First Ride: RockShox RS-1 Fork – Carbon, Inverted, Expensive and for 29ers Only
It reminds me of many concept cars. I am left thinking why would someone wast all that time on this.

REEB Cycles All-Mountain - Review
I rode a stumpjumper evo and was happy to give it back. I then rode a reeb AM geared and almost bought it right there because it was super fun.

Opinion: 26 vs 27.5 vs 29-inch Wheels
This whole debate makes choosing my new bike choice a pain. I have an 18 year old 26" mtb that I want to replace this year with a new slack / aggressive steel hardtail. Most of what I am reading is some sort of personal defense on why their bike is the best and something else sucks rather than pointing at the real truths. I test rode a specialized evo 29er with limited time on a smooth trail yesterday and the only 2 things that I noticed were it took a little more effort to get it going and when pointing down a steeper bumpy section it was confidence inspiring. I test rode a yeti 575 650b in a bike park and the things that I noticed were how fun and playful it was, also it was confidence inspiring, and once in a slower technical section I noticed it felt a touch clumsy for a moment. At the moment it feels like the bike industry is in a mad dash to control the 650b market more than they are really trying to figure out who can best benefit from having one. I know that I can be happy on any bike because I have no doubt that they are all fun with strengths and weaknesses. I miss the playfulness of my bmx bike as a kid but like the way the 29er seems to smooth the trail. I like how quick my trek 930 26er gets up to speed but don't like how it feels like the front is glued to the ground. I don't bomb downhill and I don't race XC so maybe they made the 650b for me. Hard to know for sure with all the chatter going to go test a kona explosif today wish I could take it into the mountains.
