Rachel Atherton Out of Les Gets World Cup with Ruptured Achilles Tendon
Those suggesting she's done... 1) She's light. Comparing Rachel to an NFL or NBA player isn't really apples to apples. This will help the healing process. 2) Despite this injury occuring on a bike, bikes aren't inherently hard on this tendon the way cutting/sprinting/basketball/football is. 3) She's got the boys and girls at Red Bull behind her. This is a big asset when it comes to injury. She'll be back. Probably with some gnarly footwear to go with it. But she'll be back. First world cup or bust.

Video & Race Report: Max Leyen & Jennifer McHugh Win North American EWS Continental in Revelstoke, BC
Cool to see some common sense, letting riders pedal to each stage sans helmet so they can pick the helmet that will most benefit them going downhill.

Behind the Numbers: Specialized Stumpjumper EVO 29 Suspension Analysis
FWIW, Linkagedesign has a very different leverage ratio curve listed. Yes, its for the non-evo but it should be very close (same travel, same kinematics layout). They see it going from 3.1-2.65 - simple math shows a 2.76 overall.

Review: 2019 Santa Cruz Megatower - Stiff & Solid, But Not That Sensitive
@mikekazimer: Just to clarify - when I suggest looking at a forces graph, I'm suggesting one look at it where in theory both the coil and air would give the rider the same amount of sag. Just wanted to be clear this is an apples to apples comparison.

Review: 2019 Santa Cruz Megatower - Stiff & Solid, But Not That Sensitive
I mean this with all due respect but this review really lacks the substance it should have considering this is one of the most sought after bikes of 2019 and this is the largest mountain bike website in the world. I've "professionally" reviewed product at "the other" big mountain bike website, so I do think my lens on this topic is fairly well honed. First and foremost, you had issues with getting the suspension to work to your liking but didn't dig into the "why" behind the problem. I am not going to dig up kinematics of the Bronson, a bike you liked, because you should have. What is different? Why is one great and the other not? Suspension tune? Pedal kickback? Antisquat values? Second, "feels rough" is a worthy statement but did you do anything objective to see if you are riding faster? If speeds are higher, often suspension/bike feels different. Sometimes you can tell you are faster. Sometimes you need a watch. Third, your comments around a coil are interesting. Having tested the Nomad extensively, I'd argue air provides the most sensitivity but coil provides the most support. I think you'd actually find coil to make the bike even more sporty, not less. In sum this reads like a Joey review of the product. Not a pro-level "this is my career" level review. Do better. You owe that to your audience, and to Santa Cruz.

Where did I miss Vorpsrung doing an air spring where you can adjust the volume of the negative chamber?

Field Test: Pivot Firebird 29
Good news is you don't have to spend 1/2 as much to get a bike that is equally as capable. Hell, you can spend around $3500 and end up on something that will be just as fast. Let the boutique brands and their import drinking riders exist. I'll be over here with a Canyon/YT/Transition/Specialized Evo/_______ having just as much fun, riding just as fast and shotgunning PBRs. Oh, and I used to test bikes at a different mountain bike website. Don't tell anyone but bottom end 12 speed is just as fast as the blingy top shelf stuff. "Cheap" code brakes stop just as fast and Fox's GRIP 1 damper is so good I can't tell a difference for how I ride... Anyway, good luck car shopping. Maybe spend $6K on a used hatchback and then the remaining $3.5K on a Canyon Torque or something. Something to think about ;)

Fox Float X2 205mm x 60mm Kashima

$400 USD
For a Transition BIkes Sentinel or anything that fits this dimension. Yes, this is 2.5mm longer stroke than stock. It works without problem on the carbon model. Not sure on alloy, buyer has to check. You can get it lengthened or shortened by Fox or a tuning facility to fit other bikes. Barely used. Selling because I'm going to a different bike. Thanks!
