Commencal Unveils 2021 Meta AM 29
@shredb4dead: I've been also looking forward for the new Clash, and giving it 29 170mm fork. The new Meta also looks great but after riding my buddies 27,5 I want some of that nimbleness too :D

Review: TRP's New DH-R EVO Brakes
@fedfox: does the HC3 fix the issue with levers not snapping back? I was looking at these previously but they are bit pricey but if they fix this issue its probably worth it.

Review: TRP's New DH-R EVO Brakes
@pakleni: yes, I have MT7 for 2nd year now. Already replaced one lever as the retaining spring broke completely (the whole lever is needed and it is not cheap). Now the other lever has developed serious play and is rattling all over. Looking for the day it breaks suddenly in high speed section and when I grab the brake there will be no lever to pull on (that's how it happened on the first one). Also the plastic on the lever body is complete bullshit for the price, especially the plastic bleed screw which screws into plastic. Yes, stripping that is user error, but it takes such a minimal torque to strip it, it just feels like bad engineering. Also, the lever distance adjusters are crap, either they are too lose and screw out during riding or they are too tight and the plastic part which you turn is just slipping on the screw and the screw itself is not moving. Overall, the breaks are great, lots of power, great modulation and consistency, but for the price the plastic feels and behaves super cheap and the lever should not get loose after a year of riding.

Rychleby are the best, great trail but above all the beautiful nature around you is what I like the most there. But please, use kilometers for distance, we are not some stone age nation...(despite all the stones at Rychleby trails ;-) )

So, you are sold on the bike or marketing?

Spotted: Prototype Specialized Enduro? - Crankworx Whistler 2019
Hard say from these shots, but I'd be worried about limited seat post lenghts due to shock placement. Hope I'm wrong!

Review: Rocky Mountain Altitude Alloy 30
Yeah, sounds like a great idea to me, kinda wish I had switch on my Stumpjumper that would make it more progressive. Not something to change immediately, but can be used to adapt the bike to weight and riding style, especially useful on these garbage shocks with no tunning options other than air.

Behind the Numbers: Specialized Stumpjumper EVO 29 Suspension Analysis
@Lokirides: that's actually what I'm debating at the moment, the DVO topaz i have now is great but the sweetspot for my weight and riding is not there, so I was thinking of picking up longer stroke CC air. I'm already 160 in the front. The bike is great, bit short for me but otherwise crazily capable and fun. Everything from backyard trail, long xc rides or DH lines in park. But putting yet more money towards trying to fix it or just buying new bike .... But I think you just broke me xD Thanks for the tips!
