Pinkbike Poll: Hip Pack, Vest, or Backpack?
But what about when you need to carry your bike on your back to get to the good riding? A full hydration pack makes it much more comfortable to have a bike on your shoulders. It has to have good compression adjustment though so it can be full regardless of how much stuff is in it

What Are The Big Changes Year Over Year in the Pinkbike State of the Sport Survey Results?
@chrismac70: Fair enough, but I think it is no more of a guess than saying that these data show that riders are now being paid more. The total amount of money reported in the survey is a lot less, even if it is slightly more per rider who responded.

What Are The Big Changes Year Over Year in the Pinkbike State of the Sport Survey Results?
Given that the number of riders surveyed is only just over half the number from 2021, you could interpret the pay changes as riders being paid less. Most of the riders not getting paid have are probably too busy working to have time for a survey.

Why Did Bernard Kerr's Prototype Frame Break at Crankworx Rotorua?
@eae903: Yes to the locking lugs. I've played around with bonded aluminium and carbon quite a bit and I really think that a mechanical connection is the only safe way to do it. If you shape the joint with some large scale texture (like > 3mm) and lay up the carbon directly onto it then you can the fibres shaped to really hold the aluminium. This way even if the bonding fails you'll just get a very creaky frame that won't break right away. With a lugged joint and premade carbon tube I think the only way to achieve the same failsafe would be to pin the joint as well as bond it. Alternatively, use premade carbon tubes with carbon lugs à la Calfee.

Results: New Zealand DH National Championships 2024
@threesixtykickflip: if anything the track got faster for elites as it dried. The difference is that this was the peak event for the juniors, but just a fun weekend for the top international riders

Alicia Leggett's 2024 Predictions
Would a bike company be in bigger trouble now if they were overstocked like everyone else, of if they had the perfect stock level but still had to massively discount because everyone else was? I don't know the answer to that question but I certainly wouldn't be surprised if overstocking turns out to be the best strategy

Matt Beer's 2024 Predictions
@cougar797: I've had upside-down forks forks too (MRP and DVO). Great at speed but I did find the flex a problem at low speeds or loaded up un berms. My theory vs moto is that optimal fore aft stiffness depends on the total weight of the system, which is a lot more for moto that mtb. Optimal torsional stiffness depends on the strength of the rider to hold the bars straight, which is the same for both disciplines. USD forks get the ratio for fore-aft to torsional stiffness right for a heavy moto, right side up forks get the ratio right for a light MTB

Reader Story: Making a Custom Bike By Recycling Old Frames
@hatton: I agree. I'm confident with my frame, but no way I'd expect you to be confident it nor would I be confident with one you made.
