First Ride: Santa Cruz Megatower
Both this bike and the SB150 stuck with 12x148mm. If any type of bike should go 157mm, it's these long travel 29ers. As this just came out, I'm left scratching my head about future of 157mm. Is this going to be like 31.8 vs 35mm handlebars - 2 sizes in the marketplace year after year w/o a clear winner?

Field Test: Santa Cruz Bronson
@gumbytex: I'm amazed at how many are just fixated on this type of bike and nothing else. 150 fork? Nope, gotta be 160mm or its not perfect for my riding, they'll say. How is this the sweet spot for so many locales, so many kinds of riders? I just don't get it. Instead I say that they've drunk the same marketing coolaid and can't think of anything else. The 160mm aggressive 29er is one type of bike, yup. The international yardstick for all bikes to measure up to? Not so much.

First Look: Fox Racing's Fall 2018 Outerwear
@MTBKid27: you can have that opinion, all we're saying is that many many labels make sport outerwear jackets for much more so there's a market for Fox's pricepoint. Acre, Mission Workshop, 7 mesh, Kitsbow, Rapha, Arc'teryx, Patagonia...all make jackets that make this look Fox offering seem inexpensive.

YT is smart to pass -points been made and they can save their $ to stay afloat. In the same sense, a win could really help Intense but I don't want them over to get overextended.

Rocky Mountain Has 160 Bikes Stolen From Container
I don't even see this as bike theft. I just see it as merchandise theft to the tune of $500K. Here's a question - why is it cool in Fast & the Furious but so shitty when then boxes aren't filled with electronics so much as bikes? Same same if you ask me. Why do we root for Vin's character in the movie then ask for the worst to happen to the RMB B&E team?
