I have built trail for 10yrs, 6-7 volunteer and 3 professionally, and it was fantastic! Currently I'm building in ground swimming pools which is pretty similar, but still building on the side at Red Clay Playground. I'm an old dog trying to learn some new tricks, dirt jumping!

East Bound and Down: Chattanooga, Tennessee
@kjjohnson: Its a heckuva lot steeper than this too, I redid this turn back a couple years ago anticipating the "pro line" would be nearest the tree over the top of the root and diving into the corner. Sure enough!

Spotted: Gee Atherton Aboard a Trek Session 29er
which means that the 26" and 27.5" stuff will get cheaper right!?

Randoms: One More Lap Around North America's Best Bike Expo - Sea Otter 2017
RST can do that price point, because they have been making the big names forks for a long time! I'm excited that they're finally doing a high end line and intend to go that route on my next fork purchase. On my radar right now are X-Fusion, RST, and SR Suntour, they're the "cheaper options" but I feel like its because they're more realistic about the actual price point vs the big brands who are just making you pay for the name.

Dual Slalom Highlights Video - Sea Otter 2017
@bizutch: so your definition of dual slalom is what? exactly like the course at the Sea Otter? How long is it? What kind of elevation do you need for that kind of race?

@gojammedia: I believe the word is that Neko has a 5 year deal written out with Windrock park, I mean think of how much exposure he's gotten in one year, 4 to go!

Danny MacAskill and Hans Rey Freeriding in Arkansas - Video
Yes Danny did do much of the riding, but I happen to be friends with a guy who rode trials for Cirque Du Soleil for abt 5 years, he no longer does much riding. His ankles are pretty much shot, there is only so much your body can take of 10-12 ft vertical drop to flats before it just stops working right. I don't blame him at all for letting Danny do all the hard work, hell I'm 30 and feel like 45 or older due to smashing around on my dh bike when I was younger. Besides, the part that he did participate in, that was really pretty cool, under that sculpture, that was artistic.

Pinkbike Poll: Which Major Component is the Least Evolved Part of a Mountain Bike?
@Bustacrimes: Dude, I go through derrailleurs like freakin air that I breathe, got a new derr the other day, put a freakin stick through it and bent the hanger and cage. I ride my bike like a monster truck, if I could do away with the derr I would, and then I'd learn to maintenance it on my own, because I'm thrifty like that. A gearbox would be rad, perfect gear range, all packaged up in a tidy box, keeps the mud out, no derrs to bend/break off, no chain slap, I don't even care about the weight, if I could slap one on my bike right now i'd do it!
