Revisited: The Specialized Status 140 After One Year With a Guest Editor
Bike looks like it was ridden on the beach for a year and stored in quicksand. And WTH does "spaceship" mean?

Patent Round-Up: Fox's Self-Adjusting Suspension, Specialized's Cable-Routing Headset & Shimano's Slimline Brakes
I would like to see a few improvements in my Pinion C1.9 and Zerode, but it's already so good I will never buy another fast failure derailleur bike.

Zerode Bikes Launches its G3 Downhill Bike
@FuzzyL: It's not really about the gearbox. Or the belt. It's the back wheel. Just like your German forefathers figured out in F1 so many years ago, unsprung weight and kinematics are the difference makers at high speed. But yeah, the gearbox and belt are cool too.

Zerode Bikes Launches its G3 Downhill Bike
Zerode improved my love life and I still ride 3-5 days a week. Several years ago I would spend countless hours in my bike cave fixing derailleurs, chains, chainrings cassettes, cables, bottom brackets, spindles, hangers, and shifters. When they weren't bent or broken or worn out, they needed cleaning, lubing, adjusting. Two years ago when every bike shop said NO to a new bike, Ali Quinn at Zerode said "No problem Mate" (or something like that) and a week later I was building up a Katipo. Now, I'm never going to tell anyone that Pinion and Gates is a XC riding solution. It's not. But if you're cranking up hills and coming down hot... well it's the shizzle. The first time on the Katipo I cleaned a 3 mile technical trail that most people 1/3 my age can't ride. It has been a revelation, "Grip Shift" and all. I immediately gave away 6 bent & broken derailleurs, with a moving box full of chains and half worn out clap trap. And chain cleaners. And chain lube. I ain't never going back. All those late hours I used to waste fixing crap in the bike cave are now spent with my sweetheart. Thank you Zerode. As for the rest of you, I'll be waiting at the bottom...;-)

Zerode Bikes Launches its G3 Downhill Bike
SRAM GripShift and Pinion shifting are a bit similar, but the feel and performance are completely different. I've been on a Katipo for a few years and have a bit more than armchair speculation. Shifting in the air, or even when bombing an eyeball shaking rough patch is second nature. When I've climbed to a downhill launch ramp I track stand for 1/2 second and drop 6 gears. Meanwhile, my buds are dismounting and doing that hand pedaling wheel lift shift thing. It's actually hilarious. I suspect G3 WC riders will do well.

The Pinkbike Podcast: What Could the MTB Industry Do Better?
So much though provoking content this week. And welcome back from F1 Levy, you seem refreshed. - Fabrication is what the industry does well. Really well. What else do you own in sporting goods that is as well made as a new trail bike? - The industry is terrible at technical advancements. The AXS derailleur and chain driven cassette are space age buggy whips. Non-integrated and round dropper posts? Seriously? - Standards... Wasn't the universal hanger a "shot heard round the world?" And Brian, I get what you're trying to say about "walled gardens" and interest payments, but these ideas reveal a limited understanding of engineering design and economics. Hmmmm...
