Livin' Life on Credit - Video
I remember walking this with Jim before he built it (12 years ago). At some point just after that his wife bought him a Nomad. About the most bling bike around at that point. He claimed she bought it on credit. Credit Line. Jim Harvey... what a guy!

Brilliant or Bullshit? – Pinkbike Poll
Looking back, mountain bikes were pretty shitty. Almost all of the "technology" and "geometry" that slowly lets bleed into our hands as mountain bikers each year has existed so long ago in motocross. Hydraulic brakes, air shocks, low psi tires(tubeless), a raked out and slack front end. I think it is a testament to how lame we all are as consumers and how hard it must have been to come up with shit like cannondale's headshock or gold like dropper posts.

Norco's New DH Bike – Lourdes World Cup DH 2017
I had a Kona Stab Primo in 2004 that was basically a single pivot way up high like this. when you rode it chainless it was magic. Glad to see the idler. I ride a 2015 Aurum at the park, there wasn't much room for improvement in my opinion.

Specialized S-Works Enduro 29 - Review
I bought the aluminum version. Its pretty good. 3 reasons. Best spec for the price, only 6" plus 29" in aluminum again to keep the price down and third, they hired Miranda M.

Whistler Mountain Bike Park Announces New Partnerships
Heads up... The way to buy a park bike from a rental fleet is to get a bare frame in the fall before the park closes. I bought a small glory for my kid in the fall of 2015. The frame had been striped of wheels and everything else almost immediately probably to keep the fleet rolling. Frame was spotless/not a scratch, had a head set, seat clamp and crank/chain ring and guide. $400.00! Built him a full on DH bike for less than $1000. A year in the bike park is like 10 pedaling trails. I'm surprised any bike can survive a week in the park let alone 5 months. You gotta breathe some life into these things or yah, they will feel really shitty.

The Long Ride with Ryan Nyquist - Video
Face it, jumping mountain bikes has always been like the books with the really big print for old people and BMX has been like the small print. The big print books are just way longer now and more safe to read.

2017 Rocky Mountain Freeride Team - Four Generations of Freeride
I could easily see Intense with their move into MEC (Canadian REI). Brett would be a better face than Palmer for the family friendly ribbon cuttings he'd have to attend.
