Scott Launch 27.5" Plus Bikes
I can't see plus tires being good for anything aside from entry level riding. Too much bounce and squirm.

Bike is pretty much new! I built this bike for my brother, but it’s just too much bike for him so we have decided to change directions. Why did I build up a Range? Because I ride one myself and it is above and beyond the best bike I've had to date. Here are the details: *Size Large Range C 7.1 frame with Cane Creek DB air with Climb Switch. I have a suggested base tune for this shock from my personal bike that makes this thing ride like a DH bike, but pedal like a trail bike. This shock is the one to have on any bike. Very tunable, the best damping performance and reliability out there. The frame is a work of art as Norco has done a fantastic job on the overall design and aesthetics. Read the reviews for yourself, this bike can shread. I own one myself in an XL, and all I want to do is ride it every day. *Marzocchi 350 NCR Ti. This is a coil fork that weighs in the same category as similar air forks, but has none of the stiction or reliability limitations. It has a titanium spring that helps with weight, but has the plush feel Marzocchi coils are known for. The stantions have a new coating called expresso that is silky smooth and looks fantastic. This fork is very sensitive, yet very supportive. It also has a lockout for those long fire road grinds. *The Wheels: e.13 TRS+ hubs hand laced to Spank Trail295 tubeless rims with beadlock. These hubs have the large flanges so that you can use shorter spokes to create a stiffer wheel. The entire hub body is carbon! These are light and bling. The freehub has a very loud buzz reminiscent to King or I9 so you won’t need your bear bell to scare wildlife. The engagement is high at 72pts I believe. They have like new Maxxis High Roller 2's setup tubeless. *Rockshox reverb stealth post and WTB seat. Enough said. *Easton Havoc 35mm bar in electric orange. Stem is an Easton Havoc 35mm clamp, 50mm reach. This is the new oversized clamp standard increased to 35mm from 31.8. This allows manufacturers to make the bar and stem lighter, strong AND stiffer. *Brakes: Avid XO Trails with matchmaker clamps, so the shifter and reverb remote are integrated to the brake levers. Nice, simple and clean. The brakes have a fresh bleed. The levers are carbon on these babies! *Cranks: XX1 carbon cranks with 32T chaining. These cranks have a special layout such that you can change chain rings without removing the cranks. Great for varying fitness levels throughout the year. Or, you can opt for the direct mount option as the spider is removable. *Shimano XT Cassette and KMC Ti chain with gold race coating. Sram XO short cage rear derailleur with X9 matchmaker shifter. The derailleur is type-1 which I find shifts much smoother, and wont restrict suspension movement like a clutch arm would. As a short cage, there isn't much chain to manage anyways. *RaceFace Atlas Pedals. These things retail for $180 bucks! Because they are state of the art. (used on previous bike) *Troy Lee Designs Grips. Hang on brother! Bike is pretty much new, and is gorgeous in person. All the cables are internally routed through the carbon frame which is neat and clean looking as well as protected from the elements. This is the bike to suit your every trail destruction need. The only dirt on this bike is on the tires, as they were on another bike and have seen just a couple rides. Note: Price is listed in USD for the large volume of southern buyers. Asking is approx. $5700 Canadian. I don’t mind shipping if need be.

SRAM Announces New XO DH Hubs
Since I moved to DT, there's no looking back. Such a well designed freehub, and such low rolling resistance.

Pinkbike Poll: What is a Fair Price for a Mountain Bike?
i remember the early Rockshox and manitou forks that had 1.25 inches of travel still costed 1000 bucks. Bikes were always expensive. They are just getting way way better now. Innovation has a high cost of entry. Get over it and ride your 26er into the ground and enjoy the process.

Absolute Black Oval Chainring for Race Face Cinch Cranksets - Review
I've been running this ring for a few months. Worked better than I though. You don't feel any weird feedback which is what I expected. My derailluer arm does move a tiny bit.
