Makken & Vinny T's Snowy POV - Video
[old guy]Utmost respect to these guys and I know they are riding trails they know, and most likely know the builders. Just out of curiosity... are we going to get to a respect building point soon, where these scandi-flick vids come with a little message saying: hey, don't do this unless...?[/old guy]

Flow Trail Overload? Or Never Enough Flow? - Pinkbike Poll
I am definitely older than most here on PB, so maybe my definition of technical differs a bit from what most people would think... the last time I was back home (Vancouver) we dropped in to a trail and I was told it was "technical." I really didn't find any technical challenge there, I mean sure some roots and steep bits, but nothing like the back in the day type stuff. Maybe it's because I've been riding on hiking trails in the alps, a lot of which are steep, rocky and nasty, or maybe it's because I always really liked the chunky stuff (and have never been a good jumper :/), who knows?, Anyway, my favourite thing to ride these days is most definitely tech->flow->tech->flow. There's really nothing better than cleaning a really ugly death-grip-steep-loose-bastard section, to be rewarded with a nice wide open rip where you can relax a bit before the next scary section. Flow trails are fun and have their place! My opinion is that they really have influenced what used to be the standard for a mountain bike trail. They've made them (the typical trails) a lot easier... very few obstacles in the way, and when there are, there's always a "fast line", and the goal is to be at the bottom first. Fair enough. I like going fast too, but some times it is nice to come to a screeching halt and look back at what you rode, saying to yourself: "how did I not just die?" Huh.. haven't blah-blahed that much on the internet in years..

@krispeuf: Yeah I haven't been out to the Woodlot in years... mostly due to living in another country. These trails really look like jacked up versions of Woodlot Gold and Crazy Carpenter (amongst other very Eagle-esque looking trails). Both were basically decommissioned the last time I rode out that way.

Ridden and Rated - Six Takes on the Multi-Tool
@foggnm: I have to agree with you here. While the One-Up in the steerer solution would be at the top of my list if I had the money to spend, I honestly can absolutely not justify the investment to replace something that I use on (way) less than 5% of my rides. My multitool spends most of it's time inside my backpack... that being said, in the well over 5 years since I've started using a torque wrench and threadlock compound on a regular basis, I can simply not recall the last time a screw came loose... (introspective moment begins..) now I'm questioning everything. Fuck, thanks a lot.
