Thule Velospace 918 Rack - Review
I work at a bike shop and get amazing discounts on Yakima as well as Thule, I still paid full price for a 1up USA rack instead, I have yet to find a better rack for 95% of riders. However, if you shuttle, recon racks are your go to!

Anneke Beerten and Cody Kelley Sign with Alchemy Bicycles for 2018
@hamncheez: Considering Cody's bmx background and style, I'm thinking he might actually like a shorter top tube and steeper head angle. Seems more his style.

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.
