2017 Pinkbike Awards - Advocates of the Year Winners
@brianpark: It is a bit odd that the 3 trail advocates on this list are corporations. In an effort to be more inclusive, perhaps there could be a separate award category for trail associations like EMBA and others that deserve a mention that aren't for-profit bike/clothing companies.

2018 Pinkbike Calendar Now Shipping
@erikkellison: Agree 100%. Although I use my email calendar for all of my appointments, meetings, etc., I love having a calendar hanging at home and at the office to reference a quick date and of course, look at the beautiful pictures to see what I'd rather be doing :)

Watch Now: Blood Road with Rebecca Rusch
I think your ambivalence meter may be misdirected by categorizing this film as an "expedition for a cause." She said, “I went there searching for my Dad and pieces of myself, but came home with the understanding that I can use my bike for a bigger purpose than just winning races.” This wasn't initially a journey to help those affected by the war, but rather one of self-discovery and healing. Once that has been established, I think that Rusch definitely took notice to the devastation and living conditions of all three nations along the Ho Chi Minh trail. This is evident at the end of the film, where it says "Rebecca is currently leading group mountain bike trips on the Ho Chi Minh trail to raise awareness and funds in the removal of UXOs left over from the Vietnam war." So I don't know how you could call her reaction "gross" when she could have just as easily completed her journey and gone on with her life. But she didn't and I, for one, applaud her for taking the initiative to raise awareness in order to improve the lives of these people she encountered.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Care About Sustainability?
@iainmac-1: I agree about recycling and re-use, but this is the primary issue with Carbon Fiber. While it can be downcycled into things like cell phone cases, it can't be recycled the way aluminum or steel frames can. And while it's good to integrate sustainability into the design process, true sustainability in any product is built into the entire life cycle. LCA (Life Cycle Assessments/Analyses) look at the environmental impact from material extraction to disposal or recycling.

Hanging Up Your Helmet This Winter? – Pinkbike Poll
"...we could see that AngryGodAlmighty was busy trying to drown Portland for all its hipster sins." I don't know this Angry God Almighty you speak of. I do, however, know of a loving and merciful God who has blessed our PNW with endless beauty and Cascade mountains for us to play on, whether on bikes or ski's. Not to mention the 57-day streak of no rain this summer. Thank you God!

Best of Rampage: POV Runs - Red Bull Rampage 2017
@whistlerbound: Plus Aggy, Doerfling and Fairclough. But the guys that showed up put on one hell of a show! I agree with Toofastnotfurious, one of the best Rempages ever. Plus, no major injuries!

What Did The Riders Think? - Just The Tip: Red Bull Rampage 2017
@brycemtb: Agree 100%. I think Rachel Strait put the nail on the head when she said you really have to be there and stand on top of these features to visualize just how massive they are. The mere fact that Sorge is able to make it look so smooth and throw huge whips and flips is a testament to his amazing skills. He looked comfortable, but still added style throughout his entire run and it was epic. Just watch his POV winning run, it's insane! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cbqvm1nvJD4
