Glasgow in Bid to Host First Ever All-Discipline World Championships
I was just thinking Vancouver would be awesome. And as much as I don't really care about the UCI, that would be freaking epic. Good on Glasgow to make it happen, perhaps Vancouver next year?

First Ride: The New Canyon Strive
Leaving Uber conservative geometry and worries about Shapeshifter long term reliability aside for a moment, US price for the frame is the same as for a carbon Sentinel frameset. So much for direct to consumer savings, I guess...

First Ride: YT's New Long-Travel 29er, the Jeffsy 29 CF Pro Race
@BaeckerX1: some suspension designs depend on high end shocks to work well , especially for heavier riders. I bought a Giant a while back after really liking the demo. Turns out, with the lower spec shock the bike had crappy small bump compliance and I still bottomed out harshly all the time. I'd love to see in depth tests covering both the high and low end specs in a range, so buyers will know whether it's truly just a bit of lighter weight and better brakes and shifting, or whether the low end bike rides qualtatively differently.

Reece Wilson Completes the Trek Factory Racing DH Team Line Up
I've got some grumpy old man bias on this - but given the hordes of people I see at trailheads, in lift lines, and even smack in the middle of the f*cking trails instragramming and facebooking their selfies and moody backlit bike pictures and "action shots", I'd say this whole social media circlejerk is definitely hitting its audience. I'll get back to my porch now, yelling at those damn kids to get off my damn lawn...

Field Test: 12 Bikes Hucked to Flat in Gratuitous Slow Motion
Because you can just hear someone say 'hold my beer and watch this' when they thought if this, and that's been the root of every major advance for humanity...

Pinkbike Awards: Best Value Product Winner
@mikekazimer: People have different preferences, so let's not get into the perceived advantages of Shimano vs. SRAM shifting. But if you're looking for value and a trouble-free ownership experience, it's hard to argue that NX has anything over an 11-speed SLX drivetrain with close to the same range (11-46 vs 11-50, and yes, that step at the low end on the Shimano is a bit awkward). Street prices on SLX gear are ridiculously low, the derailleur is pretty damn bullet proof, and adjustment is pretty set-and-forget (and requires a lot less fiddling and on-going adjustment).

Handlebar Width vs Handling - Are Your Bars Too Wide?
@vhdh666: it's because we drink too many points of beer to worry about the inconsistency... Jokes aside - I grew up in Germany, and the whole non-metric units this g is driving me nuts. But because it's what everyone around me uses, I've adapted. Sort of a when in Rome thing.
