Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that one was in POY and has already been POD.

Opinion: Calm Reflections of Big-Wheeled Panic
@tomlynchwatson: I see what you tried to do there. They explained to me how I could be having more fun. And I am. Having better suspension, a bike that fits me better, better geometry and a very different wheel/tyre combo has given me the bike I was looking for for a long time. For instance, when I reviewed this: https://www.pinkbike.com/news/Lapierre-X-Flow-712-review-2013.html The bike I have now is very close to what I thought this bike could be with a few tweaks...

Opinion: Calm Reflections of Big-Wheeled Panic
@headshot: Yes, and having learnt what I have learnt in the past few years, I wouldn't ride either of those bikes today. That was four years ago and thanks to working with PB I have been able to ride a lot of different bikes and speak to a lot of people who are smarter and/or faster than I am, so I understand a lot more today than I did then.

Opinion: Calm Reflections of Big-Wheeled Panic
@nojzilla: I'm on my third 29er and this is the first one that I think is really right, I think they are still somewhat hit and miss, depending on the brand/model. My current one is the first one that has really convinced me that they are better. My times reflect that too, I am beating my times on longer-travel, smaller-wheeled bikes pretty much everywhere on it.

The Interview: Chris Porter
This interview could have been about 20x as long, the call to Chris ended up at around 2 hours long, if I remember correctly, but you have to call it at some point...

The Interview: Chris Porter
Regardless of whether you agree with his ideas or not, I believe we should respect Chris as he put his money where his mouth is. You can go and ride a Geometron and decide if you agree or not. I interviewed him precisely because I know he has strong opinions and is not worried about sugar-coating them.

Mondraker Foxy, M, dream build - PRICE DROP

$2500 EUR
My Mondraker Foxy Carbon needs a new, loving home. I'm reluctant to sell this as it genuinely changed the way I think about bicycles and what they can do, but I haven't ridden it since recce for the Valberg EWS last year... The build is pretty much no compromise, dream bike-kinda spec: Mondraker Foxy carbon, M RS Pike RCT3 160 RS Monarch RCT3 (full of tuning bands) SRAM X01 shifter, mech, carbon cranks, XX1 cassette and chain SRAM Guide Ultimate brakes w/Centreline rotors, 180mm F+R RS Reverb Stealth (2017 spec), 150mm, LH remote under bar Renthal Fatbar Carbon 40mm Renthal Apex stem, 32mm Cane Creek 110 headset DT Swiss EX1501 25mm (not pictured here) Schwalbe Supergravity tyres Selle San Marco Native One carbon saddle Oury grips In all it weighs in at a touch over 12kg and is burly enough for EWS, but light and agile enough to ride every day. I am sad to be selling this bike, so I won't sell if the price is not right. Please don't waste my time with silly offers or trying to swap it for 2003 Kona Stinky.
