Pinkbike Poll: Have You Had Your Bike Stolen?
While I've not had my own bike stolen, I have had an issue with theft. I manage my university's bike rental and co-op service, and have a fleet of sh!tbikes we rent out to people for dirt cheap. Well, one person decided not to return their bike. Because we didn't have pictures of the bike, campus security refused to do anything about it, despite having the person's complete information, student number, picture of their ID, signed rental agreements, etc. As luck would have it, my randomly-assigned partner for my Spanish class lived in the same apartment as her, and I was able to get into their parking garage, and take the bike back. Wasn't locked or anything, just sitting in the parking garage. Easy recovery, I notified them that I'd had the bike returned to me, and they never responded. Fucko.

The Boba Fett helmet is badass, dude! But if that's not to your taste, there's a black and white storm trooper helmet too.

First Ride: Cannondale Habit Carbon 1
Bless your heart, @RichardCunningham. Mind if I borrow some of that when I get folks ranting at me about the price of bikes at the shop I work at?

First Look: 2016 Jamis Defcon
But not expensive for 1x11 XT, Saint brakes, and Loaded Precision wheels. People always overlook the wheels unless it says "ENVE" on the side.

@MrMentallo Because fancy suspension sells. They've said it themselves in their tech talks (which you can read on their site). The vpp system isn't a major improvement over others, but having it there is a HUGE selling point, even if, for 90% of riders, the suspension linkage doesn't make a huge impact. It's the same reason Buick's come with big engines "Oh it's the best car! It has the biggest engine!"

Devinci Spartan Carbon XP - Review
The issue with pressfit MTB and road bb's is the BB's isn't the fact that they're pressfit; BMX bikes have been using pressfit BB's for ages and those things are beat to shit and NEVER taken care of. The issue is the weight game and folks making the BB's themselves with too much plastic and crap. Praxis Works, RWC, and Wheels Manufacturing do 'em right and they're damn solid.

Devinci Spartan Carbon XP - Review
Weight is always less of a big deal than people think. The gram-cutting agenda has been pushed so long and so strong that people tend to assume that anything above 30 pounds is going to cause you to cramp up, get a hernia, throw out your back, and then die of exhaustion within 100 meters of going up a 5% grade. Yes, 35 pounds is a little heavy, but if the bike's geometry and suspension is sorted, and if the gearing is right, it's honestly not that big a deal. Yes, lighter is always nice, but there's always a sacrifice that comes with weight subtraction. This thing is built to be beat to hell, sent back to grab a pizza, and then beat back down again, and to do that, you need to add material. "Optimizing" only gets you so far. There's a bike for every roll, and this one's is to climb when it has to, and but mostly go -very- quickly downhill. The GT Sanction is in the same category. These kinds of bikes are the evolution of the "mini DH" 160 and 180mm bikes from a few years ago.
