You kept breaking them and still you kept buying them? Loyal? Or stupid!?

Black Mountain Bikes: Kid's Bikes That Grow With Them
This is cool, but I'm questioning the age/sizing. My 3 year old (4 in 3 weeks), had a 10"balance bike at 1, a 12" balance bike at 2 and when he was 3 a neighbour gave him a 16" bike with pedals, and he just got on a rode it. A week later we went for a 13km ride. The month after that he got a round of applause for getting all the way around the BMX race track on it, people stunned he'd been riding a month or so and was only 3. Now, the bike was perhaps too long for him, and the seat was slammed, but this year it's already been raised about 3" and will need to go up more soon. The length is now pretty good too. But, there is no way he will be on a 16" at 6 years I think. Definitely not up until 8. He's only just slightly above average height too so it's not because he's extremely tall, he's maybe advanced for his age but that's a different thing. Nonetheless cool bikes. Love the belt drive. One thing I hate about my kids bike is the rear coaster brake which is just dangerous in my mind. Makes it very hard off-road and the BMX track.

Insane he just gets up from that, repacks the landing and nails it. Most people would be either broken or terrified to go again.

Shimano's Wild New Shifting Chain Guide - First Look
Yeah, except the Shimano cassettes weight a ton. SRAM is much lighter. Pointless argument.

First Ride: 2019 RockShox Lyrik RC2
If that is supposed to be a reflection of the old Judy DH etc I'm pretty sure the colour is too red... I personally thought it was a Manitou Mattoc until I read the description.

Specialized Partners with Magura for 2018 Race Teams
Had MT5. Super powerful and modulation once you got used to it. Unfortunately they failed constantly leaving me brakeless ride after ride. I advocated Magura at work even though we had a plastic crate full of buggered ones (literally full). I was wrong, power is nothing if they aren't reliable and they are not.

20 European Riding Spots We Want to Visit in 2018
Sorry, while your point is valid, I'm too busy being pissed off about the fact I haven't been on 1 single road trip or MTB holiday ever... I started mountain biking in 1991 ffs.

Cycling Brands Under Scrutiny in Gun Control Debate
@Timroo1: technically didn't categorize everyone as such. But let's face it, this post has garnered more response than any other post ever on pinkbike I believe, more so than Sam Pilgrim on an Ebike and Steve Smith's death, which is sad and also kinda implies a high percentage of people are pro-gun therefore pro-death. It's simple statistics that more people in the US believe in the right to bare arms than don't. Therefore I generalise that the US are homicidal maniacs. Sorry for the offence. By the way, I'm English not Finnish!
