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

Kingdom Bike Announces Vendetta XFS Titanium Trail Bike
"What are those tricks? Did I miss this in the release?" The trick is sourcing the frame in China and selling it for a big markup. I had a look at the cross frame, looks fine until you read the price is for the frame only. For that price I get a well spec'ed complete bike with Ti frame from Planet X.

Liteville 301 MK14 Enduro Factory Machine - Review
The 92mm bottom bracket is a typo, and you could remove the chain guide. Actually, the 140mm travel version built up with 26" wheels and the right components could make a for a killer trail bike. Something light, nimble and with pop to slot in on a conceptual straight line between a DJ and an Enduro sled.

Is "Traditional" a Good Thing When It Comes to Wheels? - Pinkbike Poll
Every time someone brings back high flanged hubs, aluminum spokes, or thinks they will make a wheel ride better by lowering spoke tension I pull out my copy of the bicycle wheel and re-read the sections that remind me it's all been done before and why it's not such a great idea. Because they're so ubiquitous, we tend to forget what an amazing feat of engineering traditional wheels are. Jobs was thinking of wheels built to last for years and thousands of miles. Maybe that's not as significant as it was now that changing rim sizes and hub widths dictate wheels that only need to last a season.
