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" ...

First Look: Industry Nine's A35 Stem
Looks like a Renthal Apex copy cat. Incredibly annoying that it is offered only in A35. planned obsolescence in Action!

Now THAT Was a Bike: 1993 AMP Research B2
Frame was a noodle, fork was useless on any kind descent, shock was non adjustable but its lack of travel masked the problems with the Horst link ... I had a B4 and it did not last too long, the pivots self-destruct, but it was light. BTW: you can count on RC to say the smart thing: the idea that the angle of the rear pulling cable rubbed power from cantilever brakes on suspension bikes is really precious!

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.
