Pinkbike Poll: What If....?
What if press-fit bottom brackets never creaked? I wouldn't know, because I don't use them. They are poor solution to a problem that didn't really exist. What if gearbox drivetrains were almost the same weight as derailleur drivetrains? IF they were guaranteed durable as a regular rear mech set up sure. Lightweight tires? Really, you have to ask this? less rotational weight... Pedals? There is NO way freestyle competitors would develop clipped pedals. That's just silly. C'mon. Automatic rear mech? Preselecting won't cover all situations, so what happens those times you cannot plan for? No thanks... Carbon rims? Mmmm.. make it TWO seasons, and maybe. I'd rather be able to buy OUTLAWS again at a reasonable price... have no idea what made their prices go up... Carbon Frame? They'll never be the same price. Too much marketing hype over the years on carbon for them to redact any of it. Nice thought though. Suspension? My suspension already performs at 95% Where are you coming up with this stuff??? No seats? Shirley, you can't be serious.... Cockpit components? Again? really? Limiting my choice as a consumer is only going to create unappy, reluctant customers. The auto industry already does this... ------------------------------ Overall, less marketing mumbo jumbo, and more desire to actually create a useful, durable product at a decent price. MOST major companies fail at this, miserably.

Pinkbike Poll: What If....?
What if: Bmx'er's got in to the sport sooner? Mountain bikes started out with geometry suited to the riding, rathe than the road? Prices went down? the industry actually adhered to standards, instead of adopting the wordpress model eternal upgrading? The industry admitted to a huge marketing bias, fired most of the marketing departments and quite preying on the naive?

The Mountain Bike Technology Wishlist - Opinion
that's all nice and everything... Good flat pedals, on the market now, are about as much as one could ask for. Honestly, old school Shimano DX pretty had it nailed. It's been re-invention for the most part, or copying, ever since. Most droppers out there work well enough. How about make them RELIABLE? Yes, some are, but it's not consistent yet. Even rear mechs are pretty much nailed down. Tires, not too bad - consistent width would be cool. What I'm getting at is technology is not where energy needs to be spent. Rather, put that energy/focus in to actual standards that mean something. Then maybe prices could come down again. $800 for a wheelset? you have got to be kidding. Also, drop the marketing BS. Prime example was/is Giant's chart a couple years about wheel size, then only to rescind all their "research" and contradict it years later. Wtf was that all about? All the money put in to marketing could be nixed and passed on to savings for the end-users... But, I will say, we are luck y to live in such interesting times, we do indeed have quite a lot to appreciate, and I do, indeed.

Why Pinkbike is Covering eMTBs This Week
@mikromakro: "E-Mtb routes" ? Now, that is cool, and something I'd consider participating in.

Why Pinkbike is Covering eMTBs This Week
"Demand for eMTBs has grown dramatically—nearly every major brand has an eMTB offering or is frantically working on one. " That isn't demand. That's saturating the market to make it look like there is demand. ebikes are the new "standard", since they've done about every tweak to a traditional bike they can (and still call it "progress"). Demand, lol...

Why Pinkbike is Covering eMTBs This Week
"I’m interested in some eMTB coverage, but show me only the most interesting stuff" I dont' believe there are that many votes for this option. Say what you like, I just don't believe it. Also disagree with pinkbike's stance, and can't believe they would adopt it. I won't quite mountain biking, but I will frequent this site less and less, the more and more e-bike content shows up. Great suggestion on separate site. If E-bikes are so strong, there should be no problem building a community around it, rather than tainting this one.
