Wouldn't it make more sense to put the seattube on the non-drive-side? It shouldn't matter for the pedalling forces, as you are standing up anyway, but the bike is already heavier on the right side, because of the drive train. Not sure if any of what I said matters or makes sense, I'ld just like to know why they put it on that side.

Why would they need to be long??? As long as it's challenging, it's alright. I mean, 1min would probably be a bit short, but Windham was just about 2min I think, but riders were still wasted after their run, because it was gnarly and they had to put all their power down.

Fischbach, the fastest in seeding took 3min to get down, I mean that's not the longest track ever, but it's alright I think, I know a lot of tracks that are way shorter. By the way, Gee Atherton won Val di Sole in 3:12min last year, so that's not a lot longer, and no one is going to argue that that's a worthy track.

Results Seeding Run Schladming
He tried to train harder, but it didn't work. I think he just needs to have fun to do good, maybe if he trains, but has no fun, he just rides bad. And even if he does more workouts, I don't think he has the physiology to compete against guys like Gee Atherton, etc. He's whining a lot, but he's right! There should be a good mix of tracks on the WC circuit, but right now, there are way more pedally tracks than technical tracks. Andorra last year was great, but this year there's nothing like it. Hafjell and MSA are cool tracks, but they're not like Schladming.

#OnTheHunt - Team CRC/Nukeproof - Leogang
I liked the last couple of OnTheHunt videos, but that one wasn't very good.... filming, editing, music... it just all wasn't very convincing.

Practice - Leogang DH World Cup 4
I think it's really stupid what these guys are doing, making "protectors" out of cardboard. All of them have some kind of clothing/safety gear sponsor, but they'ld rather wear cardboard then their sponsors gear? If I was Fox/Oneal/TLD/etc. I'ld forbid it. There is really good protection out there, which is a million times more comfortable than cardboard, but the riders make their sponsors look like total idiots! I'm not wearing full protection on a casual ride, too, but if I'm at a race or ride a lift accessed trail, I'm always wearing back and chest protection.

First Look: 2015 Shimano XTR – Eleven Speed Cassette - Choose Your Drivetrain
Sorry, but I don't get it... they made a wide range cassette, but the range isn't wide enough to run 1x11, so in the end you'll have to run 2x11 which is like 2x10 but with more unsprung weight... Ok, the unsprung weight factor probably isn't too bad, but it's still completely useless!
