Pole Bicycles Announces New CNC-Machined 'Machine' - Press Release
They are going to sell it as a "self-Shuttle" machine that means you don't have to take a lift or vehicle to the top saving untold whales and lowering your carbon foot print.

Pole Bicycles Announces New CNC-Machined 'Machine' - Press Release
I can't wait for the Pole eBike. Blind Pole hype and bandwagoning vs reflexive hate of eBikes. What will win out!

Bontrager Line Pro 30 Carbon Wheels - Review
I feel you bruh. I'm just going to say that I'm a snob and it's hard being a snob sometimes. Something about the Bontrager name just screams "too cheap for real parts", no matter how good the product actually is. Same goes for Syncros, Roval and any thing with a house brand name on it. At least it isn't Light Bicycle. Everyone says they are great, but that's like the dude who buys a 12$ Timex and brags about how it keeps better time than a Rolex.

Trek Session 9.9 DH 27.5 - Review
It's an example of how irrelevant Shimano is becoming. In the past, nobody wanted to be disinvited from the next Shimano launch or get taken off the list to get free product to test so everything was awesome. Now people can call out Shimano for what they have become and tell the truth because there is nothing to fear. Nobody cares about Shimano so it doesn't matter if Pinkbike doesn't get invited to get a sneak peak at the next XTR. Kind of like how it's safe to call an RST fork junk because nobody cares about RST. Or Hayes brakes.

Trek Session 9.9 DH 27.5 - Review
8 Grand for a bike with five year old Saint on it. At least the V10 (which has an equivalent quality frame in terms of fit and finish) comes with Carbon cranks and drivetrain/brakes that have been updated since Obama ran for reelection.

Ridden and Rated: 5 Four-Piston Brakes
I guess since Saint has been out on the market for so long, it's ok to call them out for being inconsistent. I love how the reviews have changed over time from SHIMANO MAKES THE BEST EVER to calling out the inconsistency and unreliability. In 2020 when Shimano finally gets around to updating these with the new BEST BRAKE EVER the process will start again. The reality is that Shimano is an innovative company that is resting on their past glory and now that their quality control is falling off there is zero reason to buy them

Truvativ Announces New Descendant 35mm Handlebars, Stem
I notice with my highly calibrated hands that the 35mm is 3.2% stiffer than a 31.8, but the diameter for the fork stanchions makes a big difference too. Like on my 35mm Pike I noticed 2.8% more vibration, but on my 36mm Fox I noticed 3.7% more flex. Also, the stem makes a big difference. I used a Race Face 32mm stem and there was .754 less compliance then when I used my 35mm Chromag stem. And of course, I used it on a bike with an internal lower headset cup and then on a bike with an external lower headset up and it was roughly 5.5% more torsionally rigid. In short, more research is needed.
