First Look: Mavic's New Deemax SSC Wheels
@kwapik: That's a fantastically helpful graphic.

First Ride: The New Focus SAM is a 170mm Lightweight
Totally. I'm really concerned with the level of flex at my stem interface. But then two years later they'll realize they still want stiffness at the fork crown so they'll do a new standard that's 1.5" top and bottom, but in a metric equivalent so that it's still different from the last time that was a standard, and also so you can't fit any current components onto it.

@bishopsmike: It's not actually a flex-stay bike. The rear end is a solid triangle from the looks of it and if you look closely at the upper linkage, you can see a little swinger piece that would allow for the slight vertical movement caused by the single pivot motion. Not that's there's anything wrong with a CF flex-stay design (love my Decree).

@SintraFreeride: Wait, what's the difference between 20x110 and 20x110 boost?

YT Introduces Aluminum Tues DH Bike
I don't get it either. I love my CF trail bike. It sheds a good deal of weight and provides some great stiffness where it's needed. But my aluminum DH bike is already relatively overbuilt (at a minor weight penalty) so I doubt you'd be able to eek much extra stiffness out of it, and the potential weight savings aren't as critical since it's still reasonably light.

Contest: R-Dog's Bontrager Tire Giveaway
Holy crap. I just watched the type-and-sizing video on their site. Simple classification for intended use and a simple 1-5 scale with rolling resistance at one end and traction at the other. This is what we want. This is exactly what we all want.

Review: Mondraker Foxy Carbon XR 29
$5400USD for an NX build, revelation fork, and MT-500 brakes (which are apparently deore level but I can't even find them on Shimano's website). For reference, my similar quality carbon fibre bike has an equal or better parts spec all around (XT drivetrain, Pike, Deore brakes) and listed one year ago for $4000 USD.

Review: Mondraker Foxy Carbon XR 29
I'm actually a bit relieved to see this quote in the review: "They're both great machines, but I'd choose the Orbea if my F-word were fun, and the Foxy if it were fast and f-ing steep, which is a different kind of fun." It seems like one of the first admissions I've seen that maybe we've hit the limit of long and will see people looking more for a balance of fast and fun.

Review: Fox Live Valve Suspension
@bj007: Did it work (at least by the standards of the day)? I remember the reviews at the time were actually pretty favourable.

@gotohe11carolina: Thanks, I was starting to worry that nobody would get it.
