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...

SRAM Eagle Drivetrain - Review
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.

Making Your Grom's Bike Park Experience Epic
The Frechdax 1 has a spinner fork. True. The 2 and 3 have a specific carbon one.

Making Your Grom's Bike Park Experience Epic
To set a 24" pike on a 20" bike is in my opinion not a good idea for the reason mentionned upper + for a grom of 20kg, even at 40psi, the fork will nearly don't move. Under 40psi, the fork will go down on its own weight. Another reason is the weight : 1850g. Your grom might be around 20kg, to give him an heavy bike is not very nice... My kid's bike has the MRP : not a good fork for groms. Nearly doesn't move except with my 60kg weight... I'm very tempted to set the Propain Firsride Frechdax fork which is only 1400g and cost around 400 Euros. Sounds like it has been designed from the start for groms... Btw, less expensive and better equiped than Lil Shredders : ProPain Frechdax

Pinkbike Awards: Innovation of the Year Nominees
If I understand correctly the Canyon concept when going downhill : put your ass on the back, push a button to change the geometry (and pray you set your body at the right place), push another button to set your CTD in descent mode, then don't forget to push the button for the seat post... Ohhh s.... I have already to come back to uphill mode ! Put your ass... What about usable innovation ? When I read all comments, sounds like no one reinvented the wheel. Astonishing. Innovation is not only about reinventing the wheel, it's maybe just to take an old idea and to engineer it better for usability and performance.

Pinkbike Awards: Trail / All-Mountain Bike of the Year Nominees
@Blackthome Didn't know that Pinkbike was a website only for US guys. I even have some doubts when having a look at the flags on this forum. That said, there are plenty of good brands outside of the US : Canyon, YT, Lapierre, Commencal, Banshee, etc and there is no doubt Pinkbike can test all of them due to its worldwide visibility. My 2 cents, other brands didn't pay enough to be in the list...
