Guerrilla Gravity Megatrail + Megatrail SS - Models Updated
@jgreermalkin: Good call. How did you know; are you able to tell the difference by eye, or did you just see the 170 on the build sheet or read their build kits on their website? I've studied the arches for a difference in vain.

That raw one with the destickered Pike... I like it very much. No flash, all muscle.

There's an extra line going to his shock. Lockout or what?

I'd like to point out that MRP just announced Ramp Control cartridges for the 34. Good timing, no?

2016 Pinkbike Awards - Innovation of the Year Winner
@SeaJay: I think the distinction is that carbon and aluminum take damage differently. I'm convinced of the strength and impact resistance of carbon; it also has the advantage of a virtually infinite fatigue life. Abrasion is where it's weak. A deep scratch in an aluminum tube is just a scratch, but if you grind through a couple layers of carbon fibers, the tube WILL break eventually. I figure aluminum makes the most sense for the average recreational (slow) rider. Aesthetics are aesthetics, and weight doesn't matter as much if you aren't racing..

Alutech Unveil the Sennes DH 29
@vinay: You can, but stiffness is compromised, and the stanchions are left bare.

2016 Pinkbike Awards - Innovation of the Year Winner
@T-Bot: Might be the most German bike company there is, and very well respected in that country. Boutique aluminum, DEAD serious engineering. They have lots of interesting ideas - they don't sell at Spesh volume because they don't market at Spesh volume, but they put all that energy into practical and robust design.

All About Unno - Most Interesting New Bike Brand in the World?
You kidding me? For my first four years of mountain biking, I rode an 80mm 26" hardtail that weighed more than that thing.

Shimano XT Di2 Drivetrain - First Ride
Should be possible now, with a bit of tinkering. Shimano makes generator front hubs if you're willing to add marginal friction.
