Video: Evo Bike Park's New Line Might be Europe's Best Flow Line
The jumps look similar in size to A-Line. Could anyone who has ridden both compare them please? @tomadigio? And Evo is OK on a 150-160mm trail bike I assume? A few friends have ridden Dignes but not Evo I think. Could be a nice one to include in an autumn road trip this year. :)

Where's the New XTR? 8 Questions With Nick Murdick, Shimano MTB Product Manager
For a 2017 non-Boost Transition Patrol the M9020 crank (168mm Q-factor) is the one to go for, right? And will the new XTR chainring work fine with a 10 speed chain? Hopefully Wolftooth will come out with oval rings for the new XTR too.

Video: EWS Practice Begins in Whistler - The Privateer Episode 10
I don't follow racing at all but have watched all of these and enjoyed the story more than I thought I would. Part of me thinks that Adam just needs more confidence generally, he just seems a little unsure of himself most of the time. I guess a good race would boost that. Then again he does have some serious balls to be riding at race pace in Fox Enduro kneepads.

Review: Fidlock's Bottle Twist Uses Magnets to Hold Your Water Bottle
The Monkii V Cage is a good alternative to the Fidlock & Fabtic systems. £18/$23, 36g, works with any bottle and 100% secure in my experience.

I already have to run more B-tension than ideal to make a 11-36 work with my Saint/Zee on three different 150-155mm bikes. Wouldn't like to try it on a bigger cassette personally.

Lots of vertical (French/Swiss/Italian alpine lifts) on my Next SLs at 80kg (175lbs) and they developed some play at the crank bolt insert after two 8-month seasons. Same now on the replacement Next SL G4s after another 8 months. I'm switching to the new XTR unless I can get a warranty for some Next R or SixC.

My Saint mech was getting old and wobbly so I switched my old spare Zee back on last week. I can tell no difference between them whatsoever when I have switched both ways. Saint shifter does make a noticeable difference over the Zee though. I'm now running the exact same drivetrain as listed in this article (cranks, mech, shifter, cassette, even pedals ...spooky) but on 27.5 wheels. I don't hammer the pedals on the way down and I'm fairly fit so 30/11-36 10 speed works for me. If I cared about riding flat roads faster on the way to the trails then I'd want an extra gear at the top end. My Next SLs do have some play in them again at the crank bolt interface (1 year after warranty). If I don't get another warranty replacement then I'm switching to the new XTRs.

Video: Hans No Way Rey & Flying Brian Lopes Tackle Livigno's Highest Trails
Livigno/etc is on my list for September. Question for locals: for one day riding what trails should we hit for a mix of flow & tech, park & natural? Really worth doing this featured circuit? Most of it looked flowy but not too exciting.
