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.

If You Use Tubes, Tannus' Tire Insert Might Be For You - Taipei Cycle Show 2018
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.

Red Bull Continue Live Broadcast Partnership With UCI
I think the technology exists. We could have combination of drones + onboard cams + fixed cameras + a way for the viewer to follow the complete run of a selected rider. But all of this would require an inflation of the budget. It would needs tons of drones because batteries don't last more than a few minutes, especially if drones have to run at full speed to follow the riders and to have backup machines. It would need relays to get the stream from all the different cameras and send them to the main broadcast relay reliably + some kind of redundancy. It would need some software development to make it doable with all the apps + website. It may need also work to get everything in sync too. I'm probably forgetting some details too. Would you accept to pay a fee to get that kind of service ? How many of us would be ready to pay an annual/monthly/per event fee to support that kind of service and make it cost effective for redbull or any other company to do it ? I have no idea and I'm not sure I would want to pay an additionnal subscription for this. I'm personnally happy with the current live broadcast + being able to watch replays onboard cams afterwards.

Mountain Bike Video Game Shred! Announces Sequel
@the-lorax: They have two ranges of hardtail on their catalog, Hardseven and Hardnine + a fitness line. Granted they are entry level sub 1000€ bikes but they are regular bikes. It is possible they don't show up in a US website though, I don't know but I see them on the french speaking version.

Opinion: Why Have Bike Makers Ignored this Grassroots Fix?
I bought a second hand banshee frame a few days ago and I admit it look really good for a frame that I presume was ridden hard. But then I don't really care and only wrap some old tube around the chainstay to quiet any hit by the chain.
