5 Things We Learned from Red Bull Rampage 2021
Still running the marz 66. Great fork. It has sticker saying not for freeride extreme or downhill use. On account of this I will skip rampage myself! One comment about the old stuff is that 1 1/8 just looks too skinny for a 170mm freeride fork (it's longer than my boxxer). I'm sure old 1.5 totems and 66 forks could have done the job with suitable frames at rampages gone by but maybe the riding progression was behind the equipment then. but not now clearly. Who will challenge Brandon?

Any good footage of his fort bill win? I would love to watch that. I think I've seen some of him absolutely steaming into the arena but that's it unfortunately

Pinkbike Poll: Would You Buy an Enduro Bike With a Dual-Crown Fork?
We all know the industry will iterate towards this in a couple of years. Specialized had it years ago but implemented it poorly. Geometry is allowing people to ride faster and people are just plain riding the nuts off bikes these days so enduro will just end up as light dh category. Enduro bikes will pedal moderately well. They'll have Between 170mm and 200mm travel to boot. Running old boxers on an old spesh enduro works fine for me after I took measures to lower the bb. The fork lenght was actually shorter than my marz 66 when in 170mm mode and I think generally the lenght is the thing that strains the head tube. It wont last for ever but it's ok for now and its a cheap old bike that flies...

First Look: 2021 Trek E-Caliber - A Motorized XC Machine
Are these not the ones where you can take the battery and motor out and you more or less have a normal bike. Ace! Think Lapierre do similar with more travel and also kinetics. Seems to tick a few boxes. I would never commit to spending all my money on an ebike
