5 Bikes and a Few Tech Randoms: Albstadt World Cup XC 2019
@WAKIdesigns: ceramic bearings dont explode. Well only when you push them in wonky. They dont explode in use. They dont give you any speed/energy saving advantage at all, but they do last a very long time. So they only reason not to run them i can think of is the cost issue you mention. But then these guys are the worlds top pro's. They arent paying for them. I dont get why dt arent pushing them to ride the most expensive snake oiliest hubs they produce. It seems silly not too.

Correctly fitted, ceramic bearings should outlast stainless ones many times over. Ceramic is far harder than steel. Which is nice seeing as it gives you essentially 0.000% actual performance advantage in terms of watts used. I gotta admit I'm confused by their choice of hubs too. Top riders riding top end hubs should be a no-brainer from both the rider and DT's point of view. Why on earth aren't they running them?

Normally hate the pun chains taking over comment threads, but the first 4 in this chain genuinely made me laugh

Final Results: British National Downhill - Round 2 Fort William
Hahaha. Betsie gets it. As for the guy who suggested I'm not a fan and haven't heard of Brayton. Literally made him a coffee and had a chat about his suspension settings a few weeks ago. But yeah sure, never heard of the guy.... Obviously you are a much bigger fan than me though. What with your in depth knowledge of the results of the British Champs race :D

Video: French Mountain Biker Goes Viral After Almost Crashing into A Group of Students
@oldtech: erm. You seem to be misunderstanding the concept of stairs. Roads are designed for cars, train tracks for trains. Stairs are designed for pedestrians. Sitting on the stairs like this will cause no issue for pedestrians, so your comment makes no sense. Nothing wrong with the kids sitting there. The guy on the bike however is a thoughtless idiot, and the kids whos stuff he ran over are very cool for not getting angry

First Look: Cavalerie's Blackbird Carbon Gearbox Bike - Garda Trentino 2019
I for one hope all bikes look something like this in a few years time. Come on bike industry, give us the sudden, expensive, unavoidable "standards" change that people are actually asking for.
