Win a K√ľat Pivot Rack - Pinkbike's Advent Calendar Giveaway
I'd use it ~ it's a PIA to bang my shins on the damn rack sometimes and getting things loaded up, swinging the rack out of the way so I can park my butt and drink a bear would indeed be handy.

8 Tips and Tricks for Wet Weather Riding
Couple other tips... get a pump up garden sprayer & mod the end (you can cut it down to about 4") and use it to spray off your bike and your gear before you stow it for the drive home. They also make a great mobile shower for dry camping. I'm a VW Westfalia guy and we use these for all kinds of things. antibacterial baby wipes / flushable wipes for de-funking as you change out of your gear into the drive to home stuff Here in the Pacific Northwest things turn to slop pretty quickly and there's not much worse than a nasty drive home after an awesome day of riding.

Have Your Say on the Ever-Changing Bike Standards
My gripe with it all is that as a consumer we buy what's in front of us and usually at a premium & when some unseen entity decides that this "standard" we just bought is not the right thing they depricate it and we are left with a piece of gear that has not shelf life or support really. I'm riding a 2012 Yeti SB66 (built at the very end of 2012 coming into 2013), I bought it in Feb of 2014 thinking I had a new bike ~ alas ~ I didn't and it wasn't but a few months after that the whole 27.5" wheel shift occured. I love my bike and having ridden several 27.5" bikes in a variety of conditions am not subtle enough to decern any real difference worth ditching a $4K bike to follow such fickle trending ~ a lot like catching lighning in a jar is seems. The bike industry is worse than the IT industry as there isn't an ISO or or ITIL etc. to frame any of this into a reasonable platform to promote the evolution your talking about; it's just the Paul Turners of the world doing their thing and we are stuck with that decision until the next epiphony arrives and off we go again.

Yamaha to Launch Their Own eMTB Lineup
Further, there's been a fair amount of talk about this allowing disabled riders to get into the woods. Who's going to retrieve them out of cell service range when the damn thing dies and they're stuck?

Yamaha to Launch Their Own eMTB Lineup
@YamahaBicycles: "The more that mountain bikers can unify, the better opportunity we have to create a meaningful message to governing bodies." ~ I will never ... as in ever be partnered with the eBike community. It's apples and oranges... this is not a "mountan bike"and I for one don't want to ever see it on any of the trail networks I ride. I've a strong disdain for ebikes other than urban / commuting purposes and the last thing I want to see is some dimwit with deep pockets screwing up all the hard work my local trail builders put in (that they'd not be able to get to without help eg eAssist). It's bad enough having to deal with equine issues and those that are fit enough to get there and obtuse enough not to care about their actions. I've been an active weekly MTB rider since 1987 and if I can't get there under my own damn power I don't need to go there ~ earn your turns or support your local trail network through shuttle day fund raising events.
