I like to pedal. I also quite like standing on pedals and coasting. And jumping off things.

Formula Prototype Hype, e*13 Updates, & SKF Mud Scrapers - Bike Connection Winter 2018
It appears you may be an outlier based on downvotes,but I agree completely. The DH bike is ridiculous and gorgeous, but I find the frame featured here to be much more harsh looking. No idea about ride, just totally based on looks.

Crankworx and FMBA Launch Slopestyle World Championship
@robito: the way to pay more is to get non-industry based sponsors. Mtb is a small market, especially something like slope. Frankly slope has a better chance than DH or Enduro to be a bigger money sport just based on its presentability to arc audience.

Onza Aquila Aaron Gwin Signature DH Tire - Review
@Poulsbojohnny: I’m no expert as I still am tubed, but my understanding is the goal is to eliminate pinch flats between rubber and tubes on harder impacts. Tubes pinch relatively easy compared to tubeless, and the insert help to reduce the likelihood of sidewall issues arising. Again, that’s just what I’ve gleaned from reading, I still have tubes all over my shop at home...

No Fly Zone: GoPro Leaving the Drone Business
@oronaut: bike and gear. Year was a spellcheck issue. Where the guy used the term faggotry twice. Exactly what you were talking about. My point is that if you think that is a shitty term to use (it entirely Is, we seem to agree on this), there is likely a better way to convince any person they might be doing something less than rad than to use other shitty terms to belittle them. Pretty simple really.

No Fly Zone: GoPro Leaving the Drone Business
@oronaut: I assume you mean the year and bike comments he made? Sure, slightly unnecessary, but hardly the worst thing on Pinkbike. Hell, I think pb's own writers have crossed the line more egregiously than this in the past. While I respect your intention, I have found starting with insults is a poor way to convince others that you are making a good point...

Sam Pilgrim Signs with Haibike
@vinay: all your points are valid and well reasoned. That said, it is not a North American access issue. It is an American access issue. The legality of back country and protected area use in the US and Canada is extremely different. We also have a drastically larger country with 1/10 the population, so you know, we have a ton of wild space. No issues with anything else you wrote, though I may disagree with a few of your takes. Just wanted to point out the legality. I think that is the biggest issue surrounding e bikes is that every country or potential market has regulations and laws the effect how something can or cannot be used. If trails are being constantly closed where you live, it's fair to be fearful of something that may lead to more of that. If access isn't an issue, you likely have less problem with e bikes. I have run into some clowns on quads riding up a downhill trail and been on the verge of a fistfight, so everyone has their issues...
