Kona Process 134 - Review
@rrolly: The 2016 A7.1 (Pike/GX drivetrain). Completely stock for now. It's pretty well specced, so I will probably only make some minor changes like a bigger front brake rotor, some nice pedals, maybe a shorter stem. Higher end tyres down the line (NNs are ok, but it has the performance version instead of the evo), but only after the current ones start to wear. These are just tweaks though. TBH the bike is ready to rip straight off the shop floor. The base carbon one was similarly priced, but had some spec compromises. The bright red C7.2 looked amazing in real life, but too expensive for me ;) Which one do you have? Any changes you found particularly good?

Kona Process 134 - Review
@rrolly: I know what you mean. Just got a sight (the new one has 150 up front, so slightly more aggressive) and loving it. Bang for buck as well as all round versatility seems awesome after the first couple rides.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Remember Your First 'Real' Mountain Bike?
Rode some mtb-shaped objects in the 90's until 2001 when I was 16 and got my brand spanking new rigid steel Kona Hahanna in rare black paint. I think I was more stoked about that bike than anything before or after. It was shocking how much better it was then the shitty bike before it. I rode it for years, changing pretty much every part. Still have the frame and 'Project 2' rigid fork, would make for a nice retro build.

Qualification Results - Cairns DH World Cup 2016
Great stuff, looks like the OZ guys may mix it up at the top. Also awesome to see Smithl and Hart back in form.

Shimano Launches New 11-Speed SLX Groupset and XT Goes Di2
Not sure about the ugliness (eye of the beholder and such...), but I definitely agree about 11sp Zee. Current Zee is such an unnoticeable (read: good) piece of kit for the price and looks nice too.

Fox Metah Helmet - First Look
@stiingya: I don't know - to me, including just one person involved in the development of MIPS in the team examining various helmets with and without it is a rather obvious thing to do. After all, who would be a better advisor on what the claims are and what they are based on? They are fully transparent about it and I think you would agree there is a difference between one person's conflict of interest and the whole study being sponsored by the manufacturer. The test does not sugarcoat MIPS in any way and shows clearly when it does absolutely nothing as well as how small the differences are when it even works. It also shows how much of a compromise between bulk, practicality and protection our styrofoam pisspots are in general. I did say before that I fully agree a test with hair and a scalp would be great, I just imagine it would be so hard to keep it consistent. As for proposing their own standard for examining rotational forces, I guess they had to do that if nothing had existed before, no? Otherwise they would just have had to scrap the whole idea and wait for someone else to come up with a standard. Someone had to be first. Of course I agree the more researchers validate or negate that standard, the better. For now, this is what we have and it seems quite legit (unlike the way Fox tries to spin their non-adjustable visor on this new helmet here, for example). Cheers
