Mondraker Foxy Carbon RR SL Review
@YouHadMeAtDrugs: Meaning...ASA is slack relative to ESA which is measured at an 'ideal'--applicable to almost no one--point? So that fit for a tall person with an effectively long inseam will be even more problematic? A more apt comparison in terms of fit, wheelbase, and wheel size woud be the 2018 Reign, which Kaz demo'd a couple of months ago. Or a TR Scout.

American Classic Calls It Quits... For Now
@WasatchEnduro: M1900/30 isn't decent? A little heavy at 2kg a set for 29", but still nicer than Flow S1?

Aaron Gwin – "As a Racer, You Just Want to Destroy People Every Weekend" - Video
@alexcgevans: 1:51. Your ears are fine, unless mine aren't. Omission of middle part of quotation could have been indicated by [...] and stuttering by dashes, but that's mostly academic.

2017 Pinkbike Awards - Advocates of the Year Winners
I'll believe Trek and Santa Cruz are environmental advocates when lifetime warranties become transferable to nonoriginal owners for $99. By including Patagonia in the awards, our mountain-dwelling host has confused the self-serving Award category--mtb advocacy--with environmental advocacy. Down here in the comments--ocean. Enjoy your oysters, gentlemen.

2017 Pinkbike Awards - Component of the Year Nominees
@Primoz: C'mon--that was supposed to be an apology. And an exercise! It's difficult to distinguish the trolls from the Troll around here. The geographic origin is correct even if the birth nationality isn't. He's the Slavoj Zizek of mtb commentary. Your position is somewhat vindicated by the voting. Still, until that day arrives, remember--a downvote is an upclick. It's maddening!

2018 Canyon Spectral - First Ride
@jclnv: It's a heavily recycled rant about putting 2.1" tires on your Enduro 29 to transform it into an XC bike. Also helpful to remove the Eagle drivetrain and follow his gym regimen. If I hadn't ridden a Pivot 5.5 in two sizes the other day I'd be as unconvinced as ever. That bike is XC-worthy even with a 2.6" DHF, though it's only 140mm rear and 650b. Superbly pointless!

2018 Canyon Spectral - First Ride
Looks like a smartphone. I need more plastic screwed into my plastic. Can't argue with their business model though, if they're flying reviewers to Portugal in order to confirm that Spectral is not made of sugar.

@BenPea: Seems ideal for big mountains, and is bash- and dirty finger friendly if that six ounces or whatever must be eliminated. Also, steel rings. Even in the steep little mountains here a 28t alloy 1x ring only lasts as long as a chain. Plus I bet the fast-wearing ring helps wear the chain more quickly. So, an extra $60 every six months or less for a new ring in addition to a new chain. Plus shifting on an XT 11-42 cassette starts to deteriorate after two chains have been worn out on it. And SRAM wants me to put a $350 cassette on there to boot? Or use a unit marketed as FULL-PIN? Forget it. If someone wants to argue that cycling in the mode with which Pinkbike concerns itself is White and economically elitist, and that Eagle is at the sharp end of that stick, I'm all ears. The overlap of American and Nazi eagle symbolism and the close ties that SRAM has with 'German engineering' aren't that much further in the background. Is it random that Waki received a somewhat conditional invitation to Munchen a few comments up?--Schweinfurt's just down the road. I'm guessing he won't be going for all the frei Bier on the continent. He's no dummy, nor brute, or he wouldn't need to toughen up so severely. Of course the Axis intersects Shimano, and 2x9=18.
