Pinkbike Poll: Mountain Biking - What Should it Cost?
Not to mention if you buy a toyota new it will cost much more than 10000, more like 20000 to 40000. You can also buy your bike used for less than 2000 and get something pretty decent.

Schwalbe 2015 Nobby Nic - Review
Totally agree worst treads ever, the only decent thing is their weight, going down anything steep is a death wish, they have zero braking traction and a flimsy squirmy casing. I guess they're ok if you're just rolling down a flat sidewalk.

Riding FOX's RAD Suspension
I agree things can go wrong with any fork, my personal experience with fox forks has been good as far as reliability goes. I did rebuild one of my talas cartridges from a 07 36, but I beat that fork, I even rode it on my winter bike for a couple years. As for rock shox I think they make good forks I just had bad experiences with some of them right from the get go, I really like the lyric it was stiff maybe even more than my 36, and I liked the mission control as well, it just all fell apart in the first month I owned it. Normally I would have taken it apart but it was under warranty so I didn't want to void that, and I really didn't want to be tearing apart a fork I just bought. When I brought it in for the third time the bike shop gave me the option of sending it in again or swapping it for something else so I got a 36 instead. The pike I had that leaked I rode that for a bit an then pulled it apart changed the o rings on the Motion control and air uturn cartridges and it was good for a year and was still good when I sold it.

Riding FOX's RAD Suspension
Did you ever hear about the reliability issues that the lyric and totem had? My lyric literally fell apart within the first month, lost all it's travel, lost all the detents on the low speed compression dial, then the entire mission control nob seized. I replaced it with a 36 I still have today, I don't hate rockshox I had an older pike that was awesome, I liked it so much I bought a second, but that one was a dud leaked from day one. Rock shox is known for using a lot of plastic internals, the entire motion control cartridges were 80%plastic they are not as well built as fox, forks, even if you don't like CTD you can't deny the quality of fox internals. I've owned quite a few rock shox forks and quite a few fox forks, I never had a fox fall apart like my rockshox forks did.

Opinion: Incremental Steps and Boring Times
I think 650b is the reason for one of the most boring years for product innovation, this is not hate for 650 b and I don't want to debate which wheel size is better but, after looking at the hundredth bike with new "wheels" it gets pretty boring. Personally I would like to see more innovation in the dropper seat post category, there is a lot of room for improvement and it seems that nobody has any good new designs or improvements for the old ones. Also somebody needs to make a usd fork that actually is torsionally rigid, so far x fusion's revel solves the torsional rigidity issues, but good luck getting one of those. There is a lot of room for product improvement it just seems that no one is focusing on it. Also it would be nice if someone made a wide range ten speed cassette.

What Tyler Found at Indoors - Interbike 2014
The 5.7 does use fuel but it has 380hp while silverado has 355, also the toyota tacoma crew cab has a very efficient 4.0, and you can still get it with a 6 spd manual, I currently have a trd tacoma crew cab and it is an excellent truck no matter where it's made, it has good torque and gets great fuel economy.

What Tyler Found at Indoors - Interbike 2014
Yup you're right my bad, still good trucks in my opinion, however from what I've read engine production is split between North America and Japan.

I thought so too but if you look closely it looks like what appears to be linkage is actually the leaf spring.

What Tyler Found at Indoors - Interbike 2014
Toyota is made in Japan not America, and they are excellent trucks. Have you driven one?
