I have a question what to stop with…the rear is v-brake and the front is mechanical disc…I ride in the forest most
Speaking of suspension, seems like hardtails are making a comeback a bit as well, especially with plus-sized and even fat bikes.
upgrading to tubeless and dropper post hasbeen one of the best upgrades ive had
trends I wish would catch on: bikes designed to last longer and be more durable not only for hucking it but for riding over more than dirt and rocks (I tore a derailleur off of my bike last year and it trashed the spokes too) coil suspension with lockout (because you can't beat the performance, durability and consistency of coils vs air) no more lowering of bottom brackets, they feel great in bike parks and on smooth trails but as soon as there's anything on the trails 3 inches tall (roots rocks branches) your bike just becomes a pedal smasher threaded bottom brackets (already catching a little bit but I'm sick of my $4000 trail bike creaking like it's not put together properly) and adjustable geometry (I'm looking at you, Specialized, Ibis, Orange)
That wasn't a trends video that was a history of the last few years of developments
Not exactly news!
sayin' moving from 27.5 to 29 im n 26 still and like 80% of followers of yours
Screw the bike industry i will wait for the 36er
one piece of there bike problably already costs as much as my entire bike
29er hardtail is my way to go in the flat Netherlands. I rode a downhill bike once, I'm not sure if they where 26" or 650B. If I had to guess I'd say 650B
I'm still sticking with 26"
