Race Face Next R Carbon Wheels - Review
@mikekazimer: maybe just start riding in White coats and hydrate with beakers of electrolytes. That would be science. Seriously though, I appreciate your real world testing, as I know you can ride a bike and ride real trails. Thanks, you lucky dog!

Brannigan and the New Commencal Meta HT AM - Video
@JesseE: 111 is a great bike. I've been through a few bikes over the years. 153, Range, Wreckoning, etc... I will never get rid of the 111. The others are great bikes, but I don't consider them family. The 111 is family.

Production Privée Release New Shan nº5
@Milko3D: I guess it just depends on your style of riding and where you ride. In my region 3-4000' climbs are tolerated on 28-32lb bikes and no one really gets hung up on bike weight. Going up is a grind, no hurry. Going down is what counts.

Production Privée Release New Shan nº5
@Peregrinebikes: I totally agree about the feel of steel over aluminum or even carbon. But my experience with steel has only been with hardtails. I guess I assumed that frame material characteristics went out the window, once rear suspension comes in. But I can see what you are saying. Thanks.

Production Privée Release New Shan nº5
@Milko3D: my PP Shan is the best riding steel hardtail frame I have owned. (I have had about 4-5 other steel hardtails.)

Production Privée Release New Shan nº5
@Milko3D: I can't recall exactly. I'm sure numbers are posted online. Id say a general rule of thumb is a good steel hardtail weighs about a pound or two less than a similarly built 6" FS bike. Depending on what/where you ride a steel hardtail is really worthwhile. It is also worth mentioning that not all steel frames ride the same. The high end steel frames do ride better. Design, welds, quality of steel etc.. all factor in.

I really appreciate a steel hardtail (I even own a Production Privee Shan hardtail). But for the life of me, I cannot figure out why someone would want a steel FS bike? I could possibly see an argument for long term durability, but .......

Uncovering Oregon Gold for the Trans Cascadia
I think that's the idea... Be prepared for the unexpected.

I'd prefer something a bit more enduro.
