Video: Neko Mulally On Frameworks' First Bonded Downhill Frame
This is a good instructional video. The way the bike industry is going, we’ll all be doing this soon if we want a new bike.

Mass Redundancies Reported at Wiggle Chain Reaction
@privateer-wheels: Even if they did, that probably wouldn’t have helped them. 2008 showed us that everyone just runs in the same direction with only 5% of people who know what is actually going on. I work in finance and economists are just in the business of self promotion. Our chief economist was a massive bull. A client asked him what he could see as potential pitfalls for the year ahead and he just rattled of a bunch of positive scenarios. That was December 2019…

Dimitri Tordo Off Canyon After 6 Years
They're a bit cagey on details though. For all we know they're just slimming down the contracts to a point where it doesn't make financial sense for riders any longer. I doubt Canyon is going anywhere, but if you're not selling many Enduro/Trail/DH bikes, it's hard to justify maintaining an expensive roster "for the love of the sport".

Brook Macdonald Leaves the MS Racing Team
@davetrumpore: Sorry to be correcting you, but he was never paralysed. You can’t be paralysed and then “get mended”. Once your spinal cord is severed, that’s it. Having suffered a triple spinal fracture with metal in my back, I can attest that you do indeed have to learn to walk again given that you’re flat on your back for a few weeks though. Your muscles atrophy at a rapid rate. On top of that, he most likely still has the metal in his back which decreases mobility to a certain extent. You can wish it as much as you like, but chances of being 100% the same are slim after such an injury. It’s the unfortunate risk of the sport, but bike companies aren’t a charity. It’s the same for many professional sports.

2023 Pinkbike Awards: Suspension Product of the Year Nominees
@BermSkid72: That’s because you only read the lines you want. I guess, “I rode mine…it was terrific”, “Was able to dial it in perfectly…” etc don’t count? We’re not trying to sell you a Cane Creek, just to have you stop dissing something you’ll never ride. You probably think Ferraris are bad cars because you’ll never get to drive one.

What type of nonsense is this? They're not nearly as niche as EXT etc and I know plenty of people on them. They've had some stinkers in terms of reliability in the past, but so have Fox and RockShox. You can't say something is bad because you've never tried it or never will. That's just called being a moaner.

Orange Factory Racing Announces it Won't be Returning in 2024
@justanotherusername: Hit the nail on the head. Covid happened and the bike industry became greedy. They saw demand rocket and their prices followed. It's just the way of the world. Give it time and the brands with decent business plans, good distribution networks and value for money bikes will survive. Sure, some niche players will fold, but will this fundamentally change anything for the vast majority of mountain bikers? No As for the athletes, most of us never get to live their dream. For some, it will just have to become a hobby, but that's what it is for the majority of us.
