Does It Matter Where Your Bike Was Built? - Pinkbike Poll
Would love a domestically produced bike. I wanted to go the carbon route this time and I think that only leaves the Alcemy Arktos. They sound awesome but are really expensive. Ended up ordering a new rocky mtn altitude from my Lbs. In the end I really just wanted to support my local shop. I'm

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Remember Your First 'Real' Mountain Bike?
89 specialized hard rock. My LBS loved me. I spent all my grocery bagging paychecks on upgrades to it. I remember buying every new tire Tioga came out with looking for the perfect tire. Sold it way to cheap for a snowboard.

OneUp Shark 50T Sprocket Kit - Review
Yup. Call it the "Colorado conversion." Guys with Sram 1x11 are running 28 teeth up front to grunt up high altitude climbs. Some are saying 1x11 is not a true mtb option unless you don't mind walking. I'd rather be able to peddle than walk a climb any day. There is little need to peddle while descending in my neck of the woods. I could care less about spinning out at speed. Definitely interested in this set up. I could see that cage taking a beating though!

Enduro vs Trailbike: Marriage and Divorce - Opinion
I've been thinking the same thing RC! I'm on a 10' nomad with a 36 talas etc. I love my ride! I can drop the front and flick the switch on my dhx and it scoots up hill. I can't imagine wanting anything bigger than 160 for the trails I ride in colorado. I'm looking at a new bike and am so confused! So do I want a 16' nomad or something similar? We have long steep chunky descents around here. Would I be happier on a " trail" or " all mtn" bike for most of my rides? I do feel myself wishing for something lighter for the 1000 ft climbs above 8000 ft I normally do. Now you throw all these killer mid travel 29ers in the mix! I'm gonna spend a small fortune demoing all the bikes I want to try at $80 a day! Really curious to ride a rocky mtn altitude and a remedy 29. I never go to the bike park so do I want that new nomad?! Or maybe the 16' Bronson would suite me better? Or would the 5010 feel more nimble and sporty? Or do I really want a high tower?? It's maddening!!! Was an easy answer in 2010!

Remedy is lighter than the following is it not? Seems they both go up and down crazy well. The new stumpy 29 is right there too. Id opt for the lightest rig I could.
