Cybro Industries Releases Gearbox-Equipped Carbon Hardtail
@nickfranko: The last 160 hardtail I had was on a Salsa Timberjack frame...so not exactly designed as a slack beastie.

I disagree. I find a 160 front to be delightful on a hardtail.

8 Men Charged in $1.5 Million Mountain Bike Shop Burglary Criminal Ring Investigation
@stumphumper92: Yeah...I have to concur with that statement. You never leave your bike someplace you can't keep your eyes on it...locked or not.

Bike Check: Loris Fibre's 'Project Klin' Bikepacking Concept Bike
@danstonQ: Seriously? You don't need suspension for 27.5+? Do you only ride smooth trails? 27.5+ absorbs bumps up to 1", but after that you'd better have some suspension....or do you consider + tires to only be for going slow?

Pinkbike Poll: What Was the Greatest Advancement In Mountain Bike Technology?
Front suspension isn't on the list? WTF? Those of us who've been riding for ages can tell you...rigid SUCKS for bombing. Front suspension was a game-changer in ways like no other. You can haul ass with a good fork on a hardtail, but that's not true of no suspension at all. Front suspension made riders 200% faster. Rear suspension made riders 50% faster. Is this a poll for what "other than front suspension" was the best advancement? Are you guys just so young that you can't remember what it was like to bash around on a rigid fork?

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 90 - Is Supre the Future of Trouble-Free Drivetrains? (with Cedric Eveleigh of Lal Bikes)
It's really nice to hear an engineer talk about bike stuff instead of a marketing person.

Story Time: Everything I Know About Bikes is Wrong
Don't feel bad about PB's "This bike is great because it's got half a degree more slack on the head angle and all others are dog shit." The fact of the matter is that most people don't ride lots of bikes. To most people, a good bike is a significant investment that should last them a long time. Those people don't get the chance to compare bikes back-to-back as much and having someone else do that riding and try their hardest to explain the distinctions between the bikes is a very valuable thing, even if the differences come down to very small things. Your job is to help us buy the bikes that will work(hopefully best) for us. Keep that in mind and do your best. You don't have to be the best rider, you have to be able to relate to us the differences.

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 89 - The Derailleur Pickle
More cogs are to keep jumps between gears at a good level while providing a larger gear range. Going to a single front was bad for total drive range, so they're trying to make up for that. 6:1 total range is a good goal. 5:1 is a bit small. Remember that bikes are used in all sorts of places, not just the PNW.
