I like the to roll on trails, but i'm not a racer, and i don't wanna be a racer...
I just love the freedom when i ride my bike.

As former owner of webshop i know enough about bike market. Not much, but enough for me to understand there are no more real "mountainbikers" in this industry. Just profit oriented corporations and businessmans ... R.I.P. those good old days of mountainbiking :'(

Tech Tuesday: How & Why to Upgrade Your Pads and Rotors
"If they are sharp, square edges, it is likely a higher-quality rotor and you’re free to use the pad of your choice. If they are slightly rounded or chamfered, you may have a resin-only rotor." Just tell this to Shimano. They started with the SLX, then now also the XT rotors are stamped and made in China, while a few years ago both SLX and XT were laser-cut rotors. BTW, thx Shimano, for lower quality at a higher price!

Review: 3 Mountain Bike Handguards Ridden & Rated
Wonder if the popularity of these will last as long as neck braces' :D Few years back, everyone looked weird to you, if you had no neck brace, even for a Sunday afternoon ride through the park. It was so important for your safety, that NOONE use them anymore, not even @ UCI DH races. Live long overrated bike products! BTW, it's just as stupid thing, as the derailleur guard decades ago :)) During a crash could cause more problems than protection it has. But don't listen to me, hurry, go and buy +130g of weight for $80, then cry because of your titanium screw kit for your bike costs $300, while saving you around 27g ;) Spend smart, not hard.

Field Test: 6 Downcountry Bikes VS the Efficiency Test
...and with different tyre pressure (let's say 10 PSI, with 2 PSI increments/run), also for different height/frame size, and different body weight. I know it sounds like a lot, but I don't care! :P (PB community will pay you the beer and sandwiches for this project)

Video: 7 Enduro Bikes Ridden & Rated - Field Test Roundtable
A few years ago when we saw a $11.2k ebike, it was super-expensive. Now a "simple" enduro bike can costs that much :(

Nukeproof Releases New Solum Dirt Jump Frame
i don't know, but i'm waiting for the newest 36" wheeled slopestyle machine, just to be the fastest ⏩⏩ if this trend continues (thanks god isn't true for DJ/street bikes), they'll put small obstacles just in front of kickers, to should say "My 29" wheeled DJ bikes' roll-over capabilities helped me to finish ahead of those old-fashioned guys with their vintage 26" bikes!

Further weight savings (like 4-5g!): peel off the stickers. For an incredible -18g, unpainted version. LVL 9999 of featherness: wash out all of the grease from bearings -> saves around 6 more grams.
