East Bound and Down: Chattanooga, Tennessee
It is awesome to see some love for the Chattanooga local trails. I and my local GA crew have ridden Raccoon mountain countless times. Windrock up near Knoxville is a bomb of a park, and Baker's Creek Preserve has some A+++ flow trail. Then there's all the trouble you can get into in the Blue Ridge. If you love nature and you love riding, this is the place to ride.

Ban the Berms? – Opinion
The purpose of a berm on most trails is so you can carry huge speed through it to send the next massive jump coming up. If the trail is a bunch of berms with no features then I guess I see his point.

Dainese Trail Skins 2 Knee Guards – Review
@shorerider54: You're probably right about that, I wore Dainese gear back in my motorcycle days and it was always considered top notch, protection wise. They could have redesigned the coverage of their water proof bib, though.

Pinkbike Poll – Electronic Components on Your Mountain Bike?
Why does the title say, 'electronic components on YOUR mountain bike' while the poll is asking if there's a place in all of mountain biking for electronic components? Sure I believe there's someone out there that will buy electronic components. I also think that if I offered a Gucci branded Fox Shock there would be people who buy that. Would I buy it? Fack no.

April 2017 - Good Month or Bad Month?
@Hyakian: That would make sense if their claims were believable.

April 2017 - Good Month or Bad Month?
@Demoguy: Let's be precise. Wider hub flanges increase lateral stiffness at the cost of reduced...what do you call it? up-and-down stiffness. So the wheel is more likely to get squared off but less likely to taco. When was the last time any of us actually taco'd a wheel? On the other hand I squared off a rim in the last 5 years. Boost is a no go for me.

Couldn't have said it better. I can name only a handful of bikes that do anything interesting with regards to a relation between anti-squat and pedal kickback, and in all cases they do this by eliminating chain growth. The react design does not do that.

I don't understand what your argument is against the rain ruining the race. It did.

You're spot on. Everyone's talking like 29ers have some inherit advantage in DH but what I've read makes it sound like purely a fit issue for the tallest riders.
