2018 Specialized Turbo Levo FSR Carbon - First Look
Well PB, here's the dilemma. Your viewers hate ebikes, but if you ignore them you lose a big share of the market. What's it going to be?

Commencal Supreme SX - 180mm All-Mountain Bike With HPP Suspension System
Yep I think it's tolerances etc, I've never had issues with PF on different bikes (original PF going strong in my 3y old (only bike) spectral). And clearance... Cf meta HT cromo. The CS couldn't be where they are with threaded

Commencal Supreme SX - 180mm All-Mountain Bike With HPP Suspension System
The reach has exploded! Also, why the hpp should be good for this bike (a benefit that's not needed with the DH) : on climbs the sag is more 45% than 30%, putting that rearward going wheel far enough back where it belongs!

1 Question - What's Going on With 27.5+?
My 2.35 MM is 61mm and a 2.6 MM fits in the 63 +- 2mm range? WTF? Cf Julian Wagner's answer. Does the internet already host a list of real tire sizes? For example on a 25mm rim, a 2.5 maxxis is 56mm and a 2.35 MM is 61mm...

Propain Releases New Full Suspension Kids Bike With Multiple Wheel Size Options
@ka-brap: I disagree, many components are the same price for different toughness. For example cheap 500g rimes exist as much as cheap 700g rims, and the point is that the lighter ones will be enough for kids. My gf is 55kg, I'm 95kg, yet the most part of our components are as solid.. meaning unnecessarily heavy for her, and in some cases not durable for me (her bike is just 2kg lighter...). I know it would be hard for brands to spec the 500g rims for XS size and then the 700g ones for the XL, but it's annoying that I have to buy a 140mm bike to get strong enough parts for my XC riding. Same problem for kids here.

Propain Releases New Full Suspension Kids Bike With Multiple Wheel Size Options
Genuinely wondering here, as I suppose they've given a lot of thought into this but it doesn't make sense to me. Piggyback necessary for 40-50kg riders? Geo : from 140 to 190cm, I suppose all my body approximately grew up equally, meaning my torso/arms/leg etc ratios are not so different, so why so extreme numbers? Example : 190/140=1.36. So this bike is as if I should have one with 553x1.36=752mm stack (even visually it's evident that kids can't have a normal posture on this bike). The piggyback etc result in a 12.3kg bike. It's as if I had a 20kg bike. Doesn't seem too difficult to adapt frame thickness, rims etc to lighter riders? I mean, ok CS for example is impossible to make very short, but why did Propain CHOOSE a 110mm heat tube length and a piggyback shock?

Guerrilla Gravity Debuts "Smash" 29er
429mm even for XL bikes? If so then the SA should be steepened even more on big sizes to avoid falling over in climbs. It's good to see this SA question brought up, it's frustrating to hear "just slam your saddle forward" when asking for steep actual seat angles... It's not the same.

Megavalanche 2017: Saturday Racing - Photo Epic
I'm not going to comment on e-bikes place in the MTB world, but criticizing without knowing is just stupid. No, you don't need an e-bike for this. The e-bikes, once they have finished the normal complete run, have to climb back from Allemont.

Scott Genius 2018 - First Ride
And apart from personal preferences, there's one thing to point out : the genius doesn't​ have only a lockout, it reduces travel as well. I don't know about the react etc, but for a given sag %, the more travel you have the more the angles get fucked up uphill and down hill : the HA slackens in climbs because your weight is on the back, and it steepens on the downs with the weight on the front (+ braking). Do we want a 180mm bike, 65° static HA, having 62° uphill and 68° downhill? But I guess this point is not so important, considering how Shape shifter etc don't have success
