Gee & Dan Atherton, Kade Edwards and Kaos Seagrave Shred Their BMXs at The Dyfi Skatepark – Video
@WAKIdesigns: Yeah I know but I thought these guys deserve more love to offset the amount of fun they're being made of. Especially as it appears to me that some take these jokes as the truth.

Here's My Zerode Taniwha Test Bike - Tell Me What You Want to Know
As this model comes with a chain not a belt I wouldn't call it zero maintenance but that aside. How does it compare to a bike with Effi (Cavalerie, Nicolai or that other model with the Fox40 stanchion featured recently)? How does it compare to a bike with Rohloff (only thing I can think of would be 11ants currently). Recently I chose not to go for a (hardtail) frame with Rohloff or Pinion because I thought the investment was a bit too high considering I don't pedal consistently but more kind of put in a few hard strokes every now and then and then coast and pump. And from reviews I read these gearboxes (hub or frame mounted) don't react direct enough to keep this as fun, so I stuck to my conventional (1x9sp) gearbox. So yeah, how does it react?

@WAKIdesigns: Not sure if people aren't looking properly but when he's enjoying himself I think you can really see. And when he's grateful (for instance for the people who helped him build the Hardline course) I think it really shows. He's not Olly Wilkins (who can smile extensively) but to me that doesn't appear he is any less passionate and happy with what he's doing. Same goes for Gee though obviously I think he's feeling more pressure to perform and of course much of what people see is him around races. Which for the past few seasons also implied him being injured, out with a mechanical or simply caring more about Josh getting injured at the worlds than himself taking the title.

Knolly Moves Entire Lineup to 157mm Spacing
@KNOLLYBIKES: What's proprietary about offsetting a rim? Anyone can lace a wheel like that, just change the setting in the spoke length calculator and dish the wheel accordingly. Agreed it will reduce tire clearance but as you intend to use 157trail on all your (new) frames, I suppose there may be models which benefit more from a stronger wheel than from wider tires.

Knolly Moves Entire Lineup to 157mm Spacing
@Veloscente: Depending on where you ride there may be places where 3" makes sense. But people also buy bikes depending on where they live and probably accept that bikes can be different. It strikes me thought that with all that width out back they didn't take the extra step to just shift the hub off center to create equal flange spacing (like Syntace did with regular boost to create EVO6). Maybe you won't be able to fit 3" tires anymore but it should get you a stronger wheel return.

I think the audience has been vocal about not wanting marketing BS so the marketeers jumped into that and now market their standpoint of not creating marketing BS. I think this way of marketing is getting boring real quick so I expect we'll soon have to deal with marketeers who market the company standpoint of not marketing their avoidance of creating marketing BS. I think once we've reached that point the PB audience will be tied in a knot discussing what level of marketing BS they just read.

Mondraker Foxy Carbon RR SL Review
@Uuno: Yeah that's correct, there is more to geometry and rider position. Still I think the new frame will allow me to put much more weight over the rear because the front center will simply become so much longer. Which is good as (aside from needing more room in the cockpit to maintain good posture but also for my kneepads to clear the handlebar when climbing) I'm losing the rear end way too easily now when cornering. But still for steep descending as Mike mentions it should be doable to unload the rear even when on a longer bike. It just takes practice to do so consistently and reliably. Thinking of it, the Mondraker does look a bit like the BTR, with that small reinforcement tube near the head tube ;).

Cam Zink Off SRAM & RockShox
For the kind of riding he does he can probably get away riding single speed.
