Cascade Components Releases New Brake Calipers - Sea Otter 2021
I'd be all for a way to improve or revitalize Codes with reasonably priced after market components. But it's awfully hard to see buying them when you can get an A4 complete setup WITH DISC for the same price...

Video: Flight Attendant - RockShox's Self-Adjusting Computer-Controlled Suspension
Interesting move by SRAM to introduce with but provide no info on prices and availability. If they had I suspect all the reactions would be to the price. Letting people get used to the idea and maybe start coveting these items, THEN springing the shocking price tag is probably a savvy strategy.

Racing Rumors 2022 Part 1: Luca Shaw to Specialized, Martin Maes to Orbea & More
Counterpoint: Greg + Laurie on Syndicate would put 2 of the most dissimilar top riders on the same team, which would be entertaining. It always blows my mind that totally different body types, bikes, tires etc. (e.g. Greg vs. Laurie) end up within a second of each other over a full DH course.

Review: 2022 Devinci Spartan HP - The Sturdy Trail Smasher
I’m used to 30lbs as the “quite respectable” weight target, but it seems like 35lbs is the new 30lbs with these high pivot bikes.

Field Test: 2022 Norco Range C1 - The Pedal Friendly 'Downhill' Bike
The lower link pivots around the BB, right? That's a cool design but seems like a real potential maintenance hassle. I've owned and loved 2 Norcos, but found them hard to live with occasionally. Stuff like cable routing, PF92 BBs and chain slap pads were not my fave, though Range seems to have the latter sorted. Good thing the important things (geo and suspension) are so dialed.

An In-Depth Look at the Canyon GeoBend Concept with the Industrial Designer Marvin Henschel
The non-triangular rear end would reduce chain slap I suppose. Though I’d guess it’s mainly an aesthetic choice; it highlights the lack of a bulky rear cluster and derailleur. Definitely a cool looking bike, though as a taller fellow I’m with you in wanting variable CS and HT options. And if you do that you kinda lose a lot of the advantages of the modular build I’d think.

7 Custom World Champs Commencal Supremes
Williamson is riding around on NON-PERSONALIZED TIRES like a damn peasant. Unacceptable.

Review: Ion Rascal Select Boa Shoes
@gabriel-mission9: I agree, but I would also strongly suggest anyone with a Superdeluxe that doesn't love it send it off for custom tuning by Vorsprung. Much cheaper than buying a new "upgraded" shock, and in my experience the results are actually better.

Shoe looks fine, what can you tell us about the Transition Spire?

Round Up: Fresh DH Bikes for the Second Half of the Season
So are Trek, Canyon and Specialized riders all running DHR2s front and rear? Blacked out for Trek and Spesh of course! It's an awesome and classic tire I'm just surprised there's such a consensus on the DHR2, no blacked out DHFs or Assegais or Dissectors (Troy's signature!) in sight....
