The Best Bike In The World - Feb. 24, 2017, 5:12 a.m.

Bravo! Nice to see you haven't lost your (man-specific) sense of humour!

Credit where it's due - this is the best system on the market, if only by a small margin. If I've dropped $6K on a bike, I'm not going to quibble about $70 system that works great. Good job milKit!

What’s Fair as a Bike Reviewer? - May 12, 2016, 2:14 a.m.

My two cents: nope. Failures caused by assembly are not bike failures, they're sloppy work by whoever put the bike together. Manufacturers have no control over these things, and these days parts are so good that failures are bad luck more than anything. As a reader, I want to know how the bike performs at it's best. I want a bike review, not an assembly review. Now, if only reviewers could find a way to make comparisons to other bikes some of us have ridden to give more context to "lively, climbs like a goat," and all the other hackneyed phrases… Bike reviewers work hard to figure out the nuances of a bike, that knowledge should be shared and not buried in manufacturer-friendly marketing copy (hint eds).

Michelin Wild Race’R Enduro Rear Tire Review - May 2, 2016, 7:20 a.m.

Great review on the tire, but could you PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do a comparative review of the Bos Kirk vs CCDB Coil? How coil-like is the Bos? Do you notice the weight difference while riding? Give Bos some coverage in the English press, and feed the coil vs air enduro debate that the 11/6 is opening up! Thanks!

Actually, this is Mont. Veryier in France, near Annecy. Not the town of Veryier near Geneva.

Amazing ride - anyone know which mountain that was? In the Jura, but where?
