The Outlier - The Full Story of the Wild Insolent DH Bike
This design intrigues me in the ways of the old days. When nearly every companies flagship bike was a marvel in its own right. Cant wait to see real world tests and reviews. This will likely be the most supple and bump sensitive rear suspension ever made. Now hopefully they can tune it to also pedal decently.

Suspension Travel - What's Your Ideal Amount? - Pinkbike Poll
I regularly wish my enduro rig had more that 160mm rear travel. I think 170 is ideal. My 9.5" dh sled has nothing to do with this opinion.

Canyon Now Offering Home Delivery by Velofix
As someone who works far a business with the drivers. I can say that unfortunately the liability insurance a business is required to carry for a company vehicle and employed driver is pretty costly. Plus professional maintenance on the vehicle. Plus vehicle cost and insurance itself. Its a great idea but many small shops could likely never handle the financial undertaking to do so.

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.
