Spotted: Is This a New Specialized Status?
I'm curious as to whether they're considering a "Scion" like offshoot given that it's clearly branded "Status" and not Specialized. Specialized is about the least BMX/alternative bike maker out there, so they might want to open up their market a bit.

That sounds great. Could you give a bit more feedback on how it differs in ride feel from your Whyte?

Video: Duncan Shaw & Danny MacAskill Take on a 30 Metre Slackline
@AdamC86: I think slacklines are great training tools. I always feel that my feet, ankles, and all the little muscles in my legs get worked in a way that most activities never do until you need them. Plus its good for your core in general. First time I was on a slackline I'd gone out to visit my brother and ski and he left brother 2 and I home the first day while he had to work. There was a slackline in the backyard (maybe 12-15m) and brother 2 and I obviously had to be able to one up the working brother by the time he got home. The next day, every supporting muscle in our lower legs were so sore we could barely ski. ha

Field Trip: 8 Value Bikes Hucked to Flat in Super Slow Mo
@rockhopper70: He didn't say it was bigger, just more controllable. With a drop, you're hitting the same max height every time. With a jump, there is going to be variation on max height each time depending on how much speed you hit it with and how much pop you get off the lip. Even a good rider will have variation.

Now Finished: Ask Us Anything with Giro
I have/like the Switchblade, but I agree that it is not the coolest helmet. I wear it a lot in shoulder season just because it keeps my head notably warmer than other helmets, even with the chin bar off. I too would be interested in an even better vented version when I wear/dent this one out.

Review: RAAW Madonna V2 - Ready for the Apocalypse
@shlotch: I think it really depends on the region. Tyee isn't available in the US, but the Hugene Performance is 3642 euros (with 20% VAT included!) and $5199 in the US without tax. The Tyee isn't available here yet, so I can't directly compare it to the Madonna, but if the price gap is the same, the aluminum Tyee Performance (which is most similar in spec to the Madonna) might actually be more expensive as it runs 3.664,00€ now.

With the lower pricepoint of these bikes, it's amazing that the quality control was good enough that none of them appeared to have prototype XC rear triangles affixed.

Review: RAAW Madonna V2 - Ready for the Apocalypse
@jpnbrider: in the US, the frame isn't a super bargain, but the Factory Build with XT is actually really price competitive.

@Huskr84: Thanks! If I end up getting two bikes, the RAAW seems the perfect for the big bike role.
