Abbey Bike Tools Celebrates 10 Years with Titanium & Walnut
"These kits are aimed at the discerning bike mechanic who ... has some disposable income." That person doesn't exist.

Review: The 2023 Yeti SB120 is a Comfortable Trail Cruiser
It's not an apples to apples comparison, but the Element C50 is $1000usd less than the SB120 C1 build. So I can hardly describe Rocky Mountain bikes as being "worst value". Value is subjective though so any conversation on that topic is a waste of time, but I'm confident that our MY23 pricing is as competitive as it can be given the costs we needed to consider leading up the MY23 pricing releases. If I were a customer that likes what Yeti does as whole, I would buy that SB120 without concern about the sticker price because I would have determined the value is there. Customers that worry about derailleur spec and hyper-specific, singular details, are the ones that have different value metrics and complain about pricing.

Field Test: Allied Cycle Works BC40 - The Fun Race Bike
@adamszymkowicz: Thank you for this very anecdotal report. I can assure others here that warranty cases for Elements are very low when compared to the number sold, and compared against our range of platforms. While some frame failures exist, as they do with all makes and models within the industry, we do our best to support the customer as efficiently as possible. The current supply chain issues have made getting replacement parts challenging but we are slowing catching up as the tide shifts on supply vs demand. Meanwhile I will keep sending my almost 2 year old Element on terrain beyond it's intended use without worry. North Vancouver isn't kind on bikes but somehow (anecdotally of course) the Elements that staff are riding locally are holding up just fine.

Akta Apparel is "Another MTB Company"
The tall leg cuff is really nice. No gorby gap, has nice overlap with chamois. and does a good job of keeping the pads in place. Also spreads the grippers across a wider area so no hot spots after wearing them for hours at a time.

I received an pre-production sample after giving some early feedback during the design and testing fitting stages. The knee pad is very comfortable to slip on and stays put nicely due to a just-right amount of silicone grippers and a generous upper sleeve. That long upper sleeve also prevents pressure points, even after wearing the pads for an entire day. The D30 insert is shaped well, and also features a decent number of small cutouts to help with breathability. Another thing I appreciated is the ease of removing and installing said insert when I wash the pads. No struggling to get things back together. The materials feel good and the stitching has been staying put so far. I have about 2 dozens rides on them and they seem no worse for wear after all those rides and washer+dryer cycles. I can definitely recommend them. FWIW I'm 6ft tall, 180lbs, 33" inseam, and the large pads fit perfectly.

Bike Check: Caleb Holonko's 27.5" Kona Process X
@vonroder77: To be fair, the LG 27.5 Slayer was cancelled due to lack of sales. We made them, and not enough people, meaning distributors, shops, and riders, bought them. It did not make sense, from a commercial point of view, to keep it in the lineup. We tried, and the people were not interested.

Review: The Digit Datum & Its Integrated 'Analog' Suspension
I recommend changing to a ZS44|56 headtube to accommodate the use of press-in anglesets to further fine tune geometry to personal tastes. The headtubes will be less expensive as well.

MUST WATCH: Caleb Holonko Turns the Lights Out
Holonko; does it without the gnar build up and production. Sends it twice as big and twice as clean; absolute talent.
