Field Test: Trek Remedy 9.9
@mikelevy: I would also like to see a table, but a really detailed one (E.g. climbing would have multiple categories such as technical, fireroad, steep etc. Descending would be broken out in to cornering, rough stuff, steep, mellow flowetc)). I would like to see the rankings based on the other bikes so the best bike gets a 1, second best gets a 2 etc. Then at the end, people can look at the categories most important to them and see which bike best fits their desired purpose. It's not a "this bike is the best" ranking - rather a "this bike is what you're looking for" ranking. BTW, really enjoying the series.

Radon Launches New Swoop 170 Enduro Bike
This may be a good bike, but it's one of the worst press releases I have ever seen. Their selling points are: "the best-specced version comes with good parts" - um, yeah I would assume the best version comes with good parts thanks, "some orange bits here and there" woohoo. Otherwise it's just a list. At minimum a press release should tell me what it's intended use is, and why it does that well.

Going Deep: Inside Fox's GRIP2 Damper
@mikelevy: I've got to agree with @BCDradon here. While I know you're not really about advocacy - your readers are your "customers" and we would appreciate it if you threw the weight of pinkbike behind our cause to get better customer service from fox. Fox says - don't ride it when it creaks, it's not safe, but then take months for a part to become available to fix the creak. It's terrible. There's an article that I guarantee your readers would be interested in - how do we get the big monopolistic suppliers to care about the consumer, because right now it seems fox is giving us the big f#$% off.

Going Deep: Inside Fox's GRIP2 Damper
It would also be awesome if they had the parts to fix said creak. True story, I had a fork go off for warranty in the first week of September. A week later, I ordered a brand new Hyundai - according to the dealer, it hadn't been built yet. The car arrived last week after being built and shipped (yes shipped, on a boat) from Korea - but still waiting on a f'n CSU from Fox.

Video: 27.5 vs 29, Suspension Set-up & Measuring Progress - The Privateer Episode 4
Proper suspension setup is the best money I spend anytime I buy a new bike. Suspension Therapy in North Van has made a huge difference for me every time.

NSMBA Embraces Building Diversity in the Mountain Bike Community
OK everyone, take a deep breath. This costs us nothing, and if it makes someone feel more welcome, then it's worth it. If you don't think it would make you feel welcome - that's fine, move along. If you are already welcoming, that's great - keep doing it. The comments I read here are a big over-reaction to a simple statement asking everyone to be nice to everyone. Take a breath, be nice, ride your bike - it's that simple.

That's how you do marketing right. How long until the gnarnaimo name catches on? I like it.

Race Face Next R Carbon Cranks 170 w/ 32 tooth Race Face chain ring and Bottom Bracket. My lovely wife gave me these as a gift, but after changing my bike I decided to use the cranks that came with it. The non-drive side is brand new after a crash replacement warranty due to user error - some idiot (me) didn't screw in the pedal all the way and slip threaded the insert. Race Face was nice enough to give me crash replacement. The drive side, chain ring and BB only have about 10 rides on them. I will ship at buyers expense, but give preference to local buyers.

Must Watch: Mark Matthews in Cappadocia, Turkey
Can I request regular updates on this place? It's not worth making the trip for one or two trails, but that terrain looks awesome and has the makings of something special in the years to come.
