Video: Flat Pedals Win Medals - But Are They Only Meant for Downhill?
@mountainsofsussex: yeah, understandable. The 2FO Roost are more similar to the Freerider Pro and just as grippy. I have both but use the DH more for the added toe protection and the style of riding I prefer. The one thing that does still bother me is the lack of asymmetry to clearly define left from right.

Video: Flat Pedals Win Medals - But Are They Only Meant for Downhill?
@cougar797: I had stocked up on Sam Hill Impact Pros once they discontinued them as I'm not a fan of the new Impact Pros but when since I ran out I have made the switch to Specialized 2FO DH shoes and while they have some differences that I have needed to adjust to they are pretty great and have the right amount of sole stiffness and the grip is just as good as Stealth which is the first time I've found that in a non-FiveTen shoe.

Video: Is This What It Takes To Win Races Now?
Filthy Ape claimed my wheel too (WAO Union) https://www.instagram.com/reel/Cv06pqQoMB9/. Luckily on the last day of my Whistler trip. I would still prefer a carbon rim vs aluminum.

The Actual Weights of 11 World Cup XC Race Bikes from Val di Sole
@Glory831Guy: yeah, I saw that but one tire insert making up that much weight would be surprising

Interesting that the Medium Liv is heavier than the Large Giant. Good looking bike tho.

Big Bear Bike Parks Announce Opening Dates
@oolongT the jumps at summit are great in general. Last year the tombstone jump developed a bit of a rut but otherwise there’s nothing wrong with the design of the lips. This video is from last July. I rode Whistler right after this for the first time and felt well prepared for A-Line and Dirt Merchant. https://youtu.be/DeJKQpG2Nf8

Pretty big difference in elevation which affects weather/snow fall. The base elevation for Whistler is ~2k ft and Snow Summit is ~7k ft. Then there’s the even bigger difference in budget and staffing capabilities.

Pinkbike Poll: Where Do High Pivot Bikes Make Sense?
@howejohn: I also have a V1 dreadnought as my primary bike. I would not have appreciated it as much earlier in my biking progression but with the experience I have now I feel like I can take advantage of the benefits and deal with the complications. As far as pumping the back side of features, I was say it is as good or better except in the tightest of transitions. The limitations there are more about chainstay and wheelbase lengths than the HP characteristics. A more aggressive riding position is rewarded but it does not require the kind of weight shifting that can cause instability on bikes with bigger front center to rear center ratios like my previous ibis bikes. The short rear end on those can stay tucked into tight transitions better but they also require a lot more work to keep traction on the front wheel so it’s a trade off.
