First Ride: Polygon's $3,299 Collosus N9
Did polygon already increase the price on this? Website says $3499 although spec is slightly different (yes I'd pay an extra $200 for the 38 performance elite listed, but the deore cassette is heavy) Still this seems like a great deal these days for the build on it. Could probably drop a little over a pound with wheels and tires when they die/blow up.

Short or Long-Travel: Which Is The Best All-Round MTB?
This is great content and super useful. Interesting to see how limited the differences in efficiency are when you can just sit and spin smoothly up a fire road. I'm curious how something like their Scout hardtail would do too. I'd also be interested in seeing the difference in timing on some sort of timed "course" that also has some technical climb features, etc. Also maybe break it up into a blue, black and double black descent. I'd imagine pro enduro/xc riders do this type of back to back testing, but you're less likely to see it for "trail" riding.

Field Test: 6 Downcountry Bikes VS the Efficiency Test
Respect on the w/kg. Just giving you a hard time, I'm sure you're pretty fatigued after all the field test rides... appreciate the suffering for us

@mikelevy: 300W for 2.5 Min and you're that out of breath? Time to hit up zwift setup.

How would an HR monitor affect wattage output? 300W is 300W whether you're at 130bpm or 200bpm. There's an argument for consistency of output, but as highlighted multiple times, this is bro science. More likely that how many times he rode over gravel vs hardpack or how aerodynamic he was would have just as big of an impact. Time spent standing and mashing would also be an interesting variable as the 300W at the pedals would still be eaten up by the suspension

Intense Launches 2023 Tracer 29
This is the first time in 10 years I've been somewhat interested by an intense, and that's only because the frame only version is nearly $1k less than a santa cruz on what should be a similar suspension platform.

13 Bikes That Could See An Update In 2023
So according to one guy on the tgr forums Backcountry/competitive cyclist will not be fulfilling the orders placed as it was a mistake. They are offering a discount to those who placed orders, but not 50% off

Anyone know if the CC liquidation was on purpose or a mistake last night? Those things seemed way too cheap.
