On Board with Faustin Figaret, Radon Factory DH Team - Video
Daaaaamn. That was fast. Looked way more impressive than that Gwin video posted earlier. Track is sweet. WC worthy maybe and a good place for a finish line too.

Street Racing with GutiƩrrez in Manizales - Video
As far as urban DH goes, that was extremely tame. Wide smooth roads and wide bends. Hardly any narrow step sections or obscure drops. Not even any huge doubles. Still, looked Fun hough.

Pinkbike Poll - How Much Dropper Post Travel Do You Prefer?
Surprising reading the comments... As someone who is 'only' 6'3" I have to ride most XL frames with the seat post at max. From a visual perspective I hate to see bikes with the seatpost at max height. Looks horrible. I ruled out a Kona Process as a new bike for that reason. And I doubted very much it would even fit at all anyway. But some people are seeming to want this super short seat post for some reason. Stack heights on bikes are already way too low. The dorp to bars on my bike is close to 8cm, thats more than some roadies use! And yet there are XC racers trying to get their bars as low as possible on a Medium size that still have a positive 'drop'! Makes no sense. I digress.. Anyway on my XL recently got my 125mm reverb warrantied and I got a 170mm in replacement and it's just way too much. I never need to lower my seat that much.. I always slam my seat then end up pressing the button trying to get the right height of about 150mm. This also brings me to the fact that I don't like these infinte adjust posts.There is no benefit I see. Basically I want 3 heights. Full, Tech, and DH. I spend ages trying to get the right Tech height (or even DH with the 170mm). I can't just press the button at the top of a decent or trail, I have to fiddle for what feels like ages to get a good height, For me, I think and after market upgrade for a reverb would be a 3 position controller.

Don't Get Hung Up On the Numbers - Opinion
When I was a kid my mum had to go to a bike shop and but me a new front skewer because mine got stolen from my bike at school. I was gutted when she gave it me because it was really heavy compared to the original one. She couldn't understand it, she thought it was expensive so surely it would be heavy?! More money = more weight. Maybe she thought it was made of silver or something! So with that logic of course more travel costs more money.

Don't Get Hung Up On the Numbers - Opinion
@PhotoCal: I'd argue with enough skill you could ride anything on a hardtail, but just because you could doesn't mean you should..! Hardtails are more tiring over long distances over tougher terrain, you don't need to constantly hover over the seat, they are also slower the sus over anything remotely downwards pointing and rough. Sure you could do it but why. The thing I never got and never will is the even MotoGp bikes have full suspension. They are designed to race on the smoothest surfaces available yet they are suspended. You don't see hardtail MotoX bikes do you. Yet when it come to mountain bikes that need more effort to ride and you would think benefit from energy saving suspension the most, people want to act all tough and ride hardtails or rigid. I just don't get it.

Warner's POV - Red Bull Foxhunt 2016
@makdthed: if you use the term 'beat' then it's competitive, i.e. race.

Warner's POV - Red Bull Foxhunt 2016
That's a race? Joke. If your going to have a mass start it needs to be long enough to do something about making places. That was infuriating. And what was the point of the first half? Walking!? For how long who knows! Dumb. Least the multiple line choice points looked fun.
