Opinion: Why the Mountain Bike Industry Isn't Going To Listen To You
This article is so spot on! In my riding collective we have a slightly older more wealthy gent, every three months or so he’s buying the latest and greatest carbon this-that-or-the-other and been through more superbikes this year than I’ve had bikes my whole life, if he wasn’t such a giant bastard we’d all get a lot of hand-me-downs but other PB members benefit from him. I’m a new trail bike every 5 years or so rider, and other riding collectives are hucking upgraded early 00’s steeds. My point is we all have a place spending money differently in the bike industry and we are all needed in the great Circle-of-Shred.

Another happy headset owner. Had it fitted for a year, no creaks, no issues, no maintenance, no fuss. Great product. Would have had a n/w ring but 34t stock issues at the time meant i went with the competition. If the guys could prototype and release a 40t cassette adapter before Hope get theirs to market they'd make a killing. Important tax for the Wolf Tooth one is killer and One-Ups is a 42t so theres at a 40t is in a unique position. But not for long. Also, deraillieur hangers, lots of different types means complication (at least they are small for storage) but Pilo is a rip-off.

Orbea Rallon X-Team - Review
Who cares about free maintenance or an actual shop. 1. if your buying a bike like this and you dont know how to Wrench you don't deserve it. 2. a YT comes with a long frame warranty and 3. your $1500 dollars up, if something breaks just replace it and your still winning.

WAKi-leaks Installment 2: Sheman-Oh XTRoll
As much as this is delightful japery, the imaginary rides mechanical enabling forumites to blog etc is a painfully true observation. A perfect opportunity for socialising, enjoying the scenery and weather, and what happens, people stare at screens to spout bobbins at people they don't know. Like this comment for example. Sad but true.

Opinion: Is it Time to Revolt?
But if i do the suggested, and i would love too, how am i supposed to pay for the latest carbon, inverted, enduro, 10 thousand dollar car park trinket to rail berms 0.0001 seconds faster and pop jumps 0.0002mm higher. Everything about TV was spot on. Absolute bobbins the lot of it.

California Dreaming: DVO Test Sessions
Only one tiny comment on how the forks tracks. I'd love to see the torsional rigidity tested back to back with a non-inverted design. I cant see how it could possibly be as rigid as a traditional design.

To The Point - Staying Warm
Windproof base layers and jerseys, waterproof jackets, SealSkinz, overshoes, spare gloves etc etc etc - No two ways about it, you wanna stay warm, dry, with stoke levels high you need the right gear.
