You Don't Need to Learn on a Hardtail - Opinion
I think a hardtail is a good way to learn. Teaches you about line choice and being light on the bike as you can't just plow and expect the suspension to do the work. Also teaches you about pumping better than a full susser. At the end of the day it's horse for courses when it comes to full susser vs hardtail, but everyone should learn to ride on flats before moving to clips. End of story.

Trek Remedy 9.9 RSL - Review
@WAKIdesigns: Preach WAKI! Trek are the Apple of the bike world. 'innovating' for no other reason than to try and sell more bikes. And by innovating I mean making products with built in obsolescence that are no better that the ones before.

Bird Aeris XL Frame and shock - Excellent condition

$675 GBP
Hello, My Bird Aeris XL Frame and shock are for sale. The Frame is in excellent condition and has been helitaped since new. No dents or cracks. It has a few paint chips, some dirt under the helitape and some scuff marks, but other than that is Superb. I have taken the chainstay protector off so you can see the state of the chainstay in one of the pictures. The shock is a Monarch RT3 debonair and has had a custom tune from Loco tuning. The tune has made the shock even more supple in the first 3rd of the travel, while still giving mid stroke support and ramping up at the end. At the moment the shock has no volume spacers in it, but can be tweaked by adding a few if you'd like it more progressive. The shock is absolutely mint, and has pretty much just been run in. No scratches or marks on the stanchion or shock body at all. Please note, only the frame, shock and maxel are for sale, all the other bits are not included. I estimate the frame has covered between 50-75 miles, as I damaged my back (herniated disk) shortly after purchasing it and it has sat unridden for one and a half years. Rather than letting it sit, I thought someone else might as well enjoy it, as I'm not sure when I will be able to ride again. Bird include a lifetime transferrable warranty so the person who purchases the frame will have the warranty transferred to them. Postage within the Uk only. Buyer pays paypal fees or bank transfer. I estimate the shipping to be around £20, but we can work this out if you'd like to use you own courier. (If it's any more I'll add it on, any less and I'll subtract it) £675 ONO Any questions please ask. Cheers.

2017 Kona Hei Hei Trail - First Ride
@mikekazimer: Find me a review where you have flat out said something sucks......... I doubt you will find much. Even the stuff that is bad is sugar coated as per the examples you cited. By all means protest that you write fair balance unbiased reviews, but judging by a lot of the comments the readers (and myself) don't think you do. It's alright, we understand you can't or are afraid to bite the hand that feeds you ;) You want to know what an interesting review looks like? Go and watch Top gear and Jeremey Clarkson. Ok it might be over the top and somewhat silly, but no sugar coating whatsoever.

2017 Kona Hei Hei Trail - First Ride
Pink bike reviews are pretty much advertorials now. Almost never say anything bad about the products and sugar coat everything they say. I tend to look at the comments to see a more honest appraisal of the bike. $5000? how much? Bloody boost, sod off. Enve wheels? Maybe I can sell one of my children. Much more realistic for the average buyer :P
