Ibis Mojo HD3 - Review
@Feldybikes, Dw bikes tend to feel tall when riding them. Especially before the suspenison starts to cycle through its travel. More of a on the bike versus in the bike. It takes a little getting used to at first, it will feel a little bit tippy at low speed technical descending. But once you begin to the trust the bike, you don't really notice it.

Video: Lopes and Kovarik vs Squamish
I am thinking its an uzzi with a Lopes twist. Maybe a shorter wheel base?

The HDR is a great,great bike. And the customer support that Ibis offers is the reason that I chose the HD over the intense Carbine. P.s. The new Ibis will Likely have a long waiting list when they finally announce its arrival date.

Pinkbike Poll: Oval Chainrings?
Can I vote no more than once? Bio pace may be good for some but I hated it back it in the day. I like the smoothness over the pronouncedup and down feeling of the oval. If the industry orders a code red on round rings like it did on 26" wheels, that will be a sad day.

Opinion: Improvement, Innovation, and Unanticipated Consequences
Great article and a good read but I have an issue with a few of the claims made in the article. 1. 1x systems are not new nor are they revolutionary. The front derailluer is the biggest problem that was never a problem: I have been riding for 20 years, I have broken lots of parts, but never a front derailleur... The narrow wide chain , on the other hand, is new and improved things quite a bit. 2. Shimano does not have the best braking system. I am not really sure if there is a best system since most systems are pretty good, so it comes down to lever feel and how much braking power you want to have versus modulation and weight for the application. How about Pinkbike does a brake shoot out?

Video: Strava Wars
I would be okay with Strava if they eliminated the whole KOM part of it. Here in the Bay Area, at least two deaths have occurred during a KOM attempt: one was a pedestrian in San Francisco and the other was a 16 year old boy in Orinda. You can say that strava is not to blame but it is definitely contributing.... It will end up costing us trail access... Rangers can track off course trails, speeds, etc... The less electronics I use on a ride, the better it is.

Endless Biking: Where Have All the Ladies Gone?
What I am implying is that they need to make dh bikes in size extra small. If you offer an alternative paint scheme for female riders you will sell more bikes. In the last five years, the number of women on the trail has risen greatly as the availability of serious female specific bikes has increased.

Endless Biking: Where Have All the Ladies Gone?
So there are a couple of things going on here: 1. Change is coming, I see more and more families mountain biking here in Marin County, this is why we have high school leagues across the entire state of CA. I would argue that the mountian bike is great equalizer between the sexes. Especially, now that bike manufacturers figured out if you make bikes for females, they will buy them and ride them. Which leads me to my second point: there needs to be DH and female specific mountain bikes if you truly want that segment to grow. As for me, downhill racing was a 5 hour wait for a 4 minute ride...

Opinion: Incremental Steps and Boring Times
The next big innovation is addition by subtraction: Eliminate existing wheel sizes. Eliminate existing drive trains. Eliminate existing axle sizes. And electric suspenison and shifting seems to be at the polar opposite of why most people go riding in the first place. If only we could eliminate riding with ear buds in and Strava KOM's
