In the Valley of the Sun with Thomas Vanderham and Sam Schultz
Kinda glitchy a bit eh? Does the vid skip backwards every 20secs or so for anyone else? Me thinks the dude who uploaded it might have been downloading questionable videos at the same time

Does Manitou's Mastodon Pro Make Fatbikes More Fun? - Review
@freestylAM: stock 26X80mm alloy rims with studded 4.8" 45Nrth Dillinger 5 for winter and now rolling on 27.5X65mm carbon rims with 3.8" Maxxis Minions FBF/FBR in summer. Dream setup imo.

Does Manitou's Mastodon Pro Make Fatbikes More Fun? - Review
The Foes Mutz is a fs fatbike with 150mm front and rear. Won 2 enduro events in my area on it. The thing is in a class of its own. It has grip where other riders hoofed it and picks up speed like a bullet on the descents due to the big wheel momentum. Sold a hardtail fatbike and an enduro to buy it. No regrets. And I can ride 12months a year swapping the wheelsets.

Ask Pinkbike: Carbon or Aluminum, Norco Sight or Optic?
Foes aluminum frames are on another level. Gotta play fair! ????

Ask Pinkbike: Carbon or Aluminum, Norco Sight or Optic?
I've owned 2 carbon bikes, a GT Force Expert and a Santa Cruz Bronson. Both were amazing bikes, especially the Bronson. But the one thing that annoyed me the most with both was the constant creaking under high tork such as pedalling uphill. Even after many visits at the lbs and precise torque adjustments of every bolt on the bikes, regreasing and checking/cleaning of the bottom brackets and seatposts or whatever else it could be, the creaks would always come back. I actually felt ashamed sometimes, like if I was riding a kid's plastic Fisher-Price bike. The 3 bike shops I had working on the bikes all concluded to weaknesses or microstress fractures that developed over time in some areas of the frames, probably internal also, as thorough external inspections did not reveal any weaknesses. So like some have said, I guess the layering process for carbon is probably inconsistent atm. Hopefully it will improve over time. For now I'm back on an aluminum frame. The only noise I now hear is the sweet melody of tires rolling on dirt. No more f***ing creaks!

Manitou's New Fat Bike Fork - Taipei Cycle Show
I think they might have been referring to the Chinese "forks of many names" that were around before Wren. Somehow I don't believe Pinkbike is in the loop when it comes to Wren. Which is a shame since their new forks easily outperforms SRAM's Bluto.

What's the Perfect Tire Width For All-Around Riding? - Pinkbike Poll
Actually, on the DH a bigger tire is gonna have more momentum (higher mass) and stability (more contact patch): simple physics. It's on the horizontal that larger tires lose out due to rolling resistance. Even on the climbs it comes ahead in the long run. Its extra traction will compensate for the extra weight. Maybe it's my skills but I always come up ahead of my buddies on every run on my 27.5+ 3" while they still ride their 2.35. Who knows maybe the future is FS fatties!
