Photo Epic: Women's Heli-Drop With Miranda Miller
Exactly. I'm always wondering how you can be a mountain biker, love & respect nature and take an Heli for your little pleasure and pollute like hell... Deserve your mountain, climb it or leave it...

Media Days Randoms I: Paul Finally Finds a Bike That's Too Big - Eurobike Media Days
@RLEnglish: Are you really serious about getting a bikepark bike which will probably cost you more than 1000$ just for your kid to go to school ? Trust me, you'd better buy a cheap, light and reliable BMX... Your kid will have much more fun and he will learn good basics at riding even by just playing. PS : I'm still waiting for a brave man to ride a 80lb bike to the top of a hill. I you a beer or two at the top !

Media Days Randoms I: Paul Finally Finds a Bike That's Too Big - Eurobike Media Days
Thxs to all for your comments but none of you really answered my main question : "Would you even consider having fun riding a 80lb bike ?" But I guess, I got my reply with the lsat 36lb enduro bike tested that everyone bashed (Commencal 29" to name it). So, I'm not sure to understand that for us such a bike is not an option, but when this is our a kid which is 2-3 times less than, this is enough... I miss something here. This bike will probably cost around 1500 bucks and except if you live close to a bikepark, your kid will probably never climb a small mountain, not even a small hill with it. For downhill, this bike won't help him neither to learn anything. Too heavy. At that price, I'd better buy a high end hardtail like a vpace, trailcarft or a custom early rider or whatever, we are lucky to have so many good options now. You put "enduro" on something, and everyone get crazy about it.Maybe you guys hope your kid will be a king at bikepark, this dreamy bikepark where you go once a year... I'm sad to see always the same cliché about kid's bikes. "They are just kids, they can ride shit." Our kids deserve better than this. To go in the street or if they are not really interested, sure they can ride a shit bike. But if they have fun in the mountain, if they have to climb their hill, what about offering them a proper bike ? Then, just a few more questions for you : how much do you ride your bike ? How much did you pay for your bike ? How long do you keep your bike ? Then ask yourself the same questions for your kid ? This is not just a question of weight ratio... They are plenty of excellent & not that expensive options for kids at 500-600$ bucks, so when I see silly bikes like this kona one, that makes me crazy...

Would you even consider having fun riding a 80lb bike ? Kona did it for your kids. 33lb Bike for your 50-60lb kid. Kona, go back to school, stop your F&ç&/%* marketing and make real bikes for kids....

Video: Fat & Sandy at the Seaside
Fat Bike is not only for snow / sand / mud... When I'm tired riding my regular trail bike in summer time, I go for a ride on my Fat. Different fun, different lines... you just rediscover your trails in a different way which is great. Never get bored ! Btw, great vid, really motivating to have a different perspective on future vacations... ;-)

Yeti's New SB100 Doesn't Fit The Mold - First Look
@YouHadMeAtDrugs: "I haven't ridden a yeti", I'm just trolling... 3 years we have a SB5c and 2 years a SB5 at home and they both pedal like a dream too... without changing anything.

Yeti SB5 Turq - Review
Exactly what I was thinking... Adding spacer everywhere and wondering why the bike is so harsh.

Yeti SB5 Turq - Review
"I'd argue that the reach is not long enough for a rider of that stature". Maybe you should learn how to set a saddle (see the first pic) before to review a bike...
