I like bikes. A LOT. Especially when I ride them.

Raxter Tarsus Hitch Rack - Review
I don't get it... you're willing to invest thousands into an awesome mountain bike, but not a couple hundred bucks to make it easy to haul around? Whatever floats your boat I guess, but a good rack is well worth the $$$.

Specialized S-Works Enduro 29 - Reviewed
"its aluminum rear end measures just 430mm" I don't give a damn what reason they may have had for using aluminum instead of carbon... if I'm spending almost 10k on a bike, it better be a FULL carbon bike. I understand there may be no impact on stiffness, or it's just as light as carbon... I don't care. A 9k+ carbon bike still has an aluminum rear end? I don't get it.

FOX's New 36 RC2 - Sea Otter 2014
You have to transport you bike IN your vehicle? So you can afford a super nice mountain bike, but not a $100 dollar rack to put on your car?? Sounds like it would make more sense to just get a rack for your car, rather than limit your options buying a fork because you can't take the front wheel off *as* quickly.

First Look: 2015 Shimano XTR – Eleven Speed Cassette - Choose Your Drivetrain
After dealing with the horrible disappointment of the "X01" drivetrain not actually being in any way "affordable", I was left thinking I'll be on Shimano for a while. My hope was that they would bring back the "mega-range" cassette somehow to get people into a 1x drivetrain for less than buying the entire SRAM system, but STILL insisting on 2x with a front mech? A lot of bikes now don't even have the ability to run a front mech. Looks like I'll still be twiddling my thumbs until SRAM finally releases a truly "affordable" 1x drivetrain (as in under $1,000) because I'm not going to dish out a couple grand for another 2x drivetrain, regardless of how awesome it's engineered.

Holy shit, that article/video actually explains what the hell this product is actually for! Thanks airsoftesneeto. Now it makes sense (even if this article did an absolutely horrendous job of explaining what the hell the fuss is about, or even include photos of the crucial feature) That is a FANTASTIC idea, I will be looking for the vest-thing at my local shop for sure. Dare I say it?... this SWAT gear is super enduro.

Introducing the Bluto - RockShox's New Fat Bike Fork
Sam-rodda, they are probably just using that lever because it will be much easier to operate with the giant caribou-skin eskimo- mittens that riders will probably be wearing when they are out riding their fat bike.

I think if you switch to 5W-30 for the colder weather you should be good to go :P

Wait, I can't figure this out. It just looks like XC riding gear. Is the big "innovation" here that they have incorporated pockets into lycra riding gear? Out of everything I read talking about "hating to wear a pack", the only thing I'm reading that explains why you wouldn't have to wear a pack with this stuff is because of a back pocket on the vest thing (like every other XC jersey out there) and a zippered pocket on the lycra shorts. Is that it, or am did I miss a crucial piece of info here? A couple pockets doesn't seem like a replacement for a pack, except on short rides.
