Fox Factory Invests $1 Million in First Year of Trail Trust
Hey now. Get yourself a steel rigid singlespeed and these blue flow trails are a blast with way less maintenance.. keeps your skills sharp for trips to the real trails on weekends.

Gwendalyn Gibson Joins Trek Factory Racing XC for 2023
Indeed! Sad to see her leave Norco and Norco's general policy towards factory support, but this is an amazing and well deserved opportunity!

Field Test: BMC Fourstroke LT - Gorgeous in Green
9 grand on a speed focused marathon and epic backcountry race bike and you get aluminum wheels? Wide-ish carbon wheels that are lightweight and durable have been the biggest equipment improvement for me in this category of bike. I thought surely this would be standard equipment on the 9k builds!

First Look: BMC Fourstroke AMP LT - Downcountry Motorized
@Jprestidge: I agree. Although those folks probably got an ebike because lugging a heavy enduro bike with dhfs on that same blue trail was hard and slow and boring. Perhaps if they had gotten the non motorized version of this bike with fast rolling trail tires to ride the undulating blue flow trail, they would have never needed the e bike? Idk

Wilier's Urta Hybrid is an Electric Downcountry Bike
Geo should suit the stability requirements at intended speed on intended terrain. Xc bikes are already snappy/twitchy at 12-20 mph on moderate terrain. This makes for a wondrous riding experience in those parameters given bike handing is sufficient. So with the extra power of the E-XC bike, either speed stays the same (pointless), terrain gets tamer (lame) or the stability suffers. Hmmmm

Review: Wolf Tooth Components Resolve Dropper Post
My oneup v2 had too much wobble even after receiving the larger diameter bushing pins. Nothing wrong with pnw/clones but they are all the same with PNW just upcharging for branding and CS. I settled on SDG as it uses the normal wintek cartridges and all parts are available and cheap. Replace $10 worth of collar bushing and T slots a year (5000ish miles for me) and wipe/regrease. This is end if year 3 for me

Norco Pauses its DH & XC Factory Teams for 2023
This 100%. I danced around getting a 120 marathon bike for two years. Even though I'm light , I know I'll lose self control and break a true xc bike like an epic evo. Hei heis are impossible to find. The Revolver 120 looked to fit the bill, but is like 6lb which is absurd for an xc bike and the same as my trail bike. Then I saw Gibson straight kill the short track at snowshoe and thought if a lighter female rider (bike weight larger percentage of total weight) can win a short track on it, then it's probably good enough for me...he sponsorship and performance is absolutely the reason I purchased a revolver frame. Hope she finds a new team and continues her fruitful career.

Norco Pauses its DH & XC Factory Teams for 2023
@v7fmp: I agree. I work in a high end equipment company that sells less volume than the mainstream competitors. We are having a terrible time with supply issues due to volume related buying power. Even though many of our suppliers are the same as mainstream equipment manufacturers. Limited raw materials, labor and shipping means the suppliers don't care to sell small quantities. I imagine this is Norco's issue, especially with a lot of size specific parts. I own a revolver 120 and search xr and have been ecstatic about the bikes. Sucks to see and I hope I don't have to test the warranty

Race Face Announces New Aluminum Turbine Cranks
@BikesBoatsNJeeps: nah. Those of us that care about power have sized based body geaometry and ideal hip and knee angles for a long time. 5'10" and 33.5 inseam here. Ideal crank length is around 165mm for me. My average cadence is a bit higher than 170s and power is up a few%, but mainly I just have less hip and knee pain. Also, spinning through chunk and corners is awesome
