I'm 20 years old and I love to bike and run track. I recently started racing cyclocross at Fort Lewis College in Durango, CO so I'm fit like a lemur!

Review: TRP's New DH-R EVO Brakes
@nurseben: "More power" also means riders with control over their fingers have less fatigue and more energy to put elsewhere in a race run. Shimano Saint brakes are plenty easy to modulate, you just don't squeeze as hard and if you find that hard to do in panic situations then you need to work on upping your skill level or lowering your pace so that "panic" situations don't happen.

Review: Transition's New Sentinel V2 - Now With More Travel
@BiNARYBiKE: That explains it! I am ~6' 4" with a ~38.5" inseam and use 5.10 Impacts while riding on 165mm cranks, so seat tube length and angle is very important to me. I also prefer large reach numbers and stack height.

Review: Transition's New Sentinel V2 - Now With More Travel
@SintraFreeride: I am 6' 4" (193cm) and have a 38.5" (~98cm) inseam and wear 5.10 Impacts to ride. I need all the seat tube I can get. I would still have the post ~ 70mm out of the frame with 165mm cranks and SDG saddle even with the 490mm seat tube. I don't understand why companies make XXL bikes and then chop the seat tube a ton so people can size up, what about the people who have no option to size up that the XXL is aimed at?

No, they need to go longer on the XXL seat tube length! Tall people don't fit anything below 490

@thenotoriousmic: How can you be between those two sizes? The seattube won't work at all for the Large and it'll be real close on the XL unless you have short legs. At 6'3" you could very easily get away with the XXL or do the XL if you aren't yet accustomed to longer reaches and your legs will work with the seattube.

First Look: Fox's New Float X2 & DHX2 Shocks - Pond Beaver 2020 (Updated With Video)
A 230lb dirtbike that hits things for hours at a time much harder than any rampage rider is doing on a bicycle has the same system, I'm sure it will work just fine.

@dhmtbr777: yes, it was a UCI DH World Cup. Jared Graves on a Yeti ended up second and an American dude raced a homemade carbon 29er. And on the topic of prototypes, a lot of Vouilloz’s wins were on prototype Sunn bikes.

First Look: Ibis' Longest, Slackest, and Burliest Ripley
Seriously, I’d have to run a 200mm dropper to ride this XL. It’s like extra large sizes aren’t being designed for tall people, but for average height guys wanting to size up.
