Pole Rinne Ylä - Review
A negative anti-squat. Also known as squat.

Pole Rinne Ylä - Review
Not really. Longer wheel base and especially longer chain stays (because your weight is so far forward) means you have to get your weight way farther back (the length of your arms are probably the limiting factor here) or you have to lift the front end higher which means less stability. The higher inertia of a bigger bike might make up for that, but I doubt it. BMX are so easy to manual because you can manual with the front wheel just barely off the ground.

Pole Rinne Ylä - Review
Actually, it doesn't matter if the chain line is parallel or not. The cassette only transmits the forces to the dropout, so the only thing that changes with rear cog size is the torque. I'm not sure how big of a deal this is though because I would imagine that hardly any force actually goes into the dropout rather than just turning the wheel, but the bikes will have some squat from pedaling.

Opinion: Show Me the Money
That's just obfuscating the entire point once again. First of all, if there's a belief by some people that reviews aren't fully honest, then this article that insults those people by burning straw men is really only going to make that sentiment stronger. Second, this isn't about bias or personal preference. The point is that bias should not be related to marketing of the people who enable your paycheck.

Ah yes, I find the logical fallacy that this entire article is based on to be very refreshing.

Bunch of bull carp. This article is just throwing out straw men. I guess we know that RC doesn't receive "tips" so now it's clear that everything on this site is without bias.

Video: How to Print a Mountain Bike
@robwhynot, I'll admit, I've been surprised by what 3D printers have been able to accomplish. I work in defense and we have our 3D printer running non stop on designs that I never would have imagined. But the only people who really believe that it will take over actual machining are hobbyists. There's a reason your friends have that attitude, and there's a reason all big companies that manufacture with carbon fiber or do any molding pay so much money for precision machined parts. ABS plastic is a material that bonds under heat and pressure. It's still not cutting it.

Molds are expensive. Lower quality molds are less expensive. It works for this guy and his personal bikes, but there's a reason why it wouldn't work for bigger bike companies.

Wrong article. Go find somewhere else to grind your axe.

World Premiere - The Rise of Enduro - That's a Wrap
So bored of hearing the definition of Enduro. Is anybody still confused? I will be happy if I never have to hear that it's "all about getting together and riding with your mates" again.
