Just want to enjoy the outdoors and benefit from modern equipment. Lately that translates to a good hardtail. Anything more I will just buy the ktm streat legal dirtbike.No ebike for me on trails, but if people like them, ride them! I coexist with horses, hikers, or kx500. Just be polite to other trail users.

Opinion: Save the Turns, Stop the Straightlines
People are gonna trammel your favorite trail. They are just trying to get up and down the hill and have fun. Not every clown on 2 wheels can feather every little section of trail with class and grace. Take a moment and imagine what hikers think of the results of big bikes ripping around their home area. Let alone when they are terrified some shag on a enduro tearing down (or up on an ebike)through their family hike and they gotta scuttle kids and pets out of the way or SPLAT. Respect other trail users first. Respect the trail second. Respect your priveledge to even use the trail or lose it. I wont shut you down... they will. And they can be nasty. Barb wire at neck height in colorado springs on a a known trail, bikers not welcome on for example, I rode it many times, the news scared me for real. Big rocks in the key transition landing on others, f××kin ugly if you haulin through there. EVEN WORSE Groups lobby to exclude bikes, and guess what? Best trails in the valley closed to mtb. Tread lightly and be polite. Be smooth and care for others. And yeah... dont cut the corner or make a new pussy route. Also this article is just gasoline on a fire. This whole thing is common sense.

Buying a Bike From a Shop Versus Buying Online
Local dealer put a nice rocky mountain on sale. Done. I know my size, I know the bike, I know I want it... Cash in hand, call in advance etc. Strangely my size was not available when I arrived. HOWEVER we have some bullcrap with sram sx and brand bxskunk forks available today in your size... Cue up a short discussion about how great sram Sx can be for YOU!! Then cue up a walk out and online order. "What payment is in your range?"

Pinkbike Poll: Are You Satisfied With Your Brakes?
My scrotum was torn on a hot brake pad. After a rousing bagpipe sonata of amazing grace, i got back on the horse and broke it with the brakes it came with. Not worried about scars because big boy looks like great white shark with the battle scars and such, like flipping 3 burgers at once on the bbq gonna leave a mark...
