Rose Bikes Stops Selling Bikes in the UK Due to Brake Lever Laws
I wish Rose Bikes the worst. This is exactly what they deserve. I remember bending a steerer tube on a brand new fork, they made me send it to them to tell me I did it on pourpose with extreme violence, and this wasn't covered. Of course I damaged the headtube when the fork bent and paid for the delivery twice. Imagine my joy... If they're not able to switch cables and bleed the brakes to open to the uk market this says a lot...f*** rose bikes.

First Look: The Cassidy is Salsa's Most Aggressive Bike Yet
Please watch your ''needs longer chainstays'' comments because they have their effect in future bikes. Bikes are getting longer and longer in the rear too. For instance take the kona process 153. For this year they increased chainstay length. Please, stop it. I've been switching between a frame with 443 mm and other with 426 mm chainstays... Everytime I rode the longer one, chainstays felt seriously stupid, I think most of you don't really know what you are talking about with real experience. Chainstays should be as short as possible considering bikes are getting longer and longer. How do you plan to raise the front end? This bike has short chainstays, but it is starting to be difficult to find new bikes with short chainstays. Shredders have their right to have the right bike too, not only the ocassional downhill champion wanabe that wants the bike to roll down everything from top to bottom in a straight line (29er super long reach, super long chainstays, super long travel...). When 27.5 dies, I'm quitting mountainbiking, seriously... Please, try to avoid this comments and let designers design without the pressure of sells and trends...

Look Introduces New Trail Roc MTB Flat Pedals
I like this design better because it saves weight and reduces "virtual" chainstay length, so you can put your feet more in the middle of the pedal which means less ankle pain from very harsh landings (ankle impignement)

2021 GT Bikes Highlights - Across the Pond Beaver
@TannerValhouli: Wouldn't they win in a Playschool® bike as long as they paid them more than gt? Sorry, I just don't get it. If it was a consequence of the design and you was told to win something in other aspects I would understand, but look at the shock stroke, or better don't.... I wouldn't ever buy this bike no matter how many races it wins...the old sanction had it's problems, but had it's own soul, at least it was different and looked like a weapon, they should have updated that design in my opinion.

@shami: Cutties are like whips, they look easy but I don't think they"re easy to MASTER. Lots of balance and body and bike control involved if we are honest. For me they came naturally without trying too hard, but they took soo long and I'm still improving them. Now they feel more natural than railing a corner and i'd swear they're as fast if not faster depending on the corner. Some racers say the fastest line choice is always the shortest one. Kids learn so fast, it's another case. Disrespectful to me would be riding and not digging, or digging and not smashing the track. Imagine a mx rider thinking of circuit maintenance when riding, trying to do the less damage possible or a snowboarder trying to do open corners to keep the track clean. That would be ridiculous, right? We are here for fun. Riders with a trayectory in dh are quitting racing for this kind of stuff because it's so rad and so fun to do. Mountainbiking resembles surfing a mountain more than ever and to me, it couldn't have taken a better direction.

In my opinion cutties and scrubs are the two greatest things that has happened to recent mountainbiking. They feel like surfing a wave. I'm personally tired of neon racing gear, weekend warriors timing themselves all the time, strava, racing discussion, tech discussion...MTB should be fun. I have heard this same complaint before and it always comes from people who can't do cutties. The excuses are always the same: speed, trail maintenance....makes me mad...

The Complete 2021 Rocky Mountain Altitude Lineup Compared - Across the Pond Beaver
@vaedwards: Is there any difference between deore and xt apart from weigth? I always go for deore...to me xt means same function, a bit less weight, a lot less durability. Who rides xtr? Not even pro's!... I can't get how people put their attention to transmission components so much...It's an enduro bike!!!!. How long until the tansmission starts working like crap??? My first month of a new bike is always like: hanger and derailleur cages put back into place manually , upper and lower limit screws re-set in consequence, derailleur starts developing play. Plastic jockey wheels don't look like new at all... I don't really know where the problem comes from but the fact is that the bike shifts like shit most of the time...Early cassette, chain and chainring wear... Maybe I exagerated a bit, but if you ride hard, or in a rocky terrain you sure know what I mean... For instance take cranks. XT's are hollow and break, deore's are ok. The only difference noticeable for me in shimano's line from deore to xt is in brakes, but I'm stuck in 10 speed. Maybe new components are different....

2021 GT Bikes Highlights - Across the Pond Beaver
Still tall seat tubes and tall sandover in all models...why do they do that? Nobody rides there at gt? Wouldn't they be selling twice as much if they had it corrected?? Now they don't have that sanction suspension design, what's the excuse???

Pinkbike Poll: Which Alternative Suspension Manufacturer Has the Best Chance of Challenging RockShox and Fox's OE Dominance?
For x-fusion the answer is easy...their products are perfect, but if you service them yourself, you void warranty.
