Review: My First Year with the 5-Bike 1Up Recon Rack
@JoeDick: On a Sienna, the 5 place Recon would make the steering awfully light with anything more than 3 mountain bikes on it. It's not just the weight - it's the leverage, because of how far back the weight is from the rear axle. Air bags made that better; not great, but better.

Trail Bike Medals, Canadians On Top & More Things We Learned From the Pietra Ligure Enduro World Cup 2023
Which would be a great way to relabel/sell backstock of what used to be thought of as enduro race bikes (150-160mm travel with a Lyrik or 36) in the dark ages of, oh, about two or three years ago...

Throwback Thursday: 10 Classic Photos of the Day From 2003
@brianpark: POD and VOD were special way back then, because there wasn't this insane flood of MTB content. I have a hard time seeing how it'll ever be the same thing - even just on the PB home page, every day there's stuff that'll blow your mind. Add in all the social media most folks consume, where there's no shortage of people who've made it their job to be present and visible pushing out images and videos everyday.

Video: Why Beginner and Advanced Riders Love Blue Trails (and Intermediate Riders Don't)
And somehow, you're in charge of determining what flow is, what riders are supposed to do, and exactly why the world is going to hell?

Yep, BC Blue is indeed a thing. Half Nelson, though, is (or was the last time I was up that way pre-Covid) just a really fun, flowy joy ride. Nope, it's not a techy character builder. Nope, it's not a huge puzzle to figure out line choice and all that. Yes, it's easy to ride with some flow, and then offers better riders the option of dialing it up by going faster/bigger/more creative. It's a bit like ice cream - nope, you wouldn't want to have it all the time, or exlusively. But frankly, if someone can't have fun on that, that may indicate they're just a little bit dead inside.

Pinkbike Predictions: Who Could Win the XC World Cup Season Opener?
@danielfloyd: Seems to be an XC thing - and seems to square with what roadies do.

Tech Briefing: May 2023
@mikekazimer: It's still a misnomer - we're not being brief on tech here, we're being shown previous articles/posts/videos that range from press releases announcing products to PB generated content discussing products.

First Look: Atherton AM.170
The smaller sizes have 430mm chainstays - which are really short for a bike with that much travel, as in, it takes a fair bit of doing to achieve that short a chainstay while accommodating that amount of travel. So the shorter than their competitors chainstays looks like a very deliberate choice.

First Look: Atherton AM.170
@Mtmw: They're both bikes aimed at pretty much the same use profile. You're right that they're very different animals - but comparing them head to head to find out what tripling your budget would get you would make for some interesting reading.

Head to Head Review: 2023 RockShox Zeb vs Fox 38
How long until there's a Marzocchi version of the 38? The Z1 is essentially a slightly less expensive entry-level 36 - and it's doing very well for a lot of folks. For people who want the stouter chassis, a Z0 (?) might be the ticket. Set/forget/shred...
