Pinkbike Poll: Would You Pay A Rider For Their Video?
I would pay for a video that features the rider on a trail that is not specifically built for a segment and does not involve continuous shots of being in the air. My favorite videos have always been ones featuring ultra talented riders riding everyday trails (relatively speaking), but what sets them apart is how they ride the trail vs myself or other ordinary rider. Think of Remy Metailler in his shred it video in Squamish or anything pretty much Simmons has done, etc. Ultra talented riders on trails that lots of people ride. in the same vain I am interested in seeing riders using their talent to conquer a piece of terrain, not a shovel and a build crew.

Patrol Releases Carbon Fiber Kids' Bike Range - Across the Pond Beaver
Nice bikes, but way more than any kid needs for riding around. Parent's need quality, affordable bikes for the kids. Quality bikes can be made for less than 1,000 bucks... Manufacturers should aim at 200 - 400 price range.

Pinkbike Poll: Would You Rather Shuttle or eMTB?
I would rather E-Bike than Shuttle. 1. Better for Environment 2. Less time stuffed in a car 3. More time on bike 4. Mores areas to access and lap 5. Even if it is assisted you are earning your turns with a pedal up 6. Don't need a truck and/or multi bike rack 7. Can go it alone

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 19 - The Hardtail Episode
I live in Vancouver, am old, ride frequently (Fromme and Seymour mostly ), have 2 arthritic ankles and worn cart-ledge in one knee. I only own two bikes, a commuter and a Hard-tail. I have yet to experience sore ankles, or knees after riding my hard tail on trails. Nor have i experienced a pain in my back, shoulders, or wrists after riding. The only times I have experienced any pain after a ride was from crashing. I am not the smoothest of riders or fantastically gifted as a rider and tend to ride rough. Given my experience, i just don't understand how riding a hardtail leaves one feeling beat up. I rode a FS for years prior to this past year when i switched to a hardtail and have not noticed an appreciable difference in discomfort.

Field Test: Revel Ranger - It Just Wants to Party
@snl1200: 100% agree with this. My own personal experience had me ignore professional reviews in favors of friend's opinion's and reviews of bikes and parts. Looking back I realize I made some very poor decisions taking advice and opinions from friends over professional review information. Users tend to pepper reviews and opinions with their personal preferences, while a professional reviewer tends to be objective and has more data points to support their statements. My favorite example of when i should went with the professional review was when my friends talked me into swapping out a Marazochi Super T fork for a Stratos S7 on a bike i was purchasing. They were like the Super T is too small, its not strong enough, etc. We have all heard the S7 is soo cool and it works really well, its perfect for you. 6 months later i traded the S7 for a pair of Skis and than made a second mistake getting a Monster T.... When all long i should have stayed with the super T which was reviewed as a capable fork. My preference at that time was for a reliable piece of equipment that worked well. I did not care about having the flashiest or newest piece of equipment or the most travel etc. Just wanted something that was reliable and effective which would have been the super T not any of the other forks. This was back in 2000 when i made this mistake. The funny thing is when i had the S7 and Monster T, there was no way i would have ever admitted to them being totally wrong for what i wanted. i spoke highly of both items when i owned them to justify the expense of acquiring them. I would never admitted the S7 was Junk and the Monster T turned my bike into a heavy bulldozer that plowed straight down a trail but could not do much else.
