The Pinkbike Podcast: Rob Roskopp on Skateboarding, the Syndicate, & Leaving Santa Cruz
Hydrogen for transportation is a dead end. The only way to make it economically is by reformulating natural gas so it is terrible for the environment. It has to be compressed to extremely high pressures for storage. Hydrogen fuel is much, much less efficient than battery electric. Just because you know a lot about one thing (bikes) does not mean you know anything about other things. As Musk is proving, just because you are successful at electric cars and rockets doesn't mean you can't make a colossal mistake like buying Twitter.

Are Elite Athletes At Higher Risk Of Heart Problems & Premature Death?
I'm not sure why the comments section is so hot with this article. The article title starts with "Are Elite Athletes At Higher Risk..." My guess is that there are somewhere between 0 and none "Elite" athletes active in the Pinkbike comment sections! The Elite athletes are putting in base miles in Spain or Arizona. We are exercising our typing skills.

Field Test: 5 Trail Bikes Face the Efficiency Test
@hamncheez: This is the perfect task for a college senior project. Pinkbike can donate the bikes for a week and the college students can figure out the perfect test and do 100's of run!

Specialized Cuts Global Ambassador Program
@Snowytrail: I'm not sure if you have ever been "let go" from an employer. I have. At least when you work for someplace larger than a small business, you don't get notice. You are told by a manager and an HR rep that your time with the company has ended. Your computer and door access is terminated, and you are escorted from the building. Typically you get to come back a few days later to pick up your personal items. Why is it done this way? Because ex-employees can be unhappy and sometimes do bad things if they are given the opportunity or make a scene back at their cube. It is not an enjoyable process even if you have a good idea that cutbacks are coming.

Field Test: Trek Fuel EX - Evolution Underlined
The weight seems a bit high for the component spec., travel, and price. I would be hoping for something closer to a pound lighter.

This is a used 2020 Orbea OIZ M10 TR frame and Fox Step Cast 34 Factory fork. Both the shock and fork are remote lock-out. This is a great XC setup. I had the complete bike down to 23.5 pounds with a dropper post and Shimano M520 pedals which is very low for an XL frame. The 120mm of travel is perfect for XC courses. There are plenty of scratches, scuffs, and dings as I tried to show in the pictures. No structural damage. There is protective film applied to the chainstays and a few other places. The fork was just redone with new seals and fluid. The headset bearings are original so probably need to be replaced soon. Press fit bottom bracket but I never had any issues with creaking or noise. The price includes Paypal fees and shipping to the lower 48 US states.

Trail Tool Review: Silky Gomboy vs Corona RazorTooth Folding Handsaw
At the moment the 10" Corona saw (handle and blade) is $20.99 on Amazon. The replacement blade costs $23.98. It is cheaper to buy the complete saw + blade then throw it every time the blade gets dull.

6 Environmental Initiatives in the Bike Industry: Seaweed Gel Pods, Schwalbe Bike Soap & More
Don't let perfect stop you from getting better. A electric car is better than a gas or diesel powered car even in places with a lot of coal power plants. An Ebike is better than any car. A bicycle is better than cars or ebikes. Walking is better than biking.
