We've Got Questions: Digging Deep at Enve
How does a CEO get to be a CEO with such garbage answers like "every day our engineers wake up and ask themselves how they can make the best wheel possible"? What company wouldn't say that? Reads like bullshit marketing gibberish. At least the lower-down guys are trying their hat at giving some real answers.

2018 Canyon Torque - First Ride
Was hoping to see one minute of SENDING for a promo video for a bike like this. Instead mostly saw monochrome split-screen of the riderless bike and its parts flying through the air. Now I'm sad.

Spengle's One-Piece Carbon Enduro Wheels - First Look
This is exactly my thought. A stick being kicked up by your wheel, or a trailside branch, bounces off 32 spokes rotating quickly. But 3 spokes? Not sure I'd want to ride around on these.

2017 Pinkbike Awards - Value Product of the Year Nominees
I would like to nominate MOAR AIR as value product of the year 2017. It's $0 and you add it to your tires and it instantly minimizes rim impacts and pinch flats. 10/10 would buy again.

Pinkbike Poll - How Much Did You Spend on Your Bike?
Hopefully the big, meaty section of the bell curve being in the $2,000-$4,000 range will persuade bike companies to send you builds that cost that much, and will persuade Pinkbike to purposefully review more bikes in that range. Your $10,000 bike reviews are nice to look at, but aren't the most useful information you OR the bike companies could be providing to most readers. Review the price segment that gets purchased most often! Repeat after me: "Thanks Santa Cruz / Trek / Specialized / Yeti / etc. for offering to send us a bike to review! Would you mind sending one of your builds in the $2000-$4000 MSRP range? That's where most of our readers are purchasing. Thanks again."

Ask Pinkbike: Clutch Trouble, DH Pants, Converting a DH Bike, and Sub-Par Shops
The popping sound is probably a worn chainring. The ring's teeth get hooked over time, and as your chain comes off the bottom of the ring it kinds hooks the chain and the chain pops off, hence the popping sound. It really only does it under power so it's often nearly impossible to identify, but that's probably what's going on, and yes, you need a new mechanic. Actually the popping may be the chain slipping into the "hook" on the top side of the chainring, that would make more sense given that it's worst when under power. Either way, same concept. Worn chainring.

Your Bike Is Fine Already. Just Ride It. - Opinion
...and on the other side, my friend on a 2007 Motobecane hardtail just rode my 2017 Hightower and it blew his mind (first time on anything but his hardtail). He didn't know mountain biking could be so fun. Progress has its place. He's saving his money now.
