Giant Reign Advanced 2018 - First Ride
Thats absolute rubbish...I have been on the Reign since 2015 and never has that been an issue. I live in Switzerland where the climbs can be long and steep and have never had an issue with suspension bob(for God sakes, its a full suspension bike)and in my experience, a little movement is key to so that the tires always stay in contact with the gravel, fire road type of conditions. To stiff and the wheel spins out, can only be compensated with low tire pressures. Alot of the time riders have no idea how suspension setup works, some run 20-25% / and some ride 30-35%. Depends on where you live and what you ride. Almost every shock has some sort of lockout, right? Now to the uphill performance, we live in a time where there is 11 and 12 Speed drivetrains with changeable chainrings..I'd bet mounting Eagle on a DH bike will get you up the hill... I for one do not want a carbon back end...after a season of riding with no issues. For me, Aluminium rear Ends make sense. As an experienced mechanic, I have seen quite a bit and most of these issues are due to lack of greasing, tightening and just generally checking the bike once and a while...

Giant Reign Advanced 2018 - First Ride
C'mon guys..give Giant a break. The actual fact that they make amazing bikes and this is just a prime example. No crazy spec, no swappable 27.5+/29 bull****, no marketing mumbo jumbo, just a awesome Enduro bike that works. Some brands are spec'ing Star Trak handlebar/stem combos for more bucks. The way I see it is that the market is complicated enough..this is exactly what the riders of these bikes Need. Simplicity Looks great, will ride great...and offer enough models with a good spec and pricing is fair.

The Perfect Season: Rachel Atherton - Video
Well, Tracy Moseley stepped down from the International Enduro Stage and only competing in some races...maybe Rachel should try her luck at 1-2 races this year(kinda like Sam Hill did) and see what the result will be. The Brits have alot of the worlds best riders(Hart, Gee etc), maybe a top woman Brit in Enduro is the way to go. By result I mean if she finds it a challenge too. I am pretty sure she has the fitness and Stamina to be right up there, Trek will get more coverage and I think alot off audiences and PB Readers will agree that ist sometimes boring always seeing the same Person win(have totally the utmost respect for her and what shes accomplished)..lets see what happens now that Ragot is back.

Rémy Métailler Signs Two-Year Deal with Cube
@Daweil: What I meant was signing with riders outside of Europe it will be the motivation for these type of brands to expand there sales to other countries. From a marketing standpoint(like other mentioned)it makes alot of sense. I mean YT sales sky rocketed when Gwin signed and Zink started the distribution. Almost whenever a German/European brand announces a new bike,the first comments are mostly "will it be sold in N.America"...
