Concussions and LDL - Real World Data
Would be great to get brad to come in... I have read this transcript before. Seems like Kali is following this concept in the design of their helmets very closely.

Is Polygon's Square One EX9 the Elusive 'One Bike'? - Review
@teamtoad: you guys are killing me- every FSR bike doesnt weigh what an Enduro weighs... of course you could get the weight down for an XC application...

Is Polygon's Square One EX9 the Elusive 'One Bike'? - Review
After having ridden this bike i think many of the main points of the bike are missed in the review. It is so different that reviewers dont know how to talk about it. This review is trying to make this a trail bike, and its trying to frame the discussion around the "one bike" idea. The problem with this is its not its not a trail bike and its not supposed to be one bike for fitting all conditions. I would call this more of a true "enduro race bike" than anything before it... its geometry is dialed in for all but the steepest fastest WC tracks, its got 140mm at sag vs 130 at sag for a typical DH bike... yet it pedals out of the saddle like a rocket, and manages excellent firm cornering/pumping support... and all the time it has TRACTION that is consistent and copious... the deal with this bike is that it has the most traction of anything out there and it pedals with most stability and power transfer of anything remotely close to it... the one intended use as far as i can see is to burn up the trail at high speeds down the hill... which is not what a trail bike is about...

Finals Result: Fort William DH World Cup 2017
@Trailstunter: you mean those big fat 29er groupies like minnar, moir, and gwinn... Who even worse is a wanna-be 29er?!... I think you need to relax and just let the racers race...

All In Multitool – Review
@bman33: all forks used to have steel steerers with threads... the Canecreek ahead set allowed aluminum to be used since it didnt need threads, and then carbon.... aluminum was never used widely as a material for a threaded steerer... i have never heard of a threaded aluminum steerer, even on high end road bikes from the late 80's-early 90's (which is when they would have tried that)...

California Enduro Series 2017 Round 2: Toro Enduro
@Dustfarter: Hey- its a race and its hard if you go fast... you will have fun... if you want the EWS experience go to the Golden Tour events... they are all EWS qualifiers and follow the EWS style of demanding physical and technical courses... China Peak is coming up in July, and its all raw hand-built rocky with some quite steep tracks....

Ibis' New HD4 - Review
seems like it because you are on PInkbike... XC/Trail bikes outsell enduro bikes by a large margin... because you are 100% right on your point...

Trek Session 29 vs 27.5 – First Ride
@seraph: that was the feeling at a few companies but the market didn't jump on 29 outside of xc bikes... So they had to do 27.5 to not lose the sales... But they always thought 29 was better... Finally it's coming around...
