Stan's Arch MK3 Rim - Review
@Racer951: What's your average life of a rim? If you are one of those people who replace a rim soon as it gets a ding, then juretunic would be right. I'm not surprised if I get a new ding each ride, almost disappointed if I go a couple without, know I haven't been riding aggressively enough.

Stan's Arch MK3 Rim - Review
@Jokesterwild: Or if your like me, then your happy if you get even a year out of rims, imo they are disposable items (I normally crack a rim 6-8 months old on uk pushed up dh)

Is Narrow the New Wide? - EWS Round 2 - Video
@Racer951: I've run. A variety of bars from 740 through to 800, and that's what I've settled on as most comfortable, the burgtecs are the only 800mm I've liked, tried a few out and absoluty hated them, bur those fit me perfectly, I'm 5ft 11in btw.

Hardly if they have a mechanic, riders will give feed back and mechanics will just adjust as required. Some just don't retain numbers and will just ask for say 10mm off the bar, raise or lower stem 5mm ect without knowing the start point. To me its completely reasonable.

First Look: DT Swiss H-Series E-Bike Wheels
I'd actually consider running these wheels on my hardtail (non ebike) as I have a real bad habit of braking wheels. So the extra strength would help!

Ask Pinkbike: Carbon or Aluminum, Norco Sight or Optic?
@CaptainBLT: Think you have the best point so far, a grand dropped on lessons would be of far far greater benefit then a few grams to vast majority of riders. However I feel the need to weigh in as a shop tech, in terms of carbon frame accuracy, we reject over a 3rd of the carbon frames we have in for imperfections, and that includes some very very 'high end' brands, not just brands we supply but out of bow bikes for customers. We won't release a bike unless we believe it to be 100% of what It could be, by comparison we reject only a small amount of aluminium frames, and no steel or titanium to date. Its also amazing how many high end bikes we see from other suppliers that wouldn't live up to your standards for a new bike. And these 'mail order' brands are just making things worse.

Pinkbike Poll: Which Major Component is the Least Evolved Part of a Mountain Bike?
"frames rarely break" Hahahahahaha! Are you kidding me? They are more fragile then ever! Work in a bike shop and you'll be amazed at what fails so regularly.
