Final Results from the Maribor DH World Cup 2021
What about Junior Women? I was on the track and Phoebe Gale was listed as DNS on the live timing and apparently she was late for her start (as I heard). Izabela Yankova was at first place and we were celebrating already, thinking she won. Don't get me wrong, a win is a win, Phoebe got down faster, but it was like 4-5 minutes after Sophie started. So what actually happened? Phoebe was allowed to race even if she was late for her start? Because she's a factory rider? I highly doubt any other non-factory girl would be allowed to start in this case. Still, a second place is a great success, but it was disappointing to see that happen...

10 Kits for Plus Size Mountain Bikers - Men’s Edition
Same thing. I'm not that skinny, but I'm tall (195cm) with long legs and arms. Currently riding with ION pants (the longer version) and it is better than most of other brands, but the other problem is too short sleeves on the long-sleeved jerseys I ride all year long. I have two jerseys that are ok-ish (one ION and one Dakine), but still would prefer a little longer than that, so when in attack position (or seated) my wrists stay covered...

First Ride: RockShox's New Zeb Fork
I really hope those two 38 forks would bring down Mezzer's price even more so I can upgrade my Mattoc Pro!

Pinkbike Poll: Where Do You Shop for Bike Parts?
Some of my requests in the largest bike shop we have: - Shimano 180mm XT center lock rotor? - No, only 160. - Do you have maxxis dhf 27.5? - We don't have them at the moment and don't know when will. Probably somewhere in August. - Do you have Shimano brake pads? - No, we have these shiny orange pads from our "own" brand. - I need the concentrate from MucOff, it's listed on your site. - We don't have it, we only have the pre-mixed one. - You're authorized Manitou spare parts supplier (they are not anymore), do you have the wiper seals for Mattoc? - We can order them, it would be 2 weeks. At least I was able to get tubeless tape, which should come with 4 stickers according to the box, but someone just got them out, I guess. And a ceramic chain lube. I do all the service and repairs on my own now. Working on the rims is the only thing I delegate to a local service, but not really satisfied with the quality, so I will try another service next time. It probably takes me 2-3 times more time to finish a job, but I think the result is better than what the LBS does.

Rose Unveils 2021 Root Miller & Ground Control Trail Bikes
Yes, I agree. I was looking at it from my own perspective of a tall guy. It gets progressively worse going up in frame size and dropper post length, but that's valid for most of the bikes. That's why I like and think Norco is doing it right.

Rose Unveils 2021 Root Miller & Ground Control Trail Bikes
Year 2017 called, wants its geo back. Specs are quite good for the price, but that's all, unfortunately. Reach is not that bad, though. They've missed the chance to have a killer bike. Even just a steeper seat angle would make it much more appealing. They even have a nice configurator with component options. Not that bad to be honest. Not everyone needs the lowest-longest-slackest bike. Comparable to Canyon Spectral in fact.

Review: Ion K-Traze Amp Zip Knee Pads
Ah, this must be due to the additional plastic layer on top of the SAS-TEC pad. I have the old K-Pact Zip and the pad is removable, but has no hard layer.
