Video: Remy Metailler & Claire Buchar Ride Whistler Jank
Ha! I recall listening to a podcast with Jesse Melamed, I think it was Inside Line or maybe Downtime last winter driving up the hill for a ski day, and I think he was talking about his dad out there building this by himself with a bunch of come-alongs, and gear. Pretty cool to see the work, impressive for sure.

Video: Lessons Learned From 30 Days On A Hardtail With Tom Bradshaw
Nice video, really enjoy riding my hardtail and makes going back to the FS even better. The progressive geo hardtails are lots of fun, love my GG Pedalhead w/ 150mm fork and CushCore in the rear, it can ride just about anything my FS can. I'm not so sure I'd want to go back to riding an XC or old style hardtail anytime though.

Specialized Kenevo SL Launch Video - Monsters vs Bikes
Just watched [i]The Mitchells vs. The Machines[/i] on Netflix the other evening with the kids for family movie night, can't help but think of it while watching this ad. "We should put a chip in everything!"

Video: Remi Gauvin Tests Medium & Large Size Frames Back to Back
@zombiejack33: "The compromise is less stability at high speeds. I have to be honest with myself and I know I will never go speeds that these pros do..." 100% agree. As much as the marketing and trends work on me, I've come to realize that I don't go fast enough to notice the difference in stability between sizes/lengths, but I do notice that difference when cornering, climbing, featuring, etc. and 99% of the time I much prefer the more nimble, playful feel, to something that feels like a semi-truck just barreling down hill smashing through rocks and roots. To each their own, I've found ~1250mm wheelbase is about the top end for me at 5'11", my size "Large" Capra w/ 460mm reach is pretty spot on for me.

Video: Remi Gauvin Tests Medium & Large Size Frames Back to Back
"Bikes are getting longer, lower, slacker but Remi has stayed the same." Sam Hill has a good quote on his recent Inside Line podcast/Vital interview along these lines. Paraphrasing, "A medium man ain't gettin' any bigger, so why is a medium bike getting bigger?"

Video and Race Report: The Maxxis Eastern States Cup is Back
I didn't do that bad, but I put a huge flat spot in an LG1 AL rim that came stock on my bike. Replaced it with a carbon E13 rim, which is super solid, too stiff for some though.
