YT Announces Full 2018 Rider Roster
It's great for the manufacturer and the consumer not so much for the local shop. I really do try to go to the LBS if they might have something I need but the future of the industry will be direct to consumer sales for complete bikes and parts will be online (kinda how parts are now) With YouTube tutorials most people can keep their bikes on the road/trail which sadly leaves the LBS in the dust. I've had to say it plenty of times now but when the LBS tells you 'We can order it for you' I always politely say 'No thanks, I just came in to see if you guys had one in stock'

Process: How Chromag Makes a Bike - Video
@vernonfelton: Yes. I do realize that, what my comment meant was you guys would reveal a new standard from a company that supports/sponsors Pinkbike. It would just be nice to see more unbiased reviews. I get it you guys gotta get paid, but a little more constructive criticism would make readers feel like you're on their side (the consumer) and not in the pockets of bike component companies.

@Scottybike36: They'll make up for it by dropping a new standard by the end of the day.

North American Handmade Bicycle Show 2018 - Round Two
True there are many 'hipster' type builds but look at the other end with DH racers in florescent clown suits. I don't want to sound like I'm hating on either but the good thing about a handmade bicycle show is you get to see many outside the box ideas along with refinements to tried and true designs. (Me I love downhill but I don't like the bro-moto culture that goes along with it)

Carbon vs Aluminum: Separating Environmental Fact From Fiction in the Frame Materials Debate
@jeremiahwas: There are more machining costs because of the material and weight issues are more of a manufacturing cost difference so it's understandable that aluminum would be perdominant over steel but you could design a steel frame at equal performance but it's marketability is deterred by production costs.

Carbon vs Aluminum: Separating Environmental Fact From Fiction in the Frame Materials Debate
Steel is going to (kind of already is) have a resurgence in the industry. Up until the late 80's early 90's that's pretty much what all bikes were made out of. Frame geometry is plateauing and we're nearing a point where all 'changes' to standards are just to make it feel like your new bike from last year is now irrelevant. Not hating on other building materials it's just since the inception of the bicycle anything other than steel is a flash in its evolution.

Bike Check - Carson Storch's Prototype Rocky Mountain
@YoungGun13: They didn't even say if it was 26" wheels. I think PB gets fined if they say anything other than 27.5 or 29er

Brandon Semenuk's 2018 Trek Ticket S - Bike Check
Great looking bike, just being picky but the close up of those welds on the upper yoke look a little dirty.

Pinkbike Poll: Does the Current Method of Mountain Bike Classification Make Sense?
@PaulinhoCascavel: Doesn't make them money of course they wouldn't mention that discipline! I know they can generally be the same bike but don't forget 4X too!
