Bike Check: Greg Minnaar's Norco Prototype DH Bike at Fort William World Cup
Altering the idler pulley's position to tweak the anti-squat = clever af. Patent that shit Norco, if you haven't already

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly: Pinkbike Editors' Favorite Shop Tools
@Lewisscott1524: They can replace your whole set of spanners AND pair of pliers, as well as your adjustable wrench. Plus the design of the grip means the tighter you hold the handle, the better the jaws grip. So much better than 'normal' adjustable wrenches, which can and do lose a vital mm or two of jaw grip in an instant, when you shift them slightly

Throwback Thursday: Sam Hill's Legendary 2007 Fort William World Champs Winning Run
That is Hugh Porter, who I believe still commentates track & road cycling for the Beeb. He is a legend, although so is Rob Warner and I know which one I prefer for MTB (hint: it isn't Mr Porter)

Saracen Launch New Mantra LSL Hardtails
Came here to say this. Zero need for a 510mm ST on a trail bike these days even if you're 6' 8". Even BrandX are knocking out 200mm droppers now, for £140. You can't trumpet the whole 'long low slack' thing if only two of those apply

Review: Akta's Trail Apparel & Protection Line
Specialized Demo Pro pants fit me well in a size L. I'm 6'4" with a 35" inseam. Try a pair on if you get the chance

Tech Tuesday: How & Why to Upgrade Your Pads and Rotors
No need for business cards. I always start out the same way, with loose-but-not-rattling bolts, but then rock the bike forwards using my weight, and with the brake lever pulled. The caliper settles into the position it 'wants' to be in. Then carefully ease off the forward push, and tighten bolts. Bongo.

Track Walk & Tech Randoms: Snowshoe DH World Cup 2022
@WestwardHo: Agreed. I have a T9 Butcher on the front of my Stumpy Evo. One of the best front tyres I've ever had

Spotted: SRAM is Testing Something (But It's Probably Not a Dual Caliper Brake)
@conoat: Nope. Neither sintered or organic pads 'lose power' unless a) you fail to bed them in properly and they glaze, or b) you burn through the pad material down to the backing plate. Most of the time, if your brakes feel like they are fading, it will be the brakes themselves, not the pads.
