Pinkbike Poll: What Are Your Favorite & Most Hated Workshop Tasks?
Brake bleeding is actually one of my faves. I've bled my Shimanos so many times that now I know how it's supposed to work. The first probably 4 times, it was a messy PITA! Now it's like reflex.

Gift Ideas for The Trail Rider - Pinkbike's 2019 Festive Gift Guide
Had this thought the other day. Cushcore inside tubeless tires...I get that you can run lower pressure and that's an advantage, but for maintaining your own bike it's so much easier to just use a tube.

Looks like you can fit some bottles and glasses in there. Might be a fun way to take a break at the top.

Had to scroll back up just to confirm the poster was an American. My country has lost its damn mind.

Where Have All the Women's Bikes Gone? A Look Inside an Ever-Changing Market
In as much as the article is interesting, when I read a title like this all I can think is: $. If WSD bikes made enough $ to justify the cost of their creation, then companies would keep making them. My feeling is that the results of the "science" here probably depend a lot on what the "scientists" on the company payroll want to find.

Photo Report: TransNomad - Multi Stage Racing in the Pyrenees
Well...sorry to state the obvious but those are beautiful photographs. I'm no photographer but the angles and scenes are great, and so is the color quality. It would be awesome to see a collection like this for The Whole Enchilada and some other iconic trails.

Pinkbike Poll: Will Your Next Bike Have More or Less Suspension Travel?
160/160 is the last travel range that still kinda rode like a trail bike to me. 180/170 started to feel more like a park bike. 160 is a good number, that's probably what I'd go for in a next bike.
