Bike Check: Richie Rude's All-New SB150 29er
The summary says he runs Stans Aluminum rims, but the photos and all of Rude's riding I have seen have been DT.

Where's the New XTR? 8 Questions With Nick Murdick, Shimano MTB Product Manager
I could see going to a 2x for some reasons you mentioned, but definitely not 3x. The FD is just more of a pain always for me, in adjustment, finickiness, and general noise level. I also would very much worry about hitting the 3rd ring getting over things. It really just comes down to preference and even saying 3x is "for mountain bikers who ride actual mountains" just comes off as snotty and pretentious. Plus, your anecdotal evidence is just that, anecdotal. It may have been pedaling uphill with the dualie was harder because of the gearing and that infernal 1x, or because your other bike has your preferred setup/configuration, is your bike and thus more dialed, and is obviously going to take the climbs better and more efficiently since it is a hardtail. You don't have to hate 1x, love 3x, or fart rainbows to be able to share your opinions without being condescending.

I believe he ended up 55th, which is a killer result and improvement! So stoked for him.

Final Results: EWS Whistler 2018
Congrats, Adam! While short of the top 50 goal, still a totally killer performance! I can't imagine the jitters you would have had in this race after going through the privateer process, and I commend you for a stellar performance!

Final Results: EWS Whistler 2018
@jzPV: Ah, good insight. According to the link to Trailforks for Stage 1, it is 1 mile long. The fastest time is just over 6 mins. That seems, to @humoroususername's comment, super fast. I wonder if the stage is truly longer than the trailforks segment they posted.

@humoroususername: What about the quote you shared suggests an average speed of 72kph? It sounds like, regardless of their speeds, they ended up with only 3 seconds between them in their overall stage time.

Review: Enve's New M7 Carbon Handlebar & Stem
I dabbled in the 35 clamp bar/stems and found them too damn stiff and am back on 31.8. Much better feel for me.

Review: e*thirteen's Updated TRS Race 29'' Tire
What casings are you running? I dislike EXO, but love DoubleDown and just this past weekend put a DH casing on the rear with a DD on front. It is glorious. I am of the opinion that I would rather add that extra weight for piece of mind. I was also racing enduro on them and almost exclusively in dusty and rocky conditions.

Photo Report: XCC Short Track - Vallnord World Cup 2018
I think you would be surprised at the difficulty of what they do. They take technical tracks(not like DH or Enduro, but still technical) at high speeds, totally winded, and with skinny tires and high seatposts. It is impressive. I still prefer the enduro and DH disciplines, but bikes are cool and XC is no exception.

Comparison Test: Are Wider Rims Better? We Try 4 Different Widths
Playing with the tire pressure interests me, but adds a huge variable to something like this. I wonder if you took 30/35mm rims and then did incremental tire pressures if you would change your mind? I also want to know opinions of WC DH folks. I see a whole lot of DT EX471 wheels being run, which have a 25mm internal width, on WC DH tracks. What is drawing those insanely fast riders to the opposite side of the width spectrum? Is it that they run big DH casings and can rely more on that for support in corners? Great article and experiment, though, I love this kind of content.
