Bike Standards—How Did We Get Here?—A Podcast
@enrico650: That seems silly. Did they buy a bike as an investment? It's a poor investment. I still ride my 26" all-mountain bike and it gave me as much joy on my last ride as it did the first. Standards have no effect on my current ride, that is until I need to replace my bike, which when I do will likely come with wheels that fit the frame. The various standards would impact the aftermarket products more than the bike purchase. If you want a new set of wheels, you are now interested in the spacing standard.

Plowing Ashes with James Doerfling - Video
Watching the riding, I enjoyed the flow more. The pre ride, getting to the trail, any post ride and other "less action" I really enjoyed the stutter. If it were me, I'd try and merge them both into the same piece.

I have two calendars in my office. One is Pinkbike and the other is guitar. The dates I occasionally look at. The pictures add to my office environment. I even pulled the march 2016 picture out and have that posted too. Thanks pinkbike, I appreciate the effort.

Have Your Say on the Ever-Changing Bike Standards
@dtrotter: I bought my 26" bike at the end of life for that size, and it was a commitment to spend that amount on a bike. Since then I've done a few upgrades, and I'm planning on doing a 1X conversion next. Luckily the hub on my bike will take the bigger cassette, but had it not because of a new standard, I wouldn't be buying the 1X full set.

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.

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.
