First Look: Yeti SB4.5C - Eurobike 2015
No FD mount. I called up Yeti, asking if it were maybe like on the SB6c, just well hidden, but they confirmed that it's 1x only.

Steel X-Sync Rings from SRAM for Under $20
Relatively soft steels are also typically used in the stamping process, so don't be surprised if the durability isn't really much better than a 7075-T6 or T651 ring. Would be at least better than untempered 7075...

If you think this is for you, then you just admitted to fitting their profiling. Considering they only made it in 28-32t, they must think that those interested in a cheap chainring can't push a larger gear.

MUST WATCH: Brandon Semenuk - Utah Overshoot
I have a feeling that people will be coming to get blessed by this man, cause he is like Jesus on two wheels.

Prototype Saracen Carbon Myst - Val di Sole World Cup DH
No rubber molding for the fork bumper, downtube, chainstay, no decals, no paint/finish, no headbadge, different/questionable cable routing... besides the front triangle and linkages, the cable anchor point on the linkage and the rear brake line going into the swingarm are new.

First Ride: 2016 Trek Top Fuel
I was looking to add another bike that was at least 9k to the list, but this one barely missed it. Shame.

First Ride: Cannondale Habit Carbon 1
When you brake, the rear has the tendency to get unweighted, as weight shifts forward. A single pivot combats this more with higher squat, but typically not enough to fully counter it. A horst link has far less squat and allows far more forward weight shift, netting more extension under braking. A typical rear susp with an air spring is stiff-soft-stiff, so this keeps you in the stiffer portion of travel that requires more force per mm of travel, on top of more force to counter the force that is extending the susp. A bike that counters this weight shift full keeps the bike more stable/level. Requiring less force to compress the shock, such as in the softer mid-stroke portion of the travel, should not feel stiffer. Some of the few bikes out there that nearly fully counters the the forward weight shift are the Yeti SB5c/SB6c and Orbea Occam TR. One of the bikes that is worst at countering it is the Liteville 301 MK 10, which your review contradicts and I highly question the veracity of. Low squat makes it easy to do Euro Switchback flicks, since the rear is so unweighted under braking.

Thanks for keeping it real and celebrating achievements and other stuff that help define the culture of mtb.

Michelin - Enduro World Series Round 6 Fantasy Contest
It's also funny that "Pinkbike Staff" thinks that we'll have a 1 in 10 chance "on" winning, because there's 10 sets of tires available. Jared Graves Tracy Moseley

Are we Misapplying Light Hands-Heavy Feet to MTB?
LMAO, wrong place to post James. More than half the audience here doesn't do more than skim the write up and just look for pics, charts, illustration, and read captions, headlines, and the bottom line.
