Do any of these colors actually go together? Bit much in my eyes…

Short Track Photo Epic: Here Comes The Sun - Albstadt XC World Cup 2021
Hilarious about the downvoting about shaving for vanity reasons. Stop lying to yourself. You don’t proactively shave your legs every week for the sole reason of the rare possibility of leg injury that could come at an unpredictable time. It’s like wearing a helmet while driving a car. Give us a break. Shave your legs or not, who cares, at least don’t pretend it’s for injury prevention.

Comparing Anne Terpstra & Nadine Rieder's Ghost Lector FS Race Bikes - Albstadt XC World Cup 2021
The stiffness is a red herring. If you asked anybody 30 to 100 years ago what bike wheels would look like, they would say this.So obviously with any carbon structure you can build in flex where you want it; I anticipate sub 1000g wheel sets like this in the near future and they will blow your mind. I can't wait.

Short Track Photo Epic: Here Comes The Sun - Albstadt XC World Cup 2021
The simple answer is that there is this perception of looking good and feeling faster while wearing full Lycra. Lycra is the male version of lingerie. When you’re fit as hell and you put on a skinsuit, you don’t want hairy limbs sticking out. It’s like becoming an elite performance persona. Of course you would not have a desire to shave for enduro or gravel riding, the clothing doesn’t demand it.

Field Trip: Stoic vs Sentier vs Two Stroke vs Fluid vs Growler - Value Hardtail Roundtable
@deez-nucks: Not relevant bro and a little patronizing even though I know what you're getting at. If enduro bikes weigh 32lbs one can be forgiven for wondering where all that added bulk is coming from in the absence of shock and linkages.

What is this reality we live in that hardtails weigh 32lbs??????? I remember my first bike was a hard tail in the 90s and it weighed something like 24kbs out of the box. Does it not defeat the whole point of having one in the first place?

Thought Experiment: What Would It Take to Build a Sub-7kg Mountain Bike Using Only Stock Parts?
I would like to see a part 2 of this that attempts to build the lightest full sus bike with no compromised tires, brake discs, and shocks.
