Review: The New 2024 Scott Ransom 900 RC Has All The Integration
@mattg95: Built from frame up, lots of maintenance and parts changing, I had it down to its component pieces for inspection and torque check the second it came out of the box. Is it harder than a s/s rigid steel pub bike? Of course. Is it an issue? Nope.

Review: The New 2024 Scott Ransom 900 RC Has All The Integration
@seb-stott: The Acros headset top section and the little sealing plugs came with my bike. You can go full integrated... semi integrated with the syncros stems that have the funny cap at the back, or 'regular' stem of your liking. As per many commenters here - I've always been sceptical. But I bought the first bike a year ago after persuasion from my LBS that it was not something to worry about. Heck, it even had a press fit BB. Been so pleased with it, and the fantastic build quality of the Scott Carbon frames (paint job, finishing, the best 'box of spare little bits' I've ever had from any manufacturer) I have since bought a second (the Bold), using the same level of integration, and its the same story again. Everyones welcome to opinion, thats how the world works, but from an owner, I can categorically say that many of the 'issues' are simply not issues at all. The low COG, the tracloc, the climbing/descending balance, the ability to slam a massive long seatpost and get mega drop even if your a shortarse, all of which are shared with this new Ransom, are really good. Wont be for everyone though. Nice review !

Its really not hard. All the same tech on my current bike. Yes its harder than building a BSO hardtail from the supermarket. But its absolutely not horrible. The quality and level of design is amazing.

Looks great. Further proof that Bold Cycles is, in fact, Scotts 'experimental' brand. Most of the development work here comes from the Linkin and the Unplugged. As a Bold owner (very happy one) I can't wait to see all the comments about things which actually turn out to be complete non-issues (cable routing, servicing, maintenance, tracloc is pointless etc etc...) This looks excellent.

You must have given your colleagues on the Scott side great feedback from your prototype Unplugged :D (Love my Linkin!)

Norco Files Patent for New Downhill Bike
"a racetrack-shaped bottom bracket" This made me LOL more than it should. Do you fit the bottom bracket by only screwing it in to the left?

Video: World Cup Overall Winner Loic Bruni's 2023 Season Recap
Yes, the RB/Warner thing was a shame. But you know what I really think is a shame? The number of people who claim to be DH's biggest lifelong fan, still banging on about something that is well in the past now, that we cannot change, and unwilling to put their hands in their pocket to watch the sport they claim to love so much.

Pinkbike Poll: How Many Days Did You Ride in 2023?
Its pretty obvious from the data above that we can simplify everyoners answers to the following: - How many times did you ride in 2023?....... Once a Week - How many times do you want to ride in 224?...... More than Once a Week. That is my response summed up neatly, and I am pretty sure thats the response of the majority too. Anybody showing any sort of worry or anxiety about riding too much, is either a lottery winner, a journo, or has no idea how lucky they are.
