Specialized S-Works Enduro 29 - Reviewed
Bike prices are getting out of hand. Yes the technology is awesome. But my god. I can buy a KTM Freeride 350 which is arguably the pinnacle of moto trail bikes for the same price and do this .......

Yes ! Graves on top. I so hope he holds out on jumping on the 650b bandwagon and kills the whole series on a 26 !

650B Think Tank
I have been intrigued by 650b for years. It just makes sense. But what I find difficult to swallow is the the over night killing off of 26". How many riders own 26" right now. Tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands ? People that have invested thousands of dollars into products that suddenly have become obsolete. Not everyone can afford to buy a new bike every year or every 5 years for that matter. How much longer will the industry support high end 26" products ? Eg. Wheels, tires and forks. What happens to all the 26" bikes that no one wants, can't sell or buy parts for. How can I sell my 26" bike to anyone at this point to fund a new 27.5 when it is obvious that the likelyhood that 26" support will be gone in a couple of years. I think the industry jumped into this too quickly without thinking about the effects. Or maybe they know exactly what they are doing and are forcing hundreds of thousands of people to ditch their old bikes because they are faced with an industry that will no longer provide support for 26" products. I am not hating on wheel size at all. I will probably buy 27.5 in the future. Not like I have much choice anyway. But for many riders like myself that have invested $10k or more in the past 2 years on 26" bikes it's no wonder why this is a bitter pill to swallow. I just hope that the industry will continue to support 26" with top end products for at least another 5-10 years to help make the transition easier. But I have feeling they won't.

DT Swiss Spline ONE EX1501 Wheelset - Review
Affordable with monthly installments on your credit card. Many people purchase with CC and justify the purchase by having a small payment every month. $5000 over 5 years is a lot easier than $5000 cash today. I believe this is part to do with the escalating prices of bikes and parts, it's in the culture to buy things we can't afford on credit cards. Dont get me wrong. It's high tech. But damn. It's too expensive.

Finalists Announced for 2014 Bell Built Grants
Not only will it benefit the area. it's right off of I-5. Thousands of riders travel up and down the I-5 corridor to bike destinations. Prescott park just adds to Oregon being a mountain bike destination state. It's literally 15 minutes from the freeway. The city of Medford is also encouraging race events. it will become another race destination on the west coast and it will have legit tracks.

Finalists Announced for 2014 Bell Built Grants
The Prescott park trail system in Oregon is super rocky. The flow trails will definetly be uniquely built. The trail system will have a mix of a little bit of everything. XC to DH. Race events will will be part to the gig. The city of Medford wants to promote the park as a destination for riders and race events.
