Specialized S-Works Enduro 29 - Reviewed
The PR tries to gloss that it marginally handles better than other 29. Cog is higher, center of rotational mass is higher, standing mass is higher than 26. The rear end is not a proper suspension but basically semirigid. Best bike? Very doubtful. 10k is obscene. The articles language is way over the top. Not good.

Teaser: Czech Blood In Morocco
The last Atlas range, downhill into Sahara foothills. Epic. Atlas minor good too. The old caravan trails are still usable.Many follow the ne route. If you hurt yourself, big trouble, Help is 12h drive away. Need a 4x4 truck to get to crazy spots. Drive and ferry from central Europe takes about 30h total. 8h to Marakech, 2h into Atlas minor. Road bike heaven too. After that - offroading. Food is amazing. Scenery breathtaking.

2014 Sea Otter Downhill Photo Recap
Its not a legit dh-track. Funpark for the travel challenged AM crowd? Pb and industry trying to redefine what dh is?

Photo Recap: Pietermaritzburg XC World Cup
@mojo: Dh is not Enduro.Taking a XC bike down a decent dh-track is a waste of opportunity and downright dangerous. Those things wear and break and lycra,eggshell are hardly protective. Seen that many times. After beeing used to protective gear and great handling dh-bikes and still doing occasional time in ER - using a road bike definitely makes you feel like you are doing a stupid stunt. Nevertheless I enjoy street riding.

Deity, Guerrilla Gravity, Race Face - Sea Otter 2014
@poozank: Functional design, aesthetically pleasing, great frame geometry and easy to maintain. So its everything that Spec, Giant plastic bikes aren`t and the buck and jobs stays in the neighbourhood. Yes, they are worthy of you supporting a small machine shop instead of a multinational parking your dollars on the Caymans while running sweatshops throughout Asia and polluting your planet.

Results: Pietermaritzburg World Cup Round 1 Finals - Elite Men
This is an enduro track and not a dh-track. Its watered down. So an enduro 650 wins against another enduro framed rider. Did I enjoy the race? No, boring NASCAR commercial avenue. A little bit of fast and mostly comfort zone...
