Trek Session 27.5 - First Look
What's funny is I remember treks marketing when they started with the full floater. As I recall it was supposedly all to make the bike stiffer... no mention of suspension kimatics. Now they move away from full floater and the BB area gets 19% stiffer. I say the real reason for change is cause people aren't going to buy the same bike they already have.

Mr Wolf Banger Tire Insert - First Ride
Despite the criticism it got for being too "I coulda done that" now the Huck Norris seems like a steal. Procore at 200 something and these 200 something... and the version AG1 uses at 200 something. Huck Norris under 100 with shipping. @driftmonster:

Bike is in great shape. Purchased in March and ridden far too little since then. Mostly stock but the rear wheel is set up tubeless and also I added a giant 6" dropper post. She does have a few minor scratches but no dents or cracks- just normal wear like foot rub on the cranks. And the fork stanchions are as good as new. Feel free to contact me for more pics/info. Tom

The Most Important Component on a New Bike? - Pinkbike Poll
I like this poll. The frame just goes without saying though. I feel like (and the industry seems to agree) that its all about the down. So why cant i buy a good frame with high end suspension, higher-ish wheels and mediocre everthing else? For the sweet spot price (maybe 3-4k ish)? I can live with house brand bars that should be replaced every year anyway. Tires ware out. Drivetrain? It works good at first but how many rides does that last for? Even if i dont smash it off a rock it wears out. Coming up with a few hundred bucks for anything... like a dropper post, is a pain but its within reach. 2k+ for better suspension is not.
