Event Recap: Northstar Freeride Festival
This event was great, had a fun time. The vendors were all lead by fun and cool people, a lot of discounts to be had as well. 25% of Kali helmets! The biggest problem I had is there was no vendor map. I didn't know who was there, or where they were. Myself and others couldn't figure it out until the day of the event, which was a bummer. We reached out to Northstar on 3 occasions for information regarding the event and didn't receive much information back. No one knew for sure when signing up for the event if we needed to purchase a ticket for the demo bikes or not, and we were originally lead to believe we needed to buy tickets. The day before the event we found out that we didn't need to purchase tickets, and Northstar did give us a full refund. Thanks to Pivot for bringing out a TON of bikes, and Northstar for making sure there were enough trails open all weekend for the event and not shutting down any of the fun trails for races and whatnot.

Pinkbike Poll: Mountain Biking - What Should it Cost?
Honestly, its one of the cheaper hobbies out there. Tons of kids are into cars. Cars have got to be one of the most expensive hobbies with no ceiling. When I played around with muscle cars, 5-8k was standard for a forged rotating assembly, and then add the cost of heads, fluids, maintence, transmission, suspension, tires, brakes.... all huge costs. I've reverted back to Mt Biking because the cost to have a completely built up rig is a fraction of what car hobbyists pay. Not only that, but Mt Biking is much more fun, then struggling with installing new valve springs on your car, timing belts, water pumps... fuck that shit. I got car with a warranty now, costs a little less then all my bikes combined.
