Video: 4 Value Hardtails Ridden & Rated - Field Test Roundtable
@kcy4130: to answer your question, I've got 110-130mm (depending on which fork I'm running) hardtail, a 160mm full suspension and a 160mm hardtail. I ride the 160mm hardtail the most. In reality, do I need a 160mm full suspension for my local trails? No but having that cushion up front makes it that much more fun than the shorter travel hardtail. In my opinion what is being missed by the naysayers is that we are hardtail purists, I don't want 160mm fork with soft plush travel. I want my fork to sit high in its travel and not pack up with repeated hits in a rock garden, in other words firm. What I'm actually going through in travel on your average trail is closer to 130-140mm and I save the rest for bottoming out of rollers. If I'm riding the shorter travel hardtail I'm constantly pushing its limits and because of that I'm hitting the extreme of geometry changes more often because I'm going through full travel mode frequently.

Review: Last Tarvo - A Sub-30-Pound Enduro Bike
@chrismac70: even new with warranty would give me hesitation after what my former local Yeti dealer had for an experience with them.

Opinion: Which MTB Innovations Do We Actually Need?
@R-M-R: Personally having ridden the Dominions A4 they are more than worth the price when compared to what the others brands offer in the same price range. On the other hand you're totally correct in how bike manufacturers are treating their local dealers. My shop (which is very reputable and popular in our tri-state area) was forced to pay cash in advance for this year's bike order almost eliminating his company savings just to have bikes on the floor in the shop, whenever the end up showing up.

Check Out: A Portable Fire Pit, Waterproof Duffel Bag, Extra Protective Handguards, & More
A few years back I received a boxer fracture to my right hand after punching a tree in a race which did not cause a crash. If I had one of those hand guards it probably would have cushioned the hand enough to just be bruised.

Video: Neko Mulally on Back-to-Back Testing in Frameworks Ep. 2
@brook3000: yeah man it's crazy. Years ago us East coast kayakers had Boatertalk.com as a way to share news and water levels then along came Facebook groups and something I had been a part of and using since almost the 90's was almost completely wiped out. Let's hope some of the old PB survives the onslaught of paywall articles.

@matadorCE: oh man my first real mtb was a '98GT Avalanche. Ice still got it as my around town and commuter bike with the original Z1 Bomber on it. Such a great bike and company.
