Race Photo Epic - Stellenbosch World Cup XCO
True, but this course was very technical in comparison with the next rounds. Maybe a better starting spot will make the biggest difference. With the new concept of determining start place, i think -hope- Mathieu has a good chance of doing very good. CX and fast starts etc ... .

Canyon's Prototype Cross-Country Weapon - Stellenbosch World Cup XCO
@shaked: That's how I do it. I have the current Canyon Lux. I've put a 120mm fork on it, decent tires and a dropper. Result is a bike that covers a lot of terrain. But I agree, once it gets rough AND steep, it's not ideal. @mikelevy: In the article you make it sound like the current Lux is a so-so bike. (a massive departure) In what way? - Boost? (yay, a spectacular influence on riding. not) - Different shock position? I will be very surprised if the comming reviews of the bike mention a big difference in the already very smooth current Lux. - second bottle cage: 2 full bottles will influence the handling of a bike. Racers don't wear backpacks, but we normal people do if we go for a long ride. - Updated geometry: probably a small 1° slacker headtube ( I really hope so) - It will be lighter, no doubt, but the current Lux is already very easily built under 11kg or 24,25lbs. No doubt it will be a better bike, but 'the massive departure' part is IMO a bit strong.

Canyon's Prototype Cross-Country Weapon - Stellenbosch World Cup XCO
@jclnv: "She's lovely and super strong but man is she a pain in the ass princess with the blame game etc." How can you know? Something you've heard? About the CX-crash: you make it sound as it was her fault. Thing's like that happen in racing. You can also 'blame' Neff for trying to surpass Prevot on that off-camber section. Last thing: ever had a lung collapse? Hurts like a mthf and screaming will be heard.

Canyon's Prototype Cross-Country Weapon - Stellenbosch World Cup XCO
@Eduspec: WC XCO yes they did. Very much so, but not with a sponsored team or riders that rode in to prizes. So they remained a bit under the radar. WC XCM: yes they do for many years, very succesfull (Alban Lakata & Sally Bigham as prime examples)

Ride More, Think Less - Opinion
'And then at some point people are getting children... ' :-) Very good post ! I never had a better bike than the bike I have right now. I also never had so little time to ride. 2 little kids and work (and house construction). What I read between the lines in this article is in fact: Don't be the guy with an expensive bike that never rides, but instead embrace the anarchy and don't let the fear of bodily harm spoil the fun. You make it seem like it's a choice (and in a way it is). But most normal people don't have the freedom to just make choices like that. There are (a few) more important things in life than biking imo.

Pole Bicycles Announces New CNC-Machined 'Machine' - Press Release
@WAKIdesigns: Aren't you a little bit too pessimistic? You have very good arguments, but it's a good thing Pole puts the issue on the table is it not? I for example never thought about the footprint of carbon. Now I do.

Staff Rides - Mike Levy's Rocky Mountain Element
@bohns1: Mike doens't like it. But it doesn't bother me, infact I like it. Before buying the eagle, I would try it. It can save you a lot of money.

Point: E-Bikes Are Good for the Sport
Exactly ! I don't bother that much about the discussion. I just think that the 250W is much too high imo.(depends on your weight off course). An extra 250W is a lot if your goal is just to 'assist' someone with pedaling. (unless he/she is really heavy)
