European Commission Announces Proposal For eMTBs to Require Third Party Insurance
@deadmeat25: "Road tax" in the UK is actually Vehicle Exercise Duty, and is based purely on emissions. Electric cars, and even low CO2 petrol cars don't pay it. Why would a Bike need to pay it? Do you pay Pavement Tax for walking to the shop? Road maintenance is taken from your council tax.

Giro Launches New Flat Pedal Shoe Line
@andnyleswillriot: I belive the strap is only put on the SPD versions of shoes because it secures the foot when pulling up on the pedals. You can't do that on flats, so it is not required. I've never had an issue with laces on flat pedal shoes, but living in the UK I wouldn't consider using a shoe without a lace cover. This both keeps splashes of water out of my shoes and keeps the laces clean/tidy/tied.

Spot Mayhem 29 - Review
Pyga Stage Max is worth a look too. Designed by Patrick Morewood. Love mine and I've never needed to use the lockout. Takes 2 full-size (1 litre) water bottles inside the front triangle too.

There's a Fine Line Between Clever and Stupid - Opinion
@StevieJB: A steeper seat angle is better for pedalling. In MTB you generally don't need to worry about aerodynamics like you do in Road, so sitting more upright isn't such a negative. If it's not slack enough for you, there is a good 3-4 degrees difference in your saddle rails, not to mention several dropper posts have a lay-back head design (Specialneeds Command post for example). There are numerous options for slackening seated position if you like to feel like you're pedalling a recumbant, but you're limited when trying to steepen. Furthermore, a slack seat angle for a tall rider is double bad as all your weight is over the rear axle, making the front end light when climbing, as the on trend short chainstays designed around short arses.

Pole Bicycles Announces New CNC-Machined 'Machine' - Press Release
My Pyga Stage Max gets two 1 Litre bottles inside the main triangle. The first look article ( https://www.pinkbike.com/news/pyga-stage-max-eurobike-2015.html ) got quite a bit of excitement. Been hoping for a full review of this bike (with decent tyres on) since, to find pinkbike's opinion of my bike!
