The Essential Guide to Red Bull Joyride 2018
It's weird but for me, personally, I can't get excited about slopestyle events because the maneuvers are so far outside of my skill set that it almost seems fake to me. Testament to how good these guys are, but I just can't get into it. It's kinda like an porno where... you know what? Never mind.

Finished: The Froriders Ask Us Anything
Back when you guys were coming up, action sports, so to speak, as a whole were a huge phenomenon. Do you think we've tapered off in terms of the general public getting stoked on extreme sports? Dave Mirra, Tony Hawk, and you guys really helped drive extreme sports into the mainstream. If you think it has tapered off a bit, why do you think that is? I know this is potentially more of a US-specific topic, but would love to get your thoughts!

Gwin's Not Racing MSA, But He is Training on a 29" YT Tues
FWIW, In my very limited experience, the folks who learned on clipless pedals tend to have very poor bike control overall when they get on flats, or just in general. Inability to bunny hop, shift weight appropriately, etc. Could just be that the few people I know who fall under this category are lousy riders in general, but I found it interesting. I think they both have their place in MTB. Pick what ya like and go rip. But maybe don't learn on clipless?

Kona Announces All New 2019 Kona Big Honzo
Initially I got excited - $2400 for a steel hardtail, that's perfect! Scrolled down, saw the Revelation, Guide Ts (seriously?) and NX suspension and immediately scrolled down to the comments. Why even bother with this build? Put some better brakes, GX, and a Pike, and I'll consider this bike - hell, I'll even spend a bit more for it.

@juicebanger: Dude forget an escort. This bike costs more than I paid for my wife. (Kidding, keyboard warriors, take it easy)

Development Story: Cannondale's Wild New Single-Sided, Single-Crown XC Fork
Yes! Can’t wait til I get to watch more cross country NARPS try and send it over the rollers and blow out their fork and rocket launch a tree. It’s like Christmas has come early! Thank you cannondale!! (Or whoever made this garbage because tbh I didn’t read this nonsense)

First Ride: Pivot's New Trail 429
Remember that time I could run my DH wheelset on my trail bike? Yeah, that time is right now, and that time is stupid. Seriously, Ron STAAAHP With the damn spacing bologna! Or at least prove that it makes for a better riding experience! Because honestly, if the only reason you did this was to let the weirdo who rides 2x with plus tires (and definitely wears lycra and a full face) have his cake and eat it too, I'm throwing in the towel.

What Are Your MTB Pet Peeves? - Opinion
@Muckal: Totally agree. Saw a young lass getting pretty much dragged down a trail in Pennsylvania last year. Some concerned walkers turned to me and were like, "what do we do?" Uh... you try and stop a 3000lb pissed off animal, folks. Good luck." The bike under my ass doesn't have a brain, but a horse does, and it seems that I'm the one always getting yelled at for going too fast. And the real bitch of it - the horse groups have the $, so they get the preferential treatment. I've resorted to throwing plastic bags of dog poop at them when they trot by, left on the side of the trial by my dog walking compadres.
