KindShock Debuts Lightest Full-Travel Dropper Post and New Budget Model – Taipei Cycle Show
I would strongly discourage Canadians from buying KS until they are able to provide the distributor/service centre with spare parts. Mine and others have been out for warranty/repair since last summer. Sad!

Norco Range 9.2 - First Ride
@alexsin: the 2017 are still shipping, so I can't see that happening yet. But it's in the pipe I think...Maybe an early release? The current one will take a wide range of shocks so the lack of Metric on the current one can be negated by using a coil:-).

Trek Slash 9.9 29 RSL - Review
@jaame: Generally speaking spent on a TREK is going back into higher paying local jobs, even if the Slash itself isn't done in the USA. Sure, the locals are doing layups on the ultra premium models, but how many guys are doing anything other than assembling at Santa Cruz? A Nomad frame is quite north of $4K CAD here... I don't own a trek BTW, just some rhetorical speak;)

Kona Process 111

$1200 CAD
'Long, Low, Slack, Stiff, Sick" Whatever, the Process 111 is a sick ride! Frame only for sale (includes headset, and rear axle). Includes Debonair shock upgrade (also includes low volume can). I had this bike set up with a 140mm Pike, and this is the setup I recommend to you! Climbs very well (not floppy), but brings the HA just a hair under 67 (actual). It's served me well. Bought in the Spring, rode it through August, after which I tore my it's had limited riding time this fall, and zero riding time this winter. Very capable bike....I did the TransBC (as a volunteer marshall) and it was awesome! Bearings were re-packed in the fall, and the shock had a full overhaul/service late summer at Fluid Function in Squamish. It has minor paint rubs (largest one being from tire rub from broken wheel), but for the most part all high wear areas were covered by 3m tape. 460mm reach, so it's right in the middle these days for long bikes. Good fork folks that are 5'10-6'2 ish. Come on my fellow Kona Lovers, hit me up!

2017 Norco Sight Carbon - First Look
$3299 CAD for the Sight 9 frame kit. It's right there on their website. Yes, more than a Devinci, but not a direct USD/CAD conversion.

SRAM Announces New Roam 50 Carbon Wheels
@Lambkoes: I compressed a Rail 50 last year. Same thing. I waited 2 months to find out that no rim was available. They sold me a new Rail 40 at a discounted rate. The Rail lasted 1 week at TransBC before the freehub bearings seized in those garbage 4pawl hubs. I subsequently re-rimmed the better Rail 50 hubs. But, not soon after, I deformed the rim again in a compression. Threw them in the trash. The rear wheel would benefit from 4 more spokes, at least. The front was stiff enough.

Cam McCaul's Squamish VW Adventure - Documentary
@occam15: our settlement situation is similar to yours (but yet to be approved). And it's Canada so the awards are a bit less by the looks of it. It's been a fine car. At times over 1,000km per tank (golf 6spd). Just sucks now that even up here, TDI will be gone. Not to long ago tdi's made up 25% of Canada's VW sales!
