@zacjob: soon as you put E-wings on a bike: cost/performance ratios go out the window.

That video is straight porn for those of us that loved the CNC era of mountain bikes in the late 90’s/ early 2000’s. Beautiful blend of steel and AL. I’d love to ride it, but it’s a beauty for sure.

Specialized Diverge EVO: Gravel Shredder, High-End Hybrid, or Just a Rigid Mountain Bike?
I can’t get insurance with a deductible for as low as $2k anymore in Colorado. Used to be $500 but After the fires and floods here, they won’t give a new policy with a low deductible anymore. It would be pointless to even make the claim on the house policy.

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 6 - Over Biked Or Under Biked?
I’m constantly switching between being under or over biked. A long travel trail/ enduro bike vs 7 year old twitchy xc race bike. There is fun to both, but I reach for the bigger bike more. But it’s nice to pull out the xc bike for days that border on gravel bike days or when I just want to feel a two wheel drift at the edge of control on easier trails.

Pinkbike Poll: If Every Ride Was Solo, Would You Still Mountain Bike?
Yup. I started riding with only friends or would have to force myself out solo for an occasional training ride. Spent years doing huge group rides, but eventually got tired of someone always with a flat or a mechanical. Then I just riding with my racing buddies so we didn’t have all the madness of big groups. Then, I moved to a city where I knew less mountain bikers with weekdays off, so I started riding solo more. Then, I had a kid and just fit rides in solo when I could. Now, my 10 year old is pretty fun to ride with. So, I will ride with him and my wife for whatever loop they are up for, then I head back out solo for whatever I can fit in. My twice a year guys mountain biking trip has faded out as all us dads have had near impossible time aligning calendars. It’s all good though. I still love riding now as much as ever and somewhere when I was training for ultra endurance events, I learned to love the long solo rides with the headphones ( really the only time I get to listen to music solo anymore outside the car, so it’s both my chance to either check out new music or enjoy old favorites). In short, in my 35 years in this sport, I’ve switched to a group only guy to mostly a solo rider and whoever wrote this damn survey is some damn young punk who somehow thinks solo riders are assholes. Fuck him. Now, get off my lawn.

Cotic Launches the RocketMAX Gen3
I have to say from personal experience of having several Horst link bikes and single pivots, I’ve always appreciated the stiffness and reliability of the single pivot despite all the old magazines that always praised a Horst link. Although, I am a fan of mini links now that I have a DW link bike, I would get a single pivot bike again without hesitation. I can’t say the same about a Horst link Bike. Also, I have to admit I am a huge fan of the British handmade steel frames. These look beautiful. I’d love to figure out an excuse of a place in my garage for one.
