 DEAR PINKBIKE
I love you almost as much as I love my 4 beautiful bikes. I am on here about 4hrs a day AT LEAST. I love the VODs and PODs and articles you put out. However, f*ck NO!!!!!!! you are your own site, f*ck facebook (everyone is superficial and don't give 2 shits about biking), twitter is for crackheads who need to share shit every 3 minutes and does anyone even use google plus?
you don't need these "other" social networks, because you are the best one on the internet. so please don't give us this shit about fb, tweet it or add it to some circle. if i want to make circles, i'll go and true my wheels.


glad to get that off my chest, ride on brothers

 don't get me wrong.. i like facebook for how practical it is to get intouch with people.. but i absolutely HATE how its getting everywhere... adverts on tv, posters... and now pinkbike. when i saw the "connect with facebook" button, i died inside a little... i like to go on separate sites for different things not one site with everything all mashed into one,

 Hey pinkbike why haven't you made an app yet ! That'd be alot better

 @rangemaster yeah i shut my facebook down quite a while ago and i have found that my anger issues have gotten considerably better. My life is better without facebook. If ppl wanna talk i'll skype with them and other than that im only on pinkbike, all this stuff with ppl posting garbage as statuses for their 600 stranger friends to know and tons of pictures of them, only them infront of their computer or in the mirror... i hate it.
Nevertheless facebook is now a key element for all businesses and websites, including pinkbike, to have. Cant blame them. Anyways as we dont have a facebook we arent really target readers for this article.

 @mtb24pride That's true that it's key for businesses to find out what people like but pinkbike does a pretty good job with enticing reviews and product tests that do more justice to companies than a like button.
Since I've shut down my Facebook I have an easier time talking to people, have a lot more time for studing and I don't get those random status updates and check ins.

 facebook is really useful, i use it to contact the members of the university mountain biking club, organise rides etc. they don't all have pinkbike!

 @ sam264, if they dont have pink bike... then theyre not avid cyclists, so why are they in the club? :p dont take offense to wat i said.
  • 1 0
 not all of them are, but i hope to make them avid mountain bikers!

 they may be avid cyclists where the come from but moving away from home is scary, you have to discover new riding buddies, and crucially, new trails to ride. facebook/uni cycling club is ideal. when i moved to Sheffield with the peak district on my door step it took me a year to discover some sick trails and 2 years on, i still haven't discovered half of what it has to offer

 nah we have a lot of beginner riders, but yeah i know what you mean. Just trying to get people involved really, and facebook has been fairly helpful. Then there are those people that claim to be avid cyclists and 'really want to go riding and get to know the trails' but never come to the mtb socials or bother meeting anybody who actually knows the area, despite my best efforts! ah well, mint rant over.

 I love pinkbike. I absolutely hate every other social networking site ever created. I understand that it's a smart business move and probably wouldn't have said anything until I saw the "exclusive content" part. That shit hurt my feelings. How can you go and cut us out like that??? I hope joining forces with the evil empires serves your business model well.

 The exclusive content is just funny photos and such that wouldn't really deserve a news article

 There should be a pinkbike app for iphone

 I think I can get used to living like this.

 An app would be alot more useful than all the above, notifications for replies to comments, messages etc. and all the other good stuff, it'd be alot more helpful as I'm always on my iPhone, whereas with the twitter and Facebook rubbish you still really need to be on a computer to benefit from the extension of the site.

 Phone friendly videos would be nice too.

 Well if i'm on wi-fi sometimes they do play, but it's rare

 The new videos are in iPod/iPhone friendly format but you can't watch the older stuff that is in flash.
Personally I'd love an app because on my iPod I always accidentally click the banner when I'm trying to check my mail.

 that would explain it Big Grin and why i always click the wrong stuff instead of dash/mail etc.

 Pinkbike needs an app for iPhones, blackberrys and andriods! it should have a combination of facebook kijiji and twitter and all that stuff in it! i want to be able to take pictures on the hills and putload them DIRECTLY to pinkbike though my phones. i wanna be able to browes the news without using the bowsers! i want it to be much simpler! im sure im not alone with this!

 someone should start a forum post on this, get all the ideas out and find a programmer to help make it happen.

 I personally would love to be able to upload pics/vids straight up from my phone...

 A phone app isn't the type of thing that happens to be made in 2 days. It takes a lot of work, and A LOT of bug and error fixes before being released and then, there is the update that need to be worked on! Trust me i've been waiting for the android app for a while!
