BRMBA is Raffling a Bike in Support of the Blackrock Trails
If you've had a chance to ride this park or work with the folks at Santiam Bike, both are awesome. I've been a customer of theirs for over 20 years and ridden Black Rock for about 12 yrs.

Staff Rides: Mike Kazimer's Coil Shock Trek Fuel EX
Nice bike, I've been wondering though... Why don't they just do a 27.5" front and a 29" rear "nullet" and manual over everything? (I'll just go now... )

Silly question maybe, has anyone actually seen an Atherton bike in the wild?

Bike Check: Josh Lewis' SCOR 4060ST With 27.5" Wheels
@nickfranko: I've ridden both 27.5 and 29" bikes. I live near a couple of bike parks (Black Rock and Alsea Falls) and ride a variety of trails. Neither large wheel size provides enough of an arguement to spend several thousand dollars to change platforms. If I were to go up it would be 27.5" ~ the 29" wheels with decent sized tires are wagon wheels, and not at all fun for my style of riding (that and I'm short 5'7" - big wheels and a small frame, I'll pass).

Bike Check: Josh Lewis' SCOR 4060ST With 27.5" Wheels
It's been interesting to watch the wheel wars over the last few years. I'm an old guy, been riding MTBs regularly since 1987, and haven't bought into the industry dictating what works for me. I personally don't care what the latest greatest enduro / DH / free ride person is riding as it's pretty much a guarantee their gear is driven by their sponsor and they make it work (even if they don't like it). None of my bikes are "new" tech (my last MTB was an end of model year 2013 Yeti SB66 that I got for 1/2 price) and all are still 26" and I have as much, if not more fun now at nearly 61 yrs old riding as I did when I was 25 (I just don't send it hard anymore).

Pinkbike Poll: How Often Do You Ride Instead of Drive?
I live in Oregon, I'm literally 1.5hrs from any trail network and have to drive whether I want to or not. I will say, the drive is worth it being able to ride Black Rock, Alsea Falls, Post Canyon, Sandy Ridge, Mac and Dunn forests etc. - If I want to go 2 to 3 hrs, I get Oak Ridge and Bend too :)
