Pinkbike Poll: Can Today's Mid-Travel Trail Bike Be Significantly Improved?
And while you are at it, how about corresponding riding gloves sold with the dropper post that will shock your hands every time you touch your seat to condition you to keep from pulling up on your dropper post and damaging it when it is in the descend position.

@metaam: I haven't but look forward to it. Hopefully Zeroed keeps improving the idea.

Faces of Mountain Creek Bike Park
My only complaint is that they have no respect for the climbers there. https://youtu.be/5mpo3eOy6Bg

e*thirteen TRS+ Cassette - Review
@metaam: I've generally has good luck with them but had x9 derailleurs blow out on me this year after a Zee blew up last year. Both for no apparent reason, honestly just riding along and one happened on a climb. That fact that a stick took out your drivetrain only highlights how unreliable and poorly designed traditional mountain bike drivetrains are. Virtually all the broken chains in DH racing are the result of the failed derailleurs system. BMX racers rarely have issues with their 1 speed drivetrain. This isn't even a debate, it's an indictment of the failure of both Shimano and SRAM, and these retarded extended cogs only make the crap more unreliable.

Pinkbike Poll: Can Today's Mid-Travel Trail Bike Be Significantly Improved?
As long as the military industrial complex is thriving new materials technologies will at least continue to evolve. Improvements in geometry drivetrain, and tires seem likely based upon what we've seen in the last 5 or 10 years alone. Motorcycles are quite a bit different in regards to the drivetrain and the weight of the bike, is that a fair comparison? Here is a scary proposition: Ebike evolution could get to the point where they look identical to regular bikes. But its quite possible that stable civilization could peak before mountain bike technology does and that will be the end of it all.

Waki-Leaks' Down-Duro Conversion Kit
Waki, your best idea yet, but I'm worried about how it might affect the front and rear wheel axle path balance.

First Look: Ellsworth Rogue Sixty - Press Camp 2016
Looks like a Fuji now instead of an erector set. Confabulations!

@m-t-g: That was a two speed system to compliment the unreliable rear derailleurs I am speaking of. As long as we have rear derailleurs a mountain bike drivetrain cannot be considered reliable. Nobody can debate that effectively.

Now THAT Was a Bike: 1996 Klein Mantra Pro
Great read. Got into the sport in the early 90's, wanted a Klein but probably good I never got one. Still bummed that Trek killed the brand. Legendary paint.

"bragged about all the rear travel it had, and subsequently tried to adapt it to the emerging freeride scene in our late teens." Thanks for the laugh.
