Video: Are 29/27.5" Mullet Bikes Faster Than 29ers?
Coming from a 29+ bike I am more a 27.5+/29 mullet advocate. The biggest issue I had with the plus bike was the vague handling with the frontend and the 27.5+ bikes I tested were a bit meh with a smaller wheelsize and less rollover ability than a pure 29. A 27.5+/29 mullet setup gives the traction of the plus size, the rollover ability of a 29 without that vague feeling and the weight penalty of a full blown 29+. I'm not a pro, just a guy enjoying his bike in the mountains who don't do timed runs.

First Look: Garmin's New Edge 530 and 830 Cycling Computers
Probably because they are one life support after the spartan debacle and can't financially enter a new market.

@f00bar: and will break in the first crash. I destroyed so many 150$ android phones it is ridiculous. Now I'm using a rugged android phone but it is so heavy, was more expensive and I wouldn't want it on my handlebar. Additionnally those android phones have a hard time lasting a day with regular phone use. When I am in he middle of nowhere in the mountains I prefer keeping the battery of my phone plenty enough in case of emergency.

Field Test: 3 Full Suspension Mountain Bikes Under $3000
@coffeepoop42069: I used to think the same. Then I upgraded my previous bike to 12 speed, found out the 30x50 gearing helped me climb stuppidly steep stuff I would have avoided or had me pushing the bike instead. Now I'm back on a 11sp trail bike but decided to install a 24t front ring because I want to climb the same stuff. I'm not Nino Schurter, don't race XC anymore and thus don't have much use of an high gear top end.

Having a backup tube to reach home doesn't mean it is your preferred option.

Making a Modern Bike Resemble a Retro Classic
you've gone all the way to do a custom paintjob...why did you add the Scott branding ?Unless you are paid by the brand I find it odd to be a rolling billboard on purpose.
