Bike Check: Adam Brayton's Nukeproof Dissent 297 - Red Bull Hardline 2021
Wasn't Elliot running a carbon version of the same frame? If so, why is Adam choosing/given the Alu one?

Thought Experiment: Where Is It Worth Saving Weight on a Trail Bike?
@Tracefunction: Sadly, for most people It's easier/makes more sense to pay money to lose weight on a bike than lose weight themselves and have to change/compromise their lifestyle

Thought Experiment: Where Is It Worth Saving Weight on a Trail Bike?

Thought Experiment: Where Is It Worth Saving Weight on a Trail Bike?

Thought Experiment: Where Is It Worth Saving Weight on a Trail Bike?
I think one thing we must consider that this article does not mention is that riders of different weights may affect where you choose to save weight too... to a lighter rider, losing a kg off the bike makes a bigger difference than it does to a heavier rider in terms of rider to bike weight ratio.

Review: 2022 Fox 34 Fork - A Short Travel Standout
I do on my downcountry bike. At 120mm it's more than stiff enough for me at 220lbs provided you are staying in the realm of what a 120mm bike "should" be riding...
