Commencal Releases 2018 Range
@b1k35c13nt15t: what is that? A new revenue stream for bike companies targeting people who don't care for the physical exertion that comes with cycling. $$$

Commencal Releases 2018 Range
@b1k35c13nt15t: the old handicapped argument. Get over it. All I see around me are lazy farts whizzing past me on fat tire or e-mountain bikes on my morning commutes to work. Do you really think manufacturers are chasing sales thanks to old or handicapped people? Stop being naive and see it for what it is.

Trek 1120 Adventure Bike Has Dedicated Racks
With mtb 1x drivetrains a front derailleur is totally unnecessary. Also a carbon fork is fine, they are overbuilt and plenty stong. So unless you are going on global unsupported tours for months at a time, this Trek is fine for the aspiring weekend camper and that is what it's made for. I will say however that carbon forks with rack mounts are awful... because it is hard to engineer flex into carbon while at the same time making it strong enough to support side loads, the ride is unrelentingly harsh.

Calibre Bossnut V2 - Review
Are you trying to say that they should have used the increased benefits of Horst link suspension setup at this price range now that it doesn't require a license? Your concise and articulate thesis on technological economics is as work of genius.

Calibre Bossnut V2 - Review
For f's sake, stop speccing doubles and triple chainrings on mountain bikes already!! I've never understood why they keep doing this on budget and kids bikes... those are precisely the target of people who need the front derailleur LEAST of all. most beginners don't use them properly, they're heavy and a pain in the ass to maintain. Why single them out on the trail by foisting this outdated thing that nobody else uses anymore? I'm pretty sure any kid would rather have a 1x and play with the big boys than be shamed on the trail with a front derailleur. Do manufacturers get some kind of financial incentive to crappify their bikes with them or what??

New Polygon DH Bike Sighted at Whistler
I'd like to this this win some races, that'd shut all the naysayers up. Besides, the pot-bellied look of the r3act suspension might actually look good for DH bikes. Can't really tell from the photos, but it looks really low slung
