This is what I imagine my post apocalyptic world will be like. Super rad shot :)

Norco Sight C 9.2 – Review
Am I the only one who still can't get on board with the prices of bikes these days? The base level is 3.9k? WTF? You've got 3 choices here... Carbon 140/130 Pike, Deluxe, XT, RF cockpit, XT/RF wheels - Rocky Mountain: 5k Carbon 140/140. Pike, Monarch, X1, RF cockpit/crank, e*thirteen wheels - YT: 4k Carbon 140/140, Fox Elite, Fox Float, Eagle, RF cockpit/crank, e*thirteen wheels - YT: 4.8k Even TY's entry level bike is one thousand freaking dollars less. It's a no brainer... YT, and the companies whose prices are comparable to theirs (Rose and Canyon, for example), are the only sane ones out there, I swear.

Intense DVO Recluse Limited Edition
None of these greens really match up. Frame, fork and wheels are all different colors... they certainly should have gone with something else for the frame, no?

Does Boost Spacing Really Make a Stronger Wheel?
I literally scrolled down through this article expecting to see numbers, tests or calculations of any sort to answer this question. All I saw were words, so I know, beyond a doubt, that nothing actually gets answered here- which frankly, is disappointing.

Pole Evolink 140 - Review
I just thought to myself 4500 isn't bad for a starting point. God damn it, look what they've done to me.

Another New Standard? Here Comes Boost 20x110
Oh fuck off already. I mean seriously... come on. I appreciate that he was relatively candid on the topic, but- while that may bring a smirk to my face, it doesn't change the facts. The bike industry, with all these minuscule changes at a constant rate, are jerking the customers around. Shit, I don't even know what I should buy anymore- I legitimately have no clue. This little gem stuck out to me: "So you can run your old wheelset—you just have to space your rotor five millimeters out and we’ll be providing rotor spacers with the fork that let you do that." Who here is old enough to remember IS brake mounts? We're bringing those little shims back, with how easy they are to use, and whatnot. Now that's advancement right there!
