First Ride: Race Face Releases New Era & Turbine Handlebars
@amaranth: Have you tried swapping the bars between bikes? A hardtail is not a fair comparison.

First Ride: Race Face Releases New Era & Turbine Handlebars
Also, as somebody who weighs ~140 lbs / 64 kg, I can say that the most compliant bars (Roost Ti) never feel even remotely flexy or noodley and the steering precision is excellent. I think most bars in general are way too stiff for lighter riders. This will likely never happen, but it would be really nice if companies would offer bars in 2-3 different stiffness options to suit riders of different weights.

@samdaman1: I've always thought it would be really cool if somebody did a similar vertical and lateral deflection test on hardtail frames by locking the BB and headset into a jig and hanging a weight from the rear axle.

@samdaman1: Great article! Would be cool if somebody measured fore/aft stiffness as well, since that will affect both comfort (as the bike pitches forward and backwards) and steering precision.

Propain Release New Sresh CF eMTB
I get 4000+ ft on boost with the older EP8 + 630 Wh. I imagine this is very similar maybe a bit less if you're really hammering, since the EP801 has better heat dissipation, which enables it maintain max torque output at higher RPM. But for the same motor output, the range should be basically the same.

Opinion: The Big Short - Smaller Wheels Don't Require Shorter Chainstays
@basken: I’m running a +2. That puts the head angle around 64 in the high position. The mixed wheels slacken it by about 1 degree, so you’d probably like the +2.

The MX Spire is such a fun bike. I’m surprised TR stopped advertising it as mixed-wheel compatible. I’ve got a angelset on mine to keep the head angle in check, but aside from that, the geo is dialed.

Burning Question: Where Do Wheel Component Manufacturers Stand on Tire Inserts?
Similar story here. Experimented with single-ply 60 TPI with Tannus and dual-ply 60 TPI with no insert on my hardtail. Same tread. I think the Tannus setup might pedal a little better, but I definitely prefer the more damp feel of the DH casing.

First Look: Specialized Kenevo SL 2 with SL 1.2 Motor
Yes, if anything it's even more important on an ebike, because the extra power encourages you to pedal up steeper climbs that you might normally walk or avoid on a normal bike.
