Your Bike Is Fine Already. Just Ride It. - Opinion
“This annual shopping orgy saddens me a bit, particularly since (in America, at least) it comes directly on the heels of a day dedicated to giving thanks for what we already have.” Such irony and so true. Nice work as usual mr Felton!

@bkm303: my bad, I did not realize you were talking about the bike snob article. I completely agree.

Santa Cruz Nomad 4 - Review
For a $9000 bike you would EXPECT first class performance and LESS WEIGHT than 30lbs. It’s a given. At this price point reviewers really need to be much more critical.

@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.
