@WAKIdesigns: Clean branding is one of the harder things to get right... Santa Cruz got it right.

BOS Returns With the Deville 35 - First Ride
@diggerandrider: Welcome to the French mentality of customer service. I have to deal with multiple French brands, and it is a super common trait they all seem to share...

Commencal's New E-Bikes
@Bustacrimes: How's the view from your prejudiced high horse? Claiming you know so much about me and you couldn't be further from the truth. In the span of 3 comments, you've done this 3 times. Well done. One thing you should learn is how to identify problems and their causes. Your actual problem is with how messed up your land usage laws are. Maybe you should try directing your frustration there? The future of mountain biking in my area is fine because the laws aren't stupid and people assume responsibility for their own actions.

Truvativ and TLD Collaborate on New Handlebar Collection
Seriously... Sram branding is godawful. Love their products, hate the look.

@Bustacrimes: Hahahaha you clearly do give a monkeys, you are incredibly butt hurt over this topic. FWIW, all of the bikes in my quiver are human, pedal powered. I'm just not that much of douche canoe to dictate to other people how they should enjoy their cycling experience. Ride the bike you want to ride and stop telling people how you think they should.

RockShox's New Pike - First Look
It's not simply a fork that feels "nearly identical to the old one"... it's a fork that does that while being lighter, have more tire clearance, and now Boost compatible. I'd say that's a nice improvement. Now, if you want it or not is a different question altogether.

@Bustacrimes: You are clearly out of touch with how things are going in the Alps (not sure where you are located, but "bollocks" suggests the UK?). Double digit growth refers to growth at 10% or higher, which it is growing at. It may not be in your particular neck of the woods, but rest assured it is that way in many places. If you think this doesn't appeal to many people living in the Alps where the valleys are flat and climbs shoot straight up, then you don't understand the market in the Alps. But glad you speak for the majority of existing people riding a mountain bike though.

​Polygon Square One EX - Video
According to bike rumor, this bike pedals better than most 120mm bikes and descends like a legit 180mm (or more) bike. They were blown away, to say the least. The cliche is apparently no longer a cliche... https://www.bikerumor.com/2017/04/12/a-new-era-of-kinematics-naild-r3act-2play-suspension-makes-the-polygon-square-one-ride-like-nothing-else/

@Mac-Aravan: So true. To all of those who are surprised by this move, why would you think that a European brand would not want to be a part of the e-bike phenomenon that is sweeping across Europe with double digit growth? As a business move, it makes complete sense. What many people are failing to grasp is that e-bikes help non-bikers more easily access the other sports they want to do. Two examples: ski touring and rock climbing. My friend owns a bike shop who is selling e-bikes like crazy to ski tourers needing to travel across lots of dirt/dirt roads to finally access the snow and boulderers who don't want to waste their energy hauling crash pads far to the spot. E-bikes have a far broader appeal than many of you are noticing. Their usage in the Alps is very, very utilitarian and practical.
