This series is improving. This one may be useless, but at least it's not wilfully wrong like the last one on steeps. Great work!

Pinkbike Poll: Should Enduro Transfer Stages Be as Tough as Pro XC Climbs?
Why not give them all day, and set a time limit in which they must be done the whole race? Plan badly and awards are done by the time you get done the last stage.

I am a bike instructor. This is terrible advice, and it's exactly the kind of thought process I try to get my clients away from. I teach a lowering of the hips by bending the elbows and knees, which does move weight back. The reason it moves back though is to stay centred on a bike that is tipping forward, allowing a full range of movement. This is an ongoing process of matching the body's COG to the bike's centre. Imagine a line running up from the ground, through your bottom bracket and into your hips. You want that line to be vertical. Just leaning back by straightening the arms locks the body out, making recovery impossible and often shifting balance too far back, decreasing front wheel control. The point about braking is pure garbage. If anyone here is using mostly rear brake on steep descents I will personally come teach you how to ride a bike.

Up for grabs here is a wicked cool one off custom frame with a solid mountain oriented collection of parts. Great condition with no damage beyond slight cable rub. Frame is raw so no noticeable scratches. I bought this frame hoping I could reconcile with the fit, but sadly, I could not. My loss is your gain though, because this is a wicked commuter that can easily do double duty on the trails as is, and with the addition of a decent fork and some different rubber it would be a great hardtail xc rig. For the money you wouldn't even go wrong with the parts alone, which are as follows: Chromag Seat Clamp Shimano SLX Crankset Chris King Headset Fulcrum Red Metal 10 Rims Sunline V3 Pedals Shimano SLX Derailleur Avid Juicy 7 Brakes Easton Havoc Bars Salsa Rigid Fork Shimano Deore Hubs ODI lock-on grips Shimano Deore Shifters SDG Seatpost SDG Belair SL Saddle NC-17 Bottom Bracket ZZYZX Stem (110 mm) This is a very unique bike, and I'd love to see it go to a good home. Cheers, Matt
