Staff Rides - Mike Levy's Rocky Mountain Element
Good read. Every bike I've owned the last 5 years have had the same brakes and grips - Zee's and Sensus Swayze's (or similar ODI lock on grips). So sick bruh... Good thoughts there re pushing the limits of a trail bike too. I had a GT Distortion as a trail bike a few summers back. It was a bit of a "between bikes" bike as I was looking for a super awesome quiver killer. 114mm of rear travel and I think 140mm up front. It was awesome. I punished that little bike and it was really fun at bike parks. I would've kept it if it weren't for the pivots coming loose now and then... And at the risk of being banned from Pinkbike for 2313879 hours, I'm going to admit that I run a 2x drivetrain on my enduro bike.

First time I've ever been disappointed by the performance of a Saint crank. Bring Back the banana bol, or at least last weeks grip!

A Brief History of Formula's Disc Brakes
@WAKIdesigns: Yep. Old Saints were great. Had them on my DH/Freeride bike a few years ago, then some low life stole it...

A Brief History of Formula's Disc Brakes
@WAKIdesigns: I had a similar experience with R0's. They came on a trail bike I bought a few years ago. Ended up taking them off and replacing with a Shimano Deore set. Was a huge upgrade. I even remember having a rant on an "all hail the great a powerful Formula" article that was written around that time that was not dissimilar to the one above...

Team Chain Reaction Cycles Partners With Mavic For 2017
@jordanneedsafork: That link doesn't work in New Zealand bol. Same as when Chain Reaction have a sale on Kona. I guess there's some sort of exclusive rights thing going on with these brands and their NZ distributors?

Snapshot: A View of Women's Mountain Biking From the Industry
@WAKIdesigns: Interesting that you can have so much respect for interior designers, but still choose to call your technicians cad monkeys... Further proof that maybe this is a heirarchy issue, not a sex issue...
