Video: Danny Hart Gets Loose on Steep Schladming Trails
insane- and to think Danny doesn't win every WC with speed like that. I was having trouble keeping up just watching.

Cascade Components Announces Transition Sentinel and Patrol Linkage
I have 3 rides in on my link and I can say without a doubt it's the single best upgrade I have ever purchased. Absolutely transforms the Sentinel. Props to Cascade - 10 yrs ago a works level linkage like this would have been only available to 1% of the top pro riders on a factory team. Now anyone can get a setup like this and there are tons of used Sentinels out there for great prices. Props to Transition - for flat out saying enjoy the tinkering to their loyal fans. Can't think of many companies cool enough to not void the warranty.

Video: MRP Can Now Deliver a Fork Set Up and "Ready to Shred"
I have had 2 Ribbon Coils so far. Originally the first Gen which I regretfully sold as part of complete bike and spent the next year trying to get the fox 36 on my new bike to feel as good as what I had just sold. I converted the 36 (factory RC2) to coil and did a full service on it but I jus't couldn't match the feel of the MRP. So I bought the next Gen Ribbon Coil and sold the converted 36. There's something special about the way the MRP tracks the ground. I don't know if its the perfect amount of built in chassis flex or if the magic is in the damping. All I know is I have grip in weird off camber sections that I never have with any other fork and I have more support in the mid stroke without any harshness than I have ever experienced with any other setup. Plus the Ribbon coil is about the same weight as most air forks and just looks badass if you ask me. I'm not selling this one!

Specialized Launches Mixed Wheel Size Demo
@JSTootell: if they do make all available to owners as a parts order for a reasonable price then cool. But why not just say that in the launch. It would just make them look like they care about their customer base had they just said ‘all parts will be available to existing Demo 29 owners’.

Specialized Launches Mixed Wheel Size Demo
Hey Specialized - how about including in the press release that you intend to sell the new rear end to owners of 2019/20 Demo 29’s This bike is still brand new. It would be a complete customer service ball drop to not make the parts all backwards compatible at a very fair price. That should be in the announcement.

Review: Giro's New Manifest Helmet
I'm guessing we will see a Bell version soon with better looks for $300.

Review: Deviate Highlander - There Can Only Be One
Good to hear about US demos coming. Don’t forget about the North East please. One suggestion I would like to make is partnering with either Push or EXT to offer the Highlander with one of those 2 amazing coil shocks at point of sale. I have to admit that 11-6 option from Fanatik is the one thing that has me still considering a Druid over a Highlander at this point. If you guys could get a combo deal together for about $3800 it would make this a very hard package to beat. It will pedal and descend better setup like that and end up cheaper than buying a mainstream high end frame and then buying one of those shocks aftermarket.

Review: Deviate Highlander - There Can Only Be One
@mikelevy: as someone who is seriously interested in the Highlander but won’t likely be able to demo it, would you say the smaller sizes would have a major impact on the overall balance of trail vs enduro bike. (I’d be on a medium or maybe small) Or did you get the impression that the feel of the bike is part of the design DNA and the smaller sizes won’t change it much? I’m really between trying this or the Druid as my next bike. I ride a transition Sentinel as my daily do it all for reference. (Mostly rolling terrain with 2-3 enduro races mixed in per season and a few bike park trips as well)
