Nino Schurter's World Championship Winning, 17.8-Pound Scott Scale - Sea Otter 2014
I'm actually more surprised by his running 27.5 over 29 than the weight. Also, I hope skinwalls don't make a comeback.

Press Release: Giant Says 27.5 Glory is on the Way to Production
Take a great bike and add some solid refinements. Way smarter than reinventing the wheel again and again. Oh wait.

First Ride: RockShox RS-1 Fork – Carbon, Inverted, Expensive and for 29ers Only
Or how about: "We're trying something new by applying contemporary materials engineering and recent damper success from the Pike and applying them to an old design problem. It's going to be innovative and expensive and likely not for everyone. But it will teach us a lot about materials and design and will likely trickle down to other more affordable products." Presumably you will not buy any later products based on learnings from this experiment then?

First Ride: RockShox RS-1 Fork – Carbon, Inverted, Expensive and for 29ers Only
I didn't get the impression from the article that they say 'you need this for your bike'. It seems pretty well-understood that this is an innovative new product and it's expensive and intended for a limited audience. There's nothing extortionate about it. It's the latest greatest thing and you'll pay for it, just like anything else. Prefer more affordable but equally functional stuff? Then buy that. What's the big deal? This is an interesting engineering challenge that they've taken on. I don't have any need to spend $1800 on an XC fork but likely this technology will feed back to us on more affordable stuff eventually so I'm stoked that they're trying to push the boundaries. Not sure why anyone would complain about a company trying to innovate.

If this fork goes over well I could see them expanding the program to include more Trail/AM applications and those would require some kind of stanchion guards. I think this is a cool move forward.

FOX Unveils a New 36 RC2
A Fox RC2 36 29er fork in 150mm would be awesome. Just Float, no Talas. Yes. 2015 will be a good year to buy a new bike.

29(er) Questions: Mitch Ropelato
He's not riding them to prove a point. He's riding them because in this situation, on that bike, they're the right tool for the job.
