Review: Fezzari's 2019 La Sal Peak is a Fun & Modern All-Rounder
@ianswilson815: Yeah I don't see how a Bike Yoke dropper equates to a lower quality build. Probably one of the two most reliable and user serviceable dropper posts on the market at the moment (9point8 being the other).

Tech Randoms Round 2 - Maribor DH World Cup 2019
Ditches the servo wave. Expert riders can modulate a lot more finely than some "suit the every day joe" modulation vs power curve that a group of Shimano engineers decided upon. I have run XTR Race with Saint calipers for four years. Also the carbon levers are less cold on the fingers on colder days.

6 Things We Learned - European DH Cup: Round 1 Maribor
I think it is good form that the World Cup level pros attend and practice at these lower tier events but do not participate in the qualifying and racing part. That way the IXS Cup level riders can see what it takes to get to the top level during practice but they are not being displaced in important points earning finish positions by riders who do not need those points in order to gain entry to the WC level races.

Pinkbike Poll: How Do You Prefer to Get to the Top of a Descent?
@mgrantorser: so the 65 kg expert rider on a 20 kg e-bike does more damage than the 95 kg intermediate rider on a 13 kg bike? Interesting..........

Opinion: Carbon and Aluminum Wheels - Does Stiffer Always Mean Better?
@BonoVox101: A lot of the early 35mm standard bars were too stiff. It was as if the designers had forgotten that the main point of a carbon fibre bar was the vibration dampening characteristics. Possibly they were concerned that building the bar too light would lead to failures especially after a crash. Also there is something fundamentally incompatible between the human wrist and a 8º back sweep. 9º to 12º feels more natural.
