Top Three Finds - Interbike 2014
I don't know that I could ever feel comfortable with oval chain rings. Much like the lefty fork, looks matter. If it looks or feels weird, you are much less likely to feel comfortable riding it. Plus, as a kid growing up with bio pace, I seem to remember that it did climb better but it felt uneven ( sort of a power on/ power off crank rotation) when ever you upped the rpm on the cranks: flat riding and downhill.

Video: Blowing Out The Lead With Palmer
I am very curious to see what comes of this. Palmer and Lopes on the same team could make some really good things happen for Intense. I do like the moves Intense is making: new bike, new riders, new coach. They're taking chances, which is a good thing for the sport.

Answer, Knolly, Nicolai - Eurobike 2014
Explain to me how making a bike heavier at the wheels( by increasing from 26"-27.5) makes it climb better? E13 proved just the opposite yesterday.

Riding Jared Graves' Prototype Yeti SB6c
Good read, more articles like this one please. I too run my Fox fork at 70lbs. Jared Graves is really starting to transcend the sport beyond racing. By letting a journalist test ride his actual bike, he is putting himself into the realm of legends like Tomac, Cunningham, Garcia and Hans Rey.

Ladies Get To Downieville In September
This is a great place to ride. I have been there three times ( including once this year) and intend to go again next year. But more importantly: events like this are growing the sport. In the last five years I have seen more females that are riding serious bikes, on real trails and hauling @ss, than in my first fifteen years combined. When it comes to trail access, there is strength in numbers.

But at the end of the day the bigger wheel size didn't impress me. I am going to ride my bike until it dies and then buy used. I think that the industry has seen the last of my dollars for new bikes.

I rode a bike with 160mm of travel with 650B wheels. It weighed a good 4-5lbs more than my bike with 160mm of travel and 26" wheels. Bigger wheels means bigger frames for full suspension.bigger frames equal more weight. The extra weight and size was noticeable, the extra traction that you allude to was noticable.

Never mind Willie, You're doubting my "experience " even though physics confirms it. The freight train analogy was really a compliment. Meaning the 650b bike descend like it is on rails. But the extra weight and extra turning radius are part of that trade off... Which is what different size wheels are : trade-offs.

Yes, I did: Norco Range. And for the record, I did recommend a 650B bike to a friend because it did fit what they wanted the bike to do.
