How Much Do Professional Mountain Bikers Get Paid? - Pinkbike's State of the Sport Survey
@hamncheez: maybe in high skilled or educated jobs. But when it comes to service industry the wage gap is huge in both management and hourly workers.

Bike Check: Matt Lakin's Fully Rigid Stooge Cycles Dirtbomb Enduro Race Bike
@atestisthis: if you are riding a rigid on anything rough you typically need to stand and use your body as suspension to maintain traction or get up or over features. You also need to maintain a slightly higher speed to climb and may need to hop up what others just roll over. On the flip side you are going slower downhill and in flats as the bike shakes like crazy. So the tiny bit of gained efficiency of ss outweighs a gear range that is considerably less effective than on a bike with front or especially full suspension. I’ve ridden my rigid without a seat before after breaking a post for weeks and i only real noticed it missing when trying to rest on less technical parts of the downhills.

Most rigid guys ride single speed usually 32/18. Stand and smash works better than sit and spin on the low tech bikes in my opinion.

Judges' Results: X Games Real MTB
Congrats to Zink on the bronze. He went every bit as huge as Brage just in a very different environment. Pushed his riding and deserved the medal. Doing Lunn proud which is the video we all missed.

@JamesR2026: nothing about brages riding is mm perfect. His riding style is loose and that’s part of what makes him so much fun to watch. Semenuk feels so calculated while Brage seems like he’s able to show up and send it and it usually works and sometimes he breaks a leg.

Video: Steven Walton Hunts for Extra UCI Points at the 2021 Costa Rican Open
Because the uci and red Bull care more about the World Cup product as being elite and inaccessible. They see themselves as the formula one of our sport and they don’t care about turnout to national races or if talented guys never get a shot at the show. They don’t care if you need to be either the luckiest kid ever or come from money in order to race at their races. It’s a real shame when a group like the uci puts their own image over the health of the sports they are supposed to represent. Really I wish brands wouldn’t care about uci in mtb. I don’t think we’d still be doing mtb thru the uci if so many companies didn’t rely on them for road racing too. Which an ultra elite model is better suited since it is much less of a fringe sport.

Canfield Bikes Prototype Stolen in Salt Lake City
@Snfoilhat: true fences got a market for just about everything. Usually long term drug dealers know a fence or two or just keep it. cause they’ll basically take stolen goods for drugs at obscenely low prices. (Mtb for a $20 bag wouldn’t be out of question) Pro bike thief’s go straight to fences or have their own resellers and homeless/petty guys usually go thru the drug dealer. I imagine most get resold domestically online by resellers. I’m sure there is at least one Pinkbike account selling all stolen bikes. But I imagine some also get shipped overseas by the container load by organized crime. I imagine most people buying a stolen bike have no idea it’s stolen and the few that suspect it would only look into it if say someone walked up to them and said hey I think ur riding my stolen bike. I will say though with the prices specialized is asking for those e bikes that shit better come with onstar.

They sell a 50 hr service kit. I get some guys can do it all but I think for most their way of doing things is for the best. My buddy just became an ext dealer so it doesn’t matter for me anyways.
