Bike Check: Charlie Harrison's Intense M29 FRO - Crankworx Innsbruck 2018
@bapaul: By design, do you mean style ? Or function ? Cuz' pulling on the struts could make the rotors weaker. Maybe my reasoning is wrong but I tend to think that an object is quite often stronger in compression than in tension. Also, I guess the struts are angled so that it sort of counter-acts the braking vector force, the force goes through it longitudinaly rather than lateraly, or something like that.

Tech From the Pits - Leogang World Cup DH 2018
Sorry to be the grammar nazi but it's "would have" or "would've", but "would of" doesn't make any sense.

@WAKIdesigns: Getting old or getting wise ? Not that I’m saying I’m wise, just wondering which it is. To keep your comparison on sex, it’s not about premarital sex, it’s more about unprotected sex, as this is about acting on impulse without thinking about the consequences. I said nowhere we’d be better of as hunters-gatherers, this is the old trick of pushing what I said to the extreme to discredit what I said (I just said a 250hp car is more than enough, not to ban all cars, though if it was me I’d put strong limits on street legal cars). Yeah going fast in a car used to be cool, until it developed exponentially and there are now millions of cars and the pollution (gaz, noise, space) that comes with it. Going fast in a plane was cool too, until it developed exponentially with LCC and there are now thousands of flights everyday to the point of shading the sky here and there. That drive for speed has some good effects, we got rockets and satellites (or maybe it was military research, but still: for more power), GPS and meteorology, but that drive may lead us to our doom at some point, all graphics show an unsustainable exponential growth based on an exponential use of natural resources. I heard the other day that each of us has the equivalent of 400 slaves thanks to the energetic resources, so in some ways we’re all pharaohs, that’s cool, but is it sustainable ? Does a 800HP car make any sense ? Don’t you think those numbers are insane ? It's not really the cars that bother me, it's what it embodies in our society (power, wealth, social status, personnal space in the public space, stupid behaviour, etc) I don’t mind anyone trying to push the limit of a self made invention, but I don’t like when this whole way of thinking (more power, more speed, more money, more bigger car/boat/house) is force fed on everyone as if this was the alpha & omega of existence. I don’t know, having so much energy at hand has made us individualistic, egocentric, so we try to find some fast ways to occupy our time, when we could just have a nice time going slower with relatives and friends. And if you want to go faster, just ride a bike :p

@Chingus-Dude: I for one don't like cars anymore. I think it's childish. The world is changing (on top of being messed up with pollution and global warming) and we've got to grow out of this whole "more power, more speed" thing about cars. This is a dominant way of thinking that drags everybody to think more or less the same. Kids dream about a sport car. They don't know why, but they do. Cuz' it's out there, when you're a winner, you have a sport car. We've got to elevate ourselves as human beings, not consumers. For a 2-seater, the new Alpine would suit me well. 250Hp, a bit more than 1000kg, around 60000€, that's already more than enough. More than 100K€ a car is insane when you think about what the average dude earns each month.

Ultimate Bike Check: Phil Atwill's Propain Rage Carbon 29"
While the weight distribution isn't exactly meaningful per say and varies a lot during riding, I'd be curious to see mine, with my bike feeling a bit too short. If we could get a dynamic monitoring of this data (through suspensions pressure ?) it could be quite interesting.

Tech Randoms - Nove Mesto World Cup XC
I would gladly see the geometry of this one. Funny how small rotors make the wheels look like 32 or 36".
