The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 47 - High Pivot Bikes: The Good, The Bad, and The Why?
so a lot of the OG high pivot bikes had floating brake mounts (which decoupled the braking forces from the suspension forces. With 4 bar these are effectively part of the linkage. With a return to single pivot, will we see a return of floating brake arms\mounts or were they useless?

Field Test: 10 Trail and Enduro Bikes Face the Efficiency Test
@Iberian: 300 watts at the pedal is 300 watts at the pedal but I don't think it tells the whole story - try dropping your saddle and pushing out 300w and you'll find how tired you get. Not suggesting that the saddle height isn't comparible across the bikes, but things like hip angle won't be - so watts at the pedal isn't everything (but unless you resort to using heart rate to figure out the rider's output, which probably doesn introduce a bunch of other issues, I can't see an alternate way of testing)

Field Test: 10 Trail and Enduro Bikes Face the Efficiency Test
it'd be interesting to try this test with (say) 10lbs strapped to the frame of the stumpy, to separate out suspension design/efficiency from pure weight. I've seen this done on a couple of roadie tests and the wieght makes surprisingly little difference

Field Test: 10 Trail and Enduro Bikes Face the Efficiency Test
so if the p-train goes uphill like an enduro bike, and downhill like an enduro bike, and weighs like an enduro bike.. should it be measured against the other enduro bikes?

Check Out: MTB Specific Tow Rope, Lightweight Tools, Wind Protection, Hitch Racks & More
@yinyang: if you don't need 'bike specific' - one of these is basically the same for $15. I guess we shouldn't be surprised that the company who charges £25 for a book is expensive for towropes too..

Taj Mihelich's How to Pump Illustrated: The Trail is Giving Away Free Speed
I find it easier to learn on a pump bike - you get quicker responses, and due to the tyres/pressure/geo its a lot more satisfying (pumping round a whole lap of a pump track on a trail bike is tough). That said, if you don't have a pump bike, just go ride what you've got

Now THAT Was A Bike: Nico Vouilloz's Sunn Radical+
that XTR shifter is (I think) 98-onwards as well as it has the little push-outs for attaching the bar-end shifter

First Look: Transition's All-New Spur is a Rowdy XC Bike
I had a transition preston back in 2005 - 4" travel, burlier build than an XC bike, 4 bar suspension. They should have re-used the name
