Video: SixSixOne Breaks into the Eyewear Market with the Radia Goggle
Not to steal 661’s thunder (seems like a great product at a good price), but Zenni optical has prescription goggles at a similarly great price for those who need googles and glasses

Bontrager Release BITS Integrated Stem Tool System
The allin multitool that goes in your crank spindle is amazing. I use it all the time, and if I lose it I'm buying another one immediatly.

X Fusion Slide RL2

$200 USD
This is an excellent fork, comparable to other 34mm stantion forks from Rockshox or Fox. This can be used for anything from XC to aggressive trail riding. The tapered steerer is uncut, so this will fit any headtube and riding position. Fork has rebound adjustment and lockout, suits itself for a very set it and forget it riding style. I just took it apart, flushed out the damper, put fresh oil all around. I didn’t change the foam rings because I didn’t have any, but cleaned the seals and greased the moving parts in the damper. This fork can be set at any travel from 100mm to 160mm, currently set at 140mm. I can open it back up and change the travel, but I would add 50$ to my asking price. The North America service center for XFusion is in Reno and they charge 90$ plus shipping both ways. If you want fresh seals and rings, I can do that for the same 50$ plus the cost of the seals and rings (30$) I’ll include the top cap tool and damper removal tool with the fork so you can take a stab at servicing this fork down the road if you would like.

Why Are We Using 12-Speed Drivetrains? - The Explainer
@Paddock22: Yeah, That's why I go 32-46. Plenty of spin, but I'll walk up anything that really needs more than that.

Cannondale and GT to Reject Traditional Mid-Year Model Structure
Not true. Social media has turned MTB into something you may actively do for a few months a year, but you are thinking about all the time.

Cannondale and GT to Reject Traditional Mid-Year Model Structure
Releasing bikes on a set schedule is catalog thinking in the internet age.

Behind the Numbers: 5 Trail Bikes Compared
I know it doesn’t make for good marketing content, and I know that Pinkbike needs to write long articles about stuff like this because if nobody was then we wouldn’t have a platform like this to comment on. Rear axle path, progressivity, anti squat, these are terms that maybe 5% of riders are really compelled by. Tons and tons of riders buy a bike because they like it, and while they will ride a different bike and know that there are differences between the two, they aren’t going to rattle off why the different linkage changes the kinematics of the suspension platform blah blah blah. Bikes are so freaking good now. Not one of the bikes covered in the article is a loser. You won’t be poorly served on any of them, so whatever you like the look of or get a good deal on might just be the selling point. A $2000 bike today spanks nearly anything on the market from 10 years ago.

Now Finished: Ask Us Anything with Cane Creek
Can you comment on the struggles of competing with the Big 2 when it comes to suspension? I really love the idea of doing something different/3rd party with my components, but it’s so hard to move away from platforms with so much support in terms of both shops and general info online. I love your headsets and other stuff, and I hope to see your forks on more bikes.

First Look: DT Swiss' New 1501 & 1700 Spline Wheelsets
Its also a win for mountain bikers who don’t live on pinkbike. There are a lot of consumers who know DT Swiss is a good wheel brand (And they aren’t wrong) and they want carbon wheels. It sounds crazy to the rest of us, but plenty of riders will just pick the one from the brand they’ve heard of
