Video: First Practice Sends from Red Bull Hardline 2024
@Nico16b: Wonder what kind of interesting shock rigging they've tried with those unused mounts on the front triangle. I guess it could be to try different shock leverage ratio curves, but could possibly open up multi-shock wildness. They've definitely tried going down the two-shock road before.

Video: Craig Evans' First Full Run POV at Red Bull Hardline 2024
Yeah, my thought process was definitely something like "hmmm...gopro effect aside, I might be able to pick my way down this so far if it was dry and I went waaay slower....OH MY GOD"

Value Field Test: Marin San Quentin 3 - The Good Life Behind Bars
@sportstuff: It's the idea that on a full-suspension bike, the whole bike moves vertically at once through big landing impacts or g-force compressions while a hardtail only dives on the front, effectively steepening the headtube angle in those situations. Called the stapler effect because the bike moves like a stapler being compressed, pivoting around the rear axle. Note that it's much less of an issue for generally handling on rough terrain as full-suspension bikes and hardtails both take on impacts from things like roots one wheel at a time. But it can still have some affect on the ride when the object bucks the back end up, momentarily increasing the head angle.

Value Field Test: Devinci Kobain - Hardtail Nirvana
Can confirm that the Sunrace cassette is HG. A friend of mine picked up one of these as his second bike (and is loving it) and had a nice set of wheels to swap on it but had to get an MS cassette to complete the upgrade.

Review: One Year on the Liv Intrigue LT Advanced Pro 1
Buddy of mine wanted a Norco Optic at the beginning of the pandemic but they were mostly sold already. Found a women's version in his size (norco used to do women-specific variants of their bikes). He looked over the specs and the only differences were colour, grips, and maybe a 780 bar instead of 800 or something like that. So he went for it. The colour ended up being everyone's favourite thing about his bike and he'd get compliments and questions about it all the time. It looked soo good: https://www.norco.com/bike-archives/2020/optic-c2-womens/

Review: The Revel Rascal V2 is a Live Wire Trail Bike
Right? My bike is now 5 years old and still as good as anything currently on the market.

Review: The Revel Rascal V2 is a Live Wire Trail Bike
"I do feel that bikes have plateaued with much of the geometry, most bikes are very good angles wise these days and the harder part is finding the right sizing to allow the rider to integrate perfectly." For sure. My 2019 bike was a fairly progressive new model at the time and I loved it from day 1. Now it's pretty normal in terms of geo and suspension characteristics and rides as well as ever. The problem now is that I like new bikes, but can't in any way justify one while mine is still just as good as anything coming out today.

Hidden Treasures From the 'For Sale' Fence at Sea Otter 2024
"The leap between 2010 and 2017 was much bigger than 2017 to now." So true. Going from my 2016 bike with a slightly-dated-but-current-enough design to a newly-designed bike from a progressive company in 2019 was a HUGE change, but that 2019 bike is still essentially current in 2024 despite now being a generation out of date.
