One Question: Does Mountain Biking Need the UCI?
It's massively conflicting - from outside I'd argue I'd prefer no UCI involvement, but many of those involved in the sport are arguing for it. I don't know what I think, bar that I want them to leave the EWS alone...

Rocky Mountain Altitude Powerplay 70 - eMTB Review
I'm a little confused by the battery - when you say it cannot be removed is that true, or is it just a major job that involves removing the motor first for example? With the rate that battery capacity deteriorates over time I'd be a little concerned if it was the first. Also, how much is a replacement? I keep my bikes a long time and that could majorly destroy any resale value when that time comes... I'll be staying away from electric cars for a good few more years for the same reason.

Rémy Métailler Denied US Entry, Won't Be At Rampage
There is a sad irony here in that, in a world (yes - not just the US) calling for stricter border controls that such an overwhelming majority of people get upset at a country refusing someone entry... Remy I feel really sorry for you. To spend so much time working towards something to have it taken away sucks. I hope that it is sorted for next year and best of luck!

Humbled: Mike Levy vs Brendan Fairclough - Video
I like the reviews on Pinkbike (and elsewhere) as they give me a general overview of a product. The reviews here have also massively improved of late with the comparisons they make to other similar products, so credit where credit is due. However anyone looking to spend a lot of money on something really should be trialling it themselves first or at least looking at a number of sources to make sure it is right for them. No review is the 'ultimate' review as we all have different preferences and notice different things so I'm hoping that the reviews don't make you as upset as you come across... There is an attitude here that suggests that your (@meafroninja) opinion is more important than Mike's (or that he's wrong, etc.) when really it's just different. That attitude, which some have labeled as arrogance, doesn't shine the best light on you in my opinion and has clearly irked a number of people on here. In relation to PB's review team I am pleased they aren't World Cup level athletes as what suits someone at that level does not suit me. Taking an above average bike handler who lives surrounded by bikes is a pretty good qualification in my opinion, and more relevant to me. I suspect that they are faster than most... Whilst @meafroninja you are clearly very skilled on a bike, I worry that if you are looking to place yourself as a high skill level reviewer that the target audience you are looking for is only going to relate to a very small portion of the Mtb community in a crowded market. They are also likely to have already formed pretty strong opinions on what they do and don't like. This immediately strikes me as a difficult venture although I wish you all the best.

TRP G-Spec Quadiem Brake - Review
I get that other brakes may be better in one way or another than Shimano, but I can't justify the price difference. I can get a pair of xt's for similar to the price of one of these. I can't believe that they are twice as good...
