Carbon Conundrum - Pole Bicycles Ditch Their Plastic Project
@polebicycles: I appreciate the response. I understand the basics of metal and recycling, as my old man was in the business for years going back to the 80's. The comment struck me funny, I'm not sure why. I also understand that most of what I read is marketing, especially on this website. My point is, your appear to be a forward thinking company, and you sell yourself as progressive environmentally in this article. Obviously, that is easy to applaud. That said, it feels like a Miss America pageant response. I get it, we all want peace (we'll most of us), global warming is bad (again, most of us agree), and we should all help suffering children and countries. I agree with all. Easy to do. So you admitted that everything is marketing, which I consider fluff. So what is the real reason for not moving to carbon? Recycling and environment issues aside. Easy answer. I'm on board with the recycling and environmental issues. If you're so progressive, which I bet you are, during the 2 year process of design and research (which you envolved a masters university student), what did you find in regards to waste and the process. Im calling BS on the easy answer. Again, you appear to be forward thinking, and this had to be clearly on your radar. I just feel there is more to it than what is listed in the article. I would have hoped for some deeper questions, and not marketing fluff, but that seems to have disappeared in today's society. Maybe too much to ask on PB, but it's toxic across all media outlets. Rant over

Carbon Conundrum - Pole Bicycles Ditch Their Plastic Project
@IllestT: sceptical is a good word, as I couldn't get bs out of my mind while reading this marketing advertisement. I love how recycling is sold as a core value to the company, but there is zero insight into carbon not being recyclable or resign is toxic prior to a trip to the factory? There is more to this than carbon isn't environmentally friendly. That's pretty well established. Resign is nasty stuff, but a quick YouTube video could have shown you 100's of examples of resign being toxic. My favorite part, is him saying aluminum frame manufacturing is doing the world a favor, because we need these excess bikes for other products in the future. I guess he missed the article where they have seas of bikes that they don't know what to do with around China.

Rocky Mountain Slayer Large

$2500 USD
Mint RM slayer frame... large blue/yellow. One minor scuff on the chain stay and one on the seat stay (See pics). You have to search to see them. The only real blemish is the smiley face I put on the hockey mask... you may or may not like it. Comes with headset, bb, and RS dropper. Price above includes shipping to the US. I have less than 10 rides on the frame. Bought as a complete build, but could never get the fit dialed. Most parts were swapped over to another frame. If you have any questions, let me know.

Help a Fellow Rider Following Serious Injury
^^^^ very true statement. I've only ridden with Ryan a couple times, and the dudes attitude is infectious. It is all about having fun and shredding dirt. I hope we get to witness a miracle!

Evil Insurgent - Review
When did 73* become slack? What's everyone's obsession with every bike having the same geometry? Don't you want diversity? It creates choices. That extra degree will add about an inch in wheel base. Everything has pluses and minuses.

I chalk this up to running a marathon... Attaboy for accomplishing your goal(s), but this has never crossed my mind as fun or a way to push my limits.
