From the Top: Scott's Pascal Ducrot
It isn't as though Scott drive the market, same as no one company does. Each is doing their own extra one thing and this becomes a hodge pot of mess. Shops have to sell bikes and media have to sell print so there's a lot of extra pressure on something new for the sake of it... way beyond what a single manufacturer can control and they just have to react to what people are told is hot right now

Sneak Peek: Manon Carpenter's Race Bike
I wonder if Manon has even had a chance to see the bike herself yet?! Would suck to see your race bike on an international site first!

Orange Bikes Launches Two New 29ers
To put it another way, why do you need a million linkages? True that certain characteristics can be tuned but the majority of the answer is "marketing". The replies here show that exactly. Suspension characteristics are about finding a balance and there is no one best solution. If you drag your brakes through the rough stuff or pedal seated power mincing around a trail centre then a single pivot won't feel best for you. On the flip side, you get a more intuitive and interactive ride. I really liked the little things like a quick tap of the rear brake to dive the front in to a corner for example before transferring weight back and popping out. A lot of more neutral bikes lack a connection to the rider so it depends what you like.... and I know people never believe it but UK mud is like no other ;) :)

Italians Came, Saw and Conquered White Style 2017
@Hyperx: Point is, before the days of FMB (or at least, before it was so established) this type of event had a ton of coverage and hype and was popular for what it is and riders seemed to enjoy it, again for what it is. I think any silver event is definitely going to struggle to attract the top riders and in turn media. Just look at a certain Canadian who only turns up to diamond events... if the points and coverage isn't there then I guess it is harder to justify the travel etc. Shame in a lot of ways. Maybe some of it is "slopestyle" in general losing popularity but it is just an unfashionable label IMO and this type of event is a lot of what people still get excited about. There should definitely be more excitement around throwing 7's both ways or something is wrong!

MTB Training: Four Exercise Muscle Building Set - Video
"Tendons are also our last defense before a joint (or ligament within a joint) becomes injured, so it’s crucial for the muscle and tendons to be as strong as possible." Tendons have nothing to do with the likelihood of ligament injury The adaption time of a tendon is also pretty long so a bit of winter weight training will make naff all difference to tendons! If anything, it is reason to be very gradual and consistent since they take so long to respond
