Opinion: Why Have Bike Makers Ignored this Grassroots Fix?
@Mojo348: I agree. Must be the stupidest suggestion I ever heard on Pink Bike: Cover your bike in plastic. What net? Suggesting to spray them with latex?

Review: NS Snabb 150 Plus 1
Oh well ... you are riding a 33 pounds (with pedals) monster with huge wheels and uber slack geometry ... what do you expect: climbing prowess?

Review: Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt Carbon 70
@Svinyard: so much so that even this reviewer notices that the bike does not really go with the shock wide open ... compare to my IBIS HD3 that climbs like a goat with a wide open shock and 150 mm travel. My experience with Horsts (GT, 130 travel, Turner, 140, Norco, 100) has always been the same: unless you firm up the shock a lot they don't really climb well. Back off the air pressure and they go through their travel the second they hit a root or a step, effectively stopping your momentum. But by all means, if you like it enjoy your bike!!!!

Review: Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt Carbon 70
"but the black and red bike never felt like it was in a hurry with its Fox shock left wide open". I just don't get why people insist using a Horst link. It simply does not climb efficiently and this has been know for at least 20 years ... even my 100 mm Norco Revolver is a dog uphill if I leave the shock open. Turn the blue lever and it climbs better but traction and bump compliance goes off.

First Look: KS Genesys Integrated Dropper Seatpost
The best feature is that you now only have 10 mm of height adjustment: better be sure where you cut it!!!!!!!

Comparison Test: Are Wider Rims Better? We Try 4 Different Widths
@mattwragg: I agree with powpowpow without a blind test this has the potential of being very biased. Notice how in your conclusions you recommend 30+ rims even if you have no evidence that 35 mm is better than 30. Similar bias seems to show up in the analysis of the timed runs. You exclude data points after looking at the results instead of relying on an independent analysis. And cherry pick the largest observed difference to make your point, something a statistician would never do ... Having said that, great effort!

Review: Race Face’s New Cinch Oval Ring
I have been using Garbaruk oval for 3 years on XTR derailleur on a Race Face Next SL with no problem. Not sure what makes the reviewer claim that the Race Face "is the best so far" (as if he had actually tested all ovals on the market!) but the Garbaruk is a very good product and costs a bit less.
