Absolutely. Really well put together and natural interview style that isn't painful to watch like so many!

Refining the Hardtail for 30 Years - Video
In fairness, it is nice to have the rear brake hose out of the way for downtube dings. A rare occurrence to split a hose like that but it does happen.

Robin Wallner's Ibis Mojo HD3 Bike Check - EWS Round 5, Aspen-Snowmass
@bluumax: @bluumax: Agree. I know these races are already a long day in the saddle, are already a heck of a test of fitness and the gravity side it what makes enduro sexy but most of these series claim to be about finding the "most complete" rider and a bit more balance on the climbing side could truly find the most rounded riders and equipment.

How The Other Half Live – EWS La Thuile
@u-otter-b-sry: A lot of the "privateer" guys with small bike deals have even less say on what to ride than the pros.As an example, someone I ride with gets a bike for a year with the option to give it back or buy for discount at the end of the season and is only allowed to change contact points to preference during the season

Bruni and Vergier Against the World: Season 2, Episode 4 - Trailer
Not sure why this was neg propped, Finn is having a stormer. I like how his section on this trailer was just smooth as butter clip followed by podium shot... sums him up!

Bike Yoke Cable Conversion for Reverb Dropper Posts
@groghunter: It is true, there is a substantial weight loss on the LevCi by using the plastic outer and Powercordz style fibre inner. I went with a standard inner and plastic outer (Quaxar do a very cheap version) to have most of the weight loss but without the fragile fibre inner cable (at the expense of less than 10g's). Plastic outer cable and Lev Carbon remote is a good weight loss for any cable dropper, whilst keeping the functionality and robustness and I am 99% certain you'll drop a fair few g's compared to the Reverb hose and remote, even though the Ci-style setup is at the more extreme end of cable setups weight wise.

Bike Yoke Cable Conversion for Reverb Dropper Posts
@UtahBikeMike: :) I would if I could! I started MTB with a Marin Mount Vision at the time when every man and his dog rode one, and most of them were bearded hippies with sandals... it was kind of the stereotype rider for the Mount Vision... always felt left out ;)

Bike Yoke Cable Conversion for Reverb Dropper Posts
It's funny hearing complaints like "it'll freeze in winter" and the general negativity. Never had a cable freeze, but if your dropper is freezing then your shifting is pretty screwed too, non? I see this as a good thing for a few reasons. First, easy repairs. Bust a cable and it's a quick fix with a gear inner/ outer. Bust a lever and you don't need to hunt for the one specific thing that fits. If you are racing or travelling somewhere new it is really easy to get these spares. You could also argue the cable makes the bike and post easier to travel with too. Second, you open up almost unlimited lever options to find something that really works well with your preferences and amount of crap already on your bars. Third is probably the most contentious, but the cable option gives you scope to drop weight over the stock hose and lever if that type of thing interests you. At the end of the day a shonky dropper will be frustrating regardless of whether it is hydraulic or cable operated but it is nice to have some other options on the Reverb IMO, particularly with regards to spares and repair, plus finding a lever that works for you.
