CORE Bike 2015 - Randoms
Not a big fan of the bright colored clothing either. I could understand for arid areas but to my experience, anything not full black is usually totally ruined after a single mud riding day. On the other hand, those DMR pedals seem to be great value for the price.

Bell Super 2R Helmet - Review
It seems like insecure people always have to turn it into a cock measuring contest. People have a hard time grasping the concept that things aren't always better or worse, sometimes its just different.

Mondraker Foxy Carbon XR - Review
"I still cringe when I look at photos of the CTD remote cables". The key point of going from 2x10 to 1x10 is to simplify the riding experience and reduce the clutter. It probably appeals to some and thats cool but as far as I am concerned, adding remotes defeats the purpose. I'm fine with a reverb remote because it is an accessory you will actively manage but lockout and CTD? Really? Maybe it is just my area that doesn't warrant it but it seems like a solution looking for a problem.

Radon Slide Carbon 9.0 - Review
I have a Demo 8 for downhill purpose and honestly, unless I'm riding the gnarliest of the gnar around here, I find my 145mm dixon with a 160mm F36 up front outperforming the demo on just about any trail. it's 10pounds lighter so more flickable, accelerates insanely faster, better suspension support overall. I used to love my Demo 8 to death and now I feel like it's nothing but a heavy and slow cow compared to my smaller rig and the lil bike can take just about anything I've thrown at it so far. Like waki said on some other thread, if people were honest with their skill level and the trails they ride, most of them would pick smaller bikes. Which brings us to the Radon. It's 160mm. At that size, it better be a damn good descender because no amount of good climbing will save it as there are plenty of smaller bikes that do incredibly well on the downs while being also great at the ups and plenty of 160mm bikes already that descend extremely well.

I don't really get the purpose of this bike. Surely, if you're going to go for a 160mm, it's because you'll be focusing on the downhill sections and good climbing would be just a bonus... so why make a 160mm that does so so on the downs but climbs well? If that's what I was looking for I'd buy a 120mm-140mm ish bike. I found the spesh enduro sluggish on the way up but nearly DH like on the downs and I can't fault it for that because that's what it was meant for. If I rode a 160mm that didn't do all that great on the downs, I'd be very disappointed even if it climbed way beyond all expectations. Kudos to them for doing a 160mm that climbs great though, if they can tweak its downhill performance, it could be the beast a lot of riders are looking for. Also, that paint color/texture and the frame itself looks amazing. Extra 3 for the pricing too. P.S. If it climbs so well, why not go for a single chainring???

Ask Pinkbike: Correct Shock Length, Tubeless for Gravity, A-Line Paralysis Tips, and Keeping the Bits Out of Your Goggles
I keep my goggles on the helmet in the "riding position" between runs, shake the possible dirt off before a run, ensure that the fit is perfect... and no matter how much I try to have it dirt free, there is always the occasional bit of dirt that gets in there. So I stop (after it got into my eyeball of course) shake the dirt off, resume run... and still manage to get dirt in there. The guy who solves this issue deserves the physics nobel prize.
