Norco Sight C 9.2 – Review
I will just assume Ellsworth's ICT patent has expired, because the virtual pivot spot for that Sight lines up ahead of the front wheel about six inches beyond the tire edge and roughly level with the upper chain path and front axle, like on ICT bikes.

Catharine Pendrel's Orbea Oiz Bike Check - XC World Cup Round 1, Nove Mesto
The racers today have it so easy... full suspension, wagon wheels, tubeless tires, electronic gears, unobtanium hoo-hahs, and they don't even need to carry their own tools/spares anymore as there's entire field mechanic stations along the course where they can get everything the pro-roadies do short of a complete bike change I believe. We'll never see pro riders like Andy Tout again..who after repeating as Canadian National XC champion in 89-90-91 finished the 93 championships on his rims after suffering three flats on course. I have video of the race of him doing a full lap on just his rims including riding down the boardwalk ramp in the start/finish area.

Large Bear Chasing Rider Caught on GoPro – Video
@Lashidalgo: I almost didn't survive my friends coming down the trail behind me who nearly ran me over. I had gone first because my 2-C battery halogen light was the brightest one of the three of us. A whopping 1.25 watts of bulb output... good for all of maybe 10 lumens. Anyone old enough to remember the lights know the ones I mean, and that a $3 LED blinker from a dollar store today is brighter and more useful. Black bear encounters are actually a reasonably regular occurence around here while trail riding, I have one at least yearly. The XC sunset series races at Camp Fortune in Chelsea,QC in the 90s routinely had bears on-course and riders just waited for them to move off-course before they went around them. I ride with a bear banger launcher on the front straps of my hydro-pack to this day as a result. Two years ago I rode past the resident bear in the south march highlands trail system trying to get away from the cloud of mosquitoes and blackflies which were driving me insane. It was about 2 meters to the side of me when I went past. Growled a hello and that was it. Hasn't attacked a single rider/hiker in the ten years its been living in that forest.

If you meet a bear in the woods and don't know what kind it is, climb a tree. A black bear will climb the tree after you, and then eat you. A grizzly bear will knock the tree down, and then eat you.

Large Bear Chasing Rider Caught on GoPro – Video
I impacted a black bear in the gatineau park 27 years ago. Night time. Dicky little cateye bike light. I got like eight feet notice he was standing in the trail eating a berry bush. He got no notice at all until he took 200 pounds of impact to his ribs. I launched over bars and bear and bear launched into the forest.

Scott Spark 900 - Review
"There are no ISCG tabs, which is acceptable on a 120mm-travel bike" Why is the lack of such tabs even worth mentioning ? Its a 29er XC bike with a clutched derailleur and narrow-wide chainring.... it doesn't need a chain guide.
