Nice survivor! Love the wet look components. Reminds me of the Cannondale Black Lightning bike from the same period. Too bad its too big a frame for me too :-(

Awesome example of a bike from the period. So impressed there are fine examples of these still out there!

Best color scheme on a bike, any type, I've seen in 2016.

Fox's Featherweight 32 Step-Cast Fork - First Look
Perhaps its cheaper for me to loose weight by eating less than buying expensive lighter kit.

First Ride: SRAM's 12-Speed Eagle Drivetrain
Can't wait to see the road bike version of this 1X idea. 60 tooth crank ring?....so that way you can use bigger smallest rings on the cassette that do not wear out in only a few months of riding. I miss the pizza sized crank rings of early 90's 650c triathlon bikes.

Three Legged Dog of a Bike - Opinion
I had a 24X3 Le Toy bike and it was a lot of fun downhill. We had a trunk line (thick tree trunks across a trail) that required 16, 24-30 inch bunny hops at speed...we rode that section hundreds of times over two years. We had the breaths between hops timed out and burned in our brains. Can be done on a 26, but not as easy. Maybe we got bored, who knows...i suspect getting bikes with suspension changed the terrain we sought around 1998.

Will 2016 Be the Year of the 29er? - Opinion
2016 is the year the industry regroups, and drops the number of "standards." Surely diversity, disguised as innovation, is killing parts maker's margins? Finding NOS parts for vintage road racing bikes feels easier than finding parts to repair many modern mountain bikes. I see friends putting off new bike purchases as long as possible to try to avoid getting stuck with old rare tech.

Pinkbike Poll: What's Next?
Better tires please. So many advancements in wheel design, yet I still see what ever tires I run as the weak spot in my kit. They're just not that good compared to tires in other offroad sports. Other than than, a ban on press-fit bottom brackets would be nice.

Suburban Trail Assault on SoCal - Video
I found the mood sad on some level. I've lived in places that lacked elevation, it gets old real fast. You try to be like Danny Macaskill, or in my case at the time, Hans Rey, but you ain't, so the scene gets old fast. Bike is overbuilt too for the terrain. Kinda-like driving a tank over a soccer pitch, you can do it, but you could also make do with so much less. Sorry don't get why folks love this vid.

Why is this still unsold? I don't get it. It is awesome...
