14 Slalom Bikes of Sea Otter 2017
Yup, take away here is that the days of cool creations for DS are over. Heck, only one shortened travel bike, & the Specialized SX Martin rode is something they came up with 3 or 4 years ago.

Formula CTS Technology – New Approach to Fork Tuning
The best part is they do put marketing speak in there, when they proceed to say that small bumps are the domain of low speed compression. Because only a marketer would make that mistake.

Top 3 Value Products In a Crowd of Pricey Parts? Sea Otter 2017
hmmm, not sure I agree at that price. RS Argyle RC: list price $490 (yes they still make them, because they don't make a straight steerer for the Pike DJ) Manitou Circus expert: list price is about $400. Both can be found for $50 - $100 less. & while they don't seem to make the Circus comp anymore, you can find them still for sale for about $300. I mean, that RST is cheaper than a 831 or Pike DJ, but I don't see going for it over the other stuff available, especially since a low A2C is important for some people on DJs, & that RST is going to likely be taller than most of this stuff even at $100, due to the 650b lowers(or it will be a 90mm fork when lowered, like when you buy a Pike DJ air shaft for a 650b Pike.)

BOS Returns With the Deville 35 - First Ride
@mikealive: MRP ribbon looks rad.. (ducks & runs.) Seriously though, the reverse arch has grown on me.

Marin Wolf Ridge: First Ride
@teamtoad: I mean, I actually like the design of this bike, but I have an example of what you're talking about: I hated the reverse arch on the Ribbon just like everybody else at first, but it's grown on me a lot, so much so that it's my next fork.

Schwalbe Addix – New MTB Tire Compounds
@McNubbin: buying a tire because of a stripe/=picking a specific brand because it's more aesthetically pleasing.

Schwalbe Addix – New MTB Tire Compounds
@jrocksdh: I don't believe it's painted, it's colored rubber. but since color can affect a rubber's properties(this is why most tires are black) it's possible it will react different, or even separate from the black rubber.

Schwalbe Addix – New MTB Tire Compounds
i could see some people switching just because of the stripe, if it's actually on the tires & not just for marketing pics. It's a cool look. Edit: media from other outlets confirms the production tires do have the stripes.

Race Face's New Next R Components - First Look
@jrocksdh: ehhhh... NextSLs are the only cranks I seem to hear a decent amount of reports of people breaking, especially around the pedal interface. not a lot, mind you, but more than other cranks.
