Can't upvote this enough... This is sales 101. Some of the responses were downright embarrassing.

1 Question: What's the Most Important Part of Your Off-Season?
Really was. Little off topic, but sat next to an trainer for an NBA team on a flight and the "schedule" the top guys follow is pretty nuts. They had the added wrinkle of making sure your body is at its peak from 6PM to 11PM at night, but how the top veteran players adhere to schedule of sleep and what not was pretty crazy.

Steve Smith Legacy T-Shirt Available Now
I mean it's for a cause, a charity. You could just donate money to it or you can do that and get a tshirt. Seems fair to me... I don't think its completely unreasonable for Pinkbike to cover their shipping and logistics costs. It's not like pinkbike is a sophisticated online retailer with highly scaled logistics program...

March 2017 - Good Month or Bad Month?
@Ride406orDie: This is what they should do with the Sender. Have it go through Canyon CS and see how it's handled. Bikes break. How companies work with their customers is dealing with the break - warranty/crash replacement - is what is really telling...

Derailleur vs Gearbox: Nicolai Ion 16 vs Ion GPI - Review
@WasatchEnduro: I agree the review brought up some good points and it is cool having the side by side comparison. I just felt the review could have been more complete - better evaluation of the pedaling, etc. I realize my earlier comment came off as overly negative. However, the comment on weight is a poor one. Most riders I know do prefer the lighter bikes as its easier to move the bike to hit their spots on the track or get to spots that were more challenging with a heavier bike. There is a reason racers have moved to lighter bikes - they're faster. Of course, there is a limit here for where going too light my be hurtful, but I don't think racers want to be in the 40+ pound range anymore.

Derailleur vs Gearbox: Nicolai Ion 16 vs Ion GPI - Review
Interesting idea, but I had trouble with this review as well. This comment kind of ruined it for me... "I can't find any evidence that a lighter bike is faster downhill, and something that makes me think the opposite is when I'm trying to follow a heavier rider down the hill. Try following a buddy who is 15kg's heavier than you and see who rolls the fastest." So you are saying that a heavier guy is always faster?? Try telling that to Troy Brosnan - the "little guy" seems to do pretty well against guys that are much heavier than him

Gore Pro Jacket - Review
Gore-Tex Pro makes no sense for MTB. Gore makes a lot of different 3 layer membranes that would be way better for MTB. The "Pro" moniker means that the face fabric needs to be of a certain strength, thickness, etc. which is really designed to prevent tears from rock abrasions, protection in extremely windy environments (stiffer fabric) and what not that climbers, skiers, and mountaineers would encounter. Why you wouldn't use Gore-Tex C-Nit or something like, which is lighter, more pack-able, less stiff etc. and delivers you the same functionally from a membrane standpoint for MTB is beyond me.

Specialized Enduro Pro Shorts and Enduro Comp Jersey - Review
@bsavery: You take any falls with it? Always like the merino stuff, but feel that its hard for it to be durable just given the nature of the fabric.
