Review: 2021 Cube TWO15 HPC SLT - DH Bike Week
This, I found that part especially interesting. Would really like to know how the manufacturing tolerances are like, and if they differ between brands.

Pinkbike Poll: Has Your Fork's Crown Ever Creaked?
Question: "if yes,..." Answer option: "no" Who did check these polls, spoiler alert, you forgot something. Anyways, both forks I owned creaked after about 1,5 years. Still work perfectly fine though.

First Ride: 2021 Propain Hugene - More Travel, More Capable
This, it's just that many bike companies pricing seems to have catched on and nobody questions it anymore. But what did we expect, when consumers keep consuming. People defending nx builds, 3k is considered budget now

Opinion: 7 Things All New Mountain Bikes Should Have
Well yeah, of course, this is a very agreeable list. The real question though is: what are you willing to compromise to put all the options in? And this answer will rightfully be different for every type of rider. So in my opinion it's not as easy to say "every bike should be like this". I love variation. Niche markets. Brands that go the conservative route instead of shoving the latest and greatest cool thing around the block on consumers. Brands that try the extreme geometries, materials and manufacturing, compromising something else. So while I agree with this list, of course, ejo wouldn't, I think it is not a good approach to try to streamline everything.

YT Announces Tax Break Donation to Regional Nonprofits
@TypicalCanadian: no, because nearly every company reduced their prices like the government intended, and every consumer saw reduced prices and that would have been a shitstorm on its own "look at capitalist yt increasing the prices again"

2020 Pinkbike Awards: Value Mountain Bike of the Year Nominees
This, I literally copied the same text part and wanted to write about it. Thankfully you were quicker, but I will still comment and support your statement. I bought my rose granite chief for 1800€ 5 years ago: pike/monarch, e1900, xt drivetrain, deore brakes, raceface stuff. Spent 330€ later for an internal dropper post. Yes the Izzo rides better in provably every way because of new stuff and especially geometry, but cost wise newer bikes are nearly always more expensive for the same "level".

Pinkbike Poll: Which Mountain Bike Standards Should Stick Around?
Lol @ everybody just choosing what they own. We need a thorough investigation on what standards have actually changed over the last years, and what definitive benefits new bikes have as result. While the often quoted notion, sometimes in defense of new standards, "modern bikes are much better than some years ago because of many improvements" bla bla is very true, I would like to know, is the jump from 142 to 148 rear really that relevant after all? Or is it mainly the geo, better suited components for the riding style, ...? in a thorough study it should be possible to single out important and not so important parameters. Meanwhile I'm off buying the latest and greatest I can afford, just like everybody else :)
