It always make me laugh that if you have an opinion on this website that isn't 'Wow this new product is amazing,thank you bike industry' you get down voted! Instead of been a load of fan boys take note of peoples valid opinions instead of down voting them. Thank you to the others guys who have shown support for my first comment.

Good News on Hope Tech’s HB.211 Trail Bike and Carbon Handlebar - Core Bike Show 2017
Hope for me has always been about beautiful machined aluminium components. It's a shame they have gone down the black clothy gluey stuff.

I really don't see the point in a flat pedal with a clip inside it. Once your foot is in the clip it doesn't move. Surely having pins around the clip will actually make it more different to get back in the pedal if you do unclip.

1 Question - What's Keeping the Gearbox Down?
If it's one thing that bikes are so behind the times on its their gears. The basic principle hasn't changed for decades. The gearbox bike needs to be the future and we'll know manufacturers need to start creating them to appeal to the masses.

SRAM Eagle Drivetrain - Review
@TheRaven: I have ridden update shimano thank you. I've also had shimano slx and xt brakes and had nothing but trouble with them. The XT brakes rattled like hell and i had to modify the pads with some rubber to stop the noise. They also had lack lustre power. My son had shimano on his bike and his gears were forever going out of sync. I was trail side with some friends the other week and one complained about his shimano brakes and said every time he invests in shimano he comes away disappointed. Each to their own but I would never swap my sram for shimano.

Shimano XT Di2 Drivetrain - First Ride
This will not be any better than my sram 1x11. There is absolutely no point in this drive train.
