First Ride: Rocky Mountain's 2024 Altitude Has a Completely Revised Frame Design
@luckynugget: I too, am pretty upset that everything keeps going mullet. I really enjoy the playful small wheels. Almost all trail bikes now are 29er or MX for M and L frame sizes. Bummed the 5010 went MX and doesn't have some way to keep 27.5. not everybody just wants to plow trails!

First Ride: Auckland Cycle Works Marra Prototype with KOLARP Suspension
@blackthorne: I agree - seems like shock stroke isn't the core of the issue. It is always good to test new things and I think it is great to get the info out. There might be some changes that will make the concept fulfill a niche, but it isn't there yet, it would seem.

Pinkbike Editors' Christmas 2023 Wish Lists
@thustlewhumber: These trends tend to come and go in circles a bit... I hope they bring some shorter-travel, small-wheeled bikes back. Start.advertising bikes that pop and corner fast. The big wheels are faster but 90% of riders don't race. Banshee Spitfire looks pretty tempting. But that will probs get mullet-ed at some point.

Pinkbike Editors' Christmas 2023 Wish Lists
I want more playful 120-140 mm travel 27.5" bikes. Not mullet. Not many options for that category...

SaddleSpur’s New Saddle, Presented Without Comment of Any Sort
So. Jokes aside. What made them, a company presumably wanting to make money, do this? How does this help one ride their bike?

Video: How Posture Affects Your Bike Performance
@stefanfresh: So one of the main things was keeping my shoulder blades pulled down while riding. It took a bit of getting used to, but on descents I noticed more control with my steering and felt less likely to collapse towards my bars, particularly on technical places. The other big thing was breathing into my chest instead of into my stomach. It kind of forces my shoulder blades down, but it also forces some good posture while climbing. It made my breaths feel more full and it also, paired with the shoulders, made me less likely to wobble while riding uphill. I think slouching and breathing into my belly really caused a lot of my steer wobble on climbs.

Video: How Posture Affects Your Bike Performance
I injured my shoulder (un-bike related) and went to PT for 6 weeks and got a bunch of posture feedback and implementing it on my bike made me feel a lot more controlled, especially my arm position on descents. Also noticed that it opened up my breathing on climbs and kept my heart rate a bit lower.

Pinkbike Poll: Metric vs Imperial - Which Do You Prefer For Measuring Bikes?
@southoftheborder: I am pretty sure it was actually the freezing point of a brine solution. Ethanol freezing temp is something like -170 F or higher if mixed with water.
