YT Announces New 2019 Jeffsy
I wish they had bumped the travel up to 150 on the lower specced models and not just the pro race model

Field Test: Giant Trance Advanced 29
@danielsapp: Yeh for sure. I don't mean to discredit the review or Giant or DVO, the article even calls out the fact that this is a common refrain. Kudos for following up!

Field Test: Giant Trance Advanced 29
So weird how every time some component breaks in a bike test it's because it was a prototype that should have never left the shop

Mark Weir Hospitalized Following 'Widow Maker' Heart Scare
My father in law (and the guy who got me into MTB) had this same heart attack while out building trail and thankfully also survived and has been able to get back on the bike. I have since seen a bunch of anecdotes of otherwise very healthy people suffering the same. It would be interesting to find a common thread on what causes this type of event. Good luck to Mark in the recovery process.

Giant Reign Advanced 1

$1700 USD
Selling this bike: https://www.giant-bicycles.com/us/reign-advanced-27dot5-1-2015 I raced enduro on this bike for the last couple years and jumped in the occasional xc race with the travel adjust. It has a few cosmetic scratches on frame but otherwise is in great shape. I was going to use this as my enduro race bike this year and just fell in love with another bike, so I'm deciding to part ways. Since I was going to race it this year I fully tore everything down including the following services. The bike has only been test ridden since all of this work has been done. - all new pivot bearings - Full rebuild on fork and shock (upgraded damper seal head in pike) - Dropper post bleed - new Maxxis Minion DHF and DHR WT tires front and rear tubeless - new XT cassette, chain, derailleur (The bike is set up 1x11) Other upgrades: - New (2017?) Reverb, after rockshox fixed the reliability issues, also have the newer reverb dropper lever (the one that look like a shifter lever) - Stan's Arch MK3 wheelset laced to Hope Pro 4 hubs - Shimano XT brakes - MRP Sxg chain guide

Race Report and Video: Eastern States Cup Showdown Round 2 - Thunder Mountain
That is just a tautology, not due to the event itself. One can go to thunder and be the only one there and still spend more time on the lifts than riding, unless riding really slowly. Given there were 425+racers there plus the general public, I think George, Chris and crew handled everything smoothly and put on a great event. Looking forward to the next one!

Nukeproof and Smith - Bike Connection Winter 2018
What does this mean, i.e 22/29%: "according to studies Smith found that 22/29% of impacts are on the sides of the head, so this is where the Koroyd material is utilised."
