Ask Pinkbike: 29er DH Bikes, Crankbrothers Pedals, and Norco Range vs Sight
Considering 27.5 and 26 are more suited to freeride / park / twistier trails, I can't imagine there suddenly won't be any options available for DH bikes with those wheels sizes. If anything, the industry will start marketing "park/freeride" vs "dh race" bikes as separate segments, you know they love to do that. Also, non racer's don't usually have upgrade-itis and won't give a damn. I think you're better off bitching about hubs and bb's on this particular rant.

Trek Fuel EX 9.8 Women's - Review
@Bluefire: Well put....and if you look at the comments above, you'll see that even clothing swings both ways. From my experience fitting and anecdotally, same goes with saddles (though more rarely)

@BenPea: everybody likes pink :P There's just people comfortable with it, and people who aren't. You're right on Hasbro being culturally culpable of making it a socialized obsession though. Pink on Black as Tenuous lololololol...that is a Stretch........ha

It is just a color combo. That guys like it alot too. The industry is dumb. "pinkbike.com" get with the program manufacturers.

YAAAS. This should be a "unisex" bike! We are on a site called Pinkbike after all. Can we just have long/compact and tall/short frame options in all colors?

What's Your Favorite Product From a Competitor? - Sea Otter 2017
@RedRedRe: I've had issues with some things John did/posted (you bring up a relevant example); just like I've had issues with content on Pinkbike before. That being said, John and most of the rest of the content creators on Radavist ride the piss out of their (pretty, custom, fetishized) bikes... It might not be riding styles you enjoy, and they might just stop for lots of photos, but it's still cycling. Many (though not all) cyclists enjoy bicycles as objects, as well...I think it's safe to say most Pinkbike users would qualify. I mean seriously, how many articles are about a specific products, and how many comments are about the aesthetics of a product? So do you really mean to tell me Pinkbike isn't very heavily "about products" ?!? Do you really think Pinkbike and all the companies advertising/featured on it don't spend time and money on "lifestyle" marketing? I'm not asking you to like the Radavist at all, I just take issue with a pot calling a kettle black.

What's Your Favorite Product From a Competitor? - Sea Otter 2017
@RedRedRe: pretty sure there are mostly riders who love adventure riding, cx, and xc...maybe some framebuilders etc... and probably a handful of hipsters who walk to the coffee shop on the radavist. Probably a lot of people who just rode fixed gears 4 years ago and are now riding trails and loving pinkbike, too. Kinda like pinkbike, mostly riders geeking out when they aren't riding...and then a (big) handful of people who just talk smack in the comment section. They might watch some world cup videos and buy Troy Lee kit to sit in at the trailhead a couple times a year. ....Might you be one of the latter ;) ?
