January 2018 - Good Month or Bad Month?
Looks like a few people disagree with my comment. Fair call. I will do some research to see if i just misread some tech info out on the web. Cheers all.

Apparently, you cant turn off the Strava heat map function. No matter what private settings you select. Check out previous pinkbike Strava articles for more info

Mike VS Mike: How We'd Spend Our Money - Video
Just purchased a Transitional Sentinal NX this month. In Oz, it came to $4700 delivered after taxes. ( Im thinking PB may be discussing in US dollars, as that is there largest target audience? ) Im happy so far with the NX groupset, that came with this bike. The NX derailers clutch an spring feel significantly heavier duty over my previous shamino set ups. (Xt/XTR.. .closer to a old saint spring tension feel) The derailer even survived a large crash and slide down a boulder rock face last week (which ground down the face of the derailer, steel for the win!) Ps: I did changed over my saint brakes before riding, as they always get swapped onto my new steads.

Here's My Zerode Taniwha Test Bike - Tell Me What You Want to Know
I have been saving $$$ for one of these Zerodes, when the Transition Sentinal came along an took my money. Picked up the Sentinal 3wks ago, and its a beast! (16kg out of the box , with no pedals. It feels fast, but some how very calming on track when pointed down hill in anger ) Questions regarding the Zerode- - Is the grip shift chunky in the hand, and does it make hard to reach the brake lever? (Looks like long TRP levers might help ) - Can you test it with a 29ner front wheel and fork? Rumours indicate, it performs very well with this mod. - Will there be a 29ner version in the future? Once it goes 29inch/ rapid thumb shifter / 6-8 speed wide ratio box i might start saving again. Till then.. .. Braap, braap!

Hope Cuts Price on Made-in-England Carbon Bike
@ThomDawson: .. .. I believe that currently under our Australian constitution, the Queen can disolve our elected parliament via her Aussie Governer General. A power which she used once before 40 years ago. So will are still under the royals thumb.

Stan's is Auctioning Off Kyle Strait's (Unused) Custom Rampage Wheelset for NICA
@zulki-fly: Yes, i think your right about the spoke tension being too high on the initial build. As I was regularly checking both my wheels after fitting, waiting for the traditional new wheel loosening to occur. It never happened, so i just assumed the rim was extra tough or i was getting soft.

@seismicninja: Dont get too excited about that build combo. My CRC Hope pro4 /mk3 flow rear wheel build didnt last a year, before developing rim cracks on every nipple hole on the drive side. Currently orginising a box, to send it across the world for inspection at CRC. ( im 70kg geared up, an it was on a 150mm trail bike/ with no bike park action) Fingers X.

Pinion Gearbox to Enter US and Canada
I sometimes wonder if Pinion may be receiving some sort of yearly "retainer/incentive" from shimano/ sram to not develop a trigger shifter $$$$. As they sure seem to be dragging the chain, on this one.

Why Pinkbike is Covering eMTBs This Week
I agree, manufactures will be trying to out gun each other in 4-5 years time. And people will hack/chip/ jailbreak there motors for more power. Do people think that Park Rangers an Police, will carry around a list of legal low power ebikes vs hyper power models? No, the authorities will just ban all bikes on trails, as it will be much easier to manage. People who like riding Ebikes, actually just like riding low powered motor cycles. I have, and yes its kinda fun, but they are motor cycles .... Just really slow ones. KTM currently make a silent 22hp Ebike, just without the pedals. Cant wait to test one ( Ktm freeride E-XC)
