Video: Friday Fails #306
Here's the deal though... You can gauge interest and views on PB articles by the number of comments. Fails used to have comments in the hundreds. Ever since the ads... no bueno. Better business to roll with the banner ads and more views.

Video: Friday Fails #304
What a shame. Friday Fails have been a part of my routine for a while now. That was difficult do watch! Fails were fun, but not fun enough to sit through ads.

Review: 2023 Transition Smuggler - The Little Ripper
You can't get that rear travel from the Spur. The Smuggler can probably push into the Spur category better than the Spur can push into the Smuggler category. I owned the Spur and pushed it to the to the trail category... its was fun for sure but was definitely at its limit... particularly the rear.

Revenue Round Up: It's Not All Negative with Revenue Increases for Some in Q3
@GTscoob: There’s your problem. Get yourself some 165s and lift your saddle.

Revenue Round Up: It's Not All Negative with Revenue Increases for Some in Q3
I know it’s not the way financials are reported but they really should be comparing 2023 to 2019. The 3 years between don’t represent an organic market… those years were manipulated by governments. They should just consider those 3 years as a windfall, they will never be able sell at those volumes and prices again.

First Ride: Raaw Madonna V3 - Better Than Ever
Price is going to be a big issue for any new bike released this year and next. We are seeing 20-40% off right now... paying full price is a pass for me.

First Ride: Raaw Madonna V3 - Better Than Ever
I think the price is going to be a factor for any new bike released this year and next. We are seeing 20-40% off everywhere... it would be hard sell to pay full price in this market.

Review: Cane Creek Tigon - The Air Charged Coil Shock
Im shocked….$1000 is way more than Im willing to pay, when a comparable goes for $550.

Field Test Review: 2024 Ibis HD6 - Sporty and Smashy
@pr3dator: I think he has already described it. The longer fork is wallowing in its travel... deeper compared to the rear... probably diving. He's tried to compensate by adding a volume spacer... but really that's just going to make a deference near the bottom of the travel. Sure he could add air pressure, but at some other undesirable expense like small bump compliance, or lack of full travel. This bikes geo, and that short HT and stack height limits any other fork travel options. This is it... 180mm is your only option... unless you want to turn it into trail bike geo with a 170mm.

Field Test Review: 2024 Ibis HD6 - Sporty and Smashy
@Munne: You are correct... but something about the "dynamic" characteristics don't add up to the mechanical characteristics of these offset suspension bikes (ie. previous gen Yeti bikes). It is very difficult to get the same "feel" from the front and rear assuming similar percentage travel used. Had 3 previous gen Yeti's and would always eat up rear travel completely while leaving 15-20mm on the fork. Sure, I could adjust settings and air pressure on the fork or shock to use the same amount of travel, but then one is firmer or softer than the other. The SB165 was similar to this HD6 (180/165mm)... I dropped the fork to 170mm to balance it out. However, the HD6 HTA isnt slack enough to drop the fork travel.
