Video: Kirt Voreis Jibs Down Snow Summit Trails
That's Vail's formula for Noworthstar: charge $62 per day, do zero work on the trails. Honestly, if Vail would do half the work that Tamba does on Tahoe's free, public-access trails, their lift tickets might be worth half of what they ask. The popularity of the place mystifies me.

Pinkbike Poll: What is Your MTB Capital of the World?
Oakridge, Oregon gets my vote for Loamtastic-Grin Capital of the World. Caught Eula Ridge zone at utter perfection after storm cycle. Have never grinned so much in my entire life. I reserve the right to change my mind if I ever make it up to Squamish and manage to grin more there ;~>

Review: Rotor 2INpower MTB Crank
Your price threshold is wildly unrealistic. Strain-gauge based power tech has been on bikes for over 30yrs. Price has come down from $3000 to as low as $350 for a reliable and accurate MTB power meters (Stages). Companies like 4iiii who have tried to push the price below the $300 mark have earned themselves a terrible rep for reliability. Strain gauges are precision instruments, & you need good engineers to design electronics that provide consistent data capture & wireless connectivity. Over the course of the last decade, we saw the price of reliable, entry-level power tech drop from ~$500 (Powertap Hub) to $350 (Stages XT Crankarm). You can wait another decade and pray that prices hit $200, or you can buy proven tech right now and actually use it while you're still young enough to produce your peak wattage

Review: Giro's New Manifest Helmet
Why would they texture the lower shell to look like raw foam from a disposable beer cooler? Giro's Roc-Loc fit system is the best in the biz, but their design team really needs major help w/ aesthetics: this helmet looks like you're wearing a Star-Wars ball & socket droid on your head!

Round 2 Voting Closed: 2019 Pinkbike Photo of the Year Contest
Desire to ride a line and aesthetics of a photo are two totally separate things. Shot of Brendog upside down at Rampage grabs both my eye and my gut but has nothing to do with my riding. That's not a strike against the image: it got my vote as the most striking photograph in that matchup. We're voting for photo of the year, not trick or trail of the year.

First Look: Maxxis' New Dissector Tire is Made for Dry, Loose Conditions
@GBeard: Sadly, it's not just a weight thing. I weigh 150lbs and have seriously warped two DHR2 EXO WTs in the last 12 months. Maxxis warrantied the first one since it happened w/ like zero tire wear. Since these are on a bike for tight, technical, undulating local trails I don't really notice the warpage until I get on bigger, straighter fireroads above 30mph. It's not an issue limited to just Maxxis tho. I run pressures in the low 20psi range, and hit corners fairly hard. Have Specialized & Schwalbe rear tires that have warped as well, albeit much later in their wear life.
