Now THAT Was a Bike: 1993 AMP Research B2
When I worked in bike shops in the mid ‘90s a super high end bike would run $4k. A “good” bike was about $1k. Prices of bikes have gone up a small amount if you take inflation into account but doesn’t explain why every bike tested on PB is a 30lb pig that “isn’t too heavy”. My Trek VRX is 27lbs and a porker IMO... my hardtail is about 24lbs with heavy Atomic flatties. Those bikes are 20+ years old - tech has come a long way since then but evidently with a heavy price @loganflores:

Review: Ibis Ripmo
Why are modern bikes so heavy? 29lbs ain’t light to me, not even close. I get that suspension is better and longer but my ancient Trek VRX weighs the same and it’s got heavy ass wheels and pedals. Not sure I get 35mm for non-DH bike, just how rigid do you want your bars? I want a little give to help smooth out chatter, it’s like wheels where too stiff is possible.

Manon Carpenter Retires from DH Racing
Sad to see her go, she was my favorite of the current crop of riders but she is making the right decision IMO. If you can't give it 100% you are short changing sponsors and fans and exposing yourself to risk. So is she engaged to Ratboy yet? :p

Now THAT Was a Bike: 1992 MBS Clark-Kent Fat Bike
I own a Clark-Kent F-14 frame which was built up into a pretty nice bike back in ~1998, I still have it and it rides great.

Pinkbike Poll: Who Has the Right of Way - the Climber or the Descender?
I was taught climbers have RoW but typically I will pull over unless I am in a tech section as it is easier (going slower) and I know how much fun descending is when uninterrupted. I do expect the descender to be prepared to yield though. Recently at Heil Ranch in CO trail patrol descending stopped to let me know I have RoW as I was climbing - my response was "thank you but in this case it was easier for me to pull over ". So, IMO, a descender should not expect RoW but when possible, as a courtesy, it should be given. This is how it seems to work with hikers, yes they have RoW but a lot of the time they see it is easier for them to move over for a few seconds than have a rider dismount and have to restart.

Now THAT Was a Bike: 1993 Klein Adroit
I was going to say TPC has the actual bike I believe - it was in the front of their shop when I stopped in. SO purple!

Video: The Pro's Closet Museum Series - Ned Overend
I stopped by the Pros Closet - super nice people and this was one of the bikes shown to me. I hope they do Tinker Juarez's bike soon - it's both cool and hilarious (lots of crazy ano).
