Field Test: Scott Ransom
@mikekazimer: So brands should get the seat angle correct in large and x-large. It's not rocket science just good design. I like that fact that Aston is starting to point out the obvious. Brands have a build a different mold for the different size front triangles (and should stop being cheap a build scaled rear triangles for each size too) so steepen up the seat angles for the larger frames (which obviously are ridden by taller & generally heavier riders).

Paul Component Engineering Announces New Dropper Trigger
What about the Turbine remote that wraps around the bar/ grip. Pretty low profile

8 Modern Downhill Pants Ridden & Rated
@rrolly: I bought some Pearl Izumi Summit Amfib Pants. They are almost like a wet suit material but breath really well. I have worn them in -5ºC through to about +5ºC and they have revolutionised my late autumn/ winter riding (also bought some Amfib shoe covers which are real toe savers too).

Pinkbike Awards: Component of the Year Nominees
@covekid: And you see the kind of person who is buying new XTR as it is being released (ie at full MSRP) choosing something other than I9, DT Swiss or Chris King for their hubs?

Video: Miranda Miller vs. Claire Buchar - Pinkbike Hot Lap
I'd like to see the entire trail as a hot lap so one can see the climbing skills of the riders as well. Great fun watching the best ride this trail. Thanks PB.

Review: Fox Live Valve Suspension
@tkaszuba: I imagine that for a lot of the riders I speak to when they ask me about adjusting suspension that they would get in the right range faster with a shock wiz and a stop watch than they would without it. I'm not saying that it does not have some issues and obviously runs an algorithm that has certain assumptions built into it but it can help. That said having the self discipline to run multiple (ie at least 4 per suspension setting: air pressure, tokens, LSR, LSC and HSC) varied test loops with a stop watch and concentrating on improvements (or not) in traction and time in various sections would also help most riders.

Review: POC Tectal Race SPIN Helmet
Or if you keep crashing and destroy two helmets in one season (thanks POC for helping avoid brain injuries) you can swap your SPIN liner from your original Tectal Race into a regular Tectal (because it is the only one left in stock on XL) and still get the benefits of SPIN.

Opinion: Why Have Bike Makers Ignored this Grassroots Fix?
@nismo325: Those cars don't get tomahawked down rock and root covered trails on a daily/ weekly basis! Or leant against stone walls by renters with no concept of what the bike might be worth and that paint and stanchion coatings and pointy rock don't play well together!!

Opinion: Why Have Bike Makers Ignored this Grassroots Fix?
Yes but they cannot even put the strips they provide now in the parts box without folding them in such a way that they a rippled and un-usable now!
