First Look: 2016 Jamis Defcon
Not long since 142x12 was hated and 135x9 was the standard. My point is, people adapt and soon 148x12 will be the accepted standard.

Opinion: A Secret Trail and an Argument Against E-Bikes
Very well put and I agree with the sentiment. I think however that it's a fate that we have to resign ourselves to that e-bikes will be everywhere in a few years and solutions have to be found that include them in trail access, otherwise all mtb'ers will have land access problems :(

Pit Stop: Enduro World Series Round 5 - Winter Park
Not too long, since it expired this year, right? That means they've been in the process of designing the bike for a while now.

The Rise of Enduro: Valloire, France with Joe Barnes and Ludo May
Enduro is racing. If you are not racing, you can't say that you are riding enduro. Practicing for enduro races might qualify, though. Where did this misunderstanding that enduro is anything but racing come from?

Extended Punishment - Enduro World Series, Round 3 - Valloire
Damien Oton is riding a Devinci Spartan = 27.5 Wildhaber rides a Trek Slash = 27.5 ACC rides an Ibis Mojo HDR, I think it's 26 Looks like Anneke Beerten is riding an Enduro 29er pretty even spread of wheel sizes, to be honest.

First Look: Shimano XTR Di2 Electric Shifting
I just keep shaking my head at that 22-40 lowest gear. Who needs that? Who is that for? But at least we have an explanation for the smaller range of the cassette in XTR - they wanted this one shifter concept REALLY BADLY for Di2. Good work Shimano, you now make a whole drivetrain system exclusively for dentists and doctors.

Riding FOX's New 36 - First Ride
What I don't understand is why they didn't have a QR axle in there. It's not a huge thing, but man would it suck not to have a multitool at the wrong time.

Opinion: Friends Don't Let Friends Ride E-Bikes
Mike, how are you going to "take a stand"? By shaming everyone you see on an e-bike? (except for that one grandmother). You think that will convince anyone? Do you really think this article convinced or shamed anyone? This is happening and in 5-10 years, it's going to be mostly accepted to have some sort of e-assist on a mountain bike. Yes, there are going to be trail access clashes and yes people will argue that these are nothing but small electric motocross bikes. But when that happens, all mountain bikers have to stand together, e-bikers and everyone else and fight together for trail access.
