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

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.

I built this sweet little rig up about 2 months ago and ridden less than 30 times. Bike weighs in at just 26 pounds, climbs surprisingly well, and is scary quick on the downs. Super solid build with some of the fanciest bits of kit available. Gotta get funds together for a photo trip overseas.

Pinkbike Poll: Why Do You Trail Build?
I build because cycling would not exist without trails. People talk about how you can only grow the sport through racing or tv, when in reality the sport would not exist without trails, and builders. It cannot grow without new trails to continue to excite riders. The same goes for tourism. Most people will visit a cycling destination once or twice and feel like they've ridden everything. If you build good new trails you'll get their attention, and might even lure them back for another visit.
