Review: Specialized Stumpjumper EVO 29
What's with the L/XL bikes now? Us tall guys need the full XL reach, otherwise the bike looks rad!

The Evolution of Kona Bikes: Part I - Video
@scottiemac: close, but only the 27.5 is available as a frameset... it also comes with a solid parts spec. the best 9er comes with the yari, 11spd, and a lot of other stuff to be replaced.

The Evolution of Kona Bikes: Part I - Video
Kona, please make an aluminum (or carbon I guess) 153 9er with a decent suspension spec! The Yari just isn't doing it!! So ready to retire my clapped out 134 and don't want to swap a bunch of new parts. Or you could just offer the 153 9er frameset....

1up USA Quik Rack - Review
@BaeckerX1: wrong. When you drive uphill the normal force supporting the rack separates into horizontal and vertical components. There are absolutely forces working to pull the rack out of the receiver. The friction between the rack and receiver is not a reliable factor of safety. Would be interesting to hear the designer try to justify this design.

1up USA Quik Rack - Review
@BaeckerX1: The force of gravity combined with vertical accelerations of the rack (momentary unloading of the rack) would be more than enough to walk the rack out of the receiver on a long uphill drive, especially a bumpy logging/shuttle road. There is no fail safe to ensure that the wedge is properly tightened and the rack is secure. Except the Velcro strap (a cover your ass band aid). I'm sitting at a trail head and the car next to me has a 1up rack and the strap isn't there.

1up USA Quik Rack - Review
Opinions and one lucky experience don't make up for design flaws on safety critical parts. I'm surprised it's legal to sell this.

1up USA Quik Rack - Review
It's a bad design not using a hitch pin! (velcro strap is a BS substitute) any issue with the expanding wedge, even dirty threads, could lead to the rack falling off.

Gore Pro Jacket - Review
I understand the price, I have some goretex pro ski apparel and the stuff works. However, I'd never spend $500 on a MTB jacket. I retire my old rain shells to MTB use and typically wind up ripping a hole in them within the first few rides. Ripping a new $500 shell would just hurt too much!
