First Look: Actofive Unveils Fully CNC'd Aluminum P-Train
This one sparks a joy! Really good looking bike with proper geometry. I would like even more travel on same platform. Rear triangle is very cool, liked the idea when Hope HB-160 was released. Really keen to try high pivot "pedally-bike". Balfa BB7 was a really good dh bike back then. Good to see idler pulleys to come back!

First Ride: 2021 Trek Slash - Now With Snack Storage
First pic says it all, i did the same thing with my old Slash 29. What a dissapointment. I expected even steeper than previous aluminium Slash and something as progressive what old Slash 29 was at the time of release, a gamechanger. Seems like they didn't get the memo that Enduro racebike has to climb to start of the stage. Seated position needs to be upright, short and on top of bb, not behind it. Yes that comes with lack of flat trail comfort and more pressure on hands, but endurobike gets pedalled mostly up and down the hill anyway. Upright climbing position helps to breathe more easy and recover before next stage than hip folded like switchblade. Reach numbers are also tad too short, but managable.

11 Riding Glasses Ridden & Rated
+1 for Bolle safety glasses. I have used Silium-model for few years they are around 20€ and you can get them clear and sunglass versions. They have very good antifog but like any other glasses it wears out in a time, when you wash them. I have also tested cheap models like in this rewiev, but every one of cheap ones i tested the antifog didn´t work

CyclingTips Digest: Harrison Ford E-bike Denial, Gravel Bike Field Test, Plague Updates, Women's TdF, Fraud, & More
Well, it is fun and welcome variation to riding MTB. Also it is good training. Riding trails on gravelbike not so much, but exploring local gravelroads and doubletracks is actually so much fun. Planning routes, sometimes getting lost, sometimes finding absolute blast routes, it can be pretty addictive. Got my gravelbike couple years back and it has turned one of the best biking related purchases i´ve done.

First Look: Trek's New 2019 Remedy
Trek has made damn good job speccin their bikes lately. I bought 9.8 Slash in 2017. Now 2019 model has carbon wheels and crancks instead of aluminium for the same price as 2017. They even have answered the need of longer dropper posts for larger sizes. Now only thing they have to do is get rid of Sram brakes.
