The New YT Capra - Everything You Need to Know
I, too, want to know. They pretty often ride trails down here in southern CA, and I want to find them and ride them, too! I wish they included that information more often, honestly. The Santa's Village spot is up (or down for you I assume) by lake arrowhead. I rode there for the first time last weekend and it was pretty fun.

The New YT Capra - Everything You Need to Know
Another comment suggested that the EU prices include the VAT, while US prices do not include tax yet as it depends on which state it goes it. I don't actually know, though.

The New YT Capra - Everything You Need to Know
I've got a '17 Nomad and a '17 KTM Myroon. They are, as you might guess, very different bikes that cover an incredibly broad range of uses. Plus, I can ride many of the same trails on them and get wholly different experiences. I love those two bikes. I have started envisioning myself with something in the 140-150mm range, maybe even 29er. My expectations is that that would push the Nomad out of favor a lot except for park days or some gnarlier local stuff.

Shimano Announces 4-Piston XT Brake Caliper
@thenotoriousmic: That makes sense since you moved to a bigger brake that is more akin to running Saints from the Shimano lineup. I will end up with bigger brakes on the Nomad here pretty soon, but the XTs are fantastic for the hardtail.

Shimano Announces 4-Piston XT Brake Caliper
@thenotoriousmic: Yeah, they work well and I have had no issues so far. I have been on the cusp of getting a Saint or Zee for the front the last couple weeks. The difference especially occurred to me when I got an XC hardtail that came with XTs and they felt like the perfect amount of brake. I then realized the Nomad could use at least a 4pot in front.

Stan’s NoTubes Introduces Crest CB7 and Arch CB7 Rims and Wheelsets
@vaedwards: Hell, I put a set of DT EX471 laced to 350s on my XC bike. The wheels that came with it are pretty lame, 20mm internal, butted, and flimsy. Sometimes I can't help but ride my 100mm carbon xc hardtail like my Nomad, so I got beefier rims. Plus, I'm 200lb and love riding fast, technical rocky trails

Tech Talks: Handlebar Trimming 101, Presented by Park Tool – Video
I use the clamp from an old set of lockon grips as my guide and a 30TPI hacksaw. It has worked swimmingly.

You want the dropper fully extended so the internal mechanism is not having to hold the bike up, and make sure the clamp is clean so as not to scratch the stanchion and it is totally fine.

Win a Flow MK3 Wheelset and Quart of Sealant - Pinkbike's Advent Calendar Giveaway
Funny, I just rode the last ride on my mk3 wheelset yesterday and took them apart to re-use the hub. I would ride another pair for sure! Though I may try different hoops this time.

I swear I am going to read it, but I had to comment on the 'test-blog.html'. A fine test indeed!
