@plyawn: ...."not many cyclists riding with traffic at those speeds" ....have you ever been to London? It can be insane there sometimes.

Banshee Spitfire - Review
So was I Waki.... luckily I waited to get hold of a large in Japan 3 years ago. If ever you have the chance to come over here for a holiday, drop me a line and you can take it out for a spin. Best bike I have ever bought for the riding we all usually end up doing, and I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up being the best one I ever buy.

RockShox's New Super Deluxe Shock - First Ride
"Currently, there are eighty-two different hardware sizes to contend with, but the new metric standard uses only eighteen." Err, well, from RS' production perspective maybe, however to me and my need to service my old legacy DHX4, Vivid Coil, CCDB and their corresponding hardware bits and pieces, it seems more like this; "Currently, there are eighty-two different hardware sizes to contend with, but with the eighteen new hardware sizes of the metric standard, this will increase to one hundred"

e.thirteen Introduces TRS Tires and Wheels
@tiagomano: "There is no sufficient demand". You would be right there. "Why?" I hear you cry. Because the millions upon millions of owners of 26" wheelsets (that still outweigh the number of non 26" owners in all likelyhood given the decades in which 26" was the main or only option) will probably not be basing their purchase decisions on the fact the logos match up. How I wish I could have been a fly on the wall at the product development meeting where the bright young spark who came up with the idea of the rim tyre logo combination!! I bet they got extra cookies.

Opinion: The Courage to Create
Spot on. I thought, after reading the Bontrager Spring Collection adpiece, how sorry i feel for the PC staff writers. Apparently we were glad to welcome one Vernon Felton to PB. Genuine question, not a dig Vernon, but how does it feel to have to put your name to that stuff? At least at Dirt magazine when it used to be printed.... on paper...the content was the content andvthe ads were the ads; and yes, I used to read the ads and firgive them for bring ads; you knew what they were. That is no longer true as the internet, snd thise who deliver its content, tread an increasingly thin line between enlightening us and pulling the wool over our collective eyes and wallets. I feel sorry for my daughter's generation who may have to fight to get the net back; it has been highjacked by SNS lurking branded bullshit. Give me back my printed copy of Dirt magazine, where ads were ads and content was genuinely journalistic content all the time, you, you, abomination... The bloody internet.

Bontrager Launches 2016 Spring Collection
"Bontrager launches Spring Collection" Am i missing something here... I mean... Jesus, if ever there was a nail in the coffin of why i just cannot be arsed with anything other than taking my bike and riding into the sunset until the internet explodes into a distant memory from where the world of fashion and bikes morphed into nothing more than a vacuous attempt to create desire, then this phrase is it.
