Big Wheel Blitzkrieg at Fort Bill – Danny Hart's Mondraker Summum 29er
If you think the guys as Niner are giggling...what do you think the guys at Lenz Sport are doing...They have had a 29er DH bike for about 5 years (or more) now. Not sure how good it is but...I think they pioneered it.

Brilliant or Bullshit? – Pinkbike Poll
Press fit is garbage. Honestly, I think the only purpose for press fit was so bike frame manufacturers could maximize profit by not having to cut threads in the frames. I had 1 BB92 frame...creaked after 1 month of riding. Installed a new BB...started creaking again after a month. The only thing that got it to stop was a +$100 Wheels Manufacturing BB with threads in the middle of the shell. So now, not only did I NOT see the cost savings from the mfgr not cutting threads in the frame (frame still cost me 2200 new)...but I had to pay over 100 bucks for a BB to stop the frame from creaking. Thanks industry...

Greg Minnaar's Santa Cruz V10 29er - Bike Check
I think there is some validity to that. I am almost 6' and I ride a 29er trail bike. I think it is going to be a challenge for manufacturers to make 29er DH bikes for the crowd that is below 5'7" 5'8" without having it feel unwieldy or awkward. We'll see how this plays out...Based on how I have been riding with friends and race times...my 29er trail bike is definitely faster than my 27.5 bike was. But I think the benefit of 29" wheels may play more to the riders that are hovering around 6' and up. Will taller riders be the only ones to be able to unlock this mechanical advantage? If so...how long before UCI starts to put limitations on DH bike tech so that rider talent is the only thing that differentiates the competitors.

Pinkbike Poll: Which Major Component is the Least Evolved Part of a Mountain Bike?
I almost knew it would be transmission...even though it has evolved quite a bit in the last 15 yrs. Still to this day though...I can't buy a headset that doesn't creak after a month of riding! Granted I have never been flush enough to run a King headset but still...I want an affordable headset that is creak free for at least a season. I hate having to service these things every month or so. Also...the press fit? There has to be something better.
