Transition Launch Long-Awaited Revised TR11 Downhill Bike
everytime a new mullet bike comes out, it gives me joy knowing that somewhere out there, mattp76 is having an aneurysm about it.

Short or Long-Travel: Which Is The Best All-Round MTB?
I thought this was going to be a downcountry vs enduro thing, but it's an overforked trail bike vs a very long travel enduro. in the case of downcountry vs enduro, i'd say the best single bike depends on what you ride most, but for me, I find a short travel bike to be more fun on more trails. in the test case given in this article, the 130/150 bike for sure. no thanks to riding a 170/180 travel bike on anything but DH/bike park trails.

Video: Exploring Fear & Getting Older in 'Unrealistic'
@likeittacky: predictable. you toxic positivity keyboard warriors always crack the facade at the drop of a hat and suddenly turn into insane raging assholes, slinging as many insults as they can fit into a paragraph, whenever challenged with even the smallest insinuation of actual facts. Muscle development and retention capability doesn't only pertain to bodybuilding, genius. I also didnt say that no one over 40 was fit, I said, and science says, that someone over 40 has to work harder to achieve and maintain fitness. I'd apologize that reality makes you so angry that you instantly drop your new age positivity facade, except i'm not sorry at all. facts are facts. fact #1 you can become fit, or maintain fitness past 40. fact #2: it takes more mental and physical effort to do so. for a very simple and obvious example, look at almost any professional sport, and as you already know, realize that the majority of pro athletes worldwide and across genders are in their 20's, and almost none are over 40. and no. it wasn't just about "lean healthy body mass with endurance and strength". the comment that got you flipping your lid originally just said "it's harder to stay in shape."

@likeittacky: that's a cute positivity take but it doesn't match reality. it takes more work to stay in shape when you're older. period. it's biologically more difficult to grow and maintain muscle at an older age. and although you dont want to admit it to yourself, you said as much. it's good you're *working* so hard to stay positive, but the scientific, physical, biological reality is that it's more difficult, and takes more work to stay fit when you are older. It is a proven fact that you reach peak muscle mass by 40, and also you reach your peak of developing new muscle by 40 at the latest.

@RonSauce: I actually thought the same thing. persistence, diligence, and a healthier diet sounds like more work to me. definitely more work than it took when I was younger.

Really felt this video. I'm 44, ride very similar terrain to what's in the video, and in the last three years have had 3 major injuries that have set me back a lot in my riding. Single and no kids, so not as much responsibility, but...the fear is real at this age. Def riding a lot slower and second guessing myself on features now, which I hate. Prob gonna take this season to explore more backcountry long rides and less DH bike park. Thought about giving up riding after the last crash, but I dont think I can. I'm here for a good time, not a long time, or something.

Video: Welcome to the 2022 Downcountry Field Test
@Baller7756: unfortunately have to agree with you. I got a much milder TBI this summer riding park, and out of frustration with my slow recovery and the lack of info from doctors, I joined a few online TBI support groups. I've learned that in the grand scheme of TBI's, mine isn't that bad (which doesnt make it less frustrating that at 3 months I still can't do exercise without getting migraines and vertigo). Also, from all the stories I've read, after reading the lastest update on Alicia, it sounds like she's in the "years of recovery" category. I hope I'm wrong, but at the very least, I don't believe she'll be back writing for pinkbike soon. for anyone else reading this that may be dealing with or end up dealing with a TBI/Post Concussion Syndrome, dont let your doctor tell you there's no treatment except rest. Vision therapy, neuro optometrist, hyperbaric chamber, OT/PT, clean up your diet, hydrate more than you thought you could ever hydrate, get regular sleep, stay away from computers and smart phones.
