Pinkbike Poll: How Often Do You Replace Your Tires?
@smithfeeble: only in front. DD in back. EXO's tear real fast in the rear for me.

Pinkbike Poll: How Often Do You Replace Your Tires?
The Maxxis Minion DHF EXO 2.5 in *dual compound* is my absolute favorite tire. Around $50, and they last forever. The side knobs on 3C wear out too fast. I ride 10-12 hours per week, hard, in a rocky area, and I've never flatted it and I only need to replace it every 4-5 months. The side knobs last foreeeever and sometimes I think they're better than the soft compound, they're more rigid and seem to dig into stuff better rather than folding.

Sweet. But that barely-perceptible kink in the the top tube...why? It makes it look broken.

First Ride: Crankbrothers Carbon Synthesis Wheels
I know it's the internet's duty to assume everyone breaking carbon rims is doing it because they're idiots running low pressures, but that's not the case with the guys I know. One is former pro DH, and most of the guys I'm talking about podium these races. Carbon rims just aren't the best tool for the job when it comes to going fast on rough tracks.

First Ride: Crankbrothers Carbon Synthesis Wheels
I had multiple friends break carbon rims at California Enduro Series races. Santa Cruz Reserve rims, no less. Multiple friends at multiple races, breaking one of the burliest carbon rims made. Guys that were not breaking aluminum rims before they switched to carbon. Who is buying these?! EWS pros don't use carbon...downhill guys don't use carbon often...normal guys are destroying carbon rims at a much higher frequency (AFAIK) than alu rims. I really am getting the feeling that carbon rims are for XC guys, and light trail riding, and that's about it. Can't believe that company after company keeps coming out with the "latest and greatest" in carbon rim offerings. There must just be a huge profit margin in carbon rims. I can't think of any other reason so many companies are pumping out so many carbon rims these days.

Review: USWE Explorer 26 Backpack
If you're bikepacking, aren't you most likely using any one of the excellent on-bike bags that exist nowadays (even for full suspension bikes)? IDK...this seems like it's in a bad no-man's land. Not practical for bikepacking (since there are more comfortable and practical options), too big for long day rides (normal hydration packs suffice), and not the best for hiking because of the lack of waist straps.
