First Ride: Tantrum Cycles Missing Link Suspension
I have a lot of steep out of the saddle climbs and are fairly smooth in my trail system, so a bike like this seems like a perfect. Just don't like the idea of replacing all those bearings.

First Look: Ellsworth Rogue Sixty - Press Camp 2016
It's crazy how fox has determined the paintjobs of so many bikes over the last few years. Haven't seen an Elsworth in real life for like 10 years, but these seem to be upping their game.

Did they mention a steel freehub? Nothing but steel freehubs, screw the weight unless you get paid to ride. .

Kona Honzo CR Trail DL - Review
@Christopop: sure, aggro hardtails can handle lots of stuff, but if things are really rough for long stretches I'd rather be on a full-squish as you start losing so much traction without it. To each is own in the name of fun, though.

Kona Honzo CR Trail DL - Review
@fabdemaere: The new ones look very interesting. I've got a Chromag Rootdown which is not worlds apart from a honzo and I love it. Very few features/trails in my part of Canada demand full suspension outside of little DH parks.

Kona Honzo CR Trail DL - Review
This review seems strangely passive aggressive. It's ok to just treat a hardtail like a regular bicycle and not an ugly cousin you find yourself strangely attracted to. There are dozens of nice hardtails out there that are anything but XC race bikes. Lots of guys on my trails are on/going back to hardtails. If you don't have lots of gnar or aren't hitting huge features you gotta ask yourself why you're squishin' around the back. Hardtails are a fun low-maintenance option which make smoother/flowier trails a blast.

@canuckcrawler: great attitude. I've got the girls on runbikes so fingers crossed they'll love it! I'm confident one will, but the other is even more risk averse than her dad!
