First Look: Alchemist's Radical Carbon Wheels - Eurobike 2015
The AbsoluteBlack hubs share that aesthetic but also use magnets instead of a spring and 26 (36?) tooth star ratchet.

First Look: Yeti SB4.5C - Eurobike 2015
We'll need to see the geometry to really know for sure. I'm thinking this bike will be more in line with AM bikes than XC. Yeti already has the ASR-C (102mm XC 29er) which recently got a revamp. It makes sense that this new 29er be a burlier more AM style bike. 114mm travel on a slack 29er should be plenty of travel.

First Look: Yeti SB4.5C - Eurobike 2015
Can someone clarify this for me? Compared to a normal 142x12, Boost is a wider axle and and wider hub flanges. If you were willing to forego the wider flanges shouldn't it be possible to update a Hope 142x12 to fit a Boost bike?

First Look: Evil Insurgent - Eurobike 2015
XL Enduro 29er has a stack of 655mm on a 135mm head tube. XL Yeti SB6 is 635mm with a whopping 160mm head tube. XL Following is just 617mm on a 120mm head tube. That is a lot of spacers.

It's not just a shortage of reach that makes it hard to fit taller rider. It's a lack of stack. Nobody wants to spend $3k on a frame and then stick 3cm of spacers in there.

Factory Tour: Inside ENVE Composites
Carbon rims absolutely changed the ride of my Enduro 29. I'm a pretty finesse rider but I weigh 220lbs so stuff gets worked pretty hard and I was wearing out alloy rims. Carbon rims brought my bike to life.

SPOTTED: Prototype Evil - Crankworx Whistler 2015
All these comments and no one crying about 26" wheels yet. Here let me try: What?? Discontinuing the 26" version?? Everything is a conspiracy. Bikes are too expensive. Stop forcing me to upgrade to all this awesome new gear. Freeride4Lyf.

PINKBIKE POLL: Press-Fit Bottom brackets
Third season on a pressfit BB. Replaced once due to expired bearings, which isn't unreasonable. Zero creaks, zero maintenance issues.

First Ride: Rocky Mountain Maiden
So the name reference Iron Maiden but the bike is made out of carbon. And the promo edit doesn't have Iron Maiden in the soundtrack. Huh. That being said I love that they made it an all purpose big bike. That's way more in tune with how most people use their big bike anyway: a whole lot of park and shuttling.
