First Look: 2015 Shimano XTR – Eleven Speed Cassette - Choose Your Drivetrain
I love Shimano, but this is a huge fail. Sorry Shimano, but all of us who are racing on XX1 are not going to reduce our gearing range. For endurance races (50 to 100 mile), the XX1 is typically just enough range. Now that I'm used to 10-42, 11-40 isn't gonna cut it for me (to the person who says "get stronger" I'll say that I'm not a pro, but am typically a top-10-overall non-pro contender in events such as the Whiskey 50). I'm _never_ going to use a front derailleur again on a MTB either!

First Ride: RockShox RS-1 Fork – Carbon, Inverted, Expensive and for 29ers Only
So cool to see RockShox trying something truely different, even if version one is a bit pricey. Perhaps it will prove to be a failure, but perhaps it won't and will lead to a major advancement in fork design. Personally, I think it looks pretty rad.

Video: Akrigg Does CX!
Loved it! Perhaps I should take my CX more places.... Would love to see how Chris would do in a real CX race. I bet he'd crush it.

Is Specialized Finally Going 650b?
It's not a question of them holding out on 26" bikes, it's more that they've been betting on 29" bikes. 29" is almost all they sell currently (excluding DH). Personally, I think it's way too early to say everything is going back from 29 to 27.5.

GT Force Carbon Pro - Reviewed
^ the drivetrain people would expect on an enduro bike of this price in 2014 is XX1 or X01. This will cost $1200 or so to buy aftermarket. Not a cheap or quick change at all.

GT Force Carbon Pro - Reviewed
1x11 is pretty much standard for any serious Enduro or XC racer now. The triple crankset seems so throw-back that I would simply not trust GT enough to buy their bike for that reason alone. I care about attention to detail big time and little things like that scream that somebody at GT does not.

Santa Cruz to Launch Limited Edition Minnaar V10 Replica
^ original by building your own custom rig from all the parts you choose. That's what most people do isn't it? That's what I always do.
