Top Stories from CyclingTips: Mathieu VDP’s Insane Amstel Gold, Shimano GRX, T47 Threaded BBs & More
I think we have 12 speed cassettes to thank for the long derailleurs. Especially SRAM went crazy with derailleur length. Shimano is doing better since the introduction of Shadow derailleurs.

6 Extra-Long-Travel Single Crown Bikes - Garda Trentino 2018
@fr3er1d3r: headtube angles of 'progressive' enduro bikes are approaching 63 degrees. 64 to 65 is standard. I would say that the weight and seattube angles are the only differing factors nowadays.

I love how at 1:35 the dog is like "Come on you snail! My granddog is faster than you!" (Yes, the riding is better than mine, but the dog just goes Speedy Gonzales on that trail!)

Video: How Do the Enduro Pros Set Up Their Pedals?
@H3RESQ: So do I, but I have to be honest about some of the advantages of clipless. (The disadvantages become clear when you want to put your feet in another position, bail before a crash or clip in 2 feet before a descent standing in a difficult and unsteady position...)

Video: How Do the Enduro Pros Set Up Their Pedals?
@H3RESQ: I know, but not in the same way and with the same efficiency as with clipless pedals. You lose some energy on flats because you have to put pressure on the pins and have to pull at an angle.

Review: DT Swiss F535 One Fork
@Marcencinitas: that's right, but of it were me, I would wait for the Mezzer. Also, there are more competitive forks with better damping, lower prices and (when you account for the weight of the upgrades) less weight. Don't get me wrong, the proposed fork and upgrade path would provide you with great suspension. I just find spending $1200 on a fork a ridiculous amount. That says nothing on how much money that is for someone else or whether it is worth it for them.

@I-SmacK-I: making tough climbs is easier, since you can use both legs at the same time (pushing and pulling). With flats you can only use one pedal effectively at the same time. When I switched from clipless to flats, I had far more difficulty in reaching the top of tough climbs.

Video: Muc-Off Launches Bike Specific Pressure Washer
Although it looks like a nice piece of quality kit if you live next to the trail(s), it lacks a 12V power connector and reservoir for use elsewhere. Also, it is definitely not the first pressure washer for bikes (although they might play with the definition of 'high pressy' to support the claim).

Stan's NoTubes Announces New Flow EX3 Rims & Wheelsets
@SirLapLack: I guess it doesn't deal so well with higher temperatures then. Here in the Netherlands it's supposed to last much longer, but temperatures average around 5 degrees Celsius (41 F) in the winter and 20 (68 F) in the summer.
