What's In a World Cup Mechanic's Toolbox?
I use the same lube. Does that make mean I'm fast?

Riding Rocky Mountain's 2018 Altitude - First Ride
I have a 2015 cheapo Altitude. At the time, I think it was one of the best sub-3k full-suspension bikes on the market. Last year I put a Pike on the front end and added a dropper. This year I put wider tubeless rims and a 1x11 drivetrain. As it stands right now, my 2015 is just as good as the new alloy 70, minus my rear shock but even that I really don't think is that bad. It gets the job done and it's certainly not holding me back.

Riding Rocky Mountain's 2018 Altitude - First Ride
Damn, that bike looks sexy. I'm still loving my 2015 alu Altitude and I would consider it anything but 'ho-hum', but I also don't get the chance to review all of the competition each year. I really like the looks of the new Alloy 70. Unless you have 5k to spend, I'd take that any day over a similarly price carbon frame with a lower end build kit.

Another New Standard? Here Comes Boost 20x110
People get so butt hurt on this site. No ones making you buy anything. If your old stuff works fine than keep riding it. If you need a new bike, fork, wheel, whatever then buy it. If you're buying something and worried about the resale value, then why are you buying it in the first place?

Another New Standard? Here Comes Boost 20x110
@zede: That used to be true. Boot/binding compatibility has turned into a shit storm with the popularity of AT boots and bindings. ISO 5355, ISO 9523, GripWalk, WTR... If these terms mean nothing to you as a skier, than that's exactly my case in point. Most ski consumers have no idea of the different standards currently on the market so they walk into the shop to get their new skis mounted but they have bindings and boots that aren't compatible. Also, there are a ton of proprietary parts in the industry. Buckles are rarely compatible across different brands and you sure has hell don't want to lose the boot board in your boot because those change constantly and you can only get them from the manufacturer. Race skis often can only be mounted with a specific brand of bindings.

2018 Fox 36 - First Ride
Makes perfect sense really. Here and a few other sites have their first looks/impressions posted a few days before Sea Otter to build interest. Just about every manufacture brings out new stuff for Sea Otter, but it's usually months before it hits the market. Pros and industry folks like PinkBike will continue to use and abuse the new product all summer in hopes of building good hype for the full product launch.

X-Fusion Sweep RL2 Fork - Review
This fork came stock on my Rocky Mtn Altitude. I would have happily kept running it but I got an offer I couldn't refuse for a Pike upgrade. For full-suspension bikes in the +/- $3k range, this fork is a fairly common stock offering along with the non-Kashima 34s or Pike RCs, and so I'd say the reviews comparison to those models is fair, but if you wan't all the bells and whistles of adjustment and whatnot, the top of the line from any of these manufactures are hard to beat. Having got my Pike dialed in now, I'd say I feel a little more comfortable at my top speeds and on rough terrain than I did with the Sweep but the differences are subtle as the review says
