Specialized 2015: The Enduro Gets 27.5-Inch Wheels
People complain that the industry is forcing people to change wheel size etc. Now Specialized said that they don't want to change, but they have had to because the consumers have demanded it, and people complain about that too. Take it easy people, they are giving in to what the majority is asking for, and even though I like my 26", i like that specialized is saying "o.k. most of you want it, so we'll give it to you".

Brand New Reverb Stealth 31.6mm 420mm

$250 CAD
Brand new Reverb Stealth (Internal routing) 31.6mm 420mm I won it in a prize draw this weekend, but unfortunately I don't have internal routing capability on my bike, and my bike doesn't use this size post. Local pickup / drop off preferred. If someone gives the full asking price, I will make a $50 donation to NSMBA in your name. Note that I didn't get the box with the prize - so I don't have the bleed kit that it usually comes with, but it is unused.

First Ride: Roval Traverse Fattie Wheels - Super Wide and Super Fast
The whole not a specialized product is the biggest cop-out ever. It just means that when something goes wrong, they can pretend it's someone else's fault. I broke a spoke on my Roval Traverse in December 2013 - still waiting for a replacement. (Thankfully Lynn Valley bikes has a spoke cutting machine, it means I have an odd spoke, but it works). Specialized Canada really needs to get their parts distribution together, I won't be buying another specialized bike unless they sort it out (which makes me sad, because I love riding them, just hate their service).

First Ride: Roval Traverse Fattie Wheels - Super Wide and Super Fast
I speak english as a first language, and I didn't get it until I said it out loud once. I agree that a clear standard would be nice, UST is good if you know what that means, but just having Tubeless ready written somewhere would be very clear for all us idiots.

Anybody retail these in Vancouver / Squamish / Whistler? I like to try on armor before I buy.

"Unknown riders" deserve credit too - come on pinkbike, you have a badge number and a race list.

2013 Red Bull Rampage: Impressions
To summarize the riders, what this competition needs is: 1. More time to build and practice 2. More prize money 3. A better way to deal with weather delays 4. Some support for the builders 1. I don't see why this is a problem. People talk about local advantage, but how about 2 weeks instead of 3 days? I think all the riders would happily spend 2 weeks down there. 2. This comp received some large coverage this year, and I think networks, sponsors etc have a decent amount to lose if people lose interest.It shouldn't be too difficult to drum up some more cash, especially from Red Bulls deep pockets. There is talk of having more of this style of competition which provides opportunity for efficiencies, better marketing etc. 3. This one is a bit of an issue. The only thing I can think of is to have the comp on a Saturday, and make Sunday a reserve day. If you are allowing more build and practice time prior to the event, then having it on a Saturday shouldn't be a problem. 4. I dunno about this one. In pretty much every sport, the competitor takes care of his/her own support crew. It is not up to the organizers to take care of them. Any other useful suggestions?
