Randoms: New Clip-In Platform Pedals, Sustainable Clothing, Bikepacking Gear, and More - Pond Beaver 2021
They're actually really interesting. Potentially my dream pedal: shimano clipless with Crank Bros. style cages and pins.

Pinkbike Podcast Episode 56: What Are the Most Important Inventions in Mountain Biking?
Solid list. I think droppers deserve higher consideration. Everyone talks about the value of modern geometry, (it's come up a few times in these comments), but I don't think enough credit is given to droppers for allowing that modern geo. Before then, a frame design had to account for your comfort when seated vs standing up without the ability to get the saddle out of the way. If you asked me to give up hydro brakes (and assuming cable disk brakes are still an option) or give up my dropper, I'd be riding BB7s tomorrow without a doubt.

Pinkbike Buyer's Guide: The Best Clip-In Trail MTB Pedals for 2021
@ptrcarson: great choice too. Anything that won't leave you slipping if you miss. I've had too many nasty shin gashes or slipped-foot crashes over the years to trust anything without pins unless I'm riding road or xc. I've been lucky so far that the few pairs of CB pedals I've had have held up very well, even if they do need occasional rebuilds. Of course, if I could get the CB pedal with a shimano spindle assembly, I'd be in pedal heaven. Edit: I guess my m636 pedals back in the day were pretty close. Those things were the best.

Pinkbike Buyer's Guide: The Best Clip-In Trail MTB Pedals for 2021
If you're like me and you sometimes miss a clip-in starting in the tech section, you should switch anyway. Being able to rely on your foot staying on the pedal even if you miss the clip-in is so handy. I was a long time shimano rider (20 years) and wouldn't go back from my mallets.

Pinkbike Poll: Would You Buy an Enduro Bike With a Dual-Crown Fork?
@briain: even if you keep the steerer tube, you could probably make it out of a lighter material and with less off it as it's not the only component transferring forces to the upper headset bearings. Heck, even right now the WC boxxers are only 300g heavier than my coil-sprung Helm. And as much as it's not a light fork, I'm not complaining about the weight. I haven't had a DC-forked bike in a couple of years, but man did I love steering them.

Pinkbike Poll: Would You Buy an Enduro Bike With a Dual-Crown Fork?
@abzillah: if the crown height is the same, why would it matter? Also, sure there was the knee-to-upper-crown bashing problem back in the day when people tried this, but bikes are so long that it's really not a big deal either.

Pinkbike Poll: Would You Buy an Enduro Bike With a Dual-Crown Fork?
As long as the turning radius was adequate and the weight was comparable, I would in a second. Stiffness, no crown creak, and added bonus of being able to service the fork without removing the stem/crowns. Sign me up.

Video: Jesse Melamed, Remi Gauvin & Miranda Miller Launch 'MGM Alternative' YouTube Channel
Wait, is that an iron ring on Jesse? Damn. I've always used the excuse of my commitment to engineering school and work as my excuse for not being a better rider. But Melamed had to go and show me up. (for non-Canadians: graduates of Canadian engineering schools all wear a small, iron ring on the pinky finger of their working hand)

[April Fools] Cane Creek Announces eeWings DIY Titanium Crankset
I can't decide what's better; the Employee of the Month poster or the bottle of argon gas.

Shimano Granted Patent Related to Wireless Electronic Shifting & Dropper Post
@luked5: Also K2/Proflex with the Smartshock on both the frame and Noleen fork in the late 90s. I think they did it first in the bike world.
