Poll: Will Dropper Posts Become The Norm In World Cup XC?
I remember when the first Gravity Droppers came out people didn't think they were necessary unless you were racing the Megavalanche or Downieville races. And now they're heralded as the most important thing in MTB since decent suspension and working disc brakes. Give it time and they'll all be using them.as the XC tracks become more technical

Video: How Do the Enduro Pros Set Up Their Pedals?
There was a video on Dirt years ago where Fabian Barel explained how he did this. Basically he cut the slots on his Shimano shoes further back to mimic the flat pedal position while still getting the benefits of clipless. Did this to the wife's shoes and it made the world of difference. Probably moved her cleats 10-20mm back. Before that she felt that she was standing on tiptoes on the pedals.

Sick Bicycle Co Responds to Anger Over Undelivered Frames
This seems like a fluff-piece, no real questions asked Or answered. And the answers they do give don't seem to match up with what the customers are saying. Whether through deceit or bad management they seem to have taken the money of quite a few people who got nothing in return. And then we're dicks about it.

Randoms: FSA, SixSixOne, Magura, Ringle, & More - Garda Trentino 2019
My 661 Kyle Strait knee pads were the most comfy pads I ever wore. Nothing I've tried has ever come close (apart from those Race Face padded lycra arm warmers, but they don't count). I stocked up on them when I heard they were discontinued. You could pedal in them all day, race DH or the Megavalanche and fit them under you jeans for done street riding.

Carbon Chainrings, Clever Tools, and a New Smart Trainer - Taipei Cycle Show 2019
Just wondering if it's noticeable having a tool in one end of your bars? I know people who whinge that they can tell if their bars are a tiny bit misaligned.

Review: 2019 Whyte S-120C - A Long and Slack Short-Travel Trail Bike
Nearly all the reviews for 110-130mm trail bikes seem to start with some variation of the words 'Long and slack aren't words usually associated with 120mm trail bikes...'. Seems like a lot of the new ones do, so maybe time to amend that
