I actually like the natural lighting. It sets the mood.

Pinkbike Awards: Innovation of the Year
If you subtract the fact that overall, the canyon is most certainly a better bike, and look at just the adjusting geometry part, the magic link is a better method to change the leverage curve. No manual switch is involved; rather the terrain, braking, and chain tension control the position of the shock. The magic link is essentially automatic. It also isn't just on/off, it floats between the two extremes. Also, comparing an old rusty spring to konas several offerings is insulting to them. But back to my main point: even if this works well, it isn't innovative. Bionicon, Scott (and now Cannondale), and even Trek (with their talas on the rear shock of their Liquid bikes) have made travel adjust rear shocks that worked. Yes, they required proprietary rear shocks, but Konas approach didn't. If the Manitou Mattoc introduced travel adjust next year it no doubt would be a good product, but not worthy of "Innovation of the Year"

ITS JUST A KONA MAGIC LINK ON A BIKE WITH BETTER GEOMETRY! Not innovative, in fact its a step down from the magic link because you need yet another cable coming off your handlebars.

Its an upside down Kona Magic Link with yet another control cable and better geometry. Not innovative.

Roval Traverse SL Fattie Wheelset - Review
Can you give any feedback about the light-b rims? They are still under $400 (USD) for a pair w/o hubs.

Pinkbike Awards: Downhill Bike of the Year
The real answer here the cost of developing and manufacturing mountain bikes. Who in the industry is a millionaire? Is there not competition? The $10k price tag is a measure of how much human effort it takes to develop, test, and construct a bike worth of the Rat. Santa Cruz doesn't make much off the v10s. Same will all the other top-tier bikes out there. The direct to consumer brands (like YT and Fezzari, etc) are newcomers and have not spent untold amounts of money on R&D over the last few decades. They were able to take existing technologies and manufacturing processes to make their bikes. They do save a ton of money by doing direct to consumers, but lets face it every bike company can't do that, and it would be bad for the mtb industry and community if every single bike company switched over to that model. Are bikes expensive? Yes. The real question is are they worth it.
