Field Test: Firebird 29 vs Spartan 29 vs Ransom
A bike with Boost is favored over two bikes with Super Boost? Maybe this puts an end to the Super Boost nonsense.

Handlebar Width vs Handling - Are Your Bars Too Wide?
Damn, those are some thorough stats. Are these readily available somewhere, and if so, how does someone find them? Two counterpoints: 1: pros are stronger than the average rider, so they can ride narrower bars, which in turn allows for more precise control. I wonder if somewhat wider bars could be beneficial for the casual rider that wields their bike like a bludgeon instead of a scalpel. 2: local terrain matters when choosing bars. If you ride in areas with less trees, wider bars might be better, but if you ride trails with tight clearance of trailside trees, it’s better to opt for narrower bars to avoid clipping every tree and pinballing down the trail.

Pinkbike Awards: Mountain Bike of the Year Nominees
I was between the SB130 and the ripmo and I went with the ripmo because threaded BB and bushings. Yes, I consider bushings a feature, not a glitch. I prefer less maintenance over a slight performance advantage all day long.

Review: Yeti's New SB100
Can someone explain why the reach is shorter and the seat tube angle is slacker compared to modern trail bike geo? For reference, the reach on the SB100 is 28mm shorter and STA is 2.9 degrees slacker compared to the SB130.

Review: Yeti's New SB100
There's plenty of single pivot XC bikes out there. If Yeti is targeting the person what wants a bike that can handle XC and trail duties, but not excel at either, this makes sense.

First Ride: Yeti’s New SB150
Anyone else worried about hitting the shock stanchion every time you pull out the water bottle? And yes, they finally give us a bottle mount and I'm still finding something to complain about.
