First Ride: Scott Ransom 900 Tuned
Top half of the frame is lightweight? What's their warranty/crash replacement like?

Staff Rides: Photographer Matt Wragg's Scott Spark
@FR33DOMdotCOM: High rise bar is equivalent to spacers and a longer stem. What matters is where your hands end up, and not how you get there, as far as geo goes.

Video: Tech Talks - Wheel Balance 101, Presented by Park Tool
Pretty much the same procedure and tools the tire guys in the pits run through after putting a fresh set of rubber on your roadracing motorcycle wheels -- except they get the job done a lot quicker than these guys. Some of the racing tire manufacturers are nice enough to put a mark on at the heaviest point so you can orient it across from the valve. Don't think it's worth the bother for the comparatively low speeds in cycling though. At least most of the valve stems nowadays are Presta type, so the tire can't go flat at high speeds due to centrifugal force overcoming the spring force in a Schrader valve :)

Review: Mons Royale Redwood 3/4 Raglan T-Shirt
I searched through their 3/4 shirts awhile back (mostly the ones from last year on sale) and gave up since I couldn't find one that didn't look like a MMOONNSS RROOYYAALLEE billboard. I'm not partial to the Dieter Bohlen look. Just in case someone from the company reads the comments. Also a reason for not buying stuff from this year's FFFOOOXXX collection. If they were paying me to wear their LLOOGGOOSS that would be one thing, but alas they're not (but that's OK, I don't blame them for that).

4 Reasons Why You Should Enter a Race This Year - Opinion
I guess you have to answer the question "If you could wake up tomorrow and ride like someone, who would it be?" Who do you look up to? If the answer is Rachel Atherton or Nino Schurter, then yeah, what are you waiting for? If the answer is Semenuk or McAskill, what's the point? Why bother?

Renthal Push-On Grip Ultra Tacky – Review
Test mounted a pair of these in Kevlar, but took them off again for two reasons: 1) too short at 135mm 2) flange in the way. I like the feel and diamond pattern, though. Will try Chromag Wax next. Would like to see a longer flangeless version, keep the wire grooves.

Breeding the Ultimate Mutt Bike - Opinion
Wheel size: Whatever size Maxxis tires are cheapest Suspension travel: Free parameter, somewhere between 130-160 both ends Suspension Progression: like a YT Tues Hardware: One size steel hex M8, "Torque wrench? we don't need no stinkin' Torque wrench" Maintenance: Like a modern assault rifle, complete dissasembly and rebuild trailside blindfolded with only a tire lever as a tool Handling: like an Octane One Zircus Chain Growth: Same as a BMX
