Carbon vs Aluminum: Separating Environmental Fact From Fiction in the Frame Materials Debate
First: Thanks for making this article. Being a avid biker, bike mechanic and having worked in the bike industrry for a long time, now working as a enviormental an climate engineer, this is maybe the most interesting articles to come out of Pinkbike. Also growing up in a town, which has Norway's biggest aluminium plant (Yara Aluminium, Karmøy), hits even more home. That said, all my high end bikes (DH, trail, road) are carbon, and only my dirt jumper is alu. Making aluminium takes a huge amounts of energy, typically 13 kWh/ton. Yara aluminium plant has recently (fall 2017) built a new groundbreaking facility, with new tecnology (dubbed HAL4e) reducing this down to 11,8 kWh/ton. 15% decrease is quite significant when we're talking about a factory which churns out 75 000 tons a year. To put it short: That's a reduction of 90 000 kWh/year or about 562 500 km in a Tesla Model S85 (to the moon an half way back). Also it will be the plant in the world with the lowest CO2-equivalent per kg produced at 3,5kg CO2 versus Kina's plants at around 18-20kg CO2.

2017 Pinkbike Awards - Gear Accessory of the Year Nominees
How often do you actually need this? Get together with a group of riding buddies and buy it together. I mean, you problably won't be using it more than a couple of rides a season. After that you should have a clue how to best set up your bike for different scenarios. Or, check if your LBS has one, and ask if you can rent one. The shop I work in has one, that all the shop guys can borrow, and all customers can rent for a weekend. (Just like travel bike bags) Typical stuff you use once in a while, but not every ride.

Intense M16C Pro Build - Review
@rbscs2010: If you're in love with the V10, go for the V10. Easy. Both bikes are awesome.

Intense M16C Pro Build - Review
@rbscs2010: I had the choice between the two as well, and went for the M16c, and am very happy with my choice. I much prefer the liveliness of the M16c, rather than the freight-train feel of the V10c(c). I bought mine big (L), and mounted a short 25mm stem on it (I'm 173cm), which suits my riding style brilliantly. I felt right at home on the bike as soon as I mounted it. So the question is: What type of tracks do you ride, and what's your riding style like?
