Propain Releases New Full Suspension Kids Bike With Multiple Wheel Size Options
Nice, but 12.3 kg? Weight should also be scaled down to their size and strength. Below 10kg would be great.

Whyte S-150 Carbon RS - Review
Possibly another good reason to mount calipers behind the fork lower: you won't rip off the screws holding them on your fork, hence you'll stay alive and won't care about agility of your bike at all.

Enduro World Series Round 5, Millau: Day 1 Photo Epic
@davetrumpore: I'm just trying to make a comparison as fair as possible. You seemed to be concerned by fairness in racing and so rightfully. If I'm totally in favor of a single run of training, it should be better done, and riders should have a window when to start on which track. It was the very same mess in Madeira, particularly on day 1. With the difference it was possible to have a second run if people had the fitness for that. Not me. Also if a venue is meant to host an EWS it should not be in the local series the year before.

@davetrumpore: it's really surprising that you don't understand my point about Rotorua. For you, the rain negates local advantage. I am in no way saying the rain had no impact. It obviously had the biggest of impacts. That is why I said "those not affected by the rain". I think that's pretty clear that I am talking about a subgroup. I'm not saying Wyn won against Rude but rather Wyn won against those who had similar conditions. And in this group with similar conditions (those who've been a bit more lucky with the weather) then local advantage oviously played a huge role with 3 Kiwis on the podium. I hope you understood me this time. And if not, I try something else. What if we substitute "local advantage" by "cheating". DISCLAIMER : I AM IN NO WAY SUGGESTING OR SUPPOSING ANYBODY HAS BEEN CHEATING (clear?) Case 1: the French cheated in Millau Case 2: It rained in Rotorua. And the Kiwis cheated. But it doesn't matter because it rained first. Do you finally see what I mean? Same same. Local advantage = local advantage.

@davetrumpore: I don't see the difference: local advantage is local advantage. But french local advantage is bad and nz local advantage is cool?

Singing in the Rain: Vallnord DH World Cup 2017 Trackwalk - Photo Epic
@atrokz: Oops, I saw Vergier in 5th. Anyway, it doesn't make a huge difference. As far as I know there were only 5 29ers, and only 2 (3?) in the hands of top 10 riders (Minnaar, Vergier and one may count Moir). So it's a significant bias. In any case those sample size are too small to highlight such small (expected) differences. The only trend, or semi-conclusion: 29ers weren't a disadvantage on that track. As for Hart, dunno. He won the BSD in Fort Bill on the 29ers against a WC field and had a shit result on the same track on the same bike during the WC.

@davetrumpore: Did you actually read my comment before answering? "Those not affected by the rain"
