Podcast: Eddie Masters on His Approach to Life, His 2018 Season & More
Someone has to get Ratty to QT to film some epic clips with Eddie. Maybe even a 50to01/ Vanzacs combination??

Video: Vorsprung on Understanding Advanced Bike Geometry - Part 2
Hi Steve, after spending a fair bit of time on the older patrols, have you had a chance to ride the 2018/19 patrols where they changed the geometry a fair bit, and if so what were your thoughts on the differences?

Pinkbike Awards: Athlete of the Year Winner
@Flowcheckers: maybe this is the incentive Sam needs to show up to a couple DH WC events next year. See if he can replicate what Martin pulled off this year!

Field Test: Yeti SB130
@mikekazimer: right you are I didn’t pay enough attention to your comment (thought you said his height was 5’11). I agree 460 reach is long for a medium it is the same as my current large Knolly Warden however standover height, top tube, seat tube lengths are all much more in comparison to the large size Yeti which I guess is the big difference over the last 3-4 years. Where the reach on bikes was less 3-4 years ago but most builds came with 65mm stems now you have greater reach figures and 35mm stems. Obviously there’s more to it than just that with longer wheelbase’s 29” wheels and steeper seat angles for myself at 183cm the large would be my go to with a short stem on the yeti. When however you look at something like the mondraker foxy even though I’m still in the large size range according to them the geometry figures for that bike would have me looking at a medium.

@mikekazimer: actually at those heights Sarah is just in the medium size bracket by mm and Daniel is just in the large size bracket by mm. Out of interest were they both using the same stem or swapping between each rider. Would be real interesting to see how Daniel would find the large with a 35mm stem as a comparison.

Big height difference between Sarah & Daniel would be good if it was noted as part of the review particularly with Sarah referencing reach being more in line with previous large sized bikes. I currently ride a large Knolly Warden which has a reach of 460 and I fit it well, would not be wanting a medium. At 183cm tall (with riding shoes on) I am in the large size in the yeti website so would assume Yeti intends for me to ride a large. On current bike I have a 50mm stem so assume with a 35mm stem on a yeti sb130 or SB150 that would make the reach almost identical. As bikes are so costly now, the last thing you would want is to spend all that $$’s and realise you got the wrong size. There was a fair bit of debate on the SB150 review with reviewers stating there preference been choosing on reach figures rather than manufacturers size charts. Not sure I agree with this but think all bike companies could benifit from sizing guides that took more into account than just overall height. Maybe a calculator that you entered in your height, inseam, torso and arm length before recommending a frame size? For the price your expected to pay it would definitely give more confidence on clicking buy!!
