Here's a short response from Banshee on that topic: "No 650b specific version... we wanted to offer a pure bred 26" DH bike as they have advantages for many riders. And not many other brands still offer it even though lots of people want it."

To each their own. I think it looks pretty rad for a MTB shoe.

Props on getting paid, Danny. Microsoft, you can achieve more potency being a touch less obvious. Peel it back next time.

Added a new video SO FAST! Blasting Fall Lines with Tom van Steenbergen 11/20/2014 10:42 PM

Following a huge crash during a 73-foot frontflip attempt at Red Bull Rampage, Tom van Steenbergen has been spending his time in Kelowna, British Columbia healing up. Judging by his flat out speed and incredible style, we'd say Tom is 100% back in action. Makes you want to grab your bike and find some tacky dirt, doesn't it?

Wow. That was the most cohesive frame review I've ever come across! Kudos. Plus, I like that the writer took an approach more to the layman than what a pro would be seeking in a bike.

Somewhere between scaling wild ridgelines and hopping over Playboy Bunnies, Danny Mac found the time to prepare for this stunt performed in front of the London Eye. "This is one of the biggest setups I have ever ridden and the location is amazing. To have a five meter loop floating on a barge is something surreal." - Danny MacAskill The video itself is a bit commercial (it was a PR stunt for Microsoft's mobile personal assistant software Cortana), but there's some cool insight into the attempt and behind the scenes footage that makes it worth a watch.

Have to imagine it's in the works, but as of now they just have it in the 31.6mm size.

There are few motivators as strong as some friendly sibling competition, and in this case Rachel Atherton is doing her best to avoid being caught by her brother Dan. Filmed on the Climax Trail in Mid Wales in typical Wales winter conditions.

The two are in a very similar class - not what I'd call true Enduro race rigs, but more so all-around all-mountain bikes. This is reflected in the suspension leverage curves (relatively linear), available travel, and geometry. You can read our Bronson impressions here. The Ibis has more anti-squat built into the system, and likely better initial sensitivity. The Bronson has less pedal kick back and may be lighter if my memory serves me correctly. Both use a short dual link suspension design so rear end stiffness should be comparable, and both use a threaded BB. We have yet to ride the Bronson with the DBinline.
