Anyone know whats up with Isak Leivisson riding a Canyon? I thought he was riding for Pole these days? Either way, beautiful riding style and he seems to be on some serious pace the last few races!

Bike Check: Yoann Barelli's Commencal Meta 29
I can confirm these issues. I also needed to warranty my rocker link and yoke link because the excessive flex caused metal on metal grinding and wore away too much material. I also had a pretty good gauge starting to form on my downtube where the pivots exited, but I put a layer of velcro tape there before it got too bad.

Bike Check: Steve Peat's Santa Cruz Hightower LT - Trans Madeira 2018
The slack seat tube angle on the HTLT is its major downfall. Even though I have very short legs (28inch inseam, 5'9"), and therefore should feel less of an impact than a long legged rider, I felt the climbing position was really uncomfortable and inefficient. It feels as if you are hanging way off the back and pushing forwards on the pedals instead of down. Comparing the HTLT to a bike like the Transition Sentinel (my current bike), which is probably ~4lbs heavier, I still find the Sentinel to be a much better climber, as it allowed me to pedal from a much more bio mechanically advantageous position, with my weight centered over the BB and my pedal stroke pushing down instead of forwards. This is especially advantageous on steeper climbs.

Ultimate Bike Check: Phil Atwill's Propain Rage Carbon 29"
I totally came here to write this. Nose length is the cornerstone of any good bike check.

Formula Cura Brakes - Review
Never ridden a Hope brake, but I've heard great things. However, most people are probably like me and have only ridden SRAM or Shimano brakes in the last few years, so my guess is that comparing the Cura's to a Hope brake isn't all that helpful for a lot of readers.

Totally agree. Really good track and great coverage by Red Bull. I would like to see the fastest qualifier start last, but I think it'll take some time for the UCI and those involved to work out the kinks. Overall I think having protected status for last season's top finishers is smart. A guy like Gwin or Minnaar could have their campaign for a championship derailed by a freak mechanical in qualifying at the first race, and that doesn't seem fair.
