New 'Super Wheel' Prototypes Still Claim to Offer Power Assistance Without a Motor... And We're Still Skeptical
I like how he bolted the wheel to the shittiest bike one could find... just to make it look somewhat fancy.

Opinion: How Many Batteries Does a Mountain Bike Really Need?
What trickles down to the more budget oriented builds is what truly matters. It shows that a technology is mature and ready to serve the public rather than showcase its superiority. Already in early 19th century electronic clock was a thing, but it took more than a century to make the quartz clock mainstream and cheaper to produce than a mechanical movement. We need to get to the point when an electronic shifter/mech combo will be more precise AND cheaper to produce/install than an equally capable mechanical system.

Pinkbike Poll: How Much Further Should the Longer, Lower, & Slacker Trend Go?
As we stand now, we've pretty much explored the heights of progressive. I've bought lots of anglesets in my life, simply because just until couple years ago, most bikes were stupid steep (and flexy). I've recently committed to remove the angleset to get my 29er enduro bike back to about 64.5deg HA. It's made the bike about 2/3 inch shorter in wheelbase, and definitely much more manageable and enjoyable. A slack and long front end is nice and stable at high speed, saving me from the odd OTB. But unless I rode super aggressive and deliberately pushed my front wheel into the ground all of the time, my 63deg HA felt like I was washing our halfway through the corners. Sure, we can lengthen the CS to counter this sensation. This is how my Norco Aurum with 455mm chainstays and 62.5deg HA feels, and it's fine because it's a DH bike. I ride it for 2-4 minutes and I give it all. But there is only so much bike in terms of wheelbase that a trail/enduro rider can manage on a long and tight technical trail like those seen on EWS. Also, especially on my local trails, the 63ha bike made me feel disconnected. Don't get me wrong, I still love my DH bike. But riding trail bikes with similar geometry is overkill unless we wanna ride the same DH trails.

First Look: Mondraker's New Enduro and Trail Bikes
"They practically invented modern mountain bike geometry" @BenTheSwabian: That is a bold statement. In fact, the only thing they brought to the table was the zero stems, which nobody uses anymore. My 2009 Stinky Six was 2-3 degrees slacker than the 2009 Foxy.

5 Reasons Bike Prices Will Probably Keep Rising in 2022
"However, the price is still magnitudes higher than it has been previously as the above graph from the Financial Times shows." Magnitude is a numerical quantitative measure expressed usually as a multiple of a standard unit. In the realm of decimal numbers, 'magnitudes higher' means tens, hundreds, thousand times the original value. I believe we are far from such a price increase. I may be wrong though as I am not a native EN speaker.
