Bike Standards—How Did We Get Here?—A Podcast
Personally it's easier to get sign off for a new bike because of backwards incompatiblity. " Yes - I know it's frustrating me too - I loved those Ibis 941s but they just aren't compatible. And I know you want me to be safe - I'm doing this because the kids need their father."

Bike Standards—How Did We Get Here?—A Podcast
It's as if these bike companies exist purely to make money.

Bike Standards—How Did We Get Here?—A Podcast
It's all bullshit anyway. I bought a carbon framed carbon wheeled 29er for £7k - 3 years ago. It generates envy. It admittedly does go pretty well. I bought recently a Surly pugsley fat bike. It's hard to pedal, tiring to ride and just stupid. I love it and it's rekindled my desire to explore aimlessly without a stopwatch on proceedings. So who gives a flying fuck in a rolling doughnut about this new standard or that new standard. Just buy something you enjoy now and be happily obsolete tomorrow. What these people should be talking about it making e bikes unwaterproof. That I'd pay to see.

We Are One Composites - Bringing Carbon Manufacturing to Canada
I'm a big unit and early doors I was really disappointed with the performance of my 29er wheels. I felt as if the hub was swinging laterally with the frame on the berm. So the wheels would load up / then release as I transitioned off the berm. I got a set of IBIS 941s and they've transformed the bike in terms of responsiveness. So for me - a 29er carbon wheel is a must have. All the very best for the new business.

Katy Winton's Factory Trek Slash 29 and Remedy 27.5 Race Bikes
That's quite a good point on the brakes - I guess if you are lighter then you run the risk of locking up if your brakes are too good. Me - i'm 20 stone and I need modulation to stop the "runaway train" effect when getting up to full tilt. I need a lot of stopping but I want to wind it on gradually.

Robot Bike Co R160 - First Look
I'm always amazed at people's constant attempt on here to elevate themselves either morally , technically or intellectually above a concept. I'm always disappointed by responses that dignify shitty sarcastic comments. Fair play to the manufacturing process that may wave good bye to 6 month long seasonal trends and can generate a broad choice within bike specifications. Scaling up production should mean cost reductions but until that point if someone wants to order a Raleigh Chopper and pay for it then that's cool by me. Everyone has been an engineer longer than me as I ain't one but then I do not give a flying fuck in a rolling dough nut.

Plus-Size Bikes - Pinkbike Poll
I think having choice is fantastic. After all - no one would ever say one size fits all would they? The process we see is an evolutionary one where an idea is developed and extended over time. It is a function of the time taken to build and refine and tinker. It looks like a massive pisstake when you see the "new best wheel size" but then if you are letting bike manufacturers define your experience of mountain biking then may be you've bought the hype.
