Shimano Launches Pro Bike Components Koryak Dropper Seatpost - First Look
It really depends more on your leg length in relation to the rest of your body and the design if the frame you are riding. I'm relatively short at 5'9 and am riding a 125mm dropper on my reign. However I have long legs compared to my height. Which means for the correct length bike I am a long way above it. I have 50mm of post showing between the collar and the frame and while the 125mn does the job a bit more drop would always be nice

Stages Cycling - Power Contest
Yea definitely something up with the numbers. Unless you had uplifts or were pushing up and barely peddling on the way down. Then you might be able to get numbers like the ones mentioned. In which case its completely rubbish data anyway

Giant Trance - First Ride
Didn't like the trance 29 personally. It's just felt like a slow anthem that didn't quite have the guts to thrash it any harder than the anthem. Loved the 29 anthem though.

Pinkbike Poll: Flat or Clipless Pedals, What do you Ride?
Clips are a must for those of us with rubbish ankle flexibility. Shimano SPD on the mountain bikes and Shimano SPD SL on the roadie. Only Shimano kit on my mtb.

@MTBrent:I somewhat disagree with the idea that horses are any less natural than riding a mtb. For a start horse riders use plenty of 'unnatural' devices, items and products to help them enjoy their experience in the wilderness with their method of transport. Saddles, Bridles, Bits , Horse Shoes, Helmets etc. All of those items are not naturally occurring and have been developed by humans, to provide an advantage. The only difference is that they were developed a very long time ago. I think the main question should be that of tranquillity and peacefulness. If you are not disturbing others with loud noise (MX bikes) and are generally considerate of other users there shouldn't be an issue. PS. I have nothing against horses or mx bikes

Forget the organiser, this mess is on his head. Its all the series participants that this is a real loss for. Losing both good races, time, plans and a sh1t tonne of money!

Certainly feels like that us what is happening. This is the most unprofessional mess I have ever had the misfortune of having to deal with. Over 400 pounds in entry fees and no communication at all about refunds or any real information at all!n

Ask Pinkbike: Suspension Setup, Cassette Queries, and Tire Tips
The DHR IIs are brilliant. I've taken to running them both front and rear on my trail bike. Switching out for a shorty up front when it get properly soft and/or wet. They feel very similar to a dhf but definitely roll faster and are more predictable than the HR2s in corners.
