Video: Thredbo DH National Course Preview with Kye A'Hern & Tegan Cruz
Amazing how they charge so easily through the techy bits in the trees. They are very difficult. I rode that Cannonball run in mid Jan. Looks like some trail fairy diversions in place and a bit of dirt spread over some of the rockier bits.

Opinion: The Big Short - Smaller Wheels Don't Require Shorter Chainstays
My old-geometry 2014 Fuel ex 29er had a very short reach, looooooooong stem. Mega-steep head 69.5 angle and 455mm chainstays. It felt longer at the back than the front. It was unbalanced and scary when descending steep stuff. Current 29er hardtail has nice short 430mm chainstay, long reach, 66 head angle. Simple. Very balanced. I am not one of these riders who likes to "meddle with dials". My bike has a fork that is set perfectly and a dropper that goes up and down. It. Just. Works.

VHS Announces V-3 Chainstay Tape
I use the vhs 2.0 tape on my hardtail. Works great. Keeps chain slap quiet. Strong glue, so need to get it right when you apply . Recommended.

Tested: Do Short Cranks Work For Tall Riders?
My experience riding flat pedals on a new 29er trail hardtail with 175's. The thighs burnt more with the 175's as expected but one unexpected negative was when I was spinning higher cadence on super bumpy terrain, my foot slipped off the pedal! I put this down to having to shift weight more from side to side and thus slightly off the pedal at the high point of the pedal stroke. I swapped to 170's, feel much more comfortable and have not had this happen again.

Pinarello Releases New Dogma XC Hardtail
I suppose the triangle near the crank helps move the seat tube forward of the BB, so that is a pass. The rest is just weird for the sake of weird
