Video: Riding Through Ashes After The Devastating Fires in California
@JohanG: Ha ha then get the government (tax payers) to bail you out after your home is burned/flooded/blown away/caught in landslide so you can rebuild your home in the same spot. Zero accountability anymore, fools have been elevated into heroes.

Well said. A bit of common sense and respect go a long way.

Remembering Stevie Smith, 1989-2016
@speedfreek: Thank you for the reply, this helps shed a great deal of light on the situation and I now know more than I did this morning. Hopefully others have learned something as well! In these times of everyone fighting everyone over everything it is refreshing to see some civil discourse and education.

Remembering Stevie Smith, 1989-2016
I can't speak to the truth of the situation but more to the appearance of it, and the Steve Smith posts do come off feeling like Pinkbike milking people's admiration of him for likes, clicks, shares, website traffic, whatever. And the reactions to any dissenting opinion seem over the top and not in line with what this rider was about. Any time a community loses a member who actually contributed something positive to the world it is a sad thing that should be mourned and maybe even inspire others to step up and make their own contribution. But I do not see that reaction to these posts, I see a regurgitation of cliches and hashtags and outright violent, hate-filled reactions to anyone who doesn't fall in line. If the goal is to honor his memory and be inspired to be positive and love life this is not the way to do it. BenPea and bombdabass, thank you keeping things civil and offering some explanation.

@cherbein03: Can confirm. Ha ha they always seem to travel in packs, and all know the owner on a first-name basis.

Dam that fork is ugly, looks like the bike has a massive underbite.

Agreed, hence why I don't like the idea of E-bikes. Having to muscle up climbs and ride risky descents seems to scare away the riff raff. Mountain bike culture is luckily still fairly healthy here in the PNW but there is definitely an influx of materialism and consumerism driven trends. This is what I think of as the new mountain bike culture. This site has become a part of it. You think about the types of articles that litter the front page, tons of "who's wearing what" and "who's riding what". As sponsored riders they are walking billboards. Don't get me wrong, I am glad they can find a way to earn a living doing what they love, but when that materialistic culture infiltrates everyday riding experiences in the forms of groups of people who are slaves to trends I take issue with it.
