1 Question - What's Going on With 27.5+?
I though plus bikes were dead. Went into my local bike store for the 1st time in about a year last time they had several plus bikes this time they had zero I asked about them and was told they just weren't shifting them especially the full bounce ones so they stopped stocking them

Brilliant or Bullshit? – Pinkbike Poll
For best inovation I really wanted to say indexed gears but the option wasn't there. If you weren't riding back in the day of non indexed thumb shift then you have no idea just how amazing indexed gears are

Big Wheel Blitzkrieg at Fort Bill – Commencal Supreme DH V4 29er
The bigger wheels no longer make the bikes look mega long and low the one at the top of the page looks very short and high like a mid 90's DH bike

Pinkbike Poll – Electronic Components on Your Mountain Bike?
Can honestly say in over 25 years of cycling MTB and road bikes I've only ever had to change 2 gear cables because they have stretched, frayed or rusted in a way that gear changers were compromised and then two cables cost the combined price of £5. A hell of a lot cheaper then d2i and let's be honest anybody whose ever tinkered with electronics knows the price of building the d2i systems circuits and motors will be very cheap about £5 max especially when your buying in bulk. The whole system probably costs shimano £30 max to build package and ship so until they drop the price to under £150 I ain't interested one bit

Pinkbike Poll: If Racing Does Improve the Breed, Will You Trade up to 29-inch Wheels?
The think is we will be riding what the manufacturers say we have to unless there going to start selling modular frames where you buy the front triangle and rear triangles separately giving a choice of 26 27.6 or 29 rears For example I need to buy a complete new bike as I can not for the life of me find a new fork that's 1 1/8th. Everything is tapered now
