Unno Bikes Creator Cesar Rojo on The Downtime Podcast
I'm going to disagree on this point. He has a fundamental understanding of geometry like most other designers / Engineers. Similar to the issues suspension companies have with defining what architectures contribute to better damper design and what is needed to achieve the best valving. Telescoping forks really constrain the development pathway forward. "Long bike doing good" - misses all the critical details; head angle, reach, chainstay, fork offset, stem length, rear kinematics....I'm not buying his opinion.

Martin Maes' GT Force: EWS Whistler - Crankworx Whistler 2018
Oh god, all these guys are running damn near the same thing. It's not the bike, it's the rider.... Rim width made me .00000001s slower last year, damn.

Bike Check: Keegan Wright's Not-So-Secret Devinci Spartan 29 - EWS Whistler 2018
That's pretty much how I run them. While descending my forearms, wrist, hands and fingers created a flat plane from my chest to the lever. Way less fatigue and control. Look at it this way, how would you feel strongest/most comfortable when doing a push up using a bar perpendicular to your body...it's that same as being on a bike but everything is rotated up from horizontal. Note, you may need to mess with your reach adjust.

Gwin's Not Racing MSA, But He is Training on a 29" YT Tues
@tttyyler: The sooner your recognize that your hard core sport is a fashion industry, well, the sooner you'll understand that the marketing, hype and prices are are inflated. These guys can ride any bike fast, regardless.

Review: Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt Carbon 70
@jclnv: Yeah, that's the dumbest statement of the day. The answer you're looking for is geometry. Wheel size is secondary i.e 29er geo is still not correct and that's why you see 27.5 bikes ruling the podiums. So no, 29ers are not better. Ride both and you'll quickly discover vague steering with 29ers and momentum and stability when/where you might not want it. why? Geometry

Review: Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt Carbon 70
@Adamrideshisbike: So, your saying the changes like SBG geometry or stumpy evo geo are for less skilled riders? I would argue that nearly all geo changes made in the past few years are with the intent to make a bike more stable. Doesn't necessarily mean that the bike is being built to suit people with less skill, it could be to make a pro rider that much faster...which doesn't mean less skill.

@paulhaysom: duh, you realize we can all put on fresh tires (might require a air compressor, tools and a Benjamin), but only sponsored riders go through tires regardless of condition.

@islandforlife: No, fresh tires don't make a difference unless they are abraded or compromised from previous use. Some would say that use tires roll better and are more compliant (wear and fatigue) but the practice of new tires is also a practice of wasting money.
