Race & Accessibility in the Mountain Bike Community
Many urban areas have quality trails. They just happen to rarely reach poor neighborhoods and often be located in neighborhoods that maybe you have the cops called on you for being "suspicious" when you are just out riding a bike.

@IntoTheEverflow: That's the little definition of whataboutism and isn't acceptable if you want to tackle issues like systemic racism.

Pinkbike Poll: What's Your Favorite MTB Suspension Design?
While it's been a long time since I've ridden a bike with bad suspenstion, and other designs do certain things quite a bit better, Treks ABP is still my favorite for it's consistency. Just never seem to be surprised by it whether I'm riding my best or having a bad day. Pedals well under power as well. I only own hardtails and a Santa Cruz VPP, but my next bike is probably a trek unless I can try the new CBF suspension design on revels and canfields. Seems like it could have the same qualities I like in a Trek with even more benefits.

Race & Accessibility in the Mountain Bike Community
@brianpark: You guys can do a better job. I can think of a at least one person here who occasionally posts racist messages, and frequently troll the message boards. I once messaged a mod about a racist post and as far as I could tell nothing happened. Roadstain is the username. I don't have an issue calling him out publically cause I know more than a few members have noticed his racism. There are others too, and I've seen racist posts last in the comment sections for days before if not eternity (I don't go back and look at stuff if a thread dies out).

I think one of the best examples of getting less privelaged kids on bikes is public pumptracks. Philly pumptrack is responsible for getting loads of less privelaged kids having fun on bikes. I see the same kids riding around the streets currently as the track is closed due to covid. Many have way more talent on 500 dollar rigids than I do with 2 3k bikes. Would be great to see some major companies step up and put similar projects in more communities. With an emphasis on putting the location in poorer parts of town. Sure the investment may take decades to materialize, but at the end of the day the almighty dollar can't be the only focus and if you truly care about disadvantaged communities you have to put your money where your mouth is.

Únic Unveils Custom Kit Range for Younger Riders
@Albe23: Till they outgrow it in 6 months to a year. But really what are they doing that they are destroying their clothes. Tiny holes aside I've worn nothing but dirt cheap athletic shorts my whole life and they last 2-3 years minimum and I got some that are 10+ years old.

Sweet. I'll be looking at these as an option for my next bike cause I'm tired of constantly truing aluminum wheelsets.
