The New Craftworks ENR v1.1 High Pivot 160mm Enduro Bike
I can only imagine the drag (and weight) of something like this. Good for Shuttle runs!

Point: Suspension Lockout Levers Have Made Bikes Worse
Love articles like this: provocative title followed by a complete disregard for how we got here. Sure, if you are stuck on a Horst Link, or a single pivot, bike you will need a lockout, and we have been knowing this for at least thirty years. The Horst is an improvement with respect to a single pivot but both would have disappeared if position sensitive shocs had not appeared around the turn of the millennium. But guess what! if you want a trail bike that climbs and descends without ever needing a lockout you can get a Dave Weagle equipped bike. For example Ibis or Pivot. I have been riding Ibis for 15 years and I never, ever, touch the little blue lever. (Ad far as fork lock out? That is nuts, unless you ride on asphalt-like trails).

Counterpoint: We Need Suspension Lockout Levers
But really get a DW bike, like an Ibis of Pivot. As far as locking out the fork for climbing ... sure it works if you are an asphalt-like trail ...

The Lightest Carbon Crankset and a Magnetic Hip Pack - Sea Otter 2019
There have been ligther ultra reliable cranks on the market for years. My Race Face Next SL is 360 grams in 170 length. And this is from 2015, two generations ago, the newest ones are lighter by few dozen grams and still pretty much unbreakable.

Yeti SB130 Lunch Ride Replica - Sea Otter 2019
@glynnondale: sure they eat and ride, try that. I love it how people drink up commercial advertising better than cool aid! Sure: this is the bike designed for lunch break! Where is the bike for "breakfast start". "Evening release"? "Night Dream"? when all the Yeti employees go riding instead of going to sleep?

Yeti SB130 Lunch Ride Replica - Sea Otter 2019
Not to mention ridiculous statements such as: "the entire crew heads to the hills at noon each workday". Right, with "few exceptions" they all go: empty stomach and skip lunch, everyday! Textbook "brand loyalty" fantasy (look mom! I am riding the same bike they ride for lunch!). Sometimes I can't believe what kind of crap shot commercials make it in press at Pinkbike!

Bike Check: Kate Courtney's Scott Scale - Sea Otter 2019
@nozes: Yep, with the dropper post (almost one pound extra weight), the electronics (heavier than cables), twelve speed cassette, quarq power meter ... I would be surprised if it is below 21 pounds.

OneUp Announces Carbon Bars, EDC Ready Stem & Lock-On Grips
It is amazing how the bike industry keep fooling us by playing with numbers ... they found the holy grail when they figured that bigger always wins in the mind of their costumers.

Pinkbike Poll: What Size Are Your Tires?
Nice pool: proof positive that most riders use what works not what publication and industry wants them to ride. For 27.5 the most used tires are right at 2.5-2.4/2.4-2.3 front/rear! Few ride as big as 2.6!

Review: Syncros' Hixon SL IC Integrated Carbon Bar & Stem
Too bad they messed up the review where it counts. Weight. There is no reason to get a item like this if it did not weight significantly less than a standard set up, that is way more customizable to a rider needs. Pinkbike says: "freaking light". Let's compare. My Renthal Carbon is 180 grams, my Renthal Apex 40 mm is 118grams. Total is 298. Enve 40 stem is 85 grams, and a M6 bar 200, Total 285. Yes, of course their downhill bar is a bit more heavy. The Syncros is 290, just about in the middle. Conclusion: the usual commercial from PinkBike. "freaking light" the Syncros ain't
