BMC Launches New Fourstroke 01 XC Bike
Nice looking bike. So the seatpost uses elliptical seals and bushings, both presumably proprietary. If a component company did that I’d be skeptical. When a bike company designs a proprietary, highly stressed component with wearing parts, I’m full-on doubtful. Good luck in the future, BMC bleeding-edge dropper buyers.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Listen to Music While Riding?
There’s a dude I see on a fat bike literally every time I ride in a certain area. He’s always got a speaker on, usually Grateful Dead, but not very loud. I find it impossible to hate him for it ‘cause he rides everything on a rigid steel fat bike and he’s chill af, always smiling, he follows trail etiquette, even always says “have a great ride.” This is 100% unlike every other trail-douche I see with a speaker. Why do you need to turn up your crap music in the woods? Why would you? Nature is pretty damn silent, and you’re aurally shitting on everything else in the vicinity. Wear headphones or turn it down, you self-centered fucks. Also, get off my damn lawn.

Review: NS Snabb 150 Plus 1
So: the tires are standard casing Schwalbes that tear if you use sharp words, the fork and shock aren’t tuned well for the application and aren’t easily adjustable to good performance, the brakes are a budget choice with poor power, but the review conclusion is a Pro for “No-fuss, fit-and-forget components?” Ummm?

Cannondale Introduces the New Jekyll 29
Seriously, first time seeing flat mount idiocy on an enduro bike. Post mount has no problems, so it was definitely time for a lighter and stupider standard with poor backwards compatibility.

RockShox's Electronic Wireless Dropper Post - Mont-Sainte-Anne World Cup
“Cost a bit more” ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha aha aha *cough* You realize this is a SRAM product right, and it’ll be marketed as Revofrickinlutionary? 2018 Reverb MSRP +$199 is my guess. I’m just waiting for long-term reviews of the OneUp post. If it’s reliable they own the dropper market.

Staff Rides: Photographer Matt Wragg's Scott Spark
Please, more of these. I find when riders have to buy their own, and maintain their own, the thinking on parts and frames gets way more interesting and a lot less BS gets said. I now ride a durable frame and mid-grade parts that I would have laughed at in my younger, supposedly faster days. And climbing ability is only slightly less important than downhill ability if you want sufficient energy for the downhills on the big days. IMO the 115-140mm all-around mountain bikes PB has shown lately are perfect for a lot of people.

Pinkbike Poll: What Injuries Have You Received While Mountain Biking?
Guy I worked with years ago crashed in such a way that a pine stick on the forest floor speared all the way through his quad. That made me think a bit about the seeming impossibility of that injury, and yet it happened anyway. Random stuff can happen. I’ve had several roadies tell me they are scared of injuries from Mtn biking, which blows my mind as they put all of their miles in next to autos. Mtn bikers get hurt, but almost never killed by cars- that is my biggest cycling fear.

Pinkbike Poll: What Injuries Have You Received While Mountain Biking?
Toe, foot, and knee impact injuries are missing from the list and have to be pretty common. I’ve broken a toe and cracked a patella.

Ask Pinkbike: Bikes for Smaller Riders, & Saddle Suggestions
Second that- I got a SQLab “611 Active” saddle this spring and it is the shizz. Worth the high price.
