Video: Cascadia Dirt Cup Course Recon
Post Canyon has like 30 minutes of good riding from when the dirt transitions from greasy mud to loose and blown out. OK, that might be an exaggeration.

First Look: Cavalerie's Blackbird Carbon Gearbox Bike - Garda Trentino 2019
I'm curious as to how much difference the drag actually makes. I don't care about losing a few seconds in an XC race either. Granted most any test is bound to be a bit subjective but I would like to do a like 20 mile ride with 4k feet of climbing on this bike and then like a week later the same ride on my current bike and see how much more gassed I feel at the end. I mean I know people have put out numbers but a coefficient of friction just doesn't give you a great idea like riding would. But if we are talking adding 5 minutes to a 5 hour day I can live with that for the convenience. Unfortunately the average Joe Blokef doesn't set the bike trends, the average Joe Blokef just buys what the pros buy and the pros can't lose 5 minutes over 5 hours.

Pinkbike Poll: How Do You Prefer to Get to the Top of a Descent?
@mkotowski1: We have areas around here with long climbs to downhills that involve no pedaling and we have more punchy up and down stuff too. The long sustained climbs are a grind, you don't want to breath too hard or you won't make it. I find the short punchy stuff to be a better workout. Though it is kind of nice to just get the climb over with then enjoy a pedal free descent.

Pinkbike Poll: How Do You Prefer to Get to the Top of a Descent?
depends... if it is just 1,000' I would probably take the trail cause it is a better workout. If it is part of like a 4,000' day I would probably take the road to leave some energy in the tank for the ride down. Of course if it is a very popular downhill trail I will always take the road cause IMO it is kind of dick to wreck everyone coming down runs.

Pinkbike Poll: How Do You Prefer to Get to the Top of a Descent?
yeah, you notice this a ton with skiing. I know some people that got into skiing from climbing. They hardly ski at the ski areas and mostly learned to ski to be better mountaineers. These people scare me cause they have the physical ability to get to places that they shouldn't with their downhill abilities, always afraid they will twist their knee or something.

might as well go with the most travel possible for your frame and inseam is my opinion.

@BsampSy: I never really considered inseam for sizing, sizing seems like it should be based more on torso length and then you raise or lower the height of the saddle based on inseam.
