Spotted: Ohlins RXF 38 Fork With 1.8" Steerer
@PAmtbiker: which makes sense if you beef up the csu interface.

Industry Nine Announces Expanded Carbon Wheelset Lineup
@WAKIdesigns: You're getting downvoted but you speak the truth. People obviously love to justify their expensive purchase. I have never seen or heard someone spend that much and then admit they don't like them. But I have personally seen two people ride carbon for a couple years, then end up back on aluminum. I'm of the same mind... expensive for no weight benefit and a worse, harsh ride. The only way I can see the argument is if you happen to destroy multiple wheels a year. I don't and I use CushCore for much more than just the wheel saving benefits. I also race 5 to 7 enduros a year... and yes it's just for fun, but destroying a wheel mid race, ruins my whole race, flushes the work and entry down the tube... and will I get a new wheel in time for the next race? Or at least in time to pre-ride and train for it? I'll stick with aluminum. I also ride a bike with a 157 rear end which allows you to build a bomb proof aluminum wheel as well.

The Matchup: 2020 Norco Optic or Sight? - Trail Bike vs All-Mountain Bike
@eh-steve: Ya, its been interesting hearing his reviews and comparisons to the enduro. Sounds like he bought the enduro when he thought he was going to be able to get up to the Bike park a lot and it would be a bike that could do it all and so he wouldn't need and could sell his DH bike. But since he can't do that right now... he seems to be leaning towards his Enduro being too much and too big of a bike... just my thoughts. Ya, the Sight is great, and I haven't heard any bad reviews about it. I demo'd one before I bought my bike (I owned the 2017 version (140/150), loved it but it was a very different bike to the Sight now), but didn't buy the new Sight I've been on a Range as well. The Sight basically takes the place of the current range solely based on geometry... it ultimately maybe can't take quite the same hits on the extreme end of things as the Range... but right now, I way rather be on the new Sight vs the old Range. It'll be interesting when they announce the new Range... rumours say it'll be a high pivot big bike like the Slayer or the Enduro or the Warden LT. So, take the Sight geometry, add 20mm of travel on both ends, plus a rear end that gets out of the way of hits. Too much and too big for me... but will probably be a cool bug bruiser of a bike. The Sight really did pedal well... but I ended up with a Knolly Warden (VanCan demo'd and reviewed it as well). I felt it road a lot like the Sight (aggressive geometry), but has a lot of features that took everything to the next level. Suspension performance... a 157 rear end combined with the suppleness and support of the 4x4 system is really something that needs to be ridden to fully understand. It's also stiffer laterally than anything I'd ever ridden, yet the suspension works so beautifully. Being so stiff from the links on back, allows the suspension to do it job The attention to detail and frame construction gives you a bike that is supremely "tuned"... nothing I rode before or demo'd rode like the Warden. And nothing allowed me to go as fast as easily as I could on the Warden. I'd say the Sight pedals a little bit better than the Warden, but my Warden is also a 160/170 and descends better, which is a priority for me.. most of my rides tend to be long fire road climbs followed by long steep descents. Anyway... my two cents.
