Pinkbike Poll: If You Had to Ride One Bike for the Rest of Your Life, What Would It Be?
@brncr6: Hear Hear!! 51 and still prefer a Cotic BFe with 150mm Pike for most things. All bikes make me feel my age these days..., and I've been riding LTHTs for over a decade, so I'd probably just stick to one of them if I had to choose. A new BFe Max would be lovely but my teenage kids don't leave the finances for that at the minute!!!!

Throwback Thursday: Jared Graves' World Champs Medal on an Enduro Bike
@GBeard: I hear you GBeard; I was out today on my 2011 Banshee Spitfire... Maybe it's just that I have been riding it for so long, but all other bikes just don't seem to 'fit' me as well.. Love the bike you ride eh...

Cotic Launches the New BFeMAX Hardcore 29" Hardtail
@JohanG: My money says that it isn't him in the slightest.....Waki is not one to hide behind any kind of pretence... Someone is a bit bored and wants to try a bit of trolling... Waki is, in my book, busy at work right about now with no time for this until way later on in the Swedish day.. My money is on an Antipodean influence...

Video: Conflict Arises Between 17 Year Old UK Rider & Apparent "Trail Saboteurs"
Agreed. Good job Nathan. You made the BBC too... https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-york-north-yorkshire-52660528 For those of you interested "The landowners said they were aware of informal use of the wood by local mountain bikers, who had "always behaved responsibly", and were looking to allow them formal access. A spokesperson for the Bolton Estate condemned the women's actions, adding: "The laying of traps to recklessly or even deliberately endanger anyone is wholly unacceptable." "

Whistler Mountain Bike Park Opening Delayed
@nismo325: Just trying to help everyone see through the fog of lazy language; words are bounded around far too easily, as you say.

Video: 24 More Feature-Length Movies to Stream in Self-Isolation
Everyone has their favourites of course. If I may though ask for a moment to advocate for Seasons here a little. IMHO Seasons is still one of the best, most well crafted documentaries of what it means to be "a mountain biker"; Seasons manages to distil that through of the quality of the movie's storytelling. It masterfully takes you behind what is going on mentally, on many levels, with of each of the riders; each of whose story is genuinely unique, and blends that in with the footage and music to near perfection. Very few movies have managed to do that as well as the Collective achieved in Seasons in my opinion. (Opinions will of course vary and there should be room for a wide variety of those.) The depth of that storytelling, for me at least, is what made Seasons not only a stand out movie in 2008, it continues to be one of the best ever, even more than a decade later. I mean what other movie has made a man in a wet-suit throwing himself into a freezing cold lake such gripping watching? Seasons achieved that... there's storytelling right there! Thanks for reading.

Good Month / Bad Month: Home Bike Maintenance, Training Indoors, Videos, & Everything Else - March 2020
This ↑. I personally, will not be playing that game. A chance for mirth though, I will not pass up. Oh to have been a fly on the virtual video conferencing wall when that little agenda item came up.. Park: "So, what have we got left in the tank people? Come on, ideas people... don't be shy!!" Kazimer: "There's the Grim Donut test" Levy: "We're not done yet, I've only had 300 hours on it" Park: "Well, throw them a bone at least Levy, knock up something to keep them interested. And for my sanity's sake, get more bottle bosses in it somewhere at least... I don't need to spend any more of my time sifting through acerbic comments from the mob." Levy:"But..." Park: "Levy! Don't interrupt! What have I told you..." Levy: "Sorry Brian." Park: "Brie, what you got?" Brie "Ummmm.....well... we have that story about how $820 billion will be lost globally in the MTB tourism sector, and how cash flow problems in..." Park: "We need them to STAY on the site Brie, not fall asleep at it... Jeez. Mitch?" Mitch: "There's that story I've been working on about how all trail dogs resemble their owner's moustaches..." Park: "(sigh)... Mitch, how many times Mitch... NO!" Mitch: "Yes boss." Aidan "Umm....I have an idea..." Park: "Sorry AIdan, did you squeak?" Aidan "Well, it's just that I....thought, you know, we might be able to get them to, you know, stay on the site by giving them some more polls to do.." Park: ".....that, Aidan... is....brilliant!!! Did you hear that the rest of you? Here's someone who knows what this site is here for in reality. Aidan, you are a genius. Right, let's go the whole hog, I want you to throw every goddam poll we have ever run in the past five years at 'em. Big yellow tab screaming at them on the header bar. I want everyone on it, every user to do every poll" Aidan: "What do you mean, everyone?" Park: " https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NRIr9MNmCwU "
