Guerrilla Gravity's Less Expensive, US-Made Carbon Frame
Yeah, I think I'd only trust something like a Fabric or Fidlock up there. But at least it's there! You can always use it for something else.

Field Test: Trance vs Sensor vs Habit vs SB130
I agree, though it bugs me a little that we're only seeing two frames - plus a bit of a dropout and a bit of a 34. I get that Pinkbike is splitting the picture into four equal parts, but the frame makes the bike, not the wheels. Funnily enough, the GT in the back and the Habit in the front both have Stan's wheels, the Flow and Arch respectively, which are both so popular that they can be found on most any bike aftermarket.

From The Top: David Lappartient, President of the UCI
"Worldwide, road and MTB count for 40% and 20% of license holders, followed by BMX (10%) and others (30%)." 30%!? What's in that 30%? It can't just be artistic cycling. I don't hold a license, so I only assume that track requires a different license from road, but that still doesn't seem like enough. Does a road license cover CX or is there a separate one?

@Patrick9-32: Ah, no, now I see the real issue. My night filter reddens the screen, making them clash more. They may not have changed it at all.

Interview: Rachel Atherton - The Records Don't Matter
What Rachel says about sponsorship of female riders is incredibly important. However, I've always been very encouraged by the strength of interest in womens' MTB racing. Demographically, this sport (and this website's comment sections) are dominated by men, and yet despite inequalities in sponsorship and many other areas, it seems like there's just as much genuine excitement and engagement for the womens' field as for the men's. Better still, it (almost always) revolves around the actual competition, and not the gender or appearance of the competitors - many other sports treat women's competition as token at best, or a beauty pageant at worst. Comments trivializing the athletes based on their looks are generally and responsibly downvoted below the threshold. This equality wouldn't be possible without the dedication of inspiring athletes like Rachel and all her contemporaries. Thanks to them, women's MTB is a spectacle deserving the same sponsorship and advertising commitment as men's MTB - since it already receives so much recognition from fans, I sincerely hope it receives that financial recognition soon too. I suspect that, in many cases, companies' reluctance to invest in womens' sports is due to a fear (sometimes misplaced and sometimes not) that the womens' competition is insufficiently competitive or compelling, and that advertising budget spent there to yield equal return to budget spent on men's racing. But lower viewership is also a result of lower investment, and as evidenced by slow but inexorable growth across the board, I think the world of sport is beginning to recognize that.

@Patrick9-32: Hey, I think they changed it! I'm not sure which color they changed (maybe both) but it isn't giving me a headache anymore. Thanks, anonymous Pinkbike webmaster!

Field Test: Specialized S-Works Stumpjumper 29
I love how the bottom-out picture looks so serene. Even the wrinkles on the tire look peaceful and static.

4 Suspension Forks You've Probably Never Seen - Taipei Cycle Show 2018
That's brand dilution for you. Lots of people don't want the same name on their lowers as on a Costco bike, price and quality be damned. I often wonder why they don't have a separate brand for their high-end stuff. They certainly have the money to put some advertising weight behind establishing one. @SRSuntour?
