Video: Joey Schusler & Crew Take On Tibet Self-Supported in 'The Kora'
First off let me say that this video is AMAZING, INSPIRING, and BEAUTIFUL, like all of Joey's videos. But, with that said, the Kora route, which circumnavigates the mountain, is only around 20 km long. I love the backcountry. I love epic, BIG adventures. And I love bikepacking. But, and maybe I naive here, but why would someone choose to do this route in bikepacking? Village guesthouses in that area of the world are awesome and part of the cultural lesson on a trip like this. Also, with the amount of hike-a-biking that they seemed to do, it seems being lighter and just going in for a long day ride might have been best. And lastly, and the biggest argument for me not organizing a trip like this and instead doing it a different way; is that area of China is amazing. SO much to see. SO many amazing mountains, cirques, alpine lake, etc. Why not expand your range a little? Maybe, they did all of this and just didn't video that part of it. Maybe, i'm just a weirdo asshole for being slightly negative here. I dunno, on something like this, an exotic foreign location, I always go macro over micro.

Video: That Time Jinya Rode Trespasser On A Hardtail - Throwback Thursday
Hardtails for hard folks. Not everyone wants to float with ease over every line and instead put value on reading terrain on a micro level instead of full motoing the entire track.

Breeding the Ultimate Mutt Bike - Opinion
68 degree HA, steel frame with beefy tubing where it's needed and lighter tubing where it makes sense, simple SS drop out option, maximized to run 29 x 2.6-3.0, suspension corrected, chainstays adjustable from 420 (ja mon) to 440, 120 headtube length, modernish reach lengths, and not a stupid low bb height. Oh and 2 bottle bosses in the front triangle is mandatory. Flexing rear stay design (leaf spring style). This whole shebang can't weigh anymore than 28lbs and I should easily be able to get her down to 25lbs without spending too much. Oh, and give me a fat seatube diameter so that I can run a drop it like it's hot post when I need to.

Brilliant or Bullshit? – Pinkbike Poll
Rigid, steel, straight-drive mountain bikes with 2.5-2.35mm aggressive 29 inch tires and a shortish stem (~70mm) and widish bars (~750mm) are the best all around mountain bikes out there today. You can ride 99% of all bikeable terrain with that bike and it's generally faster than all other bikes and you'll have less to maintain. Bikers are lazy and soft and want to that magic pill for everything. Keep it simple. Get fit. Learn how to rally the fuck out of a bike. Bike more and spend less time discussing what gear is going to make the bike better. The quicker you come to the realization that cars r coffins, every "innovation" in mountain biking is a compromise, and you need to ride or die, the better off you'll be.
