Solving the Dropper Post Dilemma
I have three positions for my dropper. Fully up is pedal pedal pedal. Fully down is don't pedal, then I have to find the third position which is about an inch maybe 2 tops below the top but this is my ideal position for pedaling downhill. I still have power to pedal a bigger gear, and the seat is low enough where I can comfortably bunny hop. I'd be more interested in finding a dropper post that could find my third position easily.

Crankbrothers' New Klic Floor Pump - First Look
@employee7: People are having their cars broken into at some of our trailheads. Keep as little in the car as possible. That being said, I have a full set of bike tools in my trunk. Fingers crossed.

Manon Carpenter Retires from DH Racing
Bummed to hear that she isn't racing anymore, but I'm sure she is still riding, and I'd still kill to have her skills. Let's hope that the lack of racing just bring the utmost amount of joy for her when she chooses to ride her bike.

@humoroususername: It wasn't about gaps of talent in a womans field, it's about physics.A bigger wheel is more mass, and the tire on the outside makes it worse. Now when you get the wheel rolling, it has more momentum, and that is a good thing, especially downhill. But if you lack the power to make it roll, you are slow. So the example I noticed, was by the time the rider got to the "motorway" section, she appeared to be tired enough where she couldn't get the wheels back up to speed. If you have the power to overcome the heavy wheels, go 29" (most men racing UCI have that power) if you don't have the power, you may find that 29" wheel is slow at the end of the day when you get fatigued.

@hamncheez: Watching the women's race gave me pause. There was a rider on 29 who was fast at the top and slow at the bottom. It was almost as if she couldn't get the big wheels back up to speed. As a male who isn't big or strong, and could only hope to ride as well as the female competitors racing the WC, I think a 29" is completely out of the question for me. You are spot on with works for certain people.

Ask Pinkbike: 29er DH Bikes, Crankbrothers Pedals, and Norco Range vs Sight
@mikekazimer: I ride my BMX at least once a week, because it is hella fun.So much easier to toss around than my 26" mountain bike. But it sucks in the mountains. Going from a 20" to 26" is quite an adjustment, I don't ever see going to a 29, but I don't race downhill.

Angel Fire Bike Park Opening Date and Demo Daze Details
9-4 is a good day. Sucks when the weather rolls in and it becomes a 9-noon.

January 2017 - Good Month or Bad Month?
@SirNotAppearing: You are not well informed and your"facts" have lots of opinion in them. Sounds to me like you failed your critical thinking class.
