Transition Patrol Carbon 1 - Review
I don't race, but I love to go fast. I like how my Patrol was able to replace a Devinci Dixon and my TR250. More fun than a downhill bike on the way down and completely manageable on the way up. It's not all about racing. I want a bike that is capable of climbing but geared more toward downhill. A 5010 may be more fun for straight XC, but do you want to hit 30 foot gaps and 15 foot drops on it? The Patrol can ride XC in the morning, and hit anything in the bike park that afternoon. It's range of usability is the selling point for me. If I didn't have so many expensive action sports habits and a child; sure I would love to have a more XC oriented bike in addition to the Patrol, but I don't think I would ever buy a downhill bike again over an "Enduro" bike. "Enduro" bikes are just more fun now. Also, I have not ridden the Nomad but I have ridden the Reign. Completely different than the Patrol. Reign is waaaaay more DH oriented and terrible at going uphill seated due to the slack seat tube angle. Much more planted and less poppy than the Patrol. Not that one is better than the other, but very different. The Patrol is far from worthless to me. I love it.

Ibis Mojo SL small white

$1750 USD
2013 Ibis Mojo SL size small. Special Blend build with some upgrades including KS lev 125mm dropper post, larger Kenda Nevegal 2.35 tires, Easton Haven 700mm carbon bars, shorter Race Face Evolve 165mm Crankset, and Canfield Crampon Ultimate pedals. Full Carbon frame. This was my wife's bike. She is 5"1' and the bike fits her well but could also fit a rider up to 5"5'. Lightly ridden. Minor paint blemishes from normal wear and tear, but no deep scratches and definitely no cracks. No damage on the fork stanchions or shock shaft. Everything is 100% functional and ready to ride. Chain and Cassette are the originals and still in decent shape. Suspension is in great shape and feels mint. Dropper works flawlessly. I can swap out the 165 mm cranks on the bike for the original 175 mm Shimano SLX cranks that came on the bike if preferred. I can also include the original Specialized Ground Control 2.1 tires with 75% tread remaining too if my asking price is met. This is an awesome bike. Maintained meticulously by our LBS: The Hub Bikes in Jackson, WY. I've bought and sold many bikes on Ebay and Pinkbike. I'll drop $50 off the price if you don't want pedals included. No surprises here! Feel free to ask questions or make a reasonable offer. 5.2-5.3 pound (2400g) frame/swingarm/rear shock (medium size.

Is That A Five Inch Travel 29er - Video
Yes, you still have to use your own brain to make decisions on the products you buy, but there's nothing wrong with appreciating good marketing and using it to your advantage. This video clued me in to a new bike coming out that I didn't even know about. Turns out, the bike coming out is exactly what I've been waiting for: An Evil Following on steroids that can work as my "one bike". I wanted a Following, but bought a Patrol instead so I could still ride DH and XC. Now I can list my Patrol for sale and buy the Wreckoning in the spring (or the Canfield Riot).

29" wheels are too big to fit into a longer travel frame. To oversimplify what I mean: The rear tire would hit the seatpost/seattube at full travel unless the chain stay's were lengthened past the optimal 430mm or less number. It just doesn't work, or 29" DH bikes would already exist and be winning everything.

The bike in the video is most likely the new Evil Wreckoning. Rumored to have a 65 degree head angle and 6" of travel. Your comment is still valid, but this is closer to a 29" enduro with a more DH oriented geometry. I would bet it is longer and lower also (only problem with the 29" enduro is the high BB). It is not an XC bike like a Stumpjumper Evo.

@VwHarman; Great comment. Of course it's advertising! 90% of the video's on Pinkbike are advertising. You know which ones are not: The amateur videos that have no production value and suck to watch for anyone other than the people in them. People are so concerned with "not buying into the hype". Why? I watched this video, looked into the rumors of the new bike that Evil is releasing this month and now I want one. Embrace the marketing.

15-Minute Post-Ride Yoga Routine - Monthly Yoga with Abi
You're right Abi; not bad for pinkbike. There had to be 3 guys that made references to whacking off though still...

Don't rush to give all PB users undeserved credit. 99%of us are decent enough not to post stupid sexist comments, but scroll down to the bottom of the page and look at "below threshold threads are hidden" and you will find the immature members among us. There is no way an article get's posted with an attractive female involved that doesn't attract a few idiots...

October: Good Month or Bad Month?
I've broken my back riding for my own enjoyment. I didn't expect anyone else to pay for my recovery. Many people have had worse injuries falling off their front porch drunk. I do not see why everyone is so shocked someone got hurt at Rampage. No one had a gun to Paul's head telling him to go or die. He chose to drop in. RedBull has done so much for the exposure of the greatest sports on the planet, and hating on them is blasphemous. RedBull supports Moto, Rally Racing, BMX, MTB, Skateboarding, basically all action sports. Because of RedBull we get to watch interesting sports online instead of a bunch of fat guys chasing an odd shaped ball around a field with 1000 rules in place to make everything confusing. I drink a RedBull once in a while just to support the company. I find it ridiculous that people want to throw all these accusations around, knowing 0 about whether or not RedBull is helping Paul. Don't bite the hand that feeds you people. No one cares what you bitch about on the internet. They are not supporting Paul because of online forums. They are doing (and will continue to do) whatever it takes to remain a powerful leader in a Billion dollar industry.
