Ridden and Rated: 7 Long-Travel 29ers
What kinda surprises me is that most of the bikes people wish were included here HAVE been reviewed by Pinkbike. Especially given that these are kinda summary comparisons, why would it have been so hard to include ALL long-travel bikes reviewed by Pinkbike in the past few years? Heck, even your "First Ride" articles have more info than the summaries here - seems like those articles would even be enough to include a bike in this comparison. You guys already have the material, just summarize. Curious as to why these were the only bikes included.

Hanging Up Your Helmet This Winter? – Pinkbike Poll
Helllll no!!! After riding in last year's crazy rains in CA the whole time, all I needed to replace was my BB and my lower headset bearing. Super cheap. Keep riding!

Fouriers Quick True Tool - Review
Trueness is overrated. Uniform spoke tension is under-rated. Using a tool like this to get a whacked rim back into true will almost always mean some overtensioned spokes and some undertensioned spokes, which quickly spell the demise of a wheel. Better to forget about it being perfectly true (which is what a tool like this is used for) and get your spoke tension right and let your wheel wobble a little bit.

POC Joint VPD System Knee Pads - Review
Alpinestars Paragon knee have been on my knees for the past 1.5 years or so, still going strong, still super comfy, and they've protected my knees from pretty dire consequences more than once. And they're like 1/3 of the price of these.

Reece Wallace Explores the Yukon
Wow. Didn't know there was much of a riding community up there but Yukon tell someone put a lot of effort into those trails. I'd love to go - not sure if my wife will let me but Alaska.

TranzX Dropper Seatpost - Review
I'd give it two thumbs up just for the fact that you have to say "Trans Sex" when your buddy asks you what brand your new dropper is.

Green Oil: An Environmentally Friendly Chain Lube? - Review
@drunknride: I don't see many drops of oil on the trail from lube, but air pollution kills 5,000,000+ people per year worldwide, auto accidents kill 33,000 Americans every year, and locally almost every single wildfire in my area (and most others) have been started by cars. Point is, driving a car is pretty much the most environmentally destructive thing any of us do and by far, so it's just really ironic for someone to put eco-friendly lube on their chain and then put the ol' MTB on the back of a car. The way most people carry out their mountain bike habits is *extremely* destructive to the environment and chain lube isn't even close to the biggest reason for that. I don't like trash any more than other people, but fact is that most trash is limited to the trail corridor which is a very small % of nature, and mostly just matters to the people using the trail rather than the local environment as a whole. Air pollution and fires is a much bigger deal as far as the whole of nature is concerned.
