Wolf Tooth Announces Ripsaw Aluminum Flat Pedals
Simple to use longer pins at front/Rear edges & shorter pins in middle. Like magic you'll have the same effect as concave pedals. I don't think the majority of riders can tell the diff anyway but it's an easy option. Ultimately, why spend $200 for pedals when there are lots of great pedals for a fraction of that.

Review: Raaw Madonna V3 - Yes, It's Still Great
@ohio: Have you ridden both of these bikes we're talking about? Both the Pole and the Raw? The Leverage ratio and anti-squat numbers are actually quite similar. No complaint. Just making the point that the innovators are usually ignored while the copycats get the credit.

Video: The Riders Overlooked By Modern Geometry
I never imagined so many great bikes [& variety/options/sizes] as we have currently! I think the problem is that most folks don't actually "ride" bikes unless they think they will like them. I encourage people to ride/try/demo a larger frame, slacker head angle, longer wheelbase, longer travel bike than you ever thought you'd like... I think most riders will be amazed at how fun and rideable new geo bikes are. Happy trails!

Review: Raaw Madonna V3 - Yes, It's Still Great
This bike looks to be great! It's also a near copy of models from years back made by the Nicholai and Pole brands. I compared this bike to a 2018-2020 Pole Evolink and the geo is very close. I've found riders tend to ignore [or criticize] innovation that they have either missed or never experienced thus feels better to trash it than admit they don't know how it works or rides. Being a near re-creation of the Evolink 158 I bet this is an amazing bike! The Vikkela 190/190 is already another level being missed by most. Now bring on the criticism; "that's a DH bike", "the BB's too high", "wheelbase is too long for tight corners", says everyone who's never ridden a Pole [or Nicholai]. The cutting edge is always a narrow path and one most people simply can't handle, metaphorically speaking or otherwise.

Men's Category of Slopestyle Will Not Proceed - Crankworx Rotorua 2024 [Updated with FMBA Statement]
Report Scope: The Mountain Bike Market has been on a remarkable growth trajectory, with a total worth of US$ 6.26 billion in 2022. It is projected to maintain its ascent, achieving a 12% Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) from 2023 to 2029, culminating in an impressive value of nearly US$ 13.86 billion in 2029. In a sport that generates billions of dollars by leveraging standout athletes risking their lives in extreme videos and competitions this boycott was long overdue. Replaying crash videos [Friday Fails & countless others], seems to be a favorite of Pinkbike' and many other mtb outlets. I'd like to see an industry wide boycott including all mtb disciplines asking to be rightfully compensated for generating endless sales of all things mtb. Perhaps that would get their attention and hopefully the athletes just portion of what they bring to the industry... which in reality is most of it. (P.S. Pinkbike: stop making it so difficult to opt-out of cookies. That's just another way of making $ off the backs of your readership. It sucks!)
