Field Test: Yeti SB130
Both the SBs look like awesome bikes, but I bought an aluminum transition instead and have enough money left for a sweet riding trip or 3. The bikes stair step on travel but have super close geometry so I would love to see a smuggler vs sb130 or sentinel vs sb150 comparison.

Review: Specialized Stumpjumper EVO 29
What's your super steep test trail? My sentinel wants to know, I am boring it with my riding recently.

First Look: Trust Performance's $2,700 Carbon Fiber Linkage Fork
Not sure I want a fork that preserves trail under compression. That means the axle is moving back much faster than on a telescopic fork and shortening your front center even more. Trail determines steering feel and centering but front center and wheel keeps your weight where you want it. I was hoping it had a slight rearward path off sag for small bump compliance then would move forward for wheelbase preservation even if it reduces trail. I would be curious to ride one but this costs more than I just spent on whole bike in buysell and I have a kid to feed.

The Mechanic's Special - Interbike 2018
I want the counterweight stand for my cargo bike. The family bike shop has some and they are nice. Kind of overkill for anything else though and I wonder what happens if you put a sub 18lb road bike in it.

Industry Weighs in on the Latest Round of US Tariffs on Chinese Mountain Bike Imports
I am pro free trade and think trumps tactics are horrible. That said chinese goods are frequently cheap because of lax worker and environmental protections. When I can get USA made good that are competitive performance and price wise and support people who give a damn about our sport why wouldn't I? Currently I have 3 sets on MUSA (ON3P and PM Gear) skis and hope my next bike will be from Guerilla Gravity with MRP suspension. What other parts can I get made in usa? Bikes and skis are luxury toys and I want to support people who care.

Video: Kona Launches New Carbon Process 29er
Guide brakes have no place on a long travel bike, give us codes. Also full GX and a lyric RC for 4k even on the DL would be much more compelling.

First Ride: 2019 Giant Trance 29
Not the bike for me, but the alloy model with fox shox and gx for $3k would be a nice upgrade to my wifes trance x in a couple years. These are solid bikes for trail riding.
