Video: Welcome to the 2022 Fall Field Test
@Dogl0rd: I've lost count of the number of great rides which were spoilt by turn initiation being 0.5% harder.

Video: Welcome to the 2022 Fall Field Test
I'm one of those people who is happy with alloy MTB frames. I have nothing whatsoever against carbon, the cost/benefit equation simply does not appeal to me. Its funny how carbon mtb frames and related prices have gone from crazy exotic to mainstream. Trek used to offer the alloy Fuel EX 9 with alloy, XT and good suspension vs the EX 9.7 (same price) with carbon but cheaper components. It was a no brainer for me to go with the EX 9. Still is. Based on this - I think the Fluid FS A1 is an ideal bike. Looking forward to the review.

Norco Restarts Factory DH Race Team for 2023
I love my Norco Fluid HT. I'm somewhat fortunate that the dark colour means that the Canadian maple leaf on the seat tube is barely visible. Hence I rarely get asked related questions about; wearing dark coloured face paint, dressing up in Indian clothing or assaulting women.

Opinion: What Are Your Worst Bike Habits?
Using flat pedals on my hardtail and spinning far too fast in a too-low gear on bumpy terrain. Due to the relative lack of torque on the pedals, a big enough bump can lead to a foot coming off and a pedal to the shin.

Opinion: Group Rides Are the Worst
Got a friend who is happy going for a multi hour cruise along a local fire road on our hardtails. No tech or singletrack whatsovever. Got other MTB friends who would recoil at such a "boring" ride. I'm glad I have options.

Opinion: Group Rides Are the Worst
I like this article. a few thoughts: - My time is limited. Most weekday MTB or road rides are solo - I'm comfortable with group rides (max 3 others) having stops and chats. Just go in with the concept that its a catchup with a bit of riding - I will do weekend group rides starting early (5:45AM). But I know already who will join and who wont: Friends with young children = "sure, no problem!" vs Friends with no/adult kids = "What? no way! too early!!!"
