Review: The 2023 Yeti SB120 is a Comfortable Trail Cruiser
Waiting for this bike quite a while, thinking it would be something spectacular. The Cannondale Scalpel SE2 or an Orbea OIZ TR, YT Jeffsy seems like a lot more value for money.

Field Test: 6 Downcountry Bikes Hucked to Flat in Slo-Mo
Just wondering: how is that Lapierre even considered a 'DoWnCOUntrY' bike? Even on the Lapierre website it says: ".. The XRM is the fastest and lightest marathon cross-country bike we've.." As I understand the term downcountry.. that's the 'vertical' side of riding crosscountry trails. The travel of this bike doesn't make it fit in that category, maybe the geometry, but then again the intended crowd it's marketed at has nothing to do with DoWnCOUntrY..

Tech Week 2023: Vee Tire Co Releases New Models Developed with Aaron Gwin
@ATXZJ: I feel you, although I'm not Schwalbe or neither am I trying to make any advertisement for them. The thing you mentioned, would be a good reason to go back to the place you bought these tyres. We replace a bunch of those under warranty. If there are still plenty of intact knobs, without heavy wear, it would make for a free replacement as some of these tyres seem to suffer from this.

Poll: How Do You Actually Feel About Cable Routing?
I've been mostly working on Acros headsets, which seem to have a lifespan of a very little (talking about the bearings or the plastics that hold them in place) Besides this, the way the routing is done, and if you are a little OCD on your cablelengths and cockpit setup, it adds a whole lot of extra tinkering to the whole for very little gain it seems. Working with even less margins or strange folds - its gets annoying to place things around, cut it at correct length etc. let along getting eye-pleasing curves that roll along the bars. It just fuzzes up a lot of straight forward procedures upto a point you wonder why they invented this whole jigsaw puzzle. If I would have to explain how to do an easy clean and lube your fork / headset region of your bike looks, it kinda scares the heck of out the everyday Joe. I'm not talking about your sub 10kg XC machine, where every weightsaving might be worth 10K in the eyes of the customer. No, it's mostly found on 27+kg E-bikes.

Finals Photo Epic - Red Bull Rampage 2022
Maybe it's the hype created around the event. Lately half of the time it seems being in between navigating from some insane runs, waiting, poor camerawork and weird scores (and the wind). Some of the contestants + crew dig 8 days? to do 3 jumps without nearly any tricks. Then there is this bit halfway were they praise the woman-scene where they rode a bunch of things they made collectively. Maybe the 'male' scene can learn something from this.. Can't they make a bit where they do a part their own line, hit a couple / their own selection of mandatory prepared ramps, so they have more time to prepare their lines, actually riding them? At worst, make it a multi day event, bring in a bunch of other disciplines. In 2 days you can complete 2 runs, heck even more? - even let them run down for a best trick on a preferred line/spot. But yeah this is all really easy said from home and I wonder every time I bother watching it. At least the photos do it justice. More of them please!
