I ride bikes sometimes not half bad.

Review: Devinci Troy Carbon 29
Agreed, can't help notice a huge level of bias towards the 29er versions of bikes this year. Good if that's your preference but personally I want to hear how the 27.5 versions ride as that's what I'd be buying e.g. Can't help but notice how much more awesome the new Ransom looks in it's 27.5 version - chuck an X2 on that and I'd be sold!

Should the Derailleur Die? Zerode's Gearbox-Equipped Taniwha - Review
@Rembrandt: you're entitled to your opinion, as is Mike, as am I. I maintain my 180mm Capra would be my pick for difficult terrain over any other enduro style bike, and over some DH bikes. If you doubt me pick up the recent edition of NZ Mountainbiker...

The Summertime Cast Blues
@iamamodel Hoorah for universal healthcare! I just did the exact same thing, unfortunately for the second time - I've had a plate installed along my radius in 2016, removed in April, and now another installed a few months later... and it all cost nothing! Funnily enough though, first time they plated it I was in a full arm cast for 5 weeks, this time I'm in a light brace and able to use my arm more-or-less freely after 3 weeks - the brace by comparison is a godsend. I definitely sit centre-right (yay capitalisim!), but universal healthcare is awesome. I don't mind covering Joe Trailer-trash, because us as mountain bikers often aren't much better at making smart decisions...

First Ride: 2019 Giant Trance 29
@jclnv: Ha! I was hoping someone would bring up the awful Trance X29.. It's pretty much the current one, except after being involved in a head on collision with a brick wall. I'm not surprised it's taken them this long to make another, given how bad the first one was.

YT Launches Limited Edition Play Slopestyle Bike
It takes 6 months at least to organise new production, so no point trying to make more 2018 models when 2019 bikes will be getting prep'd for production now.

Women's Round Up - Sea Otter 2018
DHaRCO rocks, there's no sexism when most of the design with flamingos, feathers or flowers on both the womens and the mens! Wicked comforable too!

Spotted: New YT Tues - LoĊĦinj DH World Cup 2018
Hold out just a little longer, the new range is closer than you think, and spec and colours are sick!

Should the Derailleur Die? Zerode's Gearbox-Equipped Taniwha - Review
@Murdoch-the-Horse-Fracker: I'm going to have to go against the grain here and support Mike as while I haven't personally ridden the Taniwha his comments do reflect a lot of what I've heard from many owners and people who have test ridden the bike. I know Rob takes much pride in his work (as he should) but this reply, and particularly to attack Mike personally is entirely uncalled for. The Taniwha while incredibly clever has flaws inherent to its gearbox, deal with it. And for what it's worth, no disservice to the Taniwha, but my Capra will out climb and out descend this bike (it has 180mm of well engineered suspension), and it weighs closer to 28lbs.

Giant Factory Off-Road Team Reveals 2018 Bikes
Is it just me, or did DVO make that Glory significantly cooler?

Devinci's Wilson 29er Can't Be Bought (For Now Anyway...)
I have to agree, to date I still haven't seen a single shred of evidence that actual pro level racers are faster on 29 - maybe not slower, but no DH or EWS racer on a decent 29er has dominated the way they claim the bikes should.
