Brannigan and the New Commencal Meta HT AM - Video
@bosnianrider: Yeah, I know and its really nice, but it's the 2017 version (non-boost, non-plus, etc). I hope this new 2018 version will be available in cromo as well. :)

Raaw Madonna - Press Release and Interview
It would be nice to give the reason why they don't sell to US and Canada. At least a hint or vague explanations would be appreciated... There doesn't seem to be any patent issues. I guess it could be an exclusion required by the frame manufacturer similar to the Specialized/Merida deal... It would certainly be nice to know.

Have Your Say on the Ever-Changing Bike Standards
I wonder if the bike industry realize how much their hardcore base (thinking about those who started riding 15 - 30 years ago, never stopped and own multiple bikes) are bitter about the standard shit show that happened in the past 5 year or so. I know we are quite a bunch of passionate riders who are still holding out to our old ride, refusing to drop big money on something that is likely to be obsolete 2 years from now. You did sell many bikes to new riders and your sales figures are doing great, but there will be an end to this if buying a new bike continues to be a stressful, frustrating and wallet-draining experience. It used to be fun to buy a new bike; it isn't as much fun anymore. We used to easily be able to assemble a kick ass hardtail from the leftover parts as we upgraded our main ride. It isn't possible anymore and that sucks, big time. I would like the bike industry to agree to stick for a few years to the current standards for the main bike parts: Boost spacing, 27.5, 27.5+/29 cross-compatible frames, 1.125 - 1.5 tapered head tube, etc. That way, we'll be able to build kickass custom bikes from the frame up or continuously upgrade a great complete bike for a while. #bringbackcustombikes :) After a few years of stable standards, it will become clear what must me changed. We will actually be happy to see an innovation that will be a true improvement

Pivot's New Carbon and Alloy Enduro Bikes - First Look
Good job from Pivot on the various builds, especially on the forks: Fox 36 Factory on nearly all M6 models. Other companies should take note! It makes me mad when the only way to buy a complete bike with a top-of-the-line fork is to buy the 10 000$ model with carbon rims.

Good for you if there is still hope in your case. All I have left is hope that someday, my 6 y.o. will hit trails like that as hard as those 8 years old lads. :)
