Field Test: 2021 Commencal Meta Power - The Aluminum Sledge Hammer
I've got one of these. It's great, but theres another flaw with ebikes not really being mentioned. The nearly 1000 motor is treated as disposable. There are no spare parts available. Third party suppliers make kits for *some* of the bearings but that's it. It's not like you can ride the bike without it either! A common fault is a torque sensor error, a tiny part that results in a bill for a new motor outside warranty. .. and is a 2 year motor warranty acceptable? (Especially on bikes as expensive as the Yeti??) But even with a big warranty, you still need spare parts. All it takes is a crash or pedal strike and it's new motor time!

Pinkbike Poll: How Long Do Bike Parts Last?
Oil started leaking out the top of the damper on my lyriks. The seal is not included in any seal kit sold by Rockshox. In the end I followed a video someone had made on youtube and found the seal somewhere else with a bit of hassle. Why not just make it available?! No-one wants to ditch a fork/damper for a seal costing pennies, and not everyone has a warranty (e.g. on 2nd hand bits)

Why Do Luxury Brands Keep Producing Crappy Mountain Bikes?
BMW actually did quite a novel one, BMW Q6.S?? It had the sort of linkage/telescopic forks from their motorbikes, telelever I think? http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=41&t=402804

NS Bikes Eccentric Alu EVO 27.5 frame Black

$180 GBP
This is a great little frame, but unfortunately, I've bought the wrong size :( It's had a handful of rides (two young children and too many bikes mean it's not been used as much as it should), now up for sale. Bought in July 2019, so still 6 months or so left on the warranty (not that I forsee many problems!) Comes with: - Brand X headset also purchased July 2019 and in great condition - seatclamp - other bits that came with frame (rear axle, cable holders etc) ** Does not include the dropper post, I need that for the new frame! ** For 142x12 rear hub I used a 36t chainring and it cleared the frame fine. 30.9 seatpost 130mm - 150mm forks. 65 degree head angle, 73 degree seattube. For other specs see below Regarding sizing, NS bikes say... We recommend the S size for riders up to 172cm, M size for 170 – 182cm and the L size for riders over 180cm. However, I am 5'11/180cm and found it a little small for more cross country type riding. Can be collected form Southwick or Burgess Hill (work hours) by arrangement Price doesn't include postage From website: NS Bike’s Eccentric Alu EVO 27.5 Frame is perfect for those who like to go full gas on the trails.

$250 GBP
Fox 34 Factory forks, 130mm travel. Recently had a lowers service, and work great. Very supple. All dials working fine. One paint chip on kashima coat on fork stanchion, though it is flat and does not affect function. Some chips to paint, including on the arch which i've touched up with gloss black paint.

140mm Fox 34 performance w EVOL spring upgrade

$250 GBP
Fox 34 performance w EVOL spring upgrade Originally 120mm travel, but upgraded to 140mm with 2017 EVOL air shaft (larger negative air volume) Great condition, only a couple of tiny chips in the paint. Stanchions unmarked. All levers and adjusters work. Had a lowers service not too long ago with all the correct Fox oils used. The rebound dial no longer "clicks" because it seized last year as the ball bearing used to make the clicks corroded, so i removed it during a service and greased the rebound adjuster rod instead. Should have no further problems with the knob seizing!
