Video: Mike vs Mike: Geometry Battle - Specialized Stumpjumper vs EVO
I think the EVO is targeted at Enduro racers who aren’t concerned about jibbing off every trail feature and whose priorities are central around speed and stability. Just different demographics with different priorities.

Bike Check: Dan Atherton's Prototype 29er DH Bike
@lozzerbiker: Perhaps, or maybe Robot Bike Co. knew entering a highly competitive market profit-sharing with the Athertons (who were looking to make more money by representing a company they had invested-interest in) was the better alternative to entering the market alone. In other words, you can make a little money on your own, or a lot of money sharing it with other people. It’s just business.

Suspension, Anti-Lock Brakes, and a Dropper Post Cable Kit - Taipei Cycle Show 2019
That’s not an ‘anti-lock’ device, that’s a pressure regulator. Nothing more. Anti-lock brakes are designed to allow for up to 100% of the braking force be applied and then release when lock-up is detected where as this device limits the maximal amount force (e.g., 70%). It’s dangerous. Don’t believe me? Imagine a water bottle rolled under your brake pedal and you need to slam on your brakes? How do you feel now?

MIPS Says WaveCel Helmet Technology Falls 'Far Below' Bontrager's Injury Prevention Claims
I see this as being one of two possible events — either MIPS tested the helmet and it outperformed their own products but fell below the ‘48x better’ claim, so MIPS is simply throwing dirt in the sandbox to create consumer doubt, or the Bontrager product actually doesn’t live-up to the ‘standards’ MIPS feels are adequate. Third-party testing along with universal standards of performance really is the answer. We saw this a few years ago when the EU standards emerged in response to sleeping bags not performing to their claimed temperatures. It was a safety concern then and it is a safety concern now. Time for government and policy?

Spotted: Prototype ‘Project Black’ 27.5/29 Specialized DH Bike - Crankworx Rotorua 2019
I was just thinking that. Specialized went from one of, if not the most complicated rear suspension designs to one of the simplist. I guess this is a return to form? Personally it looks heavy and unnecessarially complicated.

Now Finished: Ask Me Anything with Greg Minnaar
Do you think Honda should have continued to develop mountain bikes, or was their departure appropriate?

Ken Block's Glow in the Dark Specialized S-Works Stumpjumper
I really find it interesting how people such as Ken Block (a drifter) has established a brand and expanded into a social influincer, all the while feeling it’s entirely fake and disingenuous. I think if I was younger and more impressionable I might take it for face value, but now that I’m old and cynical and see videos like those MKBHD recently posted exposing celebrities including Oprah promoting Andriod tablets from an iPad that it honestly just makes me sad there’s so much money to be made flogging products. I guess that’s what you get in this ‘famous for being famous’ era we find ourselves in.
