Whistler Bike Park: Trail Engaged, Episode Two - Video
@Kirky86: " Probably the same dudes that go in and 'roost' berms in a bikepark, then moan about the brake bumps" Care to back this up with any evidence? It's unlikely people like that complain about brake bumps, and even if they do, the fact that they roost berms in no way changes the fact that brake bumps suck. When I was out in Whistler they didn't do much maintenance of brake bumps (that I noticed), however, I'd rather brake bumps than closed trails. And the park team did always seem busy.

Pinkbike Poll: How Many Crashes Before You Replace Your Helmet?
As for the poll itself, the answers provided do not cover appropriate responses and I really don't see the point in it other than to be deliberately contentious. The answer depends on the crash, the helmet used, where on the helmet (was it a bump on the "nose" section - which is just abs and often not padded - or was it a ringer to the temple?) It depends on so many things, and of course the manufacturers say replace it after one, they don't want to be culpable if there's an issue with someone using a lid twice do they? There are so many myths perpetuated about helmets (my favourite being that bike and ski helmets are different - hint, they're not, they're merely subjected to different tests and one has ear flaps and costs twice as much) and this poll does not contribute to a helpful discussion on the subject whatsoever. Frankly, this kind of BS serves only to put people off with engaging on the topic altogether.

Photo Epic: Coming to Grips with the New Leogang - DH World Cup Qualifications
Two things @jamesroxby. Firstly, it is asinine to suggest that because something is free it is therefore allowed to be bad without criticism. And secondly, value and worth are measured in more than money. Are you saying we should silently put up with badly written articles simply because they are free to read? And you may not pay for them, but people do pay to advertise. You may not care but I'm sure they do.

Fort William 2015 - MacLennan Photo Reel
Ah the Ian MacLennan school of photography. 1. Get as close as possible, show absolutely no context. As a guide, try not to let all of the bike/rider fit in the frame at once. 2. Give no thought to composition, people don't care about that, they just want to see things really, really close up. 3. When using a flash, forget about lighting the scene porperly, make it look like it was taken in the middle of the night. 4. By a Canon 70-200 IS L, it automatically takes good pictures for you. 5. The only pose bikers look good in is half way round a berm, railing turns is all there is to DH biking anyway. 6. Know/be related to someone at Pinkbike. Your disguise as a photographer is now complete.

By "hydrolic", do you actually mean hydraulic?

"Cheep"? Are you serious? I wouldn't get my bike serviced by someone who doesn't know the difference between cheap and cheep.

I think where people's heads are concerned rocks are also foreign objects.

Quite right @redrook, there's absolutely no evidence to suggest that a gopro mount has any impact on the efficacy of a helmet. Schumacher would be dead without his helmet, as it is he was just going so fast and had an incredibly hard impact to the head. All this helmet efficacy nonsense is a giant red herring.

Surviving Nepal On a Bike
I'm going to assume your last comment is rhetorical, since if it was genuine and you're seeking advice on a Nepal trip from PB comments, you really do have problems. So since it's intended as smart-arsed rhetoric, I will tell you to take the criticism, learn from your mistakes, and stop being defensive. Also, yes an article is to be read for pleasure, but not passively. If you read something and have no opinion afterwards, then you have no brain. And these comment sections are intended for exactly that, comments.
