5 More Hardtails with Extreme Geometry
@m1dg3t: SO TRUE. I love riding a trail on a rigid bike with XC/CX tires one day, and with a 130/140 trail bike the next. Makes you appreciate both (and keeps you sharp)

@gumbytex: Then again there's riders who grew up on BMX and do more freeriding than XC flow. Wish I had one of those for urban freeride back in the day!

Announcing The 2019 DH Fantasy League - Build Your Dream World Cup Team Today
@game: lol I didn't say enduro bikes do it all (well, they sorta do, just not as well as a DH bike) I totally agree it's a conservative move to benefit the advertiser. I was saying that I understand their likely reasoning, and also maintain it looks super silly - so I'm guessing we agree.

Announcing The 2019 DH Fantasy League - Build Your Dream World Cup Team Today
@game: most people (even the downhill fans who play this game) are way more likely to ride a slash regularly than a session (guessing every week vs 3-4 times a year due to lack of bike park/dh trail access) Meaning the sponsor's bike gets more visibility time if it's a trail/enduro thingy. Stoked on the Slash prize, just looks very incongruous and would prefer a Session (have and will continue to buy LTtrail bikes, but a personal DH race machine is an impractical fantasy for me....perfect fantasy prize!)

Came here to say the same! OFC a trail/enduro bike makes much more sense for a giveaway, but wow that looks silly on the webpage/front page thumbnail.

7 of the Best Mountain Bike Lights Ridden & Rated
@danielsapp: totally get you can't review everything, but missing the only lights that adjust brightness with an inclinometer and accelerometer to achieve competition-crushing runtimes (advertising up to 36) in a self contained package... seems like a big oversight. I guess it would have put the other products under a less flattering light. Get us an exposure review please.

The Final Randoms - Core Bike 2019
@oldtech: true for plenty of things, but tbh this jacket makes more sense than ANY $7-10K+ superbike. IF you ride in the rain with any regularity, it is a better upgrade than pretty much any bike component. Try a $100 jacket and compare to a $200-300 jacket while riding hard in proper rain and get back to me - waterproofing, breathability, weight (and in some cases durability) are a night and day difference. So when it comes to money and sense, it always cracks me up to see jackets get so much flack compared to carbon and ti bits with pretty colors

Video: Gravel Bike Hucks with Elliott Heap
@SintraFreeride: ah, so you need a downcountry bike to ride fire roads then. nice. and everybody who enjoys riding a 50 mile loop with 30 miles of roads, 10 miles of fireroad and 10 miles of singletrack should also ride a downcountry bike. nobody said a gravel bike is the best for rough natural steeps at race pace. don't shit on it just because it's not your flave. also they are way more stable (longer and slacker!) than trad road bikes, so you might try making more sense next time.

@SintraFreeride: I take it you need 160-180mm of travel to ride fire roads and flow trails then?
