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.

BikeYoke Revive 185 - Need a Little More Drop?
bullshit, easily 50% of all Rockshox Reverb users I know (>30 people) have this problem. It sucks because you can't solve it yourself but pay quite a bit on service. I plan to change to bikeyoke.
