Giant Factory Off-Road Team Expands for 2019, Moves to Fox Suspension
@sam264: Fully agree and have seen similar issues with several of local OE specced Giants. Aftermarket stuff seems awesome still but the OEM market hampered reliability. In my experience, only seems related to shocks thus far, forks appear as functional and robust as ever.

@mattradical: Definitely a huge fan of DVO's stuff, been riding their forks for three years now and really don't have much interest in anything else. Unfortunately, their OEM stuff seems to have suffered a number of reliability issues (of which they've provided crazy fast support), especially the Jade and Topaz fitted as stock to the Reigns and Trances. I hope to see them have an awesome aftermarket presence but definitely hope they stay out of the large scale OE market for the next few years.

Interbike Cancelled for 2019
If you're bored by this news story you should add some zest to you day by googling Axell Hodges. I heard he rides 240lbs Kwakasuki 450 and does way cooler than bicycle trick ever will be.

Do you think Axell listens to music when he rides his 240lbs Kwakasuki 450?

I googled Axell Hodges but couldn't remember if I was looking for him on 240lbs Kwakasuki or if he was 240lbs on Kwakasuki 450. Pls explain.

Spotted on Social: 2 Wild Saves From Valparaiso
@BrendanVDB: With all due respect I'd contend that finding a way to bring the sport to the masses is healthy for growth through viewership. Becoming a mountain biker is not a requisite to watching the events, I highly doubt everyone watching Olympic swimming is an avid swimmer or that everyone at a Supercross race rides a moto every weekend, they just wanna watch someone swim real fast or throttle through a whoop section. Likewise, we aren't or shouldn't be trying to convert every damn person into a mountain biker although having venues and audiences for racers to demonstrate their craft makes the entire sport more accessible to the weekend warrior types. Spectator value carries substantial importance to any sport by adding additional value through sponsorship exposure or admissions that can ultimately benefit athletes and their own pursuits within the sport. They key component is organization and though our sport in particular has a long way to go, the general positivity within the mountain biking community permits grassroots racing organizers like those in some of these urban events to promote the sport for more than just a money grab. I agree that mountain biking belongs in the mountains, but these are versatile machines piloted by brilliant athletes, let them show the world what's possible on two wheels.

Review: Santa Cruz Bronson V3
@Captain-Ron: DT specs the 350 with the 18t ratchet because most mountain bikers are lazy, don't take care of their stuff, and still expect it to work. The 18t ratchet is mega durable and we get tons through our shop that look like hell, they've never been greased or cleaned and they still work flawlessly. The type of rider that is seeking the benefit of a 54t ratchet is typically more inclined to take care of their stuff, still a mega stout system but does require more maintenance. If it's a huge concern to you on an 8k bike, talk to your sales dude at your local Santa Cruz shop, they'll happily include and install a 54t ratchet and probably some solid pedals if you're buying a bike like this from them. The demographic that can afford an 8k Bronson isn't always the demographic that knows how to maintain it, DT knows and probably doesn't want to have to warranty every dirt filled 54t hub that only stripped because it's owner didn't know you need to clean a freehubs.
