Good Month / Bad Month: October 2018
Go ride the smallest line there, then come back to pinkbike. Things evolve and change with the riders who are capable of riding at that level. Landings are packed and buff so people don’t tomahawk when they land a 50-60’ drop, especially when they land imperfectly. If shit didn’t change we’d all be on karpiels with super monsters and nokians. I’m glad we are where we are currently. If you want to see freeride change so badly, sack up and push the sport that way with your vision. Otherwise it’s gonna be up to the dudes hunting that podium each year, the ones who actually have the skill and desire to be there.

British Mountain Biker Shot Dead Near Morzine by Hunter
@HadrienButte: how ignorant are you? Google southern US wild pigs. See what happens when a species has no other source of population control. Now tell me you’d walk up to one of them and make it your “pet”. Not sorry....

British Mountain Biker Shot Dead Near Morzine by Hunter
@mattwragg: good comment. I was curious when I scrolled down what the response would be. Lots of hate for the hunter of course. The word I keep seeing referenced is experienced. The KID was 22, that is still young. He was most likely not very experienced and made a life ending and life changing mistake. And from what it sounds like, he clearly is struggling to comprehend what happened. Hearts with both sides on this one. I want everybodyto think about his side for a minute. Imagine being his age again (a lot of you reading this are probably still there or younger) and the excitement he probably felt to go out with an older group and hunt. Now imagine what he’s going through after making a split second mistake. It’s still tragic for both parties, they both deserve compassion and sympathy. Not a public lynching. The guilt in his mind and heart right now is enough to hospitalize him, that’s fucking painful if you’ve never experienced anything like it.

Fox DPX2 Trunnion 205x65mm

$350 USD
Brand new Fox DPX2 performance elite. 205 x 65. This is the higher end “Black” version. Same as factory without Kashima. This is coming off a 2019 Ttansition Patrol that hasn’t been built yet. So shock is completely unridden.

Evil Releases New 140mm 29er - The Offering
@jasperwesselman: the ultimate hype brand. For a brand that started out plagued with issues, everybody still held hope and gave them sympathy. I suppose it was in a hope of seeing them grow into something new and special. They certainly grew, in a way that benefits them...they love to blame everyone else. If anybody cares to go read the full release on vital or other sites, they don’t admit they they were following rider demands and trends when chooseing the new geo. They blame it on their customers running it with too long of a fork in the low and slack setting...

GoPro Launches New Hero 7 Camera
Seems kinda like sixes to me. Buy new camera, or buy post software like reelsteady. Never used reelsteady personally, but from what I’ve seen, you could launch a potato and call it a drone after processing. $399 though...

Tariffs on Chinese Bicycles & Parts Will Begin Next Week
@code26: one of the first things trump targeted in his tariffs this year was raw materials such as aluminum and steel. Seemingly unrelated to manufactured products. But, to cope with the tariffs, producers in China up their prices of materials. US manufacturers now have to buy their materials at a higher price. To deal with this higher price, they charge more for their product that you want to buy. Now with this last round of tariffs, the components being spec’d on that product, if you wish to buy complete, are also going to increase in price. Any components or materials sourced elsewhere already tend to cost more than from China. And now that China is upping their price, and driving demand else where, these other sources can up their costs as well if they choose to.
