Is This The World's First 'Crowd Designed' Bike?
That's about two years ago, so long reach wasn't the hype at the time. One factor was that the crowd voted for somewhat extreme numbers concerning slack head angle which was super hip at the time: it became somthing like 64.5 and a very low BB. There was very little testing being done with prototypes, I think. The other thing was Carver who took ages to get the thing produced. They are a entry level brand with no real experience for real mountain bikes. Guess they wanted this project to enter the market and gain credibility. It basically became available when the hype was over again. Once done, they had made very few, didn't send them to the shops and the build quality was awful. This version 2.0 is a whole different thing. Alutech has made very good bikes before and now much more testing has been done.

Misalignments mostly what I remembered. What I read was that the geo seemed very progerssive but it didn't ride that well.

As the Bike's name ist ICB 2.0 it is the second project fo the German forum already. The first one i.e. ICB 1.0 didn't come out that well. It had a lot of production issues and did not meet the deadline. It was produced by Carver and not Alutech though.

Aaron Gwin and Specialized Part Ways - Here's Why
There are many quotes saying Gwin doesn't fit YT's line of thought: I hold the Good Times thing for a marketing slogan. nothing more. YT has been very clever at creating it's image of being the people's bike company. I nevertheless think their aim is to make money still and hence the slogan might change from Good Times to WC Winner Bike at any time.

Bike Check: Palmer Limited Edition Intense M16
Intense are trying too hard to run the Palmer show, a little less pathos would do. He's been a great rider many years ago but after long years of abusing himself, he's no longer that.
