"but, according to the Pinkbike populace, everytime you shift a front derailleur, you kill a kitten, a baby seal, and cause a toddler to be left in a hot car all while waving the confederate flag. Only the absolute lowest scum of the earth would use a front derailleur, right? That's what i've been told by the members of Pinkbike, so it must be true."

DH Fantasy League Has Been Updated for Round 1
@Chingus-Dude: I hope he chimes in, but I think on the Losinj results article comments he said his bike doesn’t fit boost hubs :D F*cking bike industry, making our online contests difficult ;)

Commencal Teases a Brand New 29er Meta
The wet-frame photos are an interesting choice in my opinion. I’m sure it’s been done before but this is the first i’m seeing it, and i’m thinking it’s not a bad idea (: By making people notice that, they look more intently, high draws your eyes to the details. Not too shabby Commencal (: Also, such a great looking bike!

What the Heck is a Down-Country Bike? - Opinion
2014 Scott Scale 940, 760mm wide Renthal bar, 35 mm stem, dual Minion DHR’s, and adding a Fox dropper post soon. Utter blast. Stupidly, especially from an engineering and safety standpoint, my friend and I through his 140mm Fox 34 on for a few hours. That was the most fun I’ve had on this bike in a long time.

Santa Cruz's New Blur XC Bike - Review
@IllestT: that’s a good point though. Maybe it shows that geometry tables aren’t the single most important thing about a Bike ????????‍♂️ I know that if I got on a bike, and took it out on my most ridden trails, I can’t feel the difference between a half degree change in the head angle. Obviously buying an XC bike and wondering why it doesn’t feel like a dh bike would be stupid. Different bikes built for different purposes to those extremes will feel extremely different, as they should. But maybe we spend too much time picking apart every detail and mm and angle, which I think can be shown by the amount of people that reminisce on their old bikes with “terrible,” or “unrideable,” geometry, but rode them into the ground and had a blast on them. What do I know though, excuse my ramblings :)

Toa Enduro Photo Epic - Crankworx Rotorua 2018
I will advocate for the teenagers you mentioned... Not all of us are f*cking morons. I will ride some gnarly stuff with a half shell, while someone may ride some tamer stuff with a full face. So be it. One point to look at is the fact that I looked at every picture, and marvelled at the photography, relived the close racing, and the not so close racing, and never once thought, “oh, the pros don’t wear this stuff, so I don’t have to.” Everyone has different ability levels, comfort levels, and also financial situations. The second point that I would like to make is that I fully stand behind the fact that I would be safe in a half shell than a full face. The reason for this is because by feeling less claustrophobic, with better visibility, and more comfortable physically, I ride more relaxed on the bike, and I am less likely to go down. I understand your point of view, and see where it’s coming from, but I just happen to disagree :)

Tech Photos from the Pits at the Windrock Pro GRT
I mean laser etchings don’t necessarily mean that it’s close to production. I could laser etch that logo in my old high school. Of course I want it to be close to production... (:

Five Ten Pays Tribute to 4 Women Making a Difference
@Ramon1901: even as a guy, I can see how riding in a group of men could be intimidating, to younger riders, newer riders, and female riders. I think there are a lot of things that men and women both do great, but I think that this is a very valid point that was brought up in the article.

Five Ten Pays Tribute to 4 Women Making a Difference
I knew the comments weren’t going to be good. And the first main comment proved my point... In response to the article, this is so rad. I’m a man but I absolutely love seeing anyone and everyone on the trails. Kids, families, serious racers of any gender, it’s more people in the bike community, and that makes me smile. Well written article, and best wishes in getting more women out on the trails!

Cycling Brands Under Scrutiny in Gun Control Debate
@Hoob93: I’ve heard this stance before related to gun violence, rape, murder, and several other crimes but I struggle to fully comprehend it. Or rather, I fail to understand how someone could stand behind this viewpoint. I’m young. I haven’t been around the earth for 50 years. But somehow in this relatively short time I’ve been here, I’ve not raped, pillaged, stolen, killed, or committed any other sort of crime. And I certainly don’t see myself raping or murdering someone in the future, and if I did, I don’t think that the excuse of “it’s just human nature,” is going to fly...
