New Enduro and Gore-Tex Clothing From 7mesh - Across the Pond Beaver
Came here for comments from poor people who don’t understand quality, fit, value, and materials complaining about 7Mesh pricing. Was not disappointed.

The Complete 2021 Rocky Mountain Altitude Lineup Compared - Across the Pond Beaver
How on earth does a $10k USD bike weigh over 32lb????? And how on earth is anyone ok with that??? I get it, weight isn’t by any means a useful metric on its own but come on...

First Ride: Shimano's New Steps EP8 eMTB System
Don’t really care much about e-mountain bikes but it’s nice to see Shimano keeping the same motor mounts for frames. That alone deserves a “well done.” So, well done Shimano.

Pinkbike Poll: How Much Do Race Results Affect Your Bike Purchases?
So, as someone who has worked in action sports sales & marketing, this is a bit funny. It’s also a tough question. Whoever said “race results don’t affect purchases but seeing the same bikes on the podium over multiple disciplines does have an effect on consumers” is probably. Too nuanced an answer for a 15 second poll and definitely far too nuanced for the package Pinkbike uses these polls to make that then gets sent to potential/current/former advertisers. Racing is only one factor in driving consumer demand. Distribution, advertising (which IS NOT racing), video content and media strategy, etc, are all non-product related factors that go into it. These things, plus a ton of others, are what factor into “brand”. The actual physical product (the bike, in this case), plus price and value, are still by far and away critical to consumers. Coming at it from my point of view, it seems bike companies often forget this part of it nearly completely, other than making sure the prices are outrageous. As for the “brand” aspect, it’s easier to name companies that do it well (there’s like 3) than those who don’t.

Field Test: 9 XC Bikes & the Grim Donut VS the Huck to Flat
This is quite obviously the most important test of any bike. Impressed with the Lefty and SID, genuinely. Also impressed that none of these XC bikes seem to have broken.

@Svinyard: you mean like the shift under load tech Shimano crams into every single one of their 12 speed drivetrains, including the dirt cheap Deore stuff?

Kona Announces New Process X & Aluminum 153
@conoat: when compared to $CAD pricing for Giant and other brands, not to mention spec, Kona really comes out looking awful here.

Kona Announces New Process X & Aluminum 153
$CAD pricing, at least in regards to spec and value for cash spent is, uh, I’m looking for a word that surpasses “atrocious” and can’t find one. It’s like Kona isn’t even remotely interested in selling bikes in Canada...
