Pinkbike Poll: Do You Use Tire Inserts?
@ianwish: I suppose I could see a bit of a benefit it it allowed you to run lower pressure without the squirm but I wouldn't want to be carrying that extra weight around all the time and I wouldn't want to be putting the insert in the tire then taking it out all the time when conditions warrant the need for extra grip. I suppose I stand a bit corrected on my initial comment, though I do question how much something like the Huck Norris really reduces the squirm.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Use Tire Inserts?
For me personally the tire inserts just don't make sense. I run around 26 psi on a wide rim in the rear and I don't huck hard enough to impact my carbon hoops. Sure I could run less pressure in the rear if I had an insert but when I run that low of psi I don't like the squirmy feel when cornering. I can see the use in them for people that are really bad at cornering and for people that huck it crazy hard. Think they are kind of pointless for your average blokef. I imagine if I started to have issues with flats I would rather try a thicker casing first.

First Look: Shimano's New XTR is More Than Just 12-Speed
@preston67: oh dang, well to each their own. I am on 27.5 with 30-42 and I would like a bit lower gears but with 26-50 I think I'd just prefer to push the bike at that point.

I usually cringe at the people that make fun of others for their choice of gear ratios but you really want a 28t front ring with a 51t cog?

What Are Your MTB Pet Peeves? - Opinion
@ybsurf: That is what gets me. The areas I ride all have logging roads to the top of the trails, there is no reason to be climbing them.

What Are Your MTB Pet Peeves? - Opinion
@igorgoga: I don't run people over, I yield on the way up and the way down. Cleaning a climb is overrated though, you can finish the hill just walking up it. If you yield to someone on the way down you miss the side jumps or you have to climb back up to get more speed.

I find it more annoying when climbers don't yield to those that are descending. I usually end up yielding to everyone. Why would I want to wreck someones flow on the downhill?

2019 Specialized Stumpjumper - First Ride
Seems like Specialized has finally recovered from the days they decided that 27.5 was a fad, they missed the boat on that and have been playing catch up ever since. Getting rid of the proprietary shock mount and going to a threaded BB were smart moves too.
