FSA's New Dropper Post - Interbike 2017
@RedRedRe: Innovative usually means expensive, and that does not appeal to the 16-24 age group.

Yamaha to Launch Their Own eMTB Lineup
Can we stop calling these things motorcycles, dirt bikes etc? Speaking as someone who rides motorcycles, we want nothing to do with these either.

Knolly Warden Medium

$3600 USD
Hey, you remember All Mountain? That time after Freeride but before Enduro? You know, we rode up, we rode down, we jumped off stuff. Good times were had. If you're ever wondering where it went, it's right here, in the fucking Warden. This bike is the best I've ever been on for climbs that look more like boulder fields than flow trails. If you're dream ride involves roots and rocks, this is the right bike for you. On the descents, it always has a lot of pop. Even if you're plowing through a rock garden, with your ass all the way off the back, the Warden is still ready to hit whatever dumb jump you find along the way. This thing has helped me through some of my sketchiest doubles and dumbest tech moves. I like Enduro and all, it's fine, and if you're into that, the Warden will do it. Move the shock mount from Neutral to Slack, and you have a bonified race sled. It looses a little playfullness, but makes up for it in not having to care about line choices. You really can just smash your way through anything. God bless coil shocks. Knolly Warden Alloy Medium Fox 36 - RC2 w/ 15mm Axle Fox DHX2 Coil w/ lockout Fox Transfer Post w/ Wolftooth Lever Industry Nine Enduro Pillar Carbon XTR Cranks w/ Rotor Q Ring Chris King Bottom Bracket Saint Brakes XT Cassette, Derailleur and chain Raceface SixC bars - 785mm This thing is in great shape, with the exception of the heel rub. The fork was just serviced, with new seals, bath oil and a damper bleed. The drivetrain and tires are basically new, as it only has one ride on it. I've got an extra carbon rim and spokes for you to have as back up, and will include two alloy Enduro 305 rims as well. I also have a ton of extra 27.5 tires, that I had intended for this bike, Schwalbe MM + RR, Bontrager SE 5's and Minions. You'll basically inherit half of my garage with purchase of this bike. Shipping is included in the price, and let me know if you'd like additional pictures or details

Tippie Rides Rotor's R-Hawk Crank System
This is a pretty similar system to a lot of BMX cranks, and those hold up to way dumber stuff. So, hopefully good?

Sue Haywood is still fast, that's pretty damn amazing.

2018 Specialized Epic - First Ride
@Primoz: They call it the Fu Manchu linkage, since the yolk drops down around the seat tube like the mustache. I believe the actual patent is on the upper portion of the the rocker link, the joins both he shock yolk and seatstays.

2018 Specialized Epic - First Ride
@enrico650: The FSR patent is more like 25 different patents, all dealing with different aspects of how and where pivots are placed, only one of which involves the Horst link. They started expiring around 10 years ago, although with every model, someone on the internet brings up the "recent" expiration. There's a lot more that goes into a bike than one pivot or patent, and it's worth looking at the bike as a whole, to see what they're trying to do.

Emil Johansson's Trek Ticket S - Bike Check
It also functions as a chain tensioner, which you'll need as the bike's chain length will grow and shrink depending on where the bike is in it's travel.

Specialized Announces Custom Stumpjumper Program
Broth-Fatgut is right, the reason they don't offer budget friendly models as a standalone frame, is because it'd be a crumby deal for the consumer and the company. Those frames are expensive to produce, but they can recoup the cost on full builds. With the S Works frames, they have enough prestige and engineering in them to justify selling them alone, albeit for a high price.
