Behind the Numbers: Specialized Stumpjumper EVO 29 Suspension Analysis
Entry level riders and people who think they ride hard but really don't. That's 90 percent of the market at least. Specialized knows that, and that is why they design it like this.

Opening Day Survey: What People Are Riding at the Whistler Bike Park
@MarcusBrody: Depends what you want to show. If this is a breakdown of what the bikes that were counted had on them, yes. But if you want it to show what all the people were riding you need to extrapolate to the total nr of riders. That comes with big error margins for all those rare sightings. Let alone if you want to extrapolate to the entire mtb community.

Aaron Gwin Comments on Injured Ankle, Broken Cranks, & More
They hint at it, but what doesn't come out clearly is that the top pros are not usually the ones doing the bleeding edge testing of products. They have others for that. Because nobody wants stuff like this to happen. I know a guy who used to be a pro and a test rider for Specialized in the time that disk brakes were starting to come out. He blew up tons of them. Only the ones that survived his testing then went on to the high-profile riders also on the payroll. Not surprisingly, he was one of the last riders I know that was running V-brakes on an otherwise high end bike only a few years back.

First Ride: Pivot's XC Race Ready 2020 Mach 4 SL
@angryasian: great to see you back at a site I actually read! I basically stopped reading Bikeradar after you left there and the reviews by your replacements just didn't have the depth I was looking for.

First Ride: Pivot's XC Race Ready 2020 Mach 4 SL
@BenPea: This is James Huang though, coming over from cyclingtips, and bikeradar before that. He reviews road bikes too. So not your average pinkbike 'downcountry is everything less than 160mm' type of dude.

8 World Cup DH Racers' Cockpit Setups - British National Series Round 2
Wingspan to bar width ratios are all over the place. Goes to show it either doesn't matter much or there's a lot more room for improvement. Kind of like leg length to crank length ratios.

First Look: Mondraker's F-Podium Brings Forward Geometry to XC Racing
@ericolsen: I think the point was not about the technical abilities of the men or women. It was about how close they are to each other. Because it is the athletes that matter most, not the bikes. Only if many of the athletes are very close to each other in skill, you can start seeing differences between the bikes. This is more the case in men's xco than in women's, that is what he is saying. And I agree. The reasons for that is a whole different discussion but not what it is about here.

Fantasy XC League Results - Albstadt World Cup XC 2019
I changed my team but apparently missed to push some kind of 'save' button. The team I wanted to change to had Flueckiger and Courtney in it, the team that I played with didn't ????
