Wicklow Fairytale - Enduro World Series, Round 2 - Wicklow
I don't know. All I know that it is not invincible, braking occurs more often in natural world than marketing and post-purchase rationalization indicate, while aluminium is cheaper to replace. Just trolling really...

Wicklow Fairytale - Enduro World Series, Round 2 - Wicklow
But carbon was supposed to be virtually indestructible, no? This slogan from 5 years ago: "if we hear someone breaks carbon frame/component we should be more worried about what happened to that person", as if only circumstances causing near fatal crash could break carbon... Disclaimer: I own carbon frame and carbon rims... aluminium stem spacers though...

The First Showdown - Nove Mesto XC World Cup
That was one great coverage Pinkbike! You guys can do it better than Bike Radar :D I want that trumpet for my Reverb... Then I saw someone running a Rocket Ron - on Xc race it's like running a Minion on Enduro race! I don't give a damn if those guys are running no droppers and no wide bars, but... those tyres in those conditions - They are Wizards! I give you sun salutations on my knees.

Opinion - The Spot
I like your existential approach to MTBing Mike :D I guess this falls under: "why do we ride?". I gave it a lot of thought during and after coaching with Ryan Leech. I have this spot you write about, it is what many call "golden hour". It is that time of the day, 2 hours before the sunset. It doesn't matter where I ride and on what, my spot, my place is being on two wheels in those 2 hours with vivid blue sky and that golden tint of light giving yellowish tint to everything that is green and sun rays seem so sharp, piercing through the leaves, through every void they can find between me and everything that makes the forest. I feel submerged at that time, a true present, a four dimensional experience. I wondered why is that so, I wanted to explore it, then I read some article that scientists figured out why sex is good. That it is good for your heart, skin and your mouth muscles - lots of nonsense, off course the best case if you get orgasm... I learned one thing by working with Ryan and through my interest in psychology - don't rush it with rationalization. It will come to you when the time is right, when you are ready. Don't look for too much reasons, otherwise you will rape it and find something banal, distorted. In this way I found the 5th dimension, it can be related to the idea of flow, it has to do with consciousness. At least my spot has also to do with where my mind is between consciousness and subconsciousness, that thin red line, between deliberate and automatic action of mind and body :D Cheers! it was a good read! Keep on kicking @RyanLeech #flow #goldenhourisaplace

Bike Check: Nino Shurter's Scott Spark - Nove Mesto World Cup XC
@kdstones, No1 - don't take stuff out of the context. This was a one bloody rock, I'd hit it myself without a dropper and I'm sure you would too. The issue is not about how hard you can go without a dropper, it's about why not use an obvious advantage giving you seconds for free? If you win a quarter of a second on every corner on descents, a second or two on every tricky section, improve regeneration after uphill by riding descents more relaxed, then those things add up during the course of the whole race and create some good advantage. There is no questioning what so ever that saddle lowered by 10cm improves all aspects of bike handling. Saying that Nino could ride most of Val Di Sole DH track on his XC bike without a dropper is probably true, but it's like saying that Nino could lap me on XC race on Dual Ply Minions in Slow Reezay while I would ride his regular bike. Sure he caaaan, but why go there? I tell you what, If Rockshox and Fox, each made a dropper post, lighter by 50g than Reverb or DOSS, and then (this is the important part) they would market it as "XC specific", almost all those riders would be running one. Shimano could easily make a Di2 shifter for Fox, that is coupled with suspension lock out(s). It would sell like donuts on Police memorial.

Bike Check: Tanja Žakelj's Trek Superfly SL - Nove Mesto World Cup XC
Rs-1 looks absolutely stunning in person. As to people riding what they are paid to, A. Everyone does that in all disciplines of MTB, air springs in DH, hello... B.If Nino can win on 650B against 29ers then obviously 100g on RS-1 against equally flexy SID is not going to make a world of difference.

Oddities from the Pits - Nove Mesto World Cup XC
It is so hard to press SLX shifter three times to go through the whole range of gears in same time. Di2 is totaly worth it, can't wait until it trickles down to Deore and becomes perfectly affordable... noooooot

Oddities from the Pits - Nove Mesto World Cup XC
I am sure that they are masters of taking a dump and have a bunch of philosophies and a dozen of techniques how to do it right. I bet Absalons poop smells of sandal wood and his large intestine is smoother than his legs. Therefore your argument of taking a poop before a ride is INVALID. You are out of your element
