Review: Giant Trance 2
@AndrewMacNaughton: yeah, RC has no idea what he's doing. Only been riding a couple of months. He's really in to beach crusiers.

Review: Giant Trance 2
I'm going to guess that you guys havent actually run 30mm rims then. It's a striking difference of grip, running lower pressures and cornering.

Bell's New Full Face and Bargain MIPS Half Shell - Eurobike 2018
@Samplidude: what's wrong with ONeal? I had the worst crash of my life and landed straight on one going about 30mph. It took the impact like a champ. I barely had a headache for a few hours. The helmet didn't even crack (but it was dented real bad and the visor basically disintegrated). Doesn't Minnaar race in one?

Eurobike Randoms II - Eurobike 2018
@DavidGuerra: much like many things in mtb, consumers demand the same equipment that the pros ride. But they have no ability to go even half the speed the pros do and probably don't even have the ability to get down a pro race track with walking or going around the features. Then they scratch their heads at some product design or feature made so the pros go faster, say they don't ever need it and then chalk it up to being a marketing gimmick and a way to charge more for something.

First Ride: 2019 Specialized Epic EVO
@danielsapp: The review says, "I ran the Brain both fully engaged and wide open." Then says "The shock works well so I ran it in the firm position almost all of the time." Is this contradicting each other, or am I not understanding something about the shock?

Eurobike Randoms II - Eurobike 2018
@SintraFreeride: their speed isn't limited going downhill. I find it hard to believe that a bike weighing twice as much will not need beefier everything as it hits the gnar. After all, DH bikes need beefier stuff weighing 10 lbs more. I see guys riding EXO trail tires on their Enduro bikes on DH tracks. Those same tires wouldn't last more than a run or two on a big bike.

Eurobike Randoms II - Eurobike 2018
@SintraFreeride: the heavier you are, the more brake you need. I see heavy hardtail riders rolling 200mm rotors all the time (including me and my 200lb self). Compare a semi truck's brakes to your cars. The tire issue, I would guess, has more to do with speed of the climb rather than weight. You would choose a different tire for a slow crawl rather than a 20mph blast uphill.

@iqbal-achieve: I think Orange is onto something for sure. Us mere mortals would greatly benefit from a featherlight Demo, as we could lift and hop it as we picked our way through a rock garden. But if you are hitting those same rocks at twice or more the speed, you need weight to keep its composure and not buck you off.
