9Point8 Fall Line Dropper Post - Sea Otter 2015
My bike fits me and rides well. I only droo my reverb 100 mm most of the time. I am only 6ft1 though.

Vittoria's New Big Rubber - Sea Otter 2015
I think the morsa looks like a nice tyre. Would love to take one in the woods for a thrash.

Nukeproof Electron Evo Pedal - Review
I have these pedals. .. well my wife does now. They are poor at best. The grip... poor The feel under foot... poor they Will spin on you under pedalling especially over rough stuff which is annoying. That's the HONEST review of a purchaser. don't waste your money.

Intense Announces the M16
Intense have not made a top performing bike in many years. I just look at the number of riders (even last year) who were on intense. Their results slid... They are now on other bikes and their results are better again. .... wonder what that means?

I am sure a small company like specialized (half owned by Merida bikes) do not have a huge R&D budget or team. But a small team of higly specialized development engineers and a reasonable pipeline for development prototypes. Specialized only have 300 or so employees across all diciplines and administration etc. so are a small company. With a revenue of ~$500M, and a reasonable sponsorship program I would not imagine their profits are massive to reinvest. Medium companies tend to design the majority of their products in house and out source specialist functions for specific projects. They tend to have small R&D budgets for specific products also. Large companies or mass producers tend to outsource most of the lower level R&D to specific companies, world wide who specialise in the required diciplines and employee staff, principle engineers to manage projects (not as much fun as low level engineering). large companies buy smaller companies.... I have worked for all 3 sizes of company in my time as a development engineer. small companies are the most fun...

Euan. FYI. The pulse is terrible at carrying speed and pumping compared to the Old cheap budget scalp. But it is fast. But is wild with the rear end short.
