The Actual Weights of 18 Enduro World Cup Bikes
Lots of carbon frames are 3,2-3,6kg (7-8lb), only few of these recent big hitter frames are lighter, and some Al frames are in that same weight range. There is more weight difference between high and low quality Al frames (between 3,2 and 4,7kg) than between the average carbon and Al frame.

Downhill Tech Randoms - Leogang World Cup 2024
I also have the Knipex pliers, Wera Allen keys and old tooth brushes in my toolbox. I guess that makes me a pro mechanic? But seriously : Knipex pliers can break, they do wonders but remember they're not the same as a spanner. Don't be stupid like me

First Look: The 2025 Geometron G1 is More Adjustable & More Proportional
@BrianColes: the main issue here is, if there is mention of the weight, refer to the damn frame weight... Giving only complete bike weights is only "drowning" the info. Useful when you buy complete builds though, but here I think that we are mainly talking about the frame. It would be so easy if we had the Geometron and Slash frame weights actually compared, for example.

13 Tire Setups From Red Bull Hardline
Hard-line has big jumps and high speed --> need pretty high pressure. That pretty high pretty is enough not to get rock punctures, even without inserts. But if you ride slower and on rocky tracks, you may want a DD/DH tyre with insert and 20psi for max grip and still good puncture protection. Just using 25-30psi will give protection, but less grip, and a security against squirming which is not necessary.

Review: Forbidden Druid - Travel is Just a Number
To answer that, you'd have to make a poll with the 2 possible explanations and have the PinkVoice® decide where the truth lies

@speed10: I hear you, also the rims are not even 36 spoke so why bother

Value Field Test: Devinci Kobain - Hardtail Nirvana
That's an argument for people who want a hardtail than can try to keep up with a FS. I think it makes sense for a lot of people who already have a 16-17kg enduro/park bike, to get a really light and nimble hardtail. For this, a 1,8kg Al frame makes more sense than a 3,3kg Chromag frame, compliance be damned

Video: Official Highlights from the Bielsko-Biala DH World Cup 2024
Now I'm really curious who tf downvoted you and why. 408m vertical on a 1950m run is 21% average gradient.

Now THAT Was a Bike: 2016 Pole Evolink
@jesse-effing-edwards: I think here you overlook one of the main goals of the CNC'd frames, Leo said it was one good way to bring back manufacturing to Finland at acceptable cost. Personally I can't say, I'm riding excellent Al frames but they are not made in Europe for sure

Review: The Revel Rascal V2 is a Live Wire Trail Bike
@Blownoutrides: same goes for smaller sizes, remember XS/S bikes with 400mm reach and 430mm chainstays. Also, today short people better like big bikes, considering these 430mm minimum reach... In the past, front centers were so short, there was only benefits in trying to keep the chain stays as short as possible. Now reach and HA have grown so much, at 190cm my geo review process is CS (435-455) and SA (75-78) allow steep climbing? Then a reasonable front center please, and with 64┬░ HA I don't want more than 470-495 reach. I'll use a 50mm stem instead of 30 if I feel cramped. I'm often looking at M size bikes now...
