First Ride: Merida One-Sixty FR
To put things into perspective, look for a slomo video of an aggressive rider cornering on an aluminium frame without flexstays. Take note how much they flex all over the place in the video. Now check a flexstay cycling through travel and see how little they have to actually flex to allow that. My point being, normal aluminium seatstays flex way more during use than most people realize, and few question their suitability for the application

Mondraker Unveils Prototype Downhill Bike - Fort William DH World Champs 2023
If I remember correctly, they went from "alloy is all one needs" to "actually, this carbon one is better" in less than one year ? Only to now, not that long after, showing up with a new one all together. Maybe it's just me, but this kind of very quick iterations for such a product are not very conductive to confidence on the brand.

Bike Check: Keegan Swenson's Downieville-Winning Santa Cruz Blur TR
Wouldn't exactly classify the front Rekon as "sketch", it's a pretty standard light trail tire

UCI Limits Some Transgender Athletes from Competing in International Races
@tomsgr: would double upvote if possible. I also belong in the "straight, white dude" category, but also happen to be a husband and the father of a little girl. I'd be failing my duty towards them if I was to stand down based on my personal identity. That's just a very convenient way some people found to silence others

First Ride: SRAM's New GX Transmission
@gbeaks33: the big selling point of the Transmission for consumers that are not interested in electronics (like myself) is mostly the mounting system rather than the absence of limit screws. I see no reason for a conventional cable+limit screws arrangement to not be implemented with a Transmission type mounting, but others please feel free to prove me wrong here

Bike Check: Maxime Marotte's Rockrider 940S
@TEAM-ROBOT: this. You'll see this crazy slammed stem setups particularly with riders 175cm or so. Modern XC bikes front ends are pretty high, specially in sizes from M and below. Ninos bike is a good example. It looks like he's running crazy low bars, but I saw his bike in person the other day and his saddle to bar drop is surprisingly the same as I have on my Spark (184cm rider, L bike, "only" -10┬░stem and 10mm spacer)

Amaury Pierron Sustained a C5 Vertebrae Fracture In Lenzerheide
@danstonQ: no one here is implying that he is literally taking his runs as a kamikaze as in having a death wish, but rather that he seems willing to take more risks and walk the line than other competitors

Bike Check: Pauline Ferrand-Prevot's Pinarello Dogma XC
Happy to see XC kind of being cool again. The fact that the current crop of bikes are actually fun to ride and capable might be a big factor. On a side note, go check at how fast those Continental Race Kings are, as in faster than most gravel tires fast
