Hope Tech Enduro - Pro 4 wheelset Review
@jaame: spot on comment. Spank is a great example of vertical integration; this is future for component and bike brands. with ease of global shipping, escrow payment services like PayPal, its viable for the brand/factory to sell direct to the dealer (who handles customer warranties) and cut out in country distribution. a step further, direct to the rider.... Giant is another great example of a manufacturer retailing their own products through, increasingly, their own "Giant Brand Stores" as well as good independent dealers.

Dear Bike Industry - Opinion
@tigerteeuwen: Giant is the largest bike manufacturing company and like apple sits on dollar reserve, these guys don't mess about, very robust business with long term planning. 4 year development cycle on frame model, shimano 's largest customer, responsible for many innovations in manufacturing and standards.

Ghost's H AMR X Adventure Bike - Crankworx Whistler 2016
coil shock makes sense for back country reliability - the damper might fail if you suffer an oil leak - but the spring will still support your weight and allow a slow return to civilisation. Had this happen (not with 100's of miles to ride) in Whistler Bike Park, coil shock damper failed (Manitou) but managed to slowly ride down the mountain :) When an air shock fails, the bike bottoms out and is unrideable, especially if loaded with bags. Had an air shock fail before and a long 10 mile walk out of the woods....not wishing to repeat!

@cunning-linguist: YES, the legendary Wades Cycles MBUK advertising campaign - ironically suggested by the female marketing manager at Future Publishing at the time....

The Ultimate Pumptrack Challenge presented by RockShox Preview
@patrickv155: yes, pump tracks should recirculate to allow continuous riding http://www.pinkbike.com/photo/5025412/ The Whistler race track still looks great but not technically a pump track
