Field Test: 2021 Specialized Epic - The Lightest & Slackest
Summary: Canyon Lux. Great gravel bike (XCM), terrifying mountain bike. Cannondale Scalpel. Really fast pretty much everywhere but not an engaging ride (high BB?). The rougher and longer the course the better. Trek Procaliber. The bike that really seemed to put a smile on Sarah's face to ride. Great traction, great climbing, more attention needed descending but a great all around XCO race bike. Specialized Epic. Fast on the smoother climbs, fast on the rougher descents but not on the bits in between. Lovely to descend but annoying to ride. But erm... have you seen that red :)

BMC Fourstroke and Scott Spark would be a nice comparison to these other XC race bikes but only the Spark would fit the XC vs DC theme I guess

4 Things we Learned at Silver Star - Crankworx Summer Series
What Brett Rheeder can do on a big bike shouldn't be taken for granted- there's no doubt a ton of work gone in to the success you see today. Someone needs to dig out the first video he made on a DH bike when he was known as just the slopestyle-small-bike guy. Let's just say he has come a heck of a long way since then!!! Respec'

Video: Friday Fails #129
This week: Kids shouldn't extend jumps themselves, no-one knows which direction the landing is at, coming to a rest with your head against a tree isn't recommended and a whole lot of brake control that is not Remy-esque

Must Watch: Remy Metailler Hunts Down Squamish Gaps
It must be terrifying to have those skills and have so much insanity planned when you pop out on the bike!

Video: Testing Trails and Jumps with Cam Zink
I really don't get the more recent Cam Zink videos. I feel on the outside of some in joke or something watching them. Hey ho

Video: Ripping on the New Status With Joel Anderson & Matt Roe
Gun for hire! How many new bikes has Joel made look absolutely mind blowing? It can’t be the rider can it? Who wouldn’t want a half of that lad’s talent!!!!

Video: Specialized Epic vs. Viathon M1 - XC Hardtail Cage Match
@clink83: @clink83: I completely agree with you having done the same thing with the whole 1 degree different = a vastly different bike nonsense and not noticing at all. Geometry is the sum of its parts not just HTA/ STA/ Reach like most reviews seem to be. I can understand my comment could be more diplomatic but no idea why it is downvoted so much.

Bike Check: Russell Finsterwald's Specialized Epic
@stumphumper92: It is a pro bike check not a catalogue weight (don't get me started on how optimistic they are). When asking what is the weight of your bike mister, the answer is xx kg as ridden. It isn't tricky :)
