Video: Designing & Manufacturing a Bike Frame
@RedRedRe: I think you can design a good bike without being a super experienced / fast rider, after all the people that design F1 cars wont drive them, the moto GP guys wont ride those - This is why Cesar Rojo is pretty unique, to be able to ride at his level with his understanding of engineering principles is rare, but I would expect many bikes are designed by guys that don't ride nearly as much or as well and rely on the expertise of other riders to test the bikes for them, race teams etc.

@aljoburr: Naah, course not, everything is online nowdays, why bother? I mean if you can read it you can definitely understand it and apply it, right? While we are thinking, im off to read up about spinal surgery as I fancy a go at that on the weekend, what do I need a doctorate for? Out of interest, you don't have an engineering degree, do you?

Review: Cotic FlareMAX
@R-trailking-S: ah I didn't say you couldn't, but it isn't a technique typically used for cycle frames, they hydroform Ti tubing too if you have the coin for it.

@cunning-linguist: are you going to bore everybody by just writing 'seat angle' on every positive comment? We get it, you don't like the seat angle, very constructive.

Review: Cotic FlareMAX
@m1dg3t: You dont support companies that 'rip off customers'? You couldnt be further from the truth when talking about Cotic, they are not a huge shareholder based company out to maximise every ounce of profit from the consumer, I hazard a guess that Cy probably makes a decent living as the owner but at the expense of a building a business from the ground up (and all that entails) and I imagine he is not a 'rich' man still (though I do hope otherwise, if hard work pays then that is fair enough) You are basing your opinion on a bike you owned 25 odd years ago?! - 'Steel is Steel'? In which case then aluminium is aluminum and carbon is carbon?, why bother pay many magnitudes higher for 7075 when a low grade aluminoum is fine? Why pay for a Yeti frame? That 25 year old hardtail you had is probably exactly the same as a Cotic after all. Reynolds steel is expensive, machining / prepping steel is expensive, manufacturing on a small scale is expensive - nobody is 'ripping you off' here and I am sure with your misguided opinion and the fact that you feel the need to tell everybody that Cotic are ripping them off means that they would prefer you were not a customer anyway. Blinkers back on now....

First Ride: GT Fury Carbon Team
Arraiz knows his stuff so I expect the suspension kinematics will be dialled - He was the guy behind the K9 Industries bike which realistically was a top notch design let down by the fact they didnt seem to have the resources to push the aesthetics.

Video: 50to01 Hit Whistler's Dark Crystal & Hey Bud
Nice video from the 50-01 guys, much better than some of the videos where they travel half way around the world make 10 attempts of skidding along a log, try and ride backwards down a slope in the middle of the woods or do some 'sick jib' all stuff you could do a few miles from home.

Review: Cotic FlareMAX
Yea, crazy, but £3400 for a yeti frame is just fine.
