Testing 27.5 vs 29 With Vanderham and Gauvin - Video
I've been in races with Ken, and can confirm that he is a lot less average than I am.

Pinkbike Poll: What Would You Change About Red Bull Rampage?
Judging rampage has to be the hardest thing to judge - freeride skiing is the closest I can think of, but that still seems less variable. What I would love to see is the line judged on its own merit before the riding even happens. E.g. if you ride this line and straight air everything, you will get 60 points compared to if you straight air everything on this line, you will get 40 etc. I think that would help us as viewers to get an objective measure of how the lines are viewed by judges and riders.

Rocky Mountain Slayer 770 Large

$4800 CAD
2017 Rocky Mountain Slayer 770 http://www.bikes.com/en/bikes/slayer/2017 This bike is amazing, I'm only selling it because I bought the 2018 version. I didn't get much riding in this year because of injury, and busy life stuff, and it shows. Rims are perfect, drive train is good (just put a new chain on it), back tire is still o.k. but showing a little wear, front is great. I put new brake pads in and gave it a bleed, but the old pads still had life (and they were the original pads). This bike really hasn't had much riding at all. Fork = RockShox Lyrik RCT3 170mm Shock = RockShox Super Deluxe Debonair RC3 165mm Brakes = Shimano XT Ice-Tec 203/180mm Rear Derailleur = Shimano XT 11spd Front Hub = Shimano XT Boost 15mm Rear Hub = Shimano XT Boost 148mm Seatpost = RockShox Reverb Stealth 30.9mm Cranks & Chainrings = Race Face Turbine Cinch 32T I'm willing to ship it at the buyers expense, but I will give preference to local buyers.

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.
