Video: Party Trains on a Freshly Reopened Boogie Nights on Mount Seymour
I was expecting this to be a sweet build with it being closed for so long, but you surpassed my expectations - that's a LOT of work. Well done builders, well done riders, well done Kona. Thank you all!

Opinion: The Proxy War Between Discovery & Red Bull Is Official
David Attenborough is the obvious discovery channel choice isn't he? (do your best Attenborough impression while reading) "And here we have the French participant Amaury Pierron, a close relative of Baptiste Pierron who is competing for the same prize. Note how both riders employ the same technique of flicking the tail out to attract a mate"

Tuhoto Ariki Pene Joins MS Mondraker
Stoked to see a young Kiwi doing well. I get the feeling he's going to be at the sharp end of results in coming years.

Pinkbike Poll: How Reliable Are Modern Mountain Bikes?
I think this is a bit skewed by realists. I think all of us would make that sacrifice if it was possible, but no-one actually believes that we would get perfect reliability with 1kg.

Video: $1100 vs. $6500 In Upgrades On A Used Mountain Bike - Budget vs. Baller Episode 5
I hope they add an extra lap for the final test, but swap bikes. We need to know who's faster.

Video: Rachel Strait on Motherhood & Finding Her Path in 'Don't Define Me'
I think it's more of a society thing than a mountain bike thing. My wife had to put up with a lot of "oh you're not going to be able to ride like you're used to", or "no time for anything anymore, guess you'll be selling your bike now" comments from the general public and non-riding friends. Riding friends were more like "as soon as you're ready to ride - let's go". She's actually had better race results since having kids than before - including a 3rd at the Whistler EWS (masters).

Video: $450 vs. $2000 Suspension - Budget vs. Baller Episode 4
@mi-bike: That's pretty much the point of this series - it's all dependent on your point of view. I could say that they wasted $12, and I wasted nothing. I could say that I get $200 of enjoyment from my $140 stem. I could say my stem will be transferred from bike to bike, ultimately saving money in the long run. People in these comments seem to believe that no-one buys these products, but they are for sale, so I'm pretty sure some people are buying them (and companies don't make money selling 1 or 2 stems). Semantics aside, I think the criticism on this series has been unfair - I've enjoyed it.

It's entertaining. Not everything has to be a super serious review. Apart from which, I have actually had these very conversations with people who are just getting in to mountain biking "I found this stem for $12, can't believe you spent $140" is literally a conversation I have had (with a person who spent $80 on a stem a month later after their $12 stem slip threaded).

Completing The North Shore Triple Triple - 10,500 Meters of Climbing, 260 Kilometers & 40 Hours of Riding
I heard about this and wasn't the least bit surprised. I don't know Anthony, but feel like I do because any time anyone mentions doing something challenging on a bike around here it seems to be met with a comment like "sure, that's crazy, but did you see Anthony's ride" or even more often when looking at a line "Anthony rode down that" as they point at something that appears un-rideable, shakes head and walk away. Very impressive sir, I hope it was healing for you.

Racing Rumors 2022 Part 1: Luca Shaw to Specialized, Martin Maes to Orbea & More
I don't really care who rides what, but the most exciting thing for me is seeing developing riders getting attention, especially when they're from New Zealand or Canada. Happy for Tuhoto Ariki to be mentioned alongside some of these other big names.
