Jared Graves' Specialized Enduro
yeah, wassup with not riding a 29r? (honest question, not baiting. I'm still on 26" and beginning to plan for my next bike. I was under the impression that 29rs were now getting to the point they are better at gravity-oriented riding. But I'm wondering why we aren't seeing more of them at EWS style events? Is it simply that the burly tires and rims required at those events would be too heavy in the 29" declination?)

Finished: Tahnée Seagrave - Ask Me Anything
Do you wish the whole Cyclepassion calendar thing would just go away, or would you like to see male version to "level the playing field"?

1 Question - How Long, Low And Slack Can We Go?
What I really want to know is the influence of wheel diameter and width and it's applicability to geometry. Do 650b+ wheels require different geometry than 29r? Does a steeper 26" bike ride better than a similarly steep 29r? Answers... I need answers!!!

Snow Show - Les Gets Bike Park to Reopen This Saturday
you need a lift to ride?! news to me. (as great as lifts are, they're not the only option) It's also interesting to me that the overwhelming majority of the people you interviewed are expats.

2016 Turner RFX v4.0 Enduro - Review
nice bike. I agree about the Nobby Nic. Makes a good rear tire for fast, aggressive riding. Would be nice to have in a supergravity casing... hint hint Schwalbe....

seriously... why not just run a 2x? It's not like they risk losing a chain on the gnarly tracks....

Vittoria Barzo Tire - Review
Waki, what I've been wishing is for Conti to come out with an XKing with beefed up side knobs. I found their "crown tread" to be decent for me and my local trails. I'm still on 26 and on "narrow" i25 rims... my options wrt to the "new gen" low-profile, big sideknob tires is limited to the Rock Razor. And I find those small knobs too small, too tight, and too prone to wear to want to try them out. Also, my style of pedalling is to deliver lots of torque at low revs. I know people who can outride me on small block 8s in all conditions, but they're light weight xc whippets who use speed and momentum to get up and over tricky situations. These tires seem like they warrant a try at least.

Vittoria Barzo Tire - Review
this looks exactly like the tire I've been looking for. I went through two x-kings looking for a fast rolling rear tire, but found the knobs to be a little too low profile. My main gripe was the side-knobs, which were lacking and didn't hook up well under hard cornering. This looks like it might address my issues. Worth a shot for sure.
