Pimp My Bike – A Money Can't Buy Prize With Push Industries
So is this telemetry or just data acquisition? Can't see the point of telemetry. Nonetheless, great trip for the winner!

First Look: Intense's New 29er DH Bike
Fork and tire availability drive the market. Maxxis, Fox and Rock Sox stepped up.

First Look: Intense's New 29er DH Bike
Absolutely great looking beast. Intense, don't bother with carbon if you can keep it looking like this!

Pivot Mach 5.5 Carbon – First Ride
@R-trailking-S: This is always a hot topic and every tall rider I know My main two mtb rides are an XXL Tallboy 3c and an XL Honzo CR. Both are much longer than I've ridden in the past. The Tallboy is both longer in reach and slacker in STA (74 deg eSTA at my full saddle height) and I never have an issue with the switchbacks. My Honzo is a bit shorter in reach and has a 75 deg eSTA and I do bonk my knee on my shifter in some steep, tight switchbacks. This is also the nature of many of my favorite local trails. To complicate matters, the shorter stem / wider bar trend doesn't help (although both are good things IMO). Over the past few years with the longer and slacker geo, my saddle to bar distance has hardly changed but the bars sure come back farther when I turn a steep, tight uphill switchback.

Pivot Mach 5.5 Carbon – First Ride
@R-trailking-S: I agree that they can go steeper but 75 deg seems to be the limit IMO. I disagree that they can go do 77 deg without downsides. With a drastically steep seat angle like 77 deg, the reach needs to be far too long in order to avoid knee/handlebar contact on steep, switchback climbs. There is a balance to be had. I've owned a couple of bikes like this - nice steep seat angles but inadequate reach so constant knee bonking on shifters and bars. This is definitely exaggerated by my height at 6'5" though. I'm a time trialist and a mountain biker and I rarely move around on my TT machine except when cornering. The steep seat angle is solely to allow me to get more aero (opens up the hip angle).

Pivot Mach 5.5 Carbon – First Ride
@Lagr1980: yep, another bike with a STA that is too slack to balance the ride properly. Pivot, this is not a road bike, steepen the STA so the back end doesn't bag out on the steep climbs!

Spotted: Gee Atherton Aboard a Trek Session 29er
I don't know why any taller person wouldn't want to run 29" wheels in a bike park. They fit the geo of bigger bikes better (bb drop), they're more stable in the air and a taller person generally has the increased body mass to deal with the bigger wheels in the corners.
