@Mattaberbay: Respectfully, you're digressing into things which you little idea about. Yeah, there was some ugly affair with some law disrespecting the Druze population here a few months back- but due to public pressure from a vast majority of Israelis, it was revised. You conveniently put aside decades of beautiful relations and equality between the Israeli state and the local Druze population. Go to Lebanon/Jordan/Syria - see the pogroms done to the Druze people there, then start drawing comparisons. You speak about African refugees, but have you ever stopped wondering why they (predominantly Muslim) flee to Israel and not seek asylum in any of the half dozen (Muslim) countries they pass on the way? I think you know most answers: a- Israeli soldies dont shoot them blindly when they approach the fence b- They dont fear enslavement/organ trade/human trafficking in Israel, something which can't be said about all our neighboring countries c- many of them are immigrants, not at all "refugees" , looking for a better economical opportunity. Israel tries to regulate illegal immigration just like any other country in the world. But no, you opt to write "you kick them out because they're African". Are you serious?! Half the Jewish population in Israel is from North Africa. Israel has gone out of its' way to rescue the Ethiopian Jeish community. You truly think it's a racial thing? C'mon. Come over, even for a few days, talk to real people about these issues, then form an opinion. Be more intelligent than those dime-a-dozen hate spewing pretentious bigots filling every online discussion just get a brief moment of moral superiority. :)

Thank you kona, for somehow managing to make a rather boring Aggy clip for pretty much the first time ever...

Review: Mondraker Foxy Carbon XR 29
@ShempHoward: I dont know. I've had my share of mileage on Giant bikes, and i can't say the difference in handling Vs. the Mondraker is "marginal". But let's agree to disagree? :) I wouldn't pay 9k for a bike regardless, i'll give you that.

Review: Mondraker Foxy Carbon XR 29
@ShempHoward: Try it, it feels so vastly different to the Maestro, mainly because it is inherently different. The maestro is a sort of DW ripoff, with a floating rear triangle but non floating shock. In the mondraker, the shock floats as well, i.e - not directly connected to the front triangle. The maestro feels very active, noticeably more under power, even bobby to an extent (especially standing up). The Zero Suspension is much more stable under power, sometimes feeling a little harsh. Mike really described it very well. Not to mention how very different Giant and Mondraker's geometries are - Giant have been pretty conservative with their trail bikes until now, even sporting outdated long stems. Mondraker have been at the forefront of the "modern" geometry trend, going longer and lower with the shortest stems, well... ever. Sorry to be honest, but you could've picked a better comparison :)

Review: Mondraker Foxy Carbon XR 29
@AlanMck: yeah, I've heard of a few that cracked or had pivot hardware issues. I do assume mondraker have improved this over time. Shame, cuz the rest of the frame is top notch in terms of quality.

Review: Mondraker Foxy Carbon XR 29
Great review. I reviewed the 27.5 Foxy XR a few years ago with nearly identical impressions (compared to other bikes at the time). Still holds quite a few of my personal records. I often feel a little pinch when i see people calmly riding Mondrakers on easy trails- such a waste. Those bikes revel when at high speed, loose and aggressive riding (and obviously, a little hefty on the more casual stuff) Wondering how it would compare to the Dune, especially going down.

Gwin's Ridiculous Scrub - La Bresse DH World Cup 2018
I hope that will put an end to "i dont really enjoy seeing Gwin ride, he lacks unique style" comments. I started getting sick of those...

Pinkbike Poll: How Often Do You Wash Your Bike?
@Seawild66: LoL, yeah. you got me. Can't stop the crazy flow of customers since i posted this reply. Can hardly keep up :) I did, many years ago. Enough time to see the damage excessive washing does. Now my job is vastly less interesting, trust me.

Video: Rémy Métailler Puts Cube's New DH Rig Through its Paces in Whistler
@remymetailler: First, i got a reply from Remy. Stoked. Can shut down my computer for the day :) You're right, it does happen in most bikes if saddle setup is incorrect. but i had this noise happen to me on this bike much more than any other model i rode in recent years, with a pretty high saddle and even when going into berms and such. It was a rental bike for a couple of days, so i admit setup wasn't top notch, but pretty well maintained. It's not only my opinion, other reviews had the same feeling - too linear of a suspension, with geometry numbers that dont belong on a DH bike (heck, i'm 1.81cm and HAD to ride an XL size. The reach was tiny). It was very good in twisty tight part, i'll admit that. I'm sure cube addressed some of these issues with latest models, as they have with their outdated Stereo which had similar problems. Also, since you ride dvo, and not the stock shocks, you have the privilege of setting up suspension vastly different to production models.
