Good Month / Bad Month: Racing, Affordable Carbon, XTR, Illness & Injuries - January 2019
@sspiff: But it IS NOT less expensive than any comparable options. $2500 for a hybrid carbon/aluminum hybrid is about the same of the few hybrid offerings on the market. You can buy most full carbon frames for $3000.

Video: RockShox's Wireless Reverb AXS Dropper Post Explained
Yep! Get a BikeYoke Revive if you want one that works seamlessly. Only Pinkbike can manage to be impressed by a test in which the drop stops working after one ride!!!!!!! Other than the one ride reliability, it is a bit of clunky looking beast. 650 grams would make it the class leader: meaning the heaviest by a fair bit! Keep adding weight to our bikes! Good job!

Video: SRAM's Wireless Eagle AXS Drivetrain Explained
"we've got to the point where it's going to take electronics to improve shifting speed and precision" .... well ... what Di2 proved was the advantage of electronics when it come to shift chain rings, and a marginal, at best, advantage for the rear. Sure SRAM shifting is not as good as XTR so the advantage might be a bit more in this case, but frankly spending this much money for a derailleur + shifter that probably will come out heavier (not lighter) than the mechanical derailleur+shiter+cable and have basically the same performance seems a bit silly.

And again with the idea that a $2440 carbon frame with aluminum rear triangle is "less expensive". Most of the times Pinkbike overwrites commercials!

Guerrilla Gravity's Less Expensive, US-Made Carbon Frame
@bansaiman: No the weight of this is not really impressive. We still do not know if the 6.5 pounds is just the front triangle, but mid travel, 130-140, Ibis/Pivot/Santa Cruz are all well below 6 pounds with shock. My Ibis HD3 (160/150) is 5.9 pounds with shock, 5.2 lbs bare. If you care about weight putting aluminum on a frame is always heavier (and cheaper). And there are cheaper all carbon frames around. For example my full carbon Norco Revolver was $1800 and if you care about weight it was 4.6 (painted red) WITH shock.

Guerrilla Gravity's Less Expensive, US-Made Carbon Frame
You will not really get it. Carefully unmentioned in this Pinbike commercial is the fact that the rear triangle is aluminum. That is one of the reasons the frame costs "only" $2440, instead of the fairly standard $3,000 for a full carbon bike. Weight is the other reasons: 6.5 pounds with no shock makes this a pretty heavy "carbon" frame. Hopefully the weight is the frame complete not just the front triangle.

Review: The Pole Machine Has a Serious Need For Speed
Three Thousands Euro for an aluminum anchor kept together using ... glue .. and bolts (because they are not sure tthat he glue actually works). Bravissimi! (Very good!). And they say you can actually pedal it! Wow!

Review: Unno's Dash is Ultra-Exotic, Ultra-Efficient, & Ultra-Expensive
It is kind of ridiculous to spend $9700 for 28 plus bike. My IBIS HD3 is 24.3 to 25 pounds depending on wheels and tires and costs less than that including two wheel sets!

Field Test: Yeti SB130
It is hard to believe (and in the case f weight an oxymoron) that a 29 wheeled 29 pounds bike is 'light and lively" ...
