Pole Bicycles Has Filed for Bankruptcy
@ksilvey10: sorry, what I was meaning is that most bike brands do design and marketing but don’t actually make the frames. Merida and Giant being two large exceptions,

@ksilvey10: surely that’s about 175 full-sus brands? How many actual manufacturers are there?

Video: The Riders Overlooked By Modern Geometry
An interesting point to note is that lots of riders will say “I’m average height, I’m ~5’10” / 178cm”. That’s only average height amongst men of Northern European genetic heritage. The average height amongst most other genetic groups of men is shorter and even more so for women. Obviously the MTB world is massively dominated by male European and North American riders but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of riders for whom average height is a lot less. (This size issue is seen across many many industries, including things like crash test dummies for car safety testing…)

Review: Raaw Madonna V3 - Yes, It's Still Great
Both my bikes have almost as much stack height and higher rise bars, and they work well on flatter trails - we have a lot of less steep but loose rooty natural trails locally where keeping the front wheel gripping is critical. I too used to think that low bars were essential for weighting the front wheel but now I don’t - and the high bars and longer slacker geometry works a million times better on the steep gnar.

Review: Raaw Madonna V3 - Yes, It's Still Great
Watchmen is correct! If one bike has 620mm stack and the other 660mm stack, and the reach is identical, then you’ll need to add 45mm of spacers to get the grips to the same height (assuming matching handlebars/stems). And adding 45mm of spacers will push the grips backwards by 20mm. (It’s sine and cosine functions of the head angle). So conveniently, 10mm more stack is effectively the same as 5mm more reach, you just need to adjust the grip position with spacers and/or bar rise.

Review: 6 Months Aboard the Specialized Levo SL eMTB
Must just be for the climbs, then swap for the descents…

KMC Announces Their First Cassette
I see this was downvoted - I tried a Microshift cassette on my ebike and the chain was skipping teeth under load after only 200 miles! At least with SLX 11 speed I’d get 600 miles of good shifting and another 600 miles of progressively worse shifting until it was dead, with no tooth skipping. Meanwhile LinkGlide is at 1400 miles and counting.

I didn’t get around to changing the chain on my LinkGlide and looking at the teeth wear it seems foolish to try. However, it’s still working well at almost triple the mileage where an SLX had started playing up (and seven times the mileage where a Microshift cassette was skipping teeth!)
