EWS France Course Preview - Video
That was a testament to Chris and Rics riding skills when they can commentate a course preview whilst giving the impression they're just two mates out having a laugh.

Fashion vs. Fit: Is Longer Always Better? - Opinion
Great article, this argument was needed to counter the Geometron conquers all put forward a couple of years ago, that has been copied by every brand since. I.e. Lets keep getting longer, stability is all. The problem for me is bike manufacturers focus on on the longer,lower,slacker aspects, then assemble a bike with other variables such as bar with, tyre choice, crank arm length and acknowledge that customers will swap these out for their own prefered choices. At 6ft, with a in seam of 32" I guess I should be on a large or Xl but with the supplied stem of 40mm or 50mm I often over reaching so a whole bike package might not be the best option. Which is why I buy a frame and build up. The main point of the article is spot on the longer, lower, slacker argument has become overblown and distracting.

Specialized Update Enduro for 2018 - First Look - Crankworx Whistler 2017
Couldn't agree more I have the 2014 E29, according to the new trend I've been suffering unnecessarily. I'm 6ft in five tens and ride a medium with a reach (according to geometry charts) of 425mm - it feels perfect to me but you read this stuff and question your whole biking existence! My real world experience though has just been updated and confirmed- this week I'm lucky enough to be in Madeira riding with Freeride Madeira on some of the EWS stages, due to problems in transit my bike took a hit to the brake lever and rear mech, fortunately Freeride Madeira could supply a hire bike, another enduro, the 2017 650b comp, but they insisted, given my height I should by in a large size, as they know the trails and it's a different bike in wheel size I was happy to follow their advice. Sadly, throughout the ride I felt like I was 12 years old and riding my dads was just too long, on the steep rocky, tight corners I was struggling to hold on, added to which the often heard complaint that the BB is too high saw me regularly pedalstriking rocks, something I rarely do, as a result my confidence suffered and as result was glad when the ride ended. These constant updates in geometry and standards seem to me to aimed a very small % of riders, in fact Jared Graves, or chasing favourable reviews, it wasn't long ago the E29 was hoovering up accolades now it has so many issues the 2017 only lasted a year. As for boost, a clever trick, if I want a new frame, I now need new wheels and a new crank or clutter the bike I was happy with with the necessary adapters. The bike industry in my view just plays on insecurities and offers fixes.@WAKIdesigns:
