Retro Tech: 6 Classic Mountain Bikes - Crankworx Whistler 2018
@Maxipedia: And I guess I'm referring to "local" classics. That is, bikes and bike brands available to riders in and around Vancouver, Squamish and Whistler during the mid-2000s time period. Generally local bike shops carried the brands you see in the photos above. Thus, it's why some cyclists from this area bought and apparently are still riding those particular bikes.

Retro Tech: 6 Classic Mountain Bikes - Crankworx Whistler 2018
@zonoskar: Given that most of these riders are from presumably from Canada, you're going to see what was more homegrown or at least more widely available here. Intense, Yeti, Lawwill and Foes are all much more American brands (and thus harder much harder to come by north of the border).

Video: KHS Factory Takes The Win at the US Open - Killington, VT
@lRaphl: I guess I'm speaking about the old days. You know, the late 90s and early 2000s when they were a popular bike on the XC racing circuit.

@bulletbassman: I find the opposite in Canada, so it must be related to regional representation in the US. KHS is popular in Ontario and Quebec, but you rarely see them (if ever) in BC or Yukon.

Rocky Mountain Announces Less Expensive Instinct BC Edition
I actually like the colours. Good looking bike. What I still don't understand though are many of the dramatic price increases over the years. I had a somewhat similarly spec'ed aluminum 2014 Rocky Mountain Instinct 950 for which I paid $3,299 CAD. Full SLX, good wheels, not as nice fork, but solid bike. Now, four years later that same bike is $4,999 CAD. An increase of $1,700! What gives? I understand "inflation" but c'mon. What's really going on?

Garneau Acquires Sugoi & Sombrio
I have a bunch of Garneau cycling gear and it's really good stuff. They seem like they have their act together.

Bike Check: Jesse Melamed's Rocky Mountain Instinct - EWS Petzen-Jamnica 2018
Look like Race Face Love Handles. I had a pair: soft, grippy but too thin for my tastes.

Rocky Mountain's Parent Company Changes Name To... Rocky Mountain?
@chilli-biker: I agree. My warranty experience has been mostly with Kona, but every time they have been quick, helpful and cool. As such, I have bought quite a few Kona bikes through the same dealer (Icycle Sports in Whitehorse, Yukon) over the years.
