Pinkbike Poll: Would You Rather Have an Air or Coil Sprung Shock on Your Trail Bike?
Coil for performance and durability. Air for loaning bikes between friends of different weight.

Video: Top-Speed World Record Smashed at 183 mph on a Bicycle
The wheel needs to be durable at 184mph but yet not too heavy so that gyroscopic effects are minimized. Smaller diameter helps with that and with a flat surface like the salt flats, larger diameter has little to offer.

By your logic, going downhill is deceiving too because you don't have to pedal as hard. Just enjoy the accomplishment. We all know you can't go 184mph on a bike without drafting or descending. Or did you not realize that? ;-)

XC Tech: Lenzerheide World Championships 2018
@spaceofades: 4mm bolts are a nightmare? lol I find flat mount easier to center even with the bolts being under the chain stay. It could be because the mount face is perpendicular to the bolts and with no planetary washers, nothing moves when you cinch down the bolts. Another added bonus is that you can use a multi tool during a ride. A lot of frames and even some brake calipers (such as guide) have one mounting bolt that requires a round head allen. A straight allen can't reach the bolt head. With flat mount, both mounting screws are accessible with any multitool.

Canyon appears to have the "flat mount" brake mounting standard as seen on newer disc equipped drop bar bikes. Or at least the frame has those mounts but there appears to be an adapter allowing a post mount caliper on a flat mount frame. But at least the frame is flat mount. That's good news because post mounting standards suck. WTF do we still use planetary washers? And why are calipers mounted so far from the frame with needlessly large and complicated adapters? The mountain bike industry needs to dump the post mount brakes.

Video: Top 3 Slopestyle Runs - Crankworx Whistler 2018
Fedko was crazy clean compared to even Rheeder and Rogatkin! I had to watch it in slo-mo a few times to really appreciate the precision.

Because a possibly 29er was photo'd in a parking garage... That coffin of yours must be awfully easy to nail.

OneUp's EDC Plug & Plier Kit Claims to Fix Flats in Under a Minute
WTF would you want to do the extra work and expense of putting a tube in and then at some point taking it back out and still needing to patch the tire? That's a pain in the ass when you can put a plug in, pump up the tire and be back to normal in one minute. Most of the time the plug is a permanent solution.

Slow Down To Go Faster - Yoga With Abi
I’ve been doing yoga by accident? No joke. I’m over 5 weeks into a concussion and office work worsens my headache, triggering all kind of stress related issues in the body. My solution is to close my office door and lie flat, eyes closed, concentrating on nothing but breathing and relaxing each part of my body separately. Perhaps I should read up on it to improve the technique...
