$450!!!??? Try a big PVC with a tank valve, pressurize with that bike pump you have and use a hose with a spray nozzle. Itll be about $50 at home depot.

I agree with the seatpost insertion, that's so so short...
Too heavy to be a good trail bike ? Maybe, but I don't really care, the rotating masses are far more important than the overall weight anyway. Too slack ? Maybe, I don't agree but everybody has his own style

Okay, this can't be even more click-bait-y, but I'll bite...

First of all, to get one thing out of the way - Peter is an ass. End of story. No discussion needed.

Now onto the real issue:
This has nothing to do with entitlement and everything to do with spoilers.
Yes, that simple. You might be a News Outlet, but the results of a race that people obviously enjoy watching might be a special case and therefore treated differently. Like a TV show for example, RedBull themselves are advertising tuning in for the Live Event and also the Reply.

Here are a few analogies:

- When you go to Netflix/Amazon/Blockbuster and pick up a title/dvd it doesn't say "Bruce Willis is dead in the end", similarly when you go to RottenTomatoes to read about films, the titles aren't "Rose lets Jack die even though there' space on the plank". Especially not near the premiere/release date.

Should we avoid going to IMDB to avoid GoT spoilers in the headlines? No, because that's taken care of.

- The library, you pick up a book and surprise - the ending isn't written on the back.
Then when you go to Amazon or Penguin or whatever, we know it's cool, the headlines aren't "Snape is a cool guy, saves Potter in the end!".
How ridiculous would that be? And can you imagine the hatemail you'd be getting then?

It's really that simple.

So, get off your high horse and STOP POSTING RESULTS ON THE HOME PAGE!!!! /s :D
(and if not...whatever, it's not the end of the world)

Whether your opinion is right or wrong, there are a fair number of your readers who agree with Peter. We just don't act like dicks about it...

The SB150 is so capable that there is no need for this (for me. Heck, I retired my DH bike). I also think the guys who could put such a bike to good use can not afford it (and don't need carbon and switch infintiy) and those who can afford it don't really need it.

Bare in mind these were not “for the camera” just functional proper scrubs. I’m going to have to go with Mitch for the pure violence and Finn for the finesse and precision

Good rule on bike checks: Leave the weight blank if you haven't weighed the bike.

Zee 11 speed is a mistake ofc. This is 10 speed. Minion DHR? Check once more. HR not DHR. Other parts like NS Bikes or Dartmoor. Godziek Brothers, check them out. ( Dawid Godziek used to ride for Daartmoor, as well as Szymon, for now they are both signed with NS Bikes ) Octane One is a cheaper NS Bikes, this is same brand, just for wayl less money. Accent is well known in Poland and distribute by Velo.pl. Two same pictures? They are not the same, second is added by admin with "BOD" tag. Other pictures will be added after this weekend, i dont have much time to upload everything at once.
