Knolly Launches Updated Fugitive Trail Bike
I don't know if the bearings in my 2017 Endorphin are original as I bought it used from a PB member, but I think they are and they are indeed Enduro MAX and surprisingly still perfectly fine here in 2024. That said, I haven't removed the chainsay to verify what brand the main pivot bearings are. Fun fact: I priced-out the complete bearing kit with Canadian Bearings through work and they were about $70CAD more than the $120CAD Knolly wants for the set. The 608's are nothing, but the dual-row angular contact main pivot bearings are where the difference is. Props to Knolly for that!

Pinkbike's State of the Sport 2024 Full Rider Data Release
I tried to take this survey but just a few questions in and it's asking me about how I feel about rider compensation levels and ridiculousness along those lines... how the FiretrUCK would I know??? I have ZERO DATA to support any of my answers... so I gave up. WTF?

2023 Pinkbike Awards: Mountain Bike of the Year Winner
It's massively ugly on so many levels, and none of them in a good way, and I thoroughly enjoy ripping, wrenching and looking at my 2017 Knolly for reference. Hard NO. Sort yourselves out! Pitter patter bud

Pinkbike Poll: What's The Least Awful Word That Means 'Not An E-Bike'?
Mountain Bike. If it has a motor it's a motor bike. A motorized mountain bike. An electric dirt bike. It's not a mountain bike.

KS Release LEV Circuit Wireless Dropper Seat Post
The only batteries I put on my bike are lights for night riding. I have a car with three pedals to operate it but I only have 2 feet. My truck requires occasional adjustment of the valve lash using wrenches and tools. By birth year I'm supposed to be an early millennial lol Deep in the woods on a bike is where it's at, the rest is just consumer junk single-to-noise ratio problems

KS Release LEV Circuit Wireless Dropper Seat Post
Yep I'll ride plenty of trail sections with the seat down an inch or two or three because it's a mix of tech features where I want the maneuverability with seated pedaling sections in between. But I'm not so fussy as to go "dang I needed another 3.18mm of seat height for my optimal leg angle but this cable lever contraption is tooooooo much work" lol
