Yeti SB5 Turq - Review
So basically, the guy tested a trail bike and expected it to ride like an enduro bike. Unfortunately we see more and more reviews like these. But damn, everyone is not looking for an Enduro bike ! If you look for a bike which soften everything, get something like a Santa Cruz Nomad or other enduro bikes. If you like to play with the ground, if you have teh skills to make your bunny-hop to clean the rough trails, if you want a dynamic bike , then this bike is an excellent option.

Make Enduro Great Again - Video
@h20-50: The difference is that when you work for the army, you sign for it and you commit to follow the orders whatever what they are. If I'm not wrong, a majority of American didn't vote for this "President" and therefore don't have to follow or even to support him. That's basically the difference between a democracy and a dictature. US is a great democracy and I'm sure people will counter part smartly current situation. Following.this guy, everyone, American first, would fail.

SRAM Eagle Drivetrain - Review
For the trigger, X01 has alu, XX1 has carbon. If you take the derailleur and K7 they have equal specs. Therefore, why is there any price difference, what are hidden tech differences ? I remember that, if I’m not wrong, with the 11v release, the X01 K7 had a better coating for similar weight. XX1 shifter used bearings providing a smoother experience. I just try to challenge if it makes sense to pay extra for the XX1 Eagle version. I just try to figure out, what's pure marketing and what really brings an advantage...

Thanks for this very good article. Just 2 questions : what are the differences between the X01 and XX1 release ? Is that a Yeti SB5 you are currently testing ? Looking forward to read that review !

Spawn Cycles Rokkusuta Kids Bike - First Look
So true and breakless please with no helmet as this is super trendy ! :-) But did you ever try to bring your kid on a bmx in the mountain ? I guess we are on a mountain bike site, right ? I did (with an helmet) and I don't know why, I have had manually to slow down my kid as the brakes didn't work so well... Got a lil shredder, works much better, trust me ! ;-) Joke apart, I solved the issue by getting a Lil Shredder and these nice Cult BMX for the street. BMX is perfect to learn technic and precision. Lil Shredder perfect to... shred in the mountain. 2 happy kids as well ! ;-) As a side note, very nice bikes shown in this article. Happy to see there more "affordable" options on the market.

Spawn Cycles Rokkusuta Kids Bike - First Look
Your kid can use such a bike for 2-3 years. How much did you spend for your bike ? How much do you ride it compare to your kids ? How much cost the fun to have your kid with you in the mountain ? How much cost a safe bike ? My bet : you probably better spend twice the price on your kid's bike than yours... As a side note, I'm as well well always shocked to see parents not willing to spend more than 10 bucks on an helmet as this is for kids. Maaaan !!! The head of your kid is probably as important if not more as yours. Stop looking at yourself and consider more the value of your kids.

Video: Introducing the Commencal Supreme Junior 650b
After selling overweighted bikes for kids... After selling unusable mountain bikes for kids with only one gear... (Supreme 20, in the mountain really ?) They did it : oversized wheels for kids Guys @Commencal, have a look a little on Lil Shredders, Norco, Early Riders, MTB Cycle Tech, ProPain. They know how to do bikes for kids and this has nothing to do with wheel size. When your kid's bikes weight nearly the same weight as the rider, that the rider can't climb a small hill and can't learn turning, I call that an anvil. Go back to your office and design real kid's bikes. Nice painting & marketing is not enough.
