Prototype Morpheus DH Bike - Crankworx Whistler 2015
"Strong, light, cheap. Pick two." Keith Bontrager Something seems odd about a 200mm travel DH bike that weighs 33.5lbs and costs 5k. The long term review of this bike will tell us if Bontrager is right.

Preview: Downieville Classic 2015
Downieville is a great place to ride, but it's the people in the town that make it a "must ride" spot. Marin County( CA) could learn a lot from the folks up there about how to treat mountain bikers. Hopefully I can make a second trip up there this year.

Now THAT Was a Bike: 1990 Mantis Valkyrie
Great article and bike too. RC continues to inspire and cultivate the sport and life style of mountain biking. Out of curiosity, had bar-ends been invented yet in 1990?

Oddities from the Pits - Nove Mesto World Cup XC
Don't let the bikes fool you, these racers would be really good on any type of mountain bike. I had never heard or seen the whole remove the brake rotor bolts idea before. I assumed they only switched all the Bolts to Ti bolts. I do like seeing all the innovation that these racers are trying out/ creating for their bikes.

Opinion - Thinkers, Tinkerers, and Inventors
I think Mike is giving the industry too Much credit. The switch to 27.5" happened at a trade show in Taiwan, 2012, and was done as a group to increase sales. There is no benefit to bigger wheels, other than fit for larger people. There was no inoovation: to quote Moschler from WTB " 26" has been taken off the menu." Press fit is a cheaper was to manufacture a product, again not innovation...but does increase profit. Boost sizes, + sizes bigger wheels and press fit BB'sare not To be confused with game changers like the dropper post: the industry never got rid of regular seat post. Full suspension, the industry never got rid of the rigid, hard tail, SS,etc... And finally, today's marketing gimmicks will never have the benefits or innovation that disc brakes brought to mountain bike world. You cannot compare something that saves you from crashing in wet weather or trails to something which now requires glue( PPBB) instead of threads, a wheel that is a 1/2" bigger or a new version of an old idea about oversize tires. I like the article, but I do not think that industry is as innocent as Mike would lead you to think they are. Is it really innovation when you have to remove a tire to true a carbon wheel? Or when you need to be really selective in choosing a Front ring because you only have one...?

Pinkbike Poll: Will You Consider Buying a 27.5+ Bike?
@boldfish, The Nomad is a really good bike. Don't let the industry fool you that newer is always better. Good bikes are good bikes, regardless of wheel size. As for all the new standards... The more I see of them, the less likely I am to buy any of them. I have decided instead to invest my money into having a great set of wheels custom built for my 26" bike.
