Reeb Cycles Announces Limited Release “Halo Build” SST
They literally stole my color. Mine was a custom hardtail a few years back. Adam was trying to get eggplant, to match my Kona Process 111, and this was one of the samples. The others weren't exactly eggplant either and I liked this one. Only difference is that mine has the matt finish.

Probably Pilgrim, and some others that don't depend directly on competitions.

Bike Check: Brage Vestavik's GT Force 'Jib' Bike
That's basically my suspension setup with the pressure maxed out. People ask me why I don't just go rigid front and rear.

Rimpact Launches New EDH & Gravel/XC Tire Inserts
Love their inserts. But the included stems are too short for a lot of rims, and I'm not thrilled about having to cut my own 26" versions. Seems like trivial zero cost issues to address.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Care If Your Frame Comes From a Catalogue?
Have one, at 980 grams. They are surprisingly strong. Being well over 200 lbs, I considered it an experiment that would probably end badly. But after a few 4 ft drops to flat, a few stair sets of doom, the only thing that failed was ill advised carbon crankset and the crappy, but super light, name brand (Roval) wheels. There were a few issues; the press BB is somewhat out of spec and there is nothing inside the thin frame walls to dampen the noise.

Opinion: The Opposite of Learning to Fly
If 40 is old, I may as well just put my head in the oven now.

Opinion: Why You Shouldn't Care What the Pros Ride
Something not mentioned in the article is that the bike you think you see the pro ride could be completely different from what you can buy. It might even be a different brand.

Interview: Walt Wehner Designed A 36" Tire & Doesn't Think They'll Catch On
Pretty sure he rode one already about 6-8 months ago, maybe was a 32". But as you might guess, it lasted about 5 minutes before catastrophic wheel failure.

Interview: Walt Wehner Designed A 36" Tire & Doesn't Think They'll Catch On
I ride on wheels bigger than 29". That being the old school 27", which is actually 30.25" measured in 29'r inches. Sadly the tire selection really is crap. They are great for road bikes. For serious off pavement riding on 36" you would need minimum of 39.68 spokes, a 37.2mm rim width and 183.52mm boost hubs. It gets kind of silly. Think it will remain in the realm of 6' 8" basketball player millionaire's custom bikes.

36pollici Announces the First Carbon 36er Mountain Bike
Those wheels would survive maybe 5 minutes. It would need proportionally wider hubs and rims to work well, and weigh in closer to 35 lbs. Send one to Pilgrim for "quality control testing", that would be entertaining.
