Now THAT Was a Bike: 2016 Pole Evolink
@ironhorse-rider: this, exactly this. I remember having my Transition Scout serviced sometime in 2019, and the lbs loaned me a Pole Evolink demo bike in the meanwhile. While I loved my Scout, the Evolink was just so much more capable. I was (and am) a pretty slow rider, but I felt like I’d unlocked a few cheat codes while riding on it. However, even then I remember being weirded out by how Pole was run. They’d just brought out the Machine a while ago, then the Stamina like a year after. Which ofcourse looked great on paper and even rode wonderfully when I demoed one, but didn’t feel like participating in public beta testing. Which of course turned out to be a great decision in hindsight. Shame really, had the potential to be great bikes.

First Look: 2024 Commencal Meta SX V5
@Muscovir: Carbon frames shouldn't be much of a selling point though. But yeah, Commencal doesn't seem to be trying to compete with other DTC brands when it comes to pricing anymore. If they don't have to, good on them. The frame prices are dumb, but I do think the 4500€ Essential (or the 4100€ Meta 29 essential) model seems like a pretty good deal all in all, way more appealing than either Propain Tyee or Canyon's Torque. Tyee has cable tourism (and while looks are highly subjective, I do kinda hate the look of Propain's suspension layout) and the Torque has stupidly short chainstays. Only heard praise for the previous generation of Meta SX as well and the geometry seems to be pretty bang-on. Thinking I'll sell my current bike and get one.

Sixpack Announces New Internal Cable Routing System
I do love the way the term cable tourism has made it's way already into press releases. It's kinda like Orwell said, “It's a beautiful thing, the destruction of words.” Headset routing as a term is on it's way out, soon the actual routing will follow.

First Ride: Devinci's Chainsaw is a Canadian-Made Park Ripper
Goddamnit, absolutely love this at first glance, can't wait for proper reviews. I'm so tempted to get the DH model, swap the drivetrain to XT and put a dropper on it.

@TwoNGlenn: Andor was absolutely amazing though, best SW since Empire strikes back.

First Ride: 2023 Canyon Neuron
Just the worst. Could we just fast-forward a few years of development to get rid of this garbage?

Maybe someone should take a look at the financials of Contra bikes as well!

Shimano Consolidates Entry- to Mid-Level Groupsets With New CUES Drivetrains
@TranceAllez: I dunno, I currently have 12spd XT on my bike (Tallboy, so not exactly an entry level bike either) and I'm pretty tempted to go back to 11 or even 10 speed if the promises about Linkglide's shift smoothess etc hold water.
