Video: Get Kids Pumped About Mountain Biking With Children's Bike Seats - How To Bike with Ben Cathro
I've gone through all combos with two kids and riding. Mac Ride, Mac Ride + Thule Chariot trailer, Mac Ride + Thule trailer + balance bike strapped to a backpack and it was great. My only regret was not getting on more off road trails with youngest on the Mac Ride seat, but by that time eldest was pedalling his 20" wheeled bike and wanted to get better on tow paths/old railway paths. I love this series though, it's all spot on and nice to have validation that I did something right, especailly the lifting a sack of potatoes up onto the Mac Ride. Youngest is just onto a 20" now and eldest is a way off a 24". All this stuff might sound expensive but other than the Mac Ride we've bought most of the stuff second hand and sold it back on at the same sort price (or even in some cases with the Islabikes a small profit).

Review: 2023 Transition Smuggler - The Little Ripper
Nice to hear, no-one seems to post positives anymore just jump on the hate bandwagon. They've just gone on sale and I was mulling over the AXS X0 build but was disappointed to read about the issues with this frame like the hole. TBH having to fish a cable through the frame is hardly a deal breaker for me, I don't really see why people are so up ina rms about it. TITS on the 16 Carbon Patrol was excellent for routing but ended up filled with grit and making noise. The routing on the 20 Carbon Scout (which I imagine is very much like this frame) isn't a pain whatsoever. My concern is the fork, had nothing but issues with OEM Fox and a clunky shock from the factory? Err definitely sets alarm bells off. I guess you thought it was but is the X0 AXS really worth the extra coin over the GX AXS?

@Ebab: Absolutely! That was a real rollercoaster to watch, each tree and rut that came aong I was holding my breath awaiting the inevitable, then when it came it wasn't so bad.

Intra Drive's Combined Motor & Gearbox Fits Bikes Designed For Shimano EP8 [Updated on expanding into the aftermarket]
@justinfoil: Agreed. It's not natural "technological progress" at all, it's manufacturers securing future revenue streams by making new products more and more complicated to deter DIY/home mechanics and force people into their stealerships for simple fixes because it needs "specialist" equipment. It should be the opposite, actively encouraging people to take on repairs and overhauls themselves, but in doing so and making products modular manfacturers open themselves up to their competition catching up plus cutting off their future revenue by not having that planned obsolescence when a product is updated and parts are mysteriously no longer available. Or, as Shimano are hideously guilty of, not having spares available at all and you're forced to buy a complete assembly anyway. This product seems like a good starting leap, making it plug into an existing motor envelope. Plus if it is truly more environmentally sound for the product lifecyle then all power to them. Unfortunately corporate greed is completely at odds with with environment but this shows there is still, maybe, some hope left...

Video: 8 Enduro Field Test Bikes Hucked to Flat
There's a lot going on with these suspension designs and it's fascinating to watch how they go through the travel. You can see the stiction point at various parts of the stroke and watch how the frame compresses, then the fork does a bit too, judders a little then the frame continues etc. One thig that stood out for me though was the Commencal. Almost all the bikes hit the bottom, and hit it hard but just sorta stopped. The Meta smashed into the end stop and the seat post vibrates back and forth like a tuning fork!

First Look: Transition TransAM Steel Hardtail
People who know they aren't missing out. Take a hardtail down a trail you know well and can ride quickly on a susser. Provided it's a half decent HT you'll have an absolute blast on it, coming into sections trying to carry the same speed as you did on the susser is impossible but it's an absolute hoot, I just find myself maniacally laughing all the way down. There's also something beautiful about the simplicity and relative quiet of riding a steel HT. I love my 27.5" Stif Morf to bits but I think I've just found its replacement.
