The Short, Turbulent Life of URT Suspension
The Mantra was my first real mountain bike. 24lbs for a mid-range build, and it climbed better than a hardtail. It had a sort of inchworm effect where it would spring you up with every pedal stroke. I could also bunnyhop like a beast. Sadly what they say about its downhill abilities is true, but I think mostly it was due to the super steep geometry meant to compensate for the rear sag of the 5” of travel. I’d be super curious how a Mantra with modern geometry would perform.

Giant Factory Off-Road Team Partners with DVO Suspension for 2018 Race Season
@jzPV: you’re being very kind... I would have just said their designs continue to be amateurish and cheap.

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.

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.
