Kids Send Rampage-Sized Hucks in ‘Grompage’ - Video
@liztwinbikemom: Right, it's no different thank kids playing hockey, where equipment costs just as much year after year. Or sending kids to expensive baseball/football/basketball camps. I'm stoked for your kids to have such an incredible opportunity so young. Good on ya. Although, I think it is safe to say they're a bit "spoiled", right? Both things can be true. I mean, lots of parents cut the same corners, and kids do the same chores, and they couldn't afford a bike that expensive for their kids (let alone 2). But hey, that's the reality of life- it's not something to be ashamed of or feel defensive about. Cheers.

Ridden and Rated: 5 Four-Piston Brakes
I'd try out those TRPs for 200 each. Not a bad price.

Production Privée Release New Shan nº5
@adrennan: agreed. I was a little surprised to see a stem, bar and grips on there. But the notion as a whole: Frame + Fork + Wheels, is awesome. That'd make the transition from 26" to 27.5"/29" a bit easier.

Lopes Punching Kabush After the Race? Here’s What That’s All About
Lopes is generally about as douchey as they come... but when you ask someone explicitly, several times, not to do something to you, and they do it anyway? That's lame as hell. That will never "loosen someone up". This won't really change my opinion of Lopes, but it did help me form one of Kabush: Douche.

Have Your Say on the Ever-Changing Bike Standards
When creating a new standard, ask yourself - What is the TRUE value added with this product? Is the value so great that it's worth the replacement cost, as someone who likely has a fixed budget to spend on a bicycle? Some products knock this out of the park - the wide/narrow chainring, for example. The performance advantage is clearly worth the $40 a new chain ring costs. Going from 20mm x 110 front axles to 15mm x 110 boost? Not at all worth the 200+ dollar investment in a new hub (at best), or a new fork (at worst). I feel like companies don't ask themselves this question. It's instead- is there value added? If the question is (even remotely, on paper) yes, they run with it. There's little cost consideration on behalf of the actual consumers.

Opinion: Save the DH Bike?
It'll be just like Rent the Runway, for DH bikes, instead of dresses. It make absolute sense, frankly. If you know what I'm talking about, congrats on having a steady woman in the picture! :D
