Video: Claudio Caluori Tries to Keep up With Nino Schurter on his Home Trails
The cornering speed around those switchbacks is unreal.

Video: Does Your Suspension Really Work Better Without a Chain?
@VorsprungSuspension, one thing I can't get my head around: Thinking of a split pivot bike, which can be thought of as a single pivot bike (because it essentially is) or as a specil case of a horst link design with the rear axle and horst link concentrical. If I draw the IC (which still should be valid), the IC will end up at a different place than the main pivot, also resulting in a different (usually lower) anti squat and anti rise. How can this be?

I had a SID XL. It did not work well for very long.

Burning Question: How Do We Get More Women To Work in the Bike Industry?
Working in this industry since more than 10 years, I think the main reason for the gender disbalance is a lack of opportunities to hire them. For a big part of jobs in the industry it is important to be a rider. Unfortunately the number of female riders is still far below 50% in many parts of the world. But it is better than in engineering. During my studies, less than 10% of students were female. And I see this clearly reflected when looking at gender equality through different departments in the companies I worked for. The less being an engineer and being a rider is a requirement for the job, the more women you will see. From close to zero in engineering to almost equal numbers in sales or marketing to more women in logistics, purchasing, finance or HR. Changing this means getting more women into the sport and more women getting into studying engineering. Should we encourage that? I think for sure. What if they choose other sports or studies despite the best efforts to get them in? I think that is fine too. I think there are other groups of people that are much more underrepresented, to a shocking degree. I can honestly not remember meeting someone of the black community working in the industry. Not a single one within probably thousands of people I met. And this is probably much less so by choice than by unequal opportunities. It also seems to be difficult place to be for gay men as I am only aware of two in the industry, but then that is something that is not as obvious when meeting people.

New Dual Slalom Track plus Updated Downhill and Dual Speed and Style Courses for Crankworx Rotorua
I would hope the UCI would wake up and remember how attractive and simple those DS races were. They should bring it back as a pre-event for DH WCs, similar XC Eliminator. Make the courses rough enough so Enduro bikes are suitable, and I am sure the sponsors would be totally behind it as well.

Video: Clipless vs. Flat Pedals - The Pros and Cons of Both
@gnarlysipes: That claim really bugged me. As far as I am aware, almost all studies on this topic show that there is actually close to no energy saving when clipped in. What I remember is a study that showed that efficiency actually goes up by focussing on your downstroke. Where clipless pedal surely have an advantage is that your foot is always positioned perfectly, and you can put power down on rough terrain.

Review: 2020 Kona Process 134 CR/DL 29 - A Quick Cornering Trail Bike
I am so glad there are brands not following the long or size-specific chainstay length. I typically ride a size L and the shorter the chainstays are the happier I am. It is probably not the fastest, but surely the most fun.

Ghost Shifts Production of Carbon Fibre Hardtails From Asia to Belgium's Rein4ced
@makripper: you are correct until some point between the nineties and now. Since Taiwan has free elections and is now run for the 4th term by a non-KMT president (and you probably could count Lee Teng-Hui into that as well), calling it run by the old Chinese government is not a very appropriate description of the situation.
