At $11k CAD I expect some flash. More or less perfection.

The possibilities are endless unless you want to customize sizing.

Derailleur vs Gearbox: Nicolai Ion 16 vs Ion GPI - Review
Remember that we agreed to take on a whole bunch of weight in suspension parts (and eventually dropper posts) because the improved performance was worth it. 4lbs seems like a lot but in a few years it'll be down to just 1-2. That drop test is compelling.

Let's Not Be A-Holes - Opinion
It's too expensive, at least more than a YT. It doesn't come in 26. 29ers are lame. Anything that doesn't exactly apply to the type of trails I have where I live sucks. Did I mention it's too expensive?

Pinkbike Poll: Convertible Full-Face Helmets - Yea or Nay?
Exactly. Everything seems like it's under control until you have a near-miss and you realize just how fast you're travelling over gnarly terrain with minimal protection. I'd like to up my face/head protection before I have an accident that makes me regret it.

Production Privée's Steel Full Suspension Frame: The Shan Nº5
I never understood single pivots until I bought an Evil. I don't experience any of the negative stuff I expected to. No weird drivetrain or brake stuff at all. Just good pedalling, good braking, good climbing, and remarkably better at these things than the six FSR bikes that came before. And I'm pretty picky about this stuff - if the Evil sucked I would have flipped it and returned to an Enduro. But I didn't. But a lot of the magic is in the placement and the linkages. So who knows? The simplicity of the Shan is appealing and kind of crosses over to my yearning for a hardtail.

2017 Norco Sight Carbon - First Look
@WAKIdesigns: So the taller rider, who is already even further back because of his higher seat, gets a slacker STA to ensure he's that much further behind the BB? Doesn't make a lot of sense. Yeah some of that is offset by the longer CS but the relationship with the BB gets weird. A full degree is inches fore-aft at full seat height.

Could someone explain why the STA gets slacker in the bigger sizes?

Pinkbike Poll: Which Major Component is the Least Evolved Part of a Mountain Bike?
Bikes right now are seriously amazing. They're tunable, light and awesome. But they're also super high performance, increasingly so every year. Now I find that I wear stuff out too often. I'd take an additional 50-100g per tire or cassette if it meant I didn't have to replace them so often. It feels wasteful. The only nuisance thing that continues to be an issue is tubeless. As long as I manage it every day it works great. It's the only thing on my bike that needs daily maintenance, which really isn't so bad. It's finicky at best. Procore seems like a bit of a step backwards. We have armour made out of gels that turn solid on impact. It's surprising that we don't have a better tire solution.
