The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 83 - Does Carbon Fiber Belong On Your Mountain Bike?
Carbon is for dentists and plebs. Not fit for use in a real mtb but cheap to produce. Fuck carbon. They need to start making carbon ebikes - its the same moron market.

Review: 2022 Devinci Spartan HP - The Sturdy Trail Smasher
Oligarchy, monopolies and plutocracy are the intended outcomes of capitalism, the 1% isnt a mistake, they are the point of the system, to reinforce the power of the 1%. You want sram and shimano to give up oligarchy? You'll have to pry it from their cold dead hands, the rich never give up wealth willingly.

Review: 2022 Devinci Spartan HP - The Sturdy Trail Smasher
FUCK CARBON. Its only fit for pro's who get a new frame thrown at them before the shitty carbon frame they are riding starts to crack. Carbon is for dentists, if you ride gravity, you want AL. Know why everything is carbon now? Its more profitable to the brands even though the bike are shit. Same reason every bike has a session linkage. Fuck carbon and fuck session linkages and fuck PB pushing both, along with ebikes.

@luckynugget: AY! I mean I live in BC so obvs above average but from the content I see online FR is still going hard in every corner of the world! I dont believe theres no market, there just trying to push us onto EN/DH rigs so they dont have to make FR bikes...in my opinion...

17 Freeride Bikes from Proving Grounds 2021
@zede: I hear you but it sucks being the guy trying to find a FR rig... ALSO pre-2010s FR and DH were super small markets, v few bike parks so pretty much just racers and feature building FR guys so a very specific market, YET at the time I could name you 15 bikes I would give a limb for, these days I'd be lucky to name 5! TBH I dont buy any economic necessity argument for needing to sell lots of consumer bikes - the brands are funnelling their cash into mainstream down specd crap to chase bucks, theyre not interested in chasing core rider dollars anymore when the suburbs are awash with dentists and yuppis who buy based off how light the bike is and how much carbon is on it....

THIS! Industry is trying to push FR onto either enduro or DH race rigs - Fuck Yeah Commencal, the Furious will be my next bike. Currently on a Capra shred which is an amazing FR bike but the new MX sucks - less travel, mixed wheel only, carbon only, less progressive, crap spec etc....I feel like a lot of brands are down spec'ing to cater to mainstream/casual riders...thank god for the Furious but there needs to be more FR specific bikes.

Field Test: 2022 We Are One Arrival - Efficient & Effective
I was hoping someone would say it....hurtling towards 2030 where every bike has the same boring linkage and homogeneous characteristics. The important thing tho is that theyre cheap and profitable to produce. When this is all thats out there im dropping FR/DH and only riding slope on a hardtail. FTS.
