Canadian XC National Championship
http://www.canadiancyclist.com/dailynews.php?id=31454&title=mtb-xc-championships-full-results-all-categories Emily Batty won the elite women national XC title...out of a field of 13.... the winning man won from a field of 26...its a sad sign of the state of XC racing in canada when our nationals only attract 1-2 dozen riders per category.

First Look: Intense ACV 27.5+ Trail Bike
that'd be a 26+ , not 27.5+... and those Nokians and Tioga Factory tires were not in any way comparable to modern tires other than widths.

First Look: Intense ACV 27.5+ Trail Bike
The companies going with 2.8s tend to be the ones who don't want to be caught short on this train, and didn't want to re-tool as much as they would have needed to for a design to clear 3.25s. Specialized fortunately, after being late to 29ers, and even further behind on 650B, are on the lead group for B+ bikes. Trek as well, and Rocky Mountain really was the first and even though they started with a 2.8 tire (because its all WTB had available) they had the good sense to design the first bike around even bigger rubber (3.25). I've got a Spec Fuse Comp and the first thing I changed was replacing the stock Spec 3.0 tires with some Vee Rubber Trax Fatty 3.25s and god was it an improvement. More rubber down, less weight and rolls sooo smoothly now. I believe Specialized designed the FSR 6Fatties to clear up to 3.5 in the frame.

2016 Megavalanche - Practice
If there was ever an event that a plus bike would be useful for....this would be it. Imagine the time you could be ahead on the start actually being able to ride the snow

@xeren: depends on the tire, but on i45 rims the Vee Rubber Trax Fatty 3.25s are exactly 29 inches in diameter. Most are slightly smaller diameter though.

Niner RIP 9 RDO and JET 9 RDO - First Ride
Niner's CVA.... aka the linkage design they ripped off from the Balfa 2-step... still I wonder if these frames have solved the company's repeated and chronic failure rates. There are dealers of this brand where virtually every one they sold failed or was recalled.

Topeak Ninja TC Road Bottle Cage - Review
@groghunter: No but it IS an example of Specialized claiming to have invented stuff they clearly didn't.

Topeak Ninja TC Road Bottle Cage - Review
@headshot: The Zee Cage II w/ tool is $60USD. A Joe Murray Combo Cage was originally about $15 but NOS examples today fetch about $25 each.

Topeak Ninja TC Road Bottle Cage - Review
@groghunter: yes but again...the idea is copied from mountain biking legend Joe Murray's Combo Cage design, which was sold thru Kona dealers 25 years ago. (something RC should know/remember since he was designing bikes and making frames at that same time - its not like he came to the bike world after the product existed)

Topeak Ninja TC Road Bottle Cage - Review
Topeak dusted off the old Joe Murray Combo cage design (from over 25 years ago) and just replaced the patch kit box with a larger sealed compartment. Watch though, specialized will probably sue them for daring to sell a product that intergrates water and tools together....
