7 Bikes of the Tour Divide
This is the coolest thing I've read here, PB should cover more of this type of off-road biking. These riders show true grit, my hat's off to them. What riding background do riders typically have - cross/road/mtb? Where/when are the events? How many riders participate? Aside from reliability, what do riders look for in their choice of bike/wheel size, etc?

First Look: The New Specialized Fuse is a Hardtail, Built for Fun
The raw aluminum finish looks great and the lower standover height is a win. Are the adjustable dropouts primarily of interest to those wanting to go SS? A comparison of the Fuse Expert 29 on 27.5x2.8 and 29x2.6 wheels would be interesting. By upforking an OG Fuse from 120 to 140, would the head angle be in the ballpark of the new version's 66.5 head angle?

Review: 2019 Marin Alpine Trail 7 - Good Performance, Great Value
Overall this sounds like a capable bike in a wallet-friendly price. The Tektro brakes sound like they're pretty happening. As does the drive combo of SLX derailleur and e16 cassette. I don't ride as aggressively as what is shown in the pics here, not worried about the amount of seat drop noted by the reviewer, plenty for me. But a large with pedals will weigh at least 34 lbs, more than I prefer. Unfortunately it'd cost quite a bit to get the bike's weight below 30 lbs.

First Ride: Orbea's 2020 Occam Trail Bike is Light, Fast & Fun
The frame weight (presumably medium) is listed as 2720 grams with rear shock - what does that translate into for a complete build weight as tested? Any other current bikes with similar geo/travel specs?

7 Things to Know When You're Planning a Trip to Morocco
Great pics and an interesting read about an area I hope to experience some day. But there’s a quite an emphasis on the relative lack of creature comforts. With such amazing views and opportunities for intense riding, why is it assumed that adventure travelers will be disappointed if they’re not pampered?
