Review: TRP's New DH-R EVO Brakes
I prefer DOT due to better performance in winter. I've never had a problem with corrosion issues or paint problems in 5 or so years of bleeding SRAM brakes and 4 bikes in the family over that time.

Results: eMTB - Mont-Sainte-Anne World Champs 2019
What’s more embarrassing, telling people that you raced an ebike race or that you didn’t win despite having a motor on your bike?

Review: Shimano's All-New XT 4-Piston Brakes
@clink83: Yep, I agree! That’s why the OP’s argument that 4/5 people can’t bleed them right makes no sense. The reality is that they are so simple to bleed and almost everyone bleeds them in accordance with Shimano’s instructions, and if 4/5 people are having problems with the brakes there’s a brake design problem not a user bleed problem. On the other hand if the OP maintains that 4/5 people can’t bleed them correctly them Shimano hasn’t made the bleed process easy enough. But Shimano did. It’s very easy to follow their instructions.

Review: Shimano's All-New XT 4-Piston Brakes
Brake manufacturers should be making brake bleeds idiot proof. If 4 out of 5 people can’t bleed Shimano brakes correctly then that’s a Shimano design flaw. You shouldn’t have to be “good” at bleeding brakes to do it right. But as said, the wandering bite point problem is a design flaw that occurs with correctly bled Shimano brakes of late.

Review: The 2020 Santa Cruz Hightower Gets a New Look & More Travel
Yeah, the SC frames seem to be trending up in weight which is too bad given the price point. I went from a gen 3 Nomad which was just over 28 lbs (Pike/X2/carbon wheels), to a Hightower which is 29 lbs (36/X2/carbon wheels). I actually did an XC race on the gen 3 Nomad and swapped tires, pedals, and grips and was able to get the weight down to about 26 lbs. Anyways, I do lots of long trail rides and at this weight I would just go for the Megatower if I was deciding between the two.

First Ride: Yeti’s New SB150
As a redhead riding in 95-100F heat in the summer my body sweats out about 2 bottles per hour, a single bottle only works for under 1500k feet of climbing and then I drink a bunch when I get home. Totally depends on genes, where you live, and how hard you are pushing.

Practice Photo Report: Diamond in the Rough - EWS Whistler 2018
Agree no pines, but I think most of those in that pic are western hemlock.

First Ride: Marin Alpine Trail
Former Jeffsy owner here. The pedal bob and rear flex of that bike drove me crazy. Good value parts spec though, and those parts are now on a different frame.

Review: Intense Sniper XC Elite
Constraining the rear tire size has got to be for weight, but can it save that much? Would love to know approximate amount that saves.
