Ask Pinkbike: More Travel, Locking Out, and Switching to Clipless
Rode clipless for years, never tipped over once. Actually unclipping becomes subconscious and you get out fast enough to catch washouts. Switched to flats because clipless is bad for riding unknown technical stuff where you want to session a section and you need an awful lot of distance to clip back in and it messes with your focus. Now i am totally confident on flats and apart from the occasional shin bite and now and then when i am really tired trying to burst up gnarly climbs i pull the foot off the pedal on upstrokes - oh and downswitching under load might lead to losing a pedal as well unless you are used to it. Its more in the mind and habit. Unless you know a section by memory like a wc pro and want to milk it for every tenth flats make more sense to me. I find clipping in always more of a gassle than out.

Pinkbike Poll: Weighty Issues
Carbon handlebars are comfortable and expensive. Maybe the only place where carbon really makes sense besides a hardtail frame or fixed seat post.

Pinkbike Poll: Weighty Issues
On a more serious note you got to keep replacement costs in mind as well: had an off in a rock garden and everything seemed fine. Then i discovered two small but deep gouges on the sixc handlebar. 150€ deep. Made me seriously consider going back to alu bars but while i waited for the new sixces to arrive i rode some alus i had lying around and thought the carbons feel way better. when it happens next time though i am probably going back to alu.

Pinkbike Poll: Weighty Issues
If you weigh all your parts before assembling your bike you can later scale how fat and dirty it is at any given moment. Makes it a bit more alive with personality: you put on a bit of lard there around those bearings darling.. or seems you need a good scrub behind the seat tube you little scoundrel.

Video: Stoked on Moab with Amanda Cordell
Was lucky to detour from a business trip to utah for one day moab riding and have first hand Ahab experience: She's good! Looks so effortless but believe me all those rolls like 2:42 are steep and bumpy and you can go OTB any moment if you don't watch it.

Tech from the Pits - World Cup DH, Lenzerheide
Even with correct limits a wide a shift over several cogs under power/rough ground can have the chain slip into the gap between smallest cog and seat/chainstay IMO

Chainline and catches the chain from falling off to the outside.
