

Finals Photo Epic: Southern Discomfort - 2019 Windrock Pro GRT
Due to the inertia of the mud slinging down and towards the back, having a fender stick out in the front doesn't make any sense. And it doesn't look all that good either. The Marsh Guard keeps the mud out of your face as much as possible, and its really all you need.

10 Pro Bikes From the NZ Enduro
I rode a Trek 69er single speed for a few years. While I wasn't doing whips, the biggest issue with handling it had was the 120mm stem. I dropped it to a 40mm with 787 bars and it handled great after that.
