Too bad Peaty won't actually be at Sea Otter for the premiere because of the first round of the World Cup.

Pinkbike Poll: If Cost Were No Object...
@ PedroVieira Steve (owner/designer of SWD) was a big admirer of Orange's design and it definitely shows in the 216. I'm not a huge fan of the color either (though it's unique). This was a factory team frame/color and only a few were built for the race team in late 2007/early 2008 just before Steve passed away....kinda seems wrong to paint it until I really have too.

Pinkbike Poll: If Cost Were No Object...
@NickBit I ride an SWD Racing. They were a small DH frame maker here in Northern California until 2008 when the owner sadly passed away. His bikes will live on forever though. I ride a 216dh and my wife rides a Crazy 8. Incredible bikes that have a great racing legacy as well. Here's mine:

Pretty sure he is clipped in... Mallets with Fiveten Minnaars. But his foot IS coming off...

Pinkbike Poll: If Cost Were No Object...
I know I'm in a massive minority, but having ridden a steel DH bike for years, I'm a huge fan of the material. It dampens vibrations, is quiet, tough, repairable, and easily workable by the small scale builder in his garage. As nice as all the wonder materials are, there is something really special about the way you can relate to good ol' chromoly.

Opinion: Why the Mountain Bike Industry Isn't Going To Listen To You
Good article, but I disagree with the title and the statement, "So, if you're not in that group of people who are buying new bikes at somewhere near the original retail price, you're not who they are making those bikes for." This is patently untrue. Professional racers (who arguably most of cycling's innovations are made for) pay nowhere near retail for their bikes, nor do the huge mass of riders who slave away in shops to buy their bikes and parts at employee prices... But... it makes no difference to the manufacturers because they are still making their full net profit when they sell at wholesale. Retail pricing only effects the retailer and the profits/expenses of the shop. If Santa Cruz sells a bike to a bike shop that resells it for retail or to a shop employee at cost, it makes no difference to them. So, it is all customers that shape what manufacturers produce, not just "affluent, older riders".

First Ride - SRAM Debuts DH Specific 7 Speed Drivetrain
The remark stating that a Canfield would need the longer cage option to handle the chain growth of it's rearward axle path is incorrect...The Jedi uses an idler pulley to handle this growth so there is virtually no movement of the derailleur cage during suspension movement.
