Review: e*thirteen's TRS+ 12-Speed Cassette Offers a Whopping 556% Range
Too Bad their 556% range wont make up for the fact everything E*thirteen is garbage, had a trs+ cassette on my YT Capra and out of the box I have had problems with it, the "awesome" system that allows you to take it off without any proprietary parts is flawed and the set screw loosens on me constantly, only creating my a MM or two of play but its enough for it to make the chain want tot jump on the next cog. I've tried to fix this problem and it always comes back, i just switched to full Sram, flawless.

Review: YT Capra 29 CF Pro Race
I purchased the Capra 29" CF this year and I'm not going to sit here and say its perfect, cause out of the box its definitely not.. but neither is any other bike on the market for $3800. I definitely agree with this article in the fact that this bike is too progressive and with the super deluxe RC3 rear shock it would hit the mid stroke and pack out super bad in the rough, I switched over to Fox DHX2 coil and its feels amazing now. definitely think they could work on the drivetrain, the E*13 cassette runs like shit with the Shimano spec, really disappointing for it to run so poorly out of the box.

Pinkbike Poll: What's the Most You'd Spend on a Mountain Bike?
I think this is really enlighting on where the market is going, even over the past three to four years I think the price of a good full suspension mountain bike has drastically dropped do to demand. You can now buy a fully capable bike for $3000 with built up with the big two, a dropper and a 1 X11 or 1 X 12 drivetrain, I remember when I got my first bike (2009) it had a $5800 MSRP (new) and came with about the same build as bikes 2k less today, even with inflation. Although we all bitch about new standards and no being able to buy parts, you have to give it to the industry for making solid machines for a avarage rider.

Spotted: New Santa Cruz V10?
Is It just me or does the New V10 look exactly like the Old V10? Obviously they haven't heard about the session..
