Carbocage Factory Racing to Ride Banshee Bikes in 2019
C'mon Banshee! Give us a new Prime that is a scaled down version of that Legend. \m/

Review: Cannondale Jekyll 29-1
@beast-from-the-east: It seems like an out of date choice IMHO. My bike's BB height is 339 mm. My previous bike's BB height was about the same as this C'dale. I never thought much about until I began riding my current rig. The difference in handling is staggering. I don't think I could ever see myself on a trail/AM/enduro bike with that kind of height again.

Guerrilla Gravity's Less Expensive, US-Made Carbon Frame
@duzzi: "The rear-end is aluminum and still made in-house." The weight ain't a big deal for heavy hitting bikes like this. Their alloys were not ridiculous for frame weights and these look to be less. That said, weight or lack thereof is soooooo over-hyped with bikes.

Review: Magura's Updated Vyron Wireless Electronic Dropper Post
Whenever I evaluate any component, frame or really anything I am considering spending money on I ask myself whether or not it is going to improve my experience over where I am now. Invariably, few things do and at best they are simply small notches upward. In addition, simplicity, durability are paramount. I can see that a electronically activated post could have benefits, but number one above all of my aforementioned points is that it must perform better than what already exists. Di2 has plenty of proponents, but having ridden with it on a number of road and mountain bikes it wasn't enough of a plus for me to justify a purchase. An electronic post may come along that does outperform current manual posts, but I do not believe we are there.

Review: The Banshee Legend 29" Rewards Aggressive Riders
Banshee hellz yeah! Now scale it down for update of the Prime. A 29er trail/enduro bike with this lay out (low shock position, open front triangle for a bottle mount, etc) could be insane. KS-link suspension is very similar to the DW-link and Banshee's ergo are great pedaling bikes.

Review: Santa Cruz Bronson V3
I will eat your shorts if Santa Cruz doesn't apply this frame design to the next version of the HT LT.

9 Bikes from Australia's 2018 Cannonball Festival
I think Peaty's bike is actually a HT LT.

Field Test: Yeti SB150
@fmogan77: Thanx, no thanx. I'll keep my Evil. Your dentist's result may differ. @sjflow: "Toothpaste blue" should be Yeti's halo build colorway. That's actually funny.

Field Test: Yeti SB150
Yeti has always been very proud of their bikes and the price reflects this. I haven't ridden this or any of this years SB's (100/30/150), but the 6 and 5.5 from last year did not blow me away for their costs. Conversely, you can purchase a Transition Sentinel carbon XO1 kit for $2500 less with a very similar (if not burlier) spec with a 0.5 lb difference and nearly the same geo.

Tested: 5 Ways to Hold a Tube on Your Frame
It surprises that no other bike companies have licensed and/or come with their own version of SWAT. It may be the best thing Specialized ever came out with and I know plenty of people that feel having that on the bike is a huge selling point.
