Henry’s Waffle House: Mountain Biking is Getting Too Easy
This really boils down to moving purely under our own power vs. electronic assist. Technological advances are great for any sport. If I can ride a trail/segment faster than I did because some innovation to kinematics/geometry/precision saves me some marginal degree of effort, I'm all for it! However, fuck e-bikes.

10 Products I Loved in 2021: Henry Quinney
Know what I loved in 2021? Not buying virtually anything other wear parts (tires, grips, and brake pads). Supply chain issues and cost increases are terrible for everyone, but a major silver lining for me is abandoning much of the unfortunate consumer culture pervading of our chosen hobby. Don't get me wrong, it has to suck for anyone wanting to buy their first bike or replace a broken one.

Slack Randoms: A High Pivot, Integrated Shock Scott Gambler Concept, Stick Shift Transmission & More
@unrooted: All meritocracy is in a capitalist society is ignoring the sheer luck and external factors attributing to one's success. However, it certainly helps the successful feel more proud of their accomplishments, so that's nice. The downside is it breeds indifference and selfishness towards the less fortunate.

@conoat: Since we're both apparently familiar with Sowell, you should understand the quote you shared undergirds virtually everything he's said and published through his whole career. Hell, he supports Donald Trump to this day. What's your point? Has he since disavowed his stance on equality? The basis of all human rights is equality. "Equality is a myth" is a sentiment misconstrued by reactionary republicans to mean "since equality is impossible, we won't pursue it at all" or establishing a pseudo-intellectual basis for lowering taxes on the rich (via dated Laffer/supply side jesus economics) and cruel, ineffectual immigration policy for example.

@conoat: It's a bullshit absolutist take by a nonagenarian partisan hack. The truth hidden in his blanket dismissal of human rights doesn't mean it mean we throw the baby out with the bathwater and endorse shitheels like Ted Cruz in 2016 and Donald Trump in 2020 (Sowell did).

Field Test: 2022 Niner Jet 9 RDO - The Easy Rider
@gth802s: Sorry, I meant to say my cycling inseam is 36" (6'-4") - big functional difference over 32"... I didn't try any other dropper sizes but was miffed at the 125mm the 2018 XL model came with. Couldn't be happier with the 210mm dropper, 77deg STA (not eSTA) on my current bike in the front range of Colorado.

Field Test: 2022 Niner Jet 9 RDO - The Easy Rider
The Jet 9 RDO is a frame in desperate need of a geometry overhaul. I rode an XL from 2018-2019, and it was just awful as a taller rider. You can tell just by looking at it that the STA is crap, the curved seat tube means it won't support a halfway decent dropper post insert (my XL came with 125mm lol), and the rear suspension felt like a hardtail - but that was hardly a positive as touted here. If you have a 32"+ inseam, you will extend the seat post to be well over the rear wheel, and good luck keeping your front end down on climbs, lol. The rear suspension has no business being as firm as it is. This might be a good bike in Florida, but you will suffer anywhere with mountains. The only positive thing I could say about the bike is it was attractive and pretty light for an XL full-suspension - mine weighed in just under 28lbs with a decent set of components.

First Look: Mondraker's New Enduro and Trail Bikes
@rich-2000: I'm 6'4 on an XL '18 Foxy XR. The only change that would make me consider swapping frames would be a steeper STA. Everything else is pretty dialed in for a guy my size (minus sometimes feeling like a stretch limousine around switchbacks)
