Ridden and Rated - Five Trail Knee Guards
Will say this time and time again: Scott Grenade Pro II knee pads are my absolute favorite. I've been through several serious crashes and they've survived and stayed on without any slippage. Comfortable and no matter how rough the terrain or how hard I pedal they never bother me. Looks damn cool, solid protection, well designed and super comfortable.

Chasing Trail: Vedder Sucks, Tell Your Friends - Video
I feel like I should have waited and saved up more money to buy the Genius LT tuned model. Seeing the bike in action in a few of Scotts latest videos makes me drool. However, in hindsight if I did save up more $$$ it would have taken much longer to purchase and from what I understand those Tuned models are already sold out. Either that they are in frame sizes that are way too big for me. Happy I got my Genius 710 which is the next model below the tuned version. Still green with envy when I see these videos ????

Magura Vyron Wireless Dropper Post - First Ride
@texasflood: I wasn't trying to be condescending in the least. I also agree that they do price it according to the market value because they are in it to make a profit. These profits can sometimes help the company grow and do more future research and development. Or most of it can go into their already fat wallets. But this is business and how it works regardless of industry we're talking about. Eventually dropper posts will become more and more affordable but keep in mind if they continue to produce something better than the old they will always be priced more. (This rule doesn't apply to things made in China by the way) If my post came off harsh I do apologize I was just trying to make/explain my point.

2017 Scott Spark and Scale - First Look
It's not. My 2016 Scott Genius 710 looks exactly the same. The cables have never been damaged or caused any issues out on the trail.

2017 Scott Spark and Scale - First Look
"Though the new Scale still maintains the single pivot design, it's moved away from the top-link design of past iterations and now employs a rocker link with a pivotless swingarm. " Please change "Scale" to "Spark" since that's the bike with the suspension.

Magura Vyron Wireless Dropper Post - First Ride
@texasflood: Define "fair value" it's completely subjective. "Another mans trash is another mans treasure" Again, they may seem outrageous in price but you have to realize there's more to making a product than you think. It has to go through R&D and then has to be marketed and packaged. Not every company is making dropper posts the same way or with the same exact formula. These droppers may seem unfair to you but eventually they will lower in price. In fact there are cheaper dropper posts available to you now. Businesses are in it to make money. Profit is what keeps companies and their employees happy. Profit is also used to further improve upon existing products. No company goes into business in the mindset not to make some amount of profit. Unless they're a non-profit organization. The iPhone sells for $700 retail yet it only costs Apple close to $150 I believe to make. Why? to cover overhead costs, adverts etc etc etc. Oh and also to make money. So yeah, that dropper does costs less to manufacture in bulk. Try starting your own business and see if you can understand where they are coming from.

e*thirteen TRS+ Cassette - Review
People like you just don't get it. Back then most mountain bikes were using a triple ring drive train. So if you swap to a single chain ring upfront you do lose some of the gearing ratios. simple as that. Also, different trails offer up different terrain and situations. If you're so happy with your drive train config ride on but seriously there's a real reason, a valid reason why rear cassettes are going the direction they are going.
