First Look: Manitou's 180mm Mezzer Pro Fork and Mara Pro Shock - Garda Trentino 2019
@ronufoh: "I get why you have to benchmark the competition when developing new product, but we would have preferred a 2.2kg fork with a CSU interface that creaks 75% less" Your quote needed to be repeated. This, so much this! Fork mfrs, please add in a few grams and make crowns that last at least a year. Please? Pretty please?

Women's Slopestyle Tour Partners with 2019 FMBA Series
Sick! Glad to see the Sugar Showdown as part of this. The women's jump scene at Duthie Hill is off the hook.

Review: e*thirteen's Updated LG1R Carbon Cranks
@qreative-bicycle: I find the opposite. Heavy bikes tend to be WAY more fun that super light ones. And I do love to pedal.

Review: e*thirteen's Updated LG1R Carbon Cranks
Anyone who runs carbon cranks: 1) has more money than sense 2) is under 170 lbs and is easy on gear or 3) is an xc racer weight weenie. I've got nothing against any of those three, but it ain't me. I've got a fundamental problem with these flyweight reviewers on stuff like carbon cranks. They're known far and wide by bigger riders who go hard to fail way too often. Carbon cranks: never again. Wrong material for the application since bonding in aluminum inserts is problematic.

Race Face Announces New Next SL Crankset
I'd never buy light carbon cranks at any price. eeWings are stupid expensive, but at least they're usable.

The Explainer: What's the Deal with Linkage Forks?
They're also at a 3:1 ratio, (or whatever the actual ratio is), so the bushings and/or seals in the linkage fork have 1/3 the friction, even before bending and side loading are factored in. I hope they make this product work, and can carve out a market for these that sticks around. Options are cool to have.

Video: Syndicate Pit Gibberish - Why Would You Run a Smaller Rear Rotor?
@DRomy: What you said. FFS, this is known by pretty much anyone who's ever paid attention to their bike. Smaller rear is for better modulation and the fact that you need much more power on the front before the wheel locks. Weight shifting forward creates more grip on front. I'm giving Marshy the benefit of the doubt here, but he's coming across as clueless. Sure at WC DH speeds, skidding and modulation might not be an issue, and roasting the rear brake surely is a problem. But riding wet slimy tech, trail riding, not blowing up your local trails, modulation makes a difference. He should know this.

Staff Rides: Levy's Giant Trance - A Lot of Pivots, Not Much Travel
@BenPea: "And then he says it's dangerous going down chutes" Impossible to feel safe on some of the best Squamish trails. That's why they're so fan-freakin-tastic. But yah, even more sketch on steeper HA bike.
