2017 Pinkbike Awards - Component of the Year Nominees
I think a lot of the people who complain about not needing a 50t, or e13 cassette haven't been on rides longer than 3 hours. Or haven't been on a bike for days and days and days on end. Truth is, while you don't always need that gear, it sure is nice when you have nothing left to give and still have miles to go. There were several times while bike packing across the Middle East fully loaded with camera gear, camping supplies, food, and water, that I would have given just about anything to have something a little more than the 42t I was pushing. You can stick to your 1x10, I'll take my extra gears

Pinkbike Content Submission Guide
@kurisuchan: Exactly! I wouldn't mind publishing some of my work here, but why do that when places like Eskapee, or Bike Packing, or other websites are actually willing to pay for good content and aren't just living off user generated BS?

Öhlins Debuts New Trail/Enduro Forks
It is. Just wasn't listed in the specs for some reason.

Öhlins Debuts New Trail/Enduro Forks
I have this fork. It's fucking amazing. By far the best feeling piece of suspension I've ever ridden. Can't wait to get one of their rear shocks on my bike. I'll probably never ride Fox/Rock Shox again.

Counterpoint: Do We Really Need E-Bikes?
"The best way to help mountain biking grow? Take the R&D money being dumped into electric motors and spend it on getting more kids on bikes." This. Every public school should have a fleet of strider style kick bikes. Getting kids on bikes is the absolute best way to grow the sport. Get them hooked early and you have a life long customer and bicycle enthusiast.

Let's Not Be A-Holes - Opinion
I may have used to think that was an entirely absurd gear combo.. however after a month of bike packing in Oman in the Al Hajar mountains with fully loaded bikes, 4 days of food, and 14 liters of water (which was never enough), I would have given just about anything for a 50t cog and a 28t chain ring. A quote from one of my favorite songs that seems to put the whole cycling world in perspective: "It depends on what you look at, obviously, but even more it depends on the way you see." - Bruce Cockburn

Maxxis Recon 27x2.8

$100 USD
I have a pair of brand new Maxxis Recon+ 27.5x2.8 tires that I brought as backups for a bike packing trip. Tires are brand new, still zip ties together, never mounted. Asking $100 USD each, they retail for about $140 each. Would prefer to deal locally if possible.

Pinkbike Poll - How Many Days Did You Ride in 2016?
Damn straight. Love the overlap between the rivers and trails.

Pinkbike Poll - How Much Dropper Post Travel Do You Prefer?
A 125 reverb slammed is perfect for my pedaling height on most frames. Unfortunately since the redesign and subsequent offering of only two post lengths, I have to remove the connectamajig and direct wire the post with old style barb and fittings. Even with that, I usually end up with a severe bend in the hydraulic line that over time makes the lever feel like garbage. I'm pretty much 5'7, and comfortably ride medium bikes, but lately rigging up my dropper has turned into a little bit of an undertaking.
