Trail Tools: Electric Chainsaw Vs. Electric Sawzall
Echo ms-2511T . Sure, it’s gas but if you run aspen gas and can sharpen a chain it’s essentially maintenance free. Under 6lbs and can cut 20”+ trees with the 12” bar. And 8-10” trees like butter. And your arms will give out before it burns 3/4L of gas. Makes electric saws look like toys. If there isn’t enough to cut for the little echo then a silky will do it.

Whistler Blackcomb Replacing Fitzsimmons Express Lift in 2023, Some Rolling Trail Closures Expected
Does anyone actually think they’ll be able to load 6-8 bikes per chair? 3 and one on the hook is a clusterfuck half the time as it is. It’s not going to add any real functional capacity to the bike park-there’s more space between chairs on an 8-pack. It’s gonna be hilarious in the winter too when a 8 person is feeding Garbo. It’ll be like running into a brick wall. Whoever is in charge at vail is a fucking idiot.

Fox Sues SRAM Over Fork Bleed Valves
What’s the point? It’s not like they can’t sell everything they can build. And how they ever got this patent with the amount of similar air bleed ports available for literally decades in moto forks and more recently mtb is kinda crazy. Fuck off fox, don’t fuck up the already wrecked supply chain. I’ll buy Rockshox next just as a nice thank you for this legal action.

Whistler Heli Biking Returns for Summer 2022 with Brand New Alpine Trail
Gonna be pretty funny when 100 people are pushing their bikes up this new trail on a weekend and a bunch of dentists are trying to ride down...

GeoMetron Teases 140mm S1 Trail Bike With Up To 570mm Reach
@sergeizhiest: how long did you actually try a bigger bike for? An hour isn’t gonna so it. More like a week, then you’ll never look back. The benefit of being between the wheels rather than hanging off the back let’s you weight the wheels properly and ride way faster. Once you figure out the balance I’d argue that a longer bike is actually more maneuverable because you can weight and unweight the wheels and charge way harder with way more margin for error. The biggest benefits are actually in tech, anything works well on a smooth flow trail. But if you want to ride little bikes there are tons out there still, norco sight in a small comes to mind as one of many. But at your height that would be like skiing powder on skinny skis from 1996

GeoMetron Teases 140mm S1 Trail Bike With Up To 570mm Reach
Same height as you. 465 reach on a process x medium. Steep loose fast trails in BC. It’s an absolute weapon. Took some getting used to but I’d never consider 417 reach again. Old bikes were way too small. Don’t be afraid of numbers, try new stuff and take the time to get used to it.

Pinkbike Poll: Is It Ever OK to Pressure Wash Your Bike?
It’s really not that hard to pull your pivots apart , clean and grease and replace the occasional pivot bearing when needed. With relatively cheap tools it’s usually a 1-2 beer job. if riding in the mud or washing your bike a lot, you’re gonna be taking it apart and fixing shit more. Not like a few pivot bearings needing replacing or a fork needing a lower leg service means it’s wrecked, just means it’s being ridden.

Opinion: How Many Batteries Does a Mountain Bike Really Need?
I’m not usually one to shit on new technology, but I gotta say, fuck this electronic shit. They are fixing something that isn’t broken. I’ll do all I can to avoid AXS, I’ve tried it, it worked well, but not incredibly better than a well setup X01 kit. I also got to watch a buddy miss a ride recently because his freaking battery wasn’t charged. He felt like an idiot and we laughed and went riding. And who the hell wants a $400 or whatever derailleur?? And live valve suspension? 99% of riders done have any clue how to set up their regular suspension and probably don’t know that it’s even set up poorly. Are they really gonna notice live valve? I have a hard enough time keeping my fork and shock serviced and operating well, I ride a lot. Making them more complicated is not the answer. I like riding bikes because they are simple. I can fix virtually anything in a pinch with a small toolkit and a box of old spare parts. That’s one of the best attributes compared my other toys like dirt bikes and snowmobiles. Adding unnecessary electronics like axs and live valve etc is fucking stupid. And I bet pretty soon we won’t be able to get a high end bike without it.
