Cannondale 2017 Preview - Press Camp 2016
@vinay: the fastest racers, of any discipline, will always have the latest stuff. In over twenty years of racing I have never seen anyone stand on a podium who had a bike more than one or two seasons behind.

First Look: Ellsworth Rogue Sixty - Press Camp 2016
You think bodoncdonc booty is a downside? That's like preferring margarine over butter, or maple flavored syrup over real maple syrup.

Yeah. Tony couldn't shut up about how good ICT was, but the moment the Specialized patent expires...

Now THAT Was a Bike: 1996 Klein Mantra Pro
The Szasbo would not have been as bad as this because of the placement of the pivot.

I do remember articles talking in general about URT versus 'everything else'. Similar to elastomer versus spring debates.

Ridden and Rated - Five Trail Knee Guards
@dh1stan: I thought so too but after a few rides and hours they stretched and now fit perfectly. I'd prefer that to starting out comfy and then stretch to be too loose.

Ridden and Rated - Five Trail Knee Guards
I have the Fox Launch Enduro kneepads and I love them. Probably as much protection as the S ones above. Very comfortable by the third ride. Use them every ride now and I used to hate wearing protection. No idea how they stand up in a crash, but I got them mainly to prevent skin-loss on my everyday rides.
