Behind the Numbers: Unno Dash
@StFred: That's funny, here in PNW if you show up with a 34t I feel sorry about your fitness, because it means you walk the good climbs.

First Look: Pivot's Phoenix Dock Tool System
@rojo-1: wow that could be a problem - often hike for 30-40 minutes with the saddle nose hanging on my shoulder. But I'm running a Transfer and before that a command post so not a problem, but I'll keep that in mind if I ever buy a different dropper.

Ask Pinkbike: Carbon vs. Aluminum Rims, Mismatched Drivetains, Coil Shock Sag, & How Much Travel Does a Beginner Need?
@WAKIdesigns: @WAKIdesigns: I have to give you more than an upvote for your long post above about developing skills. One of the best posts I've ever read on how to truly get better at mtb. We all wish just riding will make us as skilled as we like to be but this is why there is coaching. Just like in auto racing if all you do is try to go as fast as you can around the track you will never progress past a point. YOu must break movements down into sequences, apply rational thought and effort to habits, break out of comfort zones. I'm as guilty as anyone of just riding my bike while expecting to get better but always running up against the same barriers. Although I must mention, all that getting off angle and out of position will lead to falls, which is why it seems to get harder and harder to do such exercises. Been able to wheelie since 6th grade, but at 52 trying to learn manuals has been a frustrating experience, I think I can never get over the fear of smashing my tailbone.

Review: Spot's Ryve 115 29 is a Part-Time Racer Doing Trail Bike Duty
What about a DH bike with an 11 speed drivetrain, dropper post, and possibly enduro spec rather than DH spec wheels ? UPDH ? Or an Enduro ready frame/fork with good climbing geo and a slightly lighter wheel/tire set than usual ? Upduro

Pinkbike Poll: If Every Ride Was Solo, Would You Still Mountain Bike?
I have the same problem. Been lucky enough to engage with some guys half my age. They can keep up for the most part ha ha. But they are faster on the DH - I find as I get older I"m not as fast as I used to think I was.

Field Trip: Is Buying a Used Mountain Bike Worth It?
I've bought 2 used bikes from PB and sold 3. All transactions worked out great. However I will reiterate what others have said - 90% of the asking prices on PB are from sellers high on crack. I sometimes think there are a lot of people who just automatically list the bike they own at a high price just in case they can get it and then springboard to something newer. I put good realistic prices on my used bikes and they sell quickly and everyone's happy.
