10 Things I Loved in 2023: Dario DiGiulio
The Mallet DH's with the dedicated C Bros shoe is a game changer. Nothing I've tried is anything like it, including past iterations of Crank Bros. I just wish they made a 14.5. I'll put up with toe pain for the amazing feel of this system, the added Q is so good. Thank you Dario for all your work, it's great to have a taller rider on the PB team, your excellant writing is also appreciated.

KS Release LEV Circuit Wireless Dropper Seat Post
If you happen to have grip related issues, and some of us do, ulnar nerve damage etc., the wireless dropper is a extremely important piece of kit, worth every penny. Instead of having to partially un grip and swing the thumb through a arc, just tap and never disturb your grip. Shifting is a similar situation, not as critical but then my right is less impaired. It is surprising that Sram hasn't put out a longer post, I'm sure it'll be here soon.

Review: We Are One Arrival 170 - An Enduro Race Bike That Can Climb
I'm a huge fan of WAO, I have a early set of their rims built by a local shop as they recommended and they haven't ever needed attention. The pod on PB with Dustin made me like them even more. And,,,,,,I went for the Nomad 6 in XXL. If you are 6'4" with long legs you have zero chance of getting a good fit, in fact, I'm guessing many taller people will have trouble, the high BB, low stack is a bad combination for taller people, you end with that perched on top situation. The Nomad is the first bike I've had that finally gets my bar height up around seat height like you shorter riders get to enjoy, and that's with lots of spacers and a 35 rise. My ideal would be the Raww Madonna in XL, 530/stack for days. I traded in a Stumpjumper in S6 to get the Nomad and even the Stumpy in 6 didn't' get me to this fit, this heaven that I have been waiting for for an eternity. Do I miss the smaller bike on my local trails where the Nomad is supposed to be too much bike, not for a second. If I were much younger, much more skilled maybe I would want a short travel bike and I'm guessing that 90% of the riders out there given the chance to ride one of these newer long travel bikes would not prefer a short travel bike if they're riding anything that isn't just smooth and boring. Since I started MTB, ten years ago the game has changed drastically, the riding position, (enduro/moto?) is so different, requires a different design of bike, finally we're getting to what makes sense.

Video: Decoding the Cool Factor - What Sets Certain MTB Brands Apart from the Rest? | Pinkbike Magazine Show Ep. 10
If you're tall or short then the brands that make a bike that fits are the ones that are cool. I'm 6'4" and there were no bikes that fit until recently. The sizing charts would say things like the XL fit to 6'6", what a miserable joke. Now, these are good times. SC, Transition, Spech, bikes that actually fit!!!!

Pinkbike Editors' Christmas 2022 Wish Lists: Workshops, XL MX Bikes... & Better Cheese?
Someone in a place, like say the Bay Area in CA, needs to arrange a swap with Levy. Someone with a track prepped Miata or two has him down for a week or two of driving Laguna, Sonoma, Thunderhill. In exchange, said nice person gets a week or two of riding the best BC has to offer, with Levy guiding, transportation included. Levy, you need to get on a track with a proper car, with for real track set up, get this itch scratched, while you're at it, get down with carts at the Sonoma cart track. I sold my 944 S2, and 996 long ago, which I regret fiercely, but you wouldn't have reached the pedals anyway, fortunately you'll fit just fine in a Miata which is the way to start, no question. Just be careful at Sonoma Raceway, there are walls and tire barriers that will make the deal a bit expensive, it is a track no to be missed though.
