2017 Pinkbike Awards: Athlete of the Year Nominees
@BeerGuzlinFool: No I understand that, but then they shouldn't have nominated him at all if that was the case and they don't want to focus on XC. And if that is the case, then hand out a "Gravity Athlete of the Year" not Mtb Athlete of the year. Until then, give it to the most deserving mtb athlete which is clearly Nino.

2017 Pinkbike Awards: Athlete of the Year Nominees
While people here tend to focus on the gravity stuff, I don't think anyone can discount the fact that Nino went pure perfection with a world championship this year. Which has never been done before with XC. If they gave it to Rachel last year, over Nino, for doing the same thing (against MUCH smaller fields and competition), then there should be absolutely no reason he shouldn't get it. If he doesn't its because he wears spandex instead of knee pads and a full face, not because he isn't deserving. My vote is with Nino.

2017 Pinkbike Awards: Highlight of the Year Nominees
Maybe it says something about the outcome and scores of Rampage when the 2nd place run is nominated for highlight of the year and the winning run wasn't....

Dude, that looks just like my private heli-access riding that I do for my mid-week rip!

Bikepacking in Finland Looks Amazing in ‘Not Far From Home II’ - Video
@thrice: Thanks for the reply. Does filming like he did not take away from the "adventure" aspect of it? I mean he is filming a bike packing trip which sort of changes the mentality of a bike packing trip when you have to do multiple shots are with multiple people etc when its just meant to be an adventure ride?

How much time goes into the actual making of the film vs just riding/exploring on a trip like this? Looks like he had a cameraman with him so I'd be curious to know how much time is spent getting shots for example. Looks absolutely incredible though.

Scott Enduro Cup Presented by Vittoria - 2018 Race Schedule
@nmcmillan: SO you can get an LT in last years model, but with the completely new design they came out with for 2018 there is no LT. I would have bought it had they had one.

Scott Enduro Cup Presented by Vittoria - 2018 Race Schedule
@nmcmillan: They aren't making an LT version anymore. I asked the same thing and the reps said they aren't bringing one out. They might have been spouting bullshit, but as of now the biggest bike they have is the Genius 29 which is 150/150 other than their DH bike the Gambler. So unfortunatley you are out of luck for now.

Eminent Cycles Launches the Haste - First Look
I feel like they should have done that dropper routing internal. I know some people like ease of access for external routing, but it would look co much cleaner with out that cable being there, for me it takes a bit away from an otherwise very clean looking bike.

Scott Enduro Cup Presented by Vittoria - 2018 Race Schedule
@corvus1: And only a 150 fork up front and weighs 26 pounds as their top bike. Only the to end tuned version has a 36 stock on it and its $7200, the rest have 34's which are just trail forks not enduro forks. So, tell me again how they cater to an enduro crowd? The genius is a really nice bike, but it is their way of trying to appease everyone with it being a "big trail bike" that you can race enduro on. They don't specifically make an enduro bike, they make one, the tuned version that they are considering an enduro bike. I talked with the Scott reps about it and thats pretty much what they told me.
