Field Test: Giant Trance Advanced 29
@JohanG: What's wrong with the pivots and hardware? Carbon rockers and alloy hardware with laser-etched torque settings are low budget now? Easy serviceability is a great thing to have, but in my experience the Giants don't particularly need it. In the 7 years I had on my 07 reign 1, and 5 years on my Trance Advanced 1, I've never had to service the bearings (the Reign did go through DU bushes on the shock every year or two). In contrast my buddy has had to replace the bearings nearly every year on his Santa Cruz Tallboy since 2014. Free bearings for life, sure, but that's also days in the shop every year while they get fitted.

Specialized's New Helmets Can Text For Help After a Crash
couch cough, no surprise if you read the article..."If any of this sounds familiar, it's likely because early versions were created under the name ICEdot. Specialized acquired ICEdot in 2017"

@joeyschusler: should have taken your packrafts, that river looked totally runnable with a bike strapped to the bow ;)

Review: Yeti's New SB100
@MikeAzBS: I love how SC owners are always plugging the "free bearings for life" line. Friend of mine is just putting his Tallboy in this week for its fourth set of FREE bearings in under 4 years (they are shot, rear triangle is rattling on the bumps). Meanwhile my Trance is a year older and the original bearings are still perfectly fine...

First Look: Shimano's New XTR is More Than Just 12-Speed
@nvranka: Nah, I used to ride a truckload more when the best I could afford was SRAM X7 than I do now.

Sarah Builds A Canyon Test Bike - Video
They're about as well protected as possible, short of driving over the box or spearing it with a forklift the bike is not going to get damaged. I got a couple of Canyon kids bikes delivered to me in Barcelona, then transported them back to Hobart Australia via Milan, Singapore and Melbourne. 7 sets of airline handling, two sets of road freight, two taxi rides, a bus ride, getting dragged across town, and strapped to the roof of the car twice. Zero damage, even the boxes survived intact (unlike most, which tear where the handling cutouts in the cardboard are). Cardboard cutouts in the boxes hold the bikes rock solid and velcro attached closed cell foam keeps the front wheel from touching the frame. My bikes came with cardboard covering the rotors and pad spreader in the caliper. Dropout protector/fork spreader is built into the box structure.

@SenorMartillo: "80% to being rideable"? Load of rubbish, did you even watch the video? Pedals, seatpost, handlebar and front wheel were all that had to be attached, and suspension pressure adjusted to personal weight/preference. If you think that's 20% of the effort of building a bike, you've never built a bike.

Pinkbike Poll: What Supplies Do You Bring With You on a Ride?
Haven't had to do the walk of shame in 30 years, last time was the day I got a new road bike at age 15 and got a rear flat 12km from home with no tools or spares of any kind. No cell phones in 1988... These days on my MTB I carry pump, multitool, quicklinks, spare tube, patches, tyre boot (plastic $5 note), cable ties, whistle built into backpack, knife built into multitool. Jacket if it's a long ride, or looks like rain (or I forget to take it out of my pack). 3L bladder in the pack, but only fill it with what I need for the ride.
