2016 Pinkbike Awards - Mountain Bike of the Year Nominees
I say Pivot just because they choose an axel dimension that already existed, 157mm. I just can´t understand why the industry had to "invent" a new dimension when there was a good one already.

Whyte G-160 RS - Review
I couldn't disagree more. Geometry has little to do if you are a pro or weekend rider. In my opinion it has instead EVERYTHING to do with your body composition (short/long legs vs short/long torso) and riding style. I would call my self a weekend rider and the long and slack (so called pro geometry) just feels great and I would never get back to short reach, under 470mm. For me the bike feels more agile that way. Before I couldn't find any balance on the bike, either to far front or to much on the back which made it hard cornering. With the longer reach it just feels right and I can take turns harder.

The Little Trail Hunter - Video
Love the video! One thing that struck me is that bikes for kids are more and more "kids friendly" but look at those huge grips! They are the same size as on adult bikes. The kid has a hard time gripping them. Never thought of it until now. Specialized, you need to do them smaller ;)

High Voltage: The Inside Line on Electronic Shifting and Suspension
@WAKIdesigns: No WAKi of course not. I´m comparing it with the first RS´s, Manitous`s and Zochis. They felt like pogo stick because they had elastomer inside (to keep the weight down, duh!). I´m comparing it with the first disc brakes. Remember those? Sorry buy they were not that great :) They worked good when it was dry but when it was wet they were not much better then cantilever brakes. And they needed constant bleeding. A few years down the line these products are great. Electric gears shifting just feels great and give you a better shifting experience. Was the gain/feeling justifying the price a few years ago? No, not for me at least. But now when price are dropping it´s starts to be justifiable. And In 5-10 years I bet you we´ll all ask our selfs how the hell we could shift with wires :) PS And guys, remember you do not NEED 99.9% of the shit you own ;) Specially not a bike. You WANT it because you want to have fun :)
