Ridden & Rated: 29" DH bikes From Intense, Saracen, GT & Devinci
Honestly... I was thinking the same thing. In a dh machine like this... great performing suspension should be a massive massive plus. No XL... o.k. well... is that a ding for anyone under 6'2? You need to talk about the bike and the people buying/riding that bike in a review not those that aren't/can't. Those people clearly aren't interested in that bike because they can't buy a big enough one. The bike that got the thumbs up has crappy components for the money and has maintenance issues. And is expensive. But it looks pretty. Didn't realize I was reading a Men's Health review.

The 2018 Photo of the Year Winner is…
Great photo but it's a scenery shot. The bike in the shot or out of the shot doesn't effect it as a picture what so over. The Sterling shot... is about the rider and setting up the entire seen. Much more complete BIKE image in my opinion. But the winner is a beautiful scene.

Voting Closed for the FINAL ROUND of the 2018 Pinkbike Photo of the Year Contest
@bressti: Agreed. I felt like a couple of the early ones to lose were kind of in the same boat.

An Update on Richie Rude & Jared Graves' Failed EWS Drug Test
I'm all for punishing people. But in this particular situation I can't behind a huge suspension. Every single organization has a first timers discipline level. So, it's not like this is alien. They can literally just consider them both suspended from the time of the test last year through to the first race of this year. That's a 6 month suspension. Lose all your results. The reality is that they have not got their crap together as an organization. They don't want to deal with it and don't know how to deal with it right now. Not disciplining them sends a bad message but you also can't just make an example out of them for the sake of making an example. You'll just end up with another Lance Armstrong situation. Where everyone knows that everyone is freaking doing the same damn thing but one guy is getting tested more than everyone else and then everyone zero's in on that one person. All the while, their competition is still doing it. So it really does nothing to stop the problem. Baseball is a great example. They zoned in on the big guys because it was obvious. So those guys are getting slammed while dudes coming up through the minors are juicing to the gills to try to get their shot. Damaging their health and their future while not being properly tested. Dudes are doing this crap all the damned time in all sports. Juice. Get paid. Get caught... oh well. Retire. I don't want to see that happen in EWS. There is a correct way to do this. They have now officially caught 2 super stars. Suspend them. Then lay the ground work on how you're going to test EVERYONE the same amount of times randomly throughout the year. That way you're not saddled with having to test everyone at every event. But at least everyone knows they can get tested at any point in time at any event. Or after every event. This is a unique situation. Saying they're both first timers is not an excuse. It's reality. Have they failed test before? You just said it's been in place since day 1. Ever failed? Interesting that they both failed on the same shit. Seems to support what they're saying. Comparing this to muggers is the weakest thing I've read today. LOL. Hell first time muggers and first time murderers... same damn thing. Give em both life. Right. Same same. You stole a candy bar... ah damn... go to jail with that dude that just robbed a bank using an AR15. Same same. This is why this becomes the type of issue it does. People just need to use common sense.

An Update on Richie Rude & Jared Graves' Failed EWS Drug Test
Sorry... but the EWS has to get their stuff figured out before they can hand down any sanctions what so ever. This entire situation is so backwoods it's not even funny. Figure it out. Use these 2 guys as an example as to why you need to get your stuff figured out. Write a concrete rule set with defined suspensions. Both of these guys are first timers and you know for damn sure a bunch of people are on the same or similar stuff so you know they're not the only ones out there. You can just random pop dudes. Get a top to bottom test in place. Rules in place. Then start handing out suspensions. For now. Take away any results from after the bad test. Let them start 2019 fresh.

Photo Randoms: Embracing the Mud - 2019 Windrock Pro GRT
@hamncheez: Hell yeah dude. Utah has been getting it. My buddy moved there and it seems like the dude is riding powder every freaking day. Most of the country got their fair share for Feb. I personally hope it continues into April. Though I'm tired of the rain/water issue at my house. Freaking leach lines are filling up my septic system.
