First Look: Mondraker's F-Podium Brings Forward Geometry to XC Racing
RC - I understood your point to mean that a FS bike is outright better than a hardtail XCO style races. if that is the case, shouldn't gender comparisons be irrelevant? Elite level riders have a choice from their sponsors and depending on the course will excise that option. I saw a lot of usual FS riders in the Elite men and women on HT's this weekend at Albstadt. I doubt that we will see the same trend at Nove Mesto, or MSA.

Video: RockShox's Wireless Reverb AXS Dropper Post Explained
I love RS's drivetrain /non-seatpost suspension / Brakes and have used them for years - but this pricing is outrageous and unsubstantiated in the article. I know it takes investment, time, and effort of many people to develop and bring new tech to market - this is a real driver of cost. That said, Given tax, tariffs, and other issues - I'd love to hear from someone at the Big S on why they feel $800 was right for margi.... erm I mean, the right MSRP for the global market.

Review: Thule RoundTrip Traveler Bike Bag
I love traveling with my own setup but I've have recently had issues where my 36 was slightly bent due to rough handling. I'd love to see manufacturers provide inserts for the front and rear axles to secure the bike and prevent bending of the frame/fork.
