Riding Bluto - Sea Otter 2014
Bowen, thanks for adding to the discussion. I have never heard the acronym O.L.D. so I cant make an informed reply. Can you dumb it down some for me? @mike levy, the farther those stanchions are apart, the more stress on the arch and axle. I'm just saying some of these might break at the arch if ridden with sustained zest.

Riding Bluto - Sea Otter 2014
I like the idea of this fork, but seriously? 15 mm axle? Ridiculous. Who wouldn't want the stiffness and breakage resistance of 20 mm? It's not like weight is an issue.. Bring on the who breaks an axle comments, but stiffer at the axle = less breakage other places.

Introducing the Bluto - RockShox's New Fat Bike Fork
20 mm would have made way more sense.

First Look: Polygon Collosus N9
Short chainstay bikes have more pop and are much easier to get in the air, so are much more fun. Long chainstays put more weight on the front wheel. It's simple physics, it's real, and it's very noticeable on the trail.

420 to 425 are short chainstays. 431 is an average chainstay length. Doesn't sound like much of a difference, but it makes a huge change in how a bike rides.

First Ride: RockShox RS-1 Fork – Carbon, Inverted, Expensive and for 29ers Only
I understand about the new tech being exciting, and I ride dh, xc (6x6x26), and a hardtail indoors. It just seems like PB has shifted it's focus and is now diluted to the point that there is less that would interest the group that made it bloom in the first place. I guess that is a natural shift in a commercial website, sliding to where the fat part of the market is. I'll adjust, but won't be spending as much time here. Props to you RC for reading the comments and staying in touch.

I miss the day when Pbike had a dh/freeride focus. This kind of stuff is totally irrelevant to me. I think my next click will be over to Sicklines.

Ibis' New Ultra Wide Carbon Rim Wheelsets
Nice rim design and concept. Make them in 26 with a 36 tooth star ratchet hub and I'll be interested.

Genuine Innovations Tubeless Ready Kit - Review
Why are there no schrader tubeless kits? Could somebody tell me what the advantage of presta valves are? Why not just use the schrader? I'd rather not have to protect my schrader adapters better than the family jewels. Up with schrader!
