There's a Fine Line Between Clever and Stupid - Opinion
It's crazy concept. I just try to ride bikes that feel fun, not based on what the numbers say...

Suspension Travel - What's Your Ideal Amount? - Pinkbike Poll
@vernonfelton: badass response. I don't get the mistrust of this site. If I'm the one who is an idiot and if the point is to sell shit then I don't care anyway. I pay way less for pinkbike then I do for cable and I get many more hours of entertainment out of this site. Thanks for doing what you do.

Spengle's One-Piece Carbon Enduro Wheels - First Look
I see myself crashing, then the bike comes around, my arm goes between the spokes and there goes my arm.

2017 Pinkbike Awards - Value Product of the Year Nominees
Thought the Suntour Durolux 29 fork was going to make this list for sure, especially after that review earlier today.

Have Your Say on the Ever-Changing Bike Standards
I think its fine to have all the standards and changes. It's harder to differentiate in today's market and if everyone has to use proprietary parts let it happen. Look at the automotive world, Mercedes and Honda can't use most of their part interchangeably but they cater to different customers looking for different things. For aftermarket parts brands have to cater to both of these people when applicable and it is a risk of how many they need to make. That part sucks for smaller companies that can't make 15 different options but it leaves the opportunity for companies to specialize their offerings for certain brands. If this does happen to the bike industry it might be cool to see bikes like the Marin Hawk Hill becoming the Honda Civic equivalent of bikes and a Santa Cruz Hightower becoming the BMW M5. I think this may lower the cost of entry to the sport and get more people on bikes and will give brands at the high end the ability to push the boundaries even if it doesn't match what everyone else is doing. Just trying to spin the "evolution" of standards into a positive

Pivot's New Carbon and Alloy Enduro Bikes - First Look
@TheRaven: I guess I'm just always looking for the best bang for the buck. Probably the first disagreement I've had online where the other person wasn't a total dick, so kudos for that. For the GX drivetrain I was putting it ahead because it is the Eagle version not the 11 speed.

Pivot's New Carbon and Alloy Enduro Bikes - First Look
@TheRaven: You are correct, I meant to say S. Still I wouldn't say GX Eagle and SLX/XT mashup with aeffect crank are comparable. I also think Guides are way better than Shimano M615s, why wouldn't they spec at least SLX there? And the reverb is a $300+ part. These are little things that I think that for $3,800 you would expect a 2018 bikes to have. And I just pointed to Santa Cruz because I think most people say those are the expensive "dentist" bikes. I think a lot of brands are giving us better value for our money component wise these days.

Pivot's New Carbon and Alloy Enduro Bikes - First Look
Why are pivots so expensive? Going toe to toe with comparable bikes on their cheapest option a Santa Cruz Bronson R blows their spec out of the water. The Bronson is $100 more but it isn't their lowest offering. On the Bronson you get GX Eagle, SRAM Guide brakes and a Reverb. Where is all of the expense on the Pivot coming from in the Alloy models?
