Review: 2019 Pivot Trail 429 - A Little Bit of Travel, A Whole Lot of Fun
Like the 429 but love the Ripley, with the new one out this weekend I’ll wait and compare before spending.

Review: SQlab 610 Ergolux Saddle
I've had several SQLab saddles and currently am on a 611 with Cro-Mo rails, after 5000 miles still love it. Just be sure to pay attention to the weight limits of the saddle before you buy. I'm 215-220 and have snapped rails on numerous saddles including SQLabs. Their Cro-Mo saddles have a 100kg (220 lbs) limit, most of their other saddles have a 90kg (198 lbs) limit. Even following weight recommendations I tend to need a new saddle about every 3 years.

BikeYoke Revive Dropper Post - Review
Between my bike and son's we've had a Reverb, two 9point8's and a Transfer. The Reverb has been terrible, constant bleeds needed, and cold temps cause issues. We both love the 9point8's but mine lasted 5 months and needed to be sent back as the collar came loose,which I was told had never happened. My son's was great for a yr but then kept losing air, sent back for warranty and now 3 months later issue is back. My Transfer was new in June and thus far no problems. The feel and function of the 9point8 is fantastic but sending the post back to Canada is a pain, if this is truly serviceable at home it's worth it.

Poll - How Clean is EWS Racing?
@dtrotter: yes your right. i am competitive but I guess for me knowing it meant nothing to anyone for me to place in a Cat 2-3 race i personally couldn't see the sense, but I agree with you. In my 50's now and seeing what many friends I know outside of cycling that doped for college sports are dealing with health wise (heart issues)now makes it even more clear that it wasn't worth it.

Poll - How Clean is EWS Racing?
@ScandiumRider: I read that Outside article as well "I couldn't be more Positive" . I raced road for years from my teens into my 30's and it amazed me to find several people using all kinds of banned stuff to improve their results. These were guys that got nothing for their results except maybe a few dollars or parts so for me it made no sense.

Shimano XT Di2 - Double Header Review
@shredteds: no not a true DW I know...I should have called it by its true name. I think he knew what I meant though...that possibly suspension might be causing the issue...I never figured it out on my bike and just switched drivetrain. I even used teflon inner housing over the section of cable where it was fraying, just cut through it after a ride or two.

Shimano XT Di2 - Double Header Review
Had the exact same problem and even after talking to several mechanics with no fix I just switched to a XO der. and shifter. Issue is now gone. I ride 4-7 days a week and was replacing the rear cable about every 3 months, even had two cables break on the trail. I've been riding 25 plus yrs and never experienced this problem. Just a guess but on my ride (Fuel EX) I was thinking might be the DW suspension causing it, who knows?

Mountain Biking Is Not a Crime - Opinion
@ryanbpoquette- for many areas your opinion is probably correct to an extent but not when talking about the area the article is generally speaking about. The trails in the EastBay were built up by BMX riders generally way back in the late 70's, and most of it was just ranch land with Diablo State park the exception. How do I know? I'm old and grew up here and know several of the people who built them. All of the park land/open space created in the area had no mention of rules banning bikes until into the 80's and even the 90's. So you see in this area it's the opposite, bikers built trails and then years later rules were put in place banning us to fire roads or from some areas altogether. Unfortunately we ignored the rules put in place and enforcement was lax for a longtime but as park users have increased the crackdown has started...I personally don't have hope it will change in the area
