28 Handlebar & Stem Setups of Enduro World Cup Riders
@toxic-toast: And generally it's hard to find 35mm bars with high rise numbers and/or more back sweep. Just big fat straight and stiff pipes. Plenty of options in 31.8mm!

Review: 2023 Orbea Oiz M-Pro - Don't Call it Downcountry
As a general fan of the brand, their version of cable tourism is particularly bad. The decision to run cables straight down from both sides is totally weird. You either force them in from under your bars and make a unnecessary tight bend in them, or above the bars and it looks hideous. Also the need to leave enough cable housing so you can install/remove the dropper is a problem, when the dropper is in the frame the cable needs to go somewhere so you have plenty visible on the cockpit side or you shove it inside the frame and hope it still works with the kinks...

First Look: Rulezman Releases Super Short 15 & 18mm Stems
@TheRamma: Funny that you mentioned Pole. The Evolink was released in 2016 i think and was laughed at almost universally for ridiculous geo that just won't work on anything that includes turning. Today everyone of you are riding bikes with almost identical geometry.. :)

First Ride: Wildwood Cycles Titanium Trail Bike
No one worried about the non bridged rocker and a trunnion combo? X2 exploding in 3, 2, 1...

First Look: Rulezman Releases Super Short 15 & 18mm Stems
@TheRamma: You also forget that the best in the world have honed their skills to absolute "perfection". That's why they sometimes have these weird setup quirks and are ultra picky about brake lever angles and whatever. On the top it's not as much about what is the fastest bike, it's more about what is the fastest for this particular athlete. That why all of them are not on full 29" bikes for example.

@TheRamma: If you try something different and don't become faster straight away, doesn't mean it's worse. It just means it doesn't work for your learned skillset. You need to learn to ride with a different style and body position to take advantage of a long bike, and many are not willing to take the time to learn that, especially pros. Almost everyone is riding bikes now that were deemed unrideable 5 years ago, because the change has been slow and gradual.

Pinkbike Poll: How Much Does Your Bike Actually Weigh?
I think this is really simple: you make your bike as light as you can while it still can take the abuse you throw at it. Lighter, less agressive riders need lighter bikes. Big heavy hitters need burly bikes. Bodyweight/bike weight is the most relevant number.
