Video Highlights: Air DH - Crankworx Whistler 2018
For such a fast race there seemed to be very little footage of the riders actually going fast. So much slo-mo of scrubs and whips, which, while making for a sick edit, don't really show how fast or wild the riders really are going.

Forbidden Bike Company's High Pivot Trail Bike - Crankworx Whistler 2018
By moving where the chain on the idler sits relative to the single pivot you can tweak the antisquat values. I believe there has been some of the DH bike manufacturers playing around with idler positions for different WC DH tracks, this is mostly anti-squat tweaking.

Read this article last night and it helped clear up a lot of the marketing speak surrounding rear suspension. https://www.bikeradar.com/mtb/gear/article/ultimate-guide-to-mountain-bike-rear-suspension-systems-50849/

5 Hardtails With Dropper Posts - Albstadt World Cup XC
A lightweight carbon chain guide weighs a couple of grams. A dropped chain can lose you many spots in a tight race. It's a risk vs reward kinda thing.

Everything You Need to Know About Norco's New DH Bike
This is the second time in as many days as I've seen this posted on PinkBike. Unless I'm missing something their head quarters are in Port Coquitlam. If this is done intentionally to try and make it seem like they are on the North Shore then it seems a bit poor for something so easily proved to be incorrect.

RockShox Boxxer World Cup - First Ride
It does seem a bit strange, slacker headtube == more trail, bigger wheel == more trail, bigger offset == less trail? If you're running big wheels and slack headtubes for stability at speed why not go all the way and run a shorter offset?

What the Heck is a Down-Country Bike? - Opinion
@RBWebb: +1 for the phantom, released in 2015 with a 68 degree head angle, 75 degree seat angle, clearance for 2.5" rubber and a 485mm reach in the XL. Have raced short-course and marathon xc, north shore/squamish/whistler gnar and bike park all on the same build.

@Three6ty: @Three6ty: The main copy on the hightower product page mentions a high/low flip chip to help adjust geometry. The 27.5+ build kit does come with a 150mm fork (vs 140mm for the 29") to help keep the HA at 67 degrees. You could always run 150mm in both 29 and 27.5?

Isn't that what the Hightower (non-lt) is? It's a 135mm 29er/27.5+ bike that would seem to fit your requirements
