I raced bmx as a kid but didn't so much as touch a bike for over ten years. I found myself looking for a new outlet when it wasn't snowboard season, then I found mountain biking... there's no looking back now Wink

Good move. Everyone should stay away from Bellingham.

@BoneDog: I will admit though, I've ridden the new pike and 34 but not the 36.

Push ACS-3 Coil Spring Conversion Kit - First Look
@BoneDog: I've been in the market and testing/renting bikes for a purchase next season. In fact I was on a new pike just 2 days ago... I was also on air suspension for the past several years, after starting out on coil, and just last season went back to coil front and rear. I never want to go back to air if I can help it! At only 145lbs it makes sense that this is not an issue for you... I weigh a full 30lbs more than you with gear and I would venture to say most people reading this weigh a fair bit more than you do. Also I would assume that the demands of your local trails aren't quite as steep and rough as what we have in the PNW.

If your an aggressive rider and set up these air forks to not blow through travel you would understand... especially on any chassis under 160mm. Arm pump is a mother when your fork isn't supple enough off the top!

Connor Fearon's Kona Operator - Bike Check
I'm sorry but simply because of where I live(PNW), and what conditions are like 75% of the year, the last thing I want on my bike is another set of bearings that is pressed into my frame. Especially in a place that is constantly having muck spattered on it from front and back! Threaded bottom brackets are much more user friendly for home mechanics, plus the tools are cheaper too. The only advantages I see are wider spacing in that area of the frame since you don't have external cups and the designers can make a stiffer bike, also its cheaper to manufacture. Due to the now "standard" boost spacing, stiffness in the bottom bracket area shouldn't be an issue for designers and the cost savings is fairly negligible that the manufacturer gets to not thread the frame since they need to bore the bearing press surfaces anyways. I'm a stickler when it comes to a threaded bottom bracket and it really is a deal breaker for me if a bike doesn't have one.
