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.

Pivot's Shuttle eMTB - First Look
Fuck E-Bikes!!! Fuck them. Fuck them. Fuck them. Drink Beer. Ride a beater. Feel the coast. Surf the line. See the terrain as a playground. Set the scope on Macro. Then re-set it to micro. Pedal damnit. Simplicity is always King. Fuck E-bikes. Fuck E-Bikes! Login or Sign Up

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.

Real Talk on Bikepacking the Colorado Trail
I can't wait to do this trip. For anyone that really knows this route (bear in mind I've never ridden any of it- bEAST coaster here) would a hardtail be sufficient for most the riding or is this definitely full suspension territory?
