Round Up: Custom Setup Tricks from World Cup & EWS Races
A pedal cage on a downhill bike still makes sense as it protects the cleat mechanism to some extent. Whether this is relevant is probably up to the individual rider though. Another reason is the cage will help you orient the pedal in the correct position more easily. It´ll also help in those situations where you accidentally unclipped or couldn´t get clipped in fast enough for the next section. Again, i don´t know how relevant those are to a pro rider, but i have tried non caged clips on a dh bike and liked them a lot. Still went with the caged variant on my own bike. Anothert reason i can think of, although i do not know if this applies to the HT lineup, is that different pedals have different spacing from the crank. Especially with more robust downhill shoes this has caused some issues for me on certain pedals, so these may simply be the one Eliot felt were the best fit in that regard.

Spotted: Prototype High Pivot Full Suspension Bike in North Vancouver
@effeffeff: Yup, Erik is probably the first one to get most or their prototypes.

@landscapeben: YT would most likely be testing somewhere in europe. Keeping things under wraps is much easier here than anywhere in north america. They also have mostly european test riders as far as i know. I also would suspect YT to roll out a major suspension overhaul on their flagship downhill bike first, with the enduro adaptation following shortly after, given how streamlined and homogenous their whole portfolio is. Component spec also doesn´t exactly scream YT.

Review: 2021 Cube TWO15 HPC SLT - DH Bike Week
@TEAM-ROBOT: Ya mean with something like neat and tidy cable clips on the outside of a frame? Nah man, that sounds dumb.

Interview: Vali Höll - 'I Got So Many Offers, I Didn't Really Expect That People Would be Interested In Me'
You mean that drawing of a rocket? It´s clearly a rocket. You know, cause she´s so fast and all.

@wingguy: I also somehow doubt it was Atherton Racing. Rachel is known to love mentoring the younger girls and honestly what more could you want as a young female athlete? I doubt she would have turned that offer down. I also doubt the Athertons have the money to make her an apropriate offer at this point in time. They already have two highly paid athletes on their roster after all. Commencal isn´t really known for a specific team structure though. Besides the bike being ridden by a lot of successful riders, they do not have too much to show, whereas the Syndicate, Nukeproof or Canyon all have loads of experience alongside long standing team structures and very involved and experienced mentors/managers in Peaty, Cathy, Paigey and Fabien. Commencal also always seems kinda french focused. Not sure they are the type of team a non french person would desire above all else. Syndicate, Specialized or Canyon seem the most likely to me, albeit i cannot see why she would ever turn down an offer from the Syndicate.

A Closer Look at Devinci's Experimental High Pivot Wilson
According to Devinci, this design was never intended to be released to the public and is only a testbed to see what could be. So i wouldn´t hold my breath for it.
