The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 31 - Wet Weather Riding Tips & Tricks
For cheap cold weather shoes, take your oldest pair of still rideable shoes and some Shoe Goo over *all* of the vents. Bodda bing, bodda boom! You now have yourself a pair of highly water resistant shoes. The tip to applying Shoe Goo is to put on a dab and then smooth it out with a piece of ice. The ice won't stick to the Goo, and you'll be able to spread it smoothly and evenly.

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 28 - All About Women's Bikes
@rippersub: Ha! True. I multiplied 2.3 by 1.23 to get to 2.8 and slapped that into my comment too quickly. Worked for the arithmetic, but not for the words.

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 28 - All About Women's Bikes
@brianpark: You mentioned in the podcast that you are a believer in scaling. Wouldn't tires be one of the scale-able areas? I'm weighing in at roughly 215 lbs. That puts me at 1.23 percent heavier than a 175 lbs rider. So if we scale our tires, a 175 lbs rider on 2.3 tires equals me on 2.8 tires. Speaking of weight - on the question of worst ideas/inventions/concepts in mountain biking, I'd put forward that weight weenie-ism is the meta villain that held back the industry for literal decades. Just look how much we have been able to progress as a sport with wider rims, beefier tires, stiff forks, dropper posts, etc.

First Look: 2021 Vitus Escarpe & Sommet
@stiingya: firsthand experience right here. I've got a crushed shift cable housing underneath the bottom bracket of my Devinci Marshall. I took the hit on a narrow shark fin rock that slipped right past my chainring on the edge of a small drop. Luckily she still shifts just fine now that I've squeezed the housing back to a rough round with pliers. On one hand, it sucks to see the crushed housing during the roughly two times per year that I look down yonder, and I know I'll have to stop being lazy and replace it when I go to sell the bike. On the other hand, I've always wondered if that housing saved me from a cracked carbon bottom bracket shell. I think of it as an extra bit of frame protection.

Trek Superfly SS w/ Reba, Deore, & XT wheelset

$1150 USD
Well hey there, internet friend! I've got for you today a Trek Superfly SS cross-country hardtail that can be run geared or single-speed. Here are the details: Trek SuperFly SS XL frame Rockshox Reba RL 120mm fork XT wheelset Shimano Deore brakes Shimano Deore rear derailleur Shimano Zee shifter Deore brakes (brand new) Deore crankset SunRun cassette 11-36 (brand new) Race Face narrow-wide 32t chainring Origin8 X-Bow Flat Handlebar, 31.8 x 760 Answer atac 60mm stem Devinci lock-in grips (brand new) Salsa seatpost Bontrager saddle Bontrager XR4 29x2.4 front tire Maxxis Ardent 29x2.25 rear tire ADDITONAL INFO: -The frame was designed and sold as a rigid singlespeed. I've since added gears and a 120mm fork. The original fork was corrected for a 100mm fork, so expect the head angle to be roughly one degree slacker and the bottom bracket to be a bit higher than the geo charts indicate. -The frame has rub in some areas, most prominently on the non-driveside seatstay. -The Reba has a lockout feature. I prefer my forks run fully open at all times, so I removed the lever. You'll notice the cable and lock-nut on the fork. This is because Rockshox lockout capable forks are set to lockout by default, so you have to have tension on the dial to keep the fork active. You can easily buy a lockout level online and install it of you prefer the option. -The frame has a dropout but no cable braze-ons for the derailleur cable. You'll notice I run the cable along the chainstay using cable ties. I will include a chainstay protector thag (a) makes the setup look tidier, (b) protects the chainstay, and (c) helps keep down the noise. I left off the chainstay protector so you could accurately see the entire chainstay

Opinion: Helping, Being Helped & Debt - World Mental Health Day 2020
Thanks for sharing this, @mattwragg. I imagine that a person feels incredibly vulnerable opening up to a group of internet strangers about anything personal, much less the topic of mental health. I certainly wouldn't have the courage to do it. I think it's important to discuss and normalize mental health so that (hopefully) fewer people feel like they're going through these things alone. For those Pink Bikers who offered advice on how Matt should handle his own situation and relationships, things none of us other than Matt truly understand? I'm frankly disappointed in you. I'm not angry. I'm just very, very disappointed.

Bike, Surfer, Powder, & Snowboarder Magazines Shut Down
@mikekazimer: I say keep up the good work. Your podcast has become an unexpected weekly source of comfort during this year of the 'rona. The banter is rock solid. It's like listening to some old buddies just shooting the shit when social distancing means I struggle to do that myself.

@Svinyard: I cannot overstate how cool I think this is. For a guy who is basically an internet bike mechanic celebrity to just give out his number and pass along some of his copious and hard-earned wrenching knowledge for free? F'ing amazing stuff! @brianpark: I say hire him for the meditative bike build videos alone. And let him throw in a Palmer's Peeves every now and then. Just keep him off the sauce while filming...

Review: Diaz Suspension Designs' RUNT Fork Cartridge
@vinay: I decided to see how cheap I could build a min-maxed long-travel mullet bike this summer during covid. I didn't want to invest much without being able to demo and that wasn't on the menu this year. Ended up snagging a brand new '20 160mm Yari 29er for $425 using a Labor Day coupon. That beat used prices by at least a $100 on PB buy/sell. I love the bike, but my hands do take a beating on rides over two hours. Thanks for this eye-opening article, PB - I'll likely be investing in a RUNT at some point in the future.
