Review: Silt's $1,000 Carbon XC Wheels
10 degrees engagement. To me, that is unacceptable. I went to a hydra hub and it the quick engagement makes things easier and more fun (also, less loud than previous Industry Nine hubs I have owned).

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 107 - How (And Why) Did You Start Mountain Biking?
After rupturing my spleen, I promised my mother I'd quit riding dirt bikes. I got my first mountain bike, a Velocitech Mountain Machine, in 1984. As that date reveals, I am old. I am much more risk-averse than 40 years ago. Therefore, I now allow myself a dirt bike (Beta XTrainer, sorry mom).

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 106 - What's Your Ideal Ride Look Like?
Eight hours! You guys are tough. I'm retired and can ride nearly every day. One to three hours leaves me without (additional) aches and pains and enough energy to do other things. I like fire road climbs and single track descents. Since I live in Salida, CO, I have plenty of choices (even in the winter). Afterwards, I prefer access to a real bed and a hot tub. Retirement is great, but I'd trade it for being younger.

Greg Minnaar Sustains Suspected AC Separation in Snowshoe World Cup Qualification Run [Updated with Video]
Heal soon GOAT. I also recently fought a tree, and the tree won. Unfortunately, that is the extent of our similarities on a bike.

First Look: The Digit Datum Has Shock Strut Suspension
Is the design compatible with carbon frames? Is a sub-20 lb trail bike in our future?

Review: BikeYoke Revive 2.0 Dropper Post
I hope the "updated saddle clamp" is a real improvement. I have had two Revives (and still ride one). The lower seat clamp snapped on both of them. Saki said this has never happened to anyone else.

Video: Montana's First Shuttle Bike Park Now Open
I prefer a well-equipped cabin or comfy hotel room (I am old).

Video: Mullet vs 29er With the Same Geometry - Which is Faster?
You are correct, he got the labels backwards on the first test. The Mullet was faster, and the difference was statistically significant. The t-test returns 6% statistical significance. In other words, if the bikes performed the same and the difference was due to random variation, a difference in means like the one observed would occur only six percent of the time. This is a good basis upon which to reject the null hypothesis (no difference in performance) in favor of the alternative hypothesis (there is a difference in performance). The Mullet was actually slower on the second course, also the opposite of what was reported. However, the difference was tiny and not statistically significant. Finally, he should have selected the bike for each run at random, like red or black from a deck of card. This would add to the validity of his inferences. "There are lies, damn lies, and statistics."

Video: Mullet vs 29er With the Same Geometry - Which is Faster?
I think the biggest advantage of the mullet configuration has been overlooked; they look totally bad-ass. I go back and forth on my Trek Fuel. My bike park tires (Assegais) are on the mullet wheels. However, this changes the geometry on the Fuel. I think this is a beneficial for the park, but I prefer the 29er geo everywhere else.
