Parent Company of Performance Bicycle, Fuji & Breezer Files for Bankruptcy
@Laurengregg: a lot of people had a really bad day today, including some I know personally. I hope it all works out for the best and I have no ill will towards anyone. It was a flippant comment that sponsorship is the least of anyone’s worries when jobs are being lost and whole units are potentially being shut down. I apologize and I genuinely hope things work out for you and everyone involved.. I take no joy in any of this.

Dude seriously, that’s who you are most concerned about? Never mind all the people who work at the stores, creditors who are going to get screwed, you are most concerned about some random woman who parleyed owning a van in to minor bike industry fame finding a new sponsor....

Trending: Mountain Bike Tech to Look for in 2019
Will Specialized ever make a 29 Demo or will they give up on DH and continue to put all their developement money in to ebikes. When does the Santa Cruz ebike come out? What if the reason the 29 V10 isn’t out yet and the Hightower LT hasn’t been given modern geometry is because they are putting all their RnD in to ebikes? Will Superboost 157 take over? How does that fit in to ebikes? We are at the end of the non-pedal assist era and there is nothing we can do to stop it

Review: Shimano XT Flat Pedals
Seems like a basic replacement level pedal. Nothing exciting, nothing ground breaking. Not really worth full retail, but at 55$ ordered from some German site they aren’t such a bad proposition. Otherwise they seem like the best option for people who insist on running Shimano for everything. I’m not sure what the next flat pedal innovation is, but it seems like Shimano could have come out with it if they wanted.

First Look: Trust Performance's $2,700 Carbon Fiber Linkage Fork
Target audience for this fork is the guy who has an XTR build Pivot 429 with ENVE’s who rides six miles a week and spends an hour before and after the ride telling everyone in the parking lot about the German headset spacers he ordered. Just remember that DW is way, way smarter than you.

First Look: Industry Nine's A35 Stem
It’s actually made in America and that counts for something. I get it if you want the absolute cheapest stem possible. But if going to spend 150$ on a block of aluminum and bolts might as well support your fellow American.

Video: How to Buy a Mountain Bike
In real life Jess doesn’t ride with other male mountain bikers because they are all either super insecure and try to show her how good a rider they are or super thirsty and creepy and say super cringey and awkward things to her. Also, don’t forget you have to put stickers on your 4Runner/Tacoma to show people how much you love the lifestyle.

Opinion: Why Have Bike Makers Ignored this Grassroots Fix?
Have you taken a close look, and I mean taken a close look st the fit and finish of some of these brand new 4000$ frames? It’s down right horrendous. I was looking at a brand new 5010 CC that seemed to have bypassed the step of sanding on the inside of the front triangle. Look at the seat tube/top tube junction on an Ibis and it looks like a glob of bondo. The paint quality on these new bikes is just not that good. It appears that they are cutting corners to save money on paint prep and paint quality. Personally I hate the look of running around with a condom on my frame but if you plan on selling your bike, you have to do it.
