MRP Ribbon Fork - Review
I do agree online sales are killing bike shops, but I dont entirely feel its their fault. Years ago someone could walk into our bike shop and ask for a rear wheel for their mtb. All we had to ask was if it was thru axle or qr, and we always had various qualities and quantities on hand. Now we have to ask thru axle, qr, boost, 26, 275, 29, sram, or shimano. Its impossible to stock all types and sizes with a variety of each to choose from, then when we tell them the cost since we can't put in an order of 5 or more to get a discount they'll have to pay close to msrp and that it will be 2-3 days before it comes in, they just go online, and I am 100% ok with that. I would do the same thing. Is the bike shop a dying industry, no. Is it a changing industry, yes. We make way more money on servicing bikes then selling merchandise these days, and we do charge an extra fee to install parts you bought inline. Why the heck should a customer have to pay more just because we're a bike shop? We need to evolve as the customer evolves, you really think just because 1 person out of 20 refuses to buy online is going to make a difference in whether a shop goes under or not?

The Cam McCaul Film - C3 Project Summer Series
@treekilla: it does have the knock block, but what they did was put spacers on the fork steerer tube, thus lowers the fork so it doesn't hit the frame (allowing him to do bar spins) and it elongates the axle-crown so its similar to a 27.5 fork, which keeps the geometry very close to a 27.5 remedy. He mentioned it in an interview here on pinkbike. I think it was the ask Cam McCaul anything interview, it was in the comments.

NS Snabb Plus 1 – Review
I honestly miss external brake housing, so much easier to deal with, so that's a nice little surprise!

Box Components Announces Revolutionary New Drivetrain
Actually, if they would use the 10-52 then it would be 520. You did a lot of extra math just to divide 52 by 11 lol (52/11=4.73)

Canyon Sender - Review
@allballz: That would be terrible for small bump compliance and pedal bob (you could use it for one or the other, but not both). The input forces from small and high frequency bumps would be much to small and fast to spin it up unless it was a small mass and pedal bob (which isn't important in DH, but why make it worse) would be too great a force at such a slow rate that it spin it up with ease unless it was a large mass, making it pointless. Trying to adjust for both would be a nightmare. F1 is only concerned with the high frequency, not both. Very interesting though!
