Review: SQlab 610 Ergolux Saddle
I've owned $200 saddles, and $20 saddles. A properly adjusted $20 saddle trumps a poorly adjusted (or sometimes properly adjusted) $200 saddle. It all depends on your anatomy. I have not felt the need to change my saddle due to seat tube angle changes. The number of riders I see with the saddle all the way back on its rails, with the nose pointing 15 degrees downwards and/or a seatpost 2" too low makes me think an article on how to set up your saddle and seat height would be a good idea. Once you find a saddle that supports your sit bones, and not your taint, buy 5 of them.

Now THAT Was a Bike: Whyte PRST-1
"Aesthetically, though, it was even more challenging to look at – but it was even more amazing to ride." This is, and always will be a sticking point to improved designs; does it look good. Ultimately, myself included, I want to ride something that just looks like a bike should look. For some reason, telescopic forks just look right, as do round headlights on cars, and car wheels with 5 or more spokes.

Where's the New XTR? 8 Questions With Nick Murdick, Shimano MTB Product Manager
@VtVolk: No cross chaining, and as you mentioned, wider range, higher top end, and tighter steps between the gears

They're going to relaunch their 2005 era brakes that worked just fine as "Classics"

@bcgbr5: My 11-42 10 speed works great with an XT mid cage derailleur.

Shimano brakes; let's fix them until they're broken! I sound like a broken record here, but the early stuff that wasn't reverse bleed with a syringe just flat out worked awesome and still does. Why change it and introduce bleeding from the caliber up, and some stupid fluid cup that threads into the master cylinder? Stupid. Otherwise, I quite like Shimano, apart from the pins used in their chains, when a missing link would be the preferred option, a la KMC.

Pinkbike Poll: What's the Most You'd Spend on a Mountain Bike?
It all depends on where you set the bar; past about $20,000 for a new car, or $3500 for a new bike, your ROI diminshes quickly, the law of diminishing returns is the guiding factor for me. Everything has a sweet spot.

Pinkbike Poll: What's the Most You'd Spend on a Mountain Bike?
@StackingItSince1991: no warranty here either, but depends on local economy and supply and demand. Vancouver area has so many used bikes that prices for used are usually a steal. People seem to have a lot of expendable $ here too.
