Orange Releases Short Travel Evo Versions of its Trail Bikes
@AyJayDoubleyou: Cotic is party manufactured in the uk (front end I believe) and bird get everything made in Asia so not really comparable and that’s before you talk about them also being direct sales

Mavic Placed into Receivership in France
@kusa: far from it, I have had 3 pairs of Mavic wheels in my time but they don’t offer anything in their range to suit my needs (width of internal rim, 30mm or over). I love their UST set up over the use of rim tape. When I could not get what I wanted from Mavic I bought a set of roval traverse carbon wheels (technically a specialized/ dot swss wheel so do they count as a big corporate monster wheel set) (great wheel set with the plug system for the spoke holes to make them tubeless). I still have them and had no problems. I bough a set of nextie carbon rims and had them built up at the local bike shop for second bike and have been more than happy with their performance. All this before I even talk about the tyres that they make and I know of no one that runs them (even if they come with the wheels for free). eBay would have loads of brand new sets when the crossmax xl and enduro did sell or came standard, everyone would change tyres.

From The Top: Karl Nicolai on Gearboxes, Geometry, & How His Company Found Its Niche
@aljoburr: I get that nicolai only offer a couple of different frames and that by having all the different adjusters built in the bike can be built up to the riders required. Bigger brand would rather set you 2 or more bikes to do the same job. I’ve always played around with frame set up (angle headsets, longer forks, chainstays flip chips, bb flipchips, shock lengths) but that was over a number of different bike. The g1 allows that on one bike. I know my set up would not work for the next guy. The top pros do get custom parts for their race rigs to suit them and the track they are racing on, why can’t I have the same built in to the frame for my riding.

I bought a mk1 g16 second hand (as I had a load of good non boost parts and didywant to start a full build) but have convinced a friend to buy a g1. Lots of small changes that definitely make the frame a lot better for a lot of different people. So flexible with all the different flip chips, mutators and shock travel options

Mavic Placed into Receivership in France
When you can buy a set of Chinese carbon wheels for the same price of mavics top alloy rims there start to be problems. I also think the fact that they never made wide rimmed rims had a big effect on their mtb side of the business, don’t know much about the road side though.

How Has COVID-19 Impacted Bike Retail in North America & Beyond?
In the Uk we are allowed to get out for daily exercise (walk, run or ride ect). I popped into my local shop which I tend to only use for essentials (small shop set up for road riding rather than mountain biking) and they have been bizzy with new bike sales and servicing. Definitely more people out in the local woods and parkland, easily spot the new guys and girls as they don’t have a helmet.
