Video: Knolly Announces 2020 Warden
@getsomesy: i didn't say they did. But it doesn't matter. They're one of the few brands that ignored 148 when it was stupid and fashionable, and i admire them fore that.

Video: Knolly Announces 2020 Warden
@getsomesy: Knolly (and pivot) looked at the standards that already existed, and used 2 already existing standards to create something better than what was previously available. It's the best kind of progress, and they absolutely deserve credit for ignoring the wave of Trek's 148 stupidity to push this. This is the sort of iterative innovation that's good for us riders. Chill.

First Look: Taking e*thirteen's New Vario Dropper Post Apart
It's super strange how shitty posts dominate the market. The original dropper is Gravity Dropper. They're absolutely bombproof, and can be overhauled in a hotel room in 30 minutes while drunk. (ask my how i know) They're ugly, unintuitive, and clunky though. It's like the ultimate example of how UI, ergonomics, hype, and salesmanship trumps function.

First Look: Taking e*thirteen's New Vario Dropper Post Apart
i have a trs+ 170 because i saw it as the spiritual successor to the gravity dropper- fully mechanical, easy to rebuild, with some refinement. The brass keys got sloppy quickly, the spring isn't well calibrated to actual use, and the head backs itself off if you don't locktite it down. It's weird that the copy was worse than the 15 year old OG-- It has problems that the original doesnt. I still like it. This post... they're moving to the same office chair hydro cartridge 10 other posts are using, but so far as i see they can't nail the basics like giant, pnw, or brandx have done. So why would anyone buy this over the alternatives?

A Sneak Peek at The New Eminent Onset MT - Pond Beaver 2020
Personally i love seeing a 'dead' linkage design come back to life using modern materials and design expertise. Cool stuff.

A Sneak Peek at The New Eminent Onset MT - Pond Beaver 2020
Lawwill link! I started a thread about this design on MTBR framebuilding forum in 2015. Here was my summary from the responses- Alright, i appreciate everyone's replies, and this is what i draw from it. -Traditionally lawwill link bikes had the front pivots more 'opened up' than the pivots near the dropouts, leading to braking weirdness and a negative association when they were available. This isn't an inherent lawwill problem, but a problem with old models that's difficult to get away from and retain good stiffness. -Since the 'rear triangle' is basically just the dropouts, you can't connect the two sides of the rear triangle. Either you have to seriously over-build the links/stays, or you have a flexy rear end. -Ultimately, execution is more important than which linkage is used, so a well-executed single pivot or short-link bike can offer a better ride experience and is much easier to design and market. https://forums.mtbr.com/frame-building/what-happened-lawwill-link-988034.html

Pinkbike Poll: How is the COVID-19 Pandemic Impacting You?
@RoadStain: " As for non-Trump fans? Well, we do not hire them (pretty much anywhere in this city). One fool was brave and put some Sanders signs in his yard....his neighbors now have GIANT Trump signs (I am sure he won't be invited to the block party). ZERO tolerance for liberals, zero, and yes, we get rid of them in the work place (if someone screws up and hires them). Oh, and I am not sure how many Trump supporters near me are not armed day to day, all day, every day. In general, we are not a "scared" class." Team politics are more important than qualifications/competence? Gross. Unamerican. You should be embarrassed that you're a partisan idiot, not bragging about your myopia on a mtb website. Get your dumb shit out of here.
