Review: NX Eagle - SRAM's New Affordable 12-Speed Drivetrain
Sram realizes that their xd driver can never trickle down to the lower end and be a universal standard. They just saw Shimano release their brilliant new xtr system which has a huge future. So they release this big heavy cassette backpedaling from xd and this is brilliant how? You can already buy lighter Sunrace cassettes with this range. Why would I buy this? To run a wimpy Sram read derailleur that will twist up like a coil when I snag a twig?

Pinkbike Poll: What Mountain Bike Event Are You Most Likely to Watch?
I haven't watched anything since the Redbull app on my smart tv stopped working. I tried synching my tv to my phone but it doesn't work. I'm certainly not going to watch on a mobile screen.

Explore Southern Switzerland in "Discovering Ticino" - Video
Switzerland is beautiful and the people are nice but it is quite expensive and quite frankly even if you commit to paying for it the food sucks, well except for the cheese. Currently I am living in Switzerland but I can't wait to get back to Spain where the food is great and the spirit and ambience (and trails) are much better.

Vittoria Barzo Tire - Review
I'm currently running the the Barzo 27.5 on the rear. I switched from a Maxxis Ardent. The Barzo is faster and lighter but not as grippy as the Ardent exo. The Barzo does do well in the mud but over slippery rocks and roots the Ardent does better. Lastly when I'm cornering with the Barzo with too low of pressure I get that squirmy folding sensation. I like technical singletracks and the Barzo just doesn't make the cut for me so I will be switching back to the Ardent.

A Tour of the Pyrenees' Endless Trails - Photo Report
Good article and it looks like a great experience. Having lived in Spain 6 1/2 years I must say that you definitely should go on a guided tour if you want to discover the great trails and not get lost. Presently I am living in Switzerland and I have to tell you that so far I'm not so impressed and I find the trails a bit blah. The trails in Spain are much more wild and exciting. Btw so that your readers can get a better perspective of the region and culture of the area you should mention that you are in Catalonia. Thank you!

Pinkbike Poll: Does the Current Method of Mountain Bike Classification Make Sense?
@PHeller: It sounds like you're describing Nino Schurter :)

Pinkbike Poll: Does the Current Method of Mountain Bike Classification Make Sense?
I think there needs to be a seperate category for the XC bikes that are hard tail, no dropper post, feather light with a steep head angle, maybe they should be called "Marathon". These are pure endurance riders that tend to stick to fire roads and flat single track.

e*thirteen Releases New TRS+ 9-46 Tooth Cassette
Wow what a tiny cog! I would think such a tiny cog would require more torque, decreasing your pedal efficiency and increasing chain wear. Am I wrong? This is why Srams 10 tooth cog didn't appeal to me.
