MUST WATCH: Tom Van Steenbergen in ‘Wild West 2’
holy! sick edit and sick riding! Godspeed on your recovery. PS Tom: don't congratulate your bro on King of Crankworx and just chirp him about going sans spins & flips on the Speed and Style event.

Why Are So Many Road Cycling Teams Starting to Race XC?
Lol! I want mountain biking to grow but - selfishly - I don’t want it to grow tooo much. It’s sweet that my local trails are quiet. It’s dope that I see my fave pros in Whistler walking around normally and I can go up to them and say hi. No need to buy tickets to crankworx, UCI DH or XC events! Just walk up to the tape! My favourite NHL, NFL players and teams? Over $100 to watch them from the nosebleeds and there’s no way those guys are just chilling on a sidewalk patio because they’d get mobbed.

First Look: Rocky Mountain Updates Altitude & Instinct Powerplay Models with Dyname 4.0 motor
@islandforlife: Interesting comment about E-bikes being too heavy and a pain in the ass to whip around. Did you ever try one of the "light" e-bikes like Kenevo SL? The lighter ~40 pound e-bikes seem like a nice happy medium to me. I'm like you (and probably lots on the fence) in that I'll probably pedal unassisted for quite a few more years and wait for the ebikes to evolve more and prices to come down!

First Look: Rocky Mountain Updates Altitude & Instinct Powerplay Models with Dyname 4.0 motor
I appreciate the super clever design that RM have a "high pivot" that's integrated into the motor pulley. I'm also not looking for an E-bike but since they have different characteristics (heavy AF) and their popularity is exploding, I think regular mountain bikes will get the benefits of the R&D for suspension kinematics, suspension, brakes, drivetrains, frame and wheel strength, etc. Maybe I'll even get one in a few years!

First Look: Canyon's Revised Spectral Family Has a Wheel Size For Every Style
A zillion different combinations except no aluminum mullet bike or aluminum frame only. I also like riding smaller frames and there’s no small sized aluminum!

First Ride: 2022 Specialized Stumpjumper EVO Alloy - Adaptability Meets Affordability
@OpeSorryAbootThat: I love my Ripmo AF, it's such a sick bike and still great price a couple years later! I was just looking thru the Ibis's warranty and I'm pretty pumped on 7 year rim warranty. I think for my other bikes I'd buy the $500usd aluminum Ibis wheels as they're reasonably weighted and rim warranty is pretty sweet... and I'm too cheap for We Are One or other Carbon wheels w life time warranty

Video: Meta Power 29 vs 160E vs Range VLT vs Kenevo SL - Field Test Roundtable
Thanks for all the hard work put into field test! Next year, can you just focus your time / energy on non-Ebikes? I liked hearing/ learning about them but frankly I'm pretty turned off them; E-bikes just aren't my jam. **cue the Outside comments** It seemed like a ton of energy for you guys to do reviews, videos, timed laps, impossible climbs, etc. I'd rather that time and energy being put into the enduro / trail / downcountry bike field tests and reviews. Maybe you can do a vote: do viewers want to see an e-bike field test next year?

Field Test: 2022 YT Capra - The Speedy All-Rounder
@Svinyard: I'm a believer of McCormick's RAD. My new(ish) bike: Medium Ripmo AF. Reach 455. The reach and front center feel annoyingly long. Calculate the bike's RAD -> way too long for my height 5'8" (and yes I did all the adjustments w stems, spacers and bars) My old medium 2016 Kona Process felt perfect. Calculate the RAD and it's perfect for my height. Reach 435mm. Check my roadbike, fatbike, and dirtjumper and they all have the perfect RAD. Today's bikes - as far as the reach measurement - are 1 size larger than bikes from 3 years ago. To me, the "longer" part of "longer, lower, slacker" means longer wheelbase through a slacker headtube angle while maintaining the same reach. DH bikes' HTA's are usually ~63.5 and I don't think we'll be able to go much slacker than that as DH bikes haven't really slackened at all over the years. Curious what PB thinks of that super slack Transition! Grim donut is an extreme example of "too slack".
