The New YT Capra - Everything You Need to Know
@moroj82: That will get a guy started for sure but believe me they are not "all" based out of top of the world.

Opinion: Does Downhill Have Nowhere Else to Go?
I get what you're saying but skiing didn't progress in a vacuum. This thing called snowboarding came along which highly influenced the design of ski equipment and also the style of the tricks the freeskiers were doing. Skiers didn't use to "grab" their skis in the air, or hit rails, or ride halfpipes...etc. Still a great read and all but I could not resist.

50 Years of Riding a Bicycle – Video
That was one of the more inspiring videos I've seen on here. I'm 44 and I ride with guys all the way from late 20's to mid 50's. Once you're out on the trails together, age don't mean much as long as you have similar tastes for trails and similar stamina and fitness. I have had my ass handed to me by guys in their 50's both on climbs and descending super steep technical Laguna stuff. I enjoy getting humbled as it just gives me hope to keep riding at a pretty high level for another decade or two. Just a few weeks ago, I followed right behind a 53 y/o when he went for a big gap jump that I knew I could do but hadn't done it yet. It was very inspiring. I think I was more stoked for him than he was for himself. Mountain biking is an amazing sport and we are all lucky to be a part of it during this period of such massive technological improvements that allow us to keep on progressing.

Stan’s NoTubes Introduces Crest CB7 and Arch CB7 Rims and Wheelsets
I have some I9 Enduros from 2015 that are also 26 mm wide. I have done much experimentation and have noticed that 2.3" Maxxis tires are great with 26 mm width but the "wide trail" 2.4 and 2.5" tires change the profile and slow me way down. I have another set of wheels that are 30mm wide and 2.4 and 2.5 are great on those. Similarly, putting 2.3" tires on the 30mm wheels was also a disaster - it squared up the profile too much and it sucked for for cornering. Not sure what my point is other than I used to think when dealing with a few mm changes it would not be noticeable but it strongly affected my speed (confidence) on trails where you need to lean into turns hard to stay on the gas and I'm a little suspect of 26mm being the optimum width for "today's trail tires"

Pinkbike Poll - How Much Did You Spend on Your Bike?
Anyone who can complete the entire climb up to the Big Money trail in Fernie (the banner sign for this article) without stopping or dabbing might be an alien. That climb nearly breaks my will to live every year but the descent is so awesome I always come back for more. And even if a real live dentist on a $12K bike that I could never afford did it, he/she would be one of my heroes.

Pinkbike Poll - How Much Did You Spend on Your Bike?
@Biocoug1: right because smart people who devoted themselves to years of study obviously can't ride right? You are clueless. Judge someone's riding after you see them ride. BTW: I am neither a doctor, dentist, or lawyer.

'New' Bike Models Every Year - Does That Make Sense?
@TheRaven: 1 of 27 is crazy - if it was their only product they would be belly up. The drivetrain quality obviously makes up for the seatposts and brakes. I will say though that they have been awesome about replacing my reverbs and guides no questions asked. For me it's made me realize the value of buying a new discounted bike near the end of its run instead of used.

'New' Bike Models Every Year - Does That Make Sense?
@nug12182: wow that is crazy, I'd say you got really lucky. But, how much did you ride it in those 4 years and do you service it regularly? In the last 3 years I've had to warranty-replace 2 of them. Just this morning the damn thing got stuck down again (about 4 months of use since brand new this time) but I'm hoping it just needs a bleed.
