Injured Rider Unsuccessful in Lawsuit Against Whistler Bike Park
The repercussions of him being successful would have been devastating. Best case is park park costs would go way up to cover his and the subsequent law suits. Worst case is bike parks would shut down, trail builders would stop working on public trails for fear of being sued and trails would be decimated. If you follow through the trickle down, I honestly don't think that's too much of an exaggeration. Thank you courts for the correct decision. As an aside, I have personal injury and life insurance for this - I highly recommend others do the same. It's too late after, do it as soon as you can.

Pinkbike Poll: Convertible Full-Face Helmets - Yea or Nay?
I spent most of last summer nursing a messed up lip, or a messed up nose from falls that weren't that bad, just happened to fall in to a pile of rocks, and a fallen tree. I search for one of these that fit with no joy. I got the bell 3r the other day as they changed the fit enough to make it work for me (the 2r had 2 things that were digging in at the back). I'm looking forward to trying it out and seeing how often I use the chin bar. I have a proper dh helmet for park etc, but for the shore I think one of these is a great idea.

Never ridden in the bike park. I love this bike, it's a great all rounder, capable of long rides or taking a beating if that's your thing. I'm only selling it as I had a hip replacement recently and can't ride at the moment. By the time I can, I will be looking at 2017 bikes.

Escape to the Chilcotins - Photo Epic
This is the classic place for "its just one bike" thinking. Please don't be that kind of jerk and respect this environment.

Why You Need to Crawl Like a Baby to Ride Like a Man (or Woman)
@Eastbournemtber: I didn't read all the articles in your link, as there are a lot, but there seems to be a disconnect in terminology. The articles do indicate that focusing on abdominal exercises to relieve back pain is a flawed approach, but the core is much larger than abdominals. My understanding is that the core as referred to by most respected trainers is basically the body if you were to cut off the arms and legs. Exercises like the ones suggested here impact upper and lower back, abs, chest etc - "the core". I don't see how working all those things can be anything but positive.

BC Bike Race 2016 Day 5: North Vancouver
As someone who volunteers (and sometimes gets paid) building these trails, I can say that events like this just add to the passion. It's with a lot of pride that trail builders see these events on their trails, and we want nothing more than to see people enjoy them. I can't officially speak for every one of those volunteers - but unofficially, I think we all love it. The fact that someone gets paid for this, and is able to make a career out of mountain biking just makes it even more satisfying - we know these guys personally, and we know how hard they work on this, and how much of what they do is with a passion for biking, a passion for the shore and a passion for trails, This isn't "about" the money. The money is necessary to make it happen, but they are not making money from the trails - they are making money from their jobs - organising a massive event, and they deserve it. Sure the trails help them do that, but BCBR also volunteers time to build trails, they volunteer resources for events and I believe they give money - because actually money does help build trails.

Rocky Mountain Maiden World Cup - Review
I agree completely with this review. I was loaned one for a week, used it on at Whistler and on the shore and I had a huge smile on my face the whole time - this is just a really, really fun bike. To me it felt like a much smaller bike when I was in anything tight, or in the air, but anytime I got in trouble - it still had the forgiveness of a big big. It's nimble, predictable, controllable, forgiving, and actually doesn't pedal too badly (for a dh bike) - basically everything an ordinary mortal would look for in a DH bike.

Getting Raw With Remy Metailler on the Trail Bike - Video
Actually, just watched it again, and it's more than the 1 trail I was thinking of. I recognize some of the other lines, but not all of them.

@NorthShore19: I'm not one to give away trail locations, but I will say it's on Trailforks.
