Rocky Mountain's Parent Company Changes Name To... Rocky Mountain?
I wonder if new U.S. tariffs and existing exchange rates played in to this decision also. At any rate, RM is a great high-end brand with an exceptional history. I am looking forward to their new innovations. Ride-9 and incredible frame stiffness to weigh ratios make RM bikes unique, but hopefully now the best is still yet to come.

XTR 9100 is Here - How Did it Remain So Secret?
Well done Shimano! I am impressed. This is real innovation, not just incremental improvement. Shimano is back on top again with the best drivetrain in the industry ...... the world is back to normal.

First Look: Shimano's New XTR is More Than Just 12-Speed
Double down shifting? Does it have double down shifting? The double down capability of the old Shimano shifting system was one of its best attributes. Does the new system have double down?

First Ride: Pivot's New Trail 429
The ‘faqs’ section on Pivot’s website is great; they have proactively addressed most of the negative comments mentioned here.

From the Top: Formula's Giacomo Becocci
Formula R1’s on my old Rocky Mountain are the best brakes I’ve ever had. 0 maintenance with the exception of changing out pads. Set them and forget them. Super light, excellent strength, with a light touch. I love them. A superb product. I may swap out my OEM Shimano’s for formulas on my new bike.

A new in box, Charge Knife Ti Saddle. Measures 278mm x 138mm. Purchased for a mountain bike weight reduction project that never came to fruition. This is a race inspired saddle that features a flexible nylon base that allows less foam padding to be used while maintaining a fantastic level of comfort. Hollow titanium alloy rails and a low profile combine sublime comfort with the low weight of a race saddle. A really nice light saddle. $70 CAD plus $10 shipping in Canada or $15 shipping to U.S., or reasonable offer.

A North Eastern Road Trip on the Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt - Video
Wow, a video that shows the type of riding the majority of mountain bikers actually do. No road gaps, 10 foot drops, railing berms at 30 mph, or big air of any kind. Way to keep it real RM! Great video!

Rocky Mountain's New Thunderbolt - First Look
@steveo1117: msl70 was an Amazing bike, I recommend you don’t ever sell it. It’s strength to weight ratio and fun factor is off the charts. But you will notice when you test ride a new RM with the updated geometry that it is more capable on the fast and flowy trails. But if your trails are more tight and technical, then I would say stay with your old MSL 70, I also own one, that is an amazing bike.

First Ride: Intense Sniper Elite XC
@intensecyclesusa: this bike is going to sell like crazy. Trail bike geometry matched with the weight of a cross-country race whip. If it can withstand the abuse trail riders will put on it, you will have a real winner. This type of bike has been absent in the market.
