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.

More like Stan's rim +tubeless setup +high pressure +spray-on glue = rolled tire. No imaginary stones necessary.

Now THAT Was a Bike: 1995 GT LTS
Watching that footage reminds me how things have come full circle on downhill racing. Nico riding with gloves but no knee pads instead of kneepads but no gloves, clipless pedals, and a downhill track that looks like the one coming up in Lošinj, Croatia.

Pinkbike Poll: Does the Current Method of Mountain Bike Classification Make Sense?
I disagree with the hypothetical discussion at the LBS. Its more like: Shop employee: "How much are you thinking of spending"? Customer: "$500" Shop employee: "Unfortunately, in that price range we only have the old low tech bikes you have to pedal uphill yourself. I have the perfect bike for you over here..."
