Field Test: Enduro vs Force 29 vs Slayer vs Mojo HD5 vs SB165 - 2020 Enduro Bikes
" If you’re looking for outright speed then you may want to look at the SB150 or elsewhere" Doesn't this kind of seem to contradict the fact that the SB165 was one test riders fastest bike and being middle of the pack (2% behind) the second test riders?

Nordest Cycles Introduce New Bardino 2 Steel Enduro Hardtail
That right angle has to stay perpendicular to the ground, so as the fork compresses and the whole frame is effectively rotating clockwise around the rear axle, that angle is not rotating with it. So for reach (G), the vertical line would get shorter, and the horizontal line would get longer to keep the right angle between the BB and headset connected (since it can't rotate).

Opinion: The Eagle Has Landed
@Uuno: Yeah, I honestly couldn't really give a shit about 12 speeds. Fuck, give me 8 speeds with 10-42 cassette range and I'd be happy. Easy 4 tooth jumps between each cog and that'd be perfect.

Video: This Crash Couldn’t Stop Nicholi Rogatkin - Red Bull Rampage 2015
I wouldn't necessarily say they need to be compensated... but I do think Red Bull should offer health insurance to all the participants. Red Bull clearly makes a shit ton of money off of this event (hence why they keep doing it)... the least they could do is make sure riders lives aren't ruined (as much) if something goes wrong. They don't need to necessarily enrich them, but there should be a safety net IMO.

Pinkbike Poll: Should All Competitors Be Compensated at the Red Bull Rampage?
"But they cover the logistics and came up with the idea. Who pays other professional athletes? Not the venue where they play. It's the team, which has sponsors. A good sponsor takes care of their athlete. Blame the industry, not the company that created the venue." You really can't compare this to most other sports because it's just not the same. Not too many other sports are set up to have just a bunch of individual events. There's normally a league of some sort and a players union independent from the actual teams and sponsors that covers these riders. Also, whose to say these riders even have teams? Sure most do, but they could easily invite people that don't have teams. And even if someone has an individual sponsor, a company throwing a guy a free bike every year isn't really a "team".

From DH Bikes to Super Boots: Randoms - Interbike 2015
Those Norco Ranges look awesome, but I find the pricing on them a little insane. I mean, it's not like $9000 for a full carbon bike is unheard of these days... but you'd think that if you're dropping almost 10G's on something, it'd at least come with a top of the line fork. $9000 and you don't even get a kashima fork with full (HS and LS) compression adjustments? Seems like an odd choice.

Prototype Morpheus DH Bike - Crankworx Whistler 2015
I think that's just because our sense of price has been so warped by years of $10,000 bikes. $5500 USD isn't cheap. It's not uber expensive, but it sure as hell isn't cheap. If the YT Teus is anything to go by, it's that you can easily have a strong and light DH bike for ~$5000.

Prototype Morpheus DH Bike - Crankworx Whistler 2015
>"Carbon Kona Operator is $4899 CAD" Boxxer RC vs Fox 40 RC2 Kage vs Fox DHX2 Zee VS SixC cranks and X0DH I'd say the extra $600 is well worth it. >Carbon Devinci Wilson is $4099CAD Boxxer RC vs Fox 40 RC2 Kage vs DHX2 Zee vs Carbon SixC and X0DH Elixir 5 vs Guides Those really weren't the best comparisons. The Morpheus is WAAAYYY better specced. Shit, you could buy the Morpheus, buy the new Wilson 27.5 frameset for $2700, and have a bike specced as well (Arguably better) as the $7000 Wilson with an extra Carbon Conspiracy frame as a backup (if for some reason you really didn't want the Morpheus frame).
