The 2022 Canyon Lux World Cup is Still an Unapologetically Sharp-Edged XC Race Bike
What's the solution when seatstay/rocker bearing wiggles in its position in the seatstay, and there are no seatstay spares in stock?...

Review: E*Thirteen's New Grappler Tire
I thought Maxxis Double Down was the equivalent of Schwalbe Super Gravity. Is Super trail as tough as DD? or is it just similar weight but weaker? Also I agree with the difficulty to find hard compound in tough casing. Does anybody know good options for a rear tyre that will keep all its knobs for one DH season? Currently running Schwalbe bike park, the "addix bike park" is not bad at lasts a while, but the casing has wire bead and weighs a ton. Super Gravity/addix bike park would be perfect...

OneUp Announces New Carbon E-Bar Designed for Compliance
Or Spank. I have a 50mm vibrocore which is great, though I have no idea how different it is from the non vibrocore one

@Green2Gold: hand position in line with axle? Doesn't the bar have backsweep ?

Bike Check: Nico Vouilloz's Lapierre GLP 2 EWS-E Race Bike
@islandforlife: new to a fox 36 in 170mm and 29", I'm 210lbs and wondering if the harshness I feel can be just bad setup/bedding in or the infamous bucking effect? 38 too expensive, based on your experience would you advise lyrik or Zeb or keep the 36? Fork weight is no issue. Riding a lot of portes du Soleil style DH

Nerding Out: Why a Lower Shock Position Doesn't Make a Bike More Stable
Oh btw : a friend of mine rides a "tall bike", his COG is like 1,8m above ground, and he also uses the stick analogy to explain why it is actually easy to ride (on flat ground without obstacles! obviously would be a nightmare in MTB)

Nerding Out: Why a Lower Shock Position Doesn't Make a Bike More Stable
If you're standing on your bike, 0 km/h, you are "moving your body to keep balance". But when moving, imagine it the other way around : if you turn left, you "push" towards your right side (or if you're on ice, you don't push anything, you have no traction and you fall). The opposite reaction means that the ground is applying a force towards your left side. That force is in some way similar to the guy pushing the bottom of the pole with his fingers, not only up (to support the weight), but on the necessary side to stay below the COG. The main difference is : the ground is not the one 'thinking and correcting", you are. It's a lot more complicated, but when assuming the bike+rider as a pretty rigid system (which is obviously not accurate at all! maybe when riding flat ground without obstacles?), the stick analogy makes some sense.

In France, the word for "tail" is "queue" and it's also used for talking about one's banana

@JMHPB: maybe the tapered part could narrowed down "more quickly" once the lower bearing contact point is passed? More work for XC fork manufacturers ofc

I does exist. Some Spanish folks created it and sell it (negative rise, in short mode it's a short stem, and mid and long modes it goes further and lower)
