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.

They fit my screen great. Although I'm not on a tablet or phone, since I'm old.

Pinkbike Poll - How Many Days Did You Ride in 2016?
I don't count, so I'm not sure, but normally get 3 rides a week in. 2 after work, and one on the weekends, pretty much all of daylight savings allows this. Then winter.... I'm lucky (somewhat planned) to live where it's possible to ride in the winter if you have the light. Although I must admit the good trails are almost done until springtime. There are trails to ride just to ride.

You Don't Need to Learn on a Hardtail - Opinion
I rode BMX for a few years in the mid-west. Then I moved out to mountains, and bought a hardtail mountain bike. The first season I was excited to try a new sport, by midway the second season, I was back on my BMX and the hardtail was rarely used. Mountain biking sucked, I'd rather ride the trails. A few years passed, and I rode a demo full suspension bike, and I was ready to try again. It took a long time for me to decide to put up that kind of money since my first experience was not great, but I did it anyway. Now Mountain biking is my sport and I'm in the mountains a couple days a week, and miss it horribly when I can't be there. The fun to work ration of a hardtail is not in balance for beginners. The accomplishment of clearing a difficult section comes with experience, beginners just get frustrated.

Fox Wants to Upgrade Your Float 34 Fork With Its New Air-Spring Kit
I'd consider this if I didn't have to send my fork to Fox. If I could get this done @ my LBS within a week, I'd be researching this more. I'm not sure I need it and I certainly don't need to be off my bike for an unnamed amount of time to get it done.

Pinkbike Poll: Who Has the Right of Way - the Climber or the Descender?
When on a multi use trail, you shouldn't be going balls out fast down the hill. You need to be able to stop for a hiker or dog on trail, and not just assume they will quickly get out of your way. So assuming you are already riding in control, it shouldn't be a big deal for the down-hiller to yield. The down is my reward for going up, but there is a purpose to my going up. I'm testing and pushing my fitness level that will allow me to take that mountain bike vacation and not be beat after the first day. Did you have to slow down too much for that drop or jump because I was coming up? So sorry, but turn your bike around and go back up 100 yards and get back at it.

Opinion: Should You Take More Risks?
Taking risks is part of mountain biking, it's just a matter of how much risk you want to take. Unfortunately the consequences can be anything from being off the bike for a short period of time to life changing incidents. So I have a line in the sand I don't cross. I try and sneak up as close as I can, but some risks I'm just not willing to take.
