Video: Remi Gauvin Tests Medium & Large Size Frames Back to Back
Agreed, I'm also 6'5" and only just feel like bikes are being made to fit people my height. For so long bikes would have tiny reach with too long seat tubes.

@mcvittees: That's what I think is most likely, perhaps some xc mechanics are like the Colin Chapman of cycling

6 Key Findings from Female Pro Riders - Pinkbike's State of the Sport Survey
I also wonder how disadvantaged women will be in sport where the status quo has male competitors earning unsustainable amounts? For example in football (soccer), men are earning ridiculous amounts and most people agree it is unsustainable, a salary cap has often been mentioned but never got close to implementation so salaries seem to keep getting higher and higher even if overall revenues aren't matching that growth. There is no simple way of capping salaries at a sustainable level in the men's game when the sensible level was long since passed. I feel equivalent sportswomen look at the men's game and want parity, fair enough. However I think people will see the salaries that the majority of female sports stars earn and see an opportunity to create a more sustainable salary structure and stop them ever earning the level that top male stars do. It's something that is arguably needed in all sport but it's much easier to cap something at a level that hasn't yet been reached than at a level that has long since been breached.

The article touches on the fact that pay is more about what a rider is worth to a brand regardless of gender or results. I agree that prize money should be equal but when it comes to money from sponsorship it might be a tougher by to crack in a sport that is still male dominated.

Now I've had a dropper post fail mid ride before, however it was a 6 year old Reverb that I'd never serviced so I couldn't be too annoyed about it. These bikes are race prepared by professional mechanics and are sponsored by big name brands. Dropper posts are hardly new tech, surely something else is going on here, whether it is untested prototypes or a mistake by a mechanic.

Comparing Anne Terpstra & Nadine Rieder's Ghost Lector FS Race Bikes - Albstadt XC World Cup 2021
Because they are a niche company who can't afford to sponsor many teams ahead of all the usual suspects. Remember, pro riders don't always ride the best bikes, just the best bike that their sponsor offers.

I don't have an issue with Claudio, but I don't think Richard Cunynghame should have been replaced in the first place
