First Look: Intense's New 29er DH Bike
Thats a beautiful bike! Long live beautiful CNC work! accessing the lower shock bolt looks like a pain though.

Ban the Berms? – Opinion
I wouldn't say I'm anti-berms. But I certainly feel theres such a thing as too much trail work. I personally will choose a naturally flowing and technical trail over a buffed and bermy roller coaster type trail on most days. I would also agree with this article in the sense that small subtly notched snyper berms are far more satisfying overall than rolling around multiple 3ft+ walls of packed dirt.

Lourdes Track Preview With Brendog and Gaetan - Video
The fact that the podium guys are separated by 10th of a second and often less, on tracks like this is amazing. It really shows how precise and on the edge these guys have to be to win a WC these days. These guys are avoiding mistakes that us mere mortals wouldn't even register as a mistake. Humbling

The Edge of 17 - Your DH World Cup 2017 Preview
With 29r dh bikes gaining traction it probably wont take long for racers to want more stopping power for those wagon wheels. I predict the new Boost Post Mount standard and Plus rotors in the near future....because "New Standards" are the new standard.

Formula CTS Technology – New Approach to Fork Tuning
Similar to what Marzocchi tried to do with tuneable shim stacks amd varying weight ti springs. And like Marzocchi you probably wont be able to actually find these parts for sale anywhere.

Downhill Results - Sea Otter Classic 2017
I dont think anyone should be reading into these results for the WC guys. Theres no benefit for them to push hard at the odd-ball Sea Otter track and risk a crash right before their real season starts.

very very cool. Adapted cycling can change the lives of so many less fortunate people. This is what the industry needs more of.

Polygon Square One EX9 and its R3ACT Suspension - Where it Came From and How it Works
This is reminiscent of the old Maverick bikes in a way. Although drastically different of course. A little funky looking at first but it quickly grows on ya. Would love to give it a whirl. Sounds promising.
