dh is my passion, but have been focusing more on all-mtn "Enduro" style riding these last few years. I used to race with sponsorship. But only do occasional races for fun now. I ride Moto almost as much as bikes. Currently have a Husaberg FE 570 S.

This. How is this not one of the options?

Opinion: Why Have Bike Makers Ignored this Grassroots Fix?
I wrapped my current frame before building it. Being a bare and perfectly clean frame made it pretty easy. However I did this to help protect against potential damage to the carbon. Where I live the terrain is consistently rocky so theres a constant barrage of flinging rocks and pebbles. The idea being that chipped paint and exposed carbon layers will lead to a problem earlier. I didnt do it for looks.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Listen to Music While Riding?
For years I had to have music when riding. At some point I didn't have headphones that worked or fit in my helmet and had to ride without for a little while. Its been a few years now since riding with music. I've tried but I no longer like it.

Pinkbike Poll: How Often Do You Wash Your Bike?
I wash on an "as needed" basis, or before major maintenance. Dont worry much about dust, but do keep dirt from building up. So depending on weather and season, the frequency can vary a lot. Chain does gets a regular wipe down and lube though.

@rockchomper: heads up. Even in an incognito tab, your boss can still see what your doing if they wanted to look.

Destination Showcase: Whistler, BC - The Perfect 4 Day Itinerary
My last five Whistler trips have gone as follows. day 1, Squamish trails. Day 2-5, ride park. Day 6, drag aching body out of bed and ride more park, even though your body's screaming for mercy. Day 7-10, ride more park and struggle with grip strength and pain the whole time. Day 11, 16 hour driving mission back to home. Day 12, call in sick to work because you can hardly move.
