Pinkbike Poll: What Do You Perceive to Be the Riskiest Outdoor Sport?
big +1 to this. I've been working in a shop for years and the injuries that customers and employees get from these sports are all more frequent on road cycling and are more likely to be fatal

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Care About the Carbon Footprint of Your Bike?
the carbon footprint is just part of the story. I would take that into account, but I'm also interested in the shipping and manufacturing of the bike. Right now I'm strongly in favor of brands like guerilla gravity, davinci, reeb, and ibis that are either all or partly made in north america. Knowing that the frame and materials traveled less distance does mean a lower carbon footprint; but also less pollution, tighter control of the supply chain, less chance for human cost, and faster turn around on new designs. Not to mention that this past year has through into stark contrast the differences in availability and turnaround time between domestic and foreign production.

Nerding Out: Why You Shouldn't Worry Too Much About Weight
One counter-argument in favor of lighter bikes that wasn't directly mentioned is the handling in tech and 'tricks'. A lot of the ways we maneuver a bike in technical sections and for doing tricks (manualing, wheelies, bunny hops, pops, endo's etc) are all about leveraging your rider weight against the bike's weight. The bigger the ratio of rider/bike the easier it is to move that bike when doing these moves. Again, small marginal gains won't make a huge difference, but it is noticeable when you shave a kilo or so off of a bike.

Video: How Tom Wheeler Rides with a Paralysed Arm
I very cool to see prosthesis that are designed by the people who will actually use them, rather than the very flashy but not very useful bits that abled folk design. The whole thing becomes so much more purpose built and functional

Pinkbike Poll: What If eMTBs Weighed & Cost The Same As Regular Bikes?
I like that the ebike will be an option when I start to get old and creaky, but for now it's not a necessity. Even at the same weight and cost, it's one more battery to charge and another complex mechanical system that could break

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 83 - Does Carbon Fiber Belong On Your Mountain Bike?
@Bobadeebob: surprisingly some companies are using scrap carbon from the aerospace industry. You're not usually seeing that on frames, and it's far from the norm, but pretty cool that some accessories and components are using carbon that could have been in a 757 wing spar.

that pivoting linkage on the front end is so brilliant. Some frame stock and a hand full of headsets gets you a very stable front end
