Pinkbike Poll: What Size Are Your Tires?
Hans Dampf is worthless compared to Bontragers XR4 and I could argue that XR2 allows you to ride faster because although the “Laboratory test” grip maybe better for HD, the XR2 has a much more predictable breakaway. Hou can try really stupid things with XC and intermediate Bontragers and with a bit of skill you will always have time for reaction.

Just get a 36... you can service it yourself, saving up to 100$ a year. You just need own oil and crush washers. Lyrik still has a bladder and good luck with that at home garage for 99% of owners. That super oil in Lyrik is a laugh. You could get high fly oils and seals to pretty much any modern fork at any quality place.

Matt Jones & Diego Caverzasi Injured, Tom Isted Competing - Crankworx Rotorua 2019
The important thing is he opted not to compete, faced with potential brain injury. He deserves all sorts of credit for this. So do his sponsors for supporting him in this decision Riiiight? ;)

@DrPete: The real joke is what Jordan from Sick Bicycles told me. Companies should start making frames with 145mm rear end spacing. In this way your bike will accept both 142 and 148. Stays of nearly any bike have enough flex to successfully compensate for 3mm of hub width :)

@zzzogas413: we can be clear, the real problem is trans-sandbaggers and transphobes. The one level deeper we have online warriors most of whom have no fkng clue about repercussions of their sht throwing, and I doubt whether they actually care about women being robbed or transgender people being emancipated. They all care about online entertainment and self leverage, recreational empathy and outrage. Ooooh I want to fight for transgender rights, I am such a good person... oh I want to fight for women... I will give an example that shows how stupid the whole thing is: If Emily Batty (yes she of all) makes a short instagram post where she writes something in the lines of: "we are worried and urge UCI to take a stance in transgender case, for the good of female racing and the transgender people themselves" - hell will break loose, she will be called names, she'll be called an agent of patriarchy, ONLY because she grew up to be pretty and she is successful... and she drives a Porsche. All her assets, all her hard work, all good things that she worked for or was lucky to get, will be turned against her. As it already happened on an occasion or two. And on top of that she will get a bunch of idiots from the transphobic side, making her into a symbol of fight against "weirdos". Just like Far right folks use J Peterson as their poster boy, even though he openly condemns them. The ultimate problem here is, that case is unresolved, and Kate, who is one of all of us Mountain bikers, people who get extremely happy because they ride a bike fast in the woods, she just got on podium (how rad is that?!) and this joy will be broken to some degree by folks calling her a sandbagger. That she didn't deserve it. And this will happen every single time she steps on a podium.

@TheBearDen: I am more than happy to believe you, since I know how good the pattern is. I rode pretty much alltyres from Bonty and pretty much every single one is excellent, which cannot be said of any other company. XR2 is just mind blowing. Whoever swears by Nobby Nics and Hans Dampfs, try XR2... freaking try it! XC tyre putting full on trail tyres to shame. I can’t really give 2.6 SE5 a try though, it rolls too slowly on my local trails and for the bikepark I need big caliber casings, so I use G5 there :D

@zzzogas413: that is an assumption. Or as I would call it a theory which motivation can be explained. An unknown none the less. How to figure it out... what about... so, let’s say that if they actually do feel worried about their careers, or at least think that it may be an uneven field, but are afraid to speak up then they should say that they are worried but they are afraid to speak their mind. Would work best if they coordinated personal short statements about it, rather than write one collective one. Then allow someone write an article “women afraid to speak up”. Do you see what is going on here... positioning of the victim... Back to reality, it is the victim/ opressor relation that fks it all up. Come the fk on, Look at Kate, does she look like an evil person? Hell No! I really think it is an obligatory unfairness to Kate to put the whole issue on he shoulders. I give her full benefit of doubt, and genuinely feel sorry for her. She looks like a genuinely good person... meanwhile most online discussions are polarized and a person looking at it from the side may see it as a raging fight of trans-samdbaggers vs tramsphobes which is very rarely the case.

In all fairness I see more relaxation on the faces of the girls here than when Rachel is present on the podium... if you care ask the girls to speak up for themselves. They are all within your reach on social media. I am not saying there is no obvious issue.
