Trek Session 29 vs 27.5 – First Ride
Statistically the sample size is not large enough to draw any conclusion. But as you have to remove outliers first then then clear rogue 2nd section on the 29 trek must be removed as it was not repeatable. Doing this would make the 275 faster than the 29. The text states that from the first corner of the first run that the 29 was faster and smoother but the data doest show this. These tests would be good if you added in the old 26 also to have a true comparison of progress over the last few years or maybe the lack of progress. Who knows.

Does Boost Spacing Really Make a Stronger Wheel?
I opneed this expecting to see a FEA report. Pre and post stress test results table. Spoke tension analysis. Times to show me they were faster. Analysis on stiffness v speed. Complete statistical analysis, declaration of materials and thicknesses etc. Come on bike industry. Put some engineering and some science in behind this. :)

It's Alive: Santa Cruz Reveals the V10 29er
I have been waiting for this. I think 2 years and I will hang up my 26" rig for a 29er and miss out the middle fad of 27.5/650B. The analysis of results this weekend will be interesting for sure. Give it 4 years and 27.5 will be worthless like 26 is just now compared to 27.5. I would reset back to 26" and keep the relative difference between hole size and wheels interesting.

The Dudes of Hazzard: Slay the Brown Serpent – Video
@elefantenvogel: I agree that it wasn't the same as an epic shred video put together with the riders film crew and edited shots etc. But for a self film of 3 elites having fun and showing that they are the same as everybody else. It was great to see. If only other top riders showed their human side and were less scripted. Wouldn't that be great.

@chrismac70: it's not the length that matters. It's what you do with it that counts. That's a ride to me. How many as did they do all day and now did they get there

@SwintOrSlude: torridon is great. If you are around the inverness area there is lots of shorter stuffy can ride also that's worth it.
