FOX Factory Series Float 34 - Review
basically they are all so paranoid about what each other are doing that they end up copying each other for fear of being left behind and so end up making the same fork, so stop being a spanner about it it means more competition and keeps companies from being able to just put prices where they like them

Trickstuff Cleg 4 Disc Brake - Review
no way id pull my xtr brakes iff my bike and replace it with that,,, they dont look very good for a "handmade" product and to be frank at that sort of price thats the only strike they need, why buy something ugly when we have a market full of good looking kit that works every bit as well, but to be fair the new xtr trail brakes make me think there is no point in saint, they will throw you over the bar with little lever effort from the rider and thats with a 180 rotor, nevermind a 200

Ask Pinkbike: Can Tires Be Too Wide? Should I Be Using All My Shock Stroke? Is 140 Millimeters Enough Travel for Enduro?
there is no substitute for bike skill, if you can ride a bike well you will do well pretty much regardless of what you ride, 160 may be seen as being perfect for enduro but that doesn't mean it is the only thing that will do, 140 is definitely enough even if most people prefer to run more

First Look: Giant's New Carbon Glory 27.5
it is not the carbon that goes soft it is the resin it uses, the resin absorbs water over time and so becomes heavier and softer, this is basically how carbon fatiuges and cannot be avoided but can be reduced by storing dry and putting a propper coat of paint on it, two things that do not happen as often as they should, however this happens at the same sort of rate as alu fatigue, but faster in applications where water emmersion happens, so hockey is quite a nasty enviroment for carbon sticks hence replacement frequency

First Look: Giant's New Carbon Glory 27.5
seeing as giant state their advanced frames as a t-600 carbon fibre fibre it will be a carbon frame and not a cheapy composite it is also worth mentioning that their anthem has a 200g weight difference between its alu and carbon siblings.. roughly the same as seen here with the glory

First Look: Giant's New Carbon Glory 27.5
also just noticed that this is another example of a company that produce a "carbon" bike with an alu rear triangle, claiming that there is not a justified weight increase and then bring it out with a carbon rear end in a year or two..... its just the big bike companies trying to get you to buy the same bike as many times as possible

First Look: Giant's New Carbon Glory 27.5
Giants Advanced carbon frames use t-600 grade carbon, which as seen here is not much different in weight to their alu frames, no doubt they will be releasing an "advanced sl" frame that uses a t-700 carbon instead meaning a lighter stiffer frame so that would no doubt make a bigger difference. of course there would be another cost increase Santa cruz do a simlar thing with the v10 carbon and the v10 carbon c
