MET Roam Helmet - Review
Any info on sizing? I'm kind of in between sizes at 58.5cm. Officially I should opt for the large one but wonder if the medium might fit as well. And is the MIPS Version a bit smaller due to the MIPS layer within the same shell? Thanks!

Mondraker Dune - Review
people are too focused on component spec - carbon wheels - even on the ews most people don't ride them. There no relevant benefit, they are just more expensive - cheaper version of SRAMs 1x11 - doesn't really make a difference either although I'd expect to see eagle for 2018 - Guide RSC - I would kick any Guide brakes off my bike There really are other things that are relevant. For example, it's great to see the 2018 Foxy Carbon features tube-in-tube design to prevent noise and ease installation - that's the point when Trek Slash owners get jealous, not those carbon rims.

BikeYoke Revive Dropper Post - Review
Sums my own experience up pretty well. I've been on the 185mm version since the day it's out and it moves like butter, absolutely flawless and precise function. Much better than my Reverb (which also developed that typical 5-10mm movement from the top position).

Fail Of The Month - October
I wonder if any pre-selection is done for this contest. #1, 2, 3 and 4 were all pretty crappy, and I think I've already seen #5 in this contest #6 was kind of spectacular thank god for #7 and #8, both have that little extra, whether it be the siren or that unique way of tackling a plank bridge

Poll - How Clean is EWS Racing?
@WAKIdesigns: as it is my job to deal with that stuff on a daily basis as a (soon to be) urologist, I might just give you the simple advice: don't do TRT. I would not consider it myself in the foreseeable future, maybe it's different when I'm 60 and overweight but now: 100% not knowing the scientific literature. On the topic: the big difference between road racing / cross-country skiing /etc and Enduro is that your result in the first named sports are mostly dependent on your endurance, which can be dramatically increased by doping. Doping might help you a bit in Enduro (just as it does in Soccer eg) but not to a point where I'd say it's necessary to cheat to win. I doubt Sam Hill cheated. And who told you that nonsense about extremely high caffeine doses? cmon...

Results: Red Bull Hardline 2017
you've got to be kidding me. The carnage there almost exceeds Rampage. Glad to see that at least the finalists got down in one piece, even though between Kaos finish line jump and Adam hugging that tree there were a hundred times when you thought they wouldn't.

Mondraker Bikes Coming to the US
@hamncheez: I wonder where you have that information from. It's basically nowhere to be found on the internet. Yes, Astro makes frames that look pretty similar on the first look. However, they could be a copy (/ripoff) of Mondrakers design. Anyway, the design is pretty straightforward, no more links than lots of other designs and the rear triangle is a single piece. Mastermind for the frame development is/was Cesar Rojo, that's for sure.

MRP's Boost Solution and New Ramp Control Cartridge - Interbike 2017
that boost kit is quite nice, however, I'll rather opt for the simpler available versions with just the right side endcap being replaced. Downside is that you need to redish your wheel 5mm (spoke lenght change is below 1mm, so that's not an issue), benefit is that the spoke angles are almost symmetrical then, which is beneficial for the overall disc stiffness and durability.
