Mondraker Dune - Review
@IllestT: I am not convinced that a longer bike surpasses a shorter bike. Different horses for different courses. I think for talller riders like the reviewer, a longer bike will fit them better. My own experience is that I have a long dh bike and a short trail bike. They’re both great at their intended uses and I don’t feel like one design is better than the other.

Santa Cruz Nomad 4 - Review
This bike looks pretty good in person, this bike just doesn't photograph well. I like the move to separate the Nomad from the Bronson and create a new free ride design. The price is expensive, but you do get multiple life time warranties.

Windrock Bike Park To Host National Championship Pre-Race
I like this new format, mechanical problems and flats are minimized. The riders also are not as likely to be affected by bad weather showing up at the end of the day when the fastest qualifiers typically do their runs.

Finals Result: Fort William DH World Cup 2017
The top three have all won on other wheel sizes. The rider is the only constant. When riders win on 29"ers, who have previously not won on other wheel sizes, then we will some more conclusive evidence about one size being faster than another.

Stepping into the Ring: iXS European Downhill Cup 1 – Kranjska Gora
"Slawek" Lukasik, according to the NS Bikes website. The NS Bikes Fuzz 1 or 2 ( Slawek's bike) would be a good option for an affordable DH bike review or bike check.

Another New Standard? Here Comes Boost 20x110
@general-lee, You are correct, this is preparing for the introduction of the 29er dh bikes and suspension. Time will tell if the 29" wheel is faster or not, but the industry will be pushing this as early as next year ( just my opinion).

Mitch Ropelato Shreds the Streets of SLC, Utah - Video
The best compliment I can give this video and the rider is that he looks like a young Hans Rey. Videos like this show us what the real differences are between the pro riders and the rest of us.

Alutech Unveil the Sennes DH 29
@ThomDawson: It was Richard Cunningham, who said that full suspension eliminates most of the draw backs of the 26" wheel size. But clearly you must know more than him too.

Alutech Unveil the Sennes DH 29
@ThomDawson: You are incorrect about associated trade-offs going away with improved manufacturing techniques. The trade-offs are based on physics, therefore you cannot manufacture out the differences. I have ridden all 4 wheel sizes and can tell you that they are all good AND bad at different aspects of riding. Full-suspension basically equalizes all the sizes anyway. Disc brakes are a major improvement in every aspect of mountain biking, adding 1/2" to the outside diameter of a 26" (interior ) wheel is not... P.s. the real reason they used 26" wheels originally was because it was considered a child's size bike wheel and had a different/ cheaper import tax at the time .
