Deviate Cycles - Press Release
I think this is surprisingly reasonable. Yes, it's a lot of money, but only a few hundred pounds over a Yeti/SC/Intense/Ibis/etc. When you add in that those other frames come without a drivetrain where you could easily add £500-700 extra then it's quite competitive. The only question I'd have would be warrantee, availability of parts/repairs, how durable the frame is and whether I can test ride it... If I was in the market I'd be tempted to give it a look in...

Brendan Howey: Ten Years with Commencal - Video
I think they did, with Island Winter 2.0! God I watched this so many times when I was getting into mtb - it blew me away the size and style of the jumps... https://vimeo.com/37721905

2017 Fall/Winter Gear Guide - 7 Men's Kits Tested
I prefer bright colours, particularly in winter where a big off can get serious quickly with the elements. If you end up in some undergrowth, or if someone is more than 20m from you, at least there's a chance they'll see you... I get that black/grey looks good but I'll never buy it as a main jacket...

Trek Session 9.9 DH 27.5 - Review
That was the thing that hit me too, not so much in the human aspect, but that they can save $2k per bike via overseas production. That's a lot given that I doubt the components account for much of that reduction. I wonder how many of these frames they sell given recent enduro bike competition - if it is 1000 worldwide then you save $2mil, or the wages of 40 staff (estimating a salary of $50k - I don't know how feasible that guess is)? I'd be interested to know whether the decision is driven by consumer direct brand competition, or low current sales of DH bikes...
