Bike Check: Greg Minnaar's Norco Prototype DH Bike at Fort William World Cup
'This weekend it will stay that way, though during the off-season a 29" rear end was made for Greg, but he wasn't able to make it go faster than the mixed-wheel setup. We are told it may make an appearance later in the season when the track demands it but for now, there is no evidence to support going to full 29".' Hard to believe that any other track calls for a 29" rear wheel more than Fort William. Not that steep but very rough with some big pedalling sections cries out for fast rolling characteristics over manoeuvrability. I'm not saying that 27.5" is the wrong choice for Fort William, just that if it is the right choice its hard to see another track requiring a 29" rear wheel. *Josh Bryceland did win here on 26" hoops when everyone else was on bigger wheels so maybe the above analysis is b*ll*cks

Pole Bicycles Has Filed for Bankruptcy
@eae903: although I do think that Trek are ruining their aesthetics by going with high pivots on their longer travel bikes. High pivots can look good, Forbidden for example, but IMO treks high pivot design does not

Police Called to Scott Sports Headquarters as CEO Dispute Continues
3 police cars' worth of police to mediate!? Either Switzerland has far too many police or there is more to this story. TBH, the whole story is maybe the bizarrest thing that I have read on PinkBike

E-Bike Battery Fires - Should You Be Worried?
Looks like a Sur-Ron, there are road legal and illegal versions, the not road legal version is popular in the UK with lowlifes and drug dealers who can't handle them and get kill themselves when the police give chase. Their fellow low lifes then come out to protest about police brutality. They are then then erroneously reported by the media as having been children riding e-bikes as though they are on the 25km/hour limited things that are legal on UK roads

Ronan Dunne is Leaving Continental Nukeproof Factory Racing
Not really looking to defend the phrase 'part ways' but here Ronan's statement heavily implies that this is his rather than Nukeproof's decision. In this scenario 'leaves' is accurate but 'part ways' is more neutral and more appropriate whose decision it was for the contract to end. I suppose when it is clear that it is the brands decision the headline should be [bike brand] drops [rider], but it probably feels disrespectful to the rider writing a headline like that

Video: The Field Test Speed Trap - No Braking Allowed
at 38 mph drag will be the dominant force slowing the rider down and I would suggest that the differences found are mainly a factor of changing wind conditions, changed rider stance affecting their drag, and inaccuracies in the hand held radar gun

Field Test Review: 2023 Nukeproof Giga 297 - Is Parkduro a Thing?
A while ago any linkage driven single pivot, horst link etc bike would come in for criticism for their brake jack with the then patented 4 bar linkage, VPP and Maestro bikes being lauded for their suppleness under braking. Single pivots (orange and Kona aside) largely disappeared for a while and everyone forgot about this debate. Now they're back and the brake jack is simply described as a handling trait neither good nor bad. Were bike mags making too much of an issue of it in the past? Is it a more fundamental flaw with the Giga? Or has something else changed (shock technology, changes in riding style) that mean that its not as big an issue as it once was?
