Nolan does at least. Tyler, from what I can see here, you handled this in a very respectful way. Hopefully not too much of a lose-lose situation.

5 Different Storage Solutions on the EWS Circuit
@dthomp325: I used to feel the same but I’ve been converted. Vests are awesome when it’s a little too warm for a jacket but a little too chilly for just a Jersey. Takes the edge off, especially when descending. In spring and fall I always carry a super light wind breaking vest.

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 9 - Why Are We Doing a Cross-Country Field Test?
These have been fun to listen to. I have a follow up question I've been wondering about since the wheel size episode: In discussions of ideal wheel size, how come the "geometry" of the trail is so rarely mentioned as a deciding factor? I see the rationale in choosing a wheel size relative to body size, but it seems to me body size is only part of the equation. The other factor is the trail. Particularly on trails with lots of jumps and berms, those features are built to specific "specs" and while wheel and bike size increase, the tightness or shortness of berms and lips decreases relative to the bike. An extreme example would be a large rider on a 26" DJ bike. A bigger bike would make sense relative to rider size, but not to the terrain. So they ride the 26". Seems like the nature of the trail and the way you want it to feel when you ride should be paramount, maybe even more important to choosing bike and wheels size than what's fastest or "fits" best. (If you argue that bike and wheel size increases are small enough that it's not a significant factor on most trails then the whole "bigger is better" sales pitch becomes a sham.) In my experience, bike and wheel size is best discussed in terms of characteristics and trade-offs, not in terms of better/worse or right/wrong. Lastly, are we seeing trail building evolve in the wake of bigger, longer bikes? Disclaimer, this is not a veiled "26 for life" argument. I'm on an 2021 XL Sentinel and I love it. But dang it does feel really big and long sometimes.
