First Ride: Knolly Chilcotin 6.0
@y9pema: same here. I think @scotteh must be all leg to be having this issue. Carry on everyone.

Andréane Lanthier Nadeau & Elliot Jamieson Sign for Commencal x 7mesh
@corporaltedbronson: I think it's pretty telling when the founder/principal put themselves at the end and promotes staff up front. I don't know anything about this company, but getting early-career professionals and aspiring talent to be stoked doesn't come easy to all GenX leaders. These leaders seem to get it better than most..

Review: Rocky Mountain Slayer C50
Are we still doing BB92 and 30mm spindles on 2024 bikes? Come on. Haven't we learning that these tiny bearing press fit BB's aren't the way to go? If I'm all those loonies gimme T47.

Neko Mulally's Frameworks DH Bikes Now Available for Preorder
Have a 5 n 5 Stinky with a double crown Bomber when livin' out of a NorthVan basement suite. Rode it on everything and it just delivered. Such good memories of this tight little trail slayer. Open the seat qr drop that saddle, put the Roach pads on and give'r down Ladies or WBP. Way less monkey motion and better wheelbase than the VPS Shore that followed. This frame brings back those feelings and I hope this project moves ahead with a shorter travel version in the years ahead.

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly: Pinkbike Editors' Favorite Clipless Shoes
Yup ME7s have been faithful and have little desire to upgrade save for the really hot summer days. Hope the new models drop a few grams and keep up the durability.

The Croc's rear housing mounts are such a wonderful FU to all things internal routing. Well done.

GT Becomes a "Stand-alone Business" as it Returns to Southern California
@OceanPhil: yup, I pretty much wanted all those bmx bikes and Powell deck but never had enough paper route $$ to make it happen. The Xizang was just something I saw in glossy magazines...but seemed far from local's reach. The big raffle prize for my hockey club's skate-a-thon was a factory Kuwahara..talk about drool. I think the PK Rippers had a model with a cool grey matte finish...saw a few with the older kids. Good memories all around..

GT Becomes a "Stand-alone Business" as it Returns to Southern California
Here for this too. So many GenX folks have nostalgia for GT. I wanted one of their chrome BMX bikes so badly in the mid 80's..and then in the early 90's the Zaskar and other hardtails were high on the list and usually decent value. We've seen outsiders try to wreck this company 9 ways to Sunday over the years, but they did hang on to some athletes for a really long time and that was nice to see. Anyways, I'm guessing this team 'gets it' and will do their best to pull on our heartstrings in 2024 with some cool bikes. Zaskar with T47 modern geo would be cool...or maybe just an re-issue model that serves as full rigid ATB. Does anyone know if GTbmx and GT mtb brands were the same owner in the later 80's / early 90's? Would this group have rights to the bmx brand (ie with the gold wing livery etc)?
