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.

Gwin's Not Racing MSA, But He is Training on a 29" YT Tues
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...

Replaceable dropouts are nice in case threads get stripped or hub standards change. Its cheaper and easier to manufacture if the dropout mount is shared with brake adapter.

Agreed. Touch the rear brake on bike park braking bumps and the rear of this bike will be bouncing all over the place.

Review: Commencal's Supreme DH 29 is an Unflinching Race Weapon
Add a floating brake mount and I'll be throwing my money at Commencal. Having ridden a high pivot bike back in the day, I am not a fan of brake squat. Having a DH bike turn into a hardtail under heavy braking is not my idea of an ideal suspension design. Sure, any pro rider could win races on this bike. But I'm not that pro rider... I want always active suspension. My 9 year old canfield Jedi has lots of rearward travel and an idler... but is short in the cockpit and not slack enough compared to most modern geos. Hmmm. Bike lust is strong this season.
