Transition Bikes Announce Scout Carbon
Doesn't $3k frame only put it in the same ballpark as an Intense 275c? This looks nice, but I think I know where I'd take my money, even if Transition do seem a cool company...

Ibis Cycles Enduro Race Team at EWS Round Four, Italy
@tonggi: That's on the Ibis website. They say: "We think 6” of travel is right for most people's riding needs, we felt it struck the best balance for a climbable enduro style bike. With a longer travel bike comes the temptation to put 180mm forks on them, thus requiring heavier frame construction and moving the bike into a different category." On the coil shock front I'm pretty convinced that if PUSH couldn't sort a tune then there would be some form of overall penalty to running a coil. I imagine it would blow through it's travel (?) but I'm sure it can't be that simple...

Long Live the Kooks - Opinion
Also, we all need to realise that, to non-cyclists, we are all a bunch of weird ass losers so we might as well stop giving a shit and just enjoy ourselves... I have to be honest though in that I've rarely come across much in the way of issues out on the trail. One of the things that make me love Mtb so much is the attitude of other riders. New or old, posh bike or junk - is anyone that bothered? When i was new to the sport and had a mechanical someone stopped and offered help. I've no doubt the other guy thought something along the lines of kook but I'll never forget that. How many other sports are like that? I now make a point of doing the same.

@philstone: I was very much under the impression the warrantee would be voided like you say, but good to know about 170mm forks being an option. I'd be reluctant to go too crazy on it as I bought it for being a little less downhill monster than other similar travel bikes, but I may keep an eye out for a cheap second fork that can serve double duty as an uplift/main fork in for service backup...

As an Hd3 owner I'm interested in whether the 180mm fork worked out, and whether it voids any warrantee, and the coil shock. I know Push did some testing for the 11-6 on an Hd3 and couldn't find a tune that suited the frame, so have x-fusion done something magic here?

Organic Growth - By The Coastal Crew
It's kind of cool to see Evan get a bit of recognition - the guy obviously works super hard and it's good to know it's rewarded. There's a lot of stuff around where it's all 'no work, all play' vibes given out, but there's very few who can achieve a lifestyle like that (certainly for a long time). You may not be academic but if you find something you love and work hard at it you can go places. The Coastal Crew similarly have achieved all they have through hard work. Well done and thank you all!

Introducing 10-year-old Kenzie Nevard - Video
Doesn't he realise his bars need to be at least 800mm to ride downhill?!? On a more serious note the kids looking pretty good - all the best for your continued progression!

Troy Brosnan's and Jared Graves' Specialized S-Works Stumpjumpers - EWS Round 4, La Thuile, Italy
I've been on ghetto tubeless as long as I remember, but have always trimmed it right back to the tyre/rim interface. Any idea why Graves has left so much exposed? I can't really see how that would buffer against pinch flats unless he has practically rolled his the off the rim... Would it add sidewall protection, etc? Not that I'd do it of course, because it looks silly and my friends would laugh at me... ;-)

I'm pretty sure there was some sarcasm in Waki's comment... I thought it was kind of funny!
