Ridden & Rated: 13 of the Best Dropper Posts
Are all dropper posts internally triggered these days? Mine is not, and my bike won't route an internal cable. So am I stuck with the one I have until I buy a new bike?

Independent Lab Test Finds Airbag Helmet is Safest
@lenniDK: I like the idea, but I'm not sold yet. How much does it cost to refill after it goes off? What's the false alarm rate? This seems like a solution for the road rider only. Which is good for them. I set up my crash alert on my GPS regularly. I've had a lot of close calls without crashes, but with sudden stops. would each of those require a rebuild? Can you imagine, 20 minutes into your ride, you get a false alarm, it deploys and you need to end your ride because you have no helmet left.

Winner Announced: Win It Wednesday - Enter to Win 1 of 2 SQlab 6OX Saddles
@gPark: I've got a year on my SQ Labs saddle, and it was a game changer for me. apparently I need a wider saddle (I'm a small guy) I tried a wider WTB and it wasn't the right saddle. Now when I ride, I feel my sit bones resting on the saddle and it is so much more comfortable. The WTB might have worked, but it was too soft, and I never felt the support on my sit bones the way I do with the SQ Labs.

Pinkbike Poll: What Other Cycling Competition Would You Try?
@heffernw: I tried flatland BMX. I thought it might be less risk as I get older. But its hard and more risk than I realized.

Final Round Voting Closed: 2019 Pinkbike Photo of the Year Contest
I'm pretty certain I voted against these on each and every round. Makes me feel really out of touch with who voted. Makes me a little sad. I won't even vote this last round because I don't like either. Neither one of those photos makes me want to go out and ride, and I think that's what makes a good mountain bike picture.

You Say Progression, I Say Potato - Sunday Comics with Taj Mihelich
@Boosting: Mine have come from trying to maintain speed in flat-ish sections. In the land of the rocks, they all start looking the same, complacency sets in and next thing you know you are on the ground.

@Rucker10: Canada is a big place. That's like saying there are two service centers in the US.

2019 Pinkbike Awards: Innovation of the Year Winner
@priest55: A firmware problem likely won't but a battery problem definitely will. I can't say I would be excited about plugging my bike into power after a ride or having it fail near the end because I hadn't. I see the issue as having to plug it in every time as a hassle. Or that the battery is long lasting so you don't have to constantly watch it, where you may run it down without realizing it.

2019 Pinkbike Awards: Value Product of the Year Nominees
Seems like the perfect DH setup from my perspective. I don't need more than 9 on DH, and cheap replaceable works for DH too.

Study Suggests eMTBs Provide a Similar Workout to Regular Mountain Bikes Even Though They Feel Easier
This argument about being able to ride faster on an ebike seems like marketing BS to me. Yes, I understand in theory you can ride an ebike faster. However, the trails I have access to are multi use. I could always ride faster on my non-assisted bike, but because of blind turns and other users on the trail, I am speed limited. So having an e-bike to go faster is useless. It would only assist in my climbs making my workout less.
