Video: SDG Launches the Bel-Air V3 Saddle - 25 Years of Evolution
@DoubleCrownAddict: One thing I can never understand looking back on it is why early-to-mid-90's DH race footage always features such high saddle positions. I started riding in '96 and it was obvious to me right away that it was easier and more fun dropping the seat for longer descents then putting it back up after. And that was just on my local southern Ontario trails. Leaving your seat up for a dedicated DH run seemed weird even then and now just looks insane.

Video: Claudio Faces his Fear of Heights on Exposed Swiss Alpine Singletrack
I know a lot of people really like Gee's (and they are really good) but I do miss Claudio's commentary. I want both really. Gee's for the exposure to a racer's mindset and Claudio's to help me relate watching someone who's kindof almost human doing these runs.

Bike Check: Jason Momoa's Aquaman Themed Specialized Turbo Levo
That's all well and good, but am I the only one that was taken aback at how much he looks like Peter Dinklage in the shot where he has the helmet on?

Forbidden Bike Co. Introduce Ziggy Link For Mullet Conversions
It's not my thing either (or maybe it is and I just need to try it) but I love the idea of a relatively affordable way to set one up without replacing the whole frame or running a stock 29er frame too low.

First Look: Shimano's New Deore 12-Speed Group & Other 2021 Updates
As long as they're not cheap bearings or a trash design like a lot of low-end, sealed-bearing hubs. My XT hubs might be a bit trickier to service, but as long as I keep an eye on them, they'll probably outlive my bike. I can't say the same for some of the lower-end Novatech or Formula stuff I've seen over the years. Disclaimer: Novatech and Formula also make lots of better quality stuff that's just fine. Also, we're talking about Shimano so I'd expect these Deore Hubs be better than most hubs at the same price point.

So now the question will be if SLX is still the best value in drivetrains or is Deore going to be to SLX what SLX is to XT: basically the same except for a few grams and a rubber thumb pad on the shifter.

The 2020 Last Tarvo Claims to be the Lightest Enduro Frame Ever
My Felt Decree is still going strong after 3.5 years on a similar design. Bike is stiff as hell laterally and the suspension works quite well.

From the sounds of it, they've shaved weight in pretty reasonable ways: flex stays, no gluing, and no paint needed. I'm not sure if they cut material to get that weight right down, but the three methods listed above are all pretty tried and tested.

Now THAT Was a Bike: Psycle Werks Wild Hare
@DavidSA: Oh yeah, those helped a lot. Remember when the difference between cheap and expensive rims was $30-40 extra for the ceramic-coated version?
