First Look: Trek Debuts 3 New Bikes for 2016
The Fox iCD remote lockout cables go straight down. Probably has more to do with how stiff and how sensitive to sizing the Rockshox hydraulic lines (and mech cables for other remote lockouts) are, compared to the electronic wires.

First Look: Trek Debuts 3 New Bikes for 2016
I looked again and see there are similar holes in the downtube (for zip ties) near the cable exit port, behind the bottle mount. Trek uses that cable exit port for the FD too, since they use Shimano side swing FDs. See for yourself: http://www.pinkbike.com/photo/12401178/

What do those model graphics on the top tube and seat stays look like in full? Are those holes in the Procaliber and Top Fuel top tubes for zip ties or some other plug-in guides for dropper post cables?

Chainring is also moved outboard 3mm.

The shock compresses and the cable moves, creating rubbing issues. Not enough clearance designed to flip the shock upside down, and even then the full floater design will still result in some movement.

Video: Trans-Provence Day Six
Not enough coverage for this! This is the one big event on my bucket list, that I dream about riding. I find it to be a pleasant coincidence that the music chosen for the soundtrack for this video fits my tastes almost exactly.

ENVE Goes Wide With HV Rims: First Look
They thinned the rim sidewalls, changed the bead bump into a gradually ramped bead seat, and shortened the height. The tire well seems to be slightly bigger though. Can't tell if the sidewalls are taller or the same height, from the illustration.

Orbea Occam 2016: First Look
250 kg to fully compress the shock? That's like a Nomad v3. Considering a 160 lbs rider, with 60:40 rear to front weight distro, that would take a 551/96 = 5.74 g force, or 3.44 g if all weight were on the rear. Not what I'd expect from a leverage ratio curve like a Pivot, made to straighten out a typical air spring curve, unless the air volume on that shock is very low. In contrast, a Bronson and Enduro 29 take about 140 kg to fully compress the shock, but I think they're more interested in maximizing traction than pleasing huckers.

And the Winner of the Trek Slash is...
Embedded video without controls is about as cancerous as videos shot in portrait orientation.

Ask PB: Foxy vs Mega, Fast Rolling Rear Tires, and Crank Arm Lengths
I've switched to shorter on my FS bikes (FSR and low single pivot). Shorter cranks sometimes aren't shorter in length. Sometimes it's just the pedal thread insert that is offset. That'll reduce pedal strikes, but not crank strikes. Crank and pedal strikes are brutal on frames... I suspect that my habit of pedaling through strikes as if they didn't happen, as my method of countering them, caused my CF frame to crack along the drive side of my CS by the bridge. I'm 5' 7" and ride 1x, giving up some high end gearing, preferring to spin 60-80 RPM. One reason to switch to shorter. ;)
