Trek Session 29 vs 27.5 – First Ride
The times are all over the place and then... Woop! Suddenly pieced together a run 8 seconds faster than any other 29r run... My theory regarding bigger wheels, based from my experience riding them, is that they are harder to manoeuvre pricesly, at a pro level this could be the difference between nailing the perfect line or losing speed; destroying your wheel on a rock or narrowly avoiding it... If you take a fair assessment of the data presented, disregard the first two runs, irrespective of the bike, as 'learning the track', you're left with the 3 best runs feom each wheel size. You have a 7 second variation in times with 650b and a 13.3sec variation with 29. This part of the data is huge, it confirms exactly what I always thought, 29ers might be ultimately capable of a quicker run, but due to being cumbersome and awkward, they result in far more inconsistent runs times and ergo, more chance of crashing, flatting or breaking a wheel. Really dont know how many pros, in a sport that measures overall performance throughout a whole season, are going to trade consistency over pot luck.

Trek Session 27.5 - First Look
@BarnaK: if you think about it, the rear axle moves a certain amount, the shock compresses a certain amount... Whether the whole shock moves or remains fixed during that process is entirely irrelevant and affects exactly nothing, the whole thing was a marketing gimmick that lots of brands jumped on for a while with their own 'floating shock' variations, the idea was pointless but had all manner of ridiculous claims attributed to it... but you can believe whatever marketing shyte that appeals really.

Pimp My Bike – A Money Can't Buy Prize With Push Industries
@pbuser2299: don't worry about the downvotes mate, bloody foreigners, try cracking a joke using English humour outside of the UK and you'll be left with blank confused faces staring back at you. I'm an English ex-pat, I literally just don't ever make jokes anymore, it's too painful, I used to be a funny guy once upon a time.

This needs to happen with most brands over here thanks to poor brand representation from a lot of 'dustributers', Orange bikes, are you listening?

Ban the Berms? – Opinion
@Kramz: yeh I gave up riding for 3 years after some injuries, used to ride a lot of dh and DJ and hit a few 40ft jumps back then. Now I've got back into it I avoid hitting any jumps over 10-15ft now albeit all my injuries were on small jumps or rock gardens. Having family responsibilities makes you want to slow down too. Now I just concentrate on speed, fitness and cornering technique and ride mainly trail stuff - you don't have to go feeble, just refocus and keep shredding! There's no joy in it for me if I'm not going as fast as possible down the hills.

Keen to know how you replicated Rogatkin's crash to measure the impact forces? Did you just fit the helmet to a crazy Russian pitbull and fire it out of an artillery cannon at a cliff face? ....Need details!!
