Review: Magura's Lightweight MT8 SL Brakes
@SonofBovril: Agree. Was a big Shimano fan for many years but the wandering bite point on all their brakes, Saints, SLX, XT, etc... was a big turn off. Even worse in the cold weather. I think its a combination of slow flowing mineral oil (worse in the cold and on the back brake), and a far spread on their pads (nice for not rubbing though). Shimano's were cheap, reliable, easy to bleed, and powerful. I like an on/off feel to my brakes. But that wondering bite point almost sent me over the bars one too many times. For trail riding I went to Guides, have a lot of miles on them, and like them a lot. This year I swapped out the Saints for Codes on my DH rig but haven't ridden them yet. Oh yeah, the pad rattle on the Saints, even with non-finned pads, sounded like a loose headset.

Whiteface Mountain Bike Park Will Not Open for the 2020 Season
Maybe BETA could step in and coordinate some sort of epic loop both up and back down from the summit? All single track. I'm sure there would be people willing to help build it. There would be nothing else like it in the NE.

Whiteface Mountain Bike Park Will Not Open for the 2020 Season
We are hoping this is only a temporary setback. Mike and Elias and their team had made WF such a great place for us to ride. Nothing I've ridden yet compares to the fun and challenge of WF. What a mountain! No biking on Whiteface - such a loss.

Or, to shorten the review up just a bit... "The Spot's Ryve, performs like the XC bike it is."

Tech Briefing: Wheels, Enduro Bikes, Frame Protection & More - May 2020
I'd think about paying $29 for a good review on this bike. Come on PB lets have it. And a real review for an AM bike. Yeah, we know it goes dh, but can it climb steep tech?

Now Finished: Ask Us Anything - MTB Fitness Edition with Coaches Dee Tidwell, Jonny Thompson & Todd Schumlick
Why such a reluctance on the part of mountain bikers collectively to simply take what is already proven to work from sports that have far more R&D than us? It is no mystery as to what you need to do to acquire practical, explosive, injury preventing strength and power. What are collegiate level and pro level athletes doing in football, wrestling, boxing, MMA... Squats, dead lifts, rows, chins, presses, maybe some sprints/running. Build the raw power with those exercises then adapt them to mtb and gain endurance by doing guess what? Riding your mountain bike. Riding lots. Then eat well and sleep a lot. Its no secret. And no, silly bouncy balls or stretchy things aren't getting you anywhere unless you are starting out as a couch potato.
