Bicycle addict. I like steep ups and downs. Road, CX, AM trail and anything fun on bikes. Also ride to get around town.

HT's Fresh Pedals - Core Bike Show 2017
Maybe the first nylonglass HT's that are actually HT branded and distributed in the US of A? I know a lot of their catalog is/was OEM/overseas only. They certainly have been making these things for other people for a long time.

Merida One-Sixty 8000 - Review
Giant and Transition do their own thing? Giant makes everyone's stuff and takes liberal doses of "inspiration", Transition has a horst-link bike (I'm sorry, giddy-up!) Don't get me wrong, Trance and Patrol are both fine bikes... your statement just happens to be silly.

Merida One-Sixty 8000 - Review
@rmalexan: hardly any made in us anymore, pretty sure it was just Madone 700 series

Pinkbike Poll - How Much Dropper Post Travel Do You Prefer?
that said, if this is a poll placed as market research for the industry's benefit...just come out with travel adjustable posts that don't break (fat chance of that haha) and/or spec the posts according to frame size (eg: 100 xs/s, 125 m, 150 l, 175 xl) and discipline (shorter for xc/trail, longer for AM/enduro) with matching frame design. any outlier body types will probably already be thinking about swapping the OEM bits anyway. really this ain't rocket surgery.

Pinkbike Poll - How Much Dropper Post Travel Do You Prefer?
what size stem do you like? ...on what frame? on what size bars? how big is your inseam? how long are your arms? how wide do you like your bars? what trail are you riding? what is your riding style? do you come from an XC or a gravity background? do you send jumps or go B-line? tooooooo many variables!!!!! this poll is silly.

Five Ten Freerider ELC - Review
@djm35: personally I don't care for Fox or TLD's design tastes, and while they do go after a bigger target market I think that in fact this is Five Ten's way of being more moto-loud. Speaking of crossover "cool" action sports companies, I gotta say Dakine's been offering a good balance of loud and understated including in MTB.

Shimano Tweaks 11-Speed Offerings - Goes 11-46T
Agreed on the first two but there are plenty of cart bearing hub options out there, loose ball is good if well done so let them make it
