Not So Fast: How Dropper Posts Created Steep Seat Tube Angles
@WAKIdesigns: I just quit my job as a bike mechanic cause I couldn't handle this fashion over function marketing bullsh*t no more. The real shredders usually don't really care and the only ones who actually care don't usually shred... It's pseudo scientific made up marketing. Exo tires on super wide rims cause stiffness but dropping pressures to sub 20psi because harshness and loosing grip. Then having to install cush core instead of just having used dh tires at the first place. All going full circles. Going to 35mm handlebars but then install vibrocore ones. Going 12 speed and 50 teeth dinner plate but then go two chairing sizes up and still never use the hardest gears. I sometimes feel like the big companys do invent problems instead of solutions so they can keep selling stuff instead of just take a short break and think for a very short amount of time because that's all that would be needed to just not have to solve those problems. Boost is even better! 110x20 is too stiff so let's try 15x100, OK that's not sooo nice why not go 15x110. Oh that's better, how about going 110x20 but let's make it a new thing. Happy to leave this circuss.

Not So Fast: How Dropper Posts Created Steep Seat Tube Angles
@WAKIdesigns: but... But bigger is always better! Because it's more! And more is better! Always... BTW im 175 and using 100mm dropper so the saddle is at a position I can actually use it to control my bike. And it's never in my way. As on my dh bike I always set the saddle to the highest position where it doesn't bother me when cornering but still can be used as a additional contact point. Can't really lean against a saddle with my knees...

Actually that sounds pretty beautiful.

Anton Cooper Criticizes Albstadt World Cup Course for Lack of Technicality
@Loki87: As a Bikeshop owner this totally reflects what i'm seeing every single day. People walking into the Shop buying softer tires because they can't corner as hard as the pro rider they've seen the other day... A friend of mine runs a bikeschool an i usually tell people that a two hours private lesson cost about the same as a set of tires. People still just buy the tires and hardly ever book the coaching. Kinda helps me run my business but it's still hilarious.

Funny how they don't produce carbon Bikes because of ecological reasons. But an E-Bike is no Problem...

First Ride: Pivot's New Trail 429
I am waiting for the Hyperboost 160mm Version... It's gonna be so stiff that a year later they gonna "invent" a 10.89mm Axle as 12mm was too stiff.
