Pinkbike Poll: Do You Care About Sustainability?
@WAKIdesigns: I have no problem with a reviewer being biased. We all have personal preferences. I do, however, have a problem with the reviewer lacking integrity. #trollsforintegrity ;)

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Care About Sustainability?
@WAKIdesigns: Not really. You just need your favorite journo. Some people just have better relationships to certain company(/ies). It is media prevalent, regardless the product/service being peddled.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Care About Sustainability?
This article only serves as an interlude, lip service, to the new Pole bike that is to debut any time now.

Ridden and Rated: 7 Long-Travel 29ers
@whambat: As a refined hybrid of Specialized Enduro and Trek Slash I believe Rallon has upended both. I hope some media out there has balls to do an honest test of these three side by side AND, while at it, avoid downplaying and sugarcoating the shortcomings of each bike. Phrases like: "Seat angle could be steeper ", "Seat angle may be too slack for taller riders" should be corrected to: "Seat angle SHOULD be steeper" and "Seat angle IS too slack for tall riders". Accompanied by:"Riders above 6ft / 185cm are advised to look at competing products out there".

Ridden and Rated: 7 Long-Travel 29ers
@danthepirate: A real STA on Slash and Hightower is visibly slacker (just visualize distance from BB where the line running through seat tube intersects line running horizontally through BB). Also, SB5.5 has longer CS than Slash 437mm vs 433mm. It is almost the same as length as Hightower's 438mm though.

Mondraker Dune - Review
Fact is, the current generation Dune has reached American shores nearing the end of its product life cycle, with numbers that, apart for the reach, already start looking outdated. My take is we'll be seeing a next generation frame sometime mid next year. Maybe even as a 29er.

Raaw Madonna - Press Release and Interview
@polebicycles: IMO you'll need to halve the prices of those Taiwan made frames to keep the sales. Especially since geometry alone is no longer unique and it will be less so in the time to come. Good luck with that Made in Finland (vintage) Oakleyesque frame though! ;) (But, judging by the pricing trends, we should not expect it to become "people's MTB", despite the Manifesto)

Raaw Madonna - Press Release and Interview
Yes, aluminium is THE thing now. I guess you must have missed Pole's Clean Ocean and Robotization Manifesto. On a serious note, these companies should get a grip. You cannot price your frames on par with Nicolai and manufacture them in Taiwan, furthermore without all that CNC machining and anodizing bling. As much as I like this bike's geometry and engineering solutions, product-wise, it is still more a Radon than a Nicolai. (The same is true of Pole as well)
