Team Videos: Fort William DH World Cup 2017
@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.

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.
