Pole Bicycles Announces New CNC-Machined 'Machine' - Press Release
Nothing wrong with bikes made of tubes... since you can actually have internal hose/cables! I guess they ran out of enthusiasm for deep hole drilling?

The Tuesday Tune Ep 19: Rebound Damping - Video
@oscarnielsen: from my basic understanding of the airspring system - the rate effectively increases at bottom out, so the "spring" has more than the linear amount of stored energy. This would mean that for a linear rebound, you would need more rebounding damping at the start (from bottom out) decreasing as the "spring" extends. To achieve this, you would need an active valve on the rebound damper piston, which would be more open at the start of the up stroke and close gradually as it moves up towards the resting point. Its interesting for sure!

The Mountain Bike Technology Wishlist - Opinion
how is boost 148mm rear revolutionary? Back in 2012 I had a DH bike with a 150mm rear hub. I am sure there are many still around... on the logic that 148 is better than 135 because wider is better, surely 150 is better still. It just seemed forgotten

Opinion: Save the DH Bike?
@TheR: precisely. If you live in London, why buy a mountain bike of any kind at all...

Leaving Las Vegas: One Last Stroll Through the Halls of Interbike, 2017
Don't forget that with the 24mm Shimano system a Deore or SLX BB is so cheap its virtually a disposable part! $45 to $75 USD is frankly ridiculous! And when the Hope/whatever bearing muppets pipe up "mine lasts 3 years"... well I can afford to put in a new Deore BB every other weekend and it still cost me less... Your Hope/whatever isn't going to be box fresh for the entire 3 years is it! Shimano do it right. Leave them to it!

Nukeproof Mega 275 Carbon - First Ride
@Travel66: Aluminium is naturally stiff. But it doesn't mean the carbon bike is designed like-for-like is and stiffer in every dimension. With carbon you can vary thickness and layup direction to modify how a "tube" reacts. This is why nearly all road bikes now use full carbon forks. The carbon is laid up to flex and dampen road noise. A metal fork on a road bike simple shakes your knuckles off. Pinarello make a road frame with 10 or 15mm of rear travel - and no pivot :| all in the carbon flex!
