DVO Diamond 110 Boost Fork – Review
You should compare Diamond to Lyrik instead of Pike. Pike is a lighter fork for trail/xc bikes and the some hard charging guys are destroying the bushings in few months, necessating buying new lowers for 300€.

DVO Diamond 110 Boost Fork – Review
Been riding Diamond for two years and I'm super happy with it. Stiff chassis, good adjustments, quality damping, plush and best of all, the bushings haven't developed any play despite of frequent visits to bike parks and enduro races.

Pole Evolink 140 - Review
This bike is fucking fast. Especially on rough ground and slighly milder declines its ability to carry speed is incredible. I'm currently riding a Nomad3, but after riding with a friend in Malaga who had Evolink 140, I'm thinking I'm giving shitload advantage to Evolink 140 riders on local enduro competitions. I also like how the Pole makes 29" wheels look perfectly normal. Been kinda waiting for a long travel enduro 29er similar to this from Santa Cruz, but seems like boutique and big brands don't really innovate anymore, just make small iterations every product cycle. Even the V1029 came to life due to push from Minnaar, otherwise nothing would have happened.

Is This the New Santa Cruz Nomad?
Yeah, why design a 170mm bike around a water bottle.

Is This the New Santa Cruz Nomad?
@zepper: SC chainstay protector, same white as Nomad3 proto was 3 years ago, alu prototype of the same bike shown at SC factory, etc. What we see is the final version aesthically because it's carbon.

2017 Specialized Enduro - First Ride
@oyvin10: Kona has 475mm reach for a Large Process 153 (+25mm) and 510mm for XL - whopping +40mm compared to XL enduro 650B. And being from Finland I have to mention Pole Bicycles which has 510mm reach (+60mm compared to Large Enduro) for size L of Evolink 150 27.5 and 535mm for XL (+65mm compared to XL Enduro)! Comparing to SB6c you are basically comparing an outdated geometry to another outdated geometry.

2017 Specialized Enduro - First Ride
What strikes me most even in the pictures (without first looking geometry chart) is that they completely ignored the trend of really lenghtening the cockpit and reach. To me the geometry seems almost outdated even now, so imagine what it will be like in one or two years from now. With those numbers they should have atleast put out a XXL size (without increasing the standover much). Look at what Kona did for 2017, increased the cockpit for 15mm and they had it quite roomy even before! Can't believe I'm saying this, but Kona seems to be the only one of the big manufacturers that is pushing the limits. Otherwise the features of the new Enduro seem really nice, don't get me wrong.

Pinkbike Poll: Is the DH Bike Dead?
I have Santa Cruz Nomad3 with full DVO suspension (Diamond+Jade) and I feel it's not far from a DH bike performance wise, even in bigger bike parks.
