The New YT Capra - Everything You Need to Know
@bananowy: Sure, but if you did not have to portage anything on your back during a ride would you still? Try it sometime.

The New YT Capra - Everything You Need to Know
@Extremmist: That is an awful lot of water to carry on a sub-2 hour ride. If every ride you do is a 3 hr+ epic awesome, but not having to carry all of that on yr back is quite nice.

Behind the Bike: The Merida One-Sixty
@TheRaven: Actually, I think there is quite a bit of difference between the suspension designs despite how much homogeneity one believes there is.

Commencal Announces BC-Edition Furious and Meta
"3.799 USD" Three dollars and seventy-nine cents is cheaper than a six pack. I'll take a couple.

The Trippin Fellaz Show Us What Mountain Biking is All About – Video
Yeah, the music kills it. I am more of singular focus and simply want to ride so this said nothing to me.

There's a Fine Line Between Clever and Stupid - Opinion
@vernonfelton: On point article sir. I am often asked about bike fit, geometry, performance maybe because I've riding mountain bikes for over thirty years (not that I'm any good at it) and maybe because I've become a de facto info source for my friend's local Evil bike dealership. We both know that there have been awesome bike all along and who knows what tomorrow's geometry designs will hold. However, I always say to know thyself. Know how you ride, where you ride and where you want to ride when investigating a new rig. I, for example like big travel bomber bikes as my daily drivers. My current ride is a Wreckoning and sure it may be more bike than needed on many of my rides, but that's what works for me. Beyond that, I say get something that fits, feels good and you like the esthetics. Party.

Mondraker Foxy Carbon RR SL Review
@jwrendenver: I thought the same of the $10K Bronson V.1 in 2013. I demoed one and it was good, but not $10K good. SC sure sold plenty of them though. Mondraker, I don't know. We'll see.

We've Got Questions: Digging Deep at Enve
@wibblywobbly: ^^^100%. Enve makes some nice stuff, however I have seen far too many of their rims/wheels break for me to consider them. My personal experience with carbon rims was in fact excellent. I built a set of 27.5 LB heavy duty 35's onto Hadley hubs with Sapim race spokes 32h. They were absolutely bombproof for my nearly three years on them. Plus, considering that I am over 200 lbs and had them on 160mm travel sled that I ride like an angry bear this is impressive. They never once flatted, burped any air or came out of true. The only time a spoke broke was from a stick getting caught in the wheel. I'd still be on them today if had not changed wheel size. My investment on these was just under a $1000. In the same period of time I had friends break, ENVE's, Atomiks, Nox, SRAM and others. Their costs were generally more than double what I paid. ENVE and some of the others may have better warranties, but I'd rather be riding than thinking about RA numbers. Interestingly, last year Vital put over two years on a handbuilt set of LB's for a DH bike that remained trouble free too. BTW, I think the absolute best product ENVE makes is their cross fork.
