Press Release: Radon Product News 2018
Dear Radon, stealth bomber/figther doesn’t look anymore like a broken mirror, F117 was designed under Ronald Reagan, and edge design stops at the end of 2000´. Please update your design references.

Raaw Madonna - Press Release and Interview
"looks to have hit all of your preferred nails on the head: sizing, geometry, attention to detail, materials, and pricing" Yep, another expensive bike with stupid AS and PK value for a 160mm bike. Funny how they show AS curves but not PK... This bike will be an absolute horror on small bumps, square edges, slow rocky/root section, etc... Please press, marketing agent, etc... stop selling us the good at pedaling/good on downhill BS since from suspension kinematic this is not possible to get on a single pivot or FSR bike.

Yeti SB5 Turq - Review
@dudee47: unfortunately real suspension performance is not the aim of most of makers. Suspension design is just another marketing argument to distinguish and build brand identity. The most techy it looks, the better it is. Riders need to realize that the "climb like a goat, descend like a GOAT" gimmick is pure bullshit since what make a design good at transmitting energy without loss make it bad at tracking ground. And like MTB is still full of road bike inheritage, nobody want a bike that is not "good" at pedaling. No brand will never say "look, this bike is not the more efficient at pedaling but it goes down like hell, soaks bumps and got a lot of traction" for a trail bike. Moreover it's easy to compare how bike behave at pedaling (just add AS), but very difficult to assess suspension performance.

Yeti SB5 Turq - Review
@MX298: Nothing to do with the shock. Any bike with AS and PKB amounts such as yeti's will have hard time dealing with square edges bumps and finding traction. He exemplify it very well saying that rider have to be very active on the bike, meaning that you have to compensate/damp with your legs for the lack of sensitivity. On the other hand it will "pedal like Hell" and be a breeze on smooth terrain. Bikes with low AS/PKB and progressive LR will work with any modern air shock, even on the simplest version.

CushCore Tire Insert - Review
RRW (Reasonable Rim Width) in conjunction with TCT (Tough Casing Tires) works well for me, for years now...

Everything You Need to Know About Kona's New Process Bikes
Yeah right, what setted kona proceess lineup appart was geometry, low anti-squat and accordingly low pedal kickback, and few rotational forces on the shock linkage, both points largely contributing to the huge traction/sensitivity/terrain tracking of the rear suspension. The only perfectible think was the leverage ratio, too constant (linear) across the travel. Judging by the main pivot location, they add a lot of AS so the PKB will increase consequently. Shock gets vertical mounting so a lot of rotational forces on the weak trunion mount. Now all the modern bikes gets a longer reach/wheelbase and a steeper Seat tube. So Kona, what set your process lineup appart now from a trek slash or other modern implementation of single pivot bike with linkage activated shock ?

Transition's 2018 Lineup - First Look
Yes but for the price they look like pretty cheap, low range alu frames, like 2016 norco range and sight. Gussets, irregular welds...
