Pinkbike Poll: Do You Use Tire Inserts?
no puctures in 2 years my setup = 26" wheels mavic crossmax sx with 21mm internal width running 2.35 onza ibex and onza cannis tyres. Ive hit tons of nasty rocks at speed. I dont do huge jumps but im a hefty 15 stone on a shortish travel full susser and its held up fine this long. Even if im not jumping far i do land heavy sometimes in bad ways and still good.......probbably gonna have a wheel explode on me now ive typed this. dont know how everyone trashes so many tyres and wheels. I ride as often as poss in north wales were its nice and rocky and no issues with tyres and rims so far. Only thing is my wheel bearings wear out quicker than i like but thats it.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Use Tire Inserts?
i think its the newer wider rims that are the issue here.....i could be wrong but my old 21mm internal crossmax sx wheels have no issues in 2+ years heavy riding and im guessing its partly because the tire is much wider but if i run a similar width tire with say an internal 30mm its getting more like having stretched tires on a car and the rim edge is less protected. thats my guess anyways....

Flow Trail Overload? Or Never Enough Flow? - Pinkbike Poll
cant jump so I ride tech stuff. thing is when I was a younger mountainbiker jumping was for show offs and tech trails were what it was all about so jumping was only good for trashing bikes and parts which I did do a lot off but we never got crazy with tricks it was just us messing about to see who could go the highest or furthest. My real passion was in riding rough trails fast and nowadays really skillfull people make it look more like flying than riding. as I never invested enough time into it I subsequently missed the boat for the modern stunt show that cycling has become. I simply don't have the intent to learn the skill as its not something that I enjoy anymore. That said I have respect for these guys that have the balls to attempt all that they do. I think if the poll was done with age groups in mind most older guys would say they prefer the tech trails and younger guys would prefer the smoother flowy trails but so they can do huge jumps on.

Flow Trail Overload? Or Never Enough Flow? - Pinkbike Poll
actually all I tend to see is flowy tracks ridden really hard with huge jumps so much so that when im riding technical terrain with lots of rocks and tricky bits I feel lame because im shit at jumping. I feel that social media is pushing the insane jumping skills on people so much that I honestly feel I have to tell everyone that although im a keen mountainbiker who loves technical trails im not that good as I cant do backflips and such yet 20 years ago I would have been much prouder of my riding ability. I can get good times on strava compared to others heck im 28th on a local bermy section of my local trail out of several thousand but yet kinda feel like if you don't jump well then your shit......I would much rather ride the trail on the left cos I cant really do anything that special with the one on the right apart from ride a berm. a lot of pinkbike videos also show people with huge talent jumping all over the show on super smooth trails.
