Pinkbike Poll: What Year Did You Start Mountain Biking?
Ok, I need to amend my poll answer. '76 not '94 if you count hucking a shock bike 3' drop to flat and building a ramp to launch far enough to clear 5 brave neighborhood kids lying side by side. That's gotta count as free-ride or something.

2017 Photo of the Year - Round Two Voting Closed!
At first glance the roost shot looks like he's riding on a dirt bike. I always have to look at it twice to see that it is a bicycle. I love following the downhill competitions for their drama and skill stories but looking at this picture is just SO outside of what draws me to the sport. Personally I don't race bikes, I like riding steep techy stuff in cool places and enjoy photos that make me want to get out and spin tires.

Ask Pinkbike: Back to Flats, Inches of Squish for Enduro, and Pondering the Next Upgrade
@lkubica: The actual reason I ride with spd instead of flats (which I prefer and swap from time to time) is that my cleated shoes are more supportive on long rides than my flat pedal shoes and produce less muscle fatigue. Pathetic aren't I?

Itinerology Film - Part One
Europe is an amazing place to explore. Feet tramping paths into the hills for over 10,000 years. Yes, mountain bikes can cause environmental wear and tear in remote places. Kinda like villages-horses-cities-cars-resorts have done over the years. My hunch is the mountains will still be there in five hundred years when we are all surfing hover-bikes over the same terrain. Wait until the pavements crumble and we can use the "old roads" as downhill race courses!

His First Name is “Dangerous” - The Dan Cowan Interview
Likewise! Stumbling down SexBoy on my '94 Kona Fire Mountain and wondering who the heck the "ghosts" were that rode all the high consequence stuff. Made me try something new every time I was out. Now I'm coaxing my kids on Fromme. That's your Legacy Dan!!.

Mercedes-Benz Signs on as Title Sponsor of the UCI World Cup
@Dustfarter: which makes it all the worse that it gets driven around Vancouver corporate district on chrome rims and street tires. No self respecting owner of the Best4x4xFar should be wearing anything other than flannel or fleece in the PNW.

8 Tips and Tricks for Wet Weather Riding
Vancouver is wet for half the year and riding continues. Most (not all) trails are built with excellent attention to drainage and all season design and also water simply doesn't stick on the steeper north shore routes. The higher elevation trails get snow but its easily possible to ride excellent trails in the morning and go skiing in the afternoon.
