Tariffs on Chinese Bicycles & Parts Will Begin Next Week
I don’t want an alloy frame though. I want a carbon frame. When the economy tanks at the same time the tariffs really kick in its going to be a blood bath. The pigs have fattened in to hogs....

But will this be compatible with the new Saint that is coming out in 2026?

Behind the Bike - Knolly's New Fugitive
Because aluminum frames never break. They just get giant dents they are only cosmetic. They never crack either.... All bikes break!

Behind the Bike - Knolly's New Fugitive
Is this Pinkbike’s way of telling us non CC/Turq carbon is garbage? Is this Pinkbike’s way of telling us 157 is going to replace 148? Or are these the words of a small player in the bike industry, albeit one with a vocal cult following that makes it seem like a bigger player? Is “cheap carbon sucks” just the 2018 “ocean fill”? Pinkbike knows the answer but no way in hell would they ever break those embargo’s... They are dropping enough hints to say “don’t buy a bike now. Things are about to change” All bikes are a ripoff today. If I have to spend five grand to get decent parts, what’s another 800$ to get good carbon. But why would I spend 6 grand right now on something that may or may not he obsolete in two years.

Review: Giro Riddance Mid Shoes
I wanted to like these. Wanted to change it up from free riders so I bought a pair. They are very comfortable, seem to be well made. Good toe protection and I really like how stiff they are. Just not enough grip. If they had Five Ten rubber these would be a grand slam home run

Bike Check: Geoff Kabush's Enduro-fied Yeti SB130
@thegoodflow: it might seem petty to you, but I have an Unno frame I can’t ride until I get my new XTR to put on it. I guess I’ll just use the time to have it covered in gold leaf and have an emerald studded top cap created for it.

Bike Check: Geoff Kabush's Enduro-fied Yeti SB130
@OriginalDonk: even the guys from Rhodesia and Czechoslovakia have the new XTR! It’s like Shimano didn’t learn any lessons and doesn’t really care about Enduro. They especially don’t care about regular people that ride in the USA.

Bike Check: Geoff Kabush's Enduro-fied Yeti SB130
So random XC pro racers from Yugoslavia and East Germany riding some bike you have never heard of can get new XTR but Richie Rude, Geoff Kabush and Yeti can’t get their hands on it?!? Everything is fine in Shimano land. No production problems here! Hope this isn’t because they have to redesign the brakes again. At this rate you will be able to buy XT from your local grey market importer in March of 2022.

First Ride: Yeti's New SB130
12% and 15% is because the people that can afford these can’t actualy ride them anywhere close to their potentially. Yeti has to make them feel good to their customers. Meanwhile, those of us who can actually ride have to mess around with spacers and send the shock out for a custom tune before it’s rideable. THAT is why the price tag is so aggravating. Give those of us who can actually ride real progression for our money!

@enduroNZ: they must make them in the same California factory my iPhone was made in.
