BMC's New SpeedFox AMP eMTB - Bike Connection Winter 2018
The red and green models are by far the nicest looking ebike I’ve seen to date. I used to think eBikes were (for want of a better word) ‘gay’. But after watching a few of Sam pilgrims and embn videos I think eBikes look fun. Just a shame the absolute max budget on my next bike is likely to be £1k

Talking About Tire Pressure - Pinkbike Poll
My current tyre actually says min pressure is 35psi max is 65psi. It’s a very hard compound tyre perfect for all I have time for at the moment that’s blasting fire roads

Talking About Tire Pressure - Pinkbike Poll
I’ve received stick on here before when I say I run 45-60psi depending on the trail. But I’m a big guy 250lb and have fairly narrow rims and if I ran them any lower I’m prone to pulling the tyre off the rim. In the past on wider rims when I was lighter I happily ran 20-25psi

Carbon vs Aluminum: Separating Environmental Fact From Fiction in the Frame Materials Debate
How people can say metal is cleaner then carbon is beyond me. I’ve worked in Foundery’s making aerospace components not bikes but it’s the same in all the factory’s. They are dirty polluting places. The amount of oil wasted to cool the cutting head on a cnc machine. The amount of energy used to keep a blast Furnace at operating temp when it’s not been used or to power a centrifuge you can fit 20 people inside . And then there’s the tons of sawdust we used the throw onto the steel slugs in the drop forge to stop the slug sticking to the die not to mention the 100 lorry’s a day picking up and dropping of supplies. But in the same factory we also made carbon false limbs, that room was so clean I used to go there to eat my lunch. But that’s just my opinion from a manufacturing point

Pinkbike Poll: Does Bike Weight Matter?
im 246lb and know what you mean although before My last bulk up( im also a weight lifter) I was 217lb. And can't tell a ounce of difference on the climbs now I’m 30lbs heavier but that might be because I’ve doubled my squat weight in a year

Pinkbike Poll: Does the Current Method of Mountain Bike Classification Make Sense?
They do kind of make scene but I always thought all mountain and free ride were the same thing just depended on the brand or media outlet as to which term was used
