Carbon Conundrum - Pole Bicycles Ditch Their Plastic Project
@RollinFoSho: i wonder at what point we will see widespread carbon recycling. There are a couple places in the US, probably exclusively for aerospace waste. I highly doubt we could walk up and drop off our broken frame. I think all bike brands that sell carbon products should take broken products back no questions asked...which means they need to set up relationships with the few recyclers available.

Everything You Need to Know About Kona's New Process Bikes
Too bad there is no piggy back shock option on he Process 29. Surprising considering it's intentions. maybe it's a weight thing, price point. Transition went all in with the shock...too bad!

Transition Sentinel - Review
LOL at the guys moaning about 32lbs as pictured. Isn't Enduro these days at least 30lbs. The sentinel build is high end indeed, but it's easy to drop a pound. Look at all the premium CARBON enduro bikes over 30lbs these days....

Transition's 2018 Lineup - First Look
@TransitionBikeCompany: I'm on the Sentinel like white on rice. Question on frame only options, will frame kits be available with forks, Elite and factory (sweet sweet orange;)?

Transition's 2018 Lineup - First Look
@tcmtnbikr: I am the same height and inseam, and 150mm is the max I can go. Any longer I can't even turn the pedals when I'm sitting. You have some interesting morphology ! 8-)

Transition's 2018 Lineup - First Look
Dave, you'll get it once more of these 'progressive geo' bikes come out. Slack HTA isn't the limiting factor climbing, it's stupid short seat stays paired with stupid slack actual STA. Mojo, Pole, now Transition to an extent are moving the industry forward. The big boys are moving the tubes a few mm per year....In the case of the SC Hightower, if one were to set it up the way most people do here (160mm fork), the STA is brutal, it's no better than the first generation.

DVO Topaz T3 Air Shock - Review
This shock is absolutely amazing on the short travel Smugger. Feels like a progressive coil. Zero break away force (ridiculously light initial feel), and strong support. I've ridden Float X, Monarch, Monarch plus, CCDB. This one, on a short travel bike, is f*cking money And it is HARLY fiddly. The air can is similar to the monarch, so I just dropped in 2 bands (that you can do on the trail), pumped it up to less than body weight (bonus), went with minimum bladder pressure (170psi), and I was off. The 'climb' position isn't that firm, but at least on good pedalling bikes, it's perfect for climbing and traversing. And in Canada, for whatever reason, it's really well priced compared to Fox.
