Nino Schurter's World Championship Winning, 17.8-Pound Scott Scale - Sea Otter 2014
@Barkit, wouldn't sending an MTB that was built to be as light as possible into a gnarly rock garden at speed be even more dangerous than sending a road bike down a road? It is a safety issue in both cases.

Photo Recap: Pietermaritzburg XC World Cup
What are you guys afraid of? That in lycra there will be a bulge visible? Or is it that there will be no bulge visible?

Nino Schurter's World Championship Winning, 17.8-Pound Scott Scale - Sea Otter 2014
I find it weird that there is a minimum weight for road but not MTB. We know guys are running three bolts on their rotors and running road rims on their 29ers and use super light components that are prone to spontaneous destruction, though luckily nothing as stupid as drilling lightening holes in their seat posts etc. that we used to see in the nineties. I'd hate to see a serious injury be the impetus for the UCI stepping in and imposing a weight limit.

Press Release: Giant Says 27.5 Glory is on the Way to Production
these are always Giant's prototype colours. production bikes will not look like this. I have been told that for 2015 the graphics are going to be something else, new team or something.

First Look: Hayes Radar Disc Brakes - Sea Otter 2014
I like that micro adjust feature - a helluva lot! It'd be so easy to just tune it by ear - gets noisier, twist it the other way. Nice.

Hard to tell when they all sound the same - like R2D2 being raped by Chewbacca.

First Look: Polygon Collosus N9
I don't mind it at all. And if you are wanting something that doesn't look like a Trek/Specilized/Kona/Giant, this could be the bike for you. It looks to be influenced by modern fighter aircraft.
