Rose Bikes Stops Selling Bikes in the UK Due to Brake Lever Laws
@ReubenSandwich: No one's ever heard of? There is this continent called Europe. Rose is one of the biggest online stores here, and their bikes are pretty popular as well. They offer pretty damn good specs for the money.

Crankbrothers Launches Two New Multitools With Storage Compartments - Sea Otter Play
@tacklingdummy: I generally don't notice these things, but when I used a small-ish seat bag on my road bike I really noticed the weight when I was out of the saddle pedalling. I went to a waaay bigger half frame bag, and even tho the frame bag ended up being 2-3x heavier than the seat bag because I put way more stuff in it, the bike felt lighter under me. The weight being so high up makes a big difference.

I think the logical next step is a stash tool that goes inside your body.

GoPro Launches New Hero 9 with 5K Video & 2 Screens
I have a 1080p screen at home and I watch youtube videos in the 4k setting on it all the time. The bitrate is way higher and the image is so much more detailed. It's super noticeable on trail riding footage where the foliage turns into a blocky, blurry mess in 1080p. As it was mentioned already 4-5k is also very nice for framing and downsampling. Personally I don't miss the days when most (consumer grade) cameras could only record low bitrate 1080p.

Video: Salsa's New Blackthorn Trail Bike - First Look
I was pretty surprised when I checked lower priced FS options like the recently announced Polygon Siskiu T8. I'm more familiar with the European side of things, but here we also have some sweet options from D2C brands like Canyon, Radon, Rose. Lower end drivetrains are getting better and better, stuff like 4 pot brakes are getting cheaper, reliable droppers are getting cheaper. FS bikes or just bikes in general are still not cheap, but personally i'm kinda happy with today's bikes, especially if I look back what we had 10-15 years ago.

@cedrico: Yes you are allowed to say that. But keep in mind that swapping a stem takes 5 minutes and costs 30-40 bucks. It's not a big deal. Sure, it would be nice if every complete bike on the market was absolutely perfect and you wouldn't have to change a single component, but that will never happen.

@cedrico: Just run the stem backwards. Super progressive, you'll be living in the future basically.

@Callum-rose: I have a vague idea, but what does ride quality mean on a full sus bike (genuine question)? When a bike has good ride quality, how much of it is down to the tyres and the shock and the fork, and how much of it is down to the actual frame design?

New Stems, Dropper Posts, Lights, & More From Bontrager - Across the Pond Beaver
@CircusMaximus: I'm not saying it's a bad light, it's just not a particularly good light for the money. It's great that you're happy with it and i'm sure it does a great job, but there are lights out there that will give you a better beam pattern, better output, some better features etc. for the same amount of money. Simple as that, i'm not trying to hurt your feelings. :) @b3n: From the price of the Ion Pro i'd probably buy a Fenix BC30 V2, 4 18650 batteries, and a 4 bay smart charger. Nice beam, 2 XM-L2 leds, included wireless remote, 1500lm output on high with a decent run time, which you can extend if you bring extra batteries since it uses replaceable 18650s. For a helmet light i'm a fan of flashlights, but that's just me. I'm not super up to date tho, i'm sure there are other sweet lights I don't know about.

@ratedgg13: I'd normally agree, but the beam pattern on this thing is pretty meh, nothing special at all. There are much better options out there for the same or less money. Most people will be amazed tho when they first turn it on if they haven't had any kind of a decent light before.
