Radical Bicycle Co Launches 'Grim Ripper' Hardtail
I understand that sliding dropouts mean both wheelsizes fit, but what about BB height? The only means left to adjust BBH for each configuration is by using different forks. But then angles change as well and so does fore/aft balance.

Kona Announces New Aluminum Process X
I bet many people were waiting for this frame, too bad they spec'ed it so terribly. Also sad times for such an iconic brand that has produced so many classics.

Spotted: Privateer's Prototype 161 Enduro Bike
Actually, the 1st gen of the 161 & 141 uses a frame part that isn't generic at all. The lower part of the "seat tube" is constucted from two square profiled halves welded together that house the pivots and BB. The two halves are either forged or machined, so certainly more costly than stock tubes. This wasn't the original design, but they ended up going this way after not being satisfied with dropper insertion length.

28 Handlebar & Stem Setups of Enduro World Cup Riders
If you go too wide you really limit your mobility and actually hurt cornering. Straight line control over the rough is betterthe wider you go though, so it's really a compromise between the two. At least that's what I've personally found after trying different options.

Rockrider Release New Feel Range
Apart from the curvy top tube this looks a lot like a Whyte T140. The rear end is identical, geometry is very similar too. Spec for the price on the limited edition is amazing. The look will probably divide opinions but you can't deny that they have upped their game.

Video: Fergus Ryan Prototype Testing with Privateer Bikes
Unfortunately they will have to choose between UDH and chainstay adjustment on the production version. Not possible to combine the two AFAIK. Mullet/29" option looks catered for already. Tool mounts, I think I saw a pic of a protype that had them or tey were mentioned somewhere. More room for the bottle seems to have been taken care of too. I'm not very optimistic about weight, but hopefully they went for custom tubes this time. If the price remains reasonable and the build quality as good as on the current frames they're going to be great bikes.
