The Short, Turbulent Life of URT Suspension
"Cross Country was dead" in 1997?! Decline/death was more like 2001-3.

Suspension Travel - What's Your Ideal Amount? - Pinkbike Poll
All depends on wheel size. Generally 10mm less if talking 29 wheel. Pole should be setup based on wheel size.

Specialized Hillbilly Grid Tire - Review
I've personally never had a specialized bead tear out. But that said, yes, these are all new casings, designs and compounds. Much different tires.

Specialized Hillbilly Grid Tire - Review
@rich2007 @willaasss You're telling us that you have multiple rides on a 'new' Hillbilly?? They JUST came available to the public. People think they've been buying the new one, but are buying the old. And you can still buy old in most places. And Will, it sounds like you're talking about your experience with the old Hillbilly. This tire is a new casing, new compound, new design. Shares virtually nothing with the previous version.

2018 BC Enduro Series - What's Next!?
Sounds like there are lots of positive changes, but a few negatives that stickout... 'No Awards Ceremony, No Post Event Food/Drink available, No Pro Class ("these races aren't for pros"), No race email; relying on Facebook for communication. Looks like they're taking a really good high-level provincial series and making it individual sandlot races. A loss on a few levels.

Ridden and Rated: 7 Long-Travel 29ers
It's important for these reviewers to review the top end bikes, because they should be a no-compromise example of the bike. What they SHOULD be reviewing is the bike frame. We all know how a Pike of 34 or 36 or SRAM 1x performs, these reviews need to be about the frame/ride. The only major difference between these bikes is the chassis in most cases. And that's pretty much all the reviewer and reader should be caring about. And keeping with that thought, I think it's ridiculous that they're using tread volume or pattern of the tires as a con or even a part of the review. This is the first thing anyone buying a new bike should evaluate for there riding and terrain and keep or swap out. In fact, all of these bikes should be tested using the same tires to level the playing field and take out variables that will almost always change once the bike is in the customer's hands. Note what tires the bike ships with, and note what level of tire this bike should ship with. But don't consider a poor rear tire for your riding zone as a 'con' on a $8,000 bike--that's a waste of a review.

Imagine how much harder Jesse could shred if his DHF was mounted in the correct direction.

Randoms Round 1: New Pedals, Powermeters, and More - Interbike 2017
These left-side crank power meter manufactures need to realize the new crop of bikes are boost and built for big tire clearance. There isn't room anymore for 1/3" meter box hanging off the insider of the crank arm.

Greg Minnaar's Broken Santa Cruz V10 - Val di Sole DH World Cup 2017
@davetrumpore: Excellent point Dave, very sad state of affairs. Please understand, I'm not suggesting that they take them for the reason of posting straight away to Instagram and Pinkbike---for that exact reason. It's the fact that they didn't take them (even if kept to themselves) at all, and further, put their cameras down to cover the bike up with a towel, is what was troubling to me. As a photojournalist myself, it made me uneasy, as I consider you guys to be photojournalists of these events since there are no large (AP, etc.) news media outlets covering this sport.
