First Look: Shimano's New XTR is More Than Just 12-Speed
Isn't anyone excited about how much effort the put into this entire line redesign? the new hubs sound fantastic for strength and zero friction while coasting, the cassette has fully replaceable individual gears, the chain and retention look great! New brakes that are more linear (XT is already fantastic, whatever) OEM will adopt the hub standard no problem, better then USELESS XD with its fully pinned cassettes. Late to the party sure, but the king of the party for certain.

Sweet Protection Bushwhacker II MIPS Helmet - Review
Friend and I tried this helmet on as well, the adjuster was sharp like steel and quite difficult to adjust, also the helmet had odd pressure points like someone else pointed out, looks nice however and I'm sure its safe.

2011 Rocky Mountain Slayer 30. In great shape, recently rebuilt parts, many new pieces of last years. Fantastic starter bike for downhill\Shuttle\Trails\XC, it does it all! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fjrz3CTlLWw&t=99s 19" Frame but is a little short, will fit anyone I'd say 5ft6 to 6ft tall. - Marzocchi 160mm 55 Micro Ti (new seals end of last year and 10wt oil) - Freshly rebuilt Fox RP2 on Rear 165mm travel (end of last year) - 740mm Renthal Fatbar Lite (2015) - 2015 Shimano XT brakes, metallic pads, massive stopping power - 2x9 drivetrain, Sram X5 (many newish parts) nearly new KMC solid pin chain, 10 rides on new 11-36 Cassette, Chainring has 1 season on it 22/34 - New frame bearings and Bushings last year, newish bottom bracket, XT Cranks, new wheel bearings - Good condition 2.5 Minion DHF (best tire ever) and 2.35 Nevegal (fast rolling good braking), both superb shape (I have lots of tires to choose from for your needs) - Propedal on Fox doesn't work, lockout on Fork doesn't work, tiny scratches on one fork Stanchion. The video has a good description of the bike. I've ridden lots of XC trails and serious downhill trails on the Slayer, a great rig to get you going! I've taken a lot of care on this bike, keep it in the best condition possible to never break down on my group rides. Please call or text or contact via Pinkbike for more details.

Stan's S1 Wheelset - Review
What not to like? the weight for a durable set of wheels is totally fine, it seems that durability really takes a hit as you decrease weight, in hubs and rims. A good product that I bet will see huge adaptation in OEM as Stans is a pretty big name now.

A Walmart Bike vs Whistler Bike Park
That video does feel like hes just trying to show how cool he is to his Whistler park ski bum student-visa buddies that area is full off. Check out all my cool bikes, I'm so cool and cheating corporations is ok because they're corporations, hope I get a sweet viral video on youtube for more noodle-money to ride shore 24x7.

Intense Announces Lower Retail Prices and Hybrid Direct-to-Customer Sales
I think the new Carbine is 7000$ Canadian and comes with a Yari, hmmmmm, I can't imagine why people weren't buying there bikes. I guess boutique status doesn't go as far as they'd hoped. (they are very nice bikes though, no question)
