Review: Pole's 190mm-Travel Voima is Long, Slack & High
I have a friend who has one. He he got the k1 size so of course I had to tell him that he has a small pole. Then I read above that it's not how they're pronounced, disappointed.

Bike Check: Ben Cathro's Santa Cruz Megatower is Smaller than You'd Think
I'm 5'11 and on a 490mm reach Enduro S4. I prefer another 5 or 10 mm of reach and the XL Megatower at 495mm might be perfect. I go faster on a more stable bike and have no trouble turning it when I'm on my game. However it does seem odd that I would like the same size frame as someone 8 in taller than I am. I do have long arms and legs but still.

Rev grips are awesome. They actually make me think I have more traction because the ride is a touch smoother and I go faster.

Opinion: Why You Shouldn't Care What the Pros Ride
Fit is an interesting topic. I remember reading that Richie Rude was faster on a medium than a large and there was a test in Enduro magazine that said so-and-so was faster on a smaller frame. From personal experience I've learned that I go faster on longer frames and I believe it's because I need stability to feel comfortable going fast at the limit. I have no trouble believing that pros can go much faster then I can with much less stability. I also believe they can use that ability to take advantage of a shorter faster turning bike. I'm 5-11 with very long legs and currently on a large with a 489 reach. I rode an Xl with a 510 reach and liked it more. I know it's too big for me according to current practice but I had no trouble turning it and can't find any other downside. The next can of worms to open is, if a longer, more stable and faster bike is more fun for a non-racer like me?

Final Results from the EWS-E Tweed Valley 2022
I'm in the US and my Shimano e-bike only gets to 18.6 MPH before the power cuts out. I know the specialized and Bosch motors go all the way to 20. I think class one in Europe might have a lower max speed but from my experience there's no way someone on a Shimano motor could compete and get second in mens.

The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly: 10 Editors' Clipless Pedal Setups
It's funny that being finicky and particular about your setup seems cool. I'm that way about somethings but man I'm boring about pedals. XTs, trail version or not, near max tension, cleats a little bit back from where they should be and then I don't have to think about them much. Well other than lubing them from time to time. 3 days in the desert and they start to feel a little stuck. I used to lube the springs but think a little dry chain lube on the cleat is all they need. Oh and it's hard to beat Shimano ME7s. I love the neoprene around the ankle that keeps stuff out of the shoe.
