Tech Briefing: Limited Edition Bikes & Saddles, Carbon Wheels & More
@tom666: Not unpopular at all but good luck trying to convince the marketing/sales department of any of these large companies that they don't need a new color/name/model every year. I think it speaks more to a general critique on modern society that A) Companies are considered unsuccessful if they don't grow EVERY YEAR and B) Us as humans feel the need to upgrade stuff even when we have something that is perfectly fine, even great. I look at a company like Bike Yoke and wish more companies followed their model. They don't update just to update, all of their improvement are genuine improvements on the existing products to fill a need in the marketplace. They also make a product that is bulletproof AND easy to service AND is the best in class. But I guarantee that if an investor got involved none of that stuff would be good enough, they'd only be concerned about how much growth the company had year over year. Someone recently coined the term "Enshitification" to describe how online platforms die over time, and I think it holds true to a lot of companies as well.

@jakemcab: LOL, pretty rough year out here on the west coast so far. Hope you don't mind dodging rocks and trees on your way down

Dario DiGiulio's 2024 Predictions
@valrock: LOL, it pedals up just fine. First ride was a little over 3K feet of elevation gain on my thanksgiving day ride. Wish I had some of these gondolas and chairlifts that you speak of :)

RockShox Trek Race Team Disbands, Confirms Rumour That Vali Höll Will Be On New Team for 2024
Actually laughed at this line "Its legacy, etched in the racetracks, podiums, and titles, symbolizes the union of youth and glory." Uhhhh, yeah I don't think anyone is going to be sitting around in a decade going "Hey remember when Trek/Rockshox had a DH team for 2 years!? Wow, what a legacy that was!!!"

Dario DiGiulio's 2024 Predictions
Just swapped over from a Santa Cruz hightower to a Reeb Sqweeb with all of the things you mentioned and I freaking love it so far. Added a coil on the back cuz I got tired of screwing with the X2 on my last bike. Rides like a dream and the maintenance is a breeze.

@willis1021: That was a great book. It was pretty funny trying to explain that one to my wife though... "so you have these spiders and ants right...." (as she falls asleep of boredom)

First Look: The Unno Ikki is a Stealth Electric Enduro Bike
They kind of seem like the equivalent to a Maserati. The looks are kinda cool, but goofy from some angles. The performance is OK-ish, but definitely not as good as others in the same price range. Probably depreciates like crazy when you buy one.

That was painful to watch... I know CX people are gluttons for punishment but that doesn't even seem like a bike race. You'd be better off strapping the bike to your back and just running the whole thing.

Supurb Launches Bo24+ Kids MTB
Yeah this is a slick looking bike, would definitely be on my list if offered in the US. FWIW I just got my 6 YO son a 24" Cleary, the fork and components aren't as nice as this one (also no dropper) but its a real mountain bike and doesn't break the bank.

Support San Diego Trails & Chance To Win A Specialized Turbo Levo
Yeah seems like the housing developers have had no problem clearing and leveling large tracts of land... guess endangered plants/animals only matter for some.
