First Look: Bold Linkin Trail
Yep. It could also be argued that Manitou had their shocks built into their seatstays ;-) And then there's all the soft tails....Moots etc.

A refreshing lack of bumbags / fanny(!) packs in this vid.

Now Over: Norco Ask Us Anything - DH Geometry and Suspension Kinematics
Do you find it annoying when people ignore the time requests and ask questions early? Will Norco ever rebrand? They make some great bikes now but 'Norco' sounds like something from the mining industry from the 1960s.

Video: From Dust Till Town - The Full Story
There's something to be said for quality over quantity. There was a time when you had to wait a year for the next Earthed and the like. Now there's just a million 'edits' and they are all pretty well boring and shit. And all the slow-mo / 'arty' stuff can piss off as well. More Warner strapped to a hovercraft fan please :D

Now a pair of tires as I am selling both the ones that I have. $40 for the pair As above. Evo Line. Tubeless Ready. Folding bead. Pace Star compound (to save you potentially 5 hours trying to figure out what the eff 'Pace Star' means, it's a reasonably firm compound - good for rear wheels or for cutting down rolling resistance - maybe not ideal for riding Lower Ladies on a wet day). Still has the little 'knobs' from manufacturing on most of the tire knobs so hardly used. Maybe trade for a decent 760mm or wider bar. Or some Hollowtech2 style cranks - I don't need rings or BB.

Opinion: Driving With Dad and the Boost Hub Standard
"When I bought my fat bike I didn't whine about the 100mm BB or the 170mm hub in back or the 135mm hub for the fork" - why not? You bitch and moan about everything else!

As above. Fits Fox DHX shocks (as it came off one) but no idea what else. Might trade for MTB cranks (68 / 73mm BB), decent 760+mm bar, decent 'retro' suspension fork. Maybe something else! Maybe even an old bike that you've forgotten about in your garage / storage space that needs some love!

Brand new Tune seatpost. 31.6mm x 340mm Quality German made piece of equipment with titanium hardware and minimalistic design, yet super strong.

Almost new RaceFace Aeffect saddle. Really lightweight quality saddle but alas it doesn't fit my butt too well.... If you are used to Fizik style saddles then you'll probably love it. Ti rails. 240g yet a long saddle. Full specs and an example of on-line pricing here: http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/ca/en/race-face-aeffect-saddle/rp-prod113268 Mainly looking for cash, although I have a bit of a project on the go and need fairly wide 26" tires (Minnions HRs etc), Hollowtech 2 style crank arms, wide bar, 9sp mtb cassette with an alloy carrier (XT, XTR etc). So maybe a trade could be done.
