Underappreciated comment, it’s damn close.

Pinkbike Awards: Best Value Product Nominees
OneUp should own the dropper market soon. I’ve got three trouble-free months on mine so far, and it managed to get 150mm of drop into a sized-up frame since it’s short overall. I can’t say it’s more reliable yet than my two Crank Bros Hightowers, which (really) have been flawless for two years. The OneUp is cheaper and fits more drop in the same space though.

Ask Pinkbike: Ripmo or Smuggler, Powerful Brakes & Tough Tires
It’s 30lbs for an average longer travel MTB, plus 55 lbs? E-MTBs weigh 85 pounds? Damn. That should keep their market share small. /s

Trending: Mountain Bike Tech to Look for in 2019
I, for one, welcome the $400 shift components, $2000 “smart” forks, and the $750 wireless Reverb. I’m sure all that extra money will be Worth It in the form of perfect function, easy maintenance, small parts availability, extreme reliability, and high resale value. That’s usually how it works in this industry.

Öhlins Cleared to Fix Recalled RXF 36 & 34 Air forks
Yes, I’ve had two Crank Bros Highlines in use now over 18 months and they’ve been 100%. A Specialized Command post died on me before that. I know CB used to suck but you can’t just assume it now. 3 year warranty too @NebulousNate:

Review: Yeti's New SB100
Spot on. Given equal head angles, wheel diameters, and fork lengths: More fork offset equals sharper/quicker steering by decreasing trail, even as it increases wheelbase. Less fork offset slows steering and increases wheel flop by increasing trail, even as it decreases wheelbase. My impression with the current move to shorter offset is that it might result in bumps affecting the front wheel less. It’s easy to think we’ve found the range of workable trail numbers in 43-51mm, and now the market is working out the optimum number. Also easy to think it makes little difference either way and it’s just marketing detail.

Cane Creek Announces New Hellbender 70 Headset
40s are great for the price- if you smoke the lower bearing after a season or two you can replace it for about $10, or go with the 110 stainless steel lower bearing for $45ish. Either way, great return on a $50 headset. Last year I bought a Works Components angleset though- they should be the standard in my opinion. The tolerances are tight, bearings are nice, good sealing, obviously very high quality machining, and it’s a small homegrown business. All those pluses at a lower price than King or 110.

Opinion: Why Have Bike Makers Ignored this Grassroots Fix?
Have you done this? I’ve thought about it

Opinion: Why Have Bike Makers Ignored this Grassroots Fix?
Pinkbike commenters and bike buyers will savage a company that ups the price of their bikes enough to justify frame wrap. It takes a lot of time and labor to apply frame wrap so it sticks well and doesn’t look like shite. My Evil took about 6 hours of cutting and cleaning, spraying and soaking, and applying tape. Sure, pre cut kits take the cutting time out but let’s estimate it takes two hours of labor to properly wrap a carbon frame. Will the already cratering pedal bike (non e-bike, pbike?) market support higher prices for factory-quality frame wrap? Doubtful. Could be a selling point for certain brands but wraps don’t come for free.

Review: Polygon Siskiu T8
I was wondering the same thing, and after checking out Marin’s site they don’t use this frame. They have 120mm and 150mm 29ers.
