First Ride: 2021 Commencal Meta TR - Is Mini-Enduro a Thing?
@just6979: dude, I´m not in any way arguing against 140+ travel bikes. My main bike is Meta a AM. But there´s a place for shorter travel bikes and there are people buying them, that´s why I think leaving this segment open like that is a weird decision on Commencals side, especially considering how many bikes they have to chose from in the upper travel range

First Ride: 2021 Commencal Meta TR - Is Mini-Enduro a Thing?
@just6979: not sure if it´s a thing everywhere but I see a lot of people who realized they didn´t need 140+mm of travel and DH tires to ride these flowtrails abominations that pop up at every corner and are now buying lighter bikes more suited to their type of riding. The People who currently buy a YT Izzo, an Evil the following or something along those lines. Absolutely not interested in racing anything but very interested to be on a bike the whole day, covering quite a bit of mileage and riding the mostly not so difficult trails and hiking paths their area offers. Or people like me who might own and race enduro bikes but would sometimes like to have something they can actually push to the edge of it´s abilities, even though that might only be Levy and I

There´s definitely a hole in their line up. Some lighter XC/trail thingy in the 120mm range would be a good addition. Also the Meta TR is now well in enduro territory, there´s apparently a new AM coming next week, which would need to be a absolute monster of a bike to remain relevant besides the TR. As of now I would seriously consider switching to a TR instead of my current AM

@Geochemistry: I´ve owned two Meta AM, it´s heavy but I love it nonetheless. It´s no XC-racer and never will be, but it climbs absolutely fine. weight isn´t everything, not even while climbing

Spotted: Is This a New Specialized Status?
@DavidGuerra: because they built this awesome and interesting DH bike and won´t let us play with it. In reality they built some questionable bikes with questionable "standards" over the years, I think a few people have resentments because of that

MicroSHIFT's New 10-Speed Advent X Drivetrain is Only $167 - Pond Beaver 2020 (Updated with Video)
some of the German online shops carry microShift stuff, you might need to search around a bit but I think you should find what you need. Bike24 and Bike-components could be a good start

German XC Racer Helen Grobert Banned for 4 Years After Testing Positive for Testosterone
Although it wasn´t official, it was already known she tested positive. I was surprised to read this, not because it was news but because it wasn´t. I knew about this since, well, about June 2018. There were no health reasons, she knew what was coming for her. This is a proper 4 year ban, not a slap on the wrist, and probably well deserved I may add. On a note this took so long because it went through the appeal, the testing itself was much quicker.

New Zealand Health Minister Criticized for Mountain Biking During Lockdown
@beast-from-the-east: The not driving there part? None, just a bit strange to drive 2km from your house to ride, isn´t it? The "don´t do anything stupid"-part is just down to it being a bad time to be in need of the medical system, both for your own and others sake
