Update: Queenstown Dirt Jumps Saved from Demolition
@stubs179: I hear that he like to ride a bit so it's not a totally selfless act but still pretty damn awesome nonetheless. Not sure if he's into dirt jumping though, who knows.

Rod is a keen rider from what I hear. He's given a serious chunk of cash to help develop trails in at least one other place I know of, Makara Peak in Wellington. Well played sir.

Surly Launches Drop Bars Designed for Mountain Bikes
I don't think think that there is an advantage over either if you have both of them. What this does do is allow the gravel curious to convert an existing XC bike to drops, for limited financial investment. Drops give you a couple of big advantages over flat bars. The ability to switch up hand and body position on long rides and the ability to get more aero. On singletrack these benefits are negligible or personal preference but on more open terrain (where you can pedal at say 20km/h plus) they can be huge in time, effort and ultimately enjoyment.

New Helmets and Clothing From IXS - Pond Beaver 2021
I have a M/L Trigger AM with a 62cm head. Still some room leftover. Might be enough room depending upon how much larger your head is.

Pinkbike Poll: What's Your Ideal Handlebar Width?
I had 760 for a couple of years because that's what my bike at the time came with. They were ok. Got a new bike and went 780 because I started looking into it and determined that this was my "ideal" width based on the press-up test I read somewhere. That was better for me, kept my set-up like that for a few more years. Then recently got new bars. They came as 800 so I thought I'd leave them like that for a ride before the cutting guide I ordered arrived. What a revelation. 800 is fantastic for me. Up until I moved to 800 I always had my little fingers hanging off the ends of the bars. Man I smacked them on trees and stuff so many times. First couple of rides at 800 I brushed my bars against things once or twice but now that I'm used to it I don't. Bar width is one of those really personal things. So many factors play into it. I'm 5'11'' and have pretty broad shoulders which is probably a big reason I like wider bars.

Video: Shredding Gravel Bikes in the Snow
Hilarious how anti some people are to gravel. Reminds me of the conservative old roadies on CyclingTips. Same attitude, different discipline.

Opinion: eMTBs are Going to Change Mountain Bike Racing Forever
I’m fairly sure the point of this article is that money bike brands have previously spent on enduro racing, which is great fun and closest to how most of us ride (the participation sport) will/is migrating into Downhill Racing (the spectator sport). This is because your average prospective ebike buyer is much more likely to watch a few clips of full race runs in glorious RedBullovision of Danny Hart and friends tearing down a track at Mach chicken than they are of trying to figure out what is going on in an EWS highlights package. It’s not saying that ebikes “blasting” around stadiums is about to become the next big thing in MTB racing.
