guancho-libre alu (alloy) is the same as in many other bikes - 7005. Besides konas are made in Taiwan in one of the 3 big bicycle palnts that produce about 90% of bikes in the world... So there is 30% chance that your bike was made in the same place... Apart of design flaws there is always small % of chance that your bike will fail due to material intrusions, cavities in welds, cracks in heat affected zone etc... If it was a design flow like the rockers in Kona Stinky 2006 or the chain stays in Specialized SX (old models) or the links in Giant Reign X you would see many more bikes like this with snapped head tube. So probably it was an material/welding issue or low cycle fatigue (who knows how many times before this guy has missed his landing).

Want to Win a Diamondback Mission Frameset?
Complaining on the contest because you need to be on facebook is the same as complaining on a contrest because you need to have access to internet or know about pinkbike. I am wondering when people will complain that Rampage is in Utah, not in their hometown...

To the Point - Kirk Pacenti on 27.5-inch Wheels
I am not 27.5" hater. Deffinetly not 29er hater. I do own 26er and 29er. It is great that the guy was able to choose his own way of MTB and managed to convince other to his idea. But I am really pissed about what the bike industry is doing. OK, maybe not all manufactures but in general. Maybe 26ers are not dead yet, maybe they won't extinct... But when I am looking on my favourite kind of bikes of some of the biggest brands I do not see 26ers anymore. I do not believe that this is because people are more interested in 650B. Some of the brands have switched from 26" to 650B in one year... From no 650B to no 26" WTF? How they were able to determine if noone is interested in 26ers anymore? I would really like to try the middle standard, but I do not want to be forced to change my bike every time bunch of people decide they know better. I like my old bike, but it is freaking hard to get enduro/FR fork with 1,125" steerer. Decent 9 speed drivetrain is more expensive then it was before industry introduced 10s. Old standards are slowly dying because industry do not want to support them anymore. And don't tell me that 650b is significantly better. Even if this is true, I cannot really tell because there are thousand other things that have impact oh how a bike performs. P.S. Sorry for my English. I freaking cannot learn this language even though I have to use it everyday at work.

FREE Online Premiere of ARRIVAL on Pinkbike
I am not tired of the music from The Collective or NWD series and I would love to hear silmilar tunes in all MTB movies. Deffinetly I do not like the kind of "music" used in this movie...

It would be great, but with different music... Seriously, 70% of this "music" sounds like mix of noises recorded in machining and plastic forming plants.

2013 Red Bull Rampage: 36 BIKES
So would you say 'asthetically' the 2008 Trek session 88 looks like: A) 2007 Trek session 10 or B) 2007 Kona Stab? And no, I am not talking about TURNER Burner.

2013 Red Bull Rampage: 36 BIKES
Oh no, every bike with front triangle, seat and double crown for looks like Trek Session 88/9.X. Trek should pat. it. Mate, Kona is following design that they were using previously at their Dh/FR bikes (Stab and Stinky). Look at Trek Diesel or Trek session 10. They had no 4 beam kind of suspenssion, no curved down tube, or curve "seat" tube. Kona was using 4 beam suspension in DH bikes since 1996 (maybe earlier), curved "seat" tube since 1999, cuved down tube since 2006 And those are only similarities that I can see. First Session 88 came up at 2008. Shitty Kona Operator graphics is also different from Trek's. But you are a hater and haters don't use logic... And probably don't understand geometry, cause it is tottaly different on these bikes.

Day 4 - 2013 World Champs - South Africa
To be honest I was disappointed with this course. Three days ago I was hitting harder DH trails on my 8 years old enduro bike, and I am pretty crappy rider.

I don't understand half of first caption, but can you please stop this wheel size crap? There are big articles on this subject and the bottom line is always the same. The rider will decide what works better for him. So what is the point of this discussion?
