Canyon Strive CF Race 9.0 - Review
Opinions are like arseholes, everyone has one. If you like your 60mm great. No one is telling you, you must run a shorter one, just saying what they prefer.

Canyon Strive CF Race 9.0 - Review
I've ridden stems from over 100mm in the 90's down to 30mm on a Mondraker. I'd imagine most people who have been riding mountain bikes for a while will have done something similar. After riding a bike with a longer reach and shorter stem the vast majority will prefer it. Why? Because it improves the bikes handling. Personal preference and what is most efficient are two different things.

IMO there is no downside to running a shorter stem on the right bike. Companies like Canyon are producing bikes that are long enough so that you can run a 35-40mm stem and still have the same reach as if you had a 60mm stem. Great idea, but make it in a big enough size so it works for tall riders.

Because I happen to like short stems. That's the interesting thing about life, people like different things ;)

No XL in the race geometry. Do German companies not understand that their are people over 6'2 who like to ride mountain bikes? I'm out.

Downtime in The Alps With Richie Rude and Jared Graves
The quality of photos is very high on pinkbike, but I agree, these are something else. The combination of composition of the landscape and framing of the riders is superb.

Video: Church Two
I agree. The first church is one of my all-time favorite videos. The riding in this is great, but it's lost some of the magic of the first video.
