What if I had no responsibilities and could ride my bike all day, every day?

Raaw Madonna - Press Release and Interview
Where the top tube is welded, they should have left the bottom end open and made it to accept one of those new crank axle or steer tube tools.

Have Your Say on the Ever-Changing Bike Standards
I agree with the article on the issue of too rapid of changes. I feel this is having a huge affect on bike sales. DH bikes in particular. DH bikes seem to be going through a massive identity crisis right now. 27.5 vs 29. super boost vs. 175dh. standard shocks vs. metric. Carbon vs alu. And now 203 vs 250mm rotors... Too much is changing way too fast. Most are gonna sit on what they have till it calms down a bit.

Have Your Say on the Ever-Changing Bike Standards
Since boost is here to stay. Can the industry at least do the following: 1) We don't need more than three hub standards. Period. 2)Dump 157 dh. Its pointless and does nothing tangible, when compared to Super Boost Plus 157. 3) For the love of god, just call it Boost 157!.....

Yoann Barelli's Commencal Meta AM V4.2 - Finale Ligure EWS 2017
Super clean setup. Likely a fantastic bike but seem flexy. Im probably wrong though.

Greg Minnaar's Broken Santa Cruz V10 - Val di Sole DH World Cup 2017
Oh boy. Let the theories fly and que the popcorn. I doubt theres a single dh bike in existence that would survive that impact. Metalic or plastic. That was a direct hit at speed to the edge of a square post. Might as well have been a chopping block. Glad it wasn't Gregs leg.
