It drives me nuts to try and adjust a bar with no tick marks to adjust roll. Trying to get my cockpit better set up on my Pivot 5.5 and the pivot branded bars have no marking, come on Chirs Cocalis! On my previous bike, I had bars with a lot of backsweep ... more »

I'm behind what Jeff was getting at. Bikes are fast. Fast things scare hikers. Motos scare hikers. Which one is more scary? Depends on what people in certain areas are used to. P.S. They are still heavy.

Reply to Is the 29 / 27.5 combo (97.5) bike here to stay? 3/22/2019 10:36 AM

It's bikes. They will go fast under fast people. Having ridden both a 29/27.5 and a 27.5/26 I think they ride fine.

Always appreciated these additional sleuthing posts and nerding. Something that got me in the GG article was the supposed "recycling". This quote notes that the idea of recycling this stuff is still not totally there:" This also allows for the recycling ... more »

Interested to see how their business plan looks...becoming a profitable brand that can bank roll a team? Bike industry is a fickle one and the next global down turn *cough SOON cough* might make this a very risky move

Good sleuthing and may Ronnie Mac RIP... Really hoping something lines up for Dak, most humble and hard working dude.
