Exclusive Ride Report: FOX Live Valve Active Suspension System
RC: Well written. I'm convinced it works. But I hope I can resist this (felt that way about droppers too, but more resolve this time).

Opinion: The Dirtbag Life
hmmm... Predictable refs to the use of food stamps and welfare to support the "dirtbag" lifestyle in comments. No mention of public $ to support the inevitable health care needs. I submit that minimizing debt and consumption while getting outside and remaining fit are excellent goals. However, living only to recreate is hollow and selfish and requires others to carry you.

Ask PB: My First DH Race, Larger Frame Causes Problems, and Tame Those Nasty Cables
RC; The recent shift to longer top tubes and shorter stems confuses me. Theory: Assuming the same reach and stack (and head angle) are achieved with the 2 diff setups, then the wheel base is longer and the front axle is farther forward relative to CG and handle bar. You would therefore need to get more forward on the bike to weight the front wheel the same amount. Real world anecdote: I've gone back to longer stems (50mm to 70mm on my trail bike and 35mm to 50mm on my freeride bike) with big improvements in cornering and I no longer feel too far over the bars. I'm 6' tall and ride a sz L 2014 Uzzi and a sz M 2015 Spider comp 29. So why are shorter stems/longer top tubes better?
