GT Bicycles 2016 - First Look
There's no actual specific colour designated as British racing green, it varies slightly from car to car and brand, but it is very similar... And since when is it bad luck? Cars have had great success in that livery!

Scott Launch 27.5" Plus Bikes
Tons of rolling resistance, poor acceleration due to the added weight so far away from the hub, and squirmy, inaccurate handling resulting in frequent stalling/stuffing up line choice.... The advantage? Lots of grip when you finally get to the top of a hill and are able to point it down... This bike will make amateurs slower, it literally has no benefits that can't be compensated for in some other way. I've introduced a few of my mates to mountain biking and got them to ride 29, 650 and 26" bikes.... They all preferred 26" or said there was no perceivable difference between 26 & 650, none of them liked 29" and found it slow and hard to manoeuvre... So these bikes aren't even in the best interests of beginners either.

Pinkbike Poll: What is a Fair Price for a Mountain Bike?
The issue is that every single part on a bike has a big stupid brand name plastered on it, too much marketing crap convincing people they need branded parts all over their bike, maybe shocks and cockpit should be branded, the rest should all be in-house produced (or brandless) just like with motorbikes

Schwalbe 27+ tires - Is this the new standard?
For a start 650b is not 27.5", its only about 3/4" bigger than 26" and feels almost unnoticeably different to 26", secondly, fat tyres weigh a sh!t ton and have massive rolling resistance. If you want to have a slow, heavy bike with tons of unsprung weight, poor acceleration and crap manoeuvrability which will likely result in you being knackered after climbing the first hill and then stacking on the downhill as you're too tired to lift the cumbersome front wheel over jumps/obstacles then choose 650b+ This new standard is ridden by almost no one and is pure marketing trash and its getting really tiring!

UCI Amends Rule on the Use of Onboard Cameras
Sorry @sino428, forgot where I was for a second - you're also not supposed to put decals on your helmet for the reason that the glue may react with the plastic shell and make it brittle/soft... But the idea of nuclear holocausts occuring and lethal go-pro-jectiles punching holes in spectators faces is a much more real concern... On that note, spectators should be allowed to have chains on their chainsaws in the crowd!
